    /////I)INTRODUCTION[ITRDC]/////
    ///////////////////////////////
    
    Hello community. This Guide is for the North American Super
    Nintendo release of Mystic Quest, also known as Final Fantasy:
    Mystic Quest by Squaresoft. This Guide will concern itself with the
    awesome art of speedrunning through a game which is a pretty
    fascinating approach to play through a game and the reason i am writing
    this.
    I am a speedrunner of this game myself and many people asked me for my
    notes on this game and how to approach getting into speedrunning it.
    Since i dont have notes that are readable and i cant give a one para-
    graph answer on how to approach it, i decided to write a full guide
    about it to clear up any concerns/questions and make it easily
    accessable.
    FAIR WARNING: THE GUIDE WILL FULLY SPOIL THE STORY. IF YOU DO NOT WANT
    THE STORY TO BE SPOILED, DO NOT READ THIS GUIDE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
    
    I hope this guide will help the people and that they will find it use-
    ful. Enjoy.

    /////II)GENERAL INFORMATION[GRIFM]/////
    ///////////////////////////////////////
    
    This guide will be using abbreviations. Following up is a short list
    on what abbreviations i will be using and what their meaning is so
    you won't get confused while reading through this Guide.
    
    B = Benjamin(Hero)
    K = Kaeli
    T = Tristam
    P = Phoebe
    R = Reueben
    HP = Hit Points
    any% = any% is the Name of the run Category
    FT = Focus Tower
    
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////
    /////III)RULES FOR AN ANY% SPEEDRUN[RLFAS]/////
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    Q:How is the run timed?
    A:There are quite a few possibilities to time the run, I will list
      them right here.
    
        SDA-Timing:Start the timer when starting the Battle with Behemoth,
                   stop at the last hit on Dark King. This is the timing
                   we use at the moment.
        SRL-Timing:Start the timer after you put your name in, stop at the
                   last hit on Dark King. This is essentially the timing
                   that is used for races.
        J-Timing:  Start the timer when you power on your console, stop at
                   "The End".The Japanese Speedrunning Community almost
                   exclusively uses this kind of timing.
    
    Like i said we use the "SDA-Timing" in our part of the community since
    the actions before the behemoth fight and after Dark King are not
    relevant to the run itself.
    
    Q:What is allowed in an any% Speedrun?
    A:Basically anything goes. You can fight as much as you like, you can
      grab whatever item you want to. The only goal is to finish the game
      as fast as possible.
    
    Q:How will my run get verified?
    A:You need to have a recorded video file or an uninterrupted streaming
      file. Otherwise we will not be sure if you actually got the time
      you claim you got.
      (NOTE:You do not need somebody to verify your run anywhere but its always
      a good idea to have some kind of proof about your work).

    //////////////////////////////////////
    /////IV)SETTING UP THE RUN[STPTR]/////
    //////////////////////////////////////
    
    There is a glitch that exist in Mystic Quest that you can not avoid. We
    call it the Resistance Glitch and use it to our advantage.
    Here is how it works:
    Once you save your game, reset and reload it your secondary Characters
    equipment of the save file you loaded will carry over to your other secondary
    Characters you might throughout the journey!
    
    What does that mean? Let's give you an example. If you get Phoebe before the
    Doom Castle sequence, she will have the [STEEL HELM],[MYSTIC ROBE],
    [ETHER SHIELD] and [MAGIC RING] equipped. Now we save our game, load the file
    where we have Phoebe. Reset again and start a new game and play up until the 
    point where Kaeli joins you. If you now go to armor you wont see any 
    difference, she still has the [RELICA ARMOR] and [MAGIC RING] only.
    
    BUT if you go to the Status option in the Menu, you now can see that she is
    resistant against a whole bunch of stuff and her Attack is higher than it 
    should be. Why? Well the game thinks that she has the Equipment of Phoebe 
    since that was the last save file that you loaded, and all other characters 
    will have the same "Equipment" and resistances that will join you throughout 
    your journey!
    
    So before starting a speedrun make sure that you loaded a file with the last
    Phoebe, then reset and start a new game so every Character is resistant against
    Blizzard,Aero,Sleep,Bla,Bla and gets a nice Attack/Magic boost!
    
    Other than that pretty much insert the Cart, turn on the console and gogogo!
    
    ////////////////////////////////////////////////
    /////V)GLITCHES USED IN THE SPEEDRUN[GLTCH]/////
    ////////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    Before we start this Walkthrough I would like to take a minute to explain
    a couple of glitches that will be used throughout the Speedrun. I will
    link videos to the aforementioned glitches for better explanation since
    it might not be easy to understand at first, but I will do my best.
    
    Basically, there is only 3 very important glitches that we are going to
    use and 2 of them we are going to used combined in the run.
    
    I will also mention them in the Walkthrough as we go along of course.
    
    1)Duplicate Cure Potions/Heal Potions/Refreshers/Seeds
    ------------------------------------------------------
    This one is the most simple glitch to use and we only want to duplicate
    Seeds at the start of the game in Bone Dungeon/Wintry Cave since we will
    use a better glitch shortly after the Ice Pyramid.
    
    The way it works is very simple. You enter a battle, have your partner
    on Manual so you can input commands for him/her.
    From here, select to use the Item you want to duplicate with Benjamin
    and confirm that you want to use it.
    You are now on your partner. Cancel out everything and run away. The
    game will give you +1 after the battle of the item you selected to use!
    
    Why? Simple you only get 3 Seeds up until you get past the Ice Pyramid,
    we will use this to duplicate at least 2, if you are not experienced
    maybe even 3 or 4! You should combine this glitch either with not
    favorable formations you are encountering or battles you would run away
    from anyways. (Such as 3 Enemy Encounters in Bone Dungeon).
    
    2)Buying 0 of an Item
    ---------------------
    Well as you know, there is multiple Shops in the game for the consumable
    Items in this game. Guess what? You can actually buy 0 of the Items for
    0 Gold. How is this useful? Well if you use the 0 of the item, you get
    255 out of it! It comes with a little sideeffect though, which brings us
    to glitch number 3.
    
    3)Underflowing Item Slots
    -------------------------
    As a result of using 0 of an Item, you will underflow the slot to the
    right of it, flowing it to the Item Value before that. What does that
    mean? I will give you an example.
    
    Slot 1 has 0 Seeds and you have 5 Cure Potions in Slot 2.
    You use the 0 Seeds. What happens now is that the 5 Cure Potions will
    transform into 5 Sky Coins!(The item before Cure Potions in the list,
    bottom right usually)
    Unfortunatley these Sky Coins are "fake", they dont work as the Sky
    Coin you usually get. You can use them, but they do nothing or will
    softlock the game if you are in Battle. Why you want to have them
    in your inventory though is to "block" the Slot for Cure Potions,
    since that will enable us to continue the underflow even further.
    
    If you have Seeds, Sky Coins, Refreshers and Heal Potions in Row 1,
    you notice that Cure Potions wont fit anymore. So if you go buy some,
    where will it put them? It will put them in Slot 5, which will affect
    the all of your Key Items depending on how much Cure Potions you find/buy!
    
    This can be used to buy 19 Cure Potions and instantly get the (REAL) Sun Coin
    Sky Coin and Mobius Crest! INCREDIBLE! You can do this as soon as you hit
    Fireburg too, so you can actually skip the entire Fireburg section!
    
    Another way to underflow your Key Item section is using 0 of an item
    in your 4th Slot. This will basically do the same we did with the Fake
    Sky Coins earlier but it will affect all of your Key Items and advance
    the value for them by one! This will come in handy once in the speedrun
    and I will mention it when we will get there, it is very finicky since
    you can softlock very easily if you underflow the wrong items in your
    inventory but we will try to avoid it.
    
    4)Videos for clarification
    --------------------------
    Here are Videos to clarify what I was talking about in the earlier
    paragraphs:
    
    Duplication of Items:
    
    Buying 0 of an Item + underflowing the Slot to the right:
    
    Changing Key Items with Underflowing:

    /////////////////////////////////
    
    Well here we go, I hope this can be of help, if further questions arise while
    reading this feel free to message me and help me out in making this as help-
    ful as possible. Remember that I will use the Resistance glitch with Phoebe
    that joins you before entering Doom Castle, if you haven't read Section
    IV) of this Guide yet, you might want to do so.
    
    ====================================================================
    NOTE: Whenever you enter a new area that has monsters im gonna list=
          them right away in this way:                                 =
                                                                       =
    ENEMIES:Enemy A(HP-Value/Weakness),Enemy B(...),....      =
    ====================================================================
    
    1)HILL OF DESTINY[HLODT]
    ========================
    
    All you have to do here is mash through the text and start the fight with:
    ===========================================================================
    BOSS:Behemoth                                                             =
    HP:80                                                                     =
    WEAKNESS:-                                                                =
    DAMAGE:25(Sword)/75(Critical)                                             =
    STRATEGY:Just attack with B and hope for the best. For an optimal start of=
             the run it should be obvious that you want to have 1 crit + 1 hit=
             since that costs the least time.                                 =
    ===========================================================================
    Once this is taken care of, mash through more text and go on with the game.
    
    You will be automatically send to the next area that you only have to enter.
    
    Before entering make sure you go into the menu(Start-Button) and change "Life 
    Indicate" to FIGURE and "Message Speed" to 1 under Customize(second from below
    in the mainmenu).
    
    2)LEVEL FOREST[LVLFT]
    =====================
    
    Do not bother talking to the old man walking into the forest, he is not
    relevant in any way. Just walk up and go right, jump over the old man and
    push the rock out of the way. You will get the "Tree Waker" for your efforts.
    Immediatly exit the Level Forest to the right.
    
    On the world map go to the right once and enter:
    
    3)FORESTA[FRSTA]
    ================
    
    Once you enter Foresta, go into the house on the left and talk to Kaeli.
    She will join your party.(If you HP is below 20 it is a good idea to heal
    Benjamin with Kaeli's Life Spell right here).
    Afterwards leave the house, go to the top right corner of foresta and jump
    over the pond to get to the back of the Treehouse and get access to the chest
    there which contains the "CURE" Spell for Benjamin. Afterwards leave Foresta
    and move back to the Level Forest.
    
    4)LEVEL FOREST REVISITED[LVLFR]
    ===============================
    ENEMIES:Brownie(50 HP),Slime(55 HP/Bombs)
    
    You enter the Forest and Kaeli will automatically cut down a tree for you so
    you can actually move through this Forest. Go 2 tiles up to fight your first
    battle on the way. Leave Kaeli on auto, she will kill enemies with one swing
    of her Axe if she does not miss, Benjamin on the other hand needs a crit for
    that to happen.Once Benjamin dies or put an enemy into critical HP, remember
    to put Kaeli on manual and attack with her that way since she will either
    attack the almost dead enemy or revive Benjamin with her life spell.
    
    After you got rid of the first battle, move little ways northeast for the
    second one(same strategy applies).
    
    Move directly North from here to engage in another fight(put Kaeli on "Manual"
    beforehand).
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Minotaur                                                               =
    HP:240                                                                      =
    WEAKNESS:-                                                                  =
    DAMAGE:-(not needed)                                                        =
    STRATEGY:Attack with Benjamin and target the Life Spell on the Minotaur with=
             Kaeli. He should die in one hit unless it misses.                  =
    =============================================================================
    
    You want to kill Minotaur at around the 3:00 Minute mark on your timer so you
    know you are on decent pace.
    After this exhausting fight, Kaeli will leave the party and give you the Axe.
    Leave the Forest to the north.
    
    On the World Map, move 2 times up and enter the next Cave.
    
    5)SAND TEMPLE[SDTMP]
    ====================
    
    I don't know why i made this a section, you need to open the Treasure Chest
    at the end of the Dungeon which is empty and Tristam will join you.
    
    After Tristam joined you move up one time on the World Map and enter Bone
    Dungeon.
    
    6)BONE DUNGEON[BNDNG]
    =====================
    ENEMIES:Sand Worm(140HP/Axe+Earth),Skeleton(120HP/Cure+Earth),Gorgon(150HP),
            Minotaur Zombie(190HP/Cure), Basilisk(90HP)
    
    From the start of the Dungeon move straight up on the "Quicksand" and jump over
    the Chest to get to the next room. In here jump over the Turtle Shells, move 
    down into the water and go left through the Skeleton. Tristam will sell you 
    bombs here, just mash through everything and you should be good. 
    On a screen transition be sure to put Tristam into "Auto" before 
    entering the third room.
    In the third room move up and now choose either one of the Worms on the left to
    fight and the Skeleton afterwards. You can kill these with Bombs/Auto but be 
    sure it is only 1 or 2 enemies, if it is 3 you may want to run and reengage 
    since that changes the Battle Formation. Afterwards move on to the next room.
    Here go right and up and fight the Skeleton(same strategy as before), bomb the
    Skeleton way and go left and up and fight the Behemoth and Skeleton.Now bomb
    the next Skeleton way and move through to fight a Minotaur. For Minotaur's you
    want to use a slightly different strategy in the battle. If it is only a single
    Minotaur, put Tristam on Manual and Defend Benjamin with him, since he is not
    able to kill Minotaurs in one shot, if it is 2 enemies you can leave him on
    Auto, if it is 3 you might want to run and reengage.
    Now move down and enter the final room before the boss room. Fight the Skeleton
    and move north through the Skeleton way and grab the Chest with the [SEEDS]
    in it.
    [NOTE: Once you get these SEEDS, you want to duplicate at least 2 of them for
    later usage. I recommend doing it in unfavorable Battles such as 3 Enemy
    formations. If you are not familiar with the Duplication Glitch, check out
    the Glitches section in this Guide.]
    This is rather important for later. Now go back and exit left in the Skeleton 
    way.
    Fight the Skeleton and Minotaur, then jump over the quicksand before the last
    Minotaur in this gauntlet. Now you can either pickup the [QUAKE] spell here, 
    which I recommend, in the North room or just continue and fight the last 
    Minotaur without picking it up, the [QUAKE]-Spell is not essential to the run 
    but it helps.
    Before fighting the Boss be sure to heal up to full HP.
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Flamerus Rex                                                           =
    HP:2200                                                                     =
    WEAKNESS:Cure                                                               =
    DAMAGE:Benjamin:192 Bombs,214 Quake,250 Cure                                =
           (Level 4)                                                            =
           Tristam:132 Ninja Star(324 Critical Hit)                             =
    STRATEGY:Leave Tristam on "Auto" and cast Cure on Rex with Benjamin as much =
             as you can. Once Tristam falls below 1/2HP, heal him manually with =
             the Life-Spell. You are hoping for Tristam to critical hit him for =
             massive damage here. If you picked up the Quake Spell you got one  =
             Spellcharge for that too so use it. Otherwise just go with bombs.  =
             The biggest thing to watch out for is his "Rip-Earth" Attack which =
             will damage both your characters and the more HP he loses, the     =
             more he will use this attack. You should be able to finish him     =
             reliably nontheless but this Boss can be one of the big time losses=
             of the run, so if you are aiming for a really good time make sure  =
             you finish him between 8:45-9:15 on your timer.                    =
                                                                                =
    ALTERNATIVE:Since the Duplication Glitch was found, you can actually        =
                give Benjamin a Seed before the fight and he will have 6 White  =
                casts for Cure, meaning if every Cure hits, he will deal 1500   =
                Damage to Rex, meaning Tristam has to deal a total of 700 damage=
                to the Rex (2 crits and 1 normal hit) and can then defend       =
                Benjamin until the Rex is defeated. This is a little safer than =
                what we used to do, overall the "go all out" strategy is ideally=
                still faster though.                                            =
    =============================================================================
    
    After the fight you get a heal and the Crystal shines for you. Great! Be sure to
    pickup the [SAND COIN] in right Treasure Chests and there are [EXPLOSIVES] in 
    the upper left chests if you feel you dont have enough bombs(you should though).
    Make sure when you exit through the dungeon to pick up the [STEEL SHIELD] in the
    second room of the dungeon north of the Turtle Shells(bomb the Skeleton Head to
    get access to it).
    Once you are back in the first room, OPEN THE CHEST WITH THE 3 [CURE POTIONS]!
    This will be part of a setup for a glitch later. Jump over the Chest,hug the
    left side of the wall,jump into  the Quicksand and press left and repeat until 
    you reach the exit.
    
    Now move back to Foresta.
    
    7)FORESTA REVISITED[FRSTR]
    ==========================
    
    Make sure to deliver the Elixir to Kaeli and you can go back on your way to
    Focus Tower.
    
    8)FOCUS TOWER SEQUENCE ONE[FTRS1]
    =================================
    
    Go little ways North and when you first see the Old Man, you can go left 
    through a secret passage! Do not talk to the Old Man, it is not required
    to advance the plot.
    Continue North past him into the Door.
    Go right and pickup the [EXPLOSIVES] in the chests,then open the the yellow door
    with the [SAND COIN] you aquired beforehand. Go into the door in the North.
    In 2F you can pickup the [FIRE]-Spell if you want which will help greatly in the
    upcoming dungeons(go left and down to the chest).
    After you got that exit the Tower in the North.
    
    [NOTE: If you are familiar with this speedrun, it is not necessary to pickup the
    Fire Spell at all, I still recommend doing it if you are new to the game since
    it will provide you with more options to kill enemies in the upcoming dungeons.]
    
    On the World Map move right and up into Libra Temple
    
    9)LIBRA TEMPLE SEQUENCE ONE[LTMP1]
    ==================================
    
    Just pickup the [EXPLOSIVES] and talk to Phoebe here, you can exit afterwards.
    Move right three times to enter Aquaria.
    
    10)AQUARIA SEQUENCE ONE[AQRI1]
    ==============================
    
    After entering just move left all the way to Phoebe's House, mash through the
    little dialogue and exit Aquaria again.
    Move right and up on the World Map.
    
    11)WINTRY CAVE[WNTCV]
    =====================
    ENEMIES:Scorpion(210HP/Fire),Edgehog(220HP/Fire),Giant Toad(180HP),
            Land Worm(265HP/Axe,Earth),Land Turtle(270HP/Axe,Wind,Ice,Thunder),
            Centaur(230HP),Sparna(260HP/Projectile)
    
    Once you enter the Dungeon, go right along the path and defeat the Scorpions
    and the Edgehogs that are in the way. Note that if there are three enemies of
    one kind, you can leave Phoebe on auto and she will use FIRE on all of them, if
    there are two kinds of enemies in the battle you will have to MANUALLY use fire
    on all of them for the kill.
    Now there is the first tricky enemy in the way, the Landworm. If you picked up
    Quake earlier you can leave Phoebe on Auto if there is a Edgehog with them or
    Defend with her if its just two of them and use Quake to get a nice and easy
    kill on them.
    Move along and you will fall down and Phoebe will give you the Claw and now have
    the BOW OF GRACE as Weapon.Move west and once you hit the wall down.
    Eliminate the Edgehogs, climb up the slope with the claw, fight the Scorpions,
    climb up further and fight the Edgehogs. If the Scorpions have a Giant Toad with
    them just attack it with Benjamin and FIRE(All) with Phoebe.
    Now bomb the door and go through it to 2F.
    
    Fight the Edgehogs on the left side here,then move up and fight the topleft Land
    worms. They either come as Landworm x3 or Landworm x2 + Edgehog.
    You will come across one more of these later, you either have to have Phoebe
    attack a Landworm manually or use a single target Fire and use Quake with
    Benjamin. We are not fighting the Turtles next to it to save up a little on
    Thunders in this dungeon.
    Now move up and fight the Centaurs. Use Thunder(All) on these MANUALLY and 
    hope that your attack with the Bomb goes off before they can confuse Benjamin.
    Move right now and fight the next Land Turtle,Centaur and Edgehog right next to
    that one.
    Afterwards move Northeast, fight the Land Worm and Edgehog there and then move
    down the stairs to the next room.
    In 3F fight the Land Turtle(use Thunder(All) manually if Centaur is with them),
    move down right and fight the Sparna, use a Seed, then the Land Turtle and 
    Centuar.(Thunder(All) manually and Bombs for the Sparna).
    
    After the Centaur move North for the next Boss.

           Phoebe:318 Bow of Grace(686 Critical Hit).                           =
    STRATEGY:Start out by throwing Bombs and manually casting Thunder on all    =
             enemies to get rid of the Sparna's rather quick.                   =
             After that just go all out with Normal Attacks, if Benjamin dies it=
             is not a big deal Phoebe will kill him without dying. The only     =
             thing you need to heal is if Phoebe gets blinded by him.           =
    =============================================================================
             
    Pick up the [LIBRA CREST] and make your way out just the way you came in!
    Move down, left,down,left and left to go to the Libra Temple once more.
    
    At this point you SHOULD have 2 Wizard Spell Charges on Phoebe left and still
    have 3 Seeds in your inventory if you duped two of them in earlier fights.
    
    12)LIBRA TEMPLE SEQUENCE TWO[LTMP2]
    ===================================
    Since you have the LIBRA CREST now, you can use the teleporter in this Temple.
    On the other side go north and talk to the Old Man to get the [WAKEWATER] and
    now return to Aquaria.
    
    13)AQUARIA SQUENCE TWO[AQRI2]
    =============================
    You will get a cutscene here with the Wakewater, afterwards go to the INN
    (the building on the right) and rest up there to refresh your magic. Leave
    the town and go up on the world map once.
    
    14)FALLS BASIN[FLSBS]
    =====================
    ENEMIES:Desert Hag(280HP/Fire),Lamia(300HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder)
    
    Before you move make sure you are healed up to full.
    Now for the first cool trick of the run. Push the first pillar north and left
    through the passage until you hit the wall, then make a bridge with it by 
    pushing it one more tile to the north. Go through the passage north of here and
    fight the Desert Hag(leave Phoebe on Auto for a quick kill).
    Go south, jump over the bridge you created and fight the next Desert Hag.Go
    down the stairs and fight the Lamia. If it is only 2 Lamia's you can leave
    Phoebe on Auto, she will cast Thunder, if it is 2 Lamia's and a Desert Hag
    make sure to manually cast Thunder on all of them and attack with Bombs.
    Now push the pillar you just "freed" in between the gap so you create another
    Bridge, jump over it and fight the next Lamia to "free" another pillar.
    Now for the sequence break in this dungeon.
    
    Push the pillar you just "freed" 4 tiles left, 1 tile up,2 tiles left again and
    then 5 tiles up. Push the pillar below that 4 tiles up,then push the other
    pillar one tile right in the corner, then the other one up and 2 right.
    Go back to the first pillar you used to create a bridge.
    Push it 1 tile right, 1 tile down and 9 tiles right. Now go back to where you
    fought the last Lamia, go up the stairs, go left and now jump over 
    all the pillars to avoid the other 2 enemies that are in this area and
    go straight to the boss!
    
    Before fighting the boss make sure to pickup the [HEAL]-Spell that is in the
    Chest left from it. Use a Seed on Phoebe to maximize her Wizard Spell Charges
    again and go into the next fight.
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Snow Crab                                                              =
    HP:3000                                                                     =
    WEAKNESS:Axe                                                                =
    DAMAGE:Benjamin: 202 Bombs, 242 Axe                                         =
           (Level 8)                                                            =
           Phoebe:318 Bow of Grace,520 Thunder                                  =
    STRATEGY:Start out by attacking with Bombs with Benjamin and using Fire(All)=
             with Phoebe to finish off the Desert Hags.                         =
             After this first Round, you have 5 Thunders to throw at Snow Crab, =
             which means you will deal a total of 2600 damage with that to it,  =
             meaning in 5 turns Benjamin only has to deal roughly 400 damage.   =
             You can do this with Bombs or the Axe, the Axe is faster animation-=
             wise but can miss, its your call.                                  =
             If you wanna play it safe revive Benjamin and heal accordingly,    =
             Snow Crab can confuse a party member which can result in desastrous=
             outcomes, but generally you should be able to get past him without =
             too many issues.                                                   =
    =============================================================================
    
    After your victory Phoebe will give you the [JUMBO BOMB] which will be really
    useful in the next dungeon! Bomb the door and exit. Go north twice and enter
    the next dungeon.
    
    15)ICE PYRAMID[ICPYD]
    =====================
    ENEMIES:Desert Hag(280HP/Fire),Lamia(300HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Mage(330HP/Fire),
            Phanquid(400HP/Fire),Sphinx(360HP),Stoney Roost(350HP/Projectile),
            Gather(360HP/Bomb,Wind,Ice,Thunder),Freezer Crab(410HP/Axe)
    
    [IMPORTANT NOTE: KEEP 1 SEED UNTIL YOU OPEN THE CHEST WITH THE HEAL POTIONS,
    OTHERWISE YOU WILL HAVE TO IMPROVISE LATER ON A GLITCH]
    
    Go to the glowing statue and Phoebe says she can see a switch.Hit it by using
    the Sword on it. Afterwards heal up both Characters with Cure from Phoebe and 
    use the second SEED on her to refill her magic. Make sure to switch back to 
    bombs after you hit the switch for the upcoming fights. 
    
    Now this dungeon is a pain for speedrunning since all the enemies are invisible
    here so I am gonna try to be as detailed as possible with the explanation on 
    how to move through here so bear with me if this is gonna be 
    a great wall of text.
    
    Move through the door you just unlocked until you reappear on the otherside,
    go left, hug the wall downways, go left to the second corridor.
    
    Here there are 2 chests, open the RIGHT one to get [REFRESHER]x3 as further
    setup for a glitch later on.
    
    From here move up.
    At the end to the right there are Lamia's waiting for you, deal with them as
    usual.
    In this little square there are enemies on every corner, so watch out for that, 
    you want to fight the Desert Hag thats in the Northeast corner at the 
    intersection(Bomb/Auto to get rid of them).
    Move right into the tight corridor and fight the next Lamia.
    Follow the path until you hit the door which is blocked by some Mages.
    If it is 3 Mages, great you can just Bomb/Auto them. If they have a Lamia at 
    their side, you need to cast Thunder with Phoebe manually and hit them with
    Bombs.
    Onward to 2F.
    
    Here go left into the next small corridor. There are Lamia's waiting for you at
    the "entrance" of the corridor and Mages inbetween. A Phanquid is blocking the
    entrance to 3F, if he is alone just Defend with Phoebe and throw bombs at him,
    if he has a Sphinx at his side you need to cast Life/Fire on the Sphinx with 
    Phoebe. Onward to 3F.
    
    Go down the right path.You will first have to fight a Desert Hag and afterwards
    you will come across your first Stoney Roost enemy. These can either appear with
    2 of their kind and a Mage or with 3 of their kind. 
    Just leave Phoebe on auto and throw bombs in round one and defend with Phoebe 
    in round 2 and finish them off with bombs.
    (NOTE:If Benjamin or Phoebe fall below 1/2HP which can happen at this point,heal
     that by curing them with Phoebe after battles.)
    Move along to the right and fight the Gathers. These are quite easily dealt
    with since they are weak against bombs. Just throw bombs and defend with Phoebe.
    The next enemy on the path is a Freezer Crab, which either comes with a Gather
    or alone. If its alone, Bomb/Defend, if it has company,
    use Bomb/Attack on Freezer Crab manually with Phoebe to kill it fast.
    Jump over the chest and fight the next pair of Gathers and then press the switch
    to open a passage on the left.
    Backtrack to where you entered 3F and go left this time around.
    Fight the Desert Hag,Stoney Roost,Gather,Freezer Crab and Desert Hag in the thin
    Corridor, then move right to fight one more Stoney Roost and go up and left from
    there.
    Onward to 4F.
    
    Move left from the entrance, fight the Mages and then move around until you see
    the door to 5F. Before trying to enter it check your Magic, you should use the
    last SEED on Phoebe either here if you have 0 Wizard Spells left or after
    the next Battle if you have 1 Wizard spell left. Either way a Sphinx is blocking
    the entrance that might have a Gather their side. In that case use Thunder(All)
    manually with Phoebe and attack with Bombs, if its only 2 Sphinx you might
    consider casting Life on one with Phoebe.
    Onward to 5F.
    
    Go straight and fall down the pit. I'm serious do it. You will land back in 4F
    where you will want to be picking up two very important items.
    First off, open the chests to the left here for [HEAL POTIONS]x3. This means
    that your first row in your inventory should now look something like this:
    Seed / Cure Potion / Refresher / Heal Potions. If that is the case, you have
    the perfect setup for a glitch we are going to use in Fireburg.
    Jump over both chests to the left and move up immediatley after the second jump
    to fight some more Gathers. If they have a Stoney Roost with them, just leave 
    Phoebe on Auto so she attacks the Roost and gets rid of it. Press the switch 
    that is up ahead and move back around. On the right side line yourself up with
    the Magical Chest and go up from there. Before you hit the Brown Chest, you
    will either fight Sphinx x2 or Sphinx x2 and a Gather. Deal with them
    accordingly, then jump over the chest and now pickup the Red Chest which gives
    you the [NOBLE ARMOR], which is what you came here for!
    It gives you resistance to Blizzard, which is why we came here in the first 
    place. Move back around to reach 5F once more.
    
    On 5F now go right and fight the Stooney Roosts that are in the way. BE CAREFUL
    TO NOT SLIP AND FALL OFF HERE, IT CAN HAPPEN! Follow the path until you have
    to fight Gathers again. You can leave Phoebe on Auto either way, since she will
    just Thunder(All) if its 3 Gathers. Now bomb the cracked ice tile in the middle
    and fall down all the way until you get to a small square that has a couple of
    switches in it. press the one to the North where you landed and fall down again.
    
    In B1 try moving down to trigger a Lamia battle. After victory move down and
    pickup the [KNIGHT SWORD]!Jump over the chest,move down the stairs to the bottom
    right and go all the way to the topleft corner of the room which is blocked by
    yet another Lamia.
    (NOTE:If you only have 2 Thunders before this fight, which can rarely happen if
    you got bad encounter luck throughout the dungeon, Attack the Desert Hag with
    the Knight Sword you just got and use Bow of Grace with Phoebe on the Lamia's,
    so you have 2 Thunders left for the upcoming 2 fights.)
    
    Move through the door after the battle and fight the 2 Sphinx battles that are
    blocking the way.Move straight north and be careful not to slip down here, you
    can infact fall down here. Once you reached the end of the path, go right and
    north on the snake path and make your way to the Boss of this Dungeon.
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Ice Golem                                                              =
    HP:6500                                                                     =
    WEAKNESS:FIRE                                                               =
    DAMAGE:Benjamin:402 Jumbo Bombs, 432 Fire(Claw)                             =
           (Level 11)                                                           =
           Phoebe:606 Fire                                                      =
    STRATEGY:Start out by casting FIRE manually with both your characters and go=
             from there. If anyone of your characters falls below 1/2HP, heal   =
             with Phoebe(put her on Auto).Make sure to equip the Claw on        =
             Benjamin if you are using FIRE.                                    =
             This is the first boss that can randomly be faster than Phoebe, so =
             that is something to watch out for too.                            =
             After you used up all your FIREs with Benjamin, switch to Jumbo    =
             Bombs.                                                             =
             If you pay enough attention to your HP you will have an easy time  =
             with this fight since you picked up the NOBLE ARMOR beforehand.    =
    =============================================================================
    
    Afterwards you get another shining Crystal and a free heal. Phoebe leaves the
    party now. DO NOT FORGET TO PICKUP THE [RIVER COIN] IN THE CHEST!
    Alright now for escaping this dungeon. Fall down the hole BELOW the crystal,
    then move 1 tile right and fall down the next time. You are now back on 4F
    where you picked up the Noble Armor, from here pretty much go out the way you
    came in.
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE:If you are below 10 Bombs now, make sure to pickup the left
                   chest at the end of the long corridor in 1F since it will now
                   contain [EXPLOSIVE] instead of [ARROWS].
    
    Back on the World Map, move two down, 1 right, 1 down, 2 left and 1 up. You
    should now be standing on the only Battlefield you will ever have to clear
    in the run, it is well worth it though.
    
    16)EXIT BATTLEFIELD[EXBTL]
    ==========================
    
    You can either engage a single Phanquid here or a Phanquid + Sphinx. If its the
    later just run away and reenter the battlefield,use bombs on the single
    Phanquid(thats why you want to have > 10 bombs before this).
    After you cleared the Battlefield you will receive the almighty [EXIT]-Spell.
    
    Now move left and down and enter the Focus Tower for the second time.
    
    17)FOCUS TOWER SEQUENCE TWO[FTRS2]
    ==================================
    
    Move down the stairs on the right, ignore the Old Man and move the statue right
    next to pillar in the southwest. Use [EXIT] once you have done that.
    
    Return to the Exit Battlefield and move down from there and enter the Focus
    Tower from the lower half of it.
    Move down the stairs and open the next door here with the RIVER COIN and go up
    the stairs past it.
    Jump over the statue you just pushed here, go left and exit the tower.
    
    [NOTE: If you still have Seeds in your inventory, use them now so the first
    spot in your inventory is empty.]
    
    Move north on the world map until you reach Fireburg and enter it.
    
    18)FIREBURG[FREBG]
    ==================
    
    Here is where our glitchy adventure begins. If you set yourself up with
    collecting items like I told you to, the first row of your inventory will
    look like this:
    Empty / Cure Potionsx3 / Refreshersx3 / Heal Potionsx3 .
    
    Now go to the Inn, the first building when you move North from the entrance.
    The boy on the right here sells Seeds. Talk to him and buy 0 from him.
    No I am not lying, buy 0 Seeds. Once you did that it will dispay 0 Seeds in
    your first slot in your inventory. Use one and it will say 99, so we
    successfully stocked up on Seeds for the rest of the run.
    Additionally, it will transform the Cure Potions to the right into Sky Coins!
    They don't do anything and I recommend not touching them for the rest of the
    run, but this enables us to underflow our inventory even further.
    The lady at the table left from the boy that sells Seeds sells you Cure
    Potions. Since you do not have any of them, she wont say you already have
    enough, but where does the game pack them when your first row is full? Well
    it will try to pack them one slot to the right, which will essentially affect
    all of our Key Items depending on how much we buy!
    
    What we want to do now is buy 19 Cure Potions. The game will hand us a
    Mobius Crest, Sun Coin and Sky Coin! It will delete all the other Key Items
    we had before but that is not a big issue since we dont need them anymore.
    
    Once you are done with that, exit out of Fireburg and return to the Focus
    Tower.
    
    19)FOCUS TOWER SEQUENCE THREE[FTRS3]
    ====================================
    
    Make your way down and use the SUN COIN to open the rightmost door this time,
    make sure to ignore the Old Man as usual and dont go down the set of stairs
    that is here and exit the tower. Also pickup [EXPLOSIVES] out of the chest
    before the Sand Coin door, you are gonna need them later on!
    
    On the World Map go right and enter Rope Bridge.
    
    [SIDENOTE: Since we have never done the Lava Dome, we will stay cloudy here
    for the rest of the game :). I will try my best to not leave out world map
    navigation.]
    
    20)ROPE BRIDGE[RPBRD]
    =====================
    
    Once you go right enough you will get thrown into a little cutscene, mash
    through the text and use EXIT on the fight you get thrown in.
    Afterwards Tristam will rejoin you. Use EXIT and move right on the Map and
    enter the Alive Forest.
    
    21)ALIVE FOREST[AVFRS]
    ======================
    ENEMIES:Mummy(685HP/Cure,Wind,Ice,Thunder),Spector(690HP/Projectile,Cure,Wind)
    
    Go southeast and cut the Tree's that are blocking your path here and fight
    the Mummies in your way on the Bridge. Your best bet for this fight is to
    have Tristam defend since he cant do much against Mummies and you cast Exit
    on every single one of them.
    Continue on the Bridge and fight the Spector on the other end of it. You can
    set Tristam to Auto in these fights since he can oneshot Spectors and Exit
    with Benjamin, preferably use Exit on Mummies first if there is one.
    Now go to the southeast corner and cut right through the Tree's until you
    get into another fight with Spectors and see a Tree with a beard.
    Talk to the Tree once and Tristam will tell you that Kaeli might be able to
    have a little talk with him. Use EXIT and return to Aquaria through the
    Focus Tower.
    
    22)AQUARIA SEQUENCE THREE[AQRI3]
    ================================
    
    First of all you need to go into the Water here and visit Spencer which is
    on the left below Phoebe's House in a deep tunnel. Just walk straight down
    the path and you will reach him. After a little talk Tristam will leave
    your party but give you the mighty [DRAGON CLAW]. Phoebe will come in
    and destroy the tunnel. Great work... use EXIT afterwards and reenter
    Aquaria.
    
    Now visit Phoebe's House on the left and talk to Kaeli who is lying in the
    bed here. She will join your party and she got a decent upgrade since last
    time you had her in the party.
    
    On your retruntrip through the Focus Tower make sure to once again pickup
    some [EXPLOSIVES], this should be the second time you pick them up in three
    trips.
    
    Once you left Focus Tower, go right back in and make your way down the set
    of stairs you kept passing that are close to the Old Man.
    
    Down here is a fight that has a Ninja/Minotaur and either an Iflyte or
    Chimera. Use Exit and Aero(Single) with Kaeli, past it you will find the
    Aero spell for yourself. Exit out from here.
    
    Return to the Alive Forest and make your way back to the Tree and talk to
    it. Now you can enter it and clean out the Monsters that found a home inside
    of it.
    
    NOTE:You can now use Aero(all)/Aero(all) to kill Mummies/Spectors in one turn
         and even better, if there is only 2 enemies Kaeli can one shot these 2 
         with one Aero(all)! You just have to keep in mind that you need to do 
         this MANUALLY with her.
    
    23)GIANT TREE[GNTTR]
    ====================
    ENEMIES:Mummy(685HP/Cure,Wind,Ice,Thunder),Live Oak(710HP/Axe,Fire),
            Snipion(690HP/Fire),Leech(745HP/Axe,Wind,Earth),Ooze(750HP/Bombs),
            Mad Toad(740HP/Ice),Skuldier(750HP/Projectile,Cure,Wind)
    
    After entering move directly up into the first Mummy fight and then left into
    the Live Oak. For Live Oak fights you should put Kaeli on Auto and use Exit
    since Aero/Aero doesnt work too well on them.
    Move north past the Spector and go right when you can and fight the next Live
    Oak. Climb up the little slope and put the Dragon Claw to use and grapple your-
    self over south twice,then west,then north and finally east and enter the
    doormouth.
    
    Go southwest here and grapple yourself over the gap and fight the Live Oak and
    the Snipion that blocks the slope.You can use Exit/Auto on Snipions aswell.
    Climb up and use the Sword to open the closed mouth and go through the door.
    On the other side fight the left Leeches and grapple over to the left after
    defeating them. For Leeches, if there are 2 Kaeli can kill them with one Aero,
    if there are 3 you can either Aero(All) with both or Exit and fight them
    with the Axe with Kaeli. Both versions have ups and downs, its preference of
    how you want to approach this section pretty much.
    After you grappled over, move little ways down and right from there and fight
    the 3 Leech battles on the way, move up north and use the Sword to open the
    mouth and go in here.
    
    Starting in this room, Leeches can have an Ooze in their Battle Formation.
    These are pretty annyoing since they will reflect your magic back at you with
    full power so you want to avoid that! In case this happens just use Exit/Auto
    to get rid of the 2 Leeches and then Attack/Auto to kill the Ooze.
    Ooze's can also be petrified by the Dragon Claw, so that is a potential way
    to kill them instantly.
    
    Anyways go left now and fight 3 Leech Battles, after the third cut the Mushrooms
    to the north from here with the Axe and fight the Leech at the end of the path
    here. Use the Dragon Claw to climb up the slope and fall down to the left and
    fight two more Leech Battles before exiting south from there.
    
    Follow the path and fight the Mad Toad that is blocking the Vine. For Mad Toads
    you want to use Exit and MANUALLY attack with Kaeli, since sometimes she uses
    Aero on all which does not have a great effect on these. Fall down the Vine and
    move up from here use the Sword to open the mouth and go through.
    On the other side fight the Leech and Mad Toad.
    Climb up the slope and follow the path until you reach a closed mouth that is
    blocked by some more Leeches. Dispose of them and open the mouth and go through.
    
    Here go left and fight the Ooze. For two Oozes, use Bomb/Auto since they are
    weak against bombs and Kaeli will attack when she is on Auto.
    Move left and follow the path and fight the Skuldier. These are pretty much
    the same as Leeches, 2 can be killed with an Aero of Kaeli that you can cast
    manually.
    Ignore the first mouth on the right and enter the second one.
    
    Cut your way through the Mushrooms and on top cut your way to the right and 
    engage the Ooze waiting for you. If he has a Skuldier joining him, make sure to
    manually single target an Aero spell with Kaeli on him and use Bombs with
    Benjamin.
    Move along the path and fight 2 more Ooze battles, then exit through the door
    south.
    
    Here follow the only path you can fighting the Leech,Ooze,Skuldier,Leech and
    Ooze in the way. Now fight the Skuldier guarding the slope, climb up afterwards
    and open the mouth and go through. Here fight the right Skuldier and move north
    after the battle to the final slope you have to climb(You need to use White/Aero
    against 3 Skuldiers).
    Make sure to heal up and Seed up before the upcoming fight.

             on him and he should fall all too soon, just remember to cast it   =
             manually with Kaeli since she wont use it on Auto and instead      =
             attack with her Axe(which is weird since he is weak to Aero).      =
    =============================================================================
    
    After the fight talk to the closed mouth and the Tree will move you to the
    other end of the forest so you can continue on your journey.
    Before you Exit out of this tree though, we have to do a little preparation
    before we continue.
    
    Claw down where you fought Gidrah, fall down the right pit.
    Go into the door and claw down all the way and fall into the next pit.
    From here go to the bottom right door. In the next room cut the mushrooms
    immediatley to the left, going up when the fence is going up. At the end
    of this you will find a chest with the allmighty [METEOR] spell in it!
    
    Use EXIT move down,right,right and up on the World Map and enter Windia.
    
    24)WINDIA[WNDAA]
    ================
    
    We will have a couple of things to do here since we kind of skipped over the
    Fireburg section. If you asked yourself "why did we glitch the Mobius Crest
    earlier?", the reason is upcoming. Enter the second host northwest from the
    entrance and go to the basement. Here you can use a teleporter with the Mobius
    Crest to Fireburg, conveniently enough to the guy who gives you the
    [MEGA GRENADES]! Since we need them to finish the game, we NEED to get them.
    Use the teleporter again and then exit and reenter Windia.
    This time enter the house to the left and talk to the Lady in there. She will
    sell you the [CUPID LOCKET].
    Then enter the right house with the Chocobo(?) on top of it and talk to the
    Scientist Otto in here to hear that the Wind broke some kind of Machine and
    you have to stop that Wind now. Use EXIT after the conversation, move down,
    right and up on the World Map and enter Mount Gale.
    
    25)MOUNT GALE[MTGLE]
    ====================
    ENEMIES:Skuldier(750HP/Projectile,Cure,Wind),Water Hag(765HP/Fire),
            Vampire(780HP/Projectile,Wind)
    
    From the entrance move up the stairs north and the small stairs past that, then
    go right on the bridge(you can jump over the small gap). Follow the path from
    here and fight the Skuldier on top of the next set of stairs.
    For all fights in this area (which are not a whole lot) you can use Meteor/
    Aero(Single) and kill the enemies in one turn.
    Little ways north from her grapple over to the other side and jump over the gap.
    Move down and engage the Water Hag.
    
    Move down the next two set of stairs and on the right there is a Vampire fight
    you can engage.
    Move down the small stair set they blocked and the next one, move right from
    here and go up the stairs to fight a Skuldier.
    Another huge set of stairs later, there is a bridge to the left, jump over the
    gap and fight the Vampires here.
    
    After this get ready for a boss fight(heal and seed up).

             found, but the strategy here is very simple.                       =
             Start out the fight by using Meteor and single targeting a Vampire =
             with Aero. That will get rid of the Vampires. From here, leave     =
             Kaeli on Auto so she will heal you when you fall below 1/2 HP and  =
             have Benjamin cast Meteor. You will have to pray to not get hit    =
             by Doom Dance on Kaeli or get crit, most of the time you can come  =
             out victorious though.                                             =
    =============================================================================
    
    After the fight heal up and seed up and use EXIT and go back to Windia.
    Talk to Otto and he will fix the machine, use EXIT after the conversation and
    make your way north to Pazuzu's Tower.
    
    26)PAZUZU'S TOWER[PZUTR]
    ========================
    ENEMIES:Beholder(810HP/Bombs),Garuda(825HP/Projectile,Wind),Manticor(840HP/Ice)
            Chimera(870HP/Projectile,Wind),Sorcerer(840HP/Projectile,Wind),
            Thanatos(900HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Gargoyle(888HP/Projectile,Wind)
            Naga(870HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder)
    
    Once you enter you will notice the little girl on the little podest. Talk to
    her and she will return to Otto. Go right from there and fight the Beholder
    that is blocking the next door.
    Beholder's will reflect Magic back at you, so use Bombs since they are weak
    to it and leave Kaeli on Auto for the whole battle(if she gets blinded she
    will heal herself which is one less menu you have to do).
    Go straight up and fight the 3 Garuda battles that are ahead. Unfortunatley
    Kaeli can not just kill 2 Garuda's with 1 Aero, so you should stick to using
    Exit/Aero(Single) for these fights.
    
    After this hallway you reach 3F and will see Pazuzu waiting for you. Since
    this is the first time you will be talking to him he will flee from you no
    matter what, no early fighting him! He will randomly go to either 1F,2F,4F,5F
    or 6F from here. 7F is the top of the tower but he cant go there since you
    wouldnt be able to reach him there for a fight. For now continue left and fight
    the Beholder that is in the way. On the left we have Manticor, one of the most
    annoying enemies in the game. Kaeli can not kill them with Aero, even with
    single targeting it, so you want to use Exit with Benjamin and cast Life on
    these with Kaeli to get rid of them.
    Next up is a Chimera that is easily disposed of though with an Aero since it
    is weak to it. Enter the door these 3 groups were blocking and go up a
    hallway with 3 Beholder battles in it.
    
    On the other end of the hallway you will end up on 5F. You can not check for
    Pazuzu here yet though since there is too many monsters in the way.
    Fight the Garuda in the way and enter the next door you come across for
    another hallway, this time with 3 Manticors in it.
    
    On the other end of the hallway you will reach the top of the tower, 7F.
    Fight the Chimera to the left,this time it will come with a Sorcerer. You
    can kill Sorcerers by single targeting Aero on them with Kaeli or using Life
    on them, its your choice, personally I would cast Aero since Life can miss.
    To the left you can grapple over the next gap and engage the Thanatos that is
    waiting here. Use Exit on Thanatos and Life on the Manticor and afterwards
    kill the Beholder.Alternativley you can cast Exit on the Manticor and single
    target Aero on Thanatos, its your call.
    Go up the small stairset and fight the Sorcerers and Chimeras here. On the
    other end of this path, move south and fight the next Thanatos before
    descending through the stairs at the end of the path.
    
    You are now in 6F, fight the Naga and Sorcerer to the left. Naga's are weak
    to Aero, but you need to single Target it to kill them so use Exit/Aero.
    Open the Chest for the allmighty [FLARE]-Spell!
    
    NOTE:With the Flare Spell you can kill any 2 enemies that are left in Battle
         in this Tower EXCEPT Chimeras since they are strong against Fire! So
         from now on against 2 enemies use Flare and Defend Benjamin with Kaeli
         and against 3 Single Target an Aero Spell and use Flare to kill the rest.
    
    After getting Flare Bomb the blocked path that is close to the stairs you
    came through, go through and fight the Naga and Sorcerer.
    You will find yourself before one of the three switches you can push in this
    tower. If you get close to one of the Naga here you can see if Pazuzu is on
    this floor, if he is great,flip the switch with the Axe and skip ahead to the
    boss section. This is pretty much what you want for a speedrun since this is
    the earliest you can possibly fight him. If he is not, well still push the
    switch with the Axe since you want to block the way to 6F for him which you
    are doing by pushing this switch.
    
    Return to where you got Flare and go up the corridor and fight the Naga and
    Sorcerer and go down the set of stairs here.
    You are now on 5F and can see if Pazuzu is here. Whether he is or not you
    still have to continue down this path, so fight the Thanatos,Sorcerer,Garuda
    and Thanatos that is guarding the stairs. Go ahead down the stairs.
    
    You are now in 4F and can see if Pazuzu is here.Fight the Gargoyles and
    Chimera that is in your way. Now if Pazuzu was on 4F or 5F, go through the
    passage that is close to the stairs, fight the Sorcerer on the left,go up
    from there, fight the Chimera and flip the switch here so you block him
    from going below 4F(this will leave him stuck between 4F and 5F).
    If he is on 4F you now have to bomb the door and fight 2 Gargoyle battles
    and talk to him here so he goes to 5F.(So 4F has two extra battles compared
    to 5F Pazuzu).
    Go back the way you came all the way until 5F, go right here, fight the
    Thanatos,Garuda,Sorcerer and one more Thanatos before getting ready for the
    boss battle.
    
    Now if he wasnt on either 4F,5F or 6F, take the stairs directly south from
    where he can be in 4F to 3F, grapple over the gap and take the stairs down
    to 2F. Here fight the Naga on the right and go up and fight the Gargoyle and
    Thanatos before the switch. If Pazuzu is on 2F feel free to curse all you want
    this is the worst outcome possible. Either way push the switch here. If he
    is not on 2F you can just EXIT out the dungeon after pushing the switch and
    walk straight up to him. You can avoid the seemingly first Garuda fight in
    the way by magically walking through the pillar that is in the way. You will
    have to fight one that is blocking you at the end of the path though before
    you can fight Pazuzu.
    
    Now for what happens if he is on 2F and you push the switch, this is really
    annoying. 
    First of all go back to 4F and make sure to press the switch there since you
    want to lock him in between 2F and 3F.
    After pressing the switch, fight the Thanatos you avoided before
    that was next to the Naga back on 2F. Move down, fight the next Naga, go left
    from here and fight the 3 battles that are blocking your way here before you 
    bomb the blocked door and go through here. On the other side of this there is
    3 more enemies waiting for you, after fighting these you finally reach
    Pazuzu and... HE ESCAPES! AFTER ALL THIS TROUBLE? Yep. He goes to 3F now and
    you have to go there. Your best bet is to take the staircase on this
    floor back to 1F and grapple over and go to 3F this way. Once you reach
    him he will finally fight you.
    
    For all the people that do not understand this, I do not blame you this is
    rather difficult to explain and a pain to navigate through even for an
    experienced player like me. Im going to try to summarzie in a little
    table below what you have to do in order to corner Pazuzu depending on
    what Floor he is on.
    REMEMBER:This only applies if you talk to him on 3F for the first time, which
    in a speedrun setting you defenitley want to do.

             on Benjamin. Watch out though since Kaeli is sometimes faster than =
             Pazuzu, she will get to act before he releases his Psychshield in  =

    After the fight you release the fourth Crystal and get healed up. Since we
    glitched it into our inventory earlier, we dont need to take the [SKY COIN]
    from the Chest. Exit out of the dungeon and return to Windia for the final
    glitchiness we will use in our Speedrun.
    
    27)THE "USED TO BE" RUNAROUND[RNARD]
    ====================================
    
    Before we move on, your first row of your inventory should look like this:
    99 Seed / 3 Sky Coin / 3 Refresher / Empty .
    If your 4th slot still contains Heal Potions, use them up now.
    Walk into the INN and buy 0 Cure Potions on the right from the old lady.
    DO NOT USE THEM NOW.
    Go talk to Otto again so Reuben will rejoin your party. Once he is in your
    party, go into your inventory and use the 0 Potions in your 4th slot, thus
    changing your Key Items drastically by underflowing them. You will now
    have a [THUNDER ROCK] for free without running around and collecting it
    manually and can immediatley talk to Otto again! BUT AGAIN, YOU NEED TO
    DO THIS AFTER YOU GET REUBEN, IF YOU DO IT BEFOREHAND YOU WILL SOFTLOCK THE
    GAME BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET REUBEN INTO YOUR PARTY.
    
    Anyways, I hope that is enough of a warning. Once you "delivered" the Thunder
    Rock, exit and move 2 locations north.
    
    28)SPENCER'S PLACE[SPCPL]
    =========================
    
    Once you enter there will be a little cutscene. Usually you would get the
    [MOBIUS CREST] here, but we were fortunate enough to glitch this into our
    inventory earlier so just leave immediatley after and go back to Windia.
    
    In Windia go to Otto's house and talk to Kaeli, she will give you the
    [CAPTAIN CAP]! EXIT and reenter Windia. Go North past the INN this time into
    the house on far top right of the city. In this house take the stairs down on
    the right and use the Mobius-Teleporter to get to the Ship Dock.
    From here just move north and enter the Deck of Mac's Ship.
    
    29)MAC'S SHIP[MCSHP]
    ====================
    ENEMIES:Naga(870HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Gargoyle(888HP/Projectile,Wind),
           Thanatos(900HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Shadow(925HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder)
           Chimera(870HP/Projectile,Wind), Sorcerer(840HP/Projectile,Wind)
    
    Move left and fight the Chimera. If it is 2 Chimeras, perfect, use
    Aero/White. If it is 2 Mages and a Chimera, bad luck, you will have to
    Exit/Life(Mages). From here move right and fight fight the Thanatos to the left
    that is standing infront of a barrel. You are aiming to get
    a 2 Thanatos Battle Formation so you can use Flare/Defend, so if you get another
    one just run away until you get this one.
    
    Jump over the barrel and climb up the mast,go right at the first intersection
    and then up the rope until you are between 2 Thanatos. Again try to get the
    2 Thanatos formation, you can fight either one of those, and exit through the
    stairs to the northwest from here. Descend further to reach B2.
    
    Here go south and fight the next Thanatos, go up the stairs at the end here.
    Take the left path and descend once more and now fight the Gargoyle that is
    in your way(Use Flare with Benjamin and White with Reuben here).Follow the path
    and you will reach B1 where a Red Chest on the left with the [GAIA'S ARMOR]
    awaits you!
    In the bottom of this room there is Mac waiting for you. Talk to him and you
    will automatically be put at the docks again. Here move one tile down to get
    Spencer and Tristam to appear and after the dialogue take the Mobius-Teleporter
    back and use EXIT then and reenter Winida.
    
    Go to the INN(house behind Otto's house) and Phoebe will automatically join you
    after a cutscene. Stay at the INN here(talk to the boy on the left), then talk
    to Mac once, use EXIT afterwards, reenter Windia and go back to Mac's Ship.
    
    On the deck go left and use the, after you have reached your destination use
    EXIT, move north once on the World Map and you will be at Doom Castle.
    
    30)DOOM CASTLE[DMCST]
    =====================
    a)Bone Dungeon Part[BDPRT]
    ==========================
    ENEMIES:Shadow(925HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Gorgon(150HP),Phanquid(400HP/Fire),
            Stheno(630HP/Earth)
    
    Go left from the entrance until you get to fight some Shadows in the way. These
    are weak to Thunder, so if you have 3 of these, use Thunder on one with Phoebe,
    if its 2 Phoebe can use White. Benjamin should always use Flare.
    
    Move north until you see stairs that go into the quicksand.
    
    [NOTE: If you are below Level 21, you will need the Claw to kill 2 Ninjas with
    Flare]
    
    ==============================================================================
    OPTIONAL:Go to the end of the stairs and hold RIGHT the whole time until you =
             reach a Bone Head you can get rid of with a Bomb. Fight the Gorgon  =
             that is in the way and open the Chest to get the almighty           =
             [AEGIS SHIELD] that will give you protection against the annoying   =
             petrify status! You do not have to get this, it will take 1 minute  =
             to get this but it's pretty nice since later on almost every enemy  =
             has some sort of petrification spell in store, so its your choice.  =
             Afterwards head back left and go past where you fought the Shadows. =
    ==============================================================================
    
    Ignore the first two stairs that go into the quicksand and go down the third you
    will come along until you hit a wall. move right from here into the little
    corridor and make sure to hold LEFT as you go down this one so you end up on a
    chest that is next to a bone head. Stand above the bone head, use a bomb to get
    rid of the one on the left and grapple over, move north and its time for the
    next boss.
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Skullrus Rex                                                           =

    STRATEGY:Use Exit on Skullrus Rex and leave Phoebe on Auto for the first    =
             round, she will cast Thunder on a single Shadow hopefully. After   =
             you got Skullrus, use Flare or whatever to finish of the rest.     =
    =============================================================================
    
    Move up two floors past where you fought the Rex and you will have to use the
    SKY COIN now to open the final door in Focus Tower.
    Behind that door move up and enter the next one.
    
    b)Ice Pyramid Part[IPPRT]
    =========================
    ENEMIES:Shadow(925HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Cerberus(935HP/Fire),
            Phanquid(400HP/Fire),Iflyte(660HP/Ice),Thanatos(900HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder)
            Freezer Crab(410HP/Axe)
    
    NOTE:You can leave Phoebe on Auto for this whole section and Benjamin should
         cast Flare every battle.
    
    Kill the left shadow that is blocking the switch and go into to the door after
    you hit the aforementioned.
    From here go left and hit the next switch,go into the opened door and fight
    the Phanquid. Hit the switch he was guarding and move back to the entrance.
    
    From here move right this time and jump over the gap, go left to yet hit another
    switch. Go right and up, ignore the Phanquid for now and follow the rightmost
    path to another switch you have to hit.
    Now go back and fight the Phanquid and continue on this path and fight the
    Freezer Crab blocking the next switch. Hit it.
    (Most of the time this is the fight after which you have to use seeds on your
    party members to refresh).
    
    Go back grapple over down to the post that is close to the inactive statue
    close to the starting point. Follow the path, go down if you have a choice,take
    the left door in the room and hit the statue past this little room.
    A little below this statue you can jump over the gap and follow the path left
    around until you hit another Freezer Crab.
    At the end of the path grapple over to the other side, go into the door and
    prepare for the boss fight.
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Stone Golem                                                            =

    DAMAGE:haha                                                                 =
    STRATEGY:Another fight you can use Exit on the Boss, this is the last one   =
             though.                                                            =
             Leave Phoebe on Auto, so she will use FIRE on a Cerberus and you   =
             use Exit on the Golem and be done with this fight.                 =
    =============================================================================
    
    After the fight exit the room and grapple over to the bottomright, move south
    all the way until you can grapple over twice more and are back at the entrance.
    Now move out of this area and climb up one Floor in the hallway to reach the
    next part of Doom Castle.
    
    c)Lava Dome Part[LDPRT]
    =======================
    ENEMIES:Cerberus(935HP/Fire),Stheno(630HP/Earth),Iflyte(660HP/Ice)
    
    Take the right path and jump over the platforms, then turn left where you see
    the Stheno and jump over to her and fight her(Use Flare/White).
    
    Jump across the platforms to the south from here and fight the Cerberus in the
    way(If its 2 Flare/White, if its 3 Flare/Defend).
    Grapple over to the left and jump north to fight and Iflyte(Flare/White).
    Follow the path down and you can see a Cerberus blocking a gap. You can either
    fight it now or later when you want to get out of this area its your choice,
    either way go to the right end of the path and grapple over and fight the
    Stheno in the way. Heal and Seed up after this fight since the next boss is
    already waiting for you north from here.
    
    =============================================================================
    BOSS:Twinhead Wyvern                                                        =

    STRATEGY:Use White and Flare in the first round so you get rid of the Iflyte=
             and Stheno.                                                        = 
             You dont really have much of a choice here, just use White and Aero=

             the 700's with Phoebe.                                             =
             He should fall relatively quickly.                                 =
    =============================================================================
    
    Heal and Seed up once more after the fight and grapple over to the left.
    To exit this area, go where I told you the Cerberus were blocking a gap,
    grapple over there and voila you are back at the entrance.
    Move up once more to reach the penultimate area of this dungeon.
    
    d)Pazuzu's Tower Part[PTPRT]
    ============================
    ENEMIES:Cerberus(935HP/Fire),Chimera(870HP/Projectile,Wind),
            Thanatos(900HP/Wind,Ice,Thunder),Freezer Crab(410HP/Axe)
    
    Fair warning you can fall down to the last part from here, so be careful.
    At the first intersection go right and down at the next and fight the
    Cerberus.
    Move right after the fight along the path and fight the Chimera(If you have
    2 Chimera and a Cerberus in the Battle you need to use Meteor/White with both
    your characters since Chimera's are strong against Fire).
    Continue to the left until you have to fight a Thanatos. Enter the door past
    them and fight the Cerberus(This might be a good time to Seed up).
    Enter the glass hallway and fight the Chimera and Thanatos.
    Exit the glass hallway and fight the Chimera and go right before the Thanatos
    (DO NOT FIGHT HIM) and go up at the next intersection.
    You can skip this Cerberus by moving right on the stairs. Follow the path and
    figth the Chimera and Thanatos before you engage the final Bird in this game.

             After Round 1 switch to the Claw with Benjamin and start using     =
             Flare every round, Phoebe should use White all the time.           =
             Again if one of you characters falls below 1/2HP have Phoebe heal  =
             with Auto.                                                         =
             This one will use Psychshield just like Pazuzu, but already after  =
             4 turns, so use this to heal up and seed up. Phoebe is RARELY      =
             faster than him so it might be worth casting spells with her after =
             the Psychshield turn, but its still a slight risk.                 =
             Other than that he should go down pretty fast.                     =
    =============================================================================
    
    After the fight move back to where you left the Cerberus alive and move straight
    down from here and fall down to the Lava Dome part, grapple over and exit the
    area.
    
    In the hallway move to the top part of the tower and move to the statue in
    the middle of the room. You now get a free heal and the door past it opens up.
    
    Well this is it, go into the huge door and follow the way until the end.
    
    31)DARK KING[DKKNG]
    ===================
    
    Before fighting him there are two different scenarios here:
    Most of the time you will end up on Level 21 or Level 22. Maybe Level 23.
    There is a very very very slim chance you will actually hit Level 24 but I
    included the strategy to kill him quickly anyways.
    Here is the data:

             Benjamin heals him, Phoebe heals him, Benjamin heals him twice in a=
             row.                                                               =
             In terms of what exactly to do, it would unfold like this:         =
    ROUND 1: Benjamin uses Cure on Dark King/Phoebe defends Benjamin            =
    ROUND 2: Benjamin uses Cure on Dark King/Phoebe uses Cure on Dark King      =
    ROUND 3: Benjamin uses Cure on Dark King/Phoebe defends Benjamin            =
             You could get unlucky and if Dark King decides to drain HP in Round=
             2 he will go through another transformation which will steal around=
             15 seconds from you, but that is about the worst that can happen   =
             to you.                                                            =

             Phoebe in the first 2 rounds. Now use Flare with Benjamin and      =
             Thunder with Phoebe to finish him off. Easy enough huh? :D         =
    =============================================================================
    
    It should be rather obvious why you would prefer Level 24 at Dark King, but
    with the updated strats and glitches that is close to impossible to happen
    to you.
    Once you hit him with the final Cure and the Damage rolls, stop the Timer and 
    congratulations, you finished the run :).

    Instead of providing notes on every single thing in this game I decided I
    would do a little formation guide instead. I will list all possible encounters
    in a given area below and what you can do to kill them quickly. I feel like
    a little overview like that would be more helpful than my notes that nobody
    understands anyways.
    NOTE: I will not include bosses since there is full battle guides for them
          in the walkthrough.
