By this I mean, there will not be a complete guide for you reading pleasures (yet). Until I have played further into the game, this FAQ will remain at its current state. Please be patient, I have a tight schedule and fitting in writing FAQs into my daily schedule isn't exactly listed under "leisure activities" But I will continute to update this FAQ as much as possible. //End// =========== 1. UPDATES =========== Version 0.1: First Version of the FAQ. Obviously, this being First version, there won't be much in it as it is still in the works. Keep checking back for updates! Don't count on a day by day basis. (2/15/01) - Finished a couple of bosses =================== 2. BOSS STRATEGIES =================== Before headin' out... ----- TIPS ----- - Be prepared for everything. Before you set out, drop by an item shop or some armory shop and buy what's needed. You'd never know what's to come. - Bring LOTS of curative items. Do not heavily depend on magic as Starlights and Silverlights are hard to come by. - As you progress in the game, you may notice that the enemies will position themselves in a certain way insinuating that they are going to either do a special attack, cast a spell, or just a regular attack. You're going to have to learn these body expressions as time flies. It will make life much easier for you. - Analyze the enemies weaknesses. Pay attention to the color coded effects on the enemies when casting magic spells. Some may not be as effective as others. Experiment. - Save before a boss fight. Any common gamer would acknowledge this. ################ # # # DISC ONE # # # ################ Appearing in chronological order... ------------- GUARDIAN Location: Blue Spire EXP: 121 SILVER: 100 Party's levels: Hiro- 12, Gwyn- 12 ====================================================================== It's essential that Gwyn is at level 12 because that is when he learns his Shattered Sword skill and you'll be depending on it for this particular boss fight. To start off the fight, the Guardian will boost his Attack and Defense enough to do some real damage to you. So have Gwyn cast Shattered sword and Fractured Armor on him in that order. Hiro should bash away with Poe Sword every turn. Keep Gwyn on the lower right corner and Hiro should remain in front at ALL times. This way, the Guardian will always attack Hiro. Gwyn can heal when necessary. By the time, Hiro's MP reaches danger level, the Guardian should be dead by then. The Guardian's attacks vary depending on his fighting stance. If he is stationary and groping at his chain, then he is about to boost his stats. This will happen occasionally, use Gwyn's Shattered Sword and Fractured Armor to counter the effects. If he is swinging his chain above his ahead like a helicopter, he will attack one character dealing a quite a bit of damage, but nothing to worry about (if you did cast Shattered Sword). If he is doing neither, then he will do a regular attack. ------------------ PLANTELLA Location: Caravan Underground EXP: 420 SILVER: 0 Party's levels: Hiro- 17, Ronfar- 17, Jean- 16 ====================================================================== Plantella will initiate the fight in her first form which is what you saw in a non-battle screen. For her first form, keep your HP above 50 at all times. And your basic strategy is to have Hiro remain in front of the other characters. Hiro should be using his Poe Sword. From time to time, Plantella will poison one of your characters, which is not very pleasant. When this happens, Ronfar should cast Clean Litany on the poisoned character. So use Ronfar as your main healer, he should just defend otherwise because you must conserve his HP. Jean should continuously use Sleep Step as it proves effective, as all her other skills. Ruby and Lucia will come in occasionally to attack. When Plantella sheds to her second form, again, keep your HP above 50 because she can do this seed attack that will damage the whole party. Use the same attack method as explained above. Finally, when she strips to her final form, keep your HP above 70! If you do this right, then you should have no problems at all. ------------------ MAGIC TESTER LX1 Location: Ghost Manor EXP: 1080 SILVER: 0 Party's levels: Hiro- 19, Ronfar- 19, Jean- 18 ====================================================================== This dopey looking child's play toy can sure do some damage. Like Plantella, this guy has a few forms. It took me forever to beat him so it is important that the party's level is at 19+. To start things up, Hiro should again be in the frontline while Jean and Ronfar stay behind. Hiro should use Boomerang instead of Poe Sword because they both deal the same amount of damage but Boomerang takes less MP to cast. Don't bother with Jean her magic skills won't have any effect on it, so the least she can do is attack normally. Ronfar MUST always defend, and heal when needed. MP is the keyword here. Just keep pounding away at it until it starts to fall apart. That should be his second form and when this happens, keep your HP above 50! Repeat the same methods until he really starts to lose his head. On his third form, keep HP above 70!! One of his attacks can do some real damage. When he starts sucking up air, DEFEND!!! Other attacks include a sonic wave that can paralyze a character if lucky, bubbles that can inflict sleep status, and his everyday normal attacks. When he starts acting like a bouncy ball, defend! He's about to make pancakes for breakfast. As long as Ronfar's MP is still good and running, you'll have no trouble. Use some Starlights if you need to. ------------------ MISSING LINK Location: Zulan Mountains EXP: 2600 SILVER: 0 Party's levels: Hiro- 24, Ronfar- 24, Jean- 24, Lemina- 24 ====================================================================== Before the fight, make sure all your characters are not close to one another because this snow beast has an attack that can damage all your characters at once if you're bunched up together and his attacks don't end there! Hiro should be right in front of the snow beast, that way it will only attack Hiro and not others. Have the rest of the group huddled together in the corner. Jean should position herself on the top right corner, Ronfar in the middle (back), Lemina on the bottom right corner and Lucia can be where ever she wants as long she can survive. Hiro will be using Poe Sword throughout the fight. For the first turn, Jean should just attack normally, Ronfar could use Anger Dice, Lemina will cast Power Flame on Hiro. Have Lemina alternate between casting Power Flame from time to time and casting Flame Shot. Jean should continue attacking and Ronfar will be the party's healer. When the snow beast starts pounding on his chest, he is about to pound on some people, this being Hiro since he is the one closest to him. If he just stands there, he is about to cast a blizzard spell which can really do some serious damage if your MGCDEF is low. Once the snow beast starts stargazing, cease ALL ATTACKS. He will create an ice barrier protecting him from ALL ATTACKS. Take this opportunity to cure and make up. If any of your party member's HP drops below 70, heal them! ------------------ ASSASSINS x4 Location: Meribian Sewers EXP: 1280 SILVER: 600 Items: Angel's Tear Party's levels: Hiro- 26, Jean- 26, Ronfar-26, Lemina- 26 ====================================================================== This is not a very difficult fight. I would really count this as a tough regular enemy battle, but since they're the last enemies you fight in the area, I'll list them here. Anyway, four against four is just about what I call a fair fight. But guess again, these guys can sure pack a punch and have a bunch of HP each! Before the fight, make sure Lemina is equipped with the Thunder Staff and have her alternate attacks between Freeze Claw and normal attacks. Jean should also be equipped with a defense boost item like Iron Clogs for example, and have Jean cast Butterfly Dance to poison the clan. Make sure your healers and magic users (Ronfar, Lemina) are in the back. Hiro shall be continuously using Poe Sword. Focus on one guy at a time and heal when HP drops below 60. These assassins are very proficient in their work. When they burst into flames, they are about to beat a character down dishing out 60 HP! So try to kill that person before he gets the chance to act. As I've said earlier, this battle shouldn't be too hard, just as long as you had Jean cast Butterfly Dance, you'll be victorious. ============= 3. BOSS LIST ============= DISC ONE 1. Guardian
