King's Field is the game I'm writing this FAQ for. This FAQ is no where near complete. Updates will be frequent, Any questions, comments and the such can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions asked already seen on this FAQ will be deleted. So look carefully :) [ 2 ] -------------------------------------------------- Story (as seen from the manual, and at www.kingsfield.agetec.com) At the west of the barren land, at the foot of the high peaks within the Morraddi mountains, lies a land found in the shadows of a dark and misty forest. Once, this land was referred to as the Holy Land and it was blessed by the grace of fertile soil and a giving Sun. There came a time long ago when the skies in this area became perpetually obscured by a shroud of dark clouds. The Holy Land was deserted. The people of this Land, known as the Forest Folk, built an underground city and they have lived there ever since. Knowledge of this once great land has faded amongst the remaining kingdoms. Even now, only a few of the wise men remember tales of the Holy Land. The place is now referred to as simply "The Land of Disaster." One day, a ceremonial idol representing the highest ideal of peace was presented to the King of the small country Heladin. Moved by the gesture of the gift, the King, Lucien IV, decreed that the idol would have a permanent home in his throne room. At once, the kingdom of Heladin began a quickening spiral of decay. The King's sages were asked if they could discover the source of the curse that had befallen the kingdom. The sages uncovered the legend of an "Idol of Sorrow" that was said to originate from the mysterious Forest Folk from the Land of Disaster. The sages attributed the fall of the Land of Disaster to the cursed Idol of Sorrow and believe that the idol received by King Lucien was indeed this item. The people of Heladin organized an expedition to return the wretched idol to the Land of Disaster in the hopes of breaking its curse. With the highest hopes, the team of adventurers, led by the famous Sword Master, set out on their expedition and, tragically, were never seen again. On a storm-swept night, Prince Devian of Azalin was visited by a strange wanderer. The person presented the Prince with an idol and informed him to, "Return this idol to the Land of Disaster so that other kingdoms do not succumb to its wicked curse." Because of his friendship with the Sword Master, Prince Devian knew of the expedition sent from Heladin to return a cursed idol but had not heard the outcome. Feeling the burden of the quest to rid the land of the wicked idol, the prince set out for the Land of Disaster and the Ancient City that lies within its dark forest. Prince Devian was also aware of the dangers inherent in traveling to a realm that has been reclaimed by nature's fury. [ 3 ] -------------------------------------------------- Basics & Tips - Controls in King's Field are alittle awkward and slow, easy to learn but hard to master. Learn to strafe with the shoulder buttons, this makes it easier to get to the enemies back and attack. Also walking and strafing around corners make it easier to view whats around them, making you have the edge on an ambush, trap, etc. - Save all the time, there are alot of traps out there. Once you die anything found you will lose up to your last save. - Talk to everyone, and keep going back to talk to them. They might have some information about certian areas and items. Don't kill anyone either, besides for Lee Maynor - Examine everything, walls, floors, dead people, barrels, etc. There are alot of items out there. Look everywhere you can, even ceilings! - Once you save the drawven blacksmith, Hamurah Forgefist, repair any and all equipment. Having armors and weapons in good shape will do very well in battle, making a better chance of survival in your battles. - Do NOT impulse buy! Only get herbs, shrooms, arrows, etc. Usually you'll find the weapons or armors (besides the crystal armor set)soon after you meet these shop keepers. However, do buy what you think are the rare items, magic crystals, vials, wands, etc. - When you reach fist level 3 you'll be able to use fist magic, and some weapons including darkwood club, windslasher, venom blade, etc. can use "fist" magic as well. It will throw a razor like slash. [ 4 ] -------------------------------------------------- Character list - Celcile Yeala: You'll see this coward sitting in the small cave right in the beginning of the game. He's not much of a man, but he's got a few interesting things to say. - Lynn Genne: A young girl who tries to play with her mopy dog. Her mother is sick and she really wants to help her. You can help her out by giving her mom the rock of life. Whack her dog to be mean. >:p Items you reiceive from her: Fire crystal #1 [fireball] - Sharyl Genne: Mother to Lynn, she seems kinda anti-social giving you short answsers and such. Give her the rock of life, and don't forget to grab the shield by her bed. - Duhrin Pathwardin: A old man that wants the world to be rid of evil. Not much going on with him, besides the fact he.... you'll see... Items you get from this gentleman: Rusty key; which opens up his house. - Chad Breshears: A master thief that really wants a rock of life, go ahead and deliver it and he gives you a crystal vial. The vial is a great item that will be essential to your quest. Fill them up with healing water. You'll find him later on trying to sell you items he gets. - David Bunch: Catchy tune this guy has. He sells your first wind crystal [wind cutter] and a few other things. Don't buy the mace or helmet bucause you'll find them SOON, this rule applies for most other shop owners. - Marcus Zan: This rude dude you find in the mine near the decomposed man with the poison stool growing out of him (cool site!). This guy doesnt have much to say and thankfully he dies later on. - Mista Fopa: This old elf has some signs of Alzheimers Disease. He's a dreamer wanting for the laughter of the childen to be heard. He cares about the young folk. The item you can get from him is the release rock. - Lee Maynor: An expedition soldier wanting to die... I say go ahead and do it. If you don't, after a while he'll become a zombie and you'll have to kill him anyways. You get a cresent moon key from him, opening up the huge spiders lair. - Ramirez Martin: A plump soldier that was attacked by his own men after they were zombified by those bugs. He hid in a large room near exploding barrels for defence (my opinion) i guess he would blow them up. He'll give you a bow when you save him. This guy has arrows for sale, it wouldn't hurt to buy a few. At least 10. - Aeaine Vigil: This lady sits by her(?) healing fountain, thinking about the right or wrong doing of the king. She owns the forest golem standing next to the huge door. Retreieve the forest dew from the caves in that area and feed the golem. Don't worry about him attacking you. - Paul Hutchison: Tom Hanks got castawayed again... fill up a vial with poison where you first met Mista and give it to him to kill the fish men. He'll give you the fortune bracelet. - Oagh Barleigh: He sits in a small room with Myu's necklace, he's afraid of the widdas, those snake men. Throw him down an egg and he'll give you a chance to trade with him. His currency is bones, scales and claws. - Jamarc Neely: He's a traveling merchant who got lost. He's lying... He wouldn't be sitting in one place if he was. Buy the yellow wand off of him, earth stones, and the crystal vial. - Others: There are about 10 other characters about the land of the ancient city, they don't do too much other then just say things to get you in the mood (of the game silly). [ 5 ] -------------------------------------------------- Mini Walkthrough This walkthrough isn't thorough, it's just to help you on your way and not get stuck. You can always go alternate direction and collect items ect. in any way you please. Some or most items will not be mentioned, being that there not of too much importance _or_ they are plain as day to find. If anyone want's me to add anything, feel free to email me. I've tried to make this as spoiler free as possible. ) a ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Starting your quest You'll start off in a lava vally, watch out after the second lava pit there is a trap floor (yes it starts already). Go left thru the door and collect the mace near Cecile. These ruins also have the leather helmet/gloves/and boots. Hunt them down, there easy to find. Once you get an expedition key, head back here for the spider armband.(this isn't until about a quarter way through the game) Leave the way you came and follow the right wall (_don't_ fall in the trap) and make your way up the narrow valley, talk to Lynn and her mother. Head back and go left into the small cavern and the other side you'll get a short sword and 100 gold. Go back and get inside the mine. Search for the 2 rocks of life (check the FAQ section for more info), get the pick ax from the undead near the barrel, also pick up any and all earth stones you get. Head back out. After you retrieve the rocks of life, hand one over to Lynn's mother. Walk out and talk to Lynn, she gives you a fire crystal, use it. Then go around out back, smash the boarded up doorway down of the abandon house. In the back door you'll find the Clarity Bracelet, but you'll have to beat up a helpless tree first. Uquip it and start buidling up your fireball level. Make it back to the dried healing fountain and through the doors, go upstairs and talk to Chad, give him the rock and he gives you a vial. Good buisness indeed. Turn around and shoot down the dragon flower. Head back to Cecile and enter the small cave around the corner from him and head down the stairs. You'll find David Bunch, take a good look at him. You'll see him often. Check out his sign, read it backwards. It'll make sense to you if your a kings field vet. If he has map, don't get it! After a while a man will buy it, then you can get it for free. Buy some herbs and a shroom if you can afford it, anything else he has (besides the wind crystal) skip. Smash down the barrels for the iron helmet. If the doorway is blocked hack it down then tread thru untill you reach the outside. Eventually you'll make it to a church with Duhrin, talk to him and kill the skeletons out back. Go back and get his key to his house. Go back to his house and take everything there. You'll get the caretaker map. ) b ( -----------------------------------------------\\ First Boss: SPIDER! Back track to the place you found the Dragon Flower and head to the back left room with the teeny spider. Fire ball the web down, proceed downstairs and burn the webs. Walking into these cause slow...I mean _really_ slow, it doesn't even look like your moving... Watch out for the spiders on the ceiling. Open the door and head left to the next door, this is Lee. Wait till he's a zombie, or kill him now to get the cresent moon key. Go out and go around the other side and place it (the key) under the burned out flame on the center doorway. This huge spider shouldnt be a bother, keep behind him, slash, and use magic. You shouldnt be hurt at all and it is possible to kill him at level one. Go down the corridor and go right, heading straight will bring you face to face with big purple zombies that can usualy rip 70% life or more in a hit. Don't go that way unless you got metal spheres down yonder. When you do through the doorway you'll see a huge 2 level room. Run around and kill the sniping skeleton archer, don't worry he wont respawn. Search the entire area for the 2 release rock and a mighty fiery sword. There is a locked door that leads to David, unlock it and grab the release rock there. Check the jail cells, fall through a whole in the back right cell and get your other release rock. Don't forget to check all the graves for herbs and other items. If you found Mista yet(the old guy), go back to him with the release rocks. Don't touch the water and go around the corner, use fireball to burn the web with the light crystal. You can grab the crystal around the room you fought that big spider. Use the release rocks on the door. You got some herbs and your fiery sword? Magic helps too... Get it all ready because you fight about 15+ skeletons, some with axes. Don't let them surround you or you wont make it. After thats all said and done, go thru the back door and get your icon of healing. Backtrack to the huge spiders lair and place it on the alter. You got your healing fountain, go fill up the vial. ) c ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Expedition was a failure? Find the corridor infront of the huge spiders lair, head straight down and through the door. You'll be in a large room with arrows raining down infront of you, dont try to go thru them. (you could but I don't recommend) You should be strong enough to fight Cecile's Zombified friends. Don't forget when you kill them, try to kill those little bugs. They're worth more exp then the zombies themselves! Turn right and look for a small room as far back as you can go on the right wall. Get the items and check the wall for knight greaves. Leave and walk straight down, you'll see a long room going both direction with golems. Don't worry there not gonna hurt you...yet. Go around back of the wall and search for the binding crown, grab it and run like mad out of there before the golem swats you like the weak little fly you are. Go to the main room with the arrows and head straight (not throughthe arrows) Proceed straight until you meet up with the zombie near the stairs. Defeat any and all enemies in that area and grab the items, there is an engineer's room there don't forget about it later in the game. Find the stairs that lead down and flip the switch to release the dog, go there and grab the red guidestone. Go forward and rob the tiny treasury. Head out and find the room with the stairs heading up, there is an empty woodeen box next to the stairs. Head down and drop off the ledge and turn the arrow trap off then take the helmet. Turn around and go up the stairs and battle the zombie, he has a height advantage so be careful. turn off the other 4 arrow traps and go back to the main room. Open the door that was protected by the raining arrows and collect your weapons and armors et cetera and go right. There is a door on the right with 2 flame pillars, go thru and do down the stairs. You'll se a big golem, dont fight it. Place the binding crown on the pedestal on the right, he'll leave you alone for now. ) d ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Ancient tower When the golems are sleeping, creep up the stairs and collect the armor. Go through to large door and you'll be in an insanly large room. This is the ancient tower! This tower just about connects to everything and you'll be visiting here often. Go left and into the first door and kill the zombies, this opens the back door to Ramirez. He'll give you the bow, then you'll be able to go back and kill those huge golems. GET the keystone from the cut out in the wall behind the back golems resting spot. This is a must. Go back to the tower. Search the rooms around the tower for items and such(including the expedition key), then make your way to the door near the ledge(going right from the main entrance). You'll wake your way to an area with a row of poison mushrooms, kill them and head on back to the door. You'll re enter the tower area and find a bridge. Lower the bridge by placing the keystone and carry on from there over to the other bridge and through the next door. You'll enter a room with what appears to be a mudslide in the back. You can't go through the gate to the right yet so go left. This room has a bunch of different ways to go. Try going right and find the darkest rooms in the game. These rooms are filled with spiders, bats, lizards, and of course... goodies like the dark crystal. After that battle your battles and find your finds including another keystone and find the tall room filled with bats and an earth dino. There is a small pillar with writing from a girl your about to meet and a bastard sword on the other side. Head up the stairs. ) e ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Fresh air, big guys, and huge fights. After climbing the stairs open the door and go outside for some fresh air. You must be sick of smelling those rotting corpses, nasty dinos and poison mushrooms. Save and walk through the valley, check out the big guy standing there. You both will help out each other in a bit but for now, talk to Aeanie and get the earth crystal beyond the trees. Ready up your magic and all with the MP healing fountain and go back through the valley on the left, opposite the valley you arrived from. Play with all the cute furballs and find the forest dew, return to the big guy and let him have it. He'll open the door for you. Down the stairs to the right is a door with a crystal vial, go back and filler up in the fountain. After that you'll end up with a room with statues, these guys like to stab so make sure your stab is high or you'll take plenty of damage. You might wanna take the stairs to the left as you enter. Make some adjustments to yourself because there is gonna be some brawling! Find a dark spooky room with a recording of some nut talking backwards and light up the room with fire. Look up at the mummies and shoot down the crystal. The spell you learn from this crystal is flash, and you'll like it alot. Go back and head toward a room with a bunch of skeletons with bow and arrow. You'll be sniped quickly and might die so try ringing the bell with flash or fireball. The skeletons will drop as fast as then popped up at you. Heal if you got hit and find the Holycrest, you'll need it. Head up the stairs and open the coffins on the highest peak. Get the preist key and other items and get ready for one of the more serious fights. When you win (and you will hopefully). Go back and head left to find Chad, buy anything you lack and be on your way. [ 6 ] -------------------------------------------------- FAQ Q: Who should I give the life stone to? A: I'd give it to the young girl with her sick mother first, to get your fire spell. Don't forget there are TWO rocks of life! One is by Mr. Gennes body, near the undead miners where the planks are. The other one is inside of the same mine, but in the poisonous area with the large poison slime. Kill it quick, grab the second rock of life and run out then use an antidote. Q: Can you swim? It says to "surface for air" in the manual. A: No you can't technically swim, just climb stairs to the surface. I don't think anyone can swim with 100 pounds of armor on... Q: The Clarity Bracelet... What about it? A: This item raises your MP more then triple, to my knowledge there is no downside. This item is worth a ton of money, but I'd keep it. All the good items are usually found. TIP: When you save the blacksmith, have him upgrade it. Having some extra stab/hit/slash protection comes in handy and there is no "dura" on this item, making it a good defence piece. Q: Bones, Claws, and Scales, OH MY! A: Keep them, you'll need them to trade later in the game. Stuff you can get from them: fool's fruit, wiseman fruit, and... something else. But, If your in a pinch for money go ahead a sell them! You can always buy them back for more then double you sold them for. :\ Q: Weapon levels, when do i earn them and how high can i go? A: Weapon level goes up to 3, it's also possible to make your fist level 3 as well, making it possible to throw out a projectile with you fist for big damage. It's about 200 full blast swings until level two, and 300 swings full blast for level three. Keep in mind these hits have to connect with enemies. Q: Ok... your fist can throw out stuff, anything else? A: I've used Venom Blade, Triple Fang, and the Moonlight Sword. These all have sword magic. If there is anyone out there that has gotten any other swords to use sword magin plase let me know. Q: HOW do i use sword / weapon magic. A: Once you swing your weapon, press triangle near the start of the movement, this should produce the magic. There is timing involved... sometimes its frustrating to do. Usually turning off other magic helps to perform sword magic. Q: I saw neat armor in large purple elctric orbs, how do i get them? A: This is Lord Myu's armor set, you'll need to get the moonlight sword to whack them out. Here is a list of places to retrieve his armor Helmet: Center tower's first floor, drop into the water behind it and go left. Walk over to the jail cell and turn right, there is a secret door. Chest Armor: Make it to the old battlefield, and head into the open field with the demons and zombies. Make your way onto the huge dragon skeleton and up to the platau. There is the armor of Lord Myu. Arms: The Graveyard with the Dark Skulls. Find the Teleport icon and head around the corner, you'll know where to go from the sound of things. Shield: The Old Battlefield jail cells, listen for the sound on the bottom floor and you'll find them. Greaves: Near where you fought the three huge spiders in the ancient city. Go up the flight of stairs with the giant and the female archers. You'll hear the sound. [ 7 ] -------------------------------------------------- Key Item Summary Here is a list of USEFUL weapons/armor/items you'll find along your quest. This tells you a bit about them and where to get them.

Find the binding post and lay the crown down on it. The huge golem should be stomping down, kill him and go past to find a short draw bridge. Climb the stairs and put the release rocks to lower the bridge and go back down. On the far side of the room in the engineers key, grab it. Craftsman key: You'll get this key from good' ol Hamurah Forgefist. Easier said then done! When you get to the frozen iron refinery, make your way to the lair of fire. There you'll find my fat buddy fire guy! Kill him and watch out for the little clones he throws at you. This should return the molten iron to the refinery and melt down Hamurah. He'll sit there for a little and look at his hands, then go to the earth folk's lair. Meet up with him and get your Craftsman key. Get your beaten and battered equipment fixed up too. FREE! Forest Folk's key: You'll find this in the front room on the Treasury. There is a skeleton on the floor (Zastari), he has the key. Before you snatch the key, watch out for the spears! Run like hell straight/right running right over the skeleton and open the secret door and switch them spears off. it's safe now, get the key and talk to Chad... Serrak's Key: Mansion of Howling winds is where you'll find it. Force your way down as far as you can go, killing the giants. You'll have to watch your back because a huge giant (yes huge giant) slams down a wall with a hammer at least the size of 2 people. Keep away from him cause if you try to get behind him he'll take out his hammer and do a hammer spin. Hitting you multiple times for massive damage. Kill him for the key.

Jail key: You'll find this near a skeleton on the way to the old battlefield's jail. ) b ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Items ______ Wands: Red/Blue/Green: The king's throne area. When you enter the room with the spooky eyes that follow you head right and press your event button on the eye that wont follow you. This should stop the door ahead from trying to kill you. Here you can grab the wands. Yellow: Buy this from the traveling merchant named Jamarc Neely. You'll find him in the cave containing the huge beetle. Don't forget the vials and earth stones he has! Violet: Defeat the Master Demon near the Old Battlefield. ____________ Guidestones: Red: Release the dog from the cage in the armory. This is where you'll find all the expedition zombies.

He'll give you a crystal vial. ) c ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Magic Crystals ______________ ^--^^Fire^^--^ Fire Crystal 1 (fireball): Save Lynns mom with the rock of life, go and talk to Lynn again. Fire ball is a good magic early on, and even halfway through the game. At higher levels the fire ball will explode and cause more damage. Fire Crystal 2 (firewall): After killing the Fat Fire guy in the fire cave, return to the iced iron refinery. There is a large room there with the beetles, go into the corner and grab it. Firewall is alittle better than Fireball in damage and area, but it doesnt travel too far. Power it up level or 2 and it does big damage. Fire Crystal 3 (fire breath): After defeating the Fire Lord, search the immediate area for the 3rd Crystal. I havent found Fire Breath too useful, I havent raised it's level. Fire Crystal 4 (Immoliate): The mansion, near center tower. Defeat the 3 giant spiders and examine the middle torch. This sends out 2 homing fireballs that don't burn out very quick. They can cause some good damage but by this point of the game you should be using a level 3 flash. Fire Crystal 5 (?): ? ___________ ___Earth___ Earth Crystal 1 (earth heal): Go back to where you layed the huge golems back to there resting place. Take off the crowns and stand back. Use your bow and arrow and shoot there "eye". Two well-placed arrows each should make them fall. Grab the earth crystal where the golem was resting. Earth Heal is weak at first, keep using it and it should prove useful. Earth Crystal 2 (upheaval): Once you reach the Forest, turn left into the passageway surrounded by trees. Go inside the shrine and get the upheaval spell. Upheavel is similar to what the Living Trees do to you, but adds huge rock pillars causing good damage. Earth Crystal 3 (earth leech): Make your way to the ancient citys level 2 area and find the cavern cut into the wall. Battle the large Beetle there and it'll drop the eath crystal. Use a hammer if your having problems. I haven't used this much, it does poison damage to enemies. Earth Crystal 4 (volcannon): Take a ride on the snake mobile in the egg mines, then reach the snakes den. There is a hole you need to drop into for this crystal, and its well guarded with about 6 large headed snakes. Earth Crystal 5 (Meteor): This Crystal can be found in the Treasury, find it laying on a statue/pedestal. ____________ ))))Wind(((( Wind Crystal 1 (wind cutter): Purchase this for 2,500 gold off of David Bunch. This magic has semi good stats, fast charge and medium damage. You can do better however. Wind Crystal 2 (life shield): You'll find this on the 3rd level of the ancient city, search for the barrel with this crystal. There are plenty of Widda in this area. I havent found a good use for this magic. It doesnt help against arrows, but it says it's supposed to. Wind Crystal 3 (ice clad): This is a little tricky, check for a secret door in the 3rd level of the ancient city. There are many wind lizards around, and a few skeletons. Wind Crystal 4 (tornado): Smash the pot off in the secret room off the track's in egg mines. You'll need to drop off a track to reach it and carefully walk to the tunnel. Here you'll find the crystal. Wind Crystal 5 (freeze): Infront of the mansion of howling winds is a ledge you have to jump down on. Search the caves for the last wind crystal. _____________ <<<*Water*>>> Water Crystal 1 (purity): After you kill the first huge spider, you can grab this useful crystal. This heals poison... WOOHOO! Water Crystal 2 (endure fire): Go to where you met Cecile in the beginning of the game and drop down the well. Tread through the water and grad the 2nd crystal. You'll be usuing this spell often, especially when you need to cross the flaming bridge and you don't want to kill the fire faces shooting at you. Water Crystal 3 (remedy): Drop down the ledge at the shore, you'll find the remedy crystal in there. This is a good magic to raise the levels on, it heals HP and cures you fo some status problems. Water Crystal 4 (vortex): Find this in a tunnel under water at the foot of the center tower. This magic works like a gyser, it doesnt seem to hit on target. Water Crystal 5 (Hydrosphere): The large green muk man near the entrance to the old battlefield. Flame him up and he'll drop, and he'll drop the crystal. ____________ ||||Dark|||| Dark Crystal 1 (shadow skin): Area where you first make contact with the earth lizards, there is a large dark room filled with Vampire bats and small spiders. Don't forget to pick up the earth carver here. This spell I didnt find useful, I want to be seen, i want to fight! :) Dark Crystal 2 (Eclipse): Ocean Fortress, there is a rectangle room with trap doors in the back corner. When you enter go left and around to get this crystal. It's a big ball of pain, don't let it kill you! Dark Crystal 3 (reckless strength): You'll find this in the flooded ruins. Make your way thru the water and the blue slimes. Grab the ancient sword when you see it. You'll approach a stand that talks to you, grab the crystal. This gives you strength beyong the norm. If would be very useful if it actually lasted longer. Dark Crystal 4 (drifting death): There is a secret wall clear as day (when you have lord myu's necklace on) when you enter the jail cell of the old battle field. Check the narrow ledge near the end of the wall. This makes you have gas...it's a killer. Dark Crystal 5 (dark matter): Leave the jail and drop into the acid, walk up the hills and there it is. Infront of the decaying golem. This is the easiest of them all to find. This is a good spell, just don't hit enemies with it... Try it out with no one around and you'll see what i mean. _____________ Light Light Crystal 1 (divine light): After learning your fire spell, meet up with Mista near the poison fountain and search for the hole in the wall. Throw a fireball down there and burn the web and go back to the corridor around the huge spiders lair. This spell you'll only need to use about twice. Useful if you want light attributes in your weapon, to do this get this magic to level 3. Light Crystal 2 (flash): In the King's throne area there is a spooky room all in the dark. Fire up the torch and look up at the mummies on the ceiling. Fire another spell at the crystal to get it down, don't worry about the mummies. There only there to creep you out. You'll be noticing that you'll have this spell equiped alot, I know i have. It's a good magic and effective to kill the huge purple phoenixs at the center tower for mega EXP. If you can lure the bird to ground kill it and get tons of gold and sometimes the kite shield. Light Crystal 3 (retribution): In the 2nd level of the ancient city find a round room with a bunch of ghosts, you'll aslo find the light crystal. Drop down and it's yours! Can you say pincushion?? This spell would have been my favorite if it actually HIT ON TARGET. Light Crystal 4 (invoked lightning): Go back to the King's throne with the ring of wisdom, open you "your not kingly" room. This room is left of thr throne. This is a semi-hard fight. Focus on the boss, and kill the strong skeletons if they are beginning to surround you. Grab the crystal when the king dies. (nice hat he's got huh?). Again a great spell, but doesn't usually Light Crystal 5 (judgement): This is in room behind the king's throne. This is the room that connects to where you upgrade your lawful blade, making it the moonlight sword. This spell it just like flash from king's field 1&2 (us). ) d ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Weapons Triple Fang: You'll find this sword in a secret room in the king's treasury. Thankfully Chad didn't find it. This sword performs sword magic that acts like judgement on a smaller scale. Lawful Blade/Moonlight Sword: What a great weapon! (_NOT_ the lawful blade) After you make the Widda queen bow down to your feet grab her key in the back room. Find your way to the jail with Septiego and grab the sword. Ok, the tricky part! Once you've collected the 4 black eyes and have the ring of wisdom go and check out the kings throne room. Kill the king and grab the crown. Leave and head up the long narrow stairway. Defeat the giant quad-armed statue nights and grab the ancient armors as you go. You should make it to a room with a skeleton, light crystal, and 2 doors. Place the black eyes on the door on the left. Walk on the narrow beam and the rest is done for you. This sword also performs sword magic, a huge blue beam that almost always connects with the enemy. Anceint Sword: You'll need to go swimming for this dumb sword. Go to the underwater ruins and you'll see it "floating" in the middle of a small tower, climb the stairs and jump off and grab it when its infront of you. It darkens your vision, it's semi weak, and it's "recharge" is horrible. If this is the replacement for the Dark Slayer from KF 1-2, give me a break! If anyone finds a use for this sword, other then the fact it lightens the load from the ancient armor set... Please let me know. Broken Sword/Wind Slayer: This weapon you'll find off a ledge you must drop off on the beach near the widda's lair. Take it back to Hamurah Forgefist and he'll repair it. I havent gotten this sword to perform anything magically. Holy Crest: Not really a main sword in the game, but you may find yourself using it alot! Kind this in the king's masouluem, the room with the bell tower and the many skeleton archers. Vemon Blade: Another very useful sword with extra poison damage. Find this in the egg mines' poison lake. Frostbite: This is another useful sword that heals HP slowly, but steaditly. Find this in the earth folk caves, in the room with the furnace. Dark Defiler: Get this from the floating skulls. You'll have to beat about 70 (maybe more or less) until they finally drop it out. If you need a good way to respawn this guy place a guidestone at the center tower closest to the graveyard. There is a teleport floor, use that and come back. This mace performs VERY POWERFUL magic as well. Becareful because the huge black pink disks can hurt you badly. Wavecrasher: This Katana is found directly left of the save position on the beach. Look along the greenish brown algea on the coastline. Uquip your Wind Slayer and listen for the loudest "whistle/ring/siren" sound. If your having trouble locating it, make sure your stereo speakers are all at the same volume. Crystalline Blade: This blade is found being held by a skeleton strapped in ice. The magic this sword performs is quite awkward. Black Scar: This sword is surrounded by lava in the iron refinery after placing the alter of ice. This sword magic is hard to aim, but when this red fire beam connects you'll see a huge flame that burns madly. ) e ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Armor __________________ Myu's set of armor Check FAQ section. _________________ Ancient Armor set Helmet/Gloves/Greaves: Next to the king's throne room in a door to a long narrow staircase go up and find the first door. This is where you'll have to find the quadra armed knight, each room has an anceint peice of armor. Sheild: Make it passed the bridge being pummeled with wind and walk into the huge mansion (of winds); proceed up the stairs. There is a chest that contains this massive worthless shield. Armor: When you arrive at the last floor of the ancient tower cross the bottom most bridge. There is a long staircase that goes down, find Serraks door and open it for this armor. _______________________ Chaos / Demon Armor set Chaos Shield: Find this in the Old Battlefields jail cell. Shadow Mask: Find this under one of the first snake carts you'll encounter in the egg mines. Demon Armor: Ancient city level 2, there is a door opposite the great graveyard. Enter and hunt for the forest folks chest containing this armor. Bone Hands: This is found in the well near Cecile Yeala. Return to the beginning of the game and drop down. Look for a secret submerged door containing a skeleton, kill it for the Bone Hands. Demon Legs: Find these in the Great Graveyard, second floor buried under a tombstone near the ledge. _________________ Crystal Armor set Arms/Shield/Greaves/Armor: Bought from Chad in the Treasury. Helmet: Found in a chest in the Treasury. Try the top floor. [Shields] Mammoth Shield: This is right above the engineers key. Go up the stairs above the drawbridge and find the door that leads to the stone rafters above the golems. You'll find this insanly huge shield. This shield is ultra heavy but good for non-magical battle. This shield is better than Lord Myu's in my opinion. Flame Shield: This shield is found in the iron refinery when you heat it up. Look for a secret door there ice previously blocked it. This is not too bad agaist fire attacks. ) e ( -----------------------------------------------\\ Accessories [Rings] Ring of Wisdom: You'll find this in the elemental room in the Treasury. Push the element stones on the wall in this order: earth, water, fire, wind. This ring lets you in the "your not kingly" room.
