INTRODUCTION -------------- If you don't know what Legend Of Mana is, then why are you reading this FAQ? The Legend Of Mana is a ridiculously addictive RPG, put out by Squaresoft. This game is the fourth in the Seiken Densetsu (as in Secret Of Mana, etc.) series. It may be more 'childlike' in appearance than the other games, but it is not in the least easy. This game is fun, challenging, and pleasantly engaging for people of all ages. In the game, you not only can place lands and such to gain the adventures, but you can (as the game progresses) create weapons and armor, build your own golems, play mini-games, raise produce, and hatch and care for your own pet monsters. This mini-FAQ, of course, is about the last two. WHY THE MINI-FAQ? ------------------ While I've managed to find information on pets here and there on the web, I've yet to find a good FAQ on how to raise, care for, fight with, etc. them. Therefore, I decided that if I'm going to gather the information into one file for myself, that I may as well set it up into something that more folks can use. While many people prefer the golems for their power and their abilities, I actually like getting out monsters and playing with them, as well as raising them. Also, a well-raised monster can garner some good money, if you're in the need for a few bucks to make that perfect sword (check out the tempering FAQs, and you'll see how much money you can need for such things!). Also, there are things that the pets can do that no golem (at least, none I've found) can do. For instance: the extra XP given by an imp. Or the 'rare item' trick that the Polter Boxes can bring you. These things alone make the pets worthwhile. Besides, the pets are a lot of fun to raise and work with. EGG LOCATIONS -------------- The eggs are always found in the same areas of the game. These spots are usually an ex-boss area, though a few areas anything in particular. Each area holds one particular type of egg, and each one can possibly give any of the monsters. The mana levels, or the distance from your house, seems to have an effect on what pops up there. NOTE: The suggestion of distance and mana levels is just conjecture, at the moment, based on the fact that I've yet to find a Tyrannos egg in either of the two reptile areas, and both of them are right beside my home (where I placed the mailbox). The same with the Chimera Beast. Can anyone confirm or deny this for me? I'd be most appreciative. NOTE 2 (added 11/09/00): I have finally managed to find both a Chimera Beast and Tyranno egg, both within the same day (in fact, both within an hour of one another or so). However, I was unable to find them previously after well over an hour of searching the areas for them. Is this a matter of luck (the fact I had a Polter Box with me, rather than a Basilisk), a matter of the Mana Levels (the fact that I had more locations on the grid), or simply a matter of chance happening? I'm still not certain how the egg generation works. The names in brackets are room descriptions, rather than proper names. Any of the names outside the brackets are the room's technical name (the one that shows up on your screen), if it has one. Location | Section | Type -------------------------------------------------------------------- Bone Fortress | Throne Of Corpses (Jajara's Room) | Undead Fieg Snowfields | Queen Altena's Hill | Dragon Gato Grottoes | Meditatiom Room (Gato Caves) | Morph Jungle | (Forest of the faeries, Punkmaster room) | Demonic Jungle | Spring Of Beasts (Du'cate room) | Plant Junkyard | Heap Of Junk (Gremlin Room) | Poltregeist Lake Kilma | Eastern Shore (far northwest dead-end) | Beast Lake Kilma | (southeast dead-end in the wood) | Plant Luon Highway | Lorant Tableland (Mantis Ant room) | Aerial Luon Highway | (Chobin Hood Caves, Gigarex room) | Reptile Mekiv Caverns | Underground Level Two (Behind Boink) | Oddity Mekiv Caverns | Stalagmite Cavern (Du'inke Room) | Reptile Madora Beach | Eastend Beach | Aquatic Madora Beach | (Fullmetal Haggar room) | Morph Norn Peaks | (Cliff across from Akaravar's Room) | Aerial Norn Peaks | Land Of The Clouds (first Windcaller Room) | Arthropod S. S. Buccaneer | (Bulkhead, very back room) | Aquatic Tower Of Lourdes | 11th Floor: Room Of Fate | Poltregeist Ulkan Mines | Underground Level 2 (Labanne room) | Oddity White Forest | (Hegs Ant room) | Beast NOTE: I've seen several mentions on-line about there being an egg situated in the Mindas Ruins area. I've never been able to find it. If anyone has been able to find an egg in this area at all, I would greatly appreciate the information on where the section is hidden, and what you can pull up there. Also, if there are any others I've missed, please tell me where they are and what sort of eggs you can get there. DEMI-HUMANS ------------ These sneaky little critters can't be found in eggs. Each one is found as-is, fully-grown and named, in a certain area, when the mana levels in that section reach a certain level. There is only one of each type, and they sell for 10g, no matter what the age, power, etc. they are. However, as pets, they're well worth the trouble to find, due to their power, special abilities, and just plain coolness value. Monster | Location | Mana Level ------------------------------------------- Chobin Hood | Jungle | Dryad 3 Goblin | Lumina (city) | Shade 3 (and dryad 3 as well?) Mad Mallard | Lake Kilma | Wisp 3 Narcissos | Junkyard | Gnome 3 Sahagin | Desert | Dryad 3 Succubus | Fieg Snowfield | Shade 3 Tomato Man | Norn Peaks | Salamander 3 Exact locations: Chobin hood: Somewhat South of the faerie's territory, wandering around near a jungle fork. Goblin: Lumina's 'Morning Moon Alley'. The alleyway northeast of the bar. Mad Mallard: The first fork other than the entrance. Narcissos: The entrance of the junkyard. You need to go through the upper path at the entrance, then return. Sahagin: After completing the sub-quest 'The Wimpy Thugling', you find him in the fork just beyond the entrance. Succubus: The large field, just below the save point. Tomato Man: The foot of Norn Peaks. To get these monsters, just make sure you haven't got a pet along with you, and talk to the demi-human walking around. They will join you as a pet, and from then on are treated like any normal pet (i.e. they can be fed, levelled, grazed, sold, etc.) CATCHING EGGS ------------- While this is explained in the game, catching your eggs is important to the actual getting of your pets. Therefore, I figure I may as well put the info down here, as well, just for the ease of people playing. There are two ways to catch an egg. The first way is to feed them until they fall asleep. To do this, just drop pieces of meat or produce around (up to four at a time), and stay out of the monster's field of view (as shown by the direction it's walking and the direction of the arrows above its head). Eventually, it will face one of the foods and go running up to it to eat it. Once it's eaten, it will either continue to wander (upon which time you need to let it eat again) or a little 'z' will start appearing above its head. That's when you run up to it and catch it. Eggs will eat a maximum of two items before they fall asleep, and it sometimes only takes one. NOTE: Dragon eggs and poltregeist eggs are picky, eating only produce, rather than meat. In addition, several eggs will not eat rotton meat. If they dislike the food, a little 'X' will appear in the balloon, rather than a heart. If that happens, better change to something else. The second way to catch an egg is to outwit it. This is harder, but it saves on meat and produce. All you have to do is walk around behind the egg, keeping out of its line of 'sight' until the balloon above its head turns from arrows into a blank space, or a space with '...' in it. Then, you just run up and catch it, as though it were sleeping after eating. This can be difficult, but I find it a lot of fun to try. NOTE: Some eggs (particularly aquatic and poltregeist) are quite fast, and therefore hard to follow. In addition, oddity eggs and poltregeist eggs are the same on all sides, making it hard to tell which way they're facing. In fact, it's a lot easier to try catching poltregeist eggs by food (because of their speed, erratic movements, and the facing problem) than following them around for a while. EGGLIST ---------- Alright. So you've finally managed to catch that elusive egg. Now, what sort of egg do you have? Well, you can just let it hatch, and wait to see from there. But what happens if you've already got a full stable, and want to decide which egg to discard for the one you just caught? Well, here's the list of the egg-stats and costs, for those of you who're hunters. Remember: all eggs sell for 10g, if you simply sell them right off the field instead of out of your stable. NOTE: These stats also hold true for the newly-hatched monster inside.

NOTE: This is still in the works, as of yet. If there's one I haven't got the info for, and you do, don't hesitate to send it in.

These will go up as the monster levels, and as you feed it different things. A list of how these numbers go up is listed in the 'Monster By Monster' section (COMING SOON!) SYNCHRO EFFECTS ---------------- When you and your pet are close enough together, a line of what looks like electricity will join the jewels, near your life bars. This is what is called Synchro Effect. The creatures gain the benifit of your HP Recovery effect, while you end up reaping the benifit of theirs, whatever it may be. This also counts for NPCs who are close enough to the monsters to be effected by their Synchro.

COMING SOON! PRODUCE --------- For the most part, when monsters level, they gain stats depending on what sort of creature they are. However, their stats can also be adjusted with the use of different produce. Each level, the monster will eat whatever is in its feedbox (even if it isn't at the farm) and will gain (or lose) in the stats that produce offers. Each monster can eat up to three pieces of produce per level. Produce by color: Red Orange Yellow --- ------ ------ Apricat Spiny Carrot Citrisquid Diceberry Loquat-shoes Springanana Peach Puppy Bumpkin Cornflower Applesocks Honey Onion Fishy Fruit Whalmato Orange'opus Rocket Papaya Green Blue Purple ----- ---- ------ Cabbadillo Heart Mint Sweet Moai Squalphin Spade Basil Lillipods Needlettuce Pine o'Clock Cherry Bombs Boarmelon Gold Clover Orcaplant Dialaurel Rhinoloupe Bellgrapes White Black ----- ----- Garlicrown Mush-in-the-box Conchurnip Toadstoolshed Pear o' Heels Mangolephant Masked Potato PRODUCE AND STATS ------------------- The stats are mentioned in the 'produce' encyclopoedia, but are reproduced here for ease of reading. Note: I don't yet have the exact numbers the produce gives, but the general stat gains and losses are on the chart below. NOTE: These are the numbers as the game gives them. However, there have been findings that suggest that these numbers may not be completely accurate. Hopefully, there'll be some corrections here, if this is the case. Abbreviations: CHM: Charm (affects the effectiveness of the monster's status attacks) DEF: Defense (the physical defense and 'armor' of the monster) HP: Hit Points (the monster's physical hit points and poison defense) LCK: Luck (supposedly affects the finding of rare items, eggs, and spirits) MGC: Magic (defense against raw magical attacks) POW: Power (the monster's raw strength for pwer attacks) SKL: Skill (the monster's finesse and technical attacks) SPR: Spirit (defense against status-affecting magics, like paralysis) +/-: The more of these, the greater degree the gain/loss is. RESIST: Apparently, certain foods offer some resistances to attacks, as well as numbers in stats. This is the resistance it offers, with the + and - showing the degree it gives.

Since I'm not certain which is true, I'll leave these up for now until I've done some personal experimenting. Also, where I have no information, I have left the stats blank, just in case. PLEASE NOTE: There was no information for the Mangolephant listed in this chart, but whether that's an omission within the book or the webpage, I'm not certain. I'll eventually get around to checking the exact additions and subtractions of the produce. PERSONALITIES -------------- In addition to raising the monster's stats, different produce gives different personalities. Each one of these is rated in a similar way to the stats, although the actual numbers for them are hidden. The only way you can tell your monster's personality is to pet them while they are grazing at the barn. However, you can also get an idea of a monster's personality by the way they act in battle. There are both good and bad monster traits. The 'good' traits make your monster more effective in battle, while the bad ones make them... well... less effective. According to Matthew Emirzian's Mastery Guide, the personalities are as follows: CLM=Calm LON=Lonely IND=Indecisive FRI=Frendly LAZ=Lazy ARR=Arrogant AGG=Aggressive SCH=Scheming Bad Traits: Lazy - Your monster does almost nothing in battle. Arrogant - Your monster rushes head first into battle. Lonely - Your monster will cling to you in battle. Scheming - Your monster will stay away from the battle and generally avoid fighting. Good Traits: Calm - Your monster attacks strategically instead of blindly. Aggressive - Your monster will concentrate on one opponent instead of wandering around attacking stupidly. Friendly - Your monster will help you in attacking an opponent, and will follow you in the battlefield towards an enemy. NOTE: I haven't yet done any full experiments on the attitudes of the monsters, yet. However, I suspect that there are four 'good' traits, and four 'bad' traits that a monster can get. If this is the case, then where does 'indecisive' fit in? And if it's a negative trait, then which of the abovementioned traits are positive? If anyone can answer these questions, please do!

This meat can also be used to catch eggs, along with produce. Finally! I have some information what meats do! This short list is directly from the translated Ultimania guide, C.O. Albatross. As of yet, these are all I've got, but hopefully there'll be more coming. If you have anything to add, then please feel free! Meat | Plus | Minus | Personality | Resist ------------------------------------------------- Animal | POW SKL | DEF MGC | | Slash Bug | SKL SPR | POW CHM | | Magic Lizard | DEF CHM | MGC SPR | | Pierce SEEDS AND PLANTING ------------------ The seeds that you plant have a direct link with the produce you get. However, so does the day that the seeds are planted, and, I suspect, the mana levels of the orchard/Trent, itself. For instance: a crooked (red) seed, will almost always grow red produce, and will grow rarer and/or more red, if the day is Salamander, and the Salamander level of the orchard is high (a good reason to put the Mana Tree right next to your orchard!). Red fruits are Salamander, Blue are Undine, and Green are Dryad. White and Black are Wisp and Shade, respectively, though neither of them have a day attributed to them. I'm not yet positive of the other colors, but I believe each one has a corresponding day. Mixing seed colors acts like mixing paint does. For instance: a red (crooked) and blue (round) seed planted together has chances of growing red, blue, or purple fruit. Likewise, if a yellow (oblong) and a red (crooked) seed are planted, you have a good chance at getting orange fruit, as well as the red and yellow stuff. If a green (big), orange (small) or long (purple) seed are planted together, you will sometimes get black fruit as well as the other colors (always a Mush-In-The-Box, in my personal experience). Planting a spiny seed (rainbow color) results in a random growing of fruits, almost always rare, according to the day and mana level of the place. This is probably the easiest way to get rare fruits, even with the rareness of spiny seeds in general. Also, planting a spiny seed and the seed of the color you're wanting (crooked seed for rare red produce, round seed for rare blue, etc.) gives a much better chance of getting rare fruit of the kind you're looking for, particularly if it's planted on the day of the fruit's spirit. Toadstoolsheds! One of the most-hunted fruits, due to the multitude of stat-gains, and the complete lack of any losses they give. However, these are also the rarest of the fruits, and it's nearly impossible to get them. According to Aaron Ramussa: I've still not gotten a Toadstoolshed. I remember reading once that a Big seed Spiny seed combo has a 2% chance of making them. In my own personal plantings, I once recieved one with a spiny seed/long seed combination (though I wasn't aware of the days), and with low mana levels at my home. However, I've yet to have it happen again, and thus am still hunting for a way to get these fruit with a more regular planting. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting them? Or perhaps a specific 'recipe' for growing? ADDED NOTE: A planting of a spiny seed and a long seed has once again produced a toadstoolshed in my game, though once again: I forgot to note down the day. Stupid me. However, it seems that once again, that combination is proving to be the most 'prolific' with the rare fruit.
