Game: Tales of Berseria (Japanese Version) Creator: Namco Bandai Release Date: August 18, 2016 Platform: PS3 Walkthrough Version: 1 Last update: October 15, 2016 Author: Lillian Yeung (shockinblue) Standard disclaimer: I own no rights to the game, but the game is the basis of this walkthrough, a guide to help others play, enjoy, and beat the game. I only own what I've written. *** PLEASE TAKE NOTE *** Updated October 15, 2016: The ex dungeon is a little too tough on my patience level so I will -not- be doing this dungeon. I will leave behind what I've already typed out below, which is getting you to the first puzzle room. Beyond that you will have to find another guide, Japanese or English, official or otherwise, to help you get through it. Winter is a busy time for me at work, so I'm shelving Berseria away at this point. Thank you to everyone who has visited and used the guide. I wish you all good luck in completing the ex dungeon! I've covered the main storyline and the side quests, so as far as I'm concerned, this guide is finished. *** THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT *** ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- TABLE OF CONTENTS I.

Copyright [CPY] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- INTRODUCTION [INT] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- In respects to this walkthrough: Hey, it's me again, back with another walkthrough. My guides are not the best, and they are not 100% complete; I am merely writing down what happens as I progress through the game myself. Therefore, I will miss things, I might get some translations wrong, but I am trying my damn best to make sure people who use this guide can get through the game with as good of an understanding as possible. Especially if your Japanese isn't very proficient but you want to play the game anyways. I will do my best to cover all the side quests, mini-games, and collections i.e. Discovery Points if there are such. I might miss some, forgive me in advance. I will also be randomly naming side quests to the most relevant title I can think of if the game doesn't supply it. I also tend not to care for trophies or the EX dungeon, just the storyline. In respects to the game: Tales of Berseria is another mothership title, and a distant, distant prequel to Tales of Zestiria. If you've played Zestiria, you will see some reoccurring themes in this title. Certain logos, concepts, and characters that were mentioned or seen in Zestiria, but hold a different form in Berseria. You can search up the title of the game if you need a synopsis of the game's plot. The version I'm playing, PS3 Japanese, is available in Japan only. In the West it will be the PS4 version. Not sure if there are any real differences as I do not own a PS4 and have no intention of getting one anytime soon. Do note that this is the last PS3 entry for the "Tales of" series. I believe one of the head honchos mentioned so. In regards to translations: The game is in Japanese, I will be using a mixture of an online Japanese dictionary and Google Translate to figure out certain kanji, and then I will translate it into something sensible in English to the best of my ability. There's a 90% chance I will not be buying the English PS4 version, because I do not own a PS4 presently, just to update translations in the future. Warning you all now. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHARACTERS [CHR] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PARTY: VELVET CROWE o Awesome solo female protagonist o Has a closet full of skeletons o Wicked (literally) left arm o Her goal: revenge ROKUROU RANGETSU o Swordsman o Suffers from daemonblight like Velvet o Reminds me of Raven from Vesperia, I kid you not.

If you've been watching the trailers, most of the scenes in the movie were also in the trailers. But this song is love. Absolute awesome. Even the start screen is awesome, what the heck. Start the new game, choose your settings (I left all on default) and start. Watch the opening anime movie. CUTSCENE SUMMARY: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is clearly part of Velvet's backstory. So basically the village is under attack or daemonblight, or the Crimson Night, pick and choose the term you want to go with it. Artorius is carrying a really young Velvet and Laphi (her brother) to safety but decides to hide them inside a hollow tree trunk. Artorius gives her an apple and says that he'll come back for them after he rescues Celica (Romaji: SERIKA). Velvet will protect her litte bro Laphi because she is Artorius' student. Artorius runs off and then Velvet will hear Celica's screen in the distance followed by a beam of light. The kids will then run away from a daemon, straight to Artorius who is standing at an alter/ruins of sorts. It visual flashes briefly and then Velvet wakes up from her nightmare. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Velvet wakes and fights another daemon, eats it. The world has changed for her since then. All she feels is the bloody flesh she eats and the hatred for that man. Back to the past we go! ~ Village that invites nostalgia, Abal ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Apple Gel o Resist Ring Notice here that Velvet refers to Artorius as Arthur. So he has to step out on some business, so Velvet decides that she will fight some boars to get the money needed to buy medicine for Laphi. The game also gives you a map of the controller. Let's see... L2 BUTTON: - R2 BUTTON: - L1 BUTTON: Reset camera R1 BUTTON: Event List Directional Pad: - SQUARE: Map Left Stick: Move character TRIANGLE: Long Chat SELECT: Pause Game CIRCLE: Confirm START: Menu X: Cancel Right Stick: Move camera For some reason despite that diagram, I'm using X to confirm and O to cancel my actions, maybe it's because I'm using the North American PS3? Head outside for a quick summary of the Mini Map, Location Map and Event List. You'll also find gravestones of Velvet's parents, and her sister Celica, as well as one for Celica and Arthur's unborn child. So does this make Arthur her brother-in-law? Head north, in the next area you can activate a chat for Velvet. She's going to make some awesome boar stew for Arthur, like her sister used to make. The girl on the stones will tell mention that Laphicet was seen outside the store talking to himself just like Arthur does sometimes. Velvet thinks he must have been talking to Seles. Head down the main path and talk to the man crouched down to learn more about the past. It's been 7 years since "Kaimon no Hi" or the day the gates opened and brought daemonblight. All those with daemonblight who turn into goma/daemons end up going berserk and attacking people. If you go up the stairs and talk to the little girl, she says she wants Laphicet to get better so that they can go play again. Head south and Velvet will say to stock up before heading out. At the south point by the well is a chest with APPLE GEL. Head to the item seller, there's a RESIST RING in the chest beside him. He only sells Apple Gel for 100 gald each. And you only have 200 gald. But you also have 4 apple gels already. Across from them you'll find the save sphere. The left exit is blocked (it leads to Morgana's Forest... and again with the Arthurian Legend!). Take the north path and talk to the granny staring at the tree. She says their circumstances are a punishment from the gods, or something along those lines. She also reveals that Velvet is already 13 (Velvet is actually, 16). Take the exit. ~ The Quelling Woods ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Apple Gel Take the north turn and follow it east to a dead end for shiny spots. Backtrack and take the south path to the first gold star on the map to encounter the first boar. Your controller might shake when it notices you. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Soul Instructions: press the buttons in that order to perform an attack sequence. Do it twice to continue. Then attack until you deplete soul to clear the next step. Head south, you can't jump the gap yet, so follow the path to the next star. BATTLE TUTORIAL: SG (Soul Gauge) Instructions: fight until you complete run out of soul. Next hold L1 to refill the gauge. L1 is also the camera reset button. Do this twice to clear the tutorial. Pick up the APPLE GEL. Head north. Can't do much about that boulder yet, so use the save sphere and continue. Fight the last boar and Velvet will say that's enough to swap for the medicine. Check the grounds around and behind the ruins for shiny spots. Go back to the front of this ruin and go up the stairs. Look around for some more shiny spots and then check out the hole in the middle for a long chat. Head back and just before exiting the woods, there will a horde battle. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Ougi and Weakness Instructions: Enter the menu and select artes. But Koukajin (the last arte) in the X button slot and use the arte twice. One of the boars will experience daemonblight and Artorius will come to the rescue. Velvet cannot see the Malak (Seirei). He comes telling you that his plans have been delayed, his friend will not make it tonight. He wants Velvet to head back first and collect the medicine, he will deliver the boars. Also there's been daemon sightings close to the village, if Velvet comes across one, she is to run away without hesitation. Velvet asks if she can become an exorcist too, so that she can fight the daemons. Artorius says that to become one, you need to have a certain power. But those with the power are few in numbers and rarely exist anymore. Head back to the village and a scene will take place. The comb will make an appearance. The merchant will tell you the medicine hasn't been restocked yet. You'll get 3 apple gels for free. Turn back around and talk to the dogs & Nico. They'll mention that the dogs have been crying (whining) as of late. Clearly the animals know what's up. The item shop now carries some weapons and armour. AMBER BLADE 300 Gald AMBER BELT 330 Gald AMBER GARMENT 345 Gald WIND RING 324 Gald AMBER BOOTS 357 Gald I have no idea if any of these items will be transferred after this prologue bit. And you still only have 200 gald. Head home for a scene. Velvet will visit the grave markers. She will mention that she forgot to pick up some Princessia flowers for her parents and promises to get some tomorrow for them. Go home. Laphicet will talk about the compass. And he really can hear the voice of Malaks. Laphicet has the potential to become an exorcist, or so they say. He also wants to travel the world with Velvet and protect her from daemons... but... that's not possible. Star the fire in the fireplace. Check the dining table for two books. One is Artorius' book that Laphicet was reading. The other is his diary where he says Velvet should up her feminine appeal. Haha. Go up the ladder and check the shelf at the end. Go back to his room and check on him. Go to the kitchen counter and start cooking. In the morning, run into the village for scene. Laphicet is missing. The merchant will tell you that Laphi traded a book for something instead of the compass. He can't tell you much so keep going. Turn back around and talk to Nico. She wants to use the dogs to search for Laphicet, but the dogs aren't willing to go as if they're afraid of something. If you talk to the guy at the west exit he will mention that Laphicet is exceptionally bright, so much so that he could easily get into the elite academy and become a scholar. If you talk to the guy one the way out the east exit, the guy will mention that tonight is another Crimson Night. Head into the woods and find Laphicet. Velvet will decide to take him to see the ocean. She also warns him the next time he runs off, she'll tie him to the bed. Save. Head to the cliff area for another scene. You will then be attacked by a gouma. BOSS?: Bloody Wolf Lvl 4 HP: 1415 None of your hits matter, survive long enough for a scene. Artorius will save the day. When she wakes briefly she receives the comb and Laphicet says he will create a world where she can be happy. When in control, that clearly wasn't a dream. Head out for a scene, I don't believe you will be able to fight any of the enemies here, them being gouma and all that, so just run all the way back to the cliff area. When in control you'll be forced into battle against a bunch of gouma. You can now attack and kill them. Turns out they were all villagers to begin with. This only makes her madder. And just like that, her world ended. Watch the following scene where Seles comes down and forces you into another battle tutorial. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Around Step Instructions: While holding L1, use the left stick to perform around step whens she attacks you. BOSS: Seles Lvl. 5 HP: 1572 Resist: Wind Defeat her and she will claim that she is no longer Artorius' seirei. She wants to talk about what's happened in the last three years, but Velvet only wants to know where Artorius is. Seles says the ritual he performed three years ago changed the world, and now stands at the top of the world as the saviour. But it was entirely completed, she can still kill him at this point. Seles will reveal the details if they manage to get out of here successfully. ~ Prison Island Titania ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Battle Boots o Life Bottle o Wind Ring o 320 Gald [HERBS] o Sage o Verbena From your starting point, make a right and check the area for shiny spots, do so again at the other end. Take the only exit available to the storage room. Open the chest in this room to pick up some items. Among them: rope, Gouran which is a weapon for a certain someone, and things she makes into clothes. You'll be interrupted by an exorcist. I'm actually really glad she took the rope. She didn't in the Zestiria anime, which was silly. Rope is always handy. Exit out the other door and use the save. Take the south exit, you cannot use the north one. You'll be introduced to this... ball of spirit matter. It comes in handy so pick it up and collect any from now on. In the next area, pick up another spirit matter, and then watch the scene up ahead. The exorcist knows something's up. Take the only exit available. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Changing Targets Instruction: Hold R1 and use the left stick to select targets, do this twice to clear. In the next bit Velvet will stir up the other prisoners to escape from the island. Two names come up that are important Ban Aifread, the only prisoner to ever escape, and Melchior. Check all the halls and cells for spirit matter and shiny spots. You can talk to the goblin gouma in the back of one cell. Head back out the way you came for a scene with Magilou. Listen to her self-grand entrance. You can now access the other doors. Take the south one and pick up a SAGE. Enter the room to the east and search around for any goodies and a LIFE BOTTLE. Go back. Take the north door and access the stairs to the next area. Pick up WIND RING, and use the save. Keep going up for another scene and you'll run into another special guy. That you have to fight. Red-Eye Warrior Lvl 6 HP 2031 He'll run off when you tell him the information for Gouran (that sword in the storage area). Take the south path until you run into an Orc enemy. Collect two spirit matters and continue on the only path. After the next scene there will be another fight. Climb the ladder. Chest with 320 gald. Up again! Scene. Damn it, fine, so the rope was pointless after all. :( Pick up the spirit matter, and VERBENA. Use the save. Move forward to the next area. Run forward for another scene. Meet Oscar, resident pretty boy. He reminds me of Flynn. And Guy. Blondies. Right, moving on. BOSS: Oscar Lvl 6 HP: 8215 Resist: Fire Spear User Lvl 6 HP: 748 Weak: Fire Resist: Earth Staff User Lvl 6 HP: 781 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire Partway there will be a scene. One of the Malak undergoes daemonblight and turns into a dragon, knocking out Oscar. So not helpful. Seles will tell Velvet to eat her and gain her power. She also returns the comb. CUTSCENE SUMMARY --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Velvet says she will neither thank nor apologize to Seles, who wouldn't have it any other way because this is also what she wished for. She really likes those days of the past, where they and Arthur lived happily. Seles' memories flood into Velvet. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- BATTLE TUTORIAL: Break Soul Instructions: When you have 3 souls, use R2. BOSS: Dragon Baby Lvl 7 HP: 4240 Weak: Wind Resist: Fire Watch all the following scenes. In losing Seles you gain Rokurou and Magilou. You also get a trophy, The Beast Uncaged. You'll wake up banked somewhere cold. After fighting the gouma, the kid will have disappeared. With the compass. But you get a map. ~ Snow Fields, Figal ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o 320 Gald o Life Bottle o Gold Lump (Later) [HERBS] o Rosemary o Sage [KATZ BOX] o Cowboy Hat Turn around and pick up 320 gald from the chest. Use the save and move on. Hug the right wall and pick up 3 spirit matter. The eagles here will be a tutorial. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Escape Instruction: Run at the blue line (border of the battle area) until you escape. Note that Rokurou and Magilou are not part of the party yet, so they're just tagging along as guests for now. Along the west wall (edge/cliff) is a ROSEMARY. Head towards the exit and you'll get a long chat. Ignore the exit and turn around so you can go up the east side of the map. There's a LIFE BOTTLE in the chest. You cannot reach the other chest so head back down and come across the Katz. The Katz will tell you that the spirit matter you've been collecting is in essence, Katz souls. The Katz want you to collect their souls and use it to unlock the Katz boxes that have Katz locked inside, or something to that affect. Opening these boxes generates attachments of the sort. Spirit Matter will now officially be called Katspi (Katz Spirit, because the Japanese is NekoSupi). You get a COWBOY HAT to celebrate. Move on to the next area. Scene up ahead. The Malak kid will return the compass and then run off. Run after him naturally. When the path opens up, hug the left wall and climb the vines for SAGE. Follow the main path to a save point and go up the ladder. ~ Quiet Northern Capital Helvisa ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o 480 Gald o Life Bottle x3 o Fire Ring o Blood Blade o Amber Fragment o [HERBS] o Lavender o Verbena o Chamomille [KATZ BOX] o Square Framed Glasses You'll end up in a storage area. Magilou smells Coal Fragments, otherwise known as Melchorite, stuff used to make bombs and whatever. Pick up LIFE BOTTLE and 480 GALD. Exit and head to the southwest end. Pick up FIRE RING. In the southeast corner by some barrels is another Katspi. Two more of those on the ground near the kid with the ! bubble. At the shorter north dead end is another LIFE BOTTLE. Turn the camera around and there should be another Katspi by the crates. Head to the exit to entire the town. Turn right into the alley for two Katspi. Up ahead is the save. Up the steps of the church and turn left for another Katspi (where the kids are). Follow the fence around the north to find another Katspi. Follow the path behind the house to find another one. There's also a LAVENDER. Take the ladder up and follow the path for 4 Katspi and BLOOD BLADE and the end. Now head back all the way to the beginning and jump down. Back out of the alley and go around this house for a Katz box on the other side. There should be a scene in front of the house. You need 15 Katspi to open this box. You'll find a Katz and get SQUARE FRAMED GLASSES. Talk to the guy with the star on his head to continue. Meet Teresa. The ships aren't allowed to run until the Abbey captures Dyle. Velvet evens fakes a sneeze and plays polite. (Velvet actually can't get cold because she is part gouma). Follow along the north wall and beside a horse and cart you'll find VERBENA. Pass through the the arch and make an immediate left behind the houses for a chest with AMBER FRAGMENT. These are for strengthening weapons. Back on the main road, enter the first building on the right. Talk to the fanboy in the corner to learn about Teresa. Head upstairs and on the balcony is another Katspi. Across the road is the inn. Inside is the save and behind that a Katspi. Pick up Rokurou at the weapon store. Magilou will leave. Check out the cow at the end of the street if you want. Head back to where all the ! are. The first is talking about Dyle, gouma, and Teresa. The second one by the church is just a bunch of kids trying to be gangsters. The third one is a lady complaining about the cold. There's one more at the harbour. Head back out on to the field through the storage room. You can now explore the rest of the field and collect stuff. Namely the abundant Katspi on the west side. There's also a CHAMOMILLE up there. Slide down the ice to pick up all those Katspi. Let's ignore the gold star for now and go north. Hugging the east wall will lead you to a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. You can't take the northeast path because the vines are frozen so go north to the !. Check out the flowers for a flashback. There's nothing in the north so let's go to that yellow star now. Beyond that you'll meet another peculiar character, Eleanor Hume. A kid will come out and tell you the lizard gouma is in the north. In exchange for your silence, you also get some apples. ~ Village Built on Snow, Beazrei ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o 450 Gald o Twin Blessings [HERBS] o Saffron Go up the hill in the south to the first !, Rokurou will get blasted by stinky cow breathe haha. There's a Katspi in the empty fireplace beside the cow. In the chest is 450 Gald. Sweet. Go up the slope beside that for SAFFRON. In the gold chest is TWIN BLESSINGS, an accessory armour for Rokurou. There's 2 Katspi in the bushes next to the Katz Box. Spend another 15 Katspi to open the box. You'll find another Katz but get nothing out of it. Darn. Back on ground level, enter the inn and talk to the innkeeper for a long chat. You'll get to see shirtless!Rokurou. Training. You'll get his Jacket Off costume variation in return for spending 100 gald at the inn. Another Katspi by the fireplace. Another katspi and ROSEMARY outside the item shop. If you talk to the other ! guy, he'll mention that this is a village of outcasts whom the Abbey have chosen not to protect. Velvet also understands that the Abbey is not absolute or almighty. Head out the north exit, the old man there will stop you and teach you cooking. Yay! When possible, choose the second option to eat. Follow the prompts to make Velvet cook. Then choose the first option in the menu when prompted. At the end of it you'll get some ingredients and the recipe. Head out and use the save then enter the cave. ~ Hadrow Marsh Cave ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Apple Gel o 500 Gald o Shadow Knives o Life Bottle o 530 Gald o [KATZ BOX] o Rose Corsage [HERBS] o Chamomille o Sage o Lavender Collect three katspi dead north, ignore the dead end. Go northeast for a chest with APPLE GEL. Head back and take the south path. In the next room pick up a Katspi along the wall. In the west dead end is a chest with 500 GALD. Turn around and as you head north. Examine the boulder at the dead end and break it. Open and spend 25 Katspi to open the Katz box for another Katz and ROSE CORSAGE. Take the north path to the next area. Head forward and pick up 2 Katspi and continue north, jumping over rocks and collecting another katspi. In this next room there's 2 katspi against the east wall. Take the lower west exit, at the end of this room are some shiny spots 12 Katspi, and a chest with SHADOW KNIVES for Rokurou. Return to the last room and head to the east dead end. Collect 5 Katspi and a CHAMOMILLE. Head to the upper west exit, pushing the boulder into the sludge so that you can jump over. Pick up the katspi on the way and exit. In this next area there are some shiny spots, and a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. There's also a bat daemon here with a dark aura. If you feel up to it: BOSS: Bat Baron Lvl 10 HP: 9047 Resist: Normal He's not too hard, I just kept spamming Break Soul. Go down and around for another long chat. Go to the other room and pick up more katspi and a SAGE. Take the exit to the next area. Jump across and collect 2 Katspi. Further up, push the boulder in and jump across for 2 more Katspi. Another long chat takes place. Rokurou wonders about her sense of smell after earlier asking about her sense of taste. Advance to the last area with the save. Break the boulder to the south and collect shiny spots, 7 Katspi, and 530 GALD. Ignore the warp point and use the save. Advance to the upper exit. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Weakness Link Instruction: Set up your combos to the specific artes mentioned in the instructions. In the artes menu, choose one button under the first column and pick the first arte (fire). Move to the next column and choose the second arte (earth). In the same row third column choose the normal arte (Seppa). Execute this sequence to clear. BOSS: Dyle Lvl 9 HP: 9520 Weak: Fire, Earth Resist: Wind After the fight pick up the 3 Katspi, LAVENDER, and any shiny spots. Talk to Dyle. You'll have also received a Denole Bottle, it's for escaping dungeons. You could use it, or you can return to the last area and use the warp. It takes you back to the entrance, follow the south exit to leave. Return to Helvisa, to the main area with the crowd of sailors. You can talk to girl with the ! by the church to get some information on volcanoes. Talk to the guy with the star. In exchange for fixing their boat, Velvet will keep the guy's dirty secret safe and leave. Rokurou will teach you how to upgrade weapons at the shop. Now head back to your ship. You'll get two more long chats. Talk to the guy with the star in font of your ship and you'll find it unfixable. The next scene features Oscar and Teresa. They are siblings apparently. Poor Oscar with a bandaged eye. She's borderline brother complex. Head back to Helvisa, you'll receive a warning from the guys outside the city. Velvet wants to steal Teresa's ship using Dyle. So head back to the dungeon. Make sure of that warp! Talk to Dyle and she'll dish out her plan. Since Teresa is holding Magilou as hostage to lure Velvet into a trap, Velvet has a plan that'll secure them a ship. As for Magilou, she'll be on her own. When everyone takes a rest, Velvet will dream of Laphicet. When in control, return to the entrance with the warp. Save outside the dungeon and then head straight to Helvisa. Fight the guards at the gate. Head inside and straight into the main area. You'll fight a bunch of exorcists. I just spammed break soul, it's pretty easy to do. I also got a trophy at this point, Soul Vacuum. Watch the following scene, oh damn that kick. But they'll chase after you BOSS: Teresa Lvl 9 HP: 4760 Resist: Water No. 1 Lvl 9 HP: 1657 Resist: Normal No. 2 Lvl 9 HP: 1729 Take out the Malaks first, then Teresa. Watch the following scene. When in control, talk to everybody to continue. Just when you thought you could get some peace and quiet, you'll be attacked by Aifread's ship. The pirates make you fight the "Shinigami". Let me just spoil it for you, tis Eizen, Edna's brother (if you played Zestiria). BOSS: Pirate Malak Lvl 11 HP: 8034 Resist: Water ~ West Raban Grotto ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Earth Ring o Amber Leaf o Life Bottle o 640 Gald o Mercury Pouch When in control, pick up the 3 Katspi behind a rock. Talk to Benwick. One of them sells items. Talk to Magilou and Dyle, and then climb up the vines and get EARTH RING and a Katspi. Save. Head into the cave. Head forward to the dead end room. There's a shiny spot with SMALL ORE. Go around the room collecting all the Katspi and then head back and take the other path. At the gold star you'll meet up with Eizen. He explains that he is known as the Shinigami because of his rotten luck. No matter how many times he flips a coin, it doesn't land on the good luck side. Velvet says it's useless info and if he wanted luck, he just needs to turn it himself. Take the exit to the next area. Head to the dead end at the northwest side and pick up AMBER LEAF. Head east and examine the roots barring your way. You'll be able to burn them down. Take the east exit. Head to the southeast end to burn some roots and pick up a bunch of Katspi. Head north for a scene. Damn, Eizen reveals that the Abbey seals away the Malak's free will so that they can be used as tools. How horrible! Eizen's not sure if it can be undone, because this is the first time he's met a Malak removed from the Abbey. Ignore the west exit and take the east one. Burn the roots. In the southeast end of this room is a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Return to the last area and take the west exit this time. Spend 35 Katspi on the Katz Box in this area for a Katz. There is no attachment. Head north and burn the roots. Use the save up ahead and talk to the White Turtlez. They are neither Malak or Gouma, just simply Turtlez. They're basically merchants. Take the exit. There will be a long chat about the Turtlez. Rokurou thinks Velvet is scarier than Eizen in a sense. You can activate another chat about the name of Turtlez between the boys. Ignore the roots and take the east exit. There's a warp here and a chest with 640 GALD. Head back and burn the roots continuing north. At the north point there are more roots to burn. Behind that is a chest with MERCURY POUCH. Head out the exit. There will be a long chat there. Some terms come up, "Marta," "Daos," "Karlaan," "Ragnarok" pertaining to the original of the coin. ~ Brunark Plateau ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Life Bottle [HERBS] o Verbena That's some music right off the bat. Jump down when possible heading north. There will be a scene, there's a barrier at the door. You cannot approach the southern wall but you can fight some of the enemies here. The flowers are also now enemies too. Head north to continue. Pick up a VERBENA along the way. Jump all the way to the bottom for a scene. You'll fight two lizardmen. There's a save. Before heading inside, by the water there's a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. ~ Vordigan ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Life Bottle x2 o Earth Ring o 680 Gald o Plain Paper Leaf o Denole Bottle o [HERBS] o Verbena o Lavender [KATZ BOX] o Blush Head north to the next area. Go around the west corner for some Katspi. Go down the other path and up some ladders. Scene. Eizen says some cool things, which is ruined by his beach DLC that I have on him. But still. Damn, I can see why he's called Shinigami/Grim Reaper. Man that guy was weak. Use the save. You came in through the hatch on the floor, so ignore that and take the door above it. You can go up the plank and walk along the edge of the building to reach the other side. Head in through the door. There's a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Take the ladder up. There's a VERBENA at the other end. Go down the other hatch and go out the door. In the middle of this area is another door with a !. You need to enter this room but it's locked from the inside. You'll have to find another way in. Head up the vines beside the door and pick up some stuff. Jump down from the other side. Open the chest with EARTH RING. Go in through the window. Watch the scene and then head back to the room with the save. You can exit out the front door now instead of the window. So back in the room with the save, take the south door and at the end of the hall is a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Head back and go north this time. At the end behind some crates is a chest with 680 GALD. Take the hatch down. Walk across and jump over the gap of the planks. You will need to find a way to remove the boulders blocking your path. Head back up and take the door. Head up the plank and examine the boulder to push it off. Before heading back, walk along the edge and pick up a chest with PLAIN PAPER LEAF. Go back down the hatch and across the cleared path and through the door. Head out the other exit and pick up a DENOLE BOTTLE behind the crate. Head south and fight a battle. Exorcist Lvl 11 HP 6153 Summon Lvl 11 HP 3000 Weak: Normal Resist: Fire Beast Lvl 11 HP 2278 Weak: Water, Earth Resist: Fire Take out the summons first and then the exorcist. Watch the scenes and then head back to the room with the save. Might want to use it too. Check the door in red for a long chat. Head through the door after. Pick up a LAVENDER at the end of the walkway and go up the ladders and through the door. Move forward for a scene with a lever. Time to find the next one. Up the ladder we go. Go down the hatch on the other side. Lower the lever here. Watch the gate open. Go out the door and collect some Katspi. There's also a Katz Box here. For 35 you get a Katz and the BLUSH attachment. Back inside, head up the ladder for a scene. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Hi-ougi Instructions: Hold L2 while performing a combo, BG must be at least 3. Boss: Guardian Lvl 12 HP: 10576 Resist: Normal Oo, anime cutscene afterward. More scenes after. Laphicet finally gets his name. All's well that ends well. ~ Zexon Harbour ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Life Bottle o Denole Bottle o 720 Gald o Calcite Blade o Amber Fragment More scenes when you land. The merchant will give information to Eizen. Velvet will tell him not to bother with going to Titania because they came from there. Ban Aifread was taken out of there alive, by an old man named Melchior. Move forward for another quick chat. Eizen says the ship you were previously on has been used by the pirates for exploration. Benwick is in charge of that. Turn back around and talk to him. From the menu you can access the exploration menu. Send the ship out and wait for the timer to reach 0. You can get items from the explorations. Like ingredients, recipes, weapon upgrade items, attachments, etc. Access the save. On the other side of the stairs is a Katz holding balloons. You can play some mini-games by talking to him. If you score high enough you also win attachments/costumes (the Normin ones) for the character you choose to play with. You can also trade the TL Coins for the same items from the mini-game menu. Head north and talk to the guy with the !. He'll mention that the Abbey puts a lot of limitations on ships heading out to see. By doing so they can control a lot of things, like the flow of information etc. Head north and down one of the docks is a Katz Box, spend 75 and get a Katz and no attachment. East of that by some cats on crates is a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Head south and talk to another guy with the !, the merchant Eizen first spoke with. You'll get some more information. Head around the food stall and the other guy with the ! will talk about crabs. The food crabs. The chest behind him has a DENOLE BOTTLE. Head south into the last section. Up and around the stairs is a chest with 720 GALD. Head into the inn/tavern and speak to the guy by the bar. He'll tell you some gossip of the prison escape. Eizen shuts him up pretty quick. The item shop sells Calcite weapons, which are an upgrade from Amber weapon and armour. In the west end beside a building is a chest with CALCITE BLADE. Try to take the south exit and the soldiers will report something to each other. Exit out the south. ~ Danna Highway ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Calcite Vest o Earth Ring o 750 Gald [HERBS] o Chamomille o Rosemary o Saffron [KATZ BOX] o Silk Hat I kind of want to say this is like the yellow brick road from Oz. Look at that floor. Anyways. Move forward and along the east wall as you turn there will be a chest with CALCITE VEST. Take the lower east exit to the next area. In the south end pick up CHAMOMILLE by the tree. At the north end is another Katz box that can be opened by spending 95 katspi. You find a Katz and SILK HAT. Go back and take the south exit. Ignore the gold star for now. There's a long chat on the bridge. That gold star is the capital, Rogress. Go towards the middle of the map heading north and then taking a right to go under the bridge. There's katspi and a chest with EARTH RING. Head to the north east side and under a tree is some more katspi and a chest with 750 GALD. The lower east exit leads to a soldier camp and you cannot advance beyond that, but near the exit you'll find a ROSEMARY. Head to Rogress now. Watch the scene and Magilou will BS her way through the checkpoint. Velvet is not happy. ~ Imperial Capital of Glory, Rogress ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o 800 Gald o Calcite Garment o Holy Bottle o Inofle Bottle x2 o Simple Pendant o Life Bottle x2 [HERBS] o Verbena o Lavender Let's explore shall we? Head to the east end for a chest with 800 GALD. Talk to the old man ! to learn about the Abbey. Talk to the girl ! and learn about Prince Percival who is an ally of Artorius. Head south to the next area. There's a save here. Talk to the girl ! by the fountain, more talk about the prince and exorcists. Behind the item store is a chest with CALCITE GARMENT and a ladder. There is a Katz box up there on the roof requiring 95 Katspi. There's no attachment, just a Katz. Head back down and take the south exit to the castle gate. The people will shout and cheer. Watch the scene followed by an anime cutscene. If you've played Zestiria and know the terms, Artorius is called the Shepherd. When in control, go around to the south for a chest with HOLY BOTTLE. Go up the staircase that Velvet did in the cutscene. Pick up VERBENA under the tree. Head back to the last area and the ! girl by the fountain will fangirl over Artorius. Head to the inn and check the books by the door. They're history books. There will be another flashback long chat. Basically this person called King Claudine existed 300 years ago and was a beloved king. This name rings a bell in Velvet. In the flashback it is revealed that someone named Claudine taught Artorius, who is then taught Velvet. She doesn't believe it can be the same person because of the age of the history written. That would make Artorius a couple hundred years old. Anyways. Take the exit back to the beginning area and go to the !. More talk about Artorius. He literally just showed up out of nowhere with a Malak and kind of took over the place. There might have been someone in the background making all this possible. Although it's agreed among the people that if he hadn't showed up 3 years ago, Midgand would have fallen. Head south again back into the area with the main square. The tavern is open now. It's the purple icon on the map. Talk to the guy behind the bar and Mabo Curry will make its reappearance. She also asks about a guy named Baskerville. Damn the madam is very well informed. She gives you a list of jobs. If you finish them she'll hand over the info that you need. Accept the first quest. Watch the following scene. Man talk. About why they're following Velvet. When in control you'll gain the Mabo Curry recipe. Downstairs there is another mini game you can play now. The waiter minigame. So how it work is there are three stages, and I assume they must be cleared all in one go, all in one time without exiting the game. When someone has a :) bubble above them, it means they're ready to order. Take their order and then go to the bar. Select the food item from the menu and then take it to the customer. The order you put it on the list (upper left of menu) is the order that it will be served in. So if you talk to customer #1 and #2, but placed the order as customer 2's item before customer 1, then you must talk to customer 2 before you talking to customer 1 to deliver to food. You can reset the list by pressing SQUARE or TRIANGLE. You get a certain number of chances to mess up, and then if you mess up too much you fail. You'll start out with the easiest character Laphicet and work your way up to the hardest even on the first stage. This game can get pretty ridiculous. For your hard work and clearing all stages per character, you net a waiter outfit for each one. If you fail, you only get 10 TL, if you clear you get a couple hundred TL. Right now you can complete the ones for Laphicet, Velvet and Rokurou. Anyways exit for a long chat on your quest. For the one we selected, head to Zexon Harbour. Right outside the capital's gates a woman from the guild will tell you about some special gouma the Abbey is out to capture. If you kill it, she will reward you. You will also receive two Inofle Bottles to be used by pressing L2. They will take you back to a town. Job #1: In Zexon Harbour, head all the way north and into the storage room. Open the chest first for AMBER FRAGMENT and then examine the red boxes to set them on fire. As you run out you'll run into Eleanor. Eleanor Lvl 14 HP: 9250 Weak: Fire Resist: Earth Sword User Lvl 14 HP: 3447 Weak: Normal, Water Resist: Wind You'll also meet Bienfu, Magilou's traitor! Apparently, Velvet and her group just burned down boxes of the Abbey's medicine. Hm. Not that they knew what they were burning. But eh. Return to Rogress and report. Choose the next job. Job #3: Head back to Danna Highway and make your way to the gold star. More red boxes. Fight the gouma. Return and report. Job #2: accept this last job which takes you to some place we have no explored yet. From Danna Highway outside Rogress, take the middle north path that was previously blocked by exorcists. In this area as you move forward the party will spot a daemon on the other side of the field. This is the aforementioned high-class daemons the guild wants you to kill. They're like the gigantos of Berseria I guess. On this side of the area however, hug the east wall, go across the plank and in the shade of some boulders there's a SAFFRON. Can't go up stream so use the save and take the only exit left. ~ Gallis Lake Road ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Life Bottle o Calcite Boots o Holy Bottle o Denole Bottle [HERBS] o Saffron [KATZ BOX] o Angel's Halo Just because it's a new area I'm giving it its own heading. The annoying pixies from Zestiria are also back. Never liked those things. There's a lot of katspi to collect in the south. Head east and then jump up to the boulder. Burn the roots and then push it into the lake. You might even encounter a Wondering (Wandering) Enemy here. They appear after a battle, on the same field. The one I ran into is: Omantoohihi Lvl 21 HP: 17417 Weak: Fire Resist: Normal, Earth Head south and collect katspi, there's more up on the rock formation to the south. Take the south exit. Go south and burn the roots and knock down the boulder. Jump across and collect all those katspi. There's a chest with AQUA RING at the end. Head back and go up the other south platform for a Katz Box. Spend 75 and get a Katz plus ANGEL'S HALO. Head back to the last area. If you take the north exit here you'll find yourself on a map with a moving red target to the north. That's another on of those giganto, a medusa one at that. You don't have to encounter it, but if you jump around on the rocks and go up the west side of that area there's more katspi to collect. Behind the gigantic on the north end is a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. If you want to fight her: Ekidona Lvl 17 HP: 15718 Weak: Water Resist: Wind She's not too hard. She can cast fire magic, but pretty easy to interrupt when you've got the close rangers stomping on her non-stop. Defeating her also unlocks EVIL Mode. In the south area of the map there's a chest with CALCITE BOOTS. Take the south exit. Between the two areas here, you can jump up the rocks and pick up a SAFFRON. Take the south exit. Jump up the rocks here and get a chest with HOLY BOTTLE. Head back to the last area. The only thing in the upper north dead end is 3 Katspi because you cannot move to that lone island yet so head south to the gold star for a scene. You'll fight two mercenaries who can apparently summon half snake half woman spirits. Head around to the back for another chat with the guys hanging out. With this all jobs are finished. If you go all the way around you can collect a couple more Katspi. Jump up on the rocks and pick up a chest with DENOLE BOTTLE. You can manual backtrack or just use a bottle to get back to the entrance at Danna Highway. While we're at it, I'm just going to backtrack to that gigantic on the other side of this map. I mean the last one didn't seem too hard... ORC KONG Lvl: 18 HP: 18112 Weak: Wind Resist: Fire, Water My goodness the Wondering Enemies are harder than this guy. You actually needed to defeat this guy to satisfy Rokurou's curiosity, hence why it was marked with a !. Head back to Rogress and report at the tavern. The soldiers are also done their practice. If you go up the stairs beside the item stop you can now walk around the building and pick up a chest with SIMPLE PENDANT. Inside the tavern there will be a scene. The madam will tell you that Arteries has gone to a temple north of Danna Highway to pray for a new god, or something to that effect. He'll be holed up in there for a while. Plus there's a barrier around the area. In exchange for the "key" to get past the barrier, you will be given another job, "Midgand Church 'High Priest Gideon' Assassination." Velvet won't ask for the reason behind this job because she already knows, the high priest was behind the trafficking/making of the medicine that dragged in the Madam's guild comrades and such. The lady reveals herself as Tabatha Baskerville, the leader (?) of the guild. You're given a booklet, with it the members of the guild will help them out. When in control talk to the madam. Before heading upstairs to sleep, exit and talk to the girl standing by the door with the monster icon above her head. She'll pay you about 4725 something gald for defeating three daemons. That's the medusa, the orc king and that bat baron from way, way back. Go back inside and talk to the man at the counter to rest for the night. There will be another scene between Eizen and the madam about Aifread. He may have been captured and taken away by Melchior because Aifread has a certain relic. But the relic itself is a pirate's secret so he can't say much more. Velvet will have a nightmare, that she's just so hungry, she almost ate Laphicet (her brother), Arthur tells her to give in and eat him. She wakes up choking Laphicet (the Malak) and tells him off for being near her. Damn. Outside there's a guy by the fountain selling items and weapons. He also sells Denole Bottles. Take the east exit to go the church area (I presume). Go up the first tier of stairs and pick up a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Head back down and talk to the disguised soldier with the red scarf (gold star). Sewer time! ~ Capital's Underground Path ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Apple Gel o Life Bottle o Wind Ring o Calcite Fragment o 880 Gald o [HERBS] o Verbena o Lavender Cute scene. Magilou will tell Laphicet that there's giant gators in the water, and Eizen will tell her that the gators favourite snack is witches. Haha. Eizen's got this big bro feeling. :) There's a save behind you. Head south and take the right exit. At the end of this path is a VERBENA. Go back to the last area. Take the other south exit, breaking the boulder along the way. Go down the straight path. Keep an eye out for a chest with APPLE GEL. Take the next exit. Go around and take the upper left exit, breaking the boulder in the way. Pick up a LIFE BOTTLE. Pick up 3 katspi and then examine the hole to crawl through. On the other side is another one of those daemons. PILLBUG Lvl 18 HP: 15415 Weak: Wind Resist: Earth Crawl back out and head back to the last area. Head south and pull the level to lower the water. Continue south and get WIND RING. Head back and go west this time. There should be another long chat triggered part way. Head up the stairs to the west for a Katz Box. Spend 65 and get a Katz, no attachment. Head all the way south for some Katspi. Take the southwest exit. Head north and collect a LAVENDER. Head south and take the exit. In this room is a chest with CALCITE FRAGMENT. Head back to the last area and press the lever. The water will move somewhere. Head west and then go north for LIFE BOTTLE and another lever. Press it and the water up ahead will move. Go south and collect the Katspi and crawl through the opening. Take the ladder up. Follow the path, there is a chest with 880 GALD in the first open space. At the end is a warp and save. Take the ladder up. ~ Rogress Palace ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Panacea Bottle o Wing Ring [HERBS] o Rosemary o Saffron Another endearing scene, Velvet just stole a book for Laphicet. Or told him take it. Rokurou wonders why she just can't be honestly nice. Don't forget we're here to kill someone, bud. It's not worth anything but one of the books along the wall mention the names of some of the higher ups. Namely S-3: Artorius Collebrande, S-2: Melchior Mayvin, S-5: Shigure Rangetsu. This only really has some significance if you've played Zestiria. There is also a character in that game named Mayvin. Just saying. Moving on. Leave the room and Magilou will be useless. At the south is a soldier and some Katspi. Follow the path and enter the first room (not the library). Pick up the PANACEA BOTTLE. Go back and take the last door. This long chat, Magilou trolling Laphicet and getting what she deserves. Comedic relief A+ Enter the first door ahead for ROSEMARY. There's a save in the hallway. Ignore the door across for now. Move on and enter the door south of that for a chest with WIND RING. At the end of the hall is SAFFRON. Go back to the door across from the save. Inside head through the door on the other side. Go around the outside of the pews to find some Katspi and then talk to the gold star. Eleanor will appear to protect Gideon despite knowing what he's done. Eleanor Lvl 17 HP: 11528 Weak: Water Sword User Lvl 14 HP: 3447 Weak: Normal, Water Resist: Wind Exorcist Lvl 9 HP: 1907 Take out the weaker ones first and leave Eleanor for dessert. Afterwards there is a scene, Magilou will take Bienfu back into herself, making her strong again. At this point she also joins the party and you'll be brought back into the battle. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Switch Blast Instructions: When BG is 1 or more, use the UP direction or DOWN direction to sub-in another character not already in battle. Use the UP button twice to clear. Another scene will take place again where Velvet eats Eleanor's malaks and then knocks her out. Gideon then turns into a gouma and runs away. Pain in the butt. When in control head all the way to the bottom. Luckily you won't have to fight that chimera, but the barrier looks familiar doesn't it? Head back to Tabatha at the tavern. There will be a long chat featuring Bienfu returning to Magilou. She will claim that she's a sorceress and not an exorcist, despite being able to form contracts with Malaks. Exorcists being the only ones able to do so was a rule established by the Abbey itself. If anyone's played Zestiria, the way she contracts Bienfu is a lot like how Sorey did with his spirits, the whole true/real name thing at the end. The girl outside the tavern will give you 1950 Gald for the Pillbug. Head inside and talk to Tabatha. The key to get inside the temple requires an exorcist with 4 A rank Malaks. Aizen, Laphicet, and Bienfu make for 3, so they're missing one more. Tabatha wants you to keep the book/membership card. With that the guild will continue to support you. Velvet thinks it's crazy the guild wants to support a killer. When in control head outside for a long chat. Velvet believes the saviour to be a fake. If he was real, he'd at least be able to do something about daemonblight. If you want to check out the ! in town: o Dog in the castle area: Magilou can apparently talk to dogs. o Dog north of the item shop: The dogs are having a married couple's fight. o Woman north of the item shop, up the steps: gossip about the medicine. o Traveller by the church exit: Magilou's Troupe talk, the dove trick from earlier. o Dog on the lower east side in the north map: dog's contemplating life and companion ship between dogs and humans, and monkeys. o Guy by the horse and carriage: talk about Artorius. The prayer for the new saviour might affect business. The merchant's selling symbols of the saviour. o Guy on the west side: Lately without Nectar his body's been hurting and it's been harder to find. Eizen tells him to stop taking it because there's a dangerous ingredient in it. The guy thanks you for telling him as he won't be looking for it anymore. Head to Zexon Harbour. Head back to your ship and talk to the guy with the gold star. Head to the stairs and you'll hear Rokurou talking to Dyle. They aren't being very quiet about their secret conversation... Head towards the inn and Eizen will be giving instructions to Benwick. Go to Magilou for a long chat that starts with apples. The next gold star is Laphicet by the Katz box. Laphicet also likes to ocean and is excited by it. He is a lot of Velvet's brother, who also like the ocean. Next to the next gold star, Benwick will tell the informant was attacked by a Malak using a pendulum. Hm... Eizen will leave the party, go after him. Back on Danna Highway take the north path uphill and get LIFE BOTTLE. Head to the gold star for a scene. Eizen is facing off against, well, Zaveid from Zestiria. So this is how they met, hmmm. Oh god, I love this theme. Rouge Malak Lvl. 18 HP: 15462 Resist: Earth Eizen Lvl: 18 HP: 12132 Resist: Water I'm not entirely sure if Eizen will also go after Zaveid, so take him out first and then go after Eizen. He'll introduce himself as Zaveid of the Wind, just a yankee/troublemaker. The barrier will go down and he'll leave. Use the save and advance. Watch the following scene. Eleanor interrupts Artorius and asks to be granted more Malaks. She also asks about the big gouma at the bottom of the church. He then asks her why do birds fly, the same question he asked Velvet in the past. Given her answer, he deems her unfit to known. ~ Saviour's Throne ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Burning Charm x2 o Panacea Bottle o Cluster Ripper [HERBS] o Lavender Go to the glowing mark on the platform and examine it to remove the barrier. Some of the enemies here are weak to fire, so Magilou is pretty useful here with about 3 water-based magic/artes. Head to the northwest end and go up a ladder. There's a chest with BURNING CHARM. A useful item considering the damn snake Malaks can cause the burning effect on a character. Follow the path all the way to the end and turn off the symbol to lower one of 4 points in the biggest barrier. Examine the ladder near there and have it lowered, you can jump down from there. Head towards the north, opposite of the big building you'll find some Katspi along the eastern wall. Head towards the north east. You can search around the north end for Katspi but the ladder leading to the upper level is near the south section of pillars. Climb up and get some Katspi. Turn and take the shorter north path to get Katspi and a chest with another BURNING CHARM. Go to the grass area and in the south corner behind a big boulder is a chest with PANACEA BOTTLE. Continue on the path north to shut down the rest of the big barrier. Take the path beside it to pick up some Katspi and lower the ladder to drop down. Head back to the middle area. There's a save and some Katspi to collect at the back before going up the stairs. Pick up the LAVENDER by the stairs once you've ascended. Go up and around the second tier of stairs to get Katspi and a chest with CLUSTER RIPPER. At the top if a scene. This place looks -awfully- familiar, if you've played Zestiria. ;) Use the save at the end and advance through. Yep, really familiar. Head up for a scene. Here we go. BOSS: Artorius Lvl. 60 HP: 45480 Don't do a thing, not that you can. Artorius will use his hi-ougi on Velvet and it will cut to a scene. You'll obtain a trophy The Hero's Bane. You even get to meet Celica and see what she looks like. And a brief flash of Seles. Where the heck are we... Right, you're alone with Laphicet who is running a fever and useless. Move ahead and take the warp bubble to another area. Take the next warp bubble. Use the next warp bubble at the red marker. Basically keep moving forward and taking the next warps until you arrive at the red marked ones and take those too. You'll eventually arrive at a gold star. Eizen appears and explains that you're in the Leylines of the world. You arrived in this dimension because Kanonushi and Laphicet's power collided. You'll need to wake Laphicet up to get back to the real dimension. Eleanor will also appear. She forces Velvet to let her take Laphicet within herself with the exorcist's power. Otherwise he becomes a gouma. You'll return to where Magilou and Rokurou are. Time to find Eleanor. Velvet wants to add her to the group. So sinister looking. ~ Evorock Ruins ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Denole Bottle o Ancient Shikigami o Panacea Bottle o Budd Thorns x2 o 1050 Gald o Ancient Piercings o Life Bottle o Calcite Fragment [HERBS] o Saffron o Rosemary [KATZ BOX] o Bangs (Right Side Parting) Collect the katspi and open the chest for DENOLE BOTTLE. Open the door and use the save up ahead. In the south room is a chest with ANCIENT SHIKIGAMI, weapon for Magilou. The north room has a PANACEA BOTTLE. Take the east path. In the next area, break the wall at the end to keep going. In the next area move south until you get a long chat. Head to the ! for a white Turtlez. Ignore the wall behind the Turtlez and backtrack and take the south exit. Down here in the north corner is a SAFFRON. The exit at the end leads to a BUDD THORNS, an armour item for the men. Go back to the Turtlez and open the door behind. Take the south path. In the room by the exit to the next area is ROSEMARY. Head through the exit and get katspi and ANCIENT PIERCINGS for Magilou. Return to the room with the Turtlez. Take the north path and end up in an area with a Katz box. Spend 80 and get a Katz and BANGS (RIGHT SIDE PARTING). Take the north exit and you'll find another daemon. SPIDER ELIZABETH Lvl 20 HP: 20901 Weak: Fire, Wind Resist: Normal, Earth Behind her is a chest with 1050 GALD. Head back to the Katz Box area and break the wall to the south. Break the wall on the other end and in this room collect a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Take the exit. Follow the path to the next area. Go sout for a chest with CALCITE FRAGMENT. Break the north wall and collect BUDD THORNS. Go east using the save and exit. You'll have to take on Eleanor if you want her in your group. And you'll have to do it alone. Eleanor Lvl. 20 HP: 6671 Not too hard on your own. Scene after. You win the fight and Eleanor won't be able to kill herself. Laphicet knocks her out. Yay. Talk to all the ! then head out to the gold star. Go back inside and check on Eleanor for the option to rest. Eleanor will wake up thinking she's being monitored by gouma. And then be stupid and try to kill herself again. But she stops and runs off after a light. Artorius' voice comes forth and orders her to bring Laphicet to Rogress. Yeah like nobody would notice that. ~ Brigette Canyon ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Flore Boots o Choolate Bar-gami o 1100 Gald o Inofle Bottle [HERBS] o Chamomille o Verbena o Sage So you need to 1) find out where you are and 2) find Magilou's friend that can help translate the book Laphicet has. Head south and pick up FLORE BOOTS. You should have seen this chest during the earlier cutscene. Follow the path across two bridges. There will be a long chat where Laphicet finds a special ore that is not normally found in Midgand. Judging by that, Eizen says we're pretty far from the mainland. In this area follow the bend around to the northwest cliff for a CHAMOMILLE. Before crossing the next bridge, follow the wall around and pick up VERBENA. Across the bridge will be a scene. You'll encounter someone who is clearly afraid of you. Brigette Bandit Lvl 20 HP: 7763 Afterward you'll find out that you're on Islegand. Your objective is to head to the port and meet up with the ship. Apparently there's a pretty strong gouma in the area as well. Continue down the path and check the end for a SAGE before crossing the bridge. Once you do, had south for the red marker: HORUS Lvl 21 HP: 23708 Weak: Fire, Water Resist: Earth He comes with some harpies as well. He's got one annoying move that can kill characters caught in it. Behind him is a bunch of Katspi and a chest with CHOCOLATE BAR-GAMI, a weapon for Magilou. Head north and use the save. The bridge head down west leads to a warp and chest with 1100 GALD. North of the save down a slope is more Katspi. Head back and go east for a scene. You'll meet that gouma. CHOPPER Lvl 20 HP: 17902 Weak: Water Resist: Wind Another scene afterward. Rokurou knows of the sword, but Velvet has no business with it so hurry up and get to the port. Cross the bridge and go up the vines. There's a Katz Box to the west. Spend 70 and get a Katz, no attachment. Head all the way west for a chest with INOFLE BOTTLE. Head east and use the save. Enter the cave. There will be a long chat at the entrance after the sword you just encountered. Heaven's sword, Seiran, wielded by a person named Kurogane many hundred of years ago. The sword that defeated it is the sword passed down in Rokurou's family, Gouran. So chances are you might encounter it again. Head inside. ~ Vesta Tunnel ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Slow Charm o 1200 Gald o Panacea Bottle o Succubus Horn o Ancient Spear o Calcite Fragment [HERBS] o Saffron o Chamomille [KATZ BOX] o Earring (Left Ear) Head west and break the boulder at the end to continue. Crawl through the open space. In this room there's a chest with SLOW CHARM. Go back to the last area and head north. Before the exit there will be another long chat. In this area, follow the path and break the boulder. There's a save here. Examine the symbol. Examine the lantern looking thing to the side. Examine it after the note and the fire symbol on the wall will disappear. Move on and break the boulder in the north end, crawl through the hole. The chest has 1200 GALD. As the map denotes, crawling out the other end leads you to a daemon. OUROBOROS Lvl 25 HP: 24696 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire, Wind Collect the Katspi in the corner and head back to the main path and take the only exit left. In the next area, go around the bend to the other south dead end for some Katspi. The dead end south of the Turtlez has one Katspi. Buy stuff if you have to. Beyond the Turtlez is a scene, you'll meet the daemon again and Rokurou's brother, Shigure. (Is this the same VA has Wakka for FFX?) Oh my gosh this guy has a cat that talks. You'll have to fight Shigure as Rokurou, and alone at that. Boss: Shigure Lvl 22 HP: 7395 He's not too hard considering I've never used Rokurou in battle. Using his hi-ougi helps. Watch the ensuing scene. He'll make you fight the gouma before Rokurou can fight Shigure again. He also won't let you leave the island unless you defeat him too. Even the gouma, uh, Kurogane, talks. And isn't as evil as we thought. He walks off with Rokurou. Presumably to teach him stuff. When in control, take the west exit by crawling through the hole. At the other end take the southeast exit for a room with Katspi. Head back and veer southeast, there's a hole to crawl through. There's a chest with PANACEA BOTTLE. Crawl through the hole at the other end. Break the boulder to the south and go through the hole. Check the dead ends for Katspi. In the southeast dead end there's a chest with SUCCUBUS HORN. Go back to the last area and head west. Go through the hole at the southwest (there's 3 Katspi in front of it). Head straight to the gold star. There's a save along the way. Kurogane forges a short sword out of his head. What the heck. When in control, talk to all the gold star characters to continue. When in control, head back a couple areas to the gold star on the map. Fight some exorcists. After the scene, when you gain control, head all the way back to Kurogane's lair and pick up the chest with ANCIENT SPEAR. Head all the way to where the downed exorcists are and exit to the north. Take the north exit here (it was previously closed off). In this area head south and around the square round-about, there's a SAFFRON on the south side. Take the south exit. Here go down and turn left and break the boulder. There's a Katz Box. Spend 100 and get a Katz and EARRING (LEFT EAR) attachment. Why can't Earrings be for both ears? (sigh) If you head back near the entrance and go to the east dead end, there's one of those lamp things you can light. Head through the open door for another long chat. Check the north dead end here for a CHAMOMILLE. Take the south exit. Here head forward and follow the bend south. Break the boulder in the lower west to collect Katspi. Head to the dead end above it to collect some more. Go through the hole behind it. Get the CALCITE FRAGMENT. Crawl out through the other end and light the lamp. Head back to the main area. Go north through the open doorway. Another long chat. Go north and take the exit.

Rokurou's brother is weird. Eccentric, even. All he cares about is fighting strong opponents. Get stronger and then face him again, he says. He's nuts. Kurogane is randomly there. Your ship also shows up. He's even boarding the ship! The long chat you can watch after this is pretty funny. Eleanor talks to herself a lot. This time about Velvet's arm that bleeds into her cloak and among other things. She's also a bad liar. And it's sad because everyone else in the party notices too. Talk to the guy next to the save and get 6850 Gald for your daemon killing troubles (if you killed all the ones from the last collection till now. The bandit from earlier will be in front of the food stall. He wants to open a shop and sell sketchy bandit cooking i.e. a rice bowl with lots and lots of mountain shrooms. Yikes. The chest next to him holds LIFE BOTTLE. Go to the inn and sleep there for another long chat of Rokurou training, shirtless. You'll get nothing out of it though. Talk to the guy south of item shop. He's a blacksmith of 20 years. More sword talk. Near the save you can also talk to uh, let's call them Gamerz (following the theme of Turtlez and Katz yeah), to play some mini games. The storage room next to the food stalls has a chest with 1450 GALD. Beyond the save, the pirates at the ! will say they're pretty surprised you all appeared in Islegand, so far from Midgand. Talk to Benwick and select the second option on the list, Izult Harbour. Scene on the boat. Eizen will tell you to change course, some of the crew are sick with "Pirate's Disease". Magilou tries to scare them by saying it turns people into sand. Apparently it only affects people. Which means Magilou and Eleanor. Meh, no one's going to die here.

The ! at the southwest end will gossip about the Abbey and gouma, the situation in this area. Head east and into the village. The first ! to the north talks about the event that happened in the capital. Apparently the gouma was a three-eyed giant, oh how hearsay has warped what Velvet actually is. Haha. The guy by the save sphere dishes out rewards for daemon hunting. The next two are listed. Pixie and a plant. Cool. To the northwest of the second ! is a chest with PANACEA BOTTLE. The next ! is the villagers complaining about the high priest not doing his job properly. There's rumours that the priest is actually afraid of gouma. The exorcist tries to calm them. Word from the capital's events have spread all the way out here. South of that you'll find a SAGE. Next to the item shop is a Katz Box. Spend 125 and get a Katz and get LAPHICET - WATER NORMIN (HEAD) and (BODY) costume. South of that across the plank is a LAVENDER (the save sphere is within sight). Go around the houses to the east and around back is a chest with BUDD THORNS. You can play the Chara Fuda mini game with the kid here. Head south and there's another chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Talk to the guy at the gold star. Eizen will ask about the herb to cure Pirate's Disease. The area where it grows is off limits. That unlocks the exit here, but check out the ! before you go. The first one with be a father and son. The father asks if Eleanor wants to marry her son because his girlfriend ran away. Uh, no. Move on. The other ! will be a lady who talks about the gouma that you might be facing where you get the herb.

Anyways, the Orc up ahead generates a battle tutorial. BATTLE TUTORIAL: Commands/Orders Instructions: Press L1 while holding R3 (press down the right stick) to give a command. Head south and cross the bridge. Eleanor will ask Laphicet about the "Shinigami's Curse." Keep going south and get the PARALYZE CHARM. There's a ROSEMARY on the other side of the crescent. Follow the path for another long chat. Ignore the bridge (east) and go north. Before taking the north bridge, there is a VERBENA on the left side. Cross the two north bridges and the head west. Jump over to the other platform and pick up 1450 GALD. Head back and ignore the north exit, you cannot take it. Go east and ignore the bridge, picking up a LIFE BOTTLE in the chest. Turn around and take the bridge south. Follow the path until you're on the platform north of the one with the dungeon marker. There's a chest in the east end with GLOWING ROCK FRAGMENT. The first kanji is actually Hotaru (firefly), so I'll just go with 'glowing'. Cross the south bridge. Before heading to the exit, on the west side is a SAFFRON. To the south by the bridge connecting west there's rocks you can jump over to access the red marker daemon. TRICKSTER Lvl 27 HP: 30527 Weak: Fire Comes with two witches as backup.

If you want to go back and fight it: EVIL PLANT Lvl 28 HP: 30683 Weak: Wind Resist: Water There's a LAVENDER and a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Go back to the area in the south. Take the south exit here, you can go west to collect katspi, but do not jump down because you cannot climb back up. The south point has a PARALYZE CHARM. Head back and go east. There's a Katz box. Spend 115 and get a Katz, no attachment. Head south and encounter some exorcists. They're pretty weak. After, Laphicet's compass will randomly move. When it stops he says he feels a strange power up ahead, like that time you got sent to the Leylines. Up ahead isn't just a regular gouma it seems, if Velvet says the feeling is Kanonushi's power. In the next area head to the south dead end and pick up CASSANDRA, an armour for Velvet. Turn the blue switch to red. Head back and along the north wall is a VERBENA. Continue southeast. Near the save is a chest with FAINT SMELLING LIQUID. Make use of the save and exit. Check the purple flowers at the gold star to continue. This is the herb that you need. BOSS: Grossagito Lvl 24 HP: 23678 Weak: Fire, Water Resist: Normal Scene afterward. Velvet's slowly changing I think. Time to head back to the ship. The game is cruel and won't let you use a Denole Bottle, but if you head back to the save, there's now a warp. Which doesn't take you far at all but hey there's a chest with DENOLE BOTTLE if you missed it. There's pretty much a long chat before every exit on your way out. And exorcists in the very last map before exiting. Haul butt out of there and get through the wetlands and back to the village. There's a scene part way back and Zaveid appears. He even has Aifread's gun. Eizen will leave the party again. Once inside the village there's another chat. Exit to the harbour but before crossing the bridge, examine the frog on the rock. Head to Benwick at the dock. Benwick will tell you Melchior has set a large trap in the next destination. Velvet convinces them to take the medicine and get better before they head out to save Eizen. When in control, head back into the village. You'll get a long chat about Eleanor and the horrid taste of the medicine. Velvet forces Magilou to eat some of that herb. Haha. The woman next to the item shop will share some info on your next destination. Exit back into the Wetlands and head all the way north and there should be a long chat near the end. Before leaving, make a right for a Katz Box. Use 145 and get a Katz and DOG TAIL (SHIBA) attachment. Go back and make a bunch of left turns and gets some katspi.

Head towards the ! by moving along the edge for a chat about rainbows and geysers. Head to the north point. Behind a boulder is a chest with INOFLE BOTTLE. Take the exit and meet up with Eizen.

Ignore the gold star and go into the room in the west. Pick up SAFFRON and HALBERD. Go up the stairs again for a Katz Box. You need 140 to open this, and you'll get a Katz and EARRING (RIGHT EAR). At the very top of the stairs is a SIMPLE RIBBON. Go into the room with the gold star and find Aifread. Turns out to be an illusion. OOOOOHHHHH. That brief moment. If you played Zestiria first you'd understand. Oh man, what, Melchior can turn Malaks into Gouma! What the! Legend Wyvern x3 Lvl 28 HP: 16832 Weak: Earth Resist: Normal, Fire Scene after. When in control collect the CHAMOMILE in the south side. Exit out the way you came in. In the following scene, Zaveid revealed that he was being controlled by Kanonushi's power. When Aifread shot the gun at him, he came to his senses. Aifread left the gun to Zaveid. Now he'll find Aifread. But his time is limited because Melchior has gleaned the info he needed here without having to force it out of Aifread. Therefore, he no longer needs Aifread. I think with this Eizen and Zaveid have come to terms with their "score." The objective tells you to head back to Reneed Harbour and board the ship. Head out and backtrack, there will be a long chat on the bridge. You can use an Inofle Bottle at this point to head straight to the entrance of Reneed. ** For those that have played Zestiria, if you've noticed this place ends up being the Tower Town, Logrin I think. Neat. ** Talk to the kids at the !, they have a book written in a 2000 year old language. They want you to pass it on to a kid named Live who's into research and stuffs. They can't go near the kid themselves so they give you the book, go south to the other ! and Laphicet will give him the book. He tells you hide in his house when patrol comes around looking. He also becomes friends with Laphicet. He also gives a recipe for the Ultimate Elixir. Which is an actual item you obtain. Talk to the daemon hunt guy by the save sphere, for killing the last two daemons you get 6150 gald in total. Head towards the harbour. The pirate ! will mention that there's an island with a really dangerous daemon that's messing with the waters. There's a long chat following this. This unlocks a location, Fourth Jurisdiction: Unknown Class. The ! by the save point will talk about the incident at Warggs Forest, hence the increase in exorcists in the area. Apparently that dangerous gouma there has "escaped". Head to the gold star for a scene. When in control, talk to Benwick to travel. You can go straight to the next destination, or detour for that Ultimate Elixir. LAPHICET & ANCIENT SECRET MEDICINE o Head to Cadonics Harbour and enter Vesta Tunnel. o Go to Kurogane's sword collection liar place for the !. Check the rocks to the right of the chest. o Go back to Reneed and talk to Live. He's the ! in town, the bench by the inn. He translates two more ingredient names and gives them to you. If you care, Live also has a weak body and ill since birth, hence why his parents named him Live. Can't do much else yet, the next item "Unicorn Horn" is in Figal Snow Fields which cannot be accessed at the moment. Head to Izult Harbour. There will be a chat and scene on the ship. We learn that Eleanor isn't afraid of gouma but hates them because 10 years ago they destroyed her entire village, and her mother.

Head north to the next area and you'll go up a cliff side collecting more Katspi. There's also the first red herb, RED LAVENDER. Jump down and go east. Inside the church is a priest with a !. I think he says something along the lines of "sinner, pray and repent." Or something like that. Or confess. And Velvet confesses in monotone, hahaha. You can talk to him a second time for Magilou's confession. Troll. Rokurou's confession is hurting but not killing his opponents, so he will kill the next opponent for sure! He's reflecting on the wrong point and words it so that the priest should reflect too. There's a save across from the church. Take the steps down beside it and go around the back of the big building for some katspi. Take the steps down to the beach area. Go north, under one of the huts is a chest with LIFE BOTTLE. Talk to the guy near there with !. Southgand was renowned for its materials, the best in ship making. Midgand ended up using those materials to build ships to take over Southgand. Apparently there's also a place called Smilegand. Hm. Head south and follow the path east. There's a Katz box requiring 170 katspi to open. Just a Katz, no attachment. Follow the southern curve to end up back in the harbour area, but on the other side. At the end is a chest with ANFILLET FRAGMENT. Head back to the main road at the top most level and head northwest. Take the stairs down beside the tavern and pick up a POISON CHARM. Go to the tavern. The guy with ! will ask Velvet how she likes the south island. The daemon hunt girl is also here.

When in control, the item shop here sells Inofle Bottles, Peach Gels, and the Anfi line of weapons & armour. Head north down the stairs to the beach area. There's plenty of katspi scattered around on this level. There's also a Gamerz and Chara Fuda girl on this level. Along the east wall, north of the penguins in the shade is a RED SAGE.

Go around the back of the building with the knight stationed in front for a !. Information about an upcoming location. Take the west path down to a chest with INOFLE BOTTLE. Go south and under the walkways, up in the beams is a guy. Angle your camera to talk to the !. "What does it mean to become an adult?" He's troubled by the coming of age ritual. Velvet solves the matter in like 3 lines. Head back to the last map and go to the tavern area. A woman ! by the food stall will talk about Teresa and the people of Haria Village. Head down to the other ! and learn that Southgand's foods are becoming more popular around the world. They have a food called Banananuts. It's more sought out than most fruits apparently. Head back and talk to the gold star next to the item shop. This guy is selling dolls that look like Bienfu. It's the rain god, Amenochi. Apparently the Grimoire Lady is this Amenochi god based on the only sounds it makes.

Useful considering the octopus and nagga inflict this status. Go back to the main area and examine the penguin ! to the south. A talk about penguin eggs... and where eggs come from ;) Poor Eleanor. In the next area head down for the gold star, you will find the Malak and a lizard. Venom Lizard Lvl 29 HP: 42234 Weak: Earth Resist: Wind Watch the scene. Grimoire (which I think is her official name), was Magi's senior when she was training to be a witch. Rokurou has the gall to ask her what her age is, idiot. I think her reply is "keep asking and I'll stick some fireworks up your butt and light em." Laphicet gets her talking. When in control, head west, on one side of the slope you came down is a chest with 2050 GALD. Follow the south bend to the red marker for another daemon.

Open it for a Katz and Magilou's WATER NORMIN COSTUME. Go inside and rest for the night. When in control, west of the inn there's a ! woman. Talk about Amenochi and priestess that pray to her. Apparently Teresa came in pressuring the priestess with nice words. To hear the ! guy to the east of the inn, move around behind the save until it activates. He asks his friend if it's really okay to leave the Paramidis as it is. The other guy says they have no choice if they want to keep receiving protection from the Abbey. Now talk to the party members (gold stars). Another scene. Head back to the room in the inn for another scene. So some basic points gleamed from this scene: o Kanonushi is a god of Malaks, much like the big Four that created the world (Water, Fire, Earth, Wind) o Perhaps they fought against each other and Kanonushi was sealed away. o That 8-headed diagram, the top on is the main head, and the other 7 are heads that "devour" food bringing it to the main head. o Most likely, these "Kuuma" (gouma eaters) are connect to the main head through underground links. o To weaken Kanonushi, Velvet says they just need to destroy the other 7 heads first. o As for where these 7 heads are located, the group remembers the strong barriers set in place where they found certain gouma (the bug, the giant eagle/chimera. o Kuumas can take on different appearances. Laphicet will suddenly feel the same energy as from Warggs Forest. It's coming from Amenochi's Shrine, Paramidis. Outside, save, and head northeast for a scene. The girl is the innkeeper's daughter.

Check the room on the other side and get rid of the water. Outside the goblet in the center is missing the crystal at the bottom. Guess we'll have to find it. Head back and enter the west room. Take the crystal from the tablet. Take the blue warp. Katspi in one corner, LIFE BOTTLE in the other. Return to the last area and go east. Katspi and DARK BOTTLE. Head back down the main stairs and insert the crystal, get rid of the water to life the waterfall. Go through the new doorway and fight a gouma. Gouma Mahina Lvl 30 HP: 18923 Resist: Normal Take her down. She'll get away. Continue north into the next room. Save. Take the west path and enter the door. Go up the stairs and activate the goblet here to create a bridge. Activate the goblet again to get rid of the water but keep the bridge. Go across and collect RED LAVENDER. Enter the room at the end. The goblet here does not have a crystal. However, break the wall behind it for the crystal and a Katz Box. Spend 200 and get a Katz. Insert the crystal into the goblet. And activate it. And the south end, there's a lift you can ride down. Go the the east side and enter the room. Upstairs, activate the goblet. Head out the door and activate the crystal here. Return to the last area and enter the room that was blocked off before. Pick up everything here including GRUDDY-GAMI and the crystal on the tablet. Go back outside and take the lift up. The chest has 2400 GALD. Head back to the save and check the door to the north. It does not open. What you need to do is make sure the crystals under the goblets in the area are glowing, it doesn't matter if the waterfall is there or not. Check the areas east and west. Most likely you to reactivate the one in the west room, and as well as the one in the east room, but not the one in the east hall. Exit out past the save into the main area and activate the goblet in the center. Head south and enter the west room, take the warp. If all is well, make your way back to the room with the save. Go north through the door. Pick up RED CHAMOMILE and ANFI VEST. Continue. Tree/Person Gouma Lvl 31 HP: 40116 Weak: Fire Resist: Normal, Earth Defeat it. Turns out this Kuuma is Moana, Mahina the Priestess' daughter. She says the Abbey gave her power, made her stronger... by turning her into a Kuuma. Oscar appears and gets owned by Velvet, again. Return to Haria, there will be a scene once you enter. All the villagers are kind of listless. The impurity's gotten really strong. Eizen says the "impurity" coming out of them is turning them into gouma. There's no real time for talk, save it for once you get back to the ship! Enter Izult Harbour for a scene. Grimoire asks if Eizen is really going to do something taboo by telling them. It's not just daemonblight that they're talking about, it's a lot of things. As seirei/Malak they as a whole decided to take a step back and let the humans handle their problems. Velvet is no longer human and Eleanor does not want to go in without knowing nothing, deceiving herself. So Eizen spills the truth. Points of this scene: o There is no such disease as "daemonblight" o Any human can became a gouma/daemon if the "impurity" in their hearts overflow. o "Impurity" is the darkness in everyone's hearts. o Humans are moved by karma o It's possible for people to have immense impurity by hide it and move as normal humans with enough self-control/rationality o The Abbey created "daemonblight" to avoid mast hysteria among the public if they knew the truth. o To being with "Malaks" and "Gouma" have always existed, they just could not be seen by people without spiritual powers. o Humans, as a whole, had their spiritual powers amplified, but the reason is unknown o The seven heads (kuuma) of kanonushi eat the "impurity" that comes out of humans and delivers it to the main head, but because the party took Moana away from her sealed spot, the "impurity" is overflowing. o To Malaks, "impurity" is a poison. Velevet will still continue forward, removing kuumas from their spot and reducing the power flowing to Kanonushi. It's her only way to kill Artorius. Talk to the pirate by the save when in control, it unlocks a new area, Fourth Jurisdiction: Beast Class. Talk to Benwick, you will be informed Tabatha wants you go to go to Rogress. But before that... ~ Fourth Jurisdiction: Unknown Class ~ [ARE] There's a Katz Box on ground level in the northeast. Costs 115 to open. Just a Katz. Get up on the platform, the party members will note that this is an arena, there's a split in the center, there's murderous intent coming from that split, and Magilou inserts some horror story theory in there. If you check out the thing in the center, it will tell you that selecting to fight will bring out gouma, and once defeating one, the next will come. The battle ends when you've defeated them all or all party KO'd I guess. Clearing the first stage will net a reward. If you choose to fight, the first battle is hordes of enemies joining the field, in groups of 3-5, and they're all field enemies that you've faced while travelling to areas. They're levels range from 8-28. Not hard at all. The reward is a Invoke Extension - Ma Fu Shou (Evil Wind). Let's see what this does. So if you check out the second page in your artes menu but moving down with the L stick, it shows a new shortcut list using L1 + button. Cool. ~ Zexon Harbour/Rogress (Revisited) ~  Board the ship to Zexon Harbour, there will be a scene. More focus on Eleanor's mirror and Moana scares herself after seeing her reflection. Poor girl. Eleanor shows the girl her scar, which you don't get to see. But Laphi saw ;) The following long chat explains that Kanonushi chooses people and turns them into kuuma. So they should not be killed, because Kanonushi will choose the next vessel. As long as they do not kill the kuuma, another cannot be reborn/selected. You'll arrive in Zexon Harbour. The usual guy refuses to give information because not only are you a pirate group, you're also keeping wanted person. Eizen says to pay the guy more, poor Benwick. Thanks for your business~ Talk to the crew by the ship, they're cleaning the ship until it's spick and span. Just talk about this specific ship being stolen by Aifread and their loyalty to their captain and Eizen. The other ! mark at the northern dock is talk about the sea gate, and gossip bout how the gouma from Helvisa still hasn't been caught, and among the other deeds this gouma has done. The storage area/warehouse (is what I should have been calling it from the beginning...) is open if you want to pick up that chest that you might have missed last time. The ! in the inn talks about the ramifications of breaking the sea gate. Lots of people are trouble by this, having to detour and such. Oh well. The item shop is selling some of the newer items like Denole and Infole bottles. Not sure if that's just because the shop ranks have increased... The enemies on Danna Highway have changed. They're now level 29-33. The chests should have also respawned. Head to Rogress. Long chat once you enter. Let's check out all those !. First guy staring at the wall: he feels safe and secure knowing that the Abbey and Artorius are on top of things. He starts feeling more anxious and unsecure when Magilou tells him about what happened in Helvisa, Reneed and Izult. Gossip clearly does not travel fast with this one. Second ! by the west side: scene, the guy says they've seen an amazing act, Majilou! She's apparently an amazing dancer. Magilou meets Majilou. Eleanor says that Majilou's teacher from her troupe was someone name Barta, but because of an injury he could no longer perform. Majilou is performing living out the dream in his stead. It almost becomes Magilou vs Majilou, which opens a new sidequest: MAGILOU TROUPE CONQUERS o Talk to the guy with the ! at Zexon Harbour. The ensuing long chat is a flop of a "manzai" skit between Magilou and Velvet. The guy tells you not to come again. Third ! by the chest in the west side: When the woman hears "Majilou" she thinks of the word "Magiranika" an unseen shikigami that likes to move things around. Velvet has never heard about this. That's because it's from when this woman was but a little girl. So that questions how old Magilou is because she knows about it too... South to the next map. Fourth ! by the exit to the Church: gossip about the High Priest Gideon's death. And more gossip about the gorilla-looking gouma that killed him. Fifth ! by the item shop: talk about Artorius, how he's thinking about the public in general, not each individual. Talk to the monster hunt girl outside the tavern and collect 7700 gald for killing the last two daemons. Enter the tavern. The madam wants you to get this person out of the capital. It'll be hard, cause the destination is a place where the higher ups can't reach. Tabatha says that there's a rumour that the Abbey in the capital will be heading out (?) to the Prison Island Titania. Apparently the prison island, although controlled and maintained by the Abbey, has lost contact with the main headquarters. There's also a rumour that the Abbey has moved the (probably bird gouma from the church) gouma to a different location. Not too far, but not too close. Velvet wants information on that gouma in exchange for helping the cloaked figure escape. Outside, Eleanor remembers Artorius's command to bring Laphicet to the Abbey headquarters. She suggests they walk around the city. But says last minute that they'll do it another time. Laphicet smells something nice... in a long chat, apparently it's coming from the falcon. Head back to the ship at Zexon Harbour. Save before you head down the dock though because there's a scene. A spell will pass through the area and everyone will stand still. Velvet shakes Benwick. The guy will start talking and then he'll come to himself. Laphicet felt it. North of here a strange power surged forward like a wave. North would be Artorius's throne. Leaves a bad taste in Eizen's mouth. Before boarding the shop, head up to the ! and the son will tell his father he was acting strange, but then again so was the son. Everyone was acting strange, but they remembered that period of time when they lost control of what they said. Something's happening here. Head to the Prison Island Titania. On the ship, the hooded man reveals himself to be Percival Mid Asgard, the crown prince. Eleanor figured it out from his scent, a fragrance only the royal family uses. The prince says to himself that he can no longer return. ~ Prison Island Titania (Revisited) ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Waste Charm o Anfi Leaf o Arcana Bottle o Anfi Doll o Overweight Knives [HERBS] o Lavender Not a soul in sight. Hm. Head inside. An exoricst is killed by a gouma. In his dying breath, he says "headless knight gouma". Fight right off the bat. Bushy Ape Lvl 32 HP 9732 Resist: Earth Eizen thinks gouma ate each other and thus stronger gouma were made. They're going to find this headless knight gouma. Alrighty then. Start by taking the door under the stairs and heading outside. Collect all the katspi. This is the place where we landed after that tower jump. Head back inside to the first area and go upstairs and exit. Ignore the rest of the map in the next section and take the north exit on the other side. In this room go up the ladder and collect katspi and WASTE CHARM. Head back to the last room and go south. The ! is the white Turtlez. South of the Turtlez is a chest with ANFI LEAF. Backtrack to the main hall way and take the south exit (green icon). In this room go downstairs and head out the door so you're at the south port. Pick up LAVENDER. Back inside. The door under the stairs leads to a ARCANAA BOTTLE. Go back and head upstairs into the last area. Back on the map with the Turtlez, take the east exit for some katspi and shiny spots. This is the tower you jumped out of. Backtrack to the Turtlez and take the south hallway and exit. In this area head all the way south and go through each of these three doorways to check the cells for shiny spots and chests. There's ANFI DOLL through the west. When ready, head back and take the other north exit. There will be a long chat when you enter the corridor. In the next area take the north exit into another block of cells. The western hall has a Katz Box that takes 275 to open. Only a Katz inside. The north hall has a chest with OVERWEIGHT KNIVES. Return to the last area and take the east path. In the next area, head to the star for a fight. Antique Armour Lvl 34 HP: 22656 Weak: Water Resist: Fire After the fight, Eizen and Laphicet feel the leyline point. It's probably down below where Velvet's cell was. Eleanor will hear Moana's scream. Head back to the entrance. So apparently it wasn't "headless knight... gouma" it was "headless knight and UMA" which is Japanese for horse. Go figures. Dullahan Lvl 34 HP: 38515 Weak: Normal Resist: Earth, Wind When he runs out of HP he calls forth two Living Armour enemies. Damn. And hey, that kuuma from the church in Rogress is apparently, Griffin, the crown prince's one and only friend! So the royal family knew what Artorius was up to. They know it all. But the prince couldn't forgive the Abbey for stealing the sky from his friend. Next Moana will ask you to find Eleanor. When in control, talk to the party ! to find clues on Eleanor's location. Or just use the map. Rokurou's clearly been drinking. Laphicet and Grimoire are translating the book. Eizen's upstairs, gathering information on Aifread. Magilou has no time to care about others' whereabouts, but she looks pretty free to Velvet. You'll find her on the roof that you jumped off of in the beginning of the game. Go up there for a scene between Velvet and Eleanor. She's been doing some thinking. Before she was just believing what she was told. As an exorcist, "ignorance is bliss" is a cowardly way of living, she doesn't want that. She will remain up here for a little longer to think. More scenes. Eleanor will return and tell them that she was Artorius' spy because of the mission he had given her. She apologizes foremost, and she has no intention of obeying the Abbey anymore. She will join your cause in finding the kuuma until she finds the truth and her own way. Magilou welcomes to her to the villain's side. You'll get the trophy The Sower of Strife. If you been cooking constantly after every battle with Velvet, I believe at cooking level there's a skit/long chat to view about her cooking. She'll get a Jacket Off variation for her default costume. (I'm not really sure what the conditions are to unlock the skit, I assume it's the cooking level). Head out the north port and talk to the pirate in the !, another arena will unlock. Head to Velvet's cell to continue. Apparently Laphicet can feel leyline points. So he feels them out and can even find some based on their size. More scenes. Kurogane wants to forge a stronger sword from a rare metal called Oriharicon but no one has actually seen a place with it. Plus Moana is learning to speak funny. Head out the north port, the ! guy will tell you why the Abbey abandoned (?) the island. Head back inside to the ! by the Turtlez for a short chat between Dyle and Kurogane. One doesn't have a face, the other doesn't have a tail. If you want to rest for 100 gald, the room before the south port, through the door under the stairs is a guy with a !. Sleep for a long chat about maps and adventuring. Stay again for another long chat about Laphicet really enjoying reading. A third time about Laphicet and the beetle. Otherwise go talk to Benwick. There will be a long chat where Eizen praises the thing that is a fishing rod. ~ Banerdia Ship ~ [SHP] Does this mean we can board this thing as a location now? Talk to the gold stars, your party members. Rokurou wants to have a fishing competition with Eizen. Magilou likes fish. Likes eating them various ways. Laphicet and Eleanor are getting along great, learning about parts of her past. Talk to Benwick. Laphicet will fish out an attachment from the sea. Eleanor and Magilou will also find attachments. Laphicet will get mad at Velvet for mistaking him for her brother Laphi. But we'll be interrupted by Velvet's rod catching a big pot. With a octopus daemon inside. Then zombies... this pot is cursed! According to Eizen this pot is the legendary pot that was lost 200 years ago and it's apparently from the Claudine Era. Lol Eizen. The pot turns into a gouma. Pandora Pot Lvl 36 HP: 42606 Weak: Earth Resist: Normal, Fire Eizen doesn't want Velvet eating the pot. As if she would! Magilou reminds everyone that the attachments and pot were all because of the Shinigami's Curse. Laphicet's new pet name is Fi now. They even find Orihalcon in that damn pot, that rare metal. When in control, check out all the gold stars. The second time you talk to Laphicet, Rokurou will pick up a letter on the floor and start reading it. When in control head outside to the gold star and find Eizen talking to the Turtlez. He agrees to let the Turtlez wrap the package in sunflower wrapping paper, even calls it "cute". Apparently the letter belonged to Eizen. If you've played Zestiria, you know who the letter is going to ;) Lots of skits you can watch when in control. Most notable where Magilou asks Velvet to give her a pet name and some of them get pretty funny. Another one is where Rokurou gives Eizen a special coin where both sides are "good luck". Eizen flips the first one, to have it taken by crows. He flips the second one, only to have Griffon eat it. And the third one breaks after flipping. Poor Eizen. Talk to Grimoire at the end of the dock. She asks why an Earth Malak like Eizen would be out in sea considering how Earth Malaks drown in water. Talk to Benwick for a long chat. Talk to him again to head out. The objective is to find leyline connections in Midgand. Let's see what we can find... Head to Reneed, there's a group of people east of the sphere with a ! that say there's a gouma causing problems in Raban Grotto. Kids are being kidnapped, Casperleague of the aristocracy has gone missing, exorcists can't do much about it because their weapons are being ruined. This triggers a sidequest: Rokurou's Demon Sword. It requires going to an area we haven't been yet, so it's going under its own section. Head to Burnack Plateau, remember that dungeon entrance opposite of the exorcist tower? We're going there, East Raban Grotto. You can also find a Gamerz south of the entrances by the bridge to play a fishing mini-game. ~ East Raban Grotto ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Flore Leaf o 1750 Gald o Panacea Bottle o Life Bottle o Undying Diving Protection Charm [HERBS] o Chamomile [KATZ BOX] o Rabbit Ears (White) In this first area, if you take the first fork south and to the west dead end, there are thorns to burn. On the other side is katspi that cannot be reached without the geo/rareboard. So from the first fork, head straight to the upper east exit. In the corner of this room is a FLORE LEAF. Head back and take the south exit. The first south dead end leads to some katspi. Back up and burn the roots to continue. Take the second north dead end for katspi and 1750 GALD. Head south and burn more roots. Pick up a PANACEA BOTTLE. The next south dead end has a Katz Box for 135. You'll get a Katz and RABBIT EARS (WHITE). Take the exit. Jump down for katspi, a warp, CHAMOMILE, and LIFE BOTTLE. The next area has a chest with UNDYING DIVINE PROTECTION CHARM for Rokurou, and a DENOLE BOTTLE. When ready, face the ! marked daemon. SERKET Lvl 36 HP: 34052 Weak: Normal, Earth Resist: Water Long chat after. Rokurou has a bit of inferiority complex when it comes to his big brother's sword skills. This completes the sidequest. Head back to the ship and go to Zexon Harbour. Scene when you arrive. Tabatha has a message for you, east of Rogress is a gouma in Aldina Grasslands. A member from the neighbouring town of Stoneberry witnessed it. There's a chat to activiate, Bienfu seems to know a lot about Stoneberry because that's where his first love, a Normin, is from. But apparently the girl met another boy shortly after Bienfu betrayed Magilou. Awww. Talk to the old man outside the inn, they say it's possible to pass through Aldina Grasslands now, and they're happy the man's student in Stoneberry is safe now. His student has skill but is a little strange. He said he wanted to "Establish a new city!" and then went to Stoneberry. The gramps is a little upset that the kid's stepping out of his bounds. Haha, his wife says the student was a lot like her husband when he was young. She asks if you see him in Stoneberry, give him their regards. Talk to the guy inside the inn, he'll praise the kingdom and the Abbey for making things better, safer, etc. More praise for Artorius. Magilou starts stirring anxiety in people again. Just checked out the item shop. Not sure if it's the new rank of 5, but the shop now carries Tako (Octopus) and Okonmi Sauce (for Okonomiyaki). For the Takoyaki recipe. Exit out and go to the next destination. To go there, get to Danna Highway, on the map with the Rogress entrance. Instead of heading into Rogress, go to the east ??? exit. It was originally barred by exorcists the first time we came here. Just before the entrance there will be a long chat, Laphicet will get his JACKET OFF costume variation. ~ Aldina Grasslands ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Soul Bottle o Feld Boots o Feld Fragment o 3600 Gald o Feld Let o Arcana Bottle o Life Bottle o Low Grade Powder o All Divide [HERBS] o Red Verbena o Red Rosemary o Red Saffron o Red Sage Scene as you enter. That dragon is the gouma, and it's freely flying around. Laphicet senses a leyline point from that mountain. A lot of enemies here are weak against fire. At the southeast point behind a tree is a RED VERBENA. Head west and halfway up the map by some big boulders is a chest with SOUL BOTTLE. Take the east exit. Take the south path. Before climbing up the vines at the end, go around the rock and get RED ROSEMARY. On the next level, there's a save, go around for a FELD BOOTS. Take the vines up. Follow the wall around to the south ! for a scene about the leyline and scenery. Velvet will tell you about the white flowers. Follow the wall to the southeast point for FELD FRAGMENT. Go to the gold star for a long chat. There's no barrier and no gouma. Velvet tells you not to let your guard down, the dragon could have done it himself. The question is whether the dragon is a kuuma or not. Head to Stoneberry to find out. Head back down to the main map. Head north to where that U shape on the map is. North of that U curve behind a rock is a chest with 3600 GALD. Head north from here and then go east downhill, follow this bend around back west for a Katz Box. It needs 225 to open. Head to the south wall and follow it west, behind the mountain is a RED SAFFRON. Head all the way south following the west ball, at the dead end is a FELD LET for Eizen. Near the red marker, on the map with a crescent shape to denote a hill, there's a chest with ARCANA BOTTLE. The red marker is... PEACOCK KING Lvl 42 HP: 41697 Weak: Fire Resist: Earth, Wind The southeast dead end has LIFE BOTTLE. Take the south exit. Follow the wall around south and pick up LOW GRADE POWDER. Go north past the gold star. Opposite of the north exit back to the last area, there's a chest uphill to the west with ALL DIVIDE. Southwest of the north dungeon exit is a RED SAGE. Head to the gold star for a save and entrance into the next village. ~ Pioneer Village, Stoneberry ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Mellow Liquid o Low Grade Powder o Feld Fragment [HERBS] o Red Lavender o Red Verbena [KATZ BOX] o Eizen's Normin Costume Lots of ! to check out: Kids in the berry fields: they're collecting berries to feed to the birds. If the birds have a purple egg, the royalty will come in and by the eggs. Lady in the south field: so many berries around here being made into jams and gels. Lots of berries are grown here hence why it's called Stoneberry. There's a red potato called Radishbel found in a nearby place but apparently its poisonous. South of this lady by the barrels is a RED LAVENDER. Old man on the bench: talks about using certain water to feed the crops, making them more nutritious etc. Guy by the item shop: Not a lot of buyers for Stoneberry, but this place has potential to grow with lots of natural resources to sell all around. If they're in trouble, surely they'll be protected/saved. It's also nice and quiet here, he likes living here. But he does want something that is original to Stoneberry to give it recognition. Go around the tree behind the save for MELLOW LIQUID. The monster hunt guy is next to the save. Collect 5350 for defeating the peacock king. The Katz box here requires 200 to open. Get a Katz and EIZEN'S NORMIN COSTUME. Last guy north of the katz box: He saw it the last time he went to Rogress, a giant gouma that destroyed the Abbey's exorcists' swords with its nails and flung them away with its tail. Apparently someone else was there among them. Behind this guy is a RED VERBENA. Head to the upper east end behind the house for a chest with LOW GRADE POWDER. South by the pond is another chest with FELD FRAGMENT. The item shop sells Feld type weapons as well as some new amour like Force Ring if you don't have any yet. The Chara Fuda kid is behind the food stall. Head inside the inn and find Zaveid. He's drinking "Ibara's Forest" which is pretty hard to get. A member from the guild will approach you, the witness. She says the dragon only returns to the cliff when on rainy days. And it starts to rain. Leave the village and the Katz will gift you the Rareboard because he cannot ride it. To use the board, the party needs to invoke Bienfu's real name, which is Normin Brave. The party gets a laugh out of his real name, cause Bienfu isn't very brave. To use the Rareboard on a field, it needs memorize/download the map's information through a leyline connection of sorts, highlighted as a blue icon on the map. Head there for a page tutorial. To use the Rareboard, hold down R2 while moving. There's a warp on the west wall, opposite of the Stoneberry entrance. It takes you back to the western map, which puts you closer to the cliff entrance, kind of. Practice using the rareboard, there's a mini-game with this. Head back up that cliff for a scene. Stupid Eleanor. SHENLONG Lvl 62 HP: 90714 Weak: Normal, Fire Resist: Wind, Earth, Water Beat at it until a scene takes place. Zaveid will appear. Apparently Shenlong is NOT a dragon, according to Zaveid. He wants to protect it. Pain in the butt, seriously. Haha the dragon wacks Zaveid and flies away. So that non-dragon dragon is Zaveid's... special someone/friend that he was drinking for/to back in Stoneberry. In the following long chat, Eizen says dragons are basically Malaks overcome with malevolence. (If you played Zestiria... you would already know that.) Once they turn into dragons, they cannot become Malaks again, the only option is death like gouma. Velvet doesn't care what Eizen chooses to do about Zaveid and his friend, but she doesn't want to be involved in his problems. Return to Stoneberry and stay at the inn. Velvet will hog the room and bar Eleanor from going in. Magilou works everyone in to a storm, turns out Velvet was just cleaning the room. She just really likes to clean. Head back to the ship for now. If you use a Denole Bottle the closes you can get is Rogress. If you choose to stop by Rogress, Eleanor's turn at the waiter mini-game is available. There's also a new mini-game inside the tavern if you talk to the guy by the door. Oji-Men which is basically "Uncle's Face." The target face is the face you want to smack the other three heads into looking like. It's pretty hard. The White Turtlez is outside the harbour entrance, it has a letter for Eizen. No idea who it's from though. The Turtlez also has no luck looking for the Noru-sama Doll, said to grant great luck to the holder (?). It's not like Eizen truly believes in it, but he refers that it would give "that person" great relief if it actually worked. He reveals that person to be his little sister! Laphicet says he'll help Eizen look for that doll. Take the ship back to Titania. When in control, the rareboard data is in the northwest corner, down some stairs. There's a ! at the tower with a pirate and Kurogane. He has the wrong priorities when it comes to fixing things. Go up the only ladder and remember to collect those katspi. Go down to Velvet's cell for a gold star. Laphicet asks Eizen if there's a way for Malak to get stronger. Eizen says right now the Abbey are using Malaks as tools. But originally Malaks gained strength by having people "pray" to them. Laphicet finds a large leyline point near Helvisa! Return to the entrance for another long chat/gold star. Talk to the ! member at the port, he's stocked the ship with enough inventory to make people doubtful that there's anything suspicious going on. Talk to Benwick for a scene. This time it's Velvet's turn to comfort Moana. It reminds her of a time when Laphi would cry like Moana did when he was younger, despite appearing mature. Scene when you reach the next harbour. The exorcists are moving north past the city on a different mission. ~ Helavisa (Revisited) ~  Head forward to listen to the same people. Ever since the "calamity" lots of bad things have been happening. The "calamity" itself involves a gouma that's also been going around the world causing problems. They also mention someone named Medisa. The other ! to the south talks about the amount of gouma increasing. Head to the next area. The ! north of the church, the woman says a little girl turned into a gouma, she wonders what the cause of daemonblight is. Apparently an entire village is Eastgand has perished to daemonblight. Talk to the gold star south of the church: she's too busy to give Velvet information, but she'll talk to Eleanor. The lady wants Teresa to return. Although it was more restricted when she was here, now everything's gone awry. Talk to the next guy up on the steps to hear about Medisa. Her daughter, Diana under went daemonblight and the exorcists killed her. Medisa defied and objected the Abbey saying even as goumas they have feelings. Medisa almost got herself executed but was saved by some higher ups in the Abbey. Talk to the girl next to the inn, she tells you about the next area and a certain secret. Then talk to the gold star south of that. More talk about the girl that turned into a gouma, and the mother that tried to protect her. After all this, there will be a long chat. But in a situation that sounds similar to Moana's, chances are Medisa and the term "compatible person" floating around means that Medisa was probably dragged away to become the vessel for the kuuma. I think. Go into the inn and check out the bookshelf. Another flashback of the past involving Artorius and Seres. Go to the tavern, talk to the Teresa fanboy with the ! for another fanboy session. Press square and check out some sidequests. MAGILOU TROUPE CONQUERS o Talk to the bald guy at the tavern to perform a skit between Magilou and Laphicet. o The guy says Magilou's script sucks. LUCKY NOR-GOD DOLL o Head to Cadonics Harbour, examine the thing between the item shop and the chest for a long chat. You will obtain the doll. While here, head to the inn and the ! lady will talk about two occasions, "Rabbit Saturday" and "Rappig Saturday". LAPHICET & ANCIENT SECRET MEDICINE o In Helvisa, exit out to Figal through the warehouse. At the ! is the unicorn horn ingredient. o Go to Reneed and talk to Live. He tells you that the elixir is a cure to the "12 years old disease" where the illness kills you on your 12th birthday. The same as Velvet's little brother. Soon it will be Live's 12th birthday. o Go to Gallis Lakeroad to find the last ingredient. Enter from the Aldine Grassland entrance. In the first area is the rareboard data. Take the upper west exit to the !, it's a shiny spot behind a boulder. When ready, head out of Helvisa and take the north exit to the next dungeon.

In the north area, one room has a Katz Box that can be opened with 320. Just a Katz. The room next to it has a chest with ARCANA BOTTLE. In the next area, ignore the north exit as you cannot proceed. Take the east exit, lighting torches on both ends to open the doorway. In the next area take the north exit. The rareboard data is here. And two chests with RUNNER'S HIGH and MELLOW LIQUID. Go back and head south. There's a chest with HOLY BOTTLE at the first turn. Follow the path. At the bottom of the map, head north east towards the red exit marker, but not from straight south because there are bars on either side of the exit, requiring you to light the torches behind them. Light the torch on the east side and then head south and go all the way to the west end. Light the torch before going up the stairs for ALL DIVIDE and katspi. Head back to the west side of the exit for another torch, which opens the door behind it for another torch. Take the exit to the next area for scene. Take out the enemies. There's a torch on both sides north of where you start. It unlocks the door further north. South of the door is a chest with FORCE RING. Take the path down. In the room at the bottom, both torches are in the south on opposite ends. There's a save. Through the doorway is a chest with LIFE BOTTLE and a RED VERBENA. In the next area, light the four torches in the room. Head forward to the gold star for a scene. Velvet will break the barrier. Medisa will send snakes to attack you (she should be named Medusa, dang it). Defeat the sneaks for a scene. Apparently she wasn't forcefully turned into a kuuma, she willingly did it. Damn she's got a ridiculous rack. I swear if this is Medusa from Zestiria... She'll come at you again with three rock golems this time. Kuuma Medisa Lvl 39 Hp: 53550 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire She's got the same damn petrifying stare move too. After you take her down, she will call Velvet the "Lord of Calamity." HMMMMMM. Laphicet and Eleanor will bring up Moana's case to reason with Medisa. She'll faint afterwards. Eizen will use a arte/spell on her just to be safe while they extract her from this place. When in control, take the east path and exit out. Light the torches and go south. Take the immediate exit to go back up a level. Light the torches at the west end and go through the door. Take the north door. In this area head east, midway in the north room is a RED LAVENDER. The southeast room has a SATURN FIELD. The northeast room has 3800 GALD and another normin doll for the LUCKY NOR-GOD DOLL sidequest. In the following long chat, Eizen will receive another letter from his sister. Apparently she's pretty angry in that letter. It's derived that his sister loves him dearly. He doesn't think she would write such a letter. Magilou suggests maybe the letter was meant for a boy from his sister. This angers Eizen. Return to Helvisa. Inside will be a scene. You'll be taken straight to Titania. Medisa meets Moana. Eleanor basically wants Medisa to mother Moana. According to Moana, Velvet and Dyle are scarier than Medisa. What the heck. When in control head to the roof of the north tower and talk to Grimoire. Partway there will be a long chat about the party members' mothers. Rokurou's mom passed away a while ago, Magilou doesn't have parents, she says she was born from a peach (like Momotarou). Eizen as a Malak was born from a concentration of spiritual matter. In another long chat, Eizen explains that he was born from a certain leyline point on a certain spiritual mountain. Before he knew it, his sister was also born from the same leyline point. They ended up living together. Although they are no way related, they felt a special connection to each other. So he promised himself to protect her. They each made the exact same pendant for the other, and that's when he felt that sibling relationship. Head up and talk to Grimoire. There's more of the book to translate. In the second verse, Kanonushi revives and destroys humanity. Apparently this is as far as Grimoire can translate because it's not the original book. When in control head outside and Moana will be joyous that she's spending time with Medisa. She wants Laphicet to join in her bath with Medisa, which troubles him. Eleanor saves him by saying Dyle grew another tail. Laphicet will find another leyline point in the east of Eastgand. When in control talk to the first ! to open a new arena. Talk to Dyle at the second ! and he says he'll take care of this hideout. Velvet says it's just because if he rides on the boat with the party, he's likely to meet an unfortunate end. That wraps things up here for now. There are some things that can be done before heading to the next destination: Church in Helvisa: the priest will ask you to confess your sins. Eizen will give him the death glare and confess that a long time ago the White Turtlez had a really beautiful painting which he ended up buying it for a high price but it turned out to be a replica. He also repents for secretly taking 100 gald from his sister. Laphicet will be next but the priest doesn't think he's old enough to have something to confess. But he does, he repents for sprinkling salt on a slug cause he read that they shrink when you do so. But it turns out instead of salt, he accidentally sprinkled sugar on it and then ants attacked it. He also poured syrup down an ant hill and repents for that too. Inn in Cadonics Harbour: pirates will say gouma attacked Vordigan, you will hear more about the Casperleague aristocrat, who apparently turned into the gouma. Apparently this guy's family and the Rangetsu family are connected somehow. This activates the next part of Rokurou's sidequest. ROKUROU'S DEMON SWORD o Head to Vordigan (unless you can warp to a dungeon, you'll have to manually track there from Reneed) o Head up to the rooftop that you jumped off of the first time you were here (to get there, head inside the dungeon and take the door beside the save and make your way up) o On the roof you'll fight: LANCELOT Lvl: 61 HP: 54942 Weak: Water Resist: Normal, Fire, Earth When ready, talk to Benwick and (any) harbour and go to a new location. ~ Tarieshin Harbour ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Mellow Liquid o Arcana Bottle o 4350 Gald o Life Bottle [HERBS] o Red Sage o Red Saffron o Red Rosemary [KATZ BOX] o Soothing Cat Velvet will dream about an apple, Seres.

When in control, head to the first north end where that noisy cat is, and down the steps is a RED SAGE. Go around and uphill, taking the exit to the next area. Velvet says this place was originally built as a fortress. She seems to know a lot about this place, it is after all her home. When in control head south/up the stairs and turn the corner for a Katz Box. Use 230 to open it for a Katz and SOOTHING CAT. Head up to the main square. At the ! by the food stall, the guy is thankful for the sun coming out. He says that Eastgand has the least amount of gouma/daemonblight because Artorius saved them. Even if there is, they don't enter town. The item shop here carries the Quartz series of items and some new kinds of rings. The girl ! by the fruit stand will ask about other towns and their state regarding daemonblight. Go up the steps next to her and beside the building is a chest with MELLOW LIQUID. Talk to the guy ! on the other side, he'll ask how you're enjoying the town. He says the exorcists have gone to Northgand to deal with the gouma there. Go down and up the stairs between the save and inn, the woman says someone named Nico is supposed to come and sell stuff. But she's holed up in her village waiting for her lost friend to come back. Apparently everyone in that village is still alive and well. It's gotta be a lie!!! Take the stairs to the left but keep an eye on the wall there's a crevice with a ladder to climb. Keep climbing up until you see the Chara Fuda kid on the roof. Jump down the other end for a chest with ARCANA BOTTLE. Head back to the main area. Continue up the steps until you see kids in school uniforms with a !. They're talking about the latest festival at Abal. And Nico's quiche. Behind them is a RED SAFFRON.

He says that if there's anything this city is famous for, it's the stairs! Everyone in this place has really strong legs/feet. Head back to the save. Taking the stairs down beside it leads to the tavern. Inside is the monster hunt guy by the fireplace. Get 15000 gald for defeating Lancelot. Now that you have the rareboard data, head back up the first ladder that would take you to the Chara Fuda kid. Instead after the first ladder you'll see a blue glow on either side of the ground. Use the rareboard to fly to the other side. Take the ladder down and get LIFE BOTTLE.

Slide down the stream at the other end, pick up the katspi and rareboard data and then take the next slide back to the main level. South of the vines behind the big tree is RED SAGE.

Head back and move past all the gathered villagers for a chest with OLD SPEAR. Head south for a long chat. Eizen gut punches Rokurou thinking this is an illusion, but it fails. Poor guy. The men will leave the party to look for the kuuma. Take the exit to Velvet's house. Scene ahead. Her house hasn't changed at all. Laphicet tries to warn her to be careful. If this is really Melchior's trap, she cuts herself but it doesn't do anything for her. She won't be fooled. She'll see Laphicet her brother and cry. He's warm but has been sleeping since that day.

So well that daemonblight has not affected the village. The herb near the northeast exit has regrown, collect another RED SAGE. The ! guy here will be really excited to see Velvet again. Head forward and talk to the ! granny. She hasn't changed a bit. This time she claims Velvet is already 16 years old (she's actually 19). Talk to the merchant at the gold star to acquire ingredients. For free!! He has no uriboar meat, so he tells you to look in Morgana Forest for some. Apparently Eleanor doesn't like spinach. Hm. Head out to Morgana's Forest and backtrack to the gold star. Attack the boar for its meat. Keep finding more gold stars in the forest for boar meat. After a long chat, head back to Abal and Velvet's house. The guys will discover that the other woods are being restricted by the Abbey, there's a high chance this is a trap. Eizen and Rokurou will go ahead giving her time to think and decide tonight on her future actions. Nico will scream at seeing her arm. She's afraid but Velvet's not scary. She won't say anything and wants Velvet to live like they all did in the past. Hmm. Laphicet will find the original copy to the book about Kanonushi. Velvet will interrupt and ask to borrow his compass really quickly. velvet will pick some pudding off Laphicet's face and be able to taste it as too sweet. Which shouldn't be possible because she has no sense of taste, which shocks her. Velvet demands Magilou to tell her if there's a spell to trap someone in a dream. There is. Velvet, angry, will head to the woods. When in control, head to the main area of the village. The villagers are not letting the guys advance. They'll turn into gouma, so fight them. ~ Quelling Woods (Revisited) ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Apple Gel [HERBS] o Red Verbena o Red Rosemary o Red Saffron [KATZ BOX] o Velvet's Fire Normin Costume We've been here before.

She wanted to learn to knit in exchange for teaching Nico how to make the quiche, but that was in the past and she no need to learn it anymore. Check out the ! by the bookshelf at the end of Laphicet's bed. Laphicet wanted to travel the world. Exit for a scene at her family's grave. Melchior will appear. He has the book you need. A gouma will step in the way of the party attacking Melchior. Head to the village square for a scene. Laphicet will find an open book. Velvet will remember how the book landed there. For now head back to the harbour. Gotta do it by foot since there are long chats along the way. You can try using the bottles to get to the Morgana's Forest exit in Pranaha Lakeside Bluffs. Which is as close as you can get. Most of the chats are about the gouma Melchior was controlling. Head to Tarieshin Harbour. Inside, let's check out all the ! points. Kids in uniform: The kid's sister is going to make uriboar meatballs. It's not as delicious as before though since that day 3 years ago. At least the spell broke on this place too. Guy by the church: There's an annual celebration of the day Artorius saved the city. He says if Artorius had saved Abal instead of Tarieshin on that day, it would have been this city that would have been wiped out. Guy by the seafood stall: There's never been fog in this city. That fog was the beginning of Melchior's illusion. MAGILOU TROUPE CONQUERS: o Talk to the old guy by the ledge for a skit between Magilou and Eleanor. Apparently this gramps is friends with Barta. o Reward: Magilou's JACKET OFF and HAT OFF variation costumes.

Just realized he was here. Talk to the ! pirate in the harbour to open another arena area. Talk to Benwick. Go back to Titania. Scene on the ship. Velvet will collapse. Abbey centric scene. Artorius will cast a spell on Oscar to have him test it out. An experiment of sorts. Teresa will have her spirit No. 1 taken from her and assigned to Melchior. Teresa will return to being an exorcists when Oscar succeeds his mission and returns. Dang. Left behind, Kanonushi will cast another (or the same) spell on Teresa. Ohh. Back in Titania, the first ! in this port, the guy says the Abbey has been very quiet lately. Inside is a long chat, Laphicet will sense out another leyline point in the northeast in Endgand. In a skit, Velvet confuses Seres for her sister Celica. Let's check out these !: Head outside and talk to Medisa: she wants Moana to listen to her. They're fighting over the fact that Medisa told Moana to dry her hair right after leaving the bath. Eleanor ends up spoiling Moana. Crew member in the hallway: he finds the prince kind of interesting, as the prince likes to really care for the animals and even Moana. The prince is super happy to be able to do things of his own free will. Doing these things makes him feel alive. It almost made this crew member cry. Moana south of here: Laphicet and Moana wonder if Dyle sheds his skin, since he is a lizard. Crew member in the other port: he asks Eizen about the 4 mysteries of the sea. Talk about the Queen Squid, the size of a human, when it sees a person, it latches on and sucks. To the point where you're not sure if it hurts or doesn't, almost like an actual queen - and that's where the conversation stops cause it's too adult for Laphicet. Dyle down the steps in the same area: He's hiding from Moana. She's been surprising him making his new tails drop. Kurogane in the hallway that leads to a tower: Kurogane is sighing heavily, Dyle comes in looking for Moana because they're playing hide and seek. When he leaves, Moana comes out from inside Kurogane's armour. She praises him, and Kurogane even blushes, haha. We're done here, head to the next location by talking to Benwick. ~ Lionel Island Wharf ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Grape Gel o Arcana Bottle [KATZ BOX] o Angel Wings On the ship, Benwick will find an Abbey ship sending an SOS signal.

Rokurou notes that it's very little exorcists for an Abbey ship. Teresa's also on this ship. She tells them that in their destination, there's a kuuma named Deel, and Oscar is guarding it. About the spell cast on Oscar. She wants you to save him. In exchange for being able to save her brother, she'll let you take the kuuma and run away with it.

Oscar will comfort Teresa, thanking her for everything she's done for him. He'll perform the spell on himself as well but with a spirit. This looks kind of familiar. Kind of like the Armatization from Zestiria. Completed Kamui Oscar Lvl 45 HP: 51302 Resist: Earth More scenes, Oscar will go berserk and Velvet will stop him, accidentally killing him. Teresa will try to kill Velvet, but she'll use her arm and kill Teresa as well. Velvet eats the impurities from them.

Head back to Lionel Island Wharf towards the ship for a scene. Benwick will get a message. Abbey ships are headed to Titania to destroy to the Lord of Calamity. But this didn't come from the guild, it came from a regular merchant. It could be a trap. This time the exorcists might be using kamui like Oscar. Talk to the monster hunt knight and pick up 7800 gald. The item shop has moved to where Benwick is. Stock up if necessary and head to Titania. On the ship there will be a scene on the ship. Magilou finds out what the traitor is actually Bienfu. Melchior attached an additional contract on to her contract spell. Welp, it's always nice when they throw Kamui at you. By the way apparently in its currently early stages, the process could, if gone wrong, make people self-destruct. Aren't you glad they fixed that for Zestiria? Anyways. Earth-Kamui Exorcist Lvl 46 HP: 14854 Weak: Wind Resist: Water Water-Kamui Exorcist Lvl 46 HP: 9400 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire These guys are nothing compared to Oscar.

Artorius is also on the island according to him. Head back to the south port. The ships are coming this way, Eizen says they're pulling out. Take care of the exorcists. Head back to the north port and use the prince as a hostage chip to snag a ship. Scenes ahead. Kanonushi already exists, and apparently, it is also Velvet's little brother, Laphicet. Lovely. Just lovely. Kanonushi Lvl 65 HP: 67567 Weak: Fire Resist: Normal, Wind None of your hits will mean anything. Hold tight until a scene takes place. So now Artorius' real goal is to erase human's free wills just like he did to Malaks. Kanonushi "eats them" to heal his wounds. He says her efforts meant nothing and only hurt others. Laphicet saves the day. Kind of. Kanonushi will go after them. Shigure's going to wait to Artorius and Kano- nushi's kamui. Dang. More scenes.

Arthur is super happy about this. Exit out. In this area follow the path west until there's a fork going south. At the end of this path is a chest with 5 PEACH GELs. Continue west for a long chat. Another memory ball to the north. You will see how Celica died 10 years ago. Melchior appears behind him. From the beam of light Seres and Laphicet are born. Arthur apologizes for being unable to protect his family and says he will throw the current self away. He forms a contract with them. So basically the human souls of Celica and her unborn baby were reincarnated as Malaks. Celica's soul into Seres and her unborn baby's soul into Laphicet. If the memory is real. Velvet was aware that Seres was truly Celica. Ignore the warp and continue to the red dungeon marker. Use the save and go through this warp. In the next area, to the immediate north is a chest with 3 SOUL BOTTLEs. Head to the gold star for a scene. Another memory ball between Laphicet and Artorius. Laphicet asks is sacrificing a soul to Kanonushi will make him resurrect. In the book, it says if Kanonushi resurrects all the gouma will disappear. That is the true purpose of the Crimson Night. Laphicet asks if it's possible for him to go to heaven, to be sacrificed in the upcoming Crimson Night. The next Crimson Night after the upcoming one, is in 3 years and he won't be alive then because of his disease. He's not afraid of the disease or dying, but he doesn't want to die knowing nothing. He wants to keep this a secret from Velvet. He's going to make it, a world where she can be happy. The same words he spoke in the prologue. Velvet will freak out, and an ugly chimera will attack the party. CHIMERA LVL 48 HP: 73846 Weak: Fire Resist: Normal, Earth Kanonushi will appear and make Velvet completely breakdown. Forcing her to have "hatred" and "despair" the final impurities he needed to be complete. Laphicet's pretty strong for a little boy. The "despair" will disappear. Seres will appear. Velvet finally understands her feelings. But she can only fight from here on for herself. You will get the trophy The Unquenchable Flame. Back to Melchior and Magilou. He keeps breaking her down and calls her a failure. The party will burst through the gate. Velvet's back to normal! Melchior Lvl 49 HP: 63474 Weak: Wind Resist: Normal No.1 Lvl 49 HP: 17195 Weak: Normal Take them out. Scene after. Velvet tells him to pass on a message to Artorius and Kanonushi. They stole what was precious to her, and she'll make them pay. He'll summon the gouma, that looks a lot like Aifread, and Zaveid will come in saving the day. Zaveid will also bring No. 1. with them. He can't leave the kid alone. He'll figure out something for the vessel. ~ The Charis ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Peach Gel x5 o Life Bottle x5 o Elixir o Arcana Bottle o Grape Gel x5 o Soul Bottle New area, save. Head down the long set of steps. Pick up 5 PEACH GELs, and 5 LIFE BOTTLEs. Continue, at the fork go south for ELIXIR. Head back and go north and then at the next fork go southwest. Pick up ARCANA BOTTLE and head back continuing north. Most of the long chats along the way about No. 1. Naming him and stuff. Both Velvet and Eleanor have bad naming sense. Eizen names him Silver after his hair colour and other features. Take the warp at the end. Follow the path north and find a dragon, trapped like a gouma. Velvet informs Zaveid of the situation in the long chat. The Abbey is using this place as a dragon farm to feed Kanonushi once he eats all the impurities from the humans. Keep going. Pick up 5 GRAPE GELs. Continue to the fork. Go south for SOUL BOTTLE. Backtrack and go east. Another long chat about Laphicet being reborn from Artorius' unborn kid. A skit can be activated about that gouma with Melchior. Take the warp at the bottom. ~ Curseland ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [HERBS] o Red Saffron o Red Rosemary Right behind the pillar where you start is RED SAFFRON. The White Turtlez is also here. It sells Topaz type weapons and armour. Use the save and move on to the northwest side, behind the pillar is RED ROSEMARY. Head south for a scene. Silver will be blasted by Kanonushi turning the poor boy into a dragon. Zaveid will take care of Kanonushi leaving you with Silver. Hellkite Lvl 50 HP: 79027 Weak: Normal, Water Resist: Fire, Earth Fight partway till a scene occurs, Zaveid will be downed by Kanonushi. You will be brought back into battle with the dragon, minus Laphicet. And he's back at full HP. Around half his HP, scene and he'll recover. Laphicet meanwhile is fighting Kanonushi. Kanonushi will try to turn Laphicet into a dragon, but he ends up burning the impurity and fainting. Run away! In the following scene, you can assume Kanonushi eats the "reasoning" left inside Melchior's gouma buddy, whom we can also assume is Aifread. When in control the party is in Cadonics Harbour. Head to the inn and rest. Dream sequence where Velvet talks to Seres, and briefly Celica. At some point she had regained her memories as her time as Celica. As thanks her older sister for the happy times they had together. Velvet will start oozing an aura of impurity/malevolence. But Laphicet said that Velvet is still Velvet whether she's human, gouma, or the demon lord. In the morning, the men will let the party know that the ship want to meet up at Lionel Wharf because the received information that Aifread was there. Of course, Eizen knows that this is a trap and that the gouma from earler is Aifread. Time to save the Banerdia Ship. When in control check out the first ! by the steps, the guy will says the prince is safe back in the capital, that the prince was kidnapped by the Lord of Calamity. The next ! by the warehouse, the guys are wondering why there are Abbey ships in the "Sea of No Return" where Curseland is. Talk to Eleanor at the dock. Talk to her again to go toe Lionel Wharf. Head out to the marsh and make your way to the gold star. Gouma Aifread Lvl 52 HP: 71705 Weak: Normal Resist: Water, Earth Take him down, scene after. In a turn of events, Laphicet will use his powers to turn Aifread back into a person. But he will not live. In his last breath, he tells Laphicet that he is a fragment of Kanonushi, if he manages to seal Kanonushi, something good should happen. Right now he's in the middle of a ceremony and cannot move. If the party is going to attack, they should do it soon by waking the four great spirits. Zaveid will get up and leave. He says the next time they meet, they'll settle the score. Long chat follows. Talk to Grimoire to continue. So the new plan is to wake the four great spirits of wind, fire, water, earth, to seal Kanonushi. The party is going to need souls free of impurity to wake them. Which means using the souls of the exorcists that the Abbey has eaten i.e. Oscar and Teresa. It could work. Talk to Benwick to continue. Talk to him again to go to Helvisa. Scene on the ship. Anime cutscene! Creepy jeebies. The party will pitstop in Zexon Harbour. Another scene. Yikes, this new pressure is stronger than the last one, its making people who did bad things kill themselves. ~ Zexon Harbour/Rogress ~  Time to check out what's going on. The first ! guy the exit will spill his dark needs in monotone. Kanonushi's suppressing people's karma (gou) but also their wills. And this the kind of world he wants to make, gross. The next ! guy by the inn: be doesn't think the Magilou Troupe is anything special and doesn't understand why he asked to see their tricks earlier. He wants to be erased from this world. That rareboard data is on the other side by the exit. There's another ! on the bridge of Danna Highway and one more ! outside the entrance of Rogress. Everyone's all the same. Head to the castle in Rogress. You'll find the prince and Tabatha, beat down the Malak. The other two will have take the prince and the girl. Go after the prince using the underground route again. Head south and pull the lever. Backtrack and take the fork to get the rareboard data. Once in the castle, between the bookshelves is the rareboard data. Head down to where the party first met Griffon. Just before the room where there is a slight jut on either wall is a Katz Box, open it for 65 and get a Katz. Beyond that is a scene. And a fight. The prince will be okay, but the girl will lose her will. This is the kind of world Kanonushi wants to create. The prince will tell the party that Artorius's ceremony ends on the Crimson Night. It's a race against the clock as it whose plan takes place first. Artorius' or ours. Exit out of Rogress. Head to the inn in Zexon Harbour for a !. This guy says he should be running away from his problems with Nectar or alcohol, he should go outside and throw it up. Rokurou says that's something you should do in the morning after getting wasted. You cannot teleport to Helvisa, so talk to Benwick. But before we go... Guy in the tavern in Izult: He tells you guys not to go near Paramidis, there's a strong gouma there and the Abbey is warning everyone. If Velvet eats it, she might get its strengths and become stronger herself. Head to Paramidis. The rareboard data for Manaan Sea Reef is by the entrance of the last map (the one that exits out to Paramidis). Inside beyond the central goblet is a red marker. GLUTTONY Lvl 35 HP: 35828 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire Collect 4350 gald for killing this guy. Talk to Benwick at any harbour and go to Helvisa. Velvet will dream, or see within herself, Oscar and Teresa, they are aware she wants to sacrifice them to the four great spirits. Oscar warns her, Lord of Calamity, no matter how many times they're reborn, they will continue to do what they do. When the party lands in Helvisa, they will note Kanonushi's latest effect hasn't completely reached this place. Now that we've arrived there's a few ! to check out. First ! in the harbour area: the old man is speaking strange things because of Kanonushi, but his son brings him back to himself. Second ! kid across from the church: kid's father is under the effect. Third ! merchant by the west: he's under the effect as well. Rokurou snaps the guy out of it, but he cannot remember what he said in that state. Fourth ! exorcist in the church: talk about using Malaks for experiments. They're taking place inside Fordis Ruins. This opens a sidequest. Fifth ! priest in the church: Eleanor wants to confess a lot of things. The priest is taken aback by her confessions. But she won't repent, she'll make the Abbey apologize for their actions. In turn the priest wants to repent on her behalf. Sixth ! at the inn: stay for a long chat of Rokurou training. Lionel Wharf !: Drinking party for Aifread. Get trophy: Follower of the Creed and Eizen's Colour Variation costume. The rareboard data for Helvisa is up on the second level.

More talk about that guy forced to stand guard outside. Keep going east and pick up SHARK BOTTLE. There's a save point in the middle of town. The monster hunt guy is leaning on a half-wall to the side. Go up the snow hill beside him to walk the ledge to the south for some katspi. Walk to the north to go down and jump across for some more katspi. South ! by the cow: it's always winter here. Everyone here is humble and works hard. The hot springs here are really nice. Behind them by the house is a chest with NEPTUNE SOIL. The item shop here sells Melon Gel, for 86,000 gald! And Mythril equipment. Head further north for a cutscene. Someone will scream gouma and everyone will run. The security has turned into a gouma. Velvet makes it back off from a kid with just a glance. Take it down. Scene after. Velvet tells them to warn the Abbey. On the next crimson night she will perform a sacrifice/ritual at the volcano to destroy kanonushi's power, and then brings out her arm and scares the people. She then calls herself, "Calamity, the Lord of Calamity!" Way to take over a town. Now we're going to wait till somebody, preferrably Shigure, shows up. When in control, go up the steps to the east and go north for a RED SAFFRON. Go east into the cave. Can't use the exit so go the other way up the winding stairs. Outside at the fork go south for a chest with TOPAZ FRAGMENT. Rareboard data to the north. Talk to Rokurou on the steps. Kurogane is inside the building behind him, turning his own body into a sword. Head back down and head south to find Eizen. He received a letter from his sister. He previously wrote about the party to her, she says she wants to meet them. Velvet calls him a Doting Brother (Baka-Ani), Eizen tells you to call him Idiot Brother (Ani-Baka) instead. Head to the next area for the last star. There's a Katz Box by the entrance that can be opened with 335. Get a Katz. The east path leads to 10,500 GALD. Glad the game understands how expensive Mythril equipment costs. Head forward for a scene with Eleanor, she's playing hide and seek with Moana. Head back and talk to Medisa by the item shop. She won't forgive Velvet if she's going to involve Moana. Laphicet will interrupt the upcoming fight. Medisa tells them she found a hot springs. Velvet asks if Laphicet wants to go in with her. Hahaha. Magilou will sense something and walk off. Hm. She'll walk outside to talk to Melchior. He knows of their plan. She recites what Melchior taught her in the past, to do all the bad deeds, the be the Abbey's shadow. But she has no intention of going back to his side. Rokurou and Eizen will show up to offer backup. She says hold up and tells him to wait for them at the volcano so Velvet can eat him. Anime cutscene after. Hahaha, Laphicet being flustered. She asks him to brush her hair. The malevolence starts leaking from her again, and she says she can't quite control it. So Laphicet starts praising her hair and saying if he used his special flames, he could turn her back to human. Maybe. A talk of what-ifs. But she stops herself short, saying she's done a lot of bad things, sacrificing others to move forward. If they defeat Kanonushi, what happens to all the kuuma? For her its you reap what you sow, but for the others like Moana, its most likely death. Even Laphicet as a fragment of Kanonushi, he might die too. She's not the "Lord of Calamity" or anything like that. Just a selfish girl who does what she wants. Laphicet manages to ease the mood by saying she is selfish for nicknaming him something so girly. He comes around and says "I forgive you" offering back the comb. She thanks him. The party will regroup after, the Crimson Night is starting. Get the trophy, The Howling Calamity. Check out the !s first: Medisa by the item shop: She tells Moana not to worry bout anything. Moana things Medisa has worries and will listen to hers. Medisa explains to her that Velvet are heading out on their last fight, it's a very important one. The long chat that follows, Eleanor wonders if there's a way to save Moana and the others. Pirate by the steps: opens another arena. Grimoire inside the igloo: talk about the translation of the book being completed. What Kanonushi needed to revive wasn't "impurity" it was more like the 7 deadly sins. Velvet is Wrath, Moana is Greed, Medisa is Pride, Teresa was Lust, Orthrus is Obsession, Griffon is Evasion, and the beetle is Self-Interest. *Orthrus, Griffon, and the beetle's were Japanese-directly translated words. It's not -exactly- like the seven deadly sins. They also wanted to pull "Despair" from Velvet. When in control, head to the exit through the cave, there will be a long chat. If you're missing one of the maps in Melshio, it's the Church on the upper level Rokurou was blocking earlier when Kurogane was turning himself into a sword. Back on Gaiburg Iceland, walk to the ! for a chat about the steam coming from the hole. Also double check your party order. Head towards the west for a chest with TOPAZ FRAGMENT.

There's a chest with MYTHRIL GARMENT. The red marker is.. SPECTRAL CRYSTAL Lvl 52 HP: 765 Resist: Everything The defence stats on this things are 9999 each and it reflects all attacks. Good luck trying to take it down. I find the quickest way to take it down is to switch the mode to Simple to remove all the resistances. Defeating the Crystal unlocks Chaos mode, I believe. There's a chest to the west with WIND RING and a Katz Box that can be opened with 335. Get a Katz. Head back and take the east exit. ~ Killaraus Volcano ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Grower's Demuth o Arcana Bottle o Shark Bottle x2 o Pinion Ring o Mythril Doll o 11,500 Gald o Mythril Piercings o Middle-Grade Powder o Mythril Talisman o Soul Bottle o Elixir [HERBS] o Red Lavender o Red Verbena [KATZ BOX] o Katz's Invitation For anyone who cares, apparenly Killaraus is a legendary mountain in Ireland, "famous for being the source of stones of Stonehenge in Arthurian legend." (Wikipedia) Collect GROWER DEMUTH from the chest. It's a belt for Velvet "decorated with roses of pale pink." I can't find an accurate translate for the item name, but it is a type of rose apparently. Katspi to the south, take the east exit. Katspi in the north end, at the fork go north and get ARCANA BOTTLE. Head south and take the exit. In this area you need the rareboard to go east, so since we don't have that yet, follow the path north. Follow it until you reach the highest level of the map. In the room head to the south for a RED SAGE. The south dead end has some katspi. Head west. At the fork head to the north end for a chest with SHARK BOTTLE. Head back and go south. In next "room" there's katspi to collect and a chest at the south point with PINION RING. Follow the path east for a long chat. Rokurou has something to ask Laphicet, "how was the bath, with Velvet?" Eizen wants to join in on the conversation too. He just wants to confirm Laphicet's resolve. Laphicet didn't go in with Velvet, he doesn't like being treated like a child. In the next area, follow the path to a save. Exit to the next area. Scene at the gold star. Shigure is waiting for you all. Magilou thinks he's borrowing spiritual power from the cat, but it's actually the cat suppressing his power for training. Yikes. Just for jokes: Ban-kai! Boss: Shigure Lvl 54 HP: 76281 Weak: Fire Resist: Wind He's got a hi-ougi. He'll use it more than once. Scene when his HP reaches zero. The climax of this scene was totally ruined by the fact that Rokurou's sword was a guitar case from his School Uniform DLC. When in control, check out the sword for a chat between Rokurou and Laphi. Talk to the cat too. She will run if it gets dangerous, but she'll stay here a little longer. Head north out the exit for another scene. Magilou reveals that her name used to be Magilanica Lu Mayvin, she was Melchior's granddaughter, former student and former special class Exorcists. But that was ten years ago and she... defected.

He will start an arte with the intention of blowing up the volcano, himself, and Velvet's party. Magilou will intervene and Velvet will eat him. Anime cutscene. Velvet awakens the four great spirits.

For the last three the reward is 41,500 Gald. Sweet. Rest at the inn for a long chat between Grimoire and Bienfu. Head to Helvisa when ready. Lots of ! to check out. First ! on the steps: Teresa fan wondering where she is. Second ! in the tavern, Lord of Calamity appearing in Melshio. Third ! by the Katz box, they were talking about preparing boats in case the Lord of Calamity caused another attack in Helvisa. Fourth ! by the harbour exit, he's scared of the Lord of Calamity. Head to the dock for a scene with Benwick. He will give Velvet an apple. He says it's called "Fortune Apple" a good luck charm. She can't eat it, but it will make her realize that her power to devour is also a part of Kanonushi's power. Talk to the last ! at the end of the dock, this opens another arena area. Talk to Benwick and head to Zexon Harbour. Scene on the boat between Velvet and Eleanor. Velvet has a favour to ask of her. If something were to happen to her, she wants Eleanor to take care of Laphicet. There's a part of her that wants to "leave hope for the world." The goal is the Saviour's Throne. But first, let's take care of all these sidequests and ! ~ Sidequests Etc. ~  TARIESHIN HARBOUR ------------------ Kid by the Gamerz: boy asking if the Lord of Calamity is going to destroy the world. ! by the tavern: scene where a family has just moved here. The kids say Zaveid will come and save them in times of trouble. Talk to the guy to learn about their connection with Zaveid. He says Zaveid "kidnapped" this two adults, who are cooks, to a place with these kids and a person name Theodora which the kids claim is Zaveid's lover. He wanted them to make food that human child would like. She says one day Theodora went out one day and didn't come back. Zaveid went to look for her, so he left the children in the care of the adults. Head up the steps and in a long chat, the party reasons that the dragon that Zaveid protected earlier is most likely Theodora. Priest in the church: He asks Bienfu to confess and repent. Or he'll curse him. The confession is so weak, the priest doesn't want to forgive him for it. Girl ! by the south exit: this guy asks her to prepare some lilac flowers. He's getting married but he cannot forget about Nico. It's almost time for the festival, so he wants to visit her. Go up the ladder and rareboard across to the Katz !, he will invite the party to the Katz Village for rescuing many of their friends. Velvet thinks there's no need to go but Eleanor and Eizen really want to go. Talk to the Katz again to go there. Long chat when you arrive. Turns out Velvet's allergic to cats. KATZ VILLAGE ------------ Looks exactly like the one in Zestiria. Of course it would. If you stand still (as Velvet?) she will sneeze often in the short chat to the side. ! by the entrance: Katz Pro Wrestling. ! on the bridge: this Katz has a ship ready to go on an adventure. The name of the ship is a pun on the Banerdia ship, Nyanerdia. ! by the rareboard data: every Katz has a hometown and a specific dialect. Brother, Sister, Mother in Nyagoya dialect sound the same to Eleanor but Father is still "Father" (Otou-san). Haha. The last two ! are for viewing chats (left) and anime movies (right) that you have already seen so far. There's rareboard data in front of the chest by the entrance. Chests: 765 gald, Adamant Fragment x2, Elixir Herbs: Red Chamomile ABAL ---- Examine the graves outside Velvet's home for dialogue. Talk about Celica's love for puns. Might have to examine the grave from the side. Examining it from the front gives the description. MELSHIO ------- ! at the church: Velvet wonders if confessing/talking here will reach Kanonushi. Most likely not because it's not a leyline point. Laphicet tries to comfort her a little regarding her brother. Medisa outside the inn: Moana has a fever, she says she doesn't want to drink her mother's medicine. It might be a special medicine for Moana. They will go to Haria to look for it since Medisa is still wanted by the Abbey. Eleanor wants to be responsible and do this for the girl because she also lost her mother. Laphicet will randomly feel something bad for a moment. This activates Eleanor's sub-event, and you'll only be able to use the bottle to return to Helvisa. Talk to Benwick and you can only go to Izult Harbour. IZULT HARBOUR ------------- ! on the lower level of the main village area: Southern Teresa Fanboy. ! old man in the church: talk of since daemonblight destroying Haria.

There's a giant troll up ahead in Haria. The game will make you manually make the track to Haria. Pick up the rareboard data one the first map of Makril to make life easier. HARIA ----- Scene when you enter. The rumoured Giant Troll isn't here. Velvet will find the medicine with a memo on it. A note from her mother on how to get Moana to take it. Midway the troll will show up. Of course it would. The treasure on its neck is "Eleanor", basically this gouma razed her home. BOSS TROLL Lvl 64 HP: 102837 Weak: Normal, Water Resist: Fire, Earth, Wind Scene after. Eleanor will realize she was seeking revenge for her mother. Hence that painful stab Laphicet had earlier. Velvet will finish the note. It's pretty detailed. It says Moana's fever stems from being very anxious and her mother writes that her child is spoiled and lonely, she asks for whoever reads the note to take care of Moana in her place. While we're here, examine the ! (shiny spot) on the floor for dialogue, it's pieces of the jewel the troll had on its neck. Take a bottle and go straight to Melshio. Inside, Dyle will say Medisa took Moana to Killaraus Volcano. She's not too far in, find her at the ! for a scene. You'll arrive at Melshio automatically. REWARDS: Eleanor's Colour Variation costume (hair and clothes) and a trophy Hope Surpassing Reason. MELSHIO (AGAIN) --------------- Head back inside the inn room and talk to Moana. She wants you to open her treasure box with her. There's a key for the box. Find Dyle to get the key. He's at the northern map. The key isn't there, it's fallen out. Go back to the inn and check behind the dog for the key. Go out and jump across the ice rocks for a chest !. Inside is a recipe from her mother. REWARD: Mabo Curry Bun recipe. Go inside the inn and go near the dogs for a scene. Velvet offers them a quiche made from her family's recipe and explains how its made to the dogs. She says she promised to share the recipe to Nico. She wants them to tell their owner that she won't be going to the same place as Nico. REWARD: trophy The Great Gorger. Head to the ! by the save for a long chat between Moana and Rokurou. She's teaching the dogs tricks. Finally done here. RENEED ------ Guy by the save in the harbour: message from the Madam directed to Eizen. He tells you there is a book in Cadonics Harbour being sold, that would be of interest to Eizen. He should buy it before it sells out. Guy south of the save in the harbour: rumours of Titania Prison Island, Lord of Calamity, exorcists etc. Woman outside the village: rumours about the incident in Melshio, about the witch. Guy south of the save in the town: rumours that the exorcists suddenly lost their power (using the Malaks). LAPHICET & ANCIENT SECRET MEDICINE ---------------------------------- Woman ! outside the inn: Live's mother hands over a memo to Laphicet. Live has such a high fever that he cannot move. She thanks him for being Live's friend. Everyone in the village avoided him because of his illness. Head to Davar Woods covered at  to collect the next ingredient. Return to Reneed after and talk to the woman outside the inn again. Watch the following scene. The last ingredient is actually "Malak's Tear". Live's father will also return. Live will be cured of the illness. Yay, happy ending! TROPHY: The Praying Malak ZEXON HARBOUR ------------- ! by the save: citizens are giving the exorcists crap for not being reliable anymore since they cannot control Malaks anymore. ! by the Danna Highway exit: he recognizes your party as the Magilou Troupe. He wanted to greet you guys. ! across from the inn: everything's become clear for this guy since he stopped taking alcohol or nectar. He's now into tea. ROGRESS ------- ! on the west side of the first map: they're people from Melshio. ! guy by the exit to the church area map: the bandit from the mountain when Eleanor joined the party. He's looking for a new recipe to draw in female customers. ! old man by the fountain: more talk about the Lord of Calamity. Lots of people who've lost family are at the churches, praying. It's important to smile in sad times. ! guy outside the tavern: now that the exorcists are useless, the people will start taking initiative. ! Tabatha inside the tavern: she came back to the tavern, she doesn't want you guys to worry bout her. It's been so long since she came back, they had to restock everything. Talk to her a second time to chat about Shigure. Stay at the inn for a long chat with Laphicet and Velvet about cooking rice. Everything she knows, she learned from her sister. If you still haven't found the rareboard data for this place yet, it's just inside the church. STONEBERRY ---------- ! in the fields with the red berry: green normin doll for Eizen's Nor-God Doll sidequest. ! guy by the big tree stump: Eizen and Magilou perform a skit for Magilou's sidequest, Magilou Troupe Conquers. ! guy in the rice paddy: talks about how the girl had this great idea to create a source of revenue for Stoneberry. ! old man on the bench: he's made a discovery in his search for a new alcohol. Collect rareboard data to the north and talk to the last !: he talks about a horrible incident from the past. He was the first to discover it. Magilou knows about this incident. Surprisingly enough, this happened when the old man was a boy. Again, how old is Magilou!? CADONICS HARBOUR ---------------- ! by the tunnel entrance: blacksmith talking about sword forging skills and sword users. ! by the food stall: more Lord of Calamity rumours, in one, Lord of Calamity creates gouma. Rareboard data is beside the warehouse. Go inside and talk to the ! to find Donera. He will give you the book for free knowing the rumours about Eizen. Grimoire will be on hand to translate the book. To potentially remove the Shinigami's Curse, Eizen has to eat the heart of a white-horned dragon. Zaveid will make a random appearance. IZULT (AGAIN) ------------- ! at the dock behind Benwick: a crew has found an island. Talk to him again to go to "Fear Island" at  ! in the tavern: for Magilou Troupe Conquers sidequest. This time with Rokurou. ! at the inn: there's apparently a talking penguin. Stay at the inn after. Outside, go down the steps and talk to the ! penguin. Eleanor is shocked that food talks! Damn it I knew this penguin sounded familiar! JUDE Lvl 68 HP: 74850 Weak: Fire Resist: Wind He'll turn back into a penguin afterward. He's fighting to protect penguins from poachers like them! He apologize for suddenly fighting them. Omg, he even explains to them that he's from a different universe called Liese Maxia and that he's a medical student. He was just suddenly thrown into this world and turned into a penguin. He's looking for a friend that came to this world with him though. A person named "Milla" and describes her. She's also the master of the great spirits of Wind, Fire, Water, and Earth. Hmmmm. REWARD: Always Jude attachment. HARIA (AGAIN) ------------- ! blue doll behind the weapon stall: last doll for the Lucky Nor-God sidequest. White Turtlez appears with a letter for Eizen. Doesn't sound like its from his sister though. ! east of the inn: woman moved here from Izult, she couldn't leave Amenochi alone. ! guy inside the inn: they're looking into the state of things now that the mother-daughter priestess pair for the shrine have gone missing. They're travelling researchers. LIONEL WHARF ------------ Talk to both ! here to unlock two new arena locations. MAGILOU TROUPE CONQUERS ----------------------- Head back to Rogress again and talk to the guy at the !. Magilou wants to have a battle with Majilou, but that's not possible because she recently had a fight with Barta. She wanted to take a break. Go to Zamal Stone Cave at  to finish up this sidequest. PRISON ISLAND TITANIA --------------------- Talk to Benwick at any harbour to access Titania. Head forward to the ! for a long chat. The Abbey has pulled away from this place, great. Head to the south room with the ! to find a box and scene. Meet Normin Phoenix, the strongest among the Normin Malak. He is the one who has sent those challenge letters to Eizen. Apparently Phoenix's read those letters Eizen's been sending his sister. He questions why Eizen doesn't tell her the entire truth. Eizen doesn't want to be lectured by someone like Phoenix. He'll force the party into a fight. Phoenix Lvl 100 HP: 128520 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire, Water He has two hi-ougis. When you bring his HP down to zero the first time, his second hi-ougi revives him and refills his HP, possibly taking down a party member at the same time. So basically you're fighting him twice. Eizen, at the end, wants the Normin to protect his little sister from all the bad things, gouma and possibly dragons. Not as an order, but as a request. In turn, the Normin wants Eizen to write his sister a letter. But he's already written one. If you've played Zestiria, this Normin looks a lot like the doll on Edna's umbrella. Head back to the ship for a long chat to finish up this Phoenix business. Bienfu and Grimoire explain the two types of Normin, "Dog Type" and "Cat Type". Sleep at the "inn" for a long chat fight between Dyle and Benwick. Velvet steps in to shut them up. The origin of this fight? Benwick squeezed lemon on to Dyle's kara-age (fried chicken). Stay again for another chat between Moana and Dyle. While we're here, head to the room with the Katz Box for a fight against a red marker. SUCCUBUS QUEEN Lvl 50 HP: 74652 Weak: Water Resist: Normal CAMEO FIGHT ----------- After defeating Jude, the talking penguin, head to Tarienshin Harbour to get information on Milla, who as a penguin, defeated some exorcists up in Figal Snow Fields. Milla is the ! where Velvet's ship first crashed after escaping prison. Teleport to Helvisa and manually track your way there. If you've got the rareboard data, you can go across that gap on the upper level of the south map for a GOLD LUMP. Use the save, and I hope you restocked your items from fighting Phoenix. Uh turns out, Milla wasn't the penguin after all. But she still forces you into battle. MILLA Lvl 72 HP: 83220 Weak: Wind Resist: Normal Compared to Phoenix this was pretty easy. Don't forget her hi-ougi. It's kind of nice seeing two female characters drawn by the same designer meet each other. They even have the same stances, kind of. When in control, hey there's a red marker: MANAGARMR Lvl 41 HP: 49531 While we're here, let's head back to Helvisa. Don't forget to collect the monster hunt money! The Boss Troll from Eleanor's sidequest plus Managarmr equals 30,000 gald! Head to the harbour for the ! knights talking about Shirtsuno (White Horn) Dragon in Gaiburg Iceland. Which opens up the next sidequest. INJURED DRAGON -------------- Head to Melshio and exit out the east or teleport to the east exit. Go south to the !. Zaveid will show up and get in the way. ZAVEID Lvl 60 HP: 69888 Resist: Earth Scene and long chat after. REWARD: Eizen's Jacket Off costume variation. Head back to the church in Melshio to talk to Grimoire. Learn more about Magilou. The Normins saw her birth into this world. She was born with incredible power but her family threw her away and she as picked up by Melchior. Long chat follows. REWARD: Magilou's colour variation costume (outfit and hair). ZAVEID'S RYUGI [STYLE] ---------------------- Head to Reneed and talk to the guild member at the !. The madam wants you to kill the white horn dragon because it's attacked people in Aldina Grasslands. Head to the cliff with the ! for a scene. SHENLONG Lvl 62 HP: 90714 Weak: Fire Resist: Water, Earth, Wind She's pretty easy to take down simply because of her size. Scene after. Eizen explains that the Shinigami's Curse is something that's been cast on him. The Dragon itself is a curse cast on all Malaks. Eventually he will become a dragon too, it won't be long. Zaveid says that when that time comes he will save Eizen by killing him. Trophy: A Promise Made Head back to that family in Tarieshin for another scene. They say Zaveid visited them just the other day. Theodora wasn't with him, but the matter has been settled. Zaveid told them that they were going on a journey together. SEEK THE TRUTH OF THE PAST -------------------------- Talk to Murujimu the Cat spirit in Izult Harbour. There's an entrance into the leylines in the ruins beyond Abal. Head to the ruins for a long chat. Head around the side of the hole in the ground and examine it for the other green !. Take the orange portal back to the leylines covered in . REWARD: Velvet's Colour Variation costume. (Which I think looks hideous). DIVIDED FUTURE -------------- Head to the ! in Stoneberry to overhear the exorcists talk about the dragon in Curseland. Apparently the dragon, Silver, has gotten away. Go to  to cover this area. REWARD: Laphicet's Colour Variation costume. FOREIGN RELICS -------------- Head to Izult and talk to the guild member behind one of the houses south of the tavern. He will give information on an un-openable treasure box in Manaan Sea Reef. After in the long chat Eizen will say Aifread has seen a similar box where he got Zigfried. Teleport to Haria's east exit so that you're in Manaan Sea Reef and then make your way to the ! for a scene. Eizen will speak the magic word to get it to open, which also happens to be the ship's name. Inside is a book. It's a research book on Zigfried, it was originally used to prevent (?) Malaks from becoming dragons. Apparently there's a bullet that goes with the gun. LETTER FROM EDNA ---------------- Teleport to Zexon Harbour east exit and head to the ! by the north exit, the White Turtlez has a letter for Eizen from his sister. She's so tsundere in this letter. She tells him to write more, even though she's not really anticipating them, and such. She also thanks him for the Normin doll and says it sometimes speaks (yep, Phoenix). You also finally learn that her name is Edna, and that Eizen named her so. Can I just say Eizen with reading glasses *_* And flustered!Eizen. SAVIOUR'S THRONE ---------------- Talk to the ! Malaks on the upper level on the west side, they say they're going to refine the Kamui technique and keep it for future generations. It will have its use in the future possibly. ROKUROU'S DEMON SWORD --------------------- Head to the upper level on the east side and fight the last ! daemon for Rokurou's Demon Sword sidequest. RYUUMAJIN Lvl 67 HP: 78244 Weak: Wind Resist: Normal, Earth, Water Get the trophy Emergency Management after (assuming you hunted down all the monsters). The daemon will start talking after in a female voice. Rokurou tells her to rest in peace because he killed Shigure. This daemon is actually the last generation's "Shigure", Rokurou's mother. His mother cut his grandfather and took on the name, and then Shigure killed her and took the name. But Eizen says he felt a Malak's presence since it looked part dragon. It seems Rokurou's mother was reborn into a Malak and then turned into this dragon gouma retaining human memories. Guess it depends on how strong the memories are. Head to the tavern in Rogress to have a chat with Tabatha. Apparently twenty years ago, Tabatha met his mother and knew this would happen on day. Rokurou's mom knew her son would slay her as the strongest swordsmen. REWARD: Rokurou's Colour Variation Costume Trophy: Rangetsu Initiate ~ Davar Woods ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Arcana Bottle o Panacea Bottle o Dark Bottle o Force Ring o 3600 Gald o Denole Bottle o Soul Bottle o Pure Blade o Feld Fragment [HERBS] o Red Rosemary o Red Saffron Basically here for Laphicet's sidequest, so might as well cover the whole place. To get here, teleport to the Stoneberry entrance and take the north dungeon exit. Head in, at the fork go west and then north to pick up ARCANA BOTTLE. Head south, there's a tree here with some red fruit. Examine it to eat the red fruit, and then head east passing through the red gas. Follow the path as it winds north and ignore the blue gas exit and keep going west. At the west end is a tree with blue fruit. South of that is a RED ROSEMARY by the stream. Eat the blue fruit and take the exit north. I assume that you can only eat one fruit at a time. In the next map head all the way west for a chest with PANACEA BOTTLE and a blue fruit tree. Take the upper west exit next. In this area head north up the rocks to a ledge with a red fruit tree. Eat the red fruit. Head south up the rocks jump down on the other end of the ledge to access the rest of the map. Ignore the upper west path to the red marker for now, you need the rareboard to reach it. Head south and pass through the red gas for a bunch of katspi and a Katz Box that requires 375 to open. Get a Katz. Head south for a chest with DARK BOTTLE and a tree with yellow fruit. Eat it. Return to the last map and head east, passing through the yellow gas. There's another yellow fruit tree just behind it. Take the east exit. In this map, the rareboard data is due north. To the west of it is a blue fruit tree. Ignore the south point (red gas) and head to the southeast point for a chest with FORCE RING and red fruit tree. Eat the red fruit. Return to the south point and pass through for katspi and 3600 GALD. Go back west and eat the blue fruit. Continue northeast past the blue gas. West of the exit in the corner is RED SAFFRON and another blue fruit tree. Take the north exit. In this area, go west and rareboard across the stream for a chest with DENOLE BOTTLE and a tree with yellow fruit. Doesn't matter if you eat it I think. Head back and go east passing through the blue gas if you're still on blue fruit. Head north up some rocks and follow the ledge down to an isolated area with RED CHAMOMILE and a red fruit tree. Eat the red fruit and go back. Head east through the red gas for katspi and a chest with SOUL BOTTLE. Go back and head north for a blue fruit tree. Eat the blue fruit and then backtrack to the west side of the map to eat the yellow fruit. Head back to the northeast side again to pass through the yellow gas. At the ! is a scene with an exorcist. He's holding the ingredient for the elixir. You get it without having to fight for it. He also tells you the last ingredient is "Malak's Prayer." He's also making this potion for Live. He is probably Live's father. When in control collect all the katspi and a chest with PURE BLADE. Now that we have the rareboard data, backtrack to the area with the red marker, make sure you eat the correct fruits along the way to pass through the gases. DRYAD Lvl 42 HP: 40062 Resist: Water After, pick up the katspi on both ends and a chest with FELD FRAGMENT. That's it for this place. ~ Zamal Stone Cave ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Arcana Bottle o Shark Bottle o Grape Gel x2 o Panacea Bottle o 13,200 Gald o Mythril Fragment o Denole Bottle o Soul Bottle o Elixir o Blaze Paper Leaf o 10,200 Gald [HERBS] o Red Rosemary o Red Saffron [KATZ BOX] o Ring Piercings (Left Ear) Basically here for Magilou Troupe Conquers sidequest. Might as well just explore while we're at it. To get here, teleport to the Stoneberry entrance and take the south dungeon marker exit. Head straight inside the ! for Majilou and a daemon fight! FATTY (no seriously, deppuri means stout/portly/fat) Lvl 62 HP: 69250 Weak: Earth Resist: Normal, Fire Trophy: Magilou's Magnificent Menagerie. Rareboard data off to the side. Use it to get to the south side of the map. Go west for a chest with ARCANA BOTTLE. Take the lower east exit. Then take the first west exit. In the first area at the north is a chest with SHARK BOTTLE. Head south and rareboard across at the fork to the east for a chest with GRAPE GEL. Go back to the last map. Head south. Taking the lower west path leads to a Katz Box that takes 375 to open. Get a Katz and RING PIERCINGS (LEFT EAR). I guess the last earrings attachment was just like studs then. Take the west exit and backtrack to this map. This time take the east path to a dead end and chest with PANACEA BOTTLE. Take the south exit. In this area head straight south around the bend for 13,200 GALD. Head west down the water slide, follow the south wall for RED ROSEMARY. Ignore the middle north exit and continue west. Before the north-most exit is a chest with MYTHRIL FRAGMENT. Take the exit. In this area take the right path at the fork and pick up a chest with DENOLE BOTTLE. Go around to the left path for a chest with GRAPE GEL. Take the north exit. In this area head south across the gaps for a chest with SOUL BOTTLE. Head back and go north to a room of zombies and katspi and go northeast to a room with more katspi, RED SAFFRON, ELIXIR, and BLAZE PAPER LEAF. Head back and take the east exit. In this area to the south is a chest with 10,200 GALD. That's it for this place. ~ Normin Island ~  Actually, this is Normin Island, the homeland of the Normin. Everyone's so relaxed, hahaha. Guess that's what they mean by the island sucking strength out of the arrivers. Grimoire and Bienfu didn't want to say anything because ruining a Man's Romance (of travelling the sea) is taboo, right? Island of fear indeed. Omg the sound effects when you walk. Head forward and jump off the edge to the left for the first !This whole place is made out of food or something, they're resting in a cup of tea! Jump across the chocolate river to talk to the next !. This Normin says he recently met Zaveid who rescued a Malak child and even gave the kid his jacket. Now Zaveid's going around topless/jacketless/shirtless! (If you've played Zestiria, this kid is probably Dezel). Head back and across the bridges going north to the giant Normin head. Go around the back of the head and up the ladder for a Katz Box that takes 525 to open. The Normin on the head with the ! talk about how Phoenix has found a new objective in life (protecting Edna) and wonder if they should go visit him. Head back down. On the other side of the giant head there's a bridge going up to the other area. You can play a new mini-game here called Norumotion. Back at the fork, you can go down the chocolate path going southwest and under the bridge for the rareboard data. That's it for this place. ~ Leylines ~  From the starting point take the south warp the other side. Head around west for the red marker. PHANTOM Lvl 54 HP: 55682 Weak: Water Resist: Wind, Earth Head back to the last area and take the west warp. Head south for a scene and memory ball. A flashback to when Artorius formed a contract with Seres. It's also related to the sorcerer's ring Velvet received after eating Seres. Take the south warp. Head south for another memory. This one is back when Celica was still alive. Arthur is talking about the great four spirits and gouma. He's talking about a world that Celica hasn't seen (assuming she never left her village). She says he must really love this world and the people who live in it. Take the south warp and advance to the ! for another memory between Seres and Laphicet. At this point, Seres has her memories of when she was Celica. She knows who Laphicet was reborn from (her own unborn child when she was human). She says it's better for him not to have a will or memories of the past. This is just before she goes to free Velvet. She apologizes to Laphicet and asks him to forgive such a mother for being unable to protect her own child. REWARD: Velvet's Colour Variation costume. ~ Curseland ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Rise of Satan o Elixir o Pump Upper [HERBS] o Red Sage o Red Chamomile o Red Verbena From where you start go all the way west and at the northwest point is a chest with RISE OF SATAN, an armour/accessory for Magilou. Head south and under the pillar is RED SAGE. Head back. By the save around the rocks is the rareboard data. In the northwest area of this section is a Katz Box that requires 300 to open. Get a Katz. Head up the hill and follow the southeast ledge to a pillar with RED CHAMOMILE and katspi. Follow the east ledge to the north end for a chest with ELIXIR. Going near the ! will start a scene that leads to a fight against Silver uh, Hellkite. HELLKITE Lvl 64 Hp: 122445 Weak: Water Resist: Fire, Earth Take him down and he'll turn into a skeleton after. REWARD: Laphicet's Colour Variation costume. From where you gain control, head to the south point for katspi and RED VERBENA. Head west for katspi, a chest with PUMP UPPER for Eizen, and the red marker. DEMON'S ROD Lvl 66 HP: 103015 Weak: Wind Resist: Normal, Earth That's basically it for all the available sidequests and extra stuff at this point. ~ Eight-Headed Dragon, Kanonushi ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Soul Bottle x3 o Shark Bottle o Melon Gel x4 o Purification o Helmut Schmitt o Inofle Bottle o Elixir o Wicked Shadow Knife [KATZ BOX] o Thick Eyebrows When you're ready, head to Saviour's Throne and go up the grand staircase to the gold star. There will be a scene. When in control, you can talk to each party member. Save if you need to and examine the beam of light for the gold star. You'll be taken to the last dungeon! In the first area, collect the katspi at the lower west end and then head to the north end and examine the glyph. Now take the warp in the center. In this next area there's a save point at the fork. Take the only available warp at the north end. Here, take the first path north and go right for a chest with SOUL BOTTLE. Head back and go east, jump over to the other side. Jump again until you've reached the end of the path, go east down the slope. Take the south warp and check the floating orb for TWILIGHT SPIRIT BALL. Check the chest behind it for SHARK BOTTLE. Head back to the last area. On the same level head all the way north and touch the glyph to activate a warp and then take the warp behind it. You're technically on the same map but on different heights. Take the south warp that opened up as a result of touching the last glyph. Here take the path across and continue up until you're at the highest level. You'll find yourself going east in the process. Jump across to the west to touch a glyph and activate another warp on the lower level. Go all the way east and pick up CRIMSON DAWN SPIRIT BALL. Take the warp north of it. In this area head all the way west for a green inactive warp on the floor and a cenotaph behind it. You'll have to find the right spirit ball to insert into it. We don't have it yet. Head back and take the other warp. Head back to the save point and take the right warp (red dungeon marker). Follow the spiral path until you can go into the north nook. There's a Katz box here that can be opened with 410. Get a Katz and THICK EYEBROWS. Continue on the path until you can go into the south nook. There's a chest here with MELON GEL. Examine the door at the end to exit. In this area, head forward for a scene. Take the door at the other end to continue. Go all the way south and examine the green crystal to break it. Head across the new bridge. On the other side is a save point. Take the door at the north end. Follow the short path to another door. At the four-way split, take the south path until you're back in the purple area. Go all the way south and break the red crystal to form a bridge. Go south and pick up the rareboard data. Head north and take the middle door. Here, go north and rareboard across to get katspi and WHITE MOON SPIRIT BALL. Take the rareboard across the south path for MELON GEL and PURIFICATION, a weapon for Velvet. Head back inside and take the north most door back to the four way split. Go west and rareboard across for a ridiculous amount of katspi and a chest at the end with HELMUT SCHMITT, armour for Velvet. Head back to the four-way split. You can insert a spirit ball into the floating cenotaph to the north and take the red warp to, I assume, an optional boss. UNLAWFUL VESSEL Lvl 65 HP: 68888 Weak: Normal, Water Resist: Wind Now that you have the rareboard, what you can do is backtrack to the map before the Katx Box, take the southwest warp and head up until you can rareboard across an area for katspi and take the warp in that area. This brings you to another section with lots of katspi, a chest with SOUL BOTTLE in the north end, and warps on either side of the pathway. Take the north warp and put a stone in the cenotaph to activate the yellow warp on the ground. It takes you to another optional boss. AERIAL TROOP Lvl 65 HP: 104936 Weak: Normal Resist: Fire, Water, Earth Head back to the area with the chest. Taking the south warp brings you back to the lower level with the save point. Head back through the red dungeon marker and make our way back to the room where we picked up the rareboard data. Go south, jump down the hole and pick up SKY GREEN SPIRIT BALL. Follow the path and break the purple crystal at the end to form a bridge somewhere. Drop down the hole nearby. Pick up the chest with INOFLE BOTTLE. Drop down the other hole to find yourself back at the save point. Head east and take the lower warp. Head all the way northwest across the new bridge for a chest with SOUL BOTTLE. From here we can backtrack again to the area before the Katz Box and take the south east warp. In this area jump across the platform to the west for that green glyph and cenotaph. Insert the spirit ball to activate the warp. CRIMINAL AVENGER Lvl 65 HP: 99243 Weak: Fire Resist: Earth Backtrack again to the room with the rareboard data and head south taking the door by the hole. Rareboard across and enter the next door. Collect MYTHRIL BLADE from the chest. Head back to the rareboard data room, go east across the bridge and take the door here. Some chats to activate here. Head inside for another four-way split. Examine the cenotaph to insert another spirit ball. Take the warp for another optional boss. GODDESS OF REVENGE Lvl 65 HP: 102414 Weak: Wind Resist: Normal, Earth Head back, at the four way split go west, and go through the door at the end of this path. Back in another purple room, follow the path to the east end and break the red crystal to form bridges. Head back to the west side and get a chest with ELIXIR. Head to the north part of this area now, ignore the exits and go to the east end for AZURE SPIRIT BALL. Take the door north to exit. Head east across to pick up PURPLE CLOUD SPIRIT BALL. Go west for a chest with WICKED SHADOW KNIFE. Guess where we can backtrack to with these spirit balls? The purple on is the closest. Head back to the four-way split with the white glyph. Go east and follow the path to the end through a door. The purple one goes here. Beyond the warp is: GOD OF DEATH SLANDERER Lvl 65 HP: 90810 Resist: Normal, Fire Now for the blue one, you're going to have to backtrack to the room where the map looks like this: -u-, it's got a save point there, and it's also where you broke the first crystal. Quickest way to get there is going north from the four-way split until you're back in the purple area. Head all the way north and take the eastern warp. Take the west exit. Rareboard across at the other end and insert the blue ball. MIRACLE IMITATOR Lvl 65 HP: 112432 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire Let's go back to the area where we found the blue ball. Take the west warp and break the crystal at the end. Take the new bridge to a save point. Instead of going north, follow the path east and go to the south end for a MELON GEL. Take the fork going down for another chest with MELON GEL. Return to the save point. Take the north warp for a scene. Up ahead is Kanonushi. Go up the stairs for another scene. ARTORIUS Lvl 65 HP: 77837 Weak: Earth Resist: Fire, Water KANONUSHI Lvl 65 HP: 67567 Weak: Fire Resist: Normal, Wind You'll have to fight them at the same time. I took out Kanonushi first, and then went after Artorius. Artorius has a hi-ougi. Scene after. Guess what? KAMUI ARTORIUS Lvl 65 HP: 151621 Weak: Fire, Wind Resist: Water, Earth Am I the only one who thinks if Yggdrasil from Symphonia aged... Anyways. This form has a hi-ougi too. He'll probably use it more than once. Scene after. Velvet seals herself away with Kanonushi. This allows Laphicet and the other kuuma to live instead of dying, if they were to kill Kanonushi. The four great spirits appear and require a replacement for Kanonushi, as a new master of spirits. Laphicet offers up himself. Anime cutscene after. He uses his flame to purify the world, in a sense, turning everyone human again. Or rather, his flame got rid of the excess impurity, giving people a second chance. But it couldn't change the hearts of others, hence why Rokurou is still part daemon. Laphicet then gets his true name, Maoterasu. :OOOO Congratulations you beat the game! You can skip the credits if you want, but some of the art is nice. I think it's supposed to be Velvet and Laphicet's dream of travelling. There's even art of Artorius and Celica's child, and the ahoge is there too haha. Anime cutscene after of what everyone's up t after that point. Laphicet says it wasn't the end, but a new beginning. You earn the trophy Velvet Crowe and can save Clear Data now. ~ Post Game ~  Load your Clear Save file and exit out to Danna Highway. There's a Katz with a ! at the entrance. Talking to him opens the EX dungeon at Killaraus Volcano. You will get ROKUROU'S HOT SPRINGS costume outfit, after the long chat that comes with this. It's literally just a bath towel. It's a sign. Head to the Normin Island and talk to the green Normin at the !. He says he hasn't seen people since venturing the world with Artorius and Claudine Asgard. Uh, but that was around 300 years ago. He says some contract was made so that one lived 300 years. In the long chat that follows, the same king Claudine Asgard, was also Artorius's teacher. He was also the previous generation's (millenia's?) Shepherd. You might score the Refreshing Conversation trophy at this point. This activates a sidequest. EXORCIST ARTHUR --------------- Go to Exorcists' Tower Lowleine and talk to the Normin to learn more about Artorius's past. He killed Claudine Asgard here a couple decades ago, breaking a contract to never kill anyone. After that, he thought he was likely to turn into a gouma, so he headed east (to Eastgand, to Abal). There's a Rareboard mini-game Gamerz here. Head to Abal. Head to the graves to find another Normin. The flower on the grave was not left behind by the Normin, but most likely Artorius. The Normin asks you to "free" him. That's the end of this sidequest. Head to Zexon Harbour and talk to the ! across from the Gamerz. Another arena area will be available. EX DUNGEON ---------- *** PLEASE TAKE NOTE *** Updated October 15, 2016: The ex dungeon is a little too tough on my patience level so I will -not- be doing this dungeon. I will leave behind what I've already typed out below, which is getting you to the first puzzle room. Beyond that you will have to find another guide, Japanese or English, official or otherwise, to help you get through it. Winter is a busy time for me at work, so I'm shelving Berseria away at this point. Thank you to everyone who has visited and used the guide. I wish you all good luck in completing the ex dungeon! *** THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT *** Head to Killaraus Volcano, go inside and take the warp that will take you further in. Save and hop across. Examine the ! across from the Katz Box to end up back in the leylines. But it's not just any regular dungeon ;) ~ Stairway to Heaven ~  ITEMS CHECKLIST------------------------------------------------------------- [CHESTS] o Mythril Vest x2 o Grape Gel o Apple Gel o Mythril Doll o o From where you start, head all the way south east, ignore the warp. The south east point has a Katz Box. Open it with 525 and get a Katz. Take the closest warp here. Head up and go southeast at the fork. There's a new looking chest here with MYTHRIL VEST. Head north for a chest with GRAPE GEL, and take the warp. Get a PANACEA BOTTLE and backtrack to the first area with the Katz Box. Take the north warp. Head east, midway along the north wall is a APPLE GEL. Take the warp here. Scene. You're still in the same dungeon, a separate space with lots of hidden secrets here. Lots of Katz are also sealed here, and he's blaming it on Velvet's party. A voice will tell you not to advance and to worry about your own world. But Velvet will be intrigued and challenged to continue. Continue southeast, collecting rareboard data along the way. Take the exit. I'm going to assume the usual chests and katspi are not here, so just take the north exit again. Outside head north and pick up MYTHRIL DOLL and MYTHRIL VEST. Take the south-most exit. Inside take the south exit. Head up to the dungeon marker and quick save, then enter through that door. Head forward to find a Katz, you will get another Nyath Towel as a thank you gift for Laphicet. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- COPYRIGHT [CPY] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This file is copyright 2016 Lillian Yeung.
