Hi to everyone, thanks for reading my walkthrough of Eternal Arkadia.

I despaired because i have played all the potential RPG of the dream from Evolution to Napple Tale and each time i was disapointed by the RPG part in those games. Well, i have wait specially the english translation to be sure that i won't miss the storyline. It's incredible. The game is exactly what i expected from sega and even more. Since i have played a long series of RPG on other SEGA machines i have find here a mix of most of them. (Story of Thor, Shining Force, Phantasy Star, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Lunar and even a little of Final Fantasy for the design of some people unfortunately). This time Sega gives all he had to create the best RPG ever made. My absolute reference was Lunar Eternal Blue on SEGA CD and now i change for Eternal Arkadia on Dreamcast. What can i say about the presentation, well it's full of cinematics. There aren't any FMV here. Fortunately the cinematics are excellent and numerous. I regret that Sega didn't include a song in the game but maybe next time. The graphics are incredible. They are various and full of color. The brightness effects are too numerous to talk about each one and they are all wonderful. It's a pleasure for eyes. The character design at the beginning seems to recall Final Fantasy, especially Alfonso and his style of army but that fact change rapidly. The design is new however,Sega refuses to use the same as in Phantasy Star for example. This design reminds me Napple Tale in more serious and with a better work. The decor are really various, you can visit a giant map in the sky and then an island and a dungeon. The monsters of each dungeon are different. Last i cannot end this part without talking of the skills. Like in Phantasy Star 4 they are impressive but this time, Sega uses the same engine as in SHINING FORCE 3 scenario 3. The Cutlass Fury or the Alpha Storm are perfect examples. Like in Streets of Rage 3, even the monsters and Boss have their own fury. The animation is in full 3D. You can rotate the decor like in Grandia and you can even search in a first person view like in The Ring. The skill are well animated and the background is really excellent. I was surprised by the animation of the boat. It's slow and awful not in 60 images per second like i expected but i discover that it depends of the engine you have and that's where Sega corrected the error. I have appreciated that we can use ladder and not only see a poor cut scene like in Code Veronica, also in some dungeon you can play a remake of tomb raiders or use some plateform. Switch are also of the fest. The dungeon follow the classical rules of the " there is only one way out ". If you find an isolated room or multiway, it's just to reach a chest and a treasure. The sound is ... ultra cool !!!!. Sega creates a real RPG atmosphear and think that while i'm writing this i have the music of the battle in my head and even some town or dungeon music. I have a little regret for the music of the boss but Sega includes something i love : The music changes depending on your situation exactly like in Langrisser 3. The music pass from Danger, equal, advantage and extreme danger when the hero will die soon. (Near the end of the game a real music for the boss and for the last boss appears and they are very very cool update 1.5). The english voices suprised me. It seems that for the very first time, Sega made a casting. Like in Shenmue you have good voice acting. In Eternal Arkadia it's limited to some AH AH or LET'S GO but it brings life to the game and it's pleasant to hear. The maniability is cool, the interface is simple and all menu are clear. At the beginning the battles with your boat are difficult but a tutorial helps you and then air battle turn into strategy. On the contrary of what i though at the beginning it's completely different from Panzer Dragoon Saga and it's more exciting. Remember Albator and the pirates rules, they are all respected here. I simply regret that i can't increase the speed of my character in the city but what's done is sufficient. What's really disapointed me was the english instruction manual. It's the half of the japanese one. NO STORY, NO CHARACTER INTRODUCTION, NO ENNEMY, NO BOSS, NO PLACE TO VISIT. Are we barbarian ? NOOOOOOOO. I have read the japanese manual and it seems but it's not sure that there are more than Pinta's quest for the mini game. And i don't know if it was removed or change. ( in fact i don't find anywhere the pinta quest in the japanese manual). The game is full of secrets and discoveries to make (Evolution 1 and 2) and it's good to see that Sega didn't forget this point for the lovers of exploration like me. In one game, Sega changes my mind about RPG, you can think that this game is simply a mix but there are tons of originality like to win magic you must choose the proper color for example. It's a good lesson for Square and his poor Final Fantasy episode and unfortunately for Game Arts which i blame to not create a LUNAR 3 for Sega. I can't imagine what will be Phantasy Star On Line and a possible Shining Force 3 scenario 3.2 Sega promised in the past but i'm sure that they will be best than this one and i can't wait, i want them now. Eternal Arkadia is the best RPG ever made and like we say in french : CONSOLE DISE ! . PRESENTATION : 17/20 GRAPHICS : 19/20 ANIMATION : 19/20 SOUND : 18/20 MANIABILITY : 18/20 INTEREST : 20/20 FINAL NOTE : 99% ADK. 2 STORYLINE AND CAST OF CHARACTER : The world of Arkadia is full of island floating up the sky. What's sure, according to old tale that grand parents talked to young, is that there was a silver civilization that bring joy and peace. Nobody knows exatly how the world turn into this ashes of island because the legend have no foundation. Many people believe in the power of the moon and the world is divided in six religions depending on the color of the moon stones. This world exist due to the help of moon stones that fall from the silver star (ask to Game Arts about the silver civilization ... hey it's a joke come back). Moon stone are used to power boat and army. This world is rule in the way of military by the Imperial Army of Valua. The terrific Lord Galcian, supreme commander of the air force of Valua, makes fear to everyone in the name of empress Theodora. A great war happened between Valua and Nasr and the winner was Valua. The Nasr kingdom rules the economy. Due to the alliance, the peace is now real. Around these people wing the Black Pirates who lives to steal to everyone and the Blue Rogue. The story begins with Vyse, son of Captain Dyne (Lunar... hi hi joke) leader of blue pirate, who steals to the rich to help the poor. The arrival of Fina (heroine of grandia 2, ...ok i stop that) will change all his destiny. Fina the mysterious girl who appeared from nowhere. The thread of destiny awaits you hero, play Vyse and takes real decisions, give full orders to a crew and maybe you'll have a chance to save the world from the imperial family... VYSE : Son of captain Dyne, Vyse is a real good fighter. The Cutlass Fury saves him more than one once. His interest for Fina is not really clear but what's sure is that he likes so much Aika and cannot leave without her near him. AIKA : Under a style of missed boy is a cool character with true feelings in her heart. Listen to her quietly before to take a decision. Her skills are various and she has a good magic power. She is more a fighter than a healer. DRACHMA : This old man chase a giant fish called Rhacknam. Nobody knows why or when it's began but he wants to kill him. I personally never trust him and what he did in the game didn't surprised me but i must admit that he is a strong fighter and without him Vyse is a bit lost. FINA : She is a descendant of the silver civilization. She comes in Arkadia to search for the five colored moon crystals. She wants to avoid a second cataclysm. But so far, anyone remember of the first. You must help her if you want to discover the truth about your world. GILDER : Is the Don Juan of the game. He lives for two things, 1 meet a new woman each day and 2 escape from his true love Clara. He doesn't want to admit it but he loves her so much. Don't underestimate this guy, he is really strong. (Update 1.3) ENRIQUE : is the prince of Valua. As he cannot convince his mother to stop the war he joins the air pirate to save the world. Enrique is the best fourth party member you can dream. It's a real brute. (Update 1.3) EMPRESS THEODORA : She rules with a strong and cold hand the empire. She wants the six moonstones to conquer the world. Can anyone stopped that old girl ? LORD GALCIAN : (he reminds me the chief of the army in Grandia 1 but i have promised to stop my references) The terrific commander of the Valua army have no rival. No one can oppose him without risking his life. He rules the fifth fleet of Valua and have a strange interest in Ramirez. ALFONSO : is a traitor and a poor admiral. Beware of that guy because his role is not really clear for the moment. His role is to be the most stupid soldier of the valua army. (update of 1.2). RAMIREZ : is the lieutenant of Galcian. He obtains a promotion in the game and become an admiral. Ramirez seems to have a link with Fina. He is of the silver civilization like Fina. BELLEZA : Is the spy of the army. She knows everything in the kingdom and there's no secret for her. When i hear how she speaks i think she trust to much in Theodora. She is clearly a fool to think that unificated the power bring peace and order, but the world needs dreamer like her to exist. DE LOCO : is the commander of the green fleet. That guy has a real problem with Vyse and the reality. He thinks too much, invent dangerous thing and is too stupid to admit that he has lost. How can someone like this could be a general ? (update of 1.2). VIGORO : is the most macho man a girl can meet. He lives only to conquer the heart of all of these cute ladies. Aika knows of it a bit. (update 1.3) GREGORIO : Commander of the second fleet, Gregorio like so much the prince. However you must beat him in battle if you want to continue the quest. (Update 1.3) BALTOR : is the chief of Black pirates. You fight him only two times. Too bad that the black pirates haven't a better place in the story. They are so funny when they lose... CLARA : it's Gilder true love. This girl is really funny. (update 1.5) PRINCE DAIGO : Is the son of the ruler of Yafutoma and also the leader of the Tenkou Army. (update 1.5) 3 BASIC BATTLE STRATEGY : Normal battles : 1 you must use all the skills to win. For example, when Vyse is surrounded by ennemy, if you use COUNTERSTRIKE, you can be sure that every ennemy will received a normal hit and not a normal counterstrike (half of the normal hit except if you give all the power up to Vyse). 2 heal your party with potion instead of spell, keep your MP for strong magic. 3 Of course if you choose the proper color on a certain monster you will kill him rapidly, but during the course of the game, it's better to give a different color to every members so all the magic can be learn by everyone. I think it's better than specialize a fighter in certain color. 4 For the boss, there's no real technic, the issue depends of the skills you use at a certain moment. 5 Press B repetively when an ennemy hit you, it increases the chance to counter attack (like in Shining Force 3 on Saturn). SHIP BATTLE : 1 Unfortunately, when you take a decision if it's not the good one you'll run to a game over. When you continue you begin at the same point as in the first time you try. You haven't win exp but also NEVER lose an item. 2 the tutorial explain it, but when you see a C you must concentrate your firepower in this turn to increase the damage. When it's yellow or red you must keep your guard, even if it's not good each time. When you see a special sign you can use the special attack. 3 Those battle are long, so be sure you have the time to play them or you'll load it the next time you play. I think that's all because the rest is up to you. What will be the greatest RPG if i say all what must say. 4 IMPORTANT ITEMS : Moon Berries : with those moons you can learn new skills. Zivilyn Bane items : In some dungeon you will meet a special fighter, Zivilyn Bane that guards expensive and strange items. You can sell them to obtain money. (update 1.5) Cham : it's Cupil food. I give the location of each i found but maybe there are more. Abirik Cham : Cupil gain a level by eating one. (update 1.3) Chom : Don't give them to Cupil. (update 1.3) In fact they are here to mix differently the cham and abirik cham so Cupil can evolve differently. The evolution is so cool with different ways but it's too bad that Final Cupil appears only in the last dungeon. There are 30 chams to find in this walkthrough and in the game. (update 1.5) Piry Box : This box cast Piry (a melee magic). This box can be used more than one once on the contrary of other box. So if you need magic for free... Captain's Stripe : Give more hp to your current boat. But don't forget to heal each time your boat eat one of these medal. Repair Kit and other upgrade version : Heals the boat. Sacri/Sacres etc crystals : Heal you. Sacrum Crystal : heal 1000 HP of all the party member. Daccat's Coin : sell it for 20 000 gold to the guildmaster of any town. Cool. Polly Special : Fish 10 grules near Dark rift exit to obtain it from Polly. Ilchimix : upgrade Ilchimis's shop and he sells it to you for 4000 gold. 5 THE SWASH BUCKLER : (update 1.3) Just a word about this. It's your popularity in the game. You can check it by reading your title in the menu. It increases when you make a good decision and of course decrease if not. It also decrease if you run from a battle too many times. Conclusion : Fight to increase it. When it's high, people in the party makes a lot of critical hit. 6 GENERALITY : In the sky, with each boat you can fish. when you see a band of fish, approach and press A to capture them. You can sell them. Some fish cost a lot even if it's wrong at the beginning of the game. Your battery in the VMU lose its power quickly if you don't find quickly a cham. Also it seems that all animations of Cupil eat the battery power. You need money ? search the discoveries before the guild give the hint. You will obtain a lot of money. 7 CREW MEMBER UTILITY : POLLY (cook) can restore one character MP. Find her in the tavern of Sailor's island. MARCO (sailor) can double the number of SP for the next turn. Cool to use a moon stone cannon. You find him in the Delphinus.

DOMINGO (look out) if you have 30 discoveries you can recruit him in Gordo's bar in north ocean. He increases the chance of critical hit. BRABHAM : power up the Delphinus.

Hans comes after you saved Yafutoma. DON : (helmsman) increases the dodge %. ILCHIMYS : (artisan). After you can go above the cloud, visit his house and ask him to join. He refuses. Later come and ask again (the text has changed) and be sure that Vyse has the Riselem spell and he joins you. RYU KAN : (artisan) This guy lives on an island north of Yafutoma. To recruit him you must be Vyse the Daring minimum. Then if you bring Velorium to him after he upgrades his shop, he will forge the best blade for Vyse. Ryu Kan increases ship's attack and defense for a short period of time. ROBINSON : (sailor) This guy is actually the husband of Polly. He was lost in the dark rift and it's there where you will find him. He reduces SP cost for actions in a turn. POW: (jester) this dog can be recruit at Pirate's Isle by talking to him.

Then she can upgrade the house in Crescent Isle and add some fish in the pond. uses her in battle to completely heal the boat. URALA : (cook) After you recruit Kirala, her sister, she will come with you. (talk to her at the restaurant of Yafutoma you can reach with a boat.) She is the best : she fill to the max you SP gauge (well if you focus two or three times after her in fact). That's all for the crew; I've got them all. 8 WALKTHROUGH FOR CD 1 : The game begin in action by a short cinematic and a first battle between Vyse Aika and two soldiers. It's time to Focus and experiment the incredible Cutlass Fury of Vyse. Then after another scene you will play a second battle against four soldiers. Then you'll visit the first dungeon of the game. VALUA IMPERIAL SHIP : Take the chest here. You can now go in the corridor and arrive in a room with two floors. Go upstairs after the battle. In the new corridor you find a chest then go right because the door is blocked. Use the ladder and you find Alfonso betrayed his own vice captain. Then he charges Antonio to kill you.

Talk to Captain Dyne and then you'll take the command of the ship. Your mission is to go to Pirate Isle. Go straight, it's simple. During your trip you'll maybe encounter monsters, if so don't worry, if the battle is long it's normal. Near Pirate Isle push A to land. Scene. You are now in the underground. Dyne calls you and Fina. Go as up as possible and find Dyne's office. During the dialogue choose to answer 2 to increase you popularity (you hear a sound). Then you can begin to talk to everyone. Just before you leave the office, click on the bookshelf a first time, then a second to discover a secret passageway. Use a ladder and take the chest. Then visit house per house from the top to the base. Equip yourself and Aika if you can and buy some Sacri crystal. By talking to the guy on the top of the pole , near the exit you'll learn that there is a second chest to find in this cave. Now exit to the city. Here you'll meet lot of people. Aika left the team. You can play with the child and find them : Jimmy is hide behind a white sheet, Lindsy is near your house, Pow the dog is also near your house and Alan is near Aika's house. Then Jimmy talk of the bookshelf in Dyne's office (but don't think that i need this to find the secret, it's very classical). If you want to laugh, click on the Handkerschief on Aika's house. Enter the garden to collect an item. Near Vyse's house is a stone : click on it to find a secret way to the second chest. Use the moonberry to learn new skill. Enter your house and Aika comes.

On the morning talk to Vyse's mother to obtain items and to Dyne to obtain a new color of stone for battle. Exit and save before you take off. To take off search the only part you haven't visited with the vice captain near your boat. Then you take the boat to go to shrine island. Go north until you meet the island. Click on it to land. SHRINE ISLAND : 1 : Enter the dungeon... 2 : Go right and exit. Put the crystal in the hole to see a scene. On your right is a chest.

Take your boat and go home.Now go to Dyne's office to talk to your mother. Choose to rest first and then save the other members. Personnaly i found strange that your mother let you leave the island with a poor boat (if it was my mother she never lets me leave the island with poor equipment to save my father...) Buy a lot of Sacri crystal and then take off to the north east. When you see a fog, a giant arc whale attacks you. Choose to retreat (answer 2) but it's useless and the boat is destroy. You awake and meet Drachma who saved you from the death. He wants you to take him two box. Go downstair take the box and look at the scene.

Then you'll chase Marco in a mini game, you must jump from roof to roof by using the yellow arrow. After the scene, save and prepare for the next dungeon. Go to the sewer entrance where you find Marco. SEWER : I hope that you have a lot of sacri crystal and sacres crystal with you. 1 : Go straight and take the ladder. Go left and climb the stair. 2 : When you have a choice go left to take a chest in an isolated room and then go straight. 3 : the map will erase because you enter a new zone of the dungeon.

SAVE (for those of you who don't read the line up). BOSS : EXECUTIONER + 2 SPELL WARDEN : This fight is a difficult one. The warden mustn't "increm" the excutioner. If they do, Aika dies in one Tackle of the boss and Vyse in two only. Sometime the CPU use it each turn. I have find a combo to avoid that, hope that it works also for you : Vyse and Drachma attack the left warden, Aika attacks the right warden (normally none use the increm spell).Then Vyse makes a Cut Fury on the right warden and Aika increm Drachma. Then kill the poor executioner. Back in the sewer, save and enter the new corridor. Take two chests then talk to Dyne. You must answer to save Fina and you receive the thunder moon stone from your father. Then exit by the new corridor. scene.You arrive in upper city. Save and then find the train. You jump on it.

This battle can be long if you do anything. Galcian asks a question and answer 1 to him. After the scene you are on the boat.

Go in the underground and search on the metallic bridge the first cham for Cupil. (go in the item menu and use it on him, look at your VMU and you'll see he is happy it's a mini game in the game). You can find another Cham in Shrine's Island. Now go to Sailor's Island and meet Domingo. Then go to the guild and buy two more mini quest. Buy a sub cannon or two in the shop where the guy couldn't sell anything. With a sub cannon you can concentrate more firepower in one turn. You can also equip Drachma and Aika.

Talk to her and answer 1. Then go east to the temple. You discover it. TEMPLE OF PYRIM : remake of tomb raider... 1 : Take the first wheel barrel and go to the other side. Use the second to reach an isolated room. Before you take the chest you fight monsters. Then head to the normal way. 2 : Take the ladder and avoid the boulder. The path left is useless. Go down and avoid a second boulder. 3 : The two boulders of the side must be in the hole so the third can reach his own hole and open a door. 4 : You find a chest. Go right and follow the way to another chest. Explore a bit the multi ways here to collect many items. Then find a way to the room with four wheel barrels. Put the red one in the red hole and the blue in the other hole (logic). 5 : Take the new door. Go left to collect a Cham and avoid the boulder. Go right to collect a chest then go down. 6 : pass this hot room and open a chest. 7 : You will find a switch and a path. Take the path and open the chest. Then go down to the barrel. 8 : Use the blue barrel of the side first and the red one last. (the blue on the right, then the second on the right, then the one on the left and the blue that go straight. Last use the red one). Now come back to the switch and use it. 9 : save your game. BOSS : ROCK WYRM : This dragon can stone the hero. My advice is to focus Vyse until he can make a Cut Fury. then The dragon attack usually Fina or Aika so use one of her to cure the stone and focus when you can. Really it's an easy fight. 10 : Walk on the monster and collect the red crystal. Exit and save. SAVE (or you will regret it). You discover that Bellena is Belleza the admiral of the red fleet. After the scene you are in the Little Jack. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : RECUMEN, THE RED GIGAS : This red gigas is invincible. The idea is to not use any repair kit or a minimum of 2. To do that concentrate all your firepower on the turn he shots (red square). Then he shots but miss you.Then you can choose to fire his head (1) or fire his feet(2) but either give to the same end : a failure. Then you must choose to retreat. Now direct the Little Jack on the LYNX (answer 1). AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE LYNX : this boat has a magic cannon. it can perform a three it combos that destroy you in one turn. Concentrate your firepower and focus as you wish but you must take those decision to win : 1 catch off her guard (2) 2 try to get behind her (2) 3 stop the little jack (1) Then you will be behind the boat and you must fire the harpoon cannon to win. After the scene you learn that you must go south through the wind. You have new cannons, a new engine and it's time to go to Maramba and save. Before You live this area you can find the Topple Rock in the mountain east of the city of maramba (on the same island). You also can go east of Shrine island and pass through the stone reef. Search on an island here the Sky Coral. Then you can go on new adventures. Now head a little west then south. There is a cut scene. In this area you can find the sky anemone near the sky rift. The travel to the new continent is very long and difficult. The battle are monstruous with monster that can cast Eternum (the level 2 of eterni never miss his victim). The giant storm in this airspace creates winds if you are in the bad direction. So are you lost in the sky ? it's normal. Use your map and search on it the I4 (details horizontal and vertical). Once you are near the new continent you will see an island with root, there will be a cutscene. Then the music change and some tam tam appears in it and the monsters change also. Find an island with a boat and on the other side (H4) is the village Horteka. In this airspace you can find the black market (near the king's hideout), buy new weapons for your ship and buy and sell new infos. When you decide to land in Horteka, you find that the people are not so friendly cause of the Valua of course. One ask if Fina is Quetya and Fina answer no (she has a link of course...). Then you decide two things : 1 find a moon stone for fuel 2 talk to the elder of the village to clarify the situation. Don't waste time to explore or talk cause no one will answer now. Use the wood bridge then the ladder and go straight. Use another ladder and near an entrance is a cham for Cupil. Enter and you will see a boat in bad shape. Talk to Hans and he gives you a moon stone. On the other side of the boat are in a chest 25 sacri crystal. Then exit and come back to the first ladder. Go left and use the ladder near a pole. Then follow a wood tunnel and find the house of the elder. Talk to him. He says to go north to find the king. Then talk to the woman to heal. Then you can explore the village. Near the house of the elder is a ladder, climb it and then the next ladder to collect a chest. The guy who jumps like an epileptic one will later says to you the location of the golden man. Then come back to the first pole you see and use it to reach a moon berry. Use the ladder near the save point at the entrance of the village and use the pole then the way to slide to the bar. Climb a floor or two to collect a chest behind a door then in the third floor is the exit of here. Equip yourself wisely then take off to the north. There will be a cutscene. You see De Loco's ship. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE CHAMELEON There is nothing difficult here. You have to use the Increm spell for the Little Jack. Then concentrate the cannon or the torpedo before he uses the flamethrower. The harpoon cannon is the best weapon to end quickly this battle. Go now to the king's hideout and talk to him. He wants you to save Isapa who actually knows where is Rixis the lost city where is stored the green stone. Take the boat and go south to a big mountain. It's moon stone mountain. MOON STONE MOUNTAIN : PART 1 : Follow the way to the save point. Save the enter. Vyse and compagny walk on the alarm. Too bad... 1 : Enter and collect the cham on the left. Cupil become a Sword. 2 : On the fork, go right to collect some info about sign on the ground. Then from this room, go straight. 3 : Pass only on the cross. Then go left. 4 : Again walk on the cross. PART 2 : 5 : Go left. Then in the middle way is a cham. You will see a path that leads you to an elevator. It's off now but later you will come again here and use it.Now exit. 6 : Follow the way and open the door to collect items. Follow the way down. 7 : In this room fall left (walk on the circle) to collect DE LOCO DRILL. Then come back to the room before you fall (sorry...). Pass the circle of the right. Then fall left. 8 : Follow the way and open the jail of Centime. He activates the elevator. PART 3 : 9 : Use the elevator and go straight first to collect DE LOCO MAIL. Then come back and go right (don't forget to open doors here). 10 : if you wish come back to 5 : to use the other elevator and obtain a moon berry. You are free to not do this. 11 : Once back follow the way to another elevator. Follow the way until a cutscene stops you. Alfonso is here and wants a revenge. PART 4 : 12 : You arrive in a corridor with two guards. Battle them, then open the three other doors instead of the one they guarded to collect items. Then open the last door and meet that clown of Isapa. A scene shows De Loco again. This guy really disgust me. 13 : Go to the elevator by the only way open. 14 : it's time to save. BOSS : ANTONIO 2 : As stupid as the original but a little longer and powerful. Then you will laugh because Alfonso will be really ridiculous and De Loco too. Centime thanks you and asks you to come and see him in Horteka. Go to Horteka and meet him to collect a propeller. It increases the speed of the ship. Then talk to the king to learn the riddle of the lost city. You must find a bird and a golden man. If you remember the epileptic guy in Horteka go and see him to learn that the golden man is north of Horteka. Buy the infos at the black market and search the bird first near the great lake. Then come back to the hut of the king and on the top of one of the mountain here is the golden man. Then the golden man indicates to go west. So you go and between some mountains you will find a stone, click on it and you have finished. Now go to the black market and sell the infos and then go to Rixis. RIXIS THE LOST CITY : a remake of Grandia... IT APPEARS THAT YOU CAN BE REALLY BLOCK IN THIS DUNGEON IF YOU USE THE TELEPORT DEVICE THAT GOES TO THE EXIT. TO AVOID THE PROBLEM? CREATES A SECOND SAVE FILE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO RESTART THE GAME FROM THE BEGINNING. I HAVE WARNED YOU... (Especially i will have no pity from this moment on for thoses who don't respect the warning. Update 1.4). 1 : Put the two jewels to open the door of the city. Enter.You will see a guy in a cut scene that looks like a ghost. Go right and find stairs. Use the left or the right path. 2 : There are two set of stairs (damn i talk like the guy who wrote a faq for tomb raiders 4). Take the one on the left. Click on the teleport. 3 : Go down to collect an item then up then down... 4 : Pass the gate search a path to find the stone cutter in a chest. 5 : Now come back to the stairs and take the right one cause left is broken. (scene). 6 : There is a chest near the stair, don't use the teleport up because it leads you to the entrance. Take the one near the stone ground. 7 : When you arrive go up to collect a cham. Go down then to take a chest then the teleport. Use the stair now. On the first floor you find a chest and on the second a teleport. The teleport of the left leads you to a chest and a way. Take the chest. 8 : Come back and use another teleport to reach another chest and don't use the third cause it leads you to the entrance. Now use the teleport and walk on the path. 9 : follow the guy, other path are useless, however you must force him to run to a teleport so choose wisely the direction from where you come to chase him. 10 : take the teleport and save. Climb the stair. BOSS : RIK'TALISH : It's a poor bird with some skills. The monster is long but not difficult. There will be a long cut scene. You must know save and prepare to fight the green gigas Grendel. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE CHAMELEON (ENHANCED BY A MOON STONE cannon) : As usual cast Increm. You will have to take some decisions here but don't worry. For the first time you are really free and i can add there is no trap. Fight as you wish. I choose to fire (answer 1) then to make a short retreat (answer 2) then i fire the harpoon cannon to beat him. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : GRENDEL, THE GREEN GIGAS: This must be an easy fight in comparison of the one with Recumen. (i find immediately the technic). There is no technic , choose to approach and fire the feet (2) and fire again and again after you cast Increm. As the battle will be long you will cast a second time Increm. Near the end of the battle Grendel acts strangely (like if you loose in Space Channel 5). Concentrate and wait the moment to use the harpoon cannon to make him fall in the river. Now the peace comes back. Return to the king and collect the green moon stone. You can buy new infos on discoveries. Search under the island of Horteka the garpa fruits. Then you can head north through the ex iron gate to reach north ocean. Cool because pass again south ocean wasn't in my plan. update 1.3 : Before you advance anymore in the story you can choose to make some miscellaneous things. Remember that if you don't make it now it will be too late after. You can find the Ixa taka palace on the ground near the golden man.

SECOND LINE / CLASSICAL IMPERIAL SHIP : Choose 1 (be aggressive) and use the moon stone cannon to beat this boat (don't forget to cast Increm). FINAL LINE / THE AURIGA : Use Increm and Quika to win. After the congratulations go to the inn to heal and pass the night for free. Then go to the dark rift and search a vortex. Near here is the blimp wreck west of the entrance and on an island. Now go to north ocean and recruit Domingo in Gordo's bar and you find a cham here. The bar is really easy to find. Come back to the rift and enter it. Save. THE DARK RIFT : Here you can win a lot of moon berries. So fight often. A dungeon for the boat. Cool and original. I'll play again Albator here. In the first room collect the chest (shining boat) then go left in a hole and search the other exit down. In the second room go straight to a shining exit and collect the black moon stone. Now exit and sell the info. Come back to this room and exit by the west exit (the one down), because all the other are wrong. Here search items and follow the light to the exit. In the last room save and go straight. Here are some important things i want to add : (upadte 2.1) 1 : You can find an item of Zivilyn Bane here. In the room with the cone of light you must follow to exit, search the top of an island to find a boat with the Chalice of Blood inside. I think, but i'm not sure that you can't take it without the skill that allows the Delphinus to go above the cloud, but as in Dark Rift all rules are different you can try now. Also i don't fight Zivilyn because i find it just before the end of the game. Zivilyn didn't guard it or he simply thinks that no one will find it. This battle is maybe random. 2 : Exactly as for 1, i fought this monster before the end of the game, so it's possible that this thing only appears the second time you go in dark rift. Let me introduce the playboy of the looper, ELCIAN. Exactly like his mama you can download, ELCIAN thinks that the life is more important than a fight, so when he will be in danger he runs and you will never see him again. You can find him in the last room of the dark rift with the save anchor. Just look up to see him. 1 : SAVE BEFORE A FIGHT WITH HIM. 2 : ONCE YOU ENGAGED : Turn 1 : Vyse= Cutlass fury (680 pts), Aika= Delta shield, Fina= Aura of valor (increase to the max your sp gauge and can be find in this room of the dark rift in a chest) and Enrique =defense (no skill of him affect Elcian). Turn 2 : Vyse= Prophecy (i fight Elcian before the end of the game...) 6400 pts Turn 3 : Vyse, Fina, Enrique= Focus and Aika = Delta shield Turn 4 : Vyse = Pirate's wrath (2000 pts), Aika= Delta shield, Fina and Enrique attacks (500 and 780 pts (with Final Cupil) respectively). I'm sure that there can't be more than 5 turns, cause Elcian runs. Also i don't mention it but when Elcian attack my party, he receives a nice counter attack of 700 pts each time. It seems that my Elcian has only 11000 HP, but Mark Emmons, the guy who helped me to find Elcian fight an Elcian with 17000 HP. He also told me that each time he comes back to Elcian the monster become stronger. My best advice is to wait for the end of the game, the item that Elcian gives is random, it can be a moon berry (for Mark) or a stupid Valuan Medallion (for me). Most of all you can win 7500 exp and 20 magic points once you defeat him. Last let me gives you the hint Mark told me, be sure to be equipped with the black map (item gave by Domingo when you have 50 discoveries in your log book) if you wish to make an easy fight. I didn't use this item cause i sold it, but with it the pirate's wrath of Vyse is more powerful. Another guy on the net told me of this monster, but when i ask infos about this (it was when i wrote the 2.0 version, imagine the time i have wasted before giving this info) he never answer me, probably because he thought i didn't believe him. However i thank him without naming him and give the full credits to Mark Emmons. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : ANGUILA : Choose to stay in front of the beast (answer 1) each turn and fire. Then the beast exit so i hope you have a lot of SP to fire on it and last choose again to stay in front of the beast to finish it. Then you can exit of the Dark Rift. Update 1.4 : Go to the east when you exit to find the guardian walls. Go north to find the Ugui's nest. Pass the sky rift from here, go north until a scene arrive. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : TENKOU SHIP : you must use the torpedo to destroy the boat. AIR BOSS FIGHT : JAO AND MAO : Choose to fight (answer 1) and kick their butt. Just in the same direction is the Spice Island (press A quick after the fight). You find here an ingredient which is called the Khale. It's automatic and will be use later in the game. Then continue to discover Yafutoma. (press A). Land on the city. Scene. Then you learn you must travel to Mount Kazai. Here you can heal and save in the guest house behind the palace. In this city there are 2 chests. One can be reach by using a boat after you use a lever to move the bridge and the other is behind the backdoor of the item shop. Don't forget to buy a Suiran Blade and to equip the boat with Torpedoes and Yamato Spirit. Talk to the ship part merchant and ask him (answer 2) to take you to Mount Kazai. MOUNT KAZAI CAVE : 1 : Take the rope and follow the way to the water. 2 : Use your suit to go underwater. 3 : Use the switch to fill the hole. 4 : Exit by the left and follow the way. Use the switch and go underwater. Use the new path to fill the main room with water by using the switch. Come back to the main room. 5 : Use the north exit. Follow the way.

Go left at the fork and use the switch to fill again the main room. 6 : Use the exit of the right in the main room. Choose to fall underwater by using the north pool. Follow the way to the last switch. Come back to the main return. 7 : dive now in the hole full of water. Exit. You see a rope but don't take it. Just follow the way. 8 : At the fork left is a cham, straight leads you to a moon berry in a chest. Go left and fight with 2 aluspheres. 9 : In this room you can use the switch to reach other part of the dungeon and arrive safely in the last room. Or you can choose to follow the way and open the wall. You'll fight 6 groups of Aluspheres. Anyway you come to the last room. 10 : Use the last corridor and save. Use the teleport device. BOSS : TORTIGAR : This turtle is not so difficult, just cast increm and focus when she is invincible. You must use Aika and Fina to heal. Once you have upgrade Vyse and Enrique with Increm you are sure to win. (cut fury and royal blade). Return to the village and pass the night. You notice that Belleza has come. After the scene go to the port. Choose to wait and see (answer 2). After a cut scene, Moegi helps you to escape. On the right of this passage is a chest and then you can go left. You discover the power of the Yafutoman. EXILE ISLAND ( TENKOU ISLAND after you learn it). Save. Follow the long way to the temple. You can find a Cham here. Cupil becomes a Spear. After a scene the prince Daigo asks something to you. Answer 1 to help him. Go to the port. After the scene you must reconquer the Delphinus. After the fight on the main bridge, go to the command room of the delphinus. BOSS : MURAJI AND 3 SOLDIERS : Easy fight. Don't waste your time. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE DRACO (Vigoro's ship) : Cast Increm and use the moon stone cannon. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : BLUHEIM, THE BLUE GIGAS : Hey there ! it's the dragon of Panzer Dragoon Saga ! It's the most impressive fight i have seen for the moment. Bluheim is powerful and speed and so cool. Bref, the goal is to win so cast Increm and fire with torpedoes and moon stone cannon. The other cannon are useless. They always miss the gigas. Enjoyed the chain lazer. Once you have win, you are in Yafutoma where the classical congratulations arrive. You obtain the blue crystal and can do some things. The current level of Cupil must be a spear. Use 1 chom so he regurgitate all cham and abirik cham. Give to Cupil all the cham and then the abirik cham and he becomes a Claymore. Well as you see the mix is necessary. Also it seems that the Claymore is the last evolution of Cupil by using this way for now. You can mix differently to obtain other form of Cupil. However continue to give him Cham and Abirik Cham. You decide to go east and you leave the village. END OF CD 1 AT LEAST. 9 WALKTHROUGH FOR CD 2 : Here are the miscellaneous things to do to unlock all the secrets. As usual it's now or never.

There is a ship who asks for 10 sky sardis (you have it normally but if you need to fish them they live near the Pirate grave, the first discovery). Give it to him and he gives an Abirik Cham. Return to Crescent Isle and build all you can. Talk to Polly and give her 1000 gold. Then if you talk again to her after exiting and returning she asks 10 grudles to cook a polly special. Go north of Crescent Isle and pass the sky rift. You see a big island. Search near the craters on it the Giant Squid Nest. In this sky you can fight a Giant Squid to obtain a better deck for your boat. In Horteka sky,above the cloud you can fight a Giant Red Bird to obtain also a good item. Return to Esperanza and south of there is a sky rift. Pass it to discover the land of ice. Search in the continent a small mountain. Fight the ALANAS to obtain an item. Then continue your quest. Go north of it and find the frozen giant. Go to the ice continent and search a place where mountain are separated by a path. Follow the path south south west to find the Ice bird. Go eats of here and when you see an aurora in the sky push A to discover the Aurora. Near this area is the entrance to the purple cave. Sell the infos before going there. Come back and click on the ice ground to find the entrance of the lost Ice city. (A5 on the map). You enter the Ruins of ice. RUINS OF ICE : 1 : Enter and find the Cham here. 2 : Answer 2 to the quizz (power of ice) and slide. 3 : Open the door and follow the way to the second quizz. Answer 1 (maybe two). 4 : Go to the third door and follow the way to the last quizz. Answer 2 (will and spirit). Slide to the capital. 5 : Use the device ahead of you. Follow the way. You find a chest with ice splitter. 6 : Come back and take the new bridge (i think it appears after taking the chest but maybe i miss it). Take the way of the left after the bridge. 7 : On the left of another path is an item guarded by Zivilyn bane. Take it and follow the normal way to another device. 8 : On the right is a cham, straight a blade and left you can save. Go to the boss. BOSS : VELTARN : No difficulty here. Increm, Blessing, royal blade, cutlass fury, etc. 9 : Use the device and go right to take a moon berry, then enter the room. Scene where you find Drachma near... Rhacknam! After the scene you collect the purple crystal and Drachma leaves you. (answer 1 to Aika). Retrun to Crescent Isle. Now you can go high in the sky and below the cloud also. I see a great advantage because in those area there are no fights. The convenient is that you lose a tons of exp. High in the sky near your home base in a rainbow. Search there the rainbow island. Then go south south west and you see a red object. It's the iron star. Return to Domingo in the meeting room and he gives you an item (you have 50 discoveries). Find the square K4 on the map in ice land and go below the cloud. You see a huge island, it's southern cross. Follow the direction of the cross (south) and you find a new entrance for the ruins of ice. You collect a moon berry. Take the device and you exit by the other entrance. From this exit, go east and then to the square C2. Search in this square a place where the screen turn dark. Point to the east ,i think, to look at the purple moon. Click until you find the eclipse point. South of here is the looper's nest in the corner of the lonely island here. Above the cloud and near south ocean i find the ghost ship. This thing move fast and describe a circle. If you don't find it immediatley like me wait a little it appears. Go in Ixa taka airspace and find a water fall in the sky. Search on the right ground to find a the alupas. Near here find Rixis and search in the area the pyramid where was the green crystal. Go south and use A to discover the observatory. In mid ocean near home search the moon stone lake above the cloud. It's easy and visible. Go to Tenkou Island and south of here is a small island with the mother tree on it. Go below Valua. You'll find an isalnd with the valuan wreckage. The dancing star are to the north of here (near it is the entrance to the yellow dungeon). Search north of the dancing star to find the rabbats (push A repetively). Go under Shrine's Island to find a lonely rock with the flying machine on it. It's on C4. Go east and push A to find the bottomless pit. Go to L10 and stop. Circle on yourself until you find the giant fish. With the clue given by an ermit above the sky of ixa taka you can search the flutterflies if you wish. If you find it you obtain the last item of Domingo. Flutterflies are visible and are a group of butterflies. it's on the line E4/F4/G4/H4 on the map. High in the sky near north of Crescent isle and near the sky rift is the house of Ilchimys. Land there and find a Cham. Use the two talk options. Exit. Come back later and talk again. The text has changed. Try to recruit him and he comes if Vyse has the Riselem spell. Return to Crescent Isle and give him 1000 gold so he increases his shop. Then exit and talk again to him and for 4000 gold he offers an ilchimix that can heal all HP and MP outside a battle. Go to the dancing star and enter the Maw of tartas. MAW OF TARTAS : 1 : After the save point, there are 2 ways. Go right. The chest here are symbolized by a yellow crystal with a transparent top. (there is two in this dungeaon). Take the first chest. 2 : Now go left to the other way. You arrive on a new fork. 3 : Go left to collect a moon berry. 4 : Go right to save and enter the last room. 5 : Go up to the yellow gigas. Scene where the yellow gigas awake. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : YELIGAR, THE YELLOW GIGAS : Nothing difficult because he is weaken by the seal of the silvite. Explodes him with torpedoes and moon stone cannon. Go to Crescent Isle and find the cham near the flag if you haven't take it before. Go in the meeting room and find Gilder. Scene. Go near Shrine's Island and below the cloud and search Dangral island. Land there. 1 : Take the ladder and enter the corridor. Scene. Use the ladder. 2 : Follow the way and click on the red ground to watch a scene or a chest. Do it each time you see a red ground. You look at a fan here and straight is the last scene you must watch. Come back left at the fork and cut the power of the fan with the lever. 3 : Take the way of the fan. The door of the left is closed. On the right there are two doors. Take the left one and visit each room for items. Then exit of here and use the right one. 4 : You see a door and an opening. Use the door and click on the schematics. Scene. 5 : Go all the way back. Scene where Gregorio gives his life to save the prince. Escape of here. Return to Crescent Isle. Talk to Brabham. Scene. 10 days later the Delphinus is ready to go in Deep Sky. Enrique announces that he wants to left the team and return to Valua.Go under Shrine's island and search the vortex. VORTEX : You have to go down until a scene stop you. Then Enrique explain how to extract Fina's ship. Use B to show you where to search and A to extract. I used the ten sonars to cover the map and then i extract two pieces of Velorium. Fina's ship is in the south of the map. Don't waste time to search each square cause of the annoying battle each time. Brian Graham drew up a map of the Deep Skies (where Fina's ship is found) keys: o = Nothing there x = Can't dig f = Fina's ship v = Velorium xxxoooxx xooooooo oooooxoo ooooooov ovoooooo oooooooo ooxxoooo ooxxfooo xxxxoooo AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE CHAMELEON : Destroy him with the torpedoes and magics only. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE CHAMELEON (ENHANCED WITH THE HARPOON CANNON) : Kill De loco and say bye bye to deep sky. Return to Sailor's island and meet Baltor. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : THE BLACK BEARD 2 : Easy fight. Use Marco then focus and concentrate all your firepower in one turn. The boat has 40 000 point only. Then land on Sailor's island and say bye bye to Enrique. You can go back to Crescent Isle after you heal and save here. update 1.5 : When you leave the island a long cut scene occurs. It's the false ending. Fina has all the crystals and must return to her home. Everyone makes a party to say bye bye to her but... Ramirez and Galcian are not agree with this. And they are right, if you want my opinion (it's too easy...). BOSS : 3 SHADOWS: Choose to fight (answer 1). Kill them quick. BOSS : RAMIREZ : You can do what you want, Ramirez is invincible (i give 300 000 points of damage, just to see if there is a hope and that guy lose nothing of his life). Then Ramirez will take the crystals.In the next cut scene Ramirez explains all about the silvite and Fina's mission, Answer 2 (which power are you talking ...) then he tries to kill Fina. After that he goes away. All is destroy in Crescent Isle. Support Brabham (answer 1) so he can rebuild quickly the Isle for you. Aika asks what to do and you must say to not give up (answer 1). Then Fina leaves to be alone in the meeting room. Go to her and answer 1 (it's ok to let her alone). In an another cut scene Alfonso becomes the leader of the remaining armada of Valua. Enrique comes to warn her mother but she didn't listen to him. Then Belleza saves the Prince from death. At this point Gilder joins the team. Before you leave go near the flag to find another Cham. A miscellaneous thing to do is to click on the flag and change it to Fina or Aika'one. You can do it as many time as you wish. Once you are ready take the ship of Fina (near the flag) and take off to silver shrine. THE GREAT SILVER SHRINE : (ie the FUNNIEST AND ORIGINAL DUNGEON of ALL RPG ever made) Note that there is no monsters here. Note also this is not a bug, the gravity goes upside down in the shrine. 1 : Go straight to enter. 2 : Go straight to a chest (silver armor). Go left and turn when you can to collect a moon berry. Continue the way. 3 : When you have the choice go straight (the way goes up). Use the device. 4 : Follow the way straight to another moon berry then turn left (or right if you come from the chest). There is another point when you see the light from the side where you can find another silver armor (left way). 5 : Use the other way now to end this level. A long cut scene will explain the truth about the world of Arkadia. Answer 1 to the silvite. After that Galcian and Ramirez come to take the last crystal. Return home and accept the offer of the Elder (answer 1, help me to return to Fina's ship). You can find near the entrance, Fina's room if you want to visit it. Go to Ryu kan's island and recruit him if you are Vyse the daring minimum. Now return to Crescent Isle and upgrade his shop. Then if you have two pieces of Velorium, Kan creates a Vorlik Blade for Vyse. the second piece of velorium is also in deep sky (VORTEX). If you hadn't find it it's time to go. To obtain the blade use the talk option of Kan and gives the pieces. Then exit of the isle and enter again to collect it by talking to him. Return to Valua, go near the sewer entrance and search the house with iron barrel on its side. Behind them is a secret way to a moon berry in a house. Polly asks for 10 grules and she gives the Polly special. To fish a grule go on the east side of dark rift (the side of Yafutoma) and near the exit is a band of grules leads by a rainbow grule. A polly special completely heal the wound outside a battle. Note that there is a short cut in Dark Rift now that you can go higher or lower than a normal ship, it's an exit down in the first room of the rift. Once you are in Dark Rift find Robinson, the lost sailor. Go in the psychedelic room and enter the tunnel just up and left of where you are. You will see a shining boat down with 3 sacrum crystal. Up is another boat with Robinson inside. talk to him and Polly recognizes him. You can find a moon berry here in a chest. Now take off and go to Pirate's Isle to recruit Pow the jester. Then go to Gordo's bar. Enter and Exit. Go above the cloud but not too high. Wander in the line E4/F4/G4/H4 on the map to find the flutterflies. they are yellow butterfly and wing in group. You increases the chance to see them by entering and exiting from Gordo's bar. I note something for this discovery a second time because this time i have find them and i have find a quick way to find them. (Also readers of the previous version have a different text up here). Anyway return to Crescent Isle and collect the title of Supreme treasure hunter of Arkadia from Domingo in the meeting room (hourra...). In Horteka talk to the tavern master and he speaks of the letter of Merida. Go to sailor's island lighthouse house and find the red balloon inside. Bring the letter to Merida and she will come with you. Last go to Yafutoma. Use a boat in the town to go near the water fall (under a bridge). You arrive in a hidden part of the town. There recruit Kirala the builder (a woman) in the house she is building (answer 1 to her). Then with her you can go to her sister. To quit this part, use the stair and then the device to go up. Then use the boat to fall down the known part. From here go to the restaurant and recruit Urala, who is kirala's sister. She comes with you and you have all the crew member list filled. OK it's over for the miscellaneous (or ... bref later). Go to Dangral island and land on it. Follow the way of the fan then the door right to go down and find the way to the opening (the place where Gregorio was killed by Galcian). You can refer to the appropriate section of the walkthrough to find it if you have problem. Then use the elevator. BOSS : VIGORO : He is not so tough with his armor and his gun. After you defeat him you learn that he wasn't really a bad guy. Even Aika says a word of hope for their possible couple. (Sorry if you think so but Vyse is for Fina and not for Aika). Save then. Once you enter Soltis, follow the anti gravity way to the door and enter. BOSS : ELIMINATOR : It's an upgrade version of the sentinel and if i except his stone power there is nothing to say about that poor boss. After the scene you must run for your life (but you can't fall in fact) and then you arrived on the Delphinus. Go to Soltis but a shield stops you. Scene. After that you are on Crescent Isle. Everyone come to support you so answer 1 to them. On the night, Belleza comes to say bye bye. Now search Aika and Fina. Fina is near the flag. Talk to her. Answer 2 if you are intelligent, but if you wish to answer 1 it's your problem... Then find Aika near the meeting room and answer 2 to her, or 1 but it's your problem..., Make the final preparations and go to Soltis near Pirate's Isle. Answer 1: let's make history. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : VALUAN MAGE SHIP, ridiculous. GALCIAN'S ELITE, Choose 2 (conserve the position) THE HYDRA, attack the upper part (answer 1), then the hull (answer 2) and cast Increm two times. GALCIAN'S SHIP : 1 : Enter and follow the way. Pass the bridge. You can take a X cannon in the chest, then use the pole. 2 : Use the ladder here. 3 : You are outside now. Go left and use the ladder then the pole to collect a moon berry and 3 sacrulen. Come back outside. 4 : Go right two times (first exit is from where you came first) and use the second exit. Use the way here to reach 2 magic dew. Return outside. 5 : Use the last exit. Pass the bridge. Go right to the pole (second room) then go left to the exit. 6 : Save and use the ladder here. Scene where Galcian arrived. BOSS : GALCIAN : ETERNUM : Galcian can kill everyone, especially Vyse. DEVOLVER : It's Galcian's version of Increm. NEGLORA : It's Galcian version of Dispell. ELECTRULEN : It's the combo thunder you know. TERMINAL : Galcian jumps in the air, destroys the fleet of Vyse then concentrate all his power on a single foe. (each time the poor Aika in my case). The method is simple, everyone focus and Vyse use his Pirate's wrath. Galcian dies quickly then. After the battle, Galcian escapes but Belleza, kills him. Galcian was her true love, that's why she couldn't betray him before now. The guy is dead it's sure. Then the Elders give their lives to allow you to land on Soltis, by Shrine's island. Save. If you want you can now, go to the looper's nest in the isolated area south of the land of ice. From the looper's nest you have discovered go north and meet a giant looper. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : GIANT LOOPER : SAVE BEFORE THIS FIGHT the tactics here is the following : If you hit him with one torpedo he escapes. So in turn one use Urala, in turn 2 concentrate all the torpedoes you have in one turn to hit him. He has 50 000 HP. If he escapes you will never see him again, so reset (A+B+X+Y+START) and restart the battle. In this case, Wait turn three and use the moonstone cannon and your torpedoes simultaneously to finish him. You can go above the sky of Dark Rift and search the Hamachou island. There you can ask the stat of your game an most of all find the 27 th cham of this walkthrough. The 28 th cham is in Rixis at the entrance, go left of the left statue to collect him. I had forgotten to take him when i was there... In Soltis there are 2 Chams to find and if you have followed my walkthrough, you'll see Final Cupil. Return to Soltis and land near Shrine's island. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : GADIANOS : You can avoid the battle and simply wait the end of the turn but my advice is to destroy the thing because it gives a strong deck for the Delphinus. This thing has 30 000 HP, so with three different torpedoes or some cannon, you can beat it in one turn. SOLTIS : I take Enrique with me, he is the best. To change of character, simply go to the bridge and search the character you want, but don't forget to equip him. PART 1 : 1 : Go through Shrine's island and down to where you fight the sentinel. Pass the door. 2 : You follow a corridor and arrive in a three ways path. Right is a dead end. Straight leads you to another three ways path but they are all dead end. Go left, you arrived in a two ways path, straight is a dead end and the good way is right. You arrived in another 3 ways path and the good way is straight. (left and right = dead end). 3 : From the good way go right and pass the door. Go straight then. 4 : Follow the way and avoid the dead end. 5 : You arrive in a 3 ways path, left is a dead end. Right leads you to the good way, but you can also go straight and then pass a door. I do that. The three way path here is simple : left = dead end, right is the way of the left in the previous path, and straight is the good way. Go left then. At the 3 ways path go right to collect the 29th cham. Then come back and use the left way to exit. Other path are dead end. PART 2 : 6 : Follow the way and open the door. 7 : Follow the way and discover the final cham. Then use the teleport. 8 : In this second corridor you'll see two teleport and a door. Pass the door to collect a moon berry then use the first teleport. 9 : Pass the other door to find a second moon berry. Then use the teleport. You are on the top and look at a giant glowing ball. Pass the door and use the device to arrive at a save point. SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE. 10 : Return to the giant ball and use the teleport. You are at the beginning. Trust me. Return to the corridor with two teleport. Take the second (at the end after the door). Follow the way to the room and fight 11 : Zivilyn Bane, yes he is here, it's true. You obtain the last orb. Then use the teleport you see to come back again at the beginning. WARNING : ON YOUR WAY TO THE TOP, YOU WILL FIGHT AGAIN A GUARDIAN, THEN LATER WHEN YOU TAKE THE GOOD TELEPORT TO THE TOP, A LINARK. AFTER THE LINARK, USE THE TELEPORT BUT DON'T TOUCH YOUR ANALOGIC THUMB UNTIL THE CAMERA IS NORMAL. IF YOU TOUCH IT YOU HAVE A CHANCE THAT THE SPRITE OF VYSE DISAPPEARED. IT'S A BUG AND YOU'LL RESTART FROM THE BEGINNING SOLTIS. THIS BUG IS RARE FORTUNATELY.If i hadn't save when i say it, it would be what await me. I have a great chance. Once you are on the top save and pass the final door. BOSS : RAMIREZ : ETERNES : he kills someone. SILVER ECLIPSE : His fury. DRILNOS : he weakens everyone. LUNAR BLESSING : the same as Fina but more powerful. The tactic is the same as galcian, Aika cure Vyse from weakness, Enrique and Fina focus and Vyse makes his Pirate's Wrath. AIR BATTLE FIGHT : ZELOS, THE SILVER GIGAS : First choose 1 (maintain the distance) then be agressive and answer 1 to shoot only on his center. When he cast Drilnos, use Incremus to cancel its effect. Use Urala to have a lot of SP and later the aura of valor if you didn't use it to fight with Elcian. You must shoot all the cannon and torpedoes and moon stone cannon in the same time to make great damage. He is long very long. FINAL BOSS : RAMIREZ (ENHANCED WITH THE SILVER POWER) SILVER BINDS : the fury. SILVER NIGHTMARE : he takes controls of a character. DRILNOS : i have enough of that spell ! The tactic is the same, Aika cures Vyse, Enrique and Fina focus and Vyse makes his Pirate's Wrath. The monster is as long as the classical Ramirez. CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE BEAT THIS GAME. Enjoy the ending. The final picture is different and depends on your title. I was Vyse the hero but you can be Vyse the legend at the maximum. It's finally over and i'm so happy. The emotion is great as the ending. ADK, THE ETERNAL WANDERER. 10 PINTA'S QUEST INFO : I open this section for some reason. Also It's the first mini game i have experienced because Arkadia was so great that i wanted to know all about this game. You meet Pinta the first TIME you visit the weapon shop of Sailor's island. She or he ,i don't know, joins the crew later. Then press start. To download the mini game you need 83 blocks. If you want to play with it you must switch off the dreamcast and use the VMU alone. I see some advantage in this game. 1 : The more you explore the game (Skies not the mini one) the more the map in the VMU will be enormous. 2 : Pinta gain experience. The more she or he has exp the more gold you collect. 3 : You can upload Pinta to take the gold and the potential items she or he found. Of course Pinta find valuable items if she has a lot of exp. 4 : You will encounter different danger : A wind and you must press A to resist. You will see another boat and fight. You can meet a merchant who exchange items with you. There is more of course. Those events are random and occurs after a certain levels. 5 : During the game you can change when you wish of area and explore a new one. 6 : once you have paid 500 gold in Crescent Isle to Pinta, i think he is able to find in the VMU game the animals he talked about (update 1.5). 11 THE HOMEPAGE OF SKIES OF ARKADIA : Well i haven't visited it yet because i haven't an american dreamkey and especially because internet is very expansive with a dream in my country, but i'll visit it one day or another. Update 1.5 : Nobody send infos to me about that but i have real good one especially for foreigners. With an american Dreamcast, no problem, go to the site and download the three files in your VMU. WITH A FOREIGN DREAMCAST : WARNING : AS YOU ARE NOT AN OFFICIAL MEMBER OF SEGA NET YOU CAN'T GO TO THE SITE AND DOWNLOAD THE FILES. IN ADDITION OF THAT THE SITE COMPLETELY DESTROYS YOUR ACCESS IN YOUR COUNTRY AND YOU NEED TO RE INSTALL THE DREAMKEY ON YOUR DREAMCAST. TO DOWNLOAD THE THREE FILES GO TO : http://score.sega.com/games/skies/ingame You will notice a last thing on the adress like "indoor" or "in" something but i can't read it due to the clock of the explorer of the game. It's probably there (with the full adress) where you find the utility of the third download. Anyway once you have the file, load your save file and accept to implement the save file with the download. Download 1 : the giant looper (see the walthrough part 2) Download 2 : the Hamachou island (to obtain the last cham) Download 3 : You can now obtain two new weapons for Aika and Vyse. First fish some moolah (if you need money only) in the sky and then go to the mystery merchant (a chinese) in the guild of Maramba or in evry town with him. You'll buy those items if you have money. They are completely useless but so fun. Aika has a dreamcast logo on her Swirlrang and Vyse a special Tuna Cutlass that allows you to combine a frozen spell and another one. It's funny but useless, too bad. However the Swirlrang confuses every foes and even a boss or an isolated monster like Elcian. 12 LIST OF SKILLS : Once in a hand to hand battle, pump up the SP gauge to the max and the run option become the crew option. You can perform two secret furies. PROPHECY : there are 3 differents Prophecy to perform. Vyse Aika Fina Enrique Vyse Aika Fina Drachma Vyse Aika Fina Gilder The power of this attack depends of your current level. BLUE ROGUES : it's an attack for a group of foes. Each crew member has an action he or she can perform with his own voice acting. It's a good thing of Sega of USA. You can try various version of this fury. The power depends on your current level and it's also true for the healing part of this attack. For example, i do 6800 of damage and have 3100 points healed. The guy who e mail me the tips do only 4500 of damage and 1500 points only are healed. DRACHMA : TACKLE : a super high impact damage the ennemy. Use 10 SP. (affect one ennemy) SPIRIT CHARGE : Drachma increases by four the number of the SP. Use 0 SP and needs 2 moon berries to obtain it. HAND OF FATE : A mountain rises under Drachma and he creates a big hand to stomp the ennemy. The ennemy dies instantaneously except if it's a boss. Use 25 SP and needs 4 moon berries to obtain it. (affect one ennemy) I think it's all for Drachma. Think that he leaves the team so if you want to see these skills increase him first. VYSE : CUTLASS FURY : Vyse makes a fury that looks like the Mirage sword in Shining Force 3 and looks like Julian (the hero of the scenario 3 for incult). Use 7 SP.(affect one ennemy) COUNTER STRIKE : When Vyse is surrounded by ennemies, activate this skill and he will offer a nice counter attack to everyone.(all ennemy) Use 1 SP and needs 1 moon berry. RAIN OF SWORD : Vyse looks like a god and jump in the air to summon a lots of thunder sword. (affect all ennemies). Use 14 SP and needs 2 moon berries to obtain. SKULL SHIELD : Vyse summon an old air pirate to protect the party. Useless. Use 5 SP and need 2 moon berries to obtain. PIRATE'S WRATH : Vyse use a rising thunder storm to launch the ennemy in space, then he comes from beyond the star to make a Grand Cross on the poor victim. This skill is equal with every ennemies (4000 to 6000 points of damage each time). Use 21 SP and need 4 moon berries to obtain. AIKA : ALPHA STORM : Aika shot circles of fire to burn the ennemy. Can make combos if use correctly. Use 4 SP and needs one moon berry to obtain. DELTA SHIELD : Aika creates a triangle where magic can't affect the party. Also she blocked the magic of the party. I have never success with this spell. Just try it and forget it. Use 2 SP and needs 1 moon berry to obtain. LAMBDA BURST : Aika uses four fire psycho boomerang to kill all ennemies in the battle. Use 8 SP and need 2 moon berries to obtain. EPSIOLON MIRROR : Aika creates a shield for herself that heal 10 MP and also she is invincible for one turn. Use 10 SP and need 2 moon berries to obtain. OMEGA PSYCLONE : Aika uses her boomerang to launch a fire tornado on the foes. Even if it's the most impressive of her skill i find it less powerful than the lambda burst. Use 12 SP and need 4 moon berries to obtain. FINA : LUNAR GLYPH : Fina asks the moon to hit an annemy. It can stone the victim. Use 3 SP and needs one moon berry to obtain. LUNAR BLESSING : Fina cast a blessing spell that heal all members by 200 points per turn. Use 12 SP and needs one moon berry to obtain. LUNAR CLEANSING : Our dear Fina clean every one from bad status except death. Use 6 SP and need 2 moon berries to obtain. LUNAR WIND : It's a dispell spell. Useful some times.

Use 18 SP and need 4 moon berries to obtain it. GILDER : GUNSLINGER : Gilder ask the ennemy to dance for him. Can make combo. Use 9 SP and need 1 moon berry to obtain. AURA OF DENIAL : Gilder protect the team from 50 % of damage. Useless. Use 5 SP and need 2 moon berries to obtain. THE CLAUDIA : Gilder calls his boat to fire on all ennemies. The problem is that the impact is divided by the number of ennemies and in one foe it's less powerful than a Gunslinger. Use 18 SP and need 4 moon berries to obtain.

I can't beat the red gigas : You must increase you fire power with a sub cannon or two. I'm block in Rixis cause i take the teleport to the exit. I can't come back : You can come back, but you need to press A and the direction you want to go once you are in the teleport devices. It appears however that many people experiment a true bug and can't go back. I don't want to play this game, it's mix of old and there is no originality. There are a lot of originalities. The section with the boat and the crew, the discoveries and the system of magic. Also the story is a real good one. And i haven't talk of the other to not spoil the fun. Where is Gordo's bar ? The square E4 on the map. What's the main room in the Delphinus ? It's the room with Gilder. (the command room or the control room or the room with the wheel...) Where is Marco ? Look at the computer on the right and on the other side. Click on the box with a cross on it to find him automatically. Don't forget to take the moon berry in the symetrical chest.

This walkthrough is copyright, so please ask the permission to post it in your site. 15 SECTION ZERO : Problem A : The battle against Recumen the red gigas is the most difficult of the game. The difficulty comes from the red ray you must avoid. 1 : Before you land on Maramba, be sure that you have bought a sub cannon in sailor's isalnd. I don't remember if it's possible at this point of the game but buy a torpedo too. 2 : Each time Recumen hits you it makes more and more damage to the little Jack. If you really need to use a repair kit be sure to keep four for the next battle. Personnally i avoid his shot each time but it seems that it's random from a Dreamcast to another. So don't e mail me why you lose some HP i don't know. Fight him until you can retreat. 3 : The goal of this fight is only to resist to Recumen. It's impossible to beat him. 4 : Give two captain's stripe to the little Jack before you land on Maramba. 5 : During the fight you notice a red square. 2 turns before, launch a torpedo (if it's possible to to buy some of course) or else shot with a standard cannon. One turn before shoot with a sub cannon and in the turn of the red square add the power of the main cannon to the sub cannon and you normally avoid the red ray. 6 : If you can use the harpoon cannon in the turn of the red square, use it and you are sure to avoid the shot. 7 : if this don't work try to concentrate all your firepower in the turn before the red square and put your guard up in the turn of the red ray but i don't believe this will work better... Problem B : It seems that everyone wants to complete the mini quest of the girl in Esperanza. But the same people have missed an important story line. After you defeat De Loco and the green gigas, on the way to the yellow world, you meet Gordo and 3 mad chief. After you beat him he creates a bar so everyone can eat the best food in the world of Arkadia. This bar appears in the sky after the second time you escape of the grand fortress and once you delphinus can go through the sky rift. I have indicated the exact location in section 17 so don't ask me where it is, read carefully my faq. Problem C : Here comes the problem of the ingredients. The first is discovered automatically once you have find the spice island. It's the khale. Read this guide to know where it is. The second is given by Gordo in his bar the second time you meet him (cause the first time is when you discovered the bar). The last can be bought in the item shop of the destroyed Nasrad for 500 gold if you use the talk option. Other problems : It's useless to ask me a map of the dark rift. I have said all i can in this faq. Read carefully my faq before asking me something. Each time the answer is inside and it's not my problem if you don't want to read all the text. Don't forget that it's a SEGA game. As in Phantasy Star 1 to 4, even if you know what to do, you must talk to a person who said what you can do or else you will block in the storyline. I know it's stupid but SEGA do this to avoid the spoiler. The Raw moon stone is used automatically when you talk to a person in Pirate's isle. It fills with energy your boat. That's why you keep it all along the game. Thanks to Jess Quakenbush for this info. I WON'T ANSWER ANYMORE TO ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT SKIES OF ARKADIA CAUSE I'M WORKING ON NEW PROJECTS LIKE PHANTASY STAR ON LINE AND A SERIE OF UNKNOWN GAMES. I HOPE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS AND STOP ASKING ME QUESTIONS. I HAVE DONE MY BEST IN THIS WALKTHROUGH AND I'M SURE IT'S COMPLETE NOW. 16 PERSONNAL NOTES : All magics and skills were find. All crew members were find. All discoveries were find. I have find all the cham and abirik cham. I have completed all the side quest. I regret that there wasn't a seventh moon, the black moon. I regret also that CD 2 is shortest than CD 1. I regret that Sega didn't make a super final with all six characters in a battle against the last boss. I regret that there is no secret quest after you complete the game. Last i regret i can't fight a black Gigas from the black moon. At the beginning i really think that Galcian was the last survivor of the black moon. Well, too bad but after all this is the best RPG ever made and i can't blame SEGA for the thing i haven't find in the game. here are some gameshark codes : Game Shark Codes Infinite Gold 5677A4E0 05F5E0FF Max HP Vyse B4E6E935 270F270F Max HP Aiko F519453E 270F270F 17 MAIN LOCATIONS : Here are the 26 locations on the map, letter for vertical and number for horizontal.
