 People ripping off my guide, whatcha gunna do...
 For starters I'm going to place their screen names,
 email addresses, web page addresses, and contact info
 on how to get them in trouble, unless they repent.

 Another Note! Big 'Oops' on my part. I was giving out my
 AOL instant messanger information but my program was set
 so no one could contact me. DOH! So, if you've tried to
 contact me and couldn't, please try again. I apologize
 for this oversight.
 No, I do not have any other instant messaging program.
 I'm not an AOL subscriber (I got a cable modem. BBA!).
 It's just that I feel the others try to do what AIM does
 and fail.
 AOL Instant Messager can be downloaded free from their
 website (http://www.aol.com).
 
 Authors Note: I was really trying to avoid this but it has
 come to my attention that a number of websites are posting
 this FAQ on their page without my permission.
 My personal stance on the subject is that, I really don't
 care as long as:
 a) This FAQ is posted UNchanged.
 b) I am notified of when and where the FAQ will be used.
 c) The most current version is used. This is available from
    nozedive13.com or you can email me asking to be sent the
    most current version.
 d) If I request that my FAQ be removed, please do so.
 I don't think these requests are unreasonable. Email
 regarding any questions. I thank anyone who makes a place
 in their website for my FAQ.

 Also, it should go without saying, that you can't use info
 from my FAQ for use on your own MAG FAQ. I'm not trying to
 'corner the market' or anything, but I hate to see rehashed
 information, especially when it's mine! If you'd like to see
 something done with the guide, please make a suggestion
 instead of putting your own spin on my guide and crediting
 me in a few words at the bottom somewhere.

 Subscribe to the MAG Guide! If you send me your email address,
 you can have a the latest version of the MAG Guide emailed to

 WHAT'S TO COME

 Specific info for MAG benefits.

 =================
 MAG EXPLINATION
 =================

 MAGs start out as a little drone that floats over your
 characters shoulder. They will help your character out
 more than you'll ever know. Everyone has a MAG and you
 should take care of yours.
 They add important stat bonuses to your character. 
 As you take damage their photon blast gauge fills (see
 upper left corner of screen). Your gauge will also fill
 as you deal damage. Special Photon Blasts can then be
 used which your MAG has learned through evolution.

 =================
 MAG EVOLUTION
 =================

 Your MAG will evolve as it gains levels. The way it
 evolves depends on what you have fed it. There are
 three major levels of MAG evolution. These evolutions
 take place at level 10, 35 and 50. When you complete
 a major evolution, you will gain a photon blast.
 There are particular photon blasts awarded for 
 evolving your MAG into specific forms.

 Your MAG will start out as a shape which you cannot
 change. I believe this form is the same for all
 characters and section ID's.
 At level 10 your MAG will take a unique appearance
 to your character type. You will get a different
 looking MAG for Force, Hunter, and Ranger.
 At level 35 your mag has the ability to evolve into
 3 different forms. This depends on which major stat
 is highest.
 At level 50 your MAG's evolution is based on the
 relation of the major stats to each other. There
 are up to six different combinations, but a couple
 combinations can yield the same results.
 Your MAG can change shape during the second or
 third level. Every five to ten levels your MAG is
 able to change if one of the factors of the
 evolution has changed.

 The major stats are power (POW), dexterity (DEX),
 and mind (MIND).

 MAG IMAGES!!!
 For pictures of the different forms of mag
 eovlutions, please use this address:

 From there, click on the MAGs name to see a
 small representation of that MAG.

 =================
 FEED YOUR MAG
 =================
 
 Below are some tables with how certain items 
 affect different MAGs.

 Your MAG will get hungry three to five minutes
 since its last feeding or since your game began.

 Item MAGs have special diets. I don't have any
 solid data on these just yet.

 =================
 WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
 =================

 You feed your MAG and colored bars grow and shrink.
 Fun to watch, but here's what it means. 

 First, there are stat boosters and MAG boosters.
 Your MAG gets personal bonuses with SYNC and IQ.
 These stats keep your MAG happy and allow it to
 give you bonuses at special times.

 There are four scenarios and four rewards. Most MAGs
 are different from each other and have different
 rewards for the different situations. I will narrow
 these down evenutally, but here's a quick list of 
 what you might happen and when it would happen:
 Situations: Entering a boss fight, filling Photon
 Blast guage, being reduced to below 10% HP, or
 Death.
 Rewards: Filling up HP, Invincibility, Shifta and
 Deband, Resurection (only after death, duh) 

 These stats are REALLY hard to manage while raising
 your MAG. My suggestion would be to worry about these
 when you've already fully raised your MAG.
 The higher your SYNC is, the faster your photon blast
 Gauge will fill.
 The higher your IQ is, the more likely a bonus will be
 to appear, and it will make the bonus last longer.
 SYNC will max at 120%
 IQ will max at 200

 The most important stats for a MAG are the bonuses
 give to you:
 DEF raises your defense, each level of defense
 translates to one defense point towards your
 base defense power (DFP)
 POW raises your attacking power, each level
 translates to two points towards your base
 attacking power (ATP)
 DEX raises your accuracy, each level translates
 to half a point towards your base attack
 accuracy (ATA)
 MIND raises your magic, each level translates
 to two points towards your base (MST)
 
 NOTE 1: MAGs will not raise a stat above your
 character's limit. So, if you've maxed out your stats
 with leveling and materials, a MAG becomes only useful
 for photon blasts and maybe a fashion statement.

 NOTE 2: Raising MIND will do nothing for an android
 since they can't learn magic.
 
 When a particular stat reaches 100 points, it will
 gain a level. You only get bonuses based on full
 levels and not points.
 
 Every time a stat gains a level, it adds to your
 MAG's level. Your MAG has a maximum level of 200. This
 means you better pump up a mag stat while you can.  
 Example:
 You will max out after having these stats:
 20 DEF / 125 POW / 30 DEX / 25 MIND
 If you wanted to give your MAG more of one stat and
 you're at 200, TOO BAD.
 
 Feeding your MAG an item that lowers the points of
 of a certain stat, will only delete the points on 
 that level. You cannot undo a level.

 =================
 RAISE YOUR MAG
 =================

 One of the most common questions I see on the gamefaqs
 message boards are, "What should I feed my MAG if I'm
 a (character type here)."
 
 Example 1
 So you're a ranger and you want your shots to be more
 accurate and be more damaging; pump up the POW and DEX.

 Example 2
 Force character? Pump up DEF for some much needed
 protection.

 Either your can add to your characters strengths or
 work on sme of their weaknesses. It's up to you.

 =================
 PHOTON BLASTS
 =================
 
 Mmm...Photon...;erm, heh. Photon Blasts are cool.
 They do A LOT of damage and can really help you
 out in a tough spot...assuming it's fully charged.

 A MAG can only learn three photon blasts so be
 careful not evolve it into something with a 
 lame blast. If your MAG evolves a fourth or
 fifth time, you will not get that MAGs photon
 blast. You are stuck with the first three you
 learn.

 Here's the list of which MAG learns what:

 Ashvinau, Kama, Sita, Bhirava, Marica,
 Marutah, Mitra, Garuda
 
 Pilla - Says that it only takes out flying
 enemies, but it actually beats the snot out
 of anything around you
 ---------------------------------------------
 Apsaras, Andhaka, Kalki, Soma,
 Durga, Nandin, Bana

 Estlla - Flipper 2099 will take out anything
 infront of you
 ---------------------------------------------
 Ila, Vayu, Kabanda, Kaitabha,
 Tapas, Naga, Namuci, Madhu

 Mylla & Youlla - Twins that cast shifta and
 deband...whoopie
 ---------------------------------------------
 Ushasu, Varaha, Kumara, Sumba,
 Surya, Naraka, Yaksa, Rudra

 Golla - Bullwinkle comes out of nowhere and
 hits one enemy for huge damage
 ---------------------------------------------
 Vritra

 Leilla - Casts resta...so why not just
 use resta?
 ---------------------------------------------
 Ravana, Ribhava, Varuna

 Farla - Snake winds around your character and
 hits everything around you

 =================
 WHO GETS WHAT AND WHEN?
 =================

 Only certain characters will get specific MAGs.
 So, like Pokemon, you would have to trade in order
 to get some MAGs. You must be of a certain character
 type (hunter, ranger, force) and a specific section i.d.

 Having your MAG evolve depends on a number of
 different factors. Normal MAGs will evolve based on
 level and alignment of stat boosters. 

 The three stat boosters used in all general MAG
 evolution are POW, DEX, and MIND.

 Section IDs:
 Your Section ID is located under your character type when
 you hit start. There are two groups of Section IDs who
 get the same MAGs per character type.

 Section IDs / Type A:
 VIRIDIA, SKYLY, PURPLENUM, REDRIA, YELLOWBOZE
 Section IDs / Type B:
 GREENILE, BLUEFULL, PINKAL, ORAN, WHITILL 

 ==GENERAL MAG EVOLUTION CHART==
 For all the evolutions below to work, your defense must
 be below 44. There are three MAG evolutions experienced by
 Force characters that only happen after a DEF level of 45
 and they are listed below. To our knowledge, they are the
 only exception.

 ==MAG ITEM EVOLUTION==

 There are certain items that can be found which will evolve
 MAGs if the conditions are just right. One basic condition
 is that the MAGs level must be over 100. These items are VERY
 rare. These evolutions will not give your MAG a new photon
 blast. You can use a MAG Item to evolve even if your MAG is
 level 200. Special MAGs have special diets. I hope they're
 all the same...NO MORE RESEARCH! AH!

 MAG items can be found in small green boxes.

 Yet to figure out: Can you use a MAG Item on a MAG Itemed
 MAG?  ^_^  Will it turn into SUPER MAG?! 

 MAG Name    | MAG Item            | Section ID
 ------------+---------------------+------------------------
 Soniti      | Cell of MAG 502     |     A
 ------------+---------------------+------------------------

 ------------+---------------------+------------------------

 Chao        | Heart of Chao       |  BOTH + ALL  35
 ------------+---------------------+------------------------
 Robo Chao   | Parts of RoboChao   |  BOTH + 2 STATS  70

 Note: I'm still working on correct names for special MAGs
 and items for evolutions.

 Rumor: I could be wrong, but I don't think there's a Sonic
 MAG. There have been rumors flying all around about this.
 The japanese translation for the Soniti MAG is Sonichi.
 Since the word 'Sonic' is in the spoken translation this
 may have been confused. 

 SPECIAL NOTE: There is a new version of PSO coming out
 that contains all kinds of extras. Some of these are more
 MAGs! Some that have been discussed; every system
 SEGA has ever created. Whether or not their portable
 sytems will be available as MAGs, has yet to be
 disclosed. One of the pics of the new PSOv2 has the 
 SEGA Master System on the back of a HUcast. Cool!
 * Confirmed systems so far: Master System, Genesis, Saturn
 and Dreamcast.

 =================
 ABILITIES
 =================

 Every MAG has special abilities. These happen in crisis
 situations. I have listed the MAGs in alphabetical order
 and sorted their powers by condition.
 Note: A MAG is not guarunteed to use it's ability. You
 can raise the rate of occurance by raising it's IQ.

 § = Invincibility
 ^ = Shifta + Deband

 =================
 TRICKS
 =================
  
 Well, right now they're really aren't any true tricks, just
 little things you might not know

 - SYNC TRICK
 When you continue your game you MAG will start out with 5% less
 SYNC than when you quit. To keep this from happening, store your
 MAG with the bank lady.
 * Yeah, I know, big whoop.

 - GETTING ANOTHER MAG
 So you've lost your MAG? Or you just want a new one? Well look
 no further than high level boxes! Yes, you can find an extra MAG
 in a box. I found one in the mines on normal. They are contained
 in small blue boxes.
 * With extra MAG(s) in your inventory, you can raise more than one
 at a time for different purposes

 - MAG COLORS
 A MAG will have detail colors which match the color of the
 original owner. 
 * If I traded my kama who has red details, it will still be red.
 It will even keep that color through evolutions.

 - RANDOM COLORS
 If your character uses one of the hidden costume colors, there
 is not an official MAG color to match. Therefor, the MAG color
 will be randomly assigned.
 * These hidden costmes are built into the game, why wouldn't
 there be MAG detail colors to match? 

 - REACH YOUR QUOTA
 Certain weapons, spells, etc. have requirements you have to
 meet in order to use them. Since your mag adds to your stats
 you can pump up your MAG to help you reach these quotas.
 * Using a pumped up mag, you could use some pretty powerful
 wepaons/spells at really low levels. Perfect for making a
 second character! 

 - FIND A MAG CELL!
 Mag cells 213 and 502 are reportedly only available in the
 forest on vhard. You can get these from Al Rappy which is 
 a blue Rag Rappy.
 *This is not the only thing an Al Rappy
 will drop, they can also drop a whole slew of crappy items.
 Or so I have been told because I have still, NEVER seen one.
 **It's possible to find a Al Rappy during Quests and Online.
 So, try "Fake in Yellow".

 Frequently Asked Questions
 =================

 Below I've listed the answers to some questions which I think
 everyone can learn from.

 Question: "If my MAG evolves into a form whose photon blast
 is the same as the previous form, can my MAG still learn a
 third photon blast?"
 Example: I'm a Ranger and my Mitra learned the photon blast
 Pilla. I then had my MAG evolve into Bhirava which also
 learns Pilla. Can it still learn a third blast?
 Answer: Your MAG can still learn a third blast, but not if
 it stays as Bhirava. You must change it from Bhirava into
 another MAG by switching the stat alignment before your MAG
 can no longer evolve.

 Question: "I've noticed that there are force evolutions that
 are obtained when the DEF level is above 50. If I were trying
 to learn a photon blast from that particular MAG, how could
 that be accomplished?"
 Explination: If the DEF level is 45 or above, your MAG is 
 definatly past level 50. It has already changed into it's
 third form and could have learned three photon blasts.
 Answer: If you make your third MAG evolution into a MAG
 with the same blast as the second, then you will still have
 a space for that third blast.

 Question: "I've heard about MAGs with levels above 200, how
 would one do this?"
 Answer: Various cheating devices alter the game in ways that
 I'm sure no one notices immediatly.

 Question: "Which MAG is the best?"
 Answer: Well that would depend on what you meant exactally.
 A MAG is only as good as you make it. As far as special
 bonuses go, it's all what you like. So, in my opinion,
 there's no 'best MAG'.

 Question: "What if there are two stats with the same level
 at time of evolution?"
 Answer: The best way to answer this is; OH MY GOD!
 LOOK BEHIND YOU! *nozedive runs away while you're distracted*

 Question: "How long did it take you to write this guide?" 
 Answer: I wasn't keeping track. A while. ^_^

 Question: "Where did you get all this information from?"
 Answer: ...must I hit you? Look under "credits". durr.

 Question: "Blah, Blah, Blah...*something not about MAGs*"
 Answer: This is a MAG Guide. If you would like to ask
 other questions about Phantasy Star Online, please visit

 remember what my hunters MAG is...
