Walkthrough - Guide for Wild Arms 2
Scroll down to read our guide named "Walkthrough" for Wild Arms 2 on PlayStation (PSX), or click the above links for more cheats.
Version 1.8 Based on the Japanese release of Wild Arms: 2nd Ignition for the Sony PlayStation This is my first walkthrough, but I've seen too many bad ones to know how to not make this suck. I also know a good bit of Japanese, so I'll try to translate when I can. Hydrus (email@example.com) 9/23/99 - Started walkthrough 10/22/99 - Started section on monsters. A couple hours later, I found the Kaiju Card Shop. -_-;; 4/24/00 - Got to disc 2. ^^; 5/12/00 - Added section on learning Special Skills after getting emails asking about Tim's. Updated instructions for getting High Magic. Changed "Roadblazer" to "Lord Blazer" 5/13/00 - Finished the game 5/21/00 - Updated Alchemic Plant section, since the password part has been screwing up people. The password in the English version should be "ISK". Added Music and Extra File. 5/27/00 - Added info on the Death Rune (Archeim, Ch. 17) Added info on getting the three Guardian Lord Statues (Dais, Ch. 19) and getting their three High Runes (Reviving the Stone Gods, Other Stuff section) Added info on getting Luceid (Magic Wolf Cave, Ch. 21) 5/28/00 - Added ARMs section, fixed misspellings Features: Pinch Attack - The monsters will only attack one of your party members, who must fight them alone. Before the monsters appear, you'll see a message like "Ashley no Pinchu". After a few rounds, the rest of your party will join in. Back Attack - The member(s) who are in the back row will get attacked, instead of your main group. Your back row is anyone in the right three slots on your menu screen. Encounter Cancel - Before you get into a random fight, an exclamation point will appear above your head. If the balloon is red, you cannot avoid the fight and may even be surprise attacked. If the balloon is white or green, pressing Triangle, Square, or Start will cancel the encounter. Select will bring up the map screen, but will NOT cancel the encounter. Monsters are persistent though, so if you cancel the fight, expect to get another one in a few seconds. After four or five cancels, you'll usually get a red exclamation point and have to fight. Green usually means that you'll get first attack, but not always. Force Points - Unlike last game, you need a certain amount of Force Points to use your special skills, such as ARMs and Magic. However, you don't lose FP when you use these skills. Also unlike last game, you start each fight with FP equal to your current level, and get more FP as you use the Fight command or get attacked. Bugs: If you switch out a confused party member during the fight, the guy who takes his place will look to be confused too, but won't be. Learning Special Skills: Ashley - Ashley will find wrenches in treasure chests that he can use from the item screen to give himself new ARMs abilities. Brad - Brad will find white treasure chests along the way that he has to kick open. He'll receive an ARM from each chest that he can use immediately. Riruka - Riruka can take Crest Graphs that she finds to magic shops throughout Filgaia and get spells inscribed on them. You can have one spell per Crest Graph. If you can figure out how, you can learn how to use High Magic, which are more powerful spells. Tim - Tim has 20+ Guardian Lore spells he can learn. Each spell falls into a subcategory corresponding to a type of Guardian Rune you can find. You need to kill monsters in order to learn these spells, and Tim's status screen tells you how many monsters you need to kill to learn each spell. The trick is that Tim only learns spells in the same category as the rune he currently has equipped. So if you're using Stoldark, the Water Rune, you'll only gain points towards water spells. Fight something easy like Balloons near Meria Town and you can learn all his spells in an hour or so. You'll be able to learn more spells when you get new runes. Kanon - Kanon receives new skills randomly as she uses her old ones. For each of her skills, she has a fixed chance of learning a stronger version of that skill. For example, when using a level 1 skill, she may have a 60% chance of learning a level 2 skill. Higher level skills are harder to learn. Your success rate is also determined by Kanon's Luck. If her luck isn't Best, you'll have a hard time learning new skills. Mariabel - Mariabel starts out with a skill called Ability Drain. Using this skill on certain monsters will allow Mariabel to learn their special attack.

I did the best I could though, so you'll at least have some idea of what's going on. Item names, monster names, technique names... almost all of these are written in katakana, which is the Japanese way to write foreign words. I assumed that all of these words were taken from English, so I gave my best guess of what I thought they'd be. The problem comes with made-up words like "AGAATORAAMU", in which case I came up with what I thought the best English spelling would be. The official English release mangles the spelling into "Argetlahm" or something similar. Chapter names are my creation. The game is not split into chapters, but I wanted to divide the story up. Boss hit points are an approximation. They'll be close enough. Also note that the official English spelling of Riruka is "Lilka". Why, I don't know. It's clearly written in large English letters "Riruka Eleniak" in the Japanese manual. To start the game, choose one of the three characters. If you choose Brad first, start with Chapter 2. If you choose Riruka, start with Chapter 3. You will need to complete all three before moving on to Chapter 4, but the order doesn't matter. Chapter 1) Withered Ruins (Ashley's Opening) Scene: Army truck Ashley and five other boys are cooped up in an army transport. Your squad leader (bluish gray haired guy) is briefing you on the mission. One of the boys asks you if this is your first mission, which gets you both yelled at by the leader. He yells, "New guy! What's your name?" The game now lets you choose your name. The default name is Ashuree (Ashley), but to make things easier on yourself, I'd erase that and put in Ashley using the English letters. When you're done, the leader yells at you some more... Scene: Army camp The leader tells your group about monsters in the area, and the group splits up. You now have full control over Ashley at the entrance to an underground area. Scene: Withered Ruins Monsters: Kobold, Steege, Gagison Items: Gimile Coin, Mini Carrot, Throw Knife Tool, Heal Berry x4, Bullet Charge, Power Apple, Potion Berry x2 There are doors to the left and right, and one in the top center. The right room just has a guy in it, so go in the left room and open the chest for your first Gimile Coin. Go through the south door and up the steps to get on the walkway above the main room. Continue down the walkway and enter another small room with a chest. Open it for a Mini Carrot. Head back down to the main room. The guy standing next to the middle door will heal you to top if you talk to him. Go through the door. There's a guy on the other side who'll warn you that you're entering monster territory now. Ooo, scary. You'll find fights now, but keep heading south. You'll find a guy on a ledge, looking across a gap at a glowing blue pillar. Talk to him, and he'll move out of the way to give you a look. You could go through the door on the right, but you'll come back to it later anyway, so walk up to the ledge and jump off. When you land, you'll find a guy laying on the ground. Talk to him and wake him up. He'll show you how throwing a knife at the blue pillars will open doors. He then gives you your first Tool, the Throw Knife. Push the Square button to use it, as with all Tools. The guy falls unconscious again. Walk over to a ledge and the game will tell you how to jump off of ledges. Press the O button to jump off, then go through the door he just opened for you. You'll find a chest containing your first Heal Berry. You may have noticed that you started with 10 of them, so this isn't too big a deal. Go back out the door and then up the stairs on the right side. In the next room you'll see a walkway covered with little gems. Keep going out the north door. Up some more stairs you'll find a chest with another Heal Berry. Go out the northeast door and you'll find yourself back in the room with the ledge. Throw a knife at the pillar to open the west door. You'll go under a bridge and through another door. After going up some steps, you'll find a door to the south and a passage to the east. Go through the door first and down the step to find a flame surrounded by those little gems. Every time you pick up a gem, you'll get back 1 hit point. Go through the north door and you'll be in a two storied room with two chests above you and a guy who wishes he was up there. Go back to the room with the flaming staircase and this time go down the east passage. Now you'll be on the top floor of that room where you can reach the two chests. They both have Heal Berries in them. If you fell for the trap in the ledge between them, you'll have to go back up the stairs and try again. When you're done playing, go out the north door. Cross the bridge and go in the door. You'll be in a room with a lot of narrow walkways and sand waterfalls. The dude tells you to watch out for traps. If you fall off though, you'll just reappear back at the door. Doesn't even hurt. Go out the north door first and open the chest for a Bullet Charge, then come back. The door to the south is closed, so make your way over to the pillar in the southeast corner and hit it with a knife. Go out the south door and jump off the ledge. The guy at the bottom will heal you, and the next room has a Save Point. Use the O button to talk to it, then choose the top option to save. After saving, choose the top option to continue. Go out the north door, across the bridge, and out the next door. The next room is darker with a lot of gems, and the one after that has a closed door and a pillar. Make your way around until you're directly east of the pillar and then throw a knife at it. The knife will bounce off the wall and hit the pillar. Go out the door you just opened. The next room has a series of ledges. Jump down onto the highest ledge and make your way down to the chest. Open it for a Power Apple. If you missed the chest, there's no way back up to it. Go out the west door. At the end of the passage, you'll hear a voice and walk through the door. A kid has been taken prisoner by three guys. You'll listen to the guys talk for awhile, and you throw a knife to get the kid's attention and ask him his name. You can now enter his name (default is Tonii). Once again, change it to Tony in English. The plan is for Tony to cause a distraction, which he does nicely.... and manages to release a monster. Since this is your first Boss, the game will give you some info about bosses. Basically, each boss monster has separate parts, and destroying those parts first gets you more experience. Boss: Kalivos (Karivosu) ~ 400 HP Left Hand ~ 200 HP Right Hand ~ 200 HP Kalivos has three parts, his main body, left hand, and right hand. Use your ARM to take out his hands, and use Heal Berries as necessary. His Laser Breath attack does around 25 points, so be ready to heal yourself. You'll get two Potion Berries for winning. Don't use them until you have a *lot* more hit points. ^_^; Scene: Outside of Ruins The place catches on fire and everyone walks out while the rest of the squad cheers. You talk to your leader, I think about how you doubted yourself before the fight. He tells you that's natural. The chapter ends and you get to save. Chapter 2) Greenhel and Beyond (Brad's Opening) Scene: Greenhel Forest, Raining Monsters: Barghest, Subone Items: Heal Berry (random), Power Apple, Hardy Apple, Kick Boots Tool, Potion Berry Brad, an escaped prisoner number 666, is hiding from the guards. The guards walk off. Flashback. You get to name your character (default is Buraddo). Change it to Brad, though no matter what you call him you'll be stuck with the last name Evans, which is always written in katakana. After seeing some more dialogue between the guards, you get control. Follow the path to a ring of gems around a tree. There are two chests, one to the left and one to the right. Open both for two Heal Berries. The path continues north, then splits. Take the west path to find a chest with a Power Apple in it. Go back to the east path and jump down the ledge. Follow the path to some boxes. You can pick up the boxes with the O button and throw them by pressing O again. Some boxes have Heal Berries in them, which will fall onto the ground. Keep following the path north until you get to a big cliff. After Brad's done talking to himself, walk to the side directly above the chest and jump off. Open it for a Hardy Apple. Break the boxes for more Heal Berries, then head north. A dog will run up to you, then run off, then return with a Heal Berry. He'll start following you around. The path splits north and east. First go east to a house. Inside the front door is a Save Point. In the back room you'll find a chest with Brad's first Tool, the Kick Boots. Leave the house and go around the right side to a gate. Kick the gate open with the Square button. Go in the door to your left and open the chest for a Potion Berry. Keep going around the house and open the last chest for a Bullet Charge. Go back around the house to the front and leave to the west. Don't worry about the dog, he'll keep following you. Take the north path this time, breaking the four boxes in the way, then two more later on, then one. Be sure you pick up any Heal Berries. You'll come to a ledge with a rope trolley. Kick the post to get it working, and you'll hop aboard. Follow the path to the north. Some soldiers show up, and hear a growl behind them. Brad runs up to help. Boss: Greymalkin (Guremarukin) ~ 750 HP Stomach ~ 400 HP Keep shooting him with your Revolver Cannon ARM, using Lock On when you can. Use Heal Berries as necessary. You'll get a Potion Berry for winning. Brad, however, is pretty roughed up afterward. Scene: Field Monsters: Balloon Items: Response Apple Where to go now? The sign reads "North - Sebokku Village, East - Great Plains." It also tells you how to use the Search System. Go southeast and search the middle of the circular forest (press the Square button) for a Response Apple. You'll also find a sign next to the pond that tells you the village is to the northwest. Head northwest to the peninsula and search for the village. Once you find it, go in. Scene: Sebokku Village You stumble into the village with your dog close behind. A girl takes you to her stable and cleans you up. She says her name is Meryl (Meriru). She asks if the dog is your friend. (she calls you ojiisan, which means old man or grandpa) Choose the top choice for yes, and the bottom for no. She asks you what the dog's name is. Name the dog! (default is Rasshu). Change it to Rush. You ask her why she's helping you, and she says that since you have Rush, you can't be a bad person. Soldiers show up in the village and you go out to confront them. The leader throws something to you and the soldiers take you away. Meryl asks if Brad is a bad person, and the leader laughs. He refers to Brad as the "hero". Mysterious... The chapter ends and lets you save. Chapter 3) The Millennium Puzzle (Riruka's Opening) Scene: Meeting Room Six men are sitting around a table discussing a "migratory bird"... I think it's some sort of joke. The village elder is the gray haired man in the upper left. In a flurry of sparkles, Riruka falls onto the table and begins apologizing profusely. She tells how she was trying to get to Valeria's house using a Teleport Gem. They ask her name... (default is Riruka) Put in Riruka, and the scene changes. Scene: House Riruka and a boy are sitting at a table, with the boy's mother cooking. They get into a discussion on magic, which the boy is very interested in. She says that magic isn't all that special since anyone can use it. The boy says "Even me?" "Of course!" So she starts telling him a story... Scene: Millennium Puzzle Monsters: Gome, Blue Book, Bogey Riruka is kneeling and crying on a floating block, calling for her big sister. (Everything in the black box is being said by her sister) She tells Riruka that the big block (Switch Block) behind will open the door. Riruka's magic doesn't work though. Her sister tells her to try the smaller Switch Blocks behind her. She hits one, and a teleporter appears. She then tells Riruka how to use the Fire Rod. (press Square) Now you have control. The object is to hit the remaining three blocks to open the door. The monsters here are tough, so be careful. Whenever possible, cast Heal on yourself in fights instead of wasting Heal Berries. And don't waste your time with attack spells, they don't work well here. Go south to the spinning green cube and touch it. The next room has a Save Point. Keep heading south through the next teleporter. There are three switch blocks in this room. Stand on the single gray block and shoot the fire rod at the block to the west. The block you're on will slide over. Stand in between the next two blocks and shoot the east block. You'll rise up. If you shoot the wrong block, just shoot it again to reset it. Next, shoot the other block and jump off to the south. There are three teleporters here. The north and east ones loop around to each other, so go in the west one. You'll come to a dead end. Stand next to the wall and shoot the switch block. Go north through the teleporter. In the next room, stand next to the switch block and shoot it, then move one square over and shoot it again to deactivate it. Move south and stand on the other moving block, then face diagonally towards the switch and shoot it. You'll now be able to reach the east teleporter. When you get to the ledge with the switch block underneath it, jump off and shoot the switch. The wall will come down so you can reach the south teleporter. Stand on the gray tile behind the pillar and shoot the switch. Go in the teleporter. Without moving, shoot the switch to your north. If you fall off, you'll have to do it all again. When you shoot the switch, the block you're on will disappear and another teleporter will appear. But the gate still won't open. Two more to go. Go through the west teleporter. There are two switches in this room. Stand near the one farthest west and shoot the *other* block. The bridge will raise up. Now shoot the block near you and it will raise up again. Go up the ramp and across the bridge to the south teleporter. The north one is a dead end. Head west and jump off a ledge down to a switch. Move around it next to the other ledge and shoot the switch. Head north. The next room has a walkway below you that you can jump down to. Jump down and stand on the gray tile, then shoot the switch. Go west. You've seen a room like the next one before. Go up and you'll be back in the main room. Shoot the switch block like before. The door still won't open. If you want to save, you can go through the south teleporter to the save spot, but the last block is to the east. You'll be in a big room with two switches. There are four side passages. Stand on any of the four gray tiles and shoot diagonally at the first switch to get to a passage. Each passage has a colored pillar. Remember the color and height of each pillar. Each time you have to go back to the central room, reset the blocks, then move to a different lift and shoot the switch to activate it. When you're ready to go on, go east, stand on the gray tile, and shoot the switch. Go out the east teleporter. You'll be in a room with four colored tiles, blue, red, yellow, and green. When you stand on one, it'll rise up. You need to jump off when it gets to the same height as the similarly colored pillar in the previous room. Red: One, Green: Three, Blue: Three, Yellow: Two. If you mess up, leave the room to reset them. When you get it right, the wall will open up and you can head east. Go up to the last switch block and shoot it. The gate opens, but there's nothing behind it... Your sister's voice tells you not to worry, then it fades away. Scene: House As Riruka finishes the story, the boy's father comes home. Riruka doesn't want to trouble the family anymore, but the boy brags to his father about how Riruka can use magic. Riruka is flustered... You can now move around the house. You can also read your first book up in the boy's bedroom. Go up to the bookcase and press O. The title is "Comet's Locus". You can say Yes or No to reading it. Books are just interesting reading, they don't do anything for you. Leave the house. You're now in Palace Village. Talk to everyone outside. One guy will let you save, but all the buildings are locked up for the night. When you talk to the guy on the hill again, you hear a growl. You run to help the villagers. Boss: Oriviel (Orivieru) ~ 500 HP Feet ~ 200 HP Don't attack him with your umbrella or you'll get your butt kicked. Cast Freeze twice on his feet, then alternate Flame on his head and Heal on yourself until he dies. Cast Heal when necessary, remember that you can't run out. You'll get a Potion Berry for winning. After the fight, you wonder whether you have the power your sister did. The boy calls you 'big sister' and tells you how great you are. You spin around, give the V for Victory pose and yell "Heheee! Victory!" Scene: Road out of town The village elder thanks you for your help. The lady hands you a teleport gem, but before you can use it, the boy asks if you'll come back. "Of course!" You teleport away and... a black cat walks up. They still think it will be alright. ^_^; The chapter ends. Chapter 4) Marina Scene: Girl standing on a ledge You see a young girl standing on the edge of a cliff looking at a comet. She turns to see a bright light forming over the hills. Not knowing what it is, she runs off. Scene: Meria Town, Ariel view Items: Hardy Apple Three boys run over to the bakery, where a girl opens the door. The scene changes to a bedroom, where the bright light has just woken Ashley up from being unconscious. The game now lets you name the girl (default is Marina). Ashley recognizes Marina and says good morning. She tells Ashley that a friend of his has come to the house, and to hurry and not keep him waiting. You now get control of Ashley. Check the barrels in the corner of the room for a Hardy Apple. You can't go up the ladder yet, so head downstairs and outside where Tony is waiting for you. From now on, Tony will affectionately refer to you as "An-chan". He introduces you to his two best friends, whom you have to name (defaults are Scott and Tim). Scott is pretty formal, while Tim is a lot less so. Neither of them have parents. And yes, Tim looks like a girl. So much so, that I named him Tina the first time... Tony asks you for a favor. Answer #1 is "I understand" and #2 is "Nope, too busy." If you say no, Tony is disappointed. If you say yes, you have to catch the black cat on the roof of the Bakery. I haven't yet figured out how to do this, but apparently the guy on the roof of the inn gives you a clue about it. Tim tells you that he is a medium for the Guardians and something about his mother dying... He gives you the Gulgeif Rune and tells you how to use it in battle through your Custom Commands. Marina comes outside and gives you a letter that a soldier gave her this morning. You're very excited about joining this new organization. Marina is upset though and runs off. Scene: Meria Town, the Next Morning The townspeople congratulate you. Marina isn't there to see you off. They tell you that you need to go to the church to the northwest. As you're about to leave, Marina shows up. You tell her that you'll come back. She apologizes for running off yesterday and tells you to remember to come back. You leave. Scene: Field Monsters: Pillbug, Balloon You can reenter the town now, but it's not necessary. It's a good idea if you want to save. To the southwest are the Withered Ruins from the beginning. There's nothing else of interest in the area, so head straight to the northwest and search for the church. (It's on the small bright patch of ground) Scene: Great Holy Hall of the Sword The introduction went by too fast for me to read. I think it was basically a welcoming into the ARMS (Awkward Rush & Mission Savers) organization. The stained glass window depicts the Holy Woman holding the Guardian Blade. Two guys haul in a sword in a stone. This is the Sword of the Holy Woman, the Guardian Blade "Agartram". Whoever can pull out the sword will become the new hero. As the others try, one of the boys starts up a conversation with you about the sword and becoming a hero. It's your turn. You go up and start to pull on the sword... WILD ARMS: 2nd IGNITION As the credits roll, you are told the legend of the Guardian Blade and the Holy Woman. Nope, you didn't pull out the sword, but you went up there thinking you just might do it. More discussion on the sword and the Hero. You can talk to everyone in the room, but the game won't continue until you talk to the squad leader, the brown haired guy at the upper left table. While talking to him, the room starts shaking. A dark rift starts opening on the stage, and one of the guys turns into a green monster. Everyone else starts changing too. The leader tells everyone to get out and you run down a hall where a locked door stands in the way. Scene: Ashley's Mind Ashley finds himself in a strange place with no way out. He hears a strange voice that tells him that it will grant him power... Scene: Hallway Monsters: Proto Blazer Ashley finds himself surrounded by monsters. He asks the voice, "Who are you?" The voice responds, "I am you." Ashley screams in pain, then "... I'm sorry, Marina..." He transforms into a white monster and blasts one of the green ones. You get control. Fight your way out of the room and into a long hallway. To your left is the meeting room that you started in and the first room on your right has a Save Point. There are a ton of books in this area on the Guardian Blade, the Holy Woman, the Hero, and the Disaster. You can fight as many guys as you want, but eventually you need to go to the end of the hall and out the north door. Keep going until you reach the sword, then grab it. You easily pull it out. Scene: Ashley's Mind Ashley and a woman are floating in space. She should look pretty familiar. You tell her that you want to go home. She asks if that's an important promise. (your promise to Marina?) She gives you Agartram, which transforms you back to normal. While you're recovering, a man with a cane walks in. His name is Irving (Aavingu). He walks up to you, and you collapse. Scene: Cliff Two men are talking on the edge of a cliff overlooking the cathedral. Their names are Caina (Kaiina) and Vinsfeld (Vinsuferuto). They keep saying "that man", but I believe they're talking about Irving. Scene: Ashley's Mind (again) "Why do I hurt..." The voice speaks again. "You are you, but not for long." Ashley gets smacked around for good measure. I can't really say I know what's going on here, but it appears that Ashley is possessed by a creature that doesn't have full control. Chapter 5) Valeria Scene: Meria Town Items: Heal Berry x2, Gimile Coin, 10 Gallon Hat Ashley wakes up in bed, and Marina walks in. She tells you about some terrorists doing something... He asks her "I... am me?". "Ashley is Ashley." (that's a yes) They both go downstairs. Grandma asks if he's all right and mentions Valeria, which Ashley seems to remember from somewhere. Marina tells you to go see Valeria, and don't forget. (she's a real pain) As soon as you walk outside, you'll bump into Riruka. Ashley thinks he's really hurt her, but it turns out that she's just hungry. ^_^ They go inside. Ashley recognizes her as a Crest Sorceress. More complaining about Teleport Gems and being out of money. Grandma offers her some bread, and she says she'll just have one... until her stomach growls again, embarrassing the heck out of her. She'll take 5 now. (watch her cheeks move while she's eating!) No surprise, she's still looking for Valeria. They finally introduce themselves, then she joins your party. Now you can finally walk through town. Make sure you stop by the Personal Skill shop before you leave. The Weapon shop is in the same building. The old man in a house to the west has Excalibur the kitchen knife on his counter... and a Heal Berry in his barrel. Another house with cats in it has a Gimile Coin in a barrel, the house next door has a 10 Gallon Hat, and the house next to that has a Heal Berry. Exit town to the north to enter Meriabel Castle. Scene: Meriabel Castle Items: Full Revive, Potion Berry You can wander around the castle if you want. In the basement next to the army trucks, you'll find a chest with a Full Revive in it. Another room has a Potion Berry in a barrel. The guards won't let you into the throne room though, so head back to town and out the south exit. You'll find Valeria's house by searching on the high cliff in the middle of this area. Scene: Valeria Chateau Items: Stoldark (Shiturudaaku) Rune, Mau Gault (Mau Garuto) Rune You're greeted at the door and escorted to a room. After a minute, Irving walks in. Duh, Irving's last name is Valeria. Irving knows you both of you are, and talks a lot about ARMS. Irving's little sister walks in. Her name is Altaecia (Aruteishia). Her hair looks a lot blonder in the manual... You talk more with Irving. Apparently the Eleniak sisters are pretty famous. Riruka still doesn't think she's a worthy magic user though. Irving eventually leaves the room, allowing you access to the whole place. This place seems to be the ARMS Headquarters. You can save your game on the first floor. The central elevator lets you move between the three floors. You'll find the Stoldark and Mau Gault Runes in bedrooms on the 2nd floor. After talking to everyone inside (or perhaps triggered by getting both Runes), when you leave the chateau, you'll meet two girls outside. They tell you that you need to go back inside and meet Irving on the 3rd floor. Go back upstairs and meet Irving in his study (on the left). He'll ask you have the right equipment. Choose #1 to say no and #2 for yes. When you say yes, he'll pull out a gun and shoot one of his cabinets, then he throws the gun to Ashley. The guards come in and Irving tells them to arrest him. Scene: Ilzubale Prison (Iruzubeiru) Monsters: Beast Pillar, Empusa, Barghest Items: Heal Berry x3, Pretty Ribbon, Jail Card Yelling at the guard doesn't seem to help, but Riruka comes to visit Ashley. She tells him not to worry. The guard comes back and takes you to the real prison. Apparently this prison is on an island, making it tough to escape. The head of the prison gives you and some other convicts a long speech about it. Ashley is thrown in a cell, where Riruka visits him again. After talking for a bit, there's a loud crash. Riruka doesn't want to leave Ashley there, but he tells her that he's all right. You now get control of Riruka. Talk to Ashley any time to get healed. Head north to the computer terminal, and choose the first option to open the north door. Go through the door and search the lockers for two berries and a Pretty Ribbon. The robot in the corner will blast you if you walk in front of it, but you can use your Flame Rod to toast it. Leave the room and go down the stairs. Walk across the bridge, shooting both robots before they shoot you. The terminal here mentions a Guard Creature. Go through the door. Ignore the door at the top of the ramp for now, and enter the door on the far side of the room. Go across another bridge and up the steps to another row of cells. Use the terminal to open the door here and go in. Blast the robots and use the terminal to open another door. Inside this one is a Save Point and some lockers with a Heal Berry and a Jail Card. Go back to Ashley's cell and use the Jail Card while facing the cell door to open it. Talk to Ashley (he'll re-equip himself) and then head back to the door you passed on the ramp. Go in and up the stairs to your left and through the door. You can see a guard down below here who will shoot at you if you try going down there. Instead, stand on the balcony east of him and throw a knife against the wall, which will bounce off and fall on his head, knocking him out. (switch characters by pressing Start) Go down there and through the door he was guarding, then down a long hallway. Make sure you fry any robot you see. Go through the door, up a ramp and past an orange door. Go through the door at the bottom. Ignore the terminal and cross the bridge and go up the stairs to another row of cells. Use the Jail Card on Brad's cell and talk to him. It seems Irving screwed him too. After Brad joins you, use his Kick Boots on the terminal to open the door. Open the lockers inside for a Magic Apple, Heal Berry, and a Mini Carrot. Head back to the orange door and kick it open. Talk to the head of the prison inside. (Actually, check out the side room first... I missed it) Boss: Prison Robot Gaonim (Gaonimu) ~ 1800 HP Right Hand ~ 1300 HP Use ARMS and Mau Gault to take out the Right Hand first while Riruka heals you. Then just beat on him until he blows up. As long as you heal every round, it's a piece of cake. The guy throws a fit as you walk out. Then another guy comes in the room and kills him. Scene: Shore As you walk along the shore, your group runs into Irving. Ashley doesn't like his explanation, so he socks him in the gut and walks off. The same dude you saw before is watching from on top of a tower as guards talk below. Chapter 6) The Telepaths Scene: ARMS Conference Room, Valeria Chateau Items: Tsuushin (Your own personal Cell Phone) Somehow you end up back in Irving's conference room. Brad and Irving talk about ARMS and code words... Then Irving's phone rings. After he hangs up, he tells you to go south and gives Ashley a communications device. It appears on your menu right below the status icon. The front door is locked, so head out the back. You might want to go back to Meria Town to upgrade your ARMS and your Personal Skills. When you're ready, head south and search near the cliff to find a cave. Scene: Under Traffics Cave (Andaatorafikkusu) Monsters: Gob, Dryad, Tattseruburumu Items: March Blast ARM (Maruchiburasuto), Moon Stone, Crest Graph, Map Scope Walk a little ways until you come to a box of dynamite and a big rock. Use your Flame Rod on the box to blow up the rock, then go through the door. In the next room, kick the box up against the rock, then blast it to break the rock. The next room has three boxes. Kick the rightmost box east once, then south four times. Blow it up to destroy two rocks. Then blow up the leftmost box to destroy one rock. Walk around a rock and kick the last box east three times (against the wall), then south five times and blow it up. Exit to the south. You'll see some gems, but you have to go through the east door. You'll be in a watery area with small wooden rafts. Get on the first one and kick the west wall to push off. Get on the eastern raft and kick off to the north. Open the chest to get March Blast, a Bayonet Cartridge. Use it on Ashley to receive the March Blast ARM. Go back to the center island and kick off on the western raft. Exit out the southern door. Blow up the box and pick up the gems, then go through the southern opening. Kick the box off the ledge, then kick it to the north until it's in front of the half-hidden rock. Blow it up and enter to find two chests. You'll find a Moon Stone and a Crest Graph. Go back and kick the box off the ledge again, but this time kick it to the south and blow it up. Go through the south door. Kick both boxes off the ledge, then blow them up one at a time to reach the chest. It has the Map Scope in it. Leave the room and come back, then kick both boxes off the ledge to form a bridge and cross it. Go through the south door to find a Save Point. In the next room you find an injured man. While you're deciding what to do, Irving calls. He traces your location and tells you to go out the south exit, then head southeast to the foot of a mountain where you'll find the town of Damzen. You head out. Scene: Field Monsters: Gob, Trilobite, Keraino Items: Lucky Card You'll notice now that the Map Scope gives you a small map in the corner of the screen. Head southeast and search the bright patch of ground to find the town. If you search right off the beach east of town, you'll find a Lucky Card. Scene: Damzen (Damutsen) Items: Mystic Word, Heal Berry x2, Mitten A happy western place. As soon as you enter, search the barrel on your left to find Mystic Word. It's a Gear that will raise Riruka's magic abilities. Make sure you visit the Magic Shop to use your new Crest Graph. Search a barrel next to the Saloon for a Heal Berry, and one inside for a Mitten, a Gear that raises defense. If you buy something from the bartender, he'll tell you that you should head northeast. A barrel outside of Gallows Pole has another Heal Berry. Talk to the doctor in the Clinic and he'll take care of the injured guy. He's very embarrassed for causing so much trouble. Riruka tells you to call Irving. Irving says some stuff, then is interrupted by two girls, Kate and Amy. Irving says that they are Telepath Mages... Now the people in the saloon will start talking about the Telepath Tower. Go to the house west of the windmill and talk to the old man upstairs. He tells you that the Telepath Tower is south of Damzen. When you leave the house, Irving calls again and you tell him what you just learned. You tell him that you'll head over to the tower. Scene: Suspicious Shop Items: Goat Doll, Funny Sandals If you follow the bartender's advice and head northeast, you'll find a small house northeast of the circle of rocks. This is the Kaiju Card shop. In here, you can view "trading cards" of all the monsters in the game, even bosses! The cards tell give you a rather large drawing of the monster, all its stats and weaknesses, and what item it might carry. Interesting. Sorta irritating though, since I was already trying to keep track of this stuff the hard way... Downstairs, another guy will let you change the names of your characters. There are also two magically sealed chests and a robot blocking another stairway. When you get Duplicators, you can open the two chests and get a Goat Doll and the Funny Sandals, which increase your encounter rate. Scene: Telepath Tower Monsters: Dark Light, Critter, Rat Monkey Items: Treasure Call Tool, Teleport Gem, Mini Carrot, Revive Fruit x2, Crest Graph, Cracker Rave ARM, Lucky Card x2 You start out in a large room with glowing boxes and closed doors. Your goal is to throw a wooden box at each of the three glowing boxes. When you hit one, it turns red. Stand just to the side of the two that are up above in order to hit them. When you hit all three, a door to the south opens. Go through and up a couple sets of stairs to another door. The next room has a lot of big gears and a computer terminal (the Network System). Go out the open door to the south and up more steps. You'll be in a room with a chest and a lever. You can't get to either yet, so go out the south door and up more steps. You'll end up on the ledge above the lever. Jump off onto the platform with the lever on it and pull the lever. The bridge above you will lower. Jump off and go back up the south stairs and across the bridge. Still can't get to the chest. Go up more stairs to reach a Save Point. Go out the west door. Turn right and go around the corner to find a lever. Pull it to unlock the door in the last room. If you go back in, you'll see that the door leads to an elevator. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor to reach that chest. Open it to find a new Tool, the Treasure Call. It works just like the Radar in Wild Arms, that is, when you use it, any chest or hidden item in the room that you're in will blink and beep. Go back up to the 4th floor and onto the staircase. You'll find a chest with a Teleport Gem in it. If you keep going up the stairs though, you'll fall into a crack in the floor. Go back and take the elevator up to the 5th floor. Go out the west door to reach the chests on the other side of the crack. Open them to get a Mini Carrot, a Revive Fruit, and a Crest Graph. Go back up the stairs and take the door to the left of the elevator. Go up more stairs to a room with a bunch of levers. I'll number them: S 10 9 8 7 6 W 5 4 3 2 1 N Pull them in this order: 1, 2, 5, 4, 2, 3, 7, 9, 3, 4, 3 to reach the exit. Leave the room, then come back in and pull levers 10, 6, and 4 to reach the white chest. Have Brad kick it to receive a new ARM (Kurakkaareibu). Go out the south door and up the stairs. And go up more stairs. You'll get to a noisy room with a lot of cubes in it. The center crystal starts glowing... A sequence is shown where Vinsfeld address all of Filgaia by appearing in every reflective surface across the country. I really wish I knew what he's saying, because I'm sure it's important. I think Vinsfeld is part of a terrorist group called "Odessa". Suddenly, the image shuts off. Brad kicks the machine a few times. Pink smokes builds up behind you, and a monster appears. Boss: Vajesta (Vajesuta) ~ 2600 HP Right Hand ~ 1100 HP Left Hand ~ 1100 Your new arms will do heavy damage, so keep firing with them while healing with Riruka. Your attacks will miss while he's flashing, so don't shoot. You'll get a ton of experience and two Lucky Cards for beating him, so use a Lucky Card if you have one. When the fight is over, Brad suggests going back to Damzen. Chapter 7) Terrorists Scene: Damzen Go back to the house west of the windmill and talk to the people inside. When you leave, a girl will be waiting outside for you. She knows something about the terrorists and tells you to head east to Gall Wing. You also have to name the... girl... or bat, whatever it is. The default name is Mariabel (Mariaberu). She then teleports away, and instantly Irving calls. You keep him up to date on what just happened. Time to head east. Go as far east as you can, up onto the plateau. Search near the bright spot on the eastern cliffs to find a cave. Scene: Ponpoko Mountain Monsters: Keraino, Doryuu, Shrieker Items: Headgear, Crest Graph The first room has a strange rotating pyramid in it, and the south door is chained shut. Head out the north door and up a ramp. When you reach a room with a train track in it, head out the east door first. There are a lot of gems in this room and two lifts. Open the chest on the far side of the room for a Headgear. The lift doesn't work, so head out the east door across from the platform with a lift on it. In the next room you'll see a cart teetering on the edge of a hole in the floor. First go through the north door and open the chest for a Crest Graph, then come back. Kick the cart into the hole, then jump in after it. Kick the cart again to get it moving. You'll jump over the hole and end up next to a computer. Search the right side of the computer to find a pretty glowing stone, then pull the giant lever on the left side. Choose option #1 to switch it on. This powers all of the lifts. Jump on the lift to the right and head out the east door into the room with the two lifts. Get on the one on the right side and walk around the corner until you get to a hole in the floor. Fall in the hole and you'll wind up on the platform with the lift. Get on this lift and you'll be carried up to a Save Point. Continue north until you reach the exit. Scene: On the Mountain You run into a dude on the mountain, who Ashley immediately tells to leave because of dangerous terrorists in the area. The guy already knows. Brad seems irritated, and the guy attacks. Geez, just like a terrorist to attack innocent people... Boss: Ptoromaea (Toromea) ~ 3200 HP He has an attack that will hit everyone for around 200, but he only used it once on me. Otherwise, he'll hit one of you for 200-300. Hit him with your ARMS until he gives up, and heal whoever he attacks. After the fight, your group will confront the terrorists in front of their ship. They recognize you from the prison. They were the guys outside after you left. You might also recognize one of them as Caina from the end of Chapter 4. You hear another voice (Vinsfeld, most likely), then Odessa gets in their ship and flies off. Chapter 8) Ashley and Marina Scene: ARMS Conference Room, Valeria Chateau Ashley's pretty pissed off that you couldn't stop them. You all have a chat with Irving about the evilness of terrorism, then Irving walks out. "What now?" asks Riruka. Ashley says that he'll go back to Meria, and Riruka asks if he'll give the pretty stone to Marina. He's not too sure, so she asks "Well aren't Ashley and Marina lovers?" Ashley of course is like, "What are you saying?!" so she teases him some more. You get control of just Ashley. Brad just wants to relax, and Riruka playfully tells you to hurry to Marina. The guy right outside the door tells you about a Reflector in the center of the forest to the southwest. This is probably a bug, since you don't need to know this until later. Well, time to go see Marina. Scene: Meria Town Tony, Scott, and Tim greet you at the entrance to the town. Tony claims that Tim is very interested in some girl, which he denies. Scott doesn't seem to know what the hell is going on. Tony and Tim continue yelling at each other until Ashley breaks it up and finally asks Scott what's going on. He brings up Marina and Tim says something to which Ashley replies "Marina and I aren't like that..." He gets frustrated and walks off. Scene: Marina's House Item: Mystic Apple "I'm back, Marina." They talk for a minute, and Ashley gives her the stone. She loves it and thanks him. Search the barrel right next to you for a Mystic Apple (was this always here?). Reload your ammo while you're here. When you try to leave the town, Riruka and Brad show up, as does Marina. Brad says that they have another mission. Ashley tells Marina not to worry, then your group walks off. Scene: ARMS Conference Room, Valeria Chateau Irving talks about the king of Meriabel and the king of Silverant. He suggests going to Silverant Country to find the Live Reflector. Riruka says that it was a Lost Technology. Irving gives you letter and you get to leave. Head outside and southwest to the forest. Search to find a big pyramid, and go in. Scene: Live Reflector (Raiburifurekutaa) Item: Power Apple You're in a greenish looking temple. Go up the right ramp and in the side door. You'll stop to talk first about the terrorists, then when you go in you'll find Tony, Scott, and Tim. Ashley yells at them, asking what they're doing in such a dangerous place. Riruka comments that Scott doesn't sound very cute... ^_^; (Scott speaks very formally) I'm not sure what their reason is, but Tony says something about Tim's power. The three join your group. Go down the ramp and through the door. Use the terminal in the next room. You try to activate the reflector, but it doesn't work. There's a bright flash, and a monster appears. Ashley tells the kids to get out. Boss: Elebart (Erebaruto) ~ 2500 HP Right Hand ~ 1000 HP Left Hand ~ 1000 HP This isn't much of a fight. ARM, ARM, Heal until you kill it. You get a Power Apple for winning. Ashley tries the reflector again, but it still won't work. Tony says that it needs more power, then Tim starts glowing. He says that it's the power of the Guardian Odoryuk (the Guardian of Life), then he starts floating, much to his surprise. The ball of light shoots towards the reflector. Everything seems alright now, so everyone walks out into the central room. There are three pictures on the walls. Touch the green one to activate a portal to Silverant Forest. The yellow picture leads to a volcano, and the red one to a mountain, but it tells you that the generators for both are not working. Once the green portal is activated, step in. You'll bounce around some satellites, then come back down to Filgaia. Scene: Odessa Hideout The boys of Odessa are discussing their plans. Ptoromaea says his power plant is 60% operational, or something like that. Vinsfeld tells him to hurry up. The names of the four henchmen are now revealed to you (as if you didn't read the manual...). They are Caina, Ptoromaea, Judecca, and Antenora, who along with their leader Vinsfeld make up the terrorist group Odessa. There's a lot of plotting. Chapter 9) Silverant Country Scene: Reflector Ashley's group lands in another reflector. The blue picture will activate the portal back to Meriabel, but obviously you don't want to go back yet. Leave the reflector and search the middle of the forest to find Silverant Castle. Scene: Silverant Castle (Shiruvaranto Shiro) Items: Red Cap, Olive Branch, Silver Harp, Clear Chime, Blue Bracelet You immediately go see the Queen and hand her the letter from the King of Meriabel. I guess he wants to join forces against Odessa, and I think the Queen decides that she wants to meet with the King of Meriabel. Then a guard runs in. The terrorists have attacked Halmetts Town. Ashley gets permission to go investigate. You can wander around the castle now. One of the guards tells you that Halmetts Town is to the east. Ring the bell in the western part of the castle to wake up the sleeping guard in the eastern half, then go open the treasure chest for a Red Cap. Then go to the library and search the bookshelf near the far wall to find a switch. Stand on the table to go down to the treasure room. Open the chests for an Olive Branch, a Silver Harp, a Clear Chime, and a Blue Bracelet. As in the first game, these items are very useful for Mystic-ing, since they won't disappear. You'll have to push the switch in this room too to get back upstairs. Now you're ready to head outside. Scene: Field Monsters: Peryuton Items: Duplicator, Bullet Charge There's a small niche in the mountain directly south of the castle. Search there for a Duplicator. Also search in the circular shrubby area to the east for a Bullet Charge. To the northeast you'll find the town of Halmetts. Scene: Halmetts Your team will automatically start talking as soon as you enter. Ashley suggests you search the town, so your team splits up. Nobody sees any sign of life. Suddenly the bell tower rings. Brad thinks it's a trap, and Ashley rushes over to push Riruka out of the way of an explosion. Judecca appears on a rooftop and introduces himself. He throws a ball of energy at you, forcing you into a fight. Boss: Tarask (Tarasku) ~ 3700 HP Crystal (Kurisutaru) ~ ? This guy didn't do anything even remotely interesting. Just keep hitting him until Judecca intervenes. After the fight, Tarask will cover everything in darkness. Ashley hears the demon inside of him speak, and he can't fight it off. When the darkness clears, Tarask is gone and the three of you are unconscious. Judecca isn't sure what happened, but that doesn't stop him from throwing you in a cell. Scene: Golgoda Prison (Gorugoda Keijou) Monsters: Bone Drake, Ghoul, Wight Items: Lucky Card, Heal Berry Riruka saw Ashley do something during the last fight that worries her, but she keeps it to herself. In the northwest corner of the room is a block that's slightly out of place. Have Brad kick it, then search it. You can pull this block around by holding down the O button and pressing back. Pull it out of the way, and you'll find a hole underneath where it used to be. Go down the hallway and this time push the block forward so it'll fall off the ledge. Watch out for the spikes in the floor and first go east and open the chest for a Lucky Card, then head west through the door. Go down the steps and flip the switch, then back up and through the door. Avoid the spears and open the chest for a Heal Berry. Go out the south door. The next room has a winding narrow path with a lot of spear traps. Exit south again to an even narrower ledge. Get a good running start to avoid the traps. Run past the closed door and throw a knife at the blue pillar. Run back and through the door you just opened. Save in the next room, then head north. Don't search the blue stone in the next room or you'll be hit by a spear. Go north and you'll find a hall with a lot of blue stones. Open the third one down for a chest with a Crest Graph and the sixth for the exit. Go through, then down the steps. Kick the board back and forth until the door opens, then go through. (the blue stone tells you to do that) The hint in the next room is to use fire, so use the Fire Rod to sneak a fireball past the spears and light the torch. It might take awhile. Pick up some gems, then go to the next room where you'll see some people. Keep pulling on the lever until the door opens. The people of Halmetts are in the cell. You introduce yourselves as the people who will get rid of Odessa. After talking to them, Ashley goes off by himself and the guy blocking the door lets him through. There's rubble blocking the way, so go through the west door. The next room is dark with traps on the floor. You can't walk over the traps, so avoid them and find your way to an exit on the east side of the room. Go through the door straight across the hall to find a meeting room full of Odessa soldiers. After listening in, go back out the west door and up the steps to the north. The wall will collapse and block your way back. Head south out the exit. Scene: Outside Judecca immediately confronts you outside. Riruka and Brad have been captured and are hanging on crosses behind you. (This seems to be a pretty common form of bondage for the Japanese...) Judecca summons Tarask again, who smacks Ashley around. The demon voice speaks to him again, and Ashley asks for the power. As Ashley glows, Mariabel rescues Riruka and Brad. Mariabel says "The same light...", referring back to the beginning of Chapter 4, I assume. Boss: Tarask ~ 2500+ HP Crystal ~ ? Ashley is dressed to take names in a spiky black and red outfit. He finally understands the power inside of him. Save your FP until you have 50, then use your Banishing Buster ability to toast him. That should kill him. When you win, you'll learn the Access Force. An exhausted Ashley transforms back to Ashley. Scene: Silverant Throne Room The queen gives Ashley the key to activating another gate in the Live Reflector. Irving shows up and stays behind to talk to the queen. As you're about to leave the castle, you'll run into the villagers. They're amazed by Ashley's ability and ask if he's the hero. As usual, the three deny that they're heroes. The villagers also want to know if you'll be fighting Odessa. Of course, ARMS will stand up to them. Scene: Odessa Hideout Vinsfeld and Antenora discuss Judecca's stupidity. They also talk about a Black Horseman. They might be referring to the transformed Ashley... Three Days Later... There's a flashback of Ashley going home to Marina. He tells her that people are calling him a hero, and as the hero he needs to save the world. Marina doesn't understand. She wonders who he really is. Ashley doesn't really know what to say, and Marina rushes out. Goodnight... Chapter 10) Lost Technologies Scene: Irving's Office Irving and Mariabel talk to your group about what happens next. It looks like the Black Horseman does refer to Ashley. The Alternate Form Black Horseman is how they refer to it. Mariabel also mentions Agartram a few times. Irving also mentions an Emma Motor... a reference to the first Wild Arms. Might be one of the Lost Technologies they keep talking about. When they're finally done talking, your next step is to find Aguelite from Horust and Gelmatron from the Ray Line. You'll probably want to go to Meria Town first though. When you're ready, head back to the reflector. Scene: Reflector You can now activate the yellow and red portals too, along with the green one that takes you to Silverant Castle. If you use the phone, Mariabel lets Kate talk to you, and she tells you that you'll find Horust through the red portal and to the west. She also says that the Ray Line is through the yellow portal and to the north. Scene: Field (Volcano) Monsters: Berserker, Assassin Bug Head northeast and you'll find the Ray Line temple. There's a hidden item on the peninsula to the east, but I didn't catch what it was. Scene: Ray Line Monsters: Jelly Blob, Laughing Haunt, Lilliput Items: Barrette, Teleport Gem, Bolt Fanning ARM Walk up to the first doorway, and you'll hear screaming. Head through the door and you'll be attacked. Sort of. You'll see a giant clown kicking the crap out of some animals. (they were referred to as "lizard man A & B") After some discussion, you decide to fight. Boss: Undine (Undiine) ~ 2000 HP Stomach ~ 3000 HP The strongest attack I saw was he threw a rock at me that did 250. Big deal. But as soon as I took out his stomach, he started pounding on me, doing a 550 point stone throw. Still, he's not that tough. You get a One Gella Coin for winning. The two lizards introduce themselves as Toka (green one) and Ge (brown). Ge seems to only be able to say "ge" over and over. After a long talk, they both come along with you. Go through the north door. Walk up to the edge, and Ge will throw Toka across the gap onto the lever. Cross the bridge and flip the other switch to get Toka back across. Toka starts singing ("Punch, Drunk"?). Ashley asks him if he's all right and you keep going. Head north again, down the hall, and into a big room. When you walk past the statues, the walls come in to crush you, but you jump out of the way. Walk over to the west wall and push the button to reset the walls. The group discusses how to get across, then decides to just run for it, but Ge is too slow and ends up holding the walls in place. Toka gives him an encouraging "Let's go, Bushido!" (they even made it rhyme!) and then starts singing. Ashley is confused, and the three of you get together. Walk up to Ge and kick him in the stomach. Wasn't that fun? Ok, go over to the ghost statue on the right and pull it out. Push it into place in front of Ge, and he'll jump over it to safety. After more talking, the walls crush the statue and return to their original positions. The trap won't go off again. Head out the west door and you'll get to a treasure chest with a Barrette in it. Head back to the trap room and go through the north door. You'll end up underneath the chest you just opened. Walk over to the edge towards the lever. Everyone looks at Toka, and he starts complaining, but goes along with it anyway. Ge tosses him onto the lever and everyone else starts walking off until Riruka stops them. Just leave him there for now and go through the doorway to find a Save Point. Head south again and open the chest for a Teleport Gem. Go down the steps and pull the greenish block into one of the two holes so that you can walk across. Go out the door and down the stairs to the north. You need to push the two crates next to the statues over to form a bridge. Pull the one closest to the gap to the north, then push it against the west wall. Then move the over crate S, E, N to the wall, then pull it west once and push it the rest of the way. Pull the lever in the next room to free Toka. Head back up the steps and south through the door behind the two torches. Examine the stone face. There's a picture in this conversation that I guess is a light bulb, since it comes after Toka saying "Oh, it's simple!". Interesting. Too bad I couldn't understand what his explanation was. Anyway, Ge sticks his tail in the face's mouth and the wall opens. Ge doesn't look too happy. Get behind the stone face and kick it to get Ge free. Go out the south door and down the halls until you get to a roped off lever. Ge grabs Toka by the tail and lowers him down. I think Toka sneezes and Ge drops him. While everyone is watching the wall open, Toka falls into the pit. Well, go through the door anyway. Go up the steps and across the bridge, then fall down onto the ledge to get the chest (Bolt Fanning ARM). Make sure you use the item to get the ARM. Jump off the ledge, then go back around to get back up to the doorway. Go through and down some steps. In the next room you'll find Toka a little woozy from his fall. Throw a knife at him to snap him out of it. He pulls the lever and joins you again. Go up and open the chest. You'll find the Gelmatron crystal that Irving was looking for. There's an argument between Toka and Ashley, and the lizards attack you. They're actually working for Odessa. Boss: Toka ~ 2000 HP Ge ~ 3000 HP I took out Ge first, since he seemed like he'd be the bigger threat. I just hit him with my ARMS and had Riruka heal herself every round. Toka has an attack that hits everybody (including himself and Ge) for ~250. After you win, they run off and you leave the temple. Time to head to Horust. Go back to the reflector and go in the red portal. Scene: Field (Island) Monsters: Berserker, Assassin Bug, Cockatrice Items: One Gella Coin, Power Apple You'll find Horust Town near the smaller black rocks, on the other side of the plateau. If you haven't saved in awhile, get to the town right away, because one surprise attack could kill you off. The apple is on the southeast shore. Scene: Horust Town Items: Bomb Tool, Mirror Shield The first building that you see is the Inn. Go inside and up to the second floor. Use your Treasure Call tool and it'll blink on one of the beds. Search that bed for Brad's Bomb Tool. It works exactly like Rudy's bombs from WA. Search a barrel in the first house next to the inn to find a Mirror Shield. It's a secondary item that prevents petrification, not armor. If you need some money for armor though, save your game and fight a few Assassin Bugs. When you're ready, enter the mine. Scene: Aguel Mine (Agueru) Monsters: Water Ripper, Galleon, Raid Scissors Items: Heal Berry x3, Crest Graph, ABM Predator ARM. Go down the mine shaft until you get to some big boulders blocking the way. Use Brad's bombs to blow them up, then continue into the next room. You'll find more gems, and if you keep going, you'll get to a Y-intersection. Go left first and bomb the boulder to get by. The next room has a chest with a Crest Graph in it. Also bomb the crates for some Heal Berries. Go back to the intersection and take the right passage, following it until you get to a Save Point. Follow the tracks into the next room, then bomb or throw the crates in the corner and pull the switch to open the gate. First, head east and down a corridor until you have to bomb some rocks out of the way. Go in the small opening to the north to find a room with three crates, a white chest, and a rotating pyramid. Search the crates for Heal Berries, then have Brad kick open the chest to get the ABM Predator (puredetaa) ARM. I still don't know what these pyramids do, so just leave it alone and head back up to the yellow gate and pass through it. You'll get to a room with what looks like a drilling machine. Drop a bomb next to the end closest to the sign to activate it. Once the rock is gone, you can go through the door. You're now in some sort of tomb with a large stone blocking the door to the north. Drop a few bombs in front of it, and it will explode. The next room has four platforms and a red diamond in the center. When you bomb one of the platforms, it rises into the air for a short time. Run around the room, placing a bomb on each platform. When all four are in the air, the diamond turns blue and the door opens. Open the chest in the next room to get the Aguelite. Since you now have both stones, the group stops to talk about them for awhile, wondering what Irving will do with them. You automatically leave the mine. When you're done upgrading stuff in the town, head outside and use a Teleport Gem. Valeria Chateau should be the second option. Chapter 11) Power of the Guardians Scene: Irving's Office, Valeria Chateau As soon as you enter the chateau, you'll find yourselves in the office with Irving and Mariabel. Mariabel tells Riruka about Emma and the Emma Motor, then Irving gets to your next mission, which brings up a discussion on Guardians. Once again you gain control of just Ashley, so it looks like it's time to visit Marina. Scene: Meria Town As soon as you enter, you'll see the three boys being chased by three men. Tony calls out to you for help and hides behind you. The three guys run off, and you get a phone call from Kate. She talks about Odessa and Meria Town, and then you see a movie sequence of Odessa's ship flying overhead. Scene: Odessa's Ship Ptolomaea and Antenora are in charge and yell some orders out. A dragon drops out of the ship. Scene: Valeria Chateau Ashley meets up with Brad and Riruka inside. There's mention of Area 51... Suddenly there's a rumbling sound, and Irving is shown in the bridge of another ship, powered by the Emma Motor. Kate and Amy are engineers. Irving calls it "Valeria Chateau's secret". So basically, the entire chateau pulls itself out of the ground and flies to Meria Town. Boss: Arufael (Arufaeru) ~ 5000 HP Right Foot ~ 1500+ HP Left Foot ~ 1500+ HP This guy didn't do anything even remotely damaging to me. After the fight, your group goes to check on the town. After talking to the boys, you convince Tim to follow you to Valeria Chateau. He talks with Irving for awhile. The ground shakes a bit, then you're given instructions on how to fly the chateau. Chateau Instructions: Press Up or the Circle button to go forwards. Press Left or Right to turn. Press Triangle to get to the menu. Press X to get the mini menu. The first option lets you continue flying. The second option brings you to the ship's bridge. The third option lets you land on a landing pad, or auto-pilots you to a landing pad. If you choose the third option, you'll go to the Baskar pad. As soon as you land, you'll get a phone call from Irving. He tells you to go into the forest. Just walk your way straight north and search the end peninsula for Baskar. Scene: Baskar Village Remember Baskar Village from Wild Arms? It was the Indian looking place with the big fluffy dog and the altar to Zephyr, Guardian of Hope. Tim was born here 12 years ago. Your group goes to talk to the village elder. There's some back info on Tim and his mother, Sabrina. You now get control of Tim. Go into the empty house to the northeast and look at the red crystal on the table. A girl comes in and startles Tim, who drops the crystal under the table. This girl talks pretty fast. You'll have to enter her name (default: Koretto) I named her Colette. Colette turns out to be a Medium, like Tim. There's a lot of talk about Tim and the Guardians. Tim now joins your party for good, with the rune of the Guardian of Life, Odoryuk. He doesn't have any Tools yet. When you're ready to leave, Colette will be waiting for you at the village entrance. She says to take her to a village to the south, in the middle of the forest. Search a bit to the south and you'll find a temple. Scene: Tim's Trial Monsters: Fairy Light Items: Crest Graph x3, Heart Leaf, Mini Carrot x2 You convince Colette to wait for you at the entrance. Go north and talk to the floating monkey. His name is Pooka, and he uses "no da" like Chichiri. (which I think Pioneer decided to translate as "ya know"...) Anyway, Pooka confuses the hell out of Tim and decides to join you as Tim's first Tool. Pooka will fly around the screen and push switches for you. In the next room, you'll find a large pillar with two orange buttons on it. Have Tim walk up to one and push it in, then fly Pooka over to the other one and press the O button. The wall will open to the north. The next hall has two chests high up out of reach, so just head out the east door. The next room has pits to the north and south. Go stand on the north platform and have Pooka push the button. The platform will slide over to the door, but you have to walk off before it moves back. If you want to go back, go through the door and come back, and you'll find the platform will now form a bridge. You'll find another two button pillar leading to a treasure chest with a Heart Leaf in it. Go back to the big room and cross the southern platform. Go in this door and up a ramp to find the two chests you missed before. Get one of the chests on the screen and use Pooka to fly over and open it. Both have Crest Graphs in them. Head out the north door and down a ramp into the Heart Leaf room. Go out the west door. In this room, pressing the button on the right raises the two platforms for a short time. You'll need to stand just off of the small ramp and use Pooka to press the button, then run across the first platform, up the ramp, then across the second platform before it lowers. Use Pooka again to press the button up here and cross the third platform before it lowers. Go out the north door and down the hallway. Go through the south door first and open the two chests for two Mini Carrots. Make sure Riruka is in your party, then go through the east door and Tim will stop and talk to Pooka. The room will shake and a big lizard will appear. Boss: Reguleus (Regyureusu) ~ 5000 HP This guy's attack will put you to sleep and poison you, so it's a good idea to have Riruka in your party. Your ARMs should be doing between 600 and 1000, so this fight shouldn't be much trouble. If you have to, use Force Shift until you can Access/Night Fencer him. Go through the east door and use the Save Point. Walk up to the doorway and Pooka will tell everyone about Combine. Tim then walks through the door alone. Use Pooka to push the button on your right, then run across the platforms to the next button. Do this a few more times and pass a chest that you'll come back to later. Go north, then hop off the ledge you're on. Ignore the button for now and go up the ramp and out the west door. You'll find that chest, which has a Crest Graph in it. Go back and use Pooka to reach the northeast door. The platform moves fast, so get as far away from the button as you can. Keep walking north until Tim starts glowing. Odoryuk will talk to you and you'll get attacked. Boss: Gehenna Neros (Gehenanerosu) x2 ~ 3000 HP These guys also puts you to sleep and poison you. Attacking is useless, since they continually heal each other. As Pooka says, you want to Guard until you have Force Level 2 and use Combine, which is hard to do if you're asleep. As soon as you wake up, they'll put you to sleep again, making this a very annoying fight. MAKE SURE you switch your rune to someone other than Odoryuk, or you'll never win the fight. You can do this from the first battle menu. (yes, Tim combined with Odoryuk makes a cute little unicorn, but he won't help you win this one) Hit them once with Moa Gault to win. You'll return to the rest of the guys, and Pooka will teach them Combine. Tim returns to the temple entrance to meet Colette. They run outside into the flowers (aww...) and get all snuggly. (hey...) Then you go back to the village. Scene: Baskar Village The elder gives Tim 10 Heal Berries, 3 Potion Berries, and a Mini Carrot. Tim goes upstairs to rest and overhears the elder downstairs... plotting to kill him. The elder hears Tim and his men surround him. They close in, chanting "Kill..." and leave Tim's lifeless body on the floor. Scene: ARMs Conference Room Everyone else has gathered in the conference room for a meeting. Baskar's elder is there too. There's arguing about Tim, then an alarm goes off and Kate warns of two intruders. There's a mention of "De La Metallica", an important book from the first game, but I don't know what was said about it. The elder and Colette run out. You can save right outside the room, then go into the elevator. Judecca and Antenora are shown on some stairs in the Chateau, then Tony and Scott talk, then you face off against Antenora. Boss: Antenora ~ 6000 HP She can do over 600 to a single person, or hit everyone for 300 or so. And she also has a poison/sleep attack. I guess you can't use Combine without Tim, because it won't work. Just use your ARMs and defensive spells. After the fight, Antenora will teleport away. Tim, in the meantime, has "gotten better" and is pacing around in his room worrying about death. He hears Colette scream, but is too depressed to do anything until Tony and Scott show up. Tony finally convinces Tim to do something, and he runs off. Judecca has found the elder and Colette, and is holding them at gunpoint. There's a bright flash of light, and Gurdijeff roars before Tim appears in his place. Boss: Judecca ~ 4000 HP One on one, Judecca vs. Tim. Yes, Tim looks a little overmatched. Attack to build your Force level and use Heal Berries when necessary. Three Moa Gaults finished him off. Judecca teleports away when everyone else shows up, but leaves behind his pet. Kate and Amy scan it and tell you how to fight it. Meanwhile, it waits patiently for you to finish talking. Boss: Blastodon (Burasutoodon) ~5000 HP Right Cannon ~ 4000 HP Left Cannon ~ 2500 HP He's weak against fire, so give Moa Gault to the first person who gets 2 full Force blocks and use Combine on him. It won't take much more than that, but you can also use Tim or Riruka's Fire attacks. After the fight, they lock him down onto the catapult, but it breaks free. Ashley jumps on to hold him down, but the catapult starts moving with him on it. Before he's launched off, Ashley uses Access and gets away. Chapter 12) The Metal Bird Scene: Baskar Village Tim's still mad about the almost dying thing, but still wants to help the planet. Irving and the rest leave, while Tim says some final words to Colette and the elder. He leaves, and Colette goes after him. Scene: Meriabel Castle Irving, Ashley, Brad, Riruka, and Tim go to Meriabel to talk to the King. The king says that the three kingdoms, Meriabel, Silverant, and Gildograd are meeting at the Filgaia Summit. The king wants Irving to be there also to represent ARMS. Scene: 71st Filgaia Summit King Meriabel, Queen Silverant, Master Gildograd, and Irving begin the summit and discuss Odessa. Suddenly they're interrupted by Irving's phone (ominous music). Kate calls with news of Odessa. Irving then unveils a giant grappling hook, the Assault Anchor, that they shoot at Odessa's ship with your party inside of it. They refer to something as the "Gull Wing" (your airship from Wild ARMS), so I guess it refers to Odessa's ship. Scene: Gull Wing Monsters: Odessa Guard Go out the north door and down the hall. Kick the blue machine in the middle of the hall to destroy it. The next room has a Save Point, and the one after that has four doors. East: Go into the room before you hit the laser beam. Bust through some blue machines to reach the computer in the back. (if the computer doesn't work, go to the West section) Select option 1, then option 2 to turn off a barrier. Then use it again and select option 2 to find the C Code. Mine was TC6503. Leave the room and head east, kick a few machines and keep going. Go up the ramp and press the button to lower the bridge. Cross over and go up the other ramp, then use Pooka to press the switch again. Cross the bridge and use the computer. It asks for the C Code, so enter it and head back to the central room. West: Go into the room before you hit the laser beam. Pull out the block and push it into the other opening to make a bridge to the computer. Select option 1 on the computer, then option 2 to turn off the barrier. Use it again and select option 2, then option 1 to turn on a switch. Leave the room and head west. In the next room, use the computer to raise the bridge, then cross the bridge to a second computer. Choose the first option to activate a switch and the second option to find the A Code. Mine was TA2360. Cross back over the bridge to where the three blocks are. I'll label block 1 as the one closest to the wall, 2 is the middle one, and 3 is on the edge. Pull 3 to the west one space, then jump off and go back up the ramp and fall into the hole between blocks 1 and 2. Push block 1 west one space and then pull it south one space. Even though they aren't lined up, you can still walk across all three and get to the door. Go through, then up to the computer and select option 1 to activate the crane. Cross over the platform to the big computer. It asks for the A Code, so enter it and head back to the central room. North: In the upper right corner, you'll find five blocks. Pull them out and push them onto the platform with the rest of the blocks. When all the blocks are in place, the platform will fall to the floor, allowing you to reach the north door. In the next room, you'll find a winding bridge with tiles that will collapse when you step on them. The blocks that will fall are just barely noticeable while the room is rotating. There are two computers in the next room. If you went through the top door, you can reach both of them. There are traps here too, so if you fall, kick one of the blue machines and go back up the ramp. Choose option 2 on the top computer to turn a barrier off, then go south two rooms and take the west door. There's a computer in here with the B Code. Mine was TB8180. Go back north two rooms and fall onto the line of blue machines to reach the second computer. It asks for the B Code, so enter it and head back to the center room. When all three codes have been entered, go out the south door and you'll be stopped by Ptoromaea. Boss: Ptoromaea ~ 7500 HP He can hit everyone for around 150, but my force regeneration canceled that out. All I did was normal attacks (and Night Fencer) until I killed him. After the fight, he'll run off and Brad will keep Ashley from running after him. The place starts falling apart, so you call up Irving to get you out of there. He tells you to go to the cockpit, so get on the elevator Ptoromaea showed up on, then head north and look at the computer. The Gull Wing crashes into the water, and everyone climbs out on top and waits for the Chateau. Chapter 13) Search and Recovery, Magic & Data Tablets Scene: Meriabel Castle The King celebrates your victory and lets you use his hovercraft, which is to the west. Your mission is to find the three missing Data Tablets from the Gull Wing. Head into town first and stock up. Make sure you use all of your Crest Graphs and Tim's Personal Skill points and refill your ammo. Leave Meria Town and go to the hovercraft. It's marked on your map with a yellow square. You're given instructions on how to use it. Hovercraft Instructions: Press Up or the Circle button to go forwards. Press Left or Right to turn. Press Triangle to get to the menu. Press X to get off, but only when you're on a beach. Press Square to use the Map Scope. Scene: Inner Sea Monsters: Bower You now have to drive around in the sea and search for the three tablets. It's a pretty circular sea, so you won't get lost... unless you go down the river to the south. Tablet 1: Center of sea, next to island beach. Tablet 2: North center, next to the beach. Tablet 3: West center, next to the beach. Once you have all three, you have call Irving. He'll tell you to come back to Meriabel Castle. So... go back to Meriabel Castle. Scene: Meriabel Castle Once you enter the castle, you'll automatically go to the throne room. The King tells you to go to Sielje (Shieruje) next, and since Riruka doesn't want to use a Teleport Gem, he suggests you use a tunnel near Damzen to get there. Use a Teleport Gem or the Hovercraft to get to Damzen. Scene: Damzen The people in the town have information about the tunnel. Talk to one of the guys in the saloon to get an orange crystal. (oyakata no akashi) Some other guys in town give you leads on places to go. Head east to Ponpoko Mountain, and you start in the room with the spinning pyramid and locked door. Go to the locked door and use the orange crystal from your item menu. The door will open. Scene: Underground River Monsters: See Ponpoko Mountain (Chapter 7), Vacuumon, Cavetoraus Items: Dead Or Alive ARM, Freeze Rod Tool, Heal Berry, Migrant Hat, Duplicator Follow the river and go through the door. You'll be in a room with a series of walkways and purple flames. Go out the east door and open the chest to get the Dead Or Alive ARM for Ashley. Go out the southwest door and open the chest to get Riruka's second Tool, the Freeze Rod. Use the Freeze Rod on all three flames to make them disappear, then go out the south door. Go down the ramp and pull the crate until it's directly under the southern doorway. Then go up the ramp and throw a knife at the blue pillar. Jump onto the crate that just fell and go through the door. Open the chest for a Heal Berry, then keep going out the south door. Jump off a ledge from above to get to the chest here, which has a Migrant Hat in it. Ashley loves his cowboy hats. Do the same thing to get to the other chest, which has a Duplicator. Go out the southwest door. This room has two red switches on the floor that you need to pull the crates onto. Pull the crate onto the easternmost switch first to lower the second crate to the floor. Pull it west once and north twice to fill a hole. Then pull the first crate over to the other switch and go out the east door. Go down the hall and out the door. Scene: Snow Fields Monsters: Wendigo, Fluretti, White Fear Items: Mystic Apple Heading south will bring you to the Gate Bridge, so head northwest and search around the black rocks for a Mystic Apple. Then search the center of that area to find Sielje. Scene: Sielje Items: Serenade, Magic Feather, Baitsadasuto (Bites the Dust?) Stand in the center of the circle of light to be transported to the town. This is a town of magic users who know Riruka. One boy walks up and greets Riruka. You have to name him (default: Terii), so enter Terry. You can now explore the town. There are new weapons here, but they're expensive... You can take an elevator on your right up to the observatory, but there's not much to do there right now. In the northern part of town, you can walk along a narrow ledge to find two treasure chests. The Serenade is a hat for Riruka, and the Magic Feather is a hat for Tim. You need to use Pooka to get the Feather. Head into the library and talk to Karayan, then go up the stairs and to the left room to find Terry and MacGregor. After talking to MacGregor, you'll talk to Irving through a projection system. Terry seems to be concerned about Riruka, but she responds with "I hate you" and walks off... She goes to find Ashley and pulls him aside to talk about her sister. She then goes downstairs to look for something and an alarm goes off. As Ashley suspected, you find out that the three data tablets were stolen. Irving contacts you and tell you go head southwest to the Gate Bridge. MacGregor gives you the Gate Bridge Key. As you try to leave town, Terry stops Riruka and gives her the Baitsadasuto doll. They both seem happy now. Scene: Gate Bridge Monsters: Ninja Hound, Iron Maiden, Cray Puppet Use the Gate Bridge Key when you get to the entrance to unlock it. When you go in, the place will start shaking and you'll see Toka and Ge messing around with the bridge controls. Brad then goes over to another panel and fixes the bridge, but only temporarily. You have 5:00 to get across. In the first section, just avoid the robots. Don't worry if you get into a fight though, because time won't pass while you're fighting. In the second room, throw a knife at the blue pillar, then avoid the two narrow strips on the floor that will cause the gate to drop if you step on them. Avoid more robots... (or fight them...) In the next room, get close to the gate and then throw your knife diagonally at the pillar. More robots... then an empty room. Go through the last door and you'll be at the midpoint of the bridge. Toka and Ge will make their plans, then it's time to confront them. Boss: Toka ~ 3500 HP Ge ~ 4000 HP Ge can really pound on your guys (1200+), so take him out first. Use Lock On combined with the ABM Predator to finish the job quick. Have Riruka heal whoever Ge attacks to keep yourself alive. Boss: Kaizou Tarask ~ 4500 HP Crystal ~ 4500 HP HP This guy can also hit you for 1200+, or everyone for 400+. You shouldn't have any problem if you guys regenerate and Riruka heals every round. After the fight, save and leave the Gate Bridge. Scene: Field Monsters: Arch Bug, Melcom Kate will call you up on the phone as soon as you leave. She tells you that they detect the data tablets to the northwest. Search the far west to find a Sorcery Apple. You'll find two white pillars marking the entrance to Greenhel Forest. Scene: Greenhel Forest Monsters: Storas, Triffid, Barghest This is where Brad started the game. He tells the other about a village he knows of in the forest. There are flashbacks of Brad and another guy. If you missed any of the treasure chests before, you can pick them up now. Go the same way you went the first time, then over to Sebokku Village. Scene: Sebokku Village Items: Crest Graph, Teleport Opal, Data Tablet 3, Pulse Craster The first building to the left has an ARM in it. Have Brad kick the chest to get the Pulse Craster. There's a large dog in front of one of the buildings. If you talk to it, a girl comes running up, calling you Grandpa. It's Meryl, from the beginning of the game. You need to name the dog now, and no default name is given. I think you need to give it the same name you gave it before (Rush). Meryl says that it's been 5 years since Brad came to the village, and they talk. She leads you to a house where a boy is in a wheelchair. You need to name him too. (default is Billy) Brad reveals some information about Vinsfeld's background... I believe he was some sort of political leader in Brad's home country. The others are skeptical about Brad's loyalties, but he assures them that he's on ARMS's side. After you're done talking, check the barrel for a Crest Graph. Go talk to Rush, and he'll run off and bring you back a Teleport Gem and Data Tablet 3. The Teleport Gem turns out to be a Teleport Orb. Irving says the next town, Quartly, is to the southwest of the Inner Sea, so use the orb to teleport to your hovercraft. Drive over to Baskar, and then go down the little river to the side of it. The river will turn to the northwest and lead to a desert region. Park on the beach. Chapter 14) Infiltration Scene: Desert Item: Lucky Card, Duplicator, Bullet Charge Monsters: Antlion, Sand Scissors, Tsuin Tail On a peninsula to the north you'll find a Lucky Card. On the southwest peninsula you'll find a Hardy Apple? (green). Somewhere in the middle of the desert I found a Duplicator and a Bullet Charge. You need to search near the northwestern part of the desert to find a bridge that'll cross over the ravine. There's a dark orange circle where the bridge will appear. Scene: Quartly You can get new weapons and armor at the item shop here. When you get halfway through town, you'll be stopped by a woman with green hair. She asks you for a favor, but Ashley is suspicious... You ask for her name (default is Kanon). She walks off, and the rest of you go to the hotel to rest. During the night you discover that Brad is gone. Ashley goes outside and sees him talking to someone in the alley. He comes back inside, but Ashley doesn't like all the Slayheim business that's going on. When you're ready, leave through the north exit. Scene: Salt Field Monsters: Remnant, Necrozaulus, Makyarbul Items: Vitality Apple, Ambrosia Search the area to the southwest to find a Vitality Apple, and to the southeast you'll find an Ambrosia. Make sure you don't miss it. If you go into the center of the ring of pillars, you'd expect to find a town there... but searching there does nothing. I spent two hours talking to people in Quartly, reading the magazines in the PS shop, and talking to people again. I finally went outside and tried to use the Teleport Orb to warp to Valeria Chateau, and the orb malfunctioned and sent me to a tiny island. The orb will not malfunction UNLESS you've spoken to Karayan in Sielje and Riruka is your active character (the one shown on the screen). Search to find a house. Scene: Separated Island Agency (Ritou no Shutchoujo) Inside the house a blue haired dude will stop you, probably wondering how the hell you got there. He's a little nutso. Seems to have a problem with Sielje, and he tells you about the High Crests, then gives one to you and tells you his name is John Dee. One of the guys in Sielje mentioned him... Go outside the house and stay as close to the outside of the fence as possible to sneak your way around back. Then go up and open the treasure chest to get the Kazamidori, which I think protects you against Pinch Attacks. Teleport back to Sielje and talk to Karayan again to show him the High Crest. He'll take it and teleport away. Now you can come back to John Dee, and he'll teach you High Magic. Just remove some of your other spells to make room for the new ones. When you're ready, head back to Quartly. Go to the northeast edge of the salt field and you'll find another dark spot. Search there to find Slayheim Castle. Thanks to Rob (firstname.lastname@example.org) for pointing me in the right direction. Scene: Slayheim Castle (Sureihaimu Shiro) Monsters: Helterskelter, Brad Ruby, Nahat Gheist Items: Duplicator, Elven Boots, Lone Wolf, Prassband There's another rotating pyramid in here, but you still can't do anything with it... There are three doors to the north. Go in the right doorway, then keep heading north through another doorway. Examine the painting of a fire and choose the first option (Yes) to fix it. This will unlock the door to your left. Go through it and you'll see a flashback of Brad and his friend from before. Open the chest in here to get a Duplicator. Leave the room and go down the east hall, up the stairs and through the door to a room full of crates. Bomb away the crates in the middle of the room to get to the back. Go through the door and down some stairs. Push the blue button on the left wall to open the door, then go through. There's a Save Point in the next room. Go through the double doors to the north to watch another flashback. The center door will also be shown opening. Open the chest in this room to get the Lone Wolf hat, then head back to the main room with the three doors. Go in the left doorway, then keep heading north through another doorway. Kick the bookshelf that has the purple book on it to knock the book off. Pick it up. (Sukebebonderakkusu) Leave the room and head down the west hall and up the stairs and through the door. Stand behind the large metal spike thing and kick it. It will swing forward, then knock you across the pit. Open the chest to get the Elven Boots. Go through the north doorway and head down the steps. Push the blue button on the left wall to open the door, then go through. Save, then head back to the main room with the three doors. Go through the center door now and down the stairs. There's a blue button high on the wall and a plaque to your left giving you a clue. Go back up to the top of the steps and kick the pillar to the right of the door. It'll fall over and a chain reaction will lead to the button being pushed and the door opening. Go back down and through the door. You'll see another flashback. Open the chest to get the Prassband. Now head back up to the main room and you'll hear a voice. Kanon will walk in and talk to you, and she's pissed off. She's draws her knife and attacks. Boss: Kanon ~ 5000 HP She has a nasty attack that does 1400+ and another that does 1700+, so this won't be your regular boss fight cakewalk. Have Riruka cast Quick on herself twice to give her the first attack, unless you're comfortable with attacking after Kanon. She attacked and killed Tim every round, and I revived him right afterward. That's the way the entire fight went, so if you're lucky, it'll happen to you too. After the fight, Kanon runs off and you can leave the castle. Head back to Quartly. Scene: Quartly Inn When you get to town, your party will be in the inn. Ashley decides to call Irving. He wants you to check out the desert area, which a guy next to the inn tells you is to the south. Head back south to a point just north of where your hovercraft is and search there to find a black pyramid. It's the plant that everyone kept talking about earlier. Scene: Alchemic Plant (Arukemiku Puranto) Items: Voice Recorder Monsters: Shanzen, Blackau When you enter, you'll see a cut scene of Antenora informing Vinsfeld that you have entered the plant. There goes your cover. Looks like he's also trying to put the moves on her, but she backs off and he leaves. When he's gone, she cries. You'll immediately get detected by a robot and get into a fight. Walk along the catwalk east and go through the door, then go around the corner and down the steps. Skip the first doorway on your right and enter the second one. Go up the short ramp, then jump off to the north and keep walking along the path until you get to another ramp. This time jump off to the east and you'll reach the door. Go through to a room with a lot of water in it. Head up the steps and through the door to another walkway. Head east along this one and out another door, then continue on to a door with a red outline. This leads to a metal catwalk. On the other side, you'll get to a room with a big computer. Brad stays behind to deal with things from there, so the rest of you can leave through the north door. Walk to the end of the catwalk and jump off the north side. The robot guarding the door will blast you with a laser if you get near, but you can blow it up with the Fire Rod. Go through the door and down the hall to a locked door with a guy behind it. Go up to the door and use your phone to listen in on the guy's conversation [B]. Then keep walking east. There's a gray door here that asks you for a password. Go through the door opposite it on the south wall. Search the lockers in here to find a memo. It's completely in katakana, so I had no chance of understanding it. Go back to the password door and up the stairs that circle around it. Go down the hall to another locked door and listen to this guy's conversation [C]. This conversation should give you a hint about the password, which is "toromu" in katakana, so go open it and go through. (NOTE: In the English version, the password should be "ISK".) Save your game and head east. Head up some steps and listen in on another conversation [F]. Go out the south door, then up more steps and listen in here [another F]. Backtrack to the last guy and listen in again. His conversation will have changed. Now come back to the second F room and the door will be open. Search one of the middle lockers to find the Voice Recorder. Now go through the west door. The next room winds up, down, and around, but you'll end up going out the west door. Listen in on the next conversation to hear Antenora talking to Soldier E. Ashley comments on how he can use Antenora's voice, so use the Voice Recorder to record her conversation. Head down some stairs and out the east door. The next room has a lot of robots in it and a door in the southeast you need to go through. But first listen in to the last conversation [D to G]. You'll wind up back at the Save Point. Use the Voice Recorder while standing in front of the giant metal door to get it to open. You've reached the main computer room, and Antenora comes out to greet you. Boss: Antenora ~ 6500 HP She has a 1000+ damage attack that can put you to sleep and poison you, and one that does 500+ to everybody. Combining with the Life Rune does well as far as healing goes. Just have Ashley smack her around with ARMs. When she's had enough, Brad will come in the room and the guards will turn into clones of Brad... Antenora says that they're Dopplegangers. But the real Brad shows up and literally kicks some ass. Ashley throws him a grenade and he blows a hole in the floor, taking out the Dopplegangers, but Antenora teleports away. More guards show up and Brad stays behind to finish things there. The rest of you escape, but the base explodes. You return to the Chateau without him. Chapter 15) Gildograd and the Open Sea Scene: Valeria Chateau The three of you talk to Irving about what happened. Ashley blames himself for not saving Brad. Irving now wants you to go north of Quartly to Uraltu Station. Go to the bridge and talk to Elvin to take off, then park the ship somewhere and use the Teleport Orb to warp to Quartly. Head as far northwest as you can and search the suspicious looking area next to the mountains to find the station. Scene: Uraltu Station Head downstairs and you'll meet up with Gildograd's son (Noel Anaheim Gildograd) and his troops. After a long discussion, you'll all board the train. After going for a ways, there's a problem and the train stops. The conductor will save your game if you talk to him. Head out the north door. Scene: Emulator Zone Monsters: Odessa 2nd Rank You somehow end up in a bizarre floating crystal world... Go up to the dark blue block and pull it back, then push it onto the pink square and walk through the pink door that opens up. You're now in a maze... From the first room after the gate, go: East, South, East, South You'll be in a room with a pink stone that talk to you. Now go North twice to get in a room with an inactive gate. Go back South through the door you just came in. There will be a chest on a floating platform to the west. Use Pooka to open the chest, and Tim will get his second Tool, the Aerial Bullet. You can now shoot gusts of wind that will move blocks. Shoot the blue block south once, then east onto the pink square. Go through the north door. A voice will talk to you, and Caina, master of the Giant Key(tm), will come out to fight you. He says something that REALLY pisses of Ashley, and the fight starts. Boss: Caina ~ 5000-7000 HP His main attack shoots white orbs at you and does between 700-800 HP. His physical attacks do around 450, but miss a lot. I Force Shifted Ashley until he could Access, then beat the hell out of him with a Banishing Buster attack which did 3700. After the fight, he teleports away. Walk through the pink gate. There are two staircases in the next room. Go down the left one and stand on the purple diamond. Then walk down and around to the diamond on the other side, but don't step on it. Instead, fall of the north edge onto the platform below and stand on that diamond. Go through the door right next to you, and you'll be in a room with a bunch of pink and white octagons. Keep walking onto diamonds until you're teleported next to a door that's NOT on the west side and go through it. The next room has a large pink crystal in it, the Emulator's generator. Walk up to the edge of the platform you're on and use the Aerial Bullet to push on of the blocks in the wall inward, then go back through the door you came in. Keep teleporting around until you get to another door, either on the north, east, or south side. Go in the door and knock another block out of the wall. Once you get the third block knocked out, the crystal will fall through and Kanon will show up and attack you again. Boss: Kanon ~ 7500 HP "This body flows with the Hero's blood..." she says. She's obsessed with the Holy Sword. She has the same nasty attacks as before, so follow the same pattern. One called "Meteo Drop" did 2000 to Tim... So once again, I spent every round casting Revive on Tim while Ashley used Night Fencer. After you win, Kanon gives you some encouraging words and leaves. You have 5:00 to get out, and once again, fights don't affect the timer. You want to go through the door to the west, so use some of the diamonds on the west side until it shows up. After you go through the first pink doorway, go north, then back through the same door again to get back to the beginning. It shouldn't take you more than a minute to get back to the train. When you get on, the train speeds off, but not fast enough for Ashley's tastes. You wind up dropping a car to go faster. After you get off, Noel says to head northeast. Head up the stairs and outside. Scene: Gildograd Country Monsters: Despai, Uraenus, Tsabat Items: Bullet Charge, Lucky Card Search the circle of stones to the west to find a Bullet Charge, then follow the road to Gildograd Castle. It's in the obvious place. If you imagine that the land mass is shaped like a dragon, there's a Lucky Card in the middle of its right wing. Scene: Gildograd Items: Crest Capsule, Crest Graph x4 After a quick tour of the place, you and Noel meet up with Master Gildograd, who's steaming mad at you. He argues with his son for awhile. Then the scene switches to Vinsfeld and his crew in their base. More talk of the Lost Technologies. Back to Gildograd, who wants to "Version Up" your hovercraft. You now have free range of the place, which is pretty big and confusing, but it has all the regular shops in it. Head straight south from the throne room all the way to the wall and search there for a hidden switch. This will open a locked door on the second floor with a yellow outline. Open the chest in there to get a Crest Capsule. You can also use a Duplicator to open the door to the treasure room on the north side of the castle. Inside are 4 Crest Graphs. When you leave the castle, you'll find your hovercraft is parked on the beach to the west. You can now sail in the Outer Sea. Scene: Outer Sea Monsters: Olveda Amy gives you a hint about your next destination being somewhere around Horust and Damzen. Head to Horust and ask around, and someone will tell you about a mine shaft to the northeast. Other areas you can visit: Scene: Island NE of the Agency Monsters: Graboid, Sazan Needle Nothing here yet. Scene: Large Island to the NE Monsters: Fafuneel, Shambling Mound Items: Duplicator, Goat Doll Scene: Small Island with Circular Forest Monsters: Round Anemone Scene: Island NE of Meria Town Ilzubale Island Prison is located here. If you missed going in the library before the final fight, you can do it now. Only two bookcases in there though. Scene: Beach southwest of Halmetts Monsters: Shapeshifter, Humpty, Dumpty Items: Gamaguchi This is an area only reachable by hovercraft. There's a sign here that mentions Toka twice. You'll also find the Gamaguchi here, which will double the amount of gella you find 1/3 of the time. Scene: Island in North Sea Monsters: Gargoyle, Gila Monster There's an island with a landing pad and a cave on it. The Wind something Cave. Pyramid here too. After you cross a bridge, you'll come to a windy room. Light the two torches with the fire rod before they can blow out and the door will open. In the second room, try lighting the torch closest to the door first, then the next closest, then the one on the east side. In room three, go from east to west. Try to light the last two with the same shot. When you cross the next bridge, you'll find a floating yellow crystal. Examine it to get the power of Fengalon, the Wind Rune. Scene: Horust Island Monsters: Basilisk, Rikkugob Items: Duplicator Get on your hovercraft and sail around to the north side of the island, then park and search for the mine. It's north of the sign that says "North -> Closed mine shaft". There's a duplicator in the middle of the field on the west side. Scene: Closed Mine Shaft Monsters: Basilisk, Cobalt King (Secret Boss) Items: Crest Graph, Shock Slader ARM, Blue Ribbon, Omega Crusher (SB) Another pyramid. There's a door to the north, though it's hard to see. Throughout this hallway, bats will swoop down and attack you, doing damage to your party if you're hit. Just wait for them to fly by and walk past. Activate the stick in the next room to blow up the north wall, then go through. A lot of crates, but I'm not finding any Heal Berries... Blow up another wall, cross a straight bridge, then a winding one. A regular hall, then one with more bats. The next room has a bunch of leaking pipes that will put out the fuse before it can get to the dynamite. You need to twist the valves to shut of the water to each pipe, but it's only temporary as the water will come back on in five seconds. Luckily the spark moves slowly, so it's only a matter of timing it right. The next room has a lot of holes in the floor and only one path to the exit, but you have to dodge bats on the way. There's a Save Point ahead. You'll next come to a room with three chests in it. The two side ones are trapped, so get Pooka to open them. They contain a Crest Graph and a Blue Ribbon. The middle one has the Shock Slader ARM for Ashley. There's a small passage on the left side of the room you can slip through to exit out a door to the north. You'll wind up in a throne room with Kanon waiting for you. Tim and Riruka try to prevent a fight this time though. Doesn't work. Boss: Kanon ~ 9500 HP "Holy woman's blood and devil's flesh..." She still has the same attacks and the same strategy of killing Tim... Though she did actually attack Riruka a few times. Quick seems to really help you dodge her attacks. Seems like Kanon might finally give up. Ashley offers her a hand. She refuses, but he knows how she feels and asks her to join you. Before she can answer, Judecca comes in and sets off some explosives. You get out, but Kanon is still hurt, so you rush her to Horust where Mariabel greets you. Scene: Horust All of you go to the inn to talk, but an explosion interrupts you. Mariabel stays with Kanon while the rest of you go to investigate. One of the buildings is on fire, and you rush to help while Judecca watches from above. Suddenly, Kanon appears next to him and attacks. Boss: Judecca ~ 6000 HP Before you start attacking, you can equip her with a Rune if you want. Gatling Level 1 does a good amount of damage, no matter which technique you use. I also learned the Drill Pressure technique in the middle of the fight. Use Potion Berries when you get low on HPs. After the fight, Judecca teleports away. You all head off to Valeria Chateau for a meeting with Irving. Chapter 16) Revenge Scene: Valeria Chateau Irving says that your next hit is an energy pipeline near the Alchemic Plant, south of Quartly. Irving confronts Kanon after you leave, calling her "Aisha Burnadette". You'll get instruction for using Kanon's Silhouette ARM. You also get instructions on your new radar system that locates hidden objects for you. Yellow dots are items and green dots are buildings or caves. You can easily go search out more powerful Runes now, which is what I'll go through next. I didn't do this until much later, but at some point talking to Mariabel in Irving's bedroom will allow her to upgrade your map scope. At this point I went back to Horust Island and into the temple in the forest there, but first you should go to a Personal Skills shop for Kanon. Scene: Dark Logic This is a strange crystal temple with drop away floors and little light. Every time you step on a red square, your circle of light gets smaller. In the first room you'll find three doors. Run across the walkways so that they don't fall and head through the rightmost door. Run straight forward and through another door. Next, take the fourth door from the right. Run across the bridge, but avoid the hole in the middle at the end. When you go in the next room, you'll see a floating yellow crystal. Examine it to get the power of Reidea Sooku, the Gloom Rune. Scene: Abandoned Refrigerator (Kiterareta Rifurijiretaa) Monsters: Mysterious Pot, Kelberos Items: Sorcery Apple, Power Apple, Lucky Card x2 To get to this cave, you need to teleport to Halmetts and cross the small lake in your hovercraft. The main room contains an obelisk with writing on it, and the first room has a plaque on the left wall with more writing, along with two chests on a ledge above you. Keep going north, then up the ramps to your left and through the doorway. Now use Pooka to open the two chests and get a Sorcery Apple and a Power Apple. Head back down the ramps and go through the east doorway. You'll find another plaque, and a door at the north end of the hall. The next room has a third chest and two more chests on a ledge. Get them the exact same way as before (Lucky Card x2) and head back to where you'll find 6 different colored crystals. You need to step on them in a certain order to open the door. If you read the story that was told on the three plaques, you'd know that the order is blue, green, yellow, red, black, and white. Go through the door to receive the power of Aru Sulato, the Snow Rune. Scene: Thunderclap's (I can't find this character) Monsters: Thunder Drake, Lycanthrope Items: Album Converter This temple is located on the west side of the Inner Sea, northwest of Baskar Village. When you enter, you'll immediately see a chest to your left. Stand on the stairs and use Pooka to open it to get an Album Converter. The small room to the right of the main stairs has a lot of health crystals in it. Head down the left steps and through the door, then up a lot of stairs to a ledge with a lever on it. When you pull the lever, the blue pillar down below raises up a bit. Head back down to the first room and do the same thing on the right side. Now go back to the main room and up the center steps. You'll wind up on a ledge with two chests, one of which needs a Duplicator to open. They contain a Crest Graph and a Crest Capsule. Drop down and hit the blue pillar with a knife to open the southern door. Inside you'll receive the power of Nua Shakks, the Thunder Rune. Back to the real game. Search in the desert southeast of Quartly to find another temple. Scene: Tomb? of 100 Eyes Monsters: Mashu Fushu, Gray Marine Items: Wire Hook Tool, D. Bison, Shield Jacket, Duplicator, Diari Umbrella, Potion Berry x2, Small Flower x2, Bullet Charge x2 After some discussion, you're ready to head in. Go down the ramp and ride down the elevator, then go through the door. Ignore the chest for now and go through the north door. Go around the right corner and through another door to reach the chest, which contains Kanon's first Tool, the Wire Hook. Use the hook to grab onto the gray post and swing over, then go through the right door. Go up the steps, then jump down until you're on the same level as the chest. Swing over and open it to get a Shield Jacket. Fall off the right ledge, then go through the door you came in. If you try to continue north, you'll just end up back where you started. Go back to the room where you first got the Wire Hook and go through the left door. Swing across a few gaps, then over to the chest, but don't try to grab the post straight on or you'll fall. Open the chest to get a D. Bison gun. Keep going through the west door. Use the blue computer here to open the door. In the northwest corner of the next room you'll find a blue pillar surrounded by posts. Just throw a knife at it to open the next door. Go through swing across the gap and use Pooka to open the chest to get a Duplicator. Do not go through the east door, or you'll end up back where you started. Swing back across the gap and go through the north door to find a Save Point. Head east and swing across three gaps to reach another door. Activate the blue pillar to start the gears moving, then move north some more and hit a second blue pillar to open the way to the door. Keep heading north through another door, then go back through the south door to your left. Swing across the gap and open the chest to get a Diari Umbrella. Go back through the door and west a bit, then use Pooka to open two more chests to get two Potion Berries. Keep heading west and go through the door. Go down the ramp and head south through another door, then cross one gap, go through the door and open a chest for a Crest Wand. Then come back the way you came and go through the north door to reach another blue computer. Go through the door and hit the blue pillar to move the block, then swing across two gaps and hit another pillar. The last post will be off the screen, but you'll still connect with it and swing across. Go through the door and you'll hear singing. It's Toka and Ge again, and they'll attack you. Boss: Toka ~ 4000 HP Ge ~ 5000 HP Use Quick on Riruka in the first round so that she can react before Ge does. Ge can smack you for 2000+ HP, and Toka can hit everybody for 1000+ HP each. Keep yourself alive by using Mystic on a Potion Berry whenever you need healing, or use High Heal if only one person needs it. When you win, you'll get two Small Flowers. They'll send the real boss after you next. Boss: ARMS Killer ~ 7500 HP Right Hand ~ 3000 HP Left Hand ~ 3000 HP He can hit one guy for 1500+. His left hand is weak against Break, but use ARMs and Kanon's techniques on his main body. As long as you keep yourself at top, you have nothing to worry about. Use a Lucky Card since you'll get a ton of experience for this guy. You'll get two Bullet Charges for winning. Toka and Ge will run off after the fight. Go up to the computer and use it. You'll learn more about the four Magic World Pillars and then you'll decide to call the Valeria Chateau. Use your phone to talk to Kate and Amy, who don't have good news. You all leave the temple to find Odessa's ship flying overhead. The Odessa members have a discussion about their power levels, but then the camera zooms in on Brad below with a very large gun. There's a flashback of what happened to Brad after you left. Scene: Brad's Flashback As you watch Brad, you'll have to control him as he fights off his clones. He can do just as much damage as you, so watch out. If you use your new Double ARM ability, you can take him out quickly. After the fight, he'll throw one of the clones into the generator to blow it up. Scene: Desert After the flashback, Brad will fire his over the shoulder beam cannon at Odessa's ship, which takes a nasty hit. Vinsfeld doesn't seem too worried though. The rest of you go to reunite with Brad. You'll all meet up with Irving in the Chateau. (You now have the Linear Rail Cannon ARM) Chapter 17) Pillars of the World Scene: Valeria Chateau, Conference Room Everyone discusses what to do next. Irving says that your next mission is to find the Magic World Pillars and destroy their generators. I believe that only three of these towers are mandatory and one is optional, and they can be done in any order. Scene: Meria Town Ashley wakes up in his bed and goes out to find Marina. They talk in the hallway. Marina still wishes he could stay there, and they hug. Ashley once again promises that he'll come back. Everyone walks out of the castle and meets up with Irving's crew. You'll now be in control of the Chateau. Scene: Magical World Pillar: Caina Sect Monsters: Tiny Gem, Fyulfyuul, Shibyura, Okyupet, Rockbaster (outside) Items: Blue Wind The first pillar I found was Caina's, located just southwest of Gildograd. Land the Chateau on the landing pad there. Head inside and up the steps to the area above the entrance where you'll find a blue crystal. Examine it and you'll be teleported. Make your way up to another crystal and you'll be teleported again. The next room is like an arcade game. Use the Wire Hook or Throw Knife to hit the blue cube, but the three blue shields will try to block you. Hit it three times to form a bridge. Cross the bridge to teleport again, then make your way up to another crystal. As you walk up the psychedelic staircase, you'll be surrounded by a ring of shields and cubes. Hit any of the cubes three times to destroy the ring. Keep heading west and go through the teleporter, up the tower again and through another teleporter. More psychedelic stairs, where you'll find a pink gas cloud. Pooka warns Tim to be careful, but Tim is convinced that he's strong enough. Boss: Droadu (Doroodu) ~ 9500 HP Right Head ~ 5500 HP Left Head ~ 4500 HP Basically all he can do is hit everyone for 500+. Just Mystic some berries and you'll be fine. You'll get a Blue Wind coat for winning. Keep heading west to another teleporter and up the tower some more and through another teleporter. You'll find a Save Point here. Move on through the next teleporter and up the tower again. The next room you come to has a glowing floor and blue squares with green diamond in them. When you step forward, all the lights turn off. While you're standing on a blue square, the lights turn on. It's basically a giant maze where you can't see the walls. It's really not too difficult though... From the start, take the right path all the way to the wall, then all the way up to another blue square. From here, there is one other blue square on the screen to your upper left. Walk down, left, left, down, left, left, then up to that square. From here go north one square, west to a wall, south to a wall, east one, south to a wall, then west to the teleporter. Up the tower some more... and you're finally at the top. Head up the spiraling staircase to face Caina at the top. Boss: Caina ~ 20000 HP Caina can do 1700+ to a single person, or 1000+ to everyone with random status effects. This fight will take a long time, so keep your hit points up. Get your Force Points up in the first few rounds, then hit him with strong techniques and good ARMs like the Linear Rail Cannon. Riruka is absolutely necessary. After the fight, the generator is destroyed. "Randolph" seems to be some powerful being superior to the Odessa flunkies, and "he" punishes Caina by pulling him into a black hole. Caina is not happy. Step into the teleporter that appears to leave the tower. Head to a town to refill your ARMs before moving on. Scene: Magical World Pillar: Antenora Sect Monsters: Necromancer, Harvestman, Balfon, Mimic Items: Vitality Apple, Sapphire Bische To get to this pillar, warp to Silverant Castle and take your hovercraft north to the first beach you come to. The tower is in the wooded area below Baskar village. Search north of the tower to find a Vitality Apple. The setup is the same as Caina's tower. The first puzzle room is a set of crisscrossing lines with blocks at the intersections that rise up when you step on them, preventing you from backtracking. The idea is to get all of the blocks raised without falling off. To do this, go right (north) for two blocks, up one, left two, down one, left one, up four, right one, down one, right two, up one, and left one. In the second puzzle room, there are 9 blue squares and Antenora will show you a sequence of lighting the squares that you need to follow. If you get it wrong, it'll just make you try again. The sequences she shows you should go in this order: 9,5,1,2,7,3,6,4,8 2,7,4,3,5,9,8,1,6 5,2,4,6,7,9,1,8,3 4,7,9,1,2,5,3,8,6 3,8,1,4,9,6,5,7,2 Where the squares are set up like the Number Pad on your computer: 7 8 9 4 5 6 -> North 1 2 3 You only have to get one sequence right to move on. Room three is the mini-boss, just like in the first tower. This time, Riruka is in charge. Boss: Prisonas ~ 8500 HP Chest ~ 10000 HP He can do 600+ or 1300+ to everyone, so keep your hit points high. If you upgraded the Linear Rail Cannon to max, it'll do 3000+ to him. When you win, you'll get a Sapphire Bische for Riruka. Head up to the fourth room, which has a Save Point in it. The fifth room has a pillar in the center with 8 blue squares on it. Hit all of the squares with your Throw Knives except for the bottom one closest to the teleporter. Then jump off the staircase and go in the teleporter. You'll be at the top of the tower now where you'll face Antenora. Boss: Antenora ~ 15000 HP She can do 900+ to everyone, or hit one person for 1500+. Not too difficult. She's really slow too. Once again, the generator will be destroyed after the fight. Antenora will talk about her relationship with Vinsfeld and disappear into a blue light. Jump into the teleporter to exit. Scene: Magic Capital Archeim Monsters: Reanimator, Evil Dead Items: Potion Berry x3, Lute Conductor, Mini Carrot, Sorcery Apple x2 At this point I went back to the white field north of Quartly and searched the spot in the center of the pillars to find this deserted city. The building on the west side of town has some boxes which contain a Potion Berry and the Lute Conductor, a purple crystal. The building in the southwest corner has the doorway blocked. Go to the west side and bomb away the discolored wall to get inside. Examine the yellow Rune crystal to gain the power of Ge Ramtos, the Death Rune. The building on the east side has a Mini Carrot in one of the crates. The large building in the back has a Save Point in the right room, and a chest in the left one. Use Pooka to reach the chest, which contains another Lute Conductor. I didn't figure out how to open the crates though. Head back into the center room and use one of the Lute Conductors on the gray slab to activate an elevator. In the next room, flip the two switches to open the large gate. Now head into the other door on the east side of town. You can use a Duplicator here to get into a room with two chests behind a fence and a few crates. Inside the crates you'll find two Potion Berries and a Silver Circlet. Upstairs you'll notice that the back wall has a weak point in it. Bomb the wall to break through and get to the roof. Use the Wire Hook to get to the roof of the center building and fall through the hole in the roof. Flipping the switch will open the door that was sealed before, then put your other Conductor in the slab to activate the elevator. When you get to the bottom, a monster appears. Boss: Jasoul ~ 9000 HP Right Hand ~ 5500 HP Left Hand ~ 5500 HP He doesn't do much damage, but he can drain one person for 500+. He's very easy to beat, and you'll get two Sorcery Apples for winning. Go through the gate. Scene: Slayheim Live Reflector Items: Missanga, Holy Grail You'll end up in a Live Reflector temple. There's a side door on the right where you can use a Duplicator to get a Missanga. You'll be able to activate one transporter here, Serpent Road. Use the plaque on the wall and step into the transporter. When you get to the other side, you can go into another side room and use another Duplicator to get the Holy Grail. When you leave, you'll find yourself on the large island in the northwest corner of the map. Follow the path to the southeast and search at the end to find the optional Magic Pillar. Scene: Magical World Pillar: Judecca Sect Monsters: Catoblepas, Gargoyle, Gildaburil, Gleamrock Items: Ramera, War Alnim The first puzzle room that you come to has a platform that will move along a track. You have to avoid spiked balls as the platform moves or you'll be knocked of. The second floor has the mini-boss this time, and Kanon will lead the way. Boss: Magmarizer ~ 9000 HP Head ~ 10000 HP This guy looks mean, but he's really easy. He has one attack that hits everyone for 500+, but he doesn't use it often. He seemed to prefer physical attacks, which my guys dodged. You'll get the Ramera glove for Kanon. The next floor has a Save Point. Room four is like the first, avoid the spikes. Room five has a walkway with spikes rotating around it. Just wait for each spike to pass and walk by it. Don't try to run or you might throw off your timing. You'll next come to the top of the tower, where you'll face Judecca. Boss: Judecca ~ 17000 HP He can hit one person for 2000+ or everyone for 600+. Just be ready to use High Heal and hit him with strong attacks. When you win you'll get a War Alnim. After the fight, there's a red flash and Judecca falls backward off the tower? Did he kill himself? Enter the teleporter to leave. Scene: Magical World Pillar: Ptolomaea Sect Monsters: Decarabia, Land Lamprey Items: Best Obu Vest, War Alnim This pillar can be found in the middle of the dark waters northeast of Sielje. In the first puzzle room, Giant blocks will roll their way towards you. If you hit them enough with bombs, they'll blow up, but it a lot easier to just let them hit you and walk through. The second puzzle room has a walkway that goes around in a circle. There will be one giant block trying to run you down, and you need to bomb it until it blows up. Once it's destroyed, another faster block will take its place. After four or five blocks, a bridge will form to the teleporter in the center. The third floor is the mini-boss, and it's Brad's turn to take charge. Boss: Belkreil ~ 9500 HP Drill ~ 6000 HP Chest ~ 5000 HP He can swipe at everybody for 1000+ or hit one person for 600+. Heal Berries were enough to keep me going for the entire fight... barely. For winning you'll get the Best Obu Vest. (I don't know what they were trying to call this, but it almost looks like a play on Best Of The Best) As you might have guessed, next is the Save Point. In the next room, there are three lines of blocks that roll at you. You have to figure out which block in the line is able to be blown up and take it out before the line reaches the end. Once again, it's much, much easier to just let the blocks hit you and walk through them, as the hit detection for the bombs is awful. Once past there, you're on your way to the top to face Ptolomaea. Boss: Ptolomaea ~ 20000 HP His main attack hits everyone for 1000+, but he also can use physical attacks (which should be useless to your guys at this point) You'll get another War Alnim for winning. After the fight, Ptolomaea falls to the ground and disappears in a purple flash of light. Leave through the transporter. Once outside, you'll get a phone call from Irving. He congratulates you and tells you the location of Heimdall Gasso, south of Sielje. Fly the Chateau over the sea to the south-southeast of Sielje and you should see a yellow object floating in the sky, casting a shadow on the water that looks like an Egyptian symbol. Fly up to the ship and board it. Scene: Heimdall Gasso Monsters: Doppleganger, Odessa 3rd Rank As soon as you enter, Ashley gives your group an inspirational pep talk. "It's not impossible! Let's go! Everyone!" Go up to the north wall and open the blue door, then go through. After the second blue door, you'll be in a room with two red doors and a blue one. Go through the blue one and use the panel. It will say that Green doors are now locked, and Red and Blue doors are open. Go back out and through the left red door, then through another red door to the west. You'll be in a dark maze. Make your way to the southwest corner where you'll find a console for turning on the lights. Then head north and step on the green transporter and go through the red door. Use the panel in here to lock Blue doors and open Red and Green doors. Head back to the room with three doors and open the center door (Red), then go through the green door and another red door. Now you'll have to take teleporters to get to where you want to go. Go in the north teleporter, then the southeast one, then fall off the east edge twice and go in the north one. Go in the northwest one to get to a panel that will lock Green and unlock Red and Blue. Fall off the south ledge and go in the south teleporter to reach a room with large health crystals in it. Then go back through the teleporter and make your way up to the teleporter in the northwest corner of the room. Take the southwest one, then walk into the last one to end up at the blue door. There's a Save Point in here and a teleporter that will take you back to the entrance of the ship. Go through the red door, then use the panel to lock Red and unlock Blue and Green. Go through the last door and you'll be on the bridge with Vinsfeld. Boss: Vinsfeld ~ 24000 HP He counters a lot, so it might be a good idea to use Quick on your guys so that they'll be able to avoid him easily. He seems to prefer using Caina's main attack, which is relatively weak, but he can also hit all your guys for 1000+. He's nothing special. After the fight, Vinsfeld sets the ship to self-destruct, then teleports away. Head through the green door below. Everyone will get into a separate transporter while Ashley uses the control panel. First you'll control Brad, but he can't continue because the door is locked. Switch to Riruka and go through the blue door. Go down the steps and push the block onto the blue square, then go back up the steps and head south and east through the blue door. Ignore the blue door and use the control panel to lock Blue and unlock Red and Green. Switch to Tim and go through the red door. Step on the blue diamond and continue through the red door. Ignore the blocks and switches in this room and keep going through the green door. Turn to the right and go through the south green door. Step on the diamond and use your Arial Bullet to push the block twice onto the switch. Switch back to Riruka and move her onto the block you just lowered, then switch back to Tim and shoot the block once more to move it off the diamond. Switch back to Riruka again and jump off on the side with the diamond and go through the green door. Stand on the diamond and switch to Kanon. Go through the red door and stand on the diamond. Switch to Brad and have him stand on the next diamond to open the way for Kanon. Switch back to Kanon and go through the red door. Stand on the diamond until the wall lowers, then run over it. You should make it over the wall before it raises. Go through the green door, then through the red door. Stand on the diamond (Riruka should be on the other side) and the wall will lower. Switch to Tim and go through the green door, then head east and use Pooka to reach the control panel which will lock Green and unlock Red and Blue. Switch to Kanon and go through the red door, then through the blue door to the east. Pull the block northward off the diamond, then fall off the wall and walk around to the diamond. While standing on it, push the block north and into the gap to form a bridge. Stand on the diamond and switch to Brad and go through the blue door. Pull the block south one, then push it east once and north twice onto the diamond. Go through the east blue door, stand on the diamond and walk over to the other blue door. This room took me a good long while to figure out. Have Brad push the block across the bridge, then push it back onto the center of the bridge from the east side. Then stand on the diamond next to the wall to lower the block down. Now switch to Tim. Go through the blue door to the north, under the bridge and through another blue door. Use the Arial Bullet to knock the block you just lowered onto the diamond and switch back to Brad. Walk over to the other diamond and stand on it to let Tim past. Switch to Tim and go through the red door. You should be able to reach the control panel with Kanon on the diamond above. Use it to lock Red doors and unlock Blue and Green, then go through the green door. Ashley will activate the escape pod for him and the game switches to Brad. Go through the green door and he'll escape too. Do the same for Riruka and Kanon. As Ashley turns to leave, he's confronted by Vinsfeld. They fight. Boss: Vinsfeld ~ 13000 HP Hit points shouldn't be a problem if you have high enough regeneration. Use Access, then Night Fencer until you beat him. Vinsfeld is confident that he can destroy the world now. His ship builds up a beam of power which shoots into space and forms a hexagram in space bigger than the planet. Then he... melts. A blinding light surrounds Ashley. Scene: Meria Town Marina and Mariabel are watching the stars from the top of the bakery. They see a shooting star. Mariabel asks Marina what she wished for. She wants everybody to come back. Scene: Escape Pod Crash Site The four of you that escaped meet. Riruka starts crying. You see the planet from outer space as debris of Odessa's ship flies through orbit. Ashley's body is shown floating out in space. END OF DISC 1 (My time, 55 hours, but a lot of time was spent translating parts) Chapter 18) Life After Death Scene: Empty Field Marina is standing alone in a field. Altaecia walks up to her and asks why she's there again. Marina says that she's still waiting for Ashley to return. Scene: The Afterlife Ashley is standing in front of a temple with an extremely bright light in the background. "Where am I? I'm in pain... What is this place... This isn't Filgaia... This isn't possible, but I clearly remember this place... Where am I?" A woman walks up to him and tells him that this isn't his home. Ashley realizes that the Guardian Blade brought him there and the woman says that she's Anastasia. He asks her if she's the Sword of the Holy Woman and she laughs. They start walking, and Anastasia asks him embarrassing questions about his personal life. She seems really easy- going. She asks him if he wants to return to Filgaia... the world where Marina awaits him. Ashley says that he knew this place wasn't Filgaia. She says something about it being her world. Scene: Temple Monsters: Imp, Buel, Ettin As Ashley and Anastasia stand inside the entrance to the giant temple, Luceid appears next to her. She tells Ashley about Luceid, and they both join your party. Head north until you get to the blue pillar, and hit it with a knife. A girl in a cape will drop down. After talking to her, she leaves. Go through the north door. There are invisible walls in here, so just walk around them and go through the north door. You'll find a white crystal in here. When you examine it, you'll be shown a fiery scene with a large winged demon. I believe that Anastasia tells him that this is the demon inside of him and that it's called Lord Blazer... Head north again and shoot the blue pillar when it comes into sight, then go through the door. Go up the right steps and you'll find the cape-girl standing behind a pillar. Anastasia tells her that the demon got into Ashley. She walks off again. Throw a knife at the blue pillar to the west and then jump off and head north through the door. Shoot both pillars, then head up through the next door. Go up and examine the crystal here to see a scene of Anastasia and the Guardian Blade. She tells of how she took up the blade to save Filgaia. You then see Irving walk up to the Guardian Blade in the stone, as you did at the beginning of the game. He tries to pull it out twice, but fails. He then cuts his hands on the blade to put his blood on it and calls on the power of the sword. When he tries to pull it out again, it shocks him so bad he's thrown into the wall. He doesn't understand, since he has the blood of the Valeria family in him. He wakes up from the dream he was having. Head all the way up the left side and hit the pillar there, then go back across the bridge and up the right side to get to the door. Go up and hit the pillar in the next room to find cape-girl again. Ashley tells her that they should fight for Filgaia, and she leaves. Follow her through the door. Head up the center and shoot the pillar, then shoot the pillar that drops down. Go back and up and around the left side and through the door. There's another crystal here. This time you'll see Anastasia and Luceid in a dark temple. She tells you about her travels with Luceid. After that, she says that you should go back to Filgaia. Shoot the first blue pillar, then hit the second one diagonally. Go across the bridges and through the door. Shoot the pillars to form bridges, and talk to cape-girl again at the end. Ashley tells her that even though it's bad now, and it may be bad tomorrow, they should still fight. Follow her through the door. Shoot the pillar and continue on through another door to another crystal. You'll see the bridge of the Chateau, where Kate, Amy, and Irving are talking. Scene: Valeria Chateau The ship has detected that Ashley is still alive, I think. Irving meets with the others and tells them. The Millennium Puzzle has something to do with finding him, so although she doesn't want to, Riruka opens the gate. Scene: Millennium Puzzle Monsters: Talguem, Grabusk, Praimvalus This time there are five switch blocks for you to get to. There's a Save Point immediately through the south teleporter that you can go to at any time. East: Shoot your fire rod diagonally at the switch to lower the first wall, then shoot the second switch to lower the second wall. After walking over it, shoot the same switch again to lower the third wall and reach the teleporter at the top of the ramp. Stand on the block at the end of the path, then shoot the switch to the southeast. Move to the last block to the west and shoot the switch to the northeast. Walk south and stand on the second to last block, then shoot the switch to the south. Move to the last block and shoot the same switch to reach the teleporter. Walk down to the next teleporter, then shoot the first switch and stand on the corner block and shoot the switch to your south. You have to be in just the right place to hit the switch. From here, shoot the switch to the northeast to lower the walls. Move over to the next block and shoot the switch to the northwest, walk north and shoot the switch again. Move over to the final block and shoot the switch to the northeast to reach the teleporter. Go up the spiral to the teleporter. Don't move or you'll fall and have to start over. Shoot the switch block. (Yellow: 4) Southeast: Cross the two moving blocks when they line up with the path, then head up to the teleporter. Line yourself up and fall down until you get to the teleporter to the west. Fall down and stand on the northwest block and hit the switch to your right, then go through the transporter and onto the bridge. Fall off and go through the west teleporter. Go up the spiral, through the teleporter, and shoot the switch block. (Blue: 1) Southeast: Go back in the southeast, but this time in the second room, go down to the south teleporter. Do some more block riding to reach the next teleporter, then walk around a spiral and up a second to reach another switch block. (Green: 2) Southwest: It took a long, long time, but I figured out that you can use your Freeze Rod to freeze the moving blue blocks. Freeze the one that's moving North-South when it's lined up with the pathway, then use it to reach the second moving block and get to the teleporter. From here, just follow the path until you reach the switch block. (Red: 3) South: The first room you come to has a Save Point. Through the next teleporter you'll find the same sort of colored pillar puzzle you had to do the first time. The solution, if you've been paying attention, is Blue:1, Green:2, Red:3, Yellow:4. Go through the teleporter to reach the last switch block. A giant switch block will appear in the center. Walk up to the sealed door and Riruka will try to activate the switch, but will fail. The others support her, and you all teleport away. Chapter 19) The Return Scene: Dark Tunnel Anastasia and Luceid are walking down a path, leading Ashley back to Filgaia. They stop when they see the light at the end. Ashley wants her to come too, but she says that this is her world, although she loves so much of the other one. After Ashley walks off into the light, she sends Luceid through too. Scene: Marina's Room Marina is holding some sort of object that starts glowing as she thinks of Ashley. At the same moment, Ashley appears in the Hall of the Sword in front of the stained glass picture of Anastasia. Also at that moment, the Valeria Chateau detects the signal and calls for a staff meeting. You'll see each member of the team's reaction to hearing the news, and Ashley's first person perspective of returning to Meria Town where Marina is waiting. He walks into her room to find her crying. "I'm home." "Yes... Welcome back." Tim wants to go in and see him, but Riruka blocks the stairs. There's one last shot of Ashley and Marina embracing. Scene: Valeria Chateau, Conference Room The whole ARMs group is assembled for a meeting. Irving tells Ashley how the planet has gone to hell since he left. There's a shot of the outside, and the sky is swirling with dark blue mist. Tim suggests they consult the Baskar Elder on what to do, and Irving agrees. Ashley stays behind and talks to Irving about Anastasia. When you get control again, it's time to head to Baskar. The world map music has changed too. Scene: Baskar Village When you get to Baskar, you'll immediately meet with the elder in his house. You talk about the Guardians and Tim's power. I'm not sure what all they talked about, but Irving wants you to go to Sielje next. Scene: Sielje Go to the back of town and talk to MacGregor. He tells you to head southeast. Get in your hovercraft and head to the beach to the south. Walk across the red bridge and search to find a temple. Scene: Ruld's Spring (Grotto of Loudres) Monsters: Wiseman Items: Miracle Berry, Potion Berry x3, Crest Graph, Lucky Card, Mini Carrot, Main Gauche Walk up to the door and an optic scanner will check for admittance. Only Kanon will be accepted, so use her to open the door. Go down the hall and you'll come to a large room with a Save Point. There are six doors in this room. The one you came through, the one that you just saw open, and four more that are sealed. Head north through the one that just opened. You'll come to a room full of lava. Use the Wire Hook to reach the north side of the room, then fall off the ledge and open the chest. You'll get Kanon's second Tool, the Roller Dash. It's exactly like Rudy's Roller Skates in WA 1. Roll your way south (you'll probably go right out the door), then roll back north in the exact center so that you run into the lever. Pull it down to open the door, then roll back south and hook your way back to the north end so that you can go through the door. Stand on the platform in the next room to be transported into a misty place. A girl comes walking up, and Kanon asks her where they are. The girl talks about her mother, and when Kanon asks her who she is, she says "Aisha". Kanon finds herself back with the others. Head back to the main room and another door will open. Go through the newly opened door and roll over the lava in the first room, then hook your way through the second. You'll come to another platform. This time Kanon sees her mother. Her mother tells her that she is of the same bloodline as the Holy Woman, and that the Burnadette house is also a descendant, like the Valeria house. The vision fades. Head back to the main room and go in the south door. Stick to one of the sides so that you don't roll your way into the water. In the next room, hook your way across the water, and use Pooka at the end to open the chest and get a Miracle Berry. When you reach the lava, roll diagonally up through the opening, then up the ramp so that you hit the lever. Pull it down to open the door, then go through. (or you could always walk through the lava. It doesn't hurt that much) Walk up to another platform. This time you'll see Aisha as a child talking to herself. Kanon pulls out her knife and laughs like a crazy person, and you're told something about Kanon's link to Anastasia and the Guardian Blade... Head back to the main room and go through the east door. Hook your away across the water, then back to get the four chests. The first two have a Potion Berry and a Crest Graph in them, then use Pooka to open the others for another Potion Berry and a Lucky Card. Walk across the crate and pull the lever to open the door. This part also took me a few minutes to figure out, but you need to stand on the crate and kick the wall to move it. It'll float over and let you get to the door. Stand on the platform. There's no vision this time, just Kanon talking to herself about Lord Blazer. Head back to the main room and the last door will open to the southwest. Go down the hall and swing over the gap to reach two chests with a Potion Berry and a Mini Carrot. Swing over two more gaps to get to a third chest with a Main Gauche in it. Then head through the south door and stand on the final platform. The game will tell you more about Anastasia and Lord Blazer. After it's over, Kanon will learn Gatling Level 3. Scene: Gift of the Sky Monsters: Mold Gnome, Troll Items: Elemental Artifacts Since I really don't know where to go next, head down to the giant crater southwest of Sielje and search the center to find a cave. The doorway in this first room is very hard to see. Walk down the ramp into the water, then back up a ramp on the other side, where there's a doorway to the north. Go through and up a steep slope and fall into the hole at the top. You can use Pooka to open the chest that's on the screen after you fall. Inside is the Flame Hatred, which your item screen lists as a Fire Artifact... Jump down a few ledges until you're at the same level as the other chest, then use Pooka to open it. You'll get the Snow Crystal. Fall down once more and go through the west doorway. Walk up the ramp and while the chest is still on the screen, use Pooka to open it. Inside is the Thunder Fang. Go back down the ramp and through the bottom door on the south side. Open the chest to get the Dark Hitonade(?). Go back through the same door, then up to the top level. There's a bunch of holes in the floor here. There's a chest on the west side that has the Water Whisper in it. Go to the hole that's farthest south and fall through. You'll land on a ledge with a lever that you need to pull. Fall down to the south and open the chest to get the Earth Groan. Go up the ramps to the west and through the door. Fall through the easternmost hole this time and open the chest for the Flash Blow. Walk along the ledge to the north and go through the doorway you just opened up. Open the chest here for the Hurricane Claw. Go up the south ramp to find a yellow crystal rune. Examine it to get the power of Rigdobrite, the Star Rune. The special ability of this rune is to let you use any of the artifacts you just found in battle. Fall of the ledge to the south and leave. Scene: Separated Island Agency Monsters: Sarasenian Head back to the island where you learned High Magic. Switch to Riruka and talk to Dee, and you'll receive her third Force, Extension. This will let you cast spells on groups. You'll notice that there's a green dot on your radar to the south, which is where you should go next. Teleport to Gildograd, then sail around to the beach south of where you just were. This place won't show up unless you've talked to the chief in Baskar Village. Scene: Dais of Life Monsters: Geshupenst, Roper, Hydra Items: Sunbird Hat, Hyper Gia, Miracle Feather, Dragon God Statue, Lion King Statue, Goddess Statue Keep going north until you get to a gap in the floor. There's a button on the left side that you can hit with a Throw Knife. When you get to the next gap, you'll see that the plaque on the right side is hanging close to the ground. Stand beside it and kick it to reveal a button underneath. Hit that with a Throw Knife and go through the door. This hallway has a statue of a dragon in it, and if you look very closely, you can find a hidden door right next to the door you just came through. Fall off the side right in front of the first pillar on the left side. You'll land on a small ledge right in front of a door. (if you rotate your view, you can see this door below) Go through the door and up the stairs. You'll come to a large room with the signs of the Zodiac on the floor in a circle. Stand on the picture of the bow and arrow (Sagittarius) for about 5 seconds and it will flash and the door will open. Go through the door and open the chest to get the Dragon God Statue. Step into the circle of light to be transported back to the dragon statue. Go down the hall and into a room with a chest and a lever. Open the chest to get a Sunbird Hat, then pull the lever. There are two blocks on either side of the pit that you call pull out and use to form a bridge. Push one of them into the gap, then push the other block over the first one and into the gap in the stairway. Go up the stairs and pull the lever, then go through the door. You'll see that the platform on the north side is too high for you to walk across, so go down below it and kick the pillar that's supporting it. The platform will fall down to a reasonable height. Walk across and open the chest to get a Hyper Gia, then go down under the platform on the south side of the room. You'll find a hidden doorway underneath it. Go in and up the steps. You'll come to a room with a large clock on the floor. Go up one of the side stairways and jump off the ledge onto either of the two faces sticking out of the wall. Then jump off onto the gray statue below. While standing on the statue, shoot the Fire Rod at the gray statue to the south that's higher up than the other three. If you hit it, the door will open. Go through and open the chest to get the Lion King Statue. Step into the circle of light to be transported back to the lion statue. Go through the east door. There's a Save Point in this room. Go north again and you'll find a red diamond on the floor. Step on it to move the two large blocks towards the center, then walk along one of the walls past the gap in the floor. Step on the other red diamond in the corner to move the block that lets you use the stairs. Go up the stairs and around the walkway until you get to the chest, then jump off and open it to get the Miracle Feather (a hat). Jump off and step on the diamond right next to the chest, then walk around and step on the second diamond again. Go up the stairs and take the walkway all the way up until you're standing directly above the last button. Jump off the ledge to the south and you'll land on the button and activate it. Head out the north door. In the next room you'll find four pillars with stars on the top. Have Brad kick the blocks in between the two eastern pillars to open a doorway. Go through, up some stairs, and through another door. You'll come to a large room with a lot of colored symbols on the floor. There are also pits of water in each corner, and red, yellow, and blue stones. Push the red block into the northwest pit, the yellow block into the southeast pit, and the blue block into the southwest pit. The pits will flash, and the door will open. Go through the north door and open the chest to get the Stone Goddess. Step in the circle of light and you'll be transported back to the room with the four pillars. (See "Reviving the Stone Gods" at the bottom of this FAQ for info on what to do with them) Head out to the east and go up the steps. Tim will start glowing. The glowing ball will float over to the platform and speak to you, calling itself "Gaia". Pooka goes over and talks to it. Gaia tells you about what's happening to the planet (which I didn't understand) and asks Tim to do something, but Tim says no. Tim says he will protect the planet. Gaia returns to Tim, and he receives his third Force, Power Divide. As you head out the door, you get a phone call. Irving tells Ashley that something happened to Marina (kidnapped?). You immediately head back to the Chateau. Scene: Valeria Chateau, Conference Room There's a ransom note telling you to come to an island in the Inner Sea, the Lost Garden. Irving lets you go take care of business. Exit the Chateau, then teleport back to the Chateau to move your hovercraft into position. Then teleport to the hovercraft and sail to the small island northeast of the main peninsula. Search to find the Lost Garden. Scene: Lost Garden Monsters: Chimera, Gizmo, Avery Gnome Items: Phantom Fang ARM, Miracle Berry Ashley is pretty pissed off, but the others calm him down. Head up the stairs and down the hall, then go through the doorway at the end. There's a red and blue block in here. First stand on the blue block to make the red one go down, then stand on the red block to raise it back up and allow you to reach the door. In the next room you'll find a block with a happy face on it. Ignore it for now (you'll come back much later) and go over to the two hallways. The right one leads to a magically locked chest (I'm out of Duplicators). Go up the left hallway and through the door. This room has a green hexagram on the floor. One of your party members has to stay behind to keep the circle active. Choose whoever you don't use much (but not Ashley). This will open the west door, so go through and all the way up the stairs. Head down the hall and through the door. Go up the ramp in the next room and jump down onto the lower of the two red blocks. It'll raise up and you can continue on to the blue blocks. When you fall down onto the first, you'll be trapped. But if you run into the other blue block, it will lower and you can jump down onto it. After it raises, you can continue out the doorway. (You're supposed to jump off onto the blue block on the east side of the room before you reach the other two) The next room has another green hexagram and a hole in the floor. If you fall in the hole, you'll end up back in the first hexagram room. This isn't recommended. Instead, drop somebody off on the hexagram and continue through the door. The next room has a lot of red and blue blocks in it. First step on the northeast red block, then take the west side with the three red blocks and one blue. When you get to the third red block, take the side bridge over to the red block on the other side. This one will raise you up to the platform with the door. Go through, up the steps, and down another hall. In the next room, fall in the little pit at the entrance to land on a red block. Then go up the ramp and across two more red blocks. Go up the side ramp and the blue block will carry you up to the chest. Open it to get Phantom Fang, an ARM for Ashley. (which is strange, because I thought I left him on the first floor...) Head up and out the east door. Leave your third person behind here and continue through the door. There's a Save Point on your way up the stairs. Keep going up and down the hall to the next room. There's a large pit and a moving platform. Get on it when it comes by, and step on the blue block. When it passes the west side of the room, step off onto one of the blue blocks there, then move onto the other one to lower the set. Step on the red block here, then go back to the same blue blocks and wait for the platform to return. Jump on and ride around to the row of red blocks. Jump off onto one and wait for the second platform to come around. Jump onto it and ride it around until you get to the west side of the room. Get off and go through the door. Open the chest here to get a Miracle Berry. Go back and get on the platform, then get off on the south side and go through that door. Drop off one more person and go through the door. Guess what? You need Ashley here. And I left the son of a bitch on the first floor. When you do finally get here with just Ashley, first fall off onto the red block to the left. Then walk down the east row of blocks and activate the green one at the end. Now when you go to the south green block, it will raise you up. Throw a knife south and it will bounce off the wall and hit the blue pillar, which will bring a set of stairs over. Go up the stairs and into the red mouth and Ashley will try to confront Caina. He teleports in with Marina. After pushing her to the ground, he starts glowing brightly. Ashley jumps on him to protect Marina. The scene switches to Irving in his study, apparently researching. He discovers that Ashley can access a new form, Overheat Blazer. Boss: Caina ~ 20000 Ashley has now transformed into a golden version of the Black Horseman. Caina is stunned, but fights anyway. You should have no trouble at all winning. I saved up my power and used Final Bust to kill him, which I think is supposed to kill me too... But it didn't this time. Caina dies, and Ashley transforms back. Marina is very upset because she doesn't know who Ashley really is. She breaks down and they bring her to the hospital. Chapter 20) Dragon Strike Scene: Sielje Observatory The astronomers look through the telescope and mention something called the Grausvine or Grausvein... The planet is aligned with its two moons, and a meteor is heading towards it. Scene: Gildograd War Room The country leaders are assembled for a meeting. Irving calls it the "dragon 'Grauswein'". They discuss what to do about this new problem. The people of Gildograd start getting to work. Scene: Bridge of the Chateau Items: Force Carrot Irving briefs the party on Grauswein. He tells Ashley that they'll need the power of Lord Blazer to fight him. Talk to the pilot and he'll put the Chateau in position. Boss: Nuclear Dragon Grauswein ~ 9000 HP Chest ~ 7000 HP Wow, this dude is huge. While the others are outside, Ashley is in his room thinking when the fight starts. He can hit everyone for 1600+, and usually will. Use the Life Rune or Mystic a Potion Berry to recover when you have to. But his low amount of hit points doesn't make him that much of a threat. After the fight, Ashley flies in to take him on single-handedly. Boss: Nuclear Dragon Grauswein ~ 11000 HP Chest ~ 8000 HP Remember that if you use your Banishing Buster, you'll change back into regular Ashley. Use your second ability to hit him for around 5000 each time. You'll get a Force Carrot for winning. Ashley isn't in complete control of himself, and the others try to calm him down. Then Marina comes over. Brad tries to keep her away from Ashley, but she's determined to help him. They talk for awhile, but just when he seems to be alright, he grabs by the neck and lifts her into the air. She talks to him calmly, telling him it's alright. He puts her down, changes back to normal, and collapses into her arms. Scene: Gildograd War Room The four leaders talk about the dragon and Odessa. A lot of arguing, it seems. Scene: Chateau Conference Room Your group meets up to get orders from Irving. They talk some more about the dragon and Lord Blazer. The next energy point that they need to attack is inside a volcano. Unfortunately, there's no way to fly the Chateau to the volcano, and there's no beach to land the hovercraft at. What you need to do is use the Live Reflector system to transport there. Warp to Silverant Castle, then walk over to the Live Reflector and activate the yellow transporter. This will take you to the volcano. Walk northwest and search for a cave. Scene: Dormant Volcano Monsters: Giga Mantis, Salamandra, Dendrobium Items: Scud Launcher ARM, Moon Barrette, Full Revive, Force Carrot Follow the path to the northwest and you'll find a small ledge that you can jump off. Going east will bring you back to the entrance, so head north until you get to another screen. You'll find a sign and a gas vent here. Use Riruka's Fire Rod to ignite the gas and blow up the wall. Head through the opening to the west. There's a river of lava here that will hurt you if you step on it. Use Kanon's Roller Dash to go straight across, then aim yourself north and dash that way to a white chest. Have Brad kick it open to get the Scud Launcher ARM. Dash back to the north and go through the west door. Ignite the gas vent here, then head back to the previous room. This time dash south and go through that door. Dash over to the mini island, then jump off the south end and make your way west. Open the chest on the next island for a Moon Barrette. Head out the north doorway. There's a Save Point here. Walk along the ledge and go out the south door. Just run across the lava and go over the narrow bridge to get to another doorway. You'll be on a small ledge with a gas vent across a gap. Ignite it and head back. Jump off the ledge and go through the west doorway on the ground. Make your way up an incline to the north and hop off a ledge right next to a doorway. Go through it and you'll find a chest with a Full Revive in it. Make your way around the west, then back east to find another chest with a Miracle Berry in it. Head through the east doorway. Ignite the vent here to complete the walkway. Walk along the path and you'll find a tall rock at the top. Bomb it out of the way and a gas vent will spring up. Ignite it to find another doorway, then go through. You'll enter a large chamber and hear a voice. Lombardia, a giant mech dragon will drop down and transform from a spaceship to a robot. You'll chat a bit, then he'll attack. Boss: Dragon Caliber Lombardia ~ 9000 HP Chest ~ 7000 HP This guy's physical attack misses a lot, and his magic attack will hit everyone for 800+. Nothing to worry about. You'll get a Force Carrot for beating it. The volcano will start shaking and will erupt. You'll see Lombardia fly out and take you onto the Chateau. Chapter 21) The Four Elements Scene: Chateau Conference Room Irving will talk to you about the Rayline and the Life Energy of Filgaia, Mana. He also tells you about the Caiber Belt, which I think is a star system. Lombardia will launch from the Chateau, and you'll get instructions for flying it. O - Go forward X - Land (Not on forests, water, deserts, or mountains) Up - Ascend Down - Descend R, L, right, and left - Turn Triangle - Menu At this point you can do the Mariabel side quest, or explore other areas of the map that you couldn't get to before. OTHER AREAS: I'm pretty sure you can do this as soon as you beat the dragons... Go to Gildograd and have Ashley talk to Noel in the throne. He'll learn his third Force, Fall Flat. Scene: Magic Wolf Cave Monsters: Armon This cave is south of Gildograd and doesn't have much light. Go through the doorway to the west. You can wander around in here, but it helps a lot to have the Photosphere Tool, which you don't get until the very end of the game. Go through the south doorway, then go down a ramp and bomb the north section of the wall at the end. Go through the opening and immediately bomb the west wall to make a large opening. Go through into a lit room. Go up the ramp and jump off onto the floor with the hexagram, then stand in the middle of it. A voice will speak to you, and you have to speak the wolf's name. Put in "Luceid" in the English version, or "Ru.shi.e.do" in the Japanese version. Ashley will be teleported away. Luceid will join him in the darkness. They'll talk, then Luceid will join you. Luceid will replace Ashley's Night Fencer attack, though it won't look any different... I did do 12800 to an Armon with it though. Scene: Bequeathed Island Underground Cellar (Pirate's Treasure) Items: Power Buster This temple is on the small island on the eastern border of the map. There's a door to either side, and a path leading to a locked door down the center. Through each door is three magically locked chests that you need Duplicators to open. To open the locked door, stand under the dragon head and use Ashley's third Tool (which you won't get until much later on). Go through the door and you'll see a single magically locked chest. As you walk up to it, you'll fight a boss. Boss: Gatorogue ~ 75000 HP This giant octopus seems to be very good at dodging physical attacks. His attacks do between 1000 and 2000, or 1000 to everyone, which is pretty weak for a secret boss. As you may have guessed, his weakness is lightning, so hit him with High Sparks. Lock On will also let Brad do damage, and Tim can use Plasma Bust. It'll be a long fight. You can now use a Duplicator on the chest to get the Power Buster, which raises Strength and Attack Power. Your next mission is to find the Raypoints. Amy will tell you where four of them are if you call her on the phone. 1) Raypoint Frey This one is located on the big island north of Meria Town. But first search in the grass there to find Palace Village. Scene: Palace Village This is the first town where you can get either level 1 or level 2 magic. And in case you didn't notice the giant green dot on your radar, the villagers will tell you where the Raypoint is. And there's new equipment for everybody, so make sure you stop buy the weapon shop. When you're ready, go over to the Raypoint. Scene: Raypoint Fray Monsters: Debonoba, Haborim, GigaFlame Items: Power Apple, Hardy Apple, Sorcery Apple, Vitality Apple, Elder Record Miracle Berry, Terrace Tiara, Crest Graph, Lucky Card, Purubokarubobarubo, Vamblaze Walk north and fall off the orange bridge to get to the chest. Open it to get Riruka's third Tool, the Change Rod. Using the Change Rod on the orange bricks will turn them into large Health crystals. Then hook your way over to the door and go through. Change some more bricks and keep going. You'll end up in front of four burned out torches. The outer two are red, and the inner two are tan. Use the Fire Rod to light only the two red ones and they'll disappear and the door will open. Don't worry about the chest yet and go through the east door. Shoot the Change Rod across the two sets of bricks and crystals to change their positions. You want a brick to be directly above the blue pillar. Then go down the stairs and open the four chests to get an apple of each type. Go back up and clear a path around that one brick you want to keep, then walk around and throw a knife at it. The knife will bounce off and hit the blue pillar, which will open the door at the top of the stairs. Go up the stairs and open the chest in the next room to get a One Gella Coin. Go back to the last room and through the door opposite the blue pillar. At the bottom of the stairs is a ring of torches. Shoot across both outside rows from any direction to light six of the torches, then shoot your Freeze Rod across the row of the two lit tan torches to put them out. Go through the now open door. Change the three crystals to bricks and use them as a bridge to reach the chest. It has the Elder Record in it. Go out the east door. You have to light the three torches fast before the go out to open the door. Start with the top one, then jump down and get the other two. Go down the stairs and change the three crystals, then walk across them to reach a chest. It contains the Vamblaze. Go around and through the east door. There's a ring of torches here that you need to light before the rest go out. Stand in the center and shoot each torch one at a time. A stairway will open up which you can go down. Go down the stairs to find the boss. Boss: Knight of Fray ~ 9500 HP Shield ~ 7500 HP This guy didn't seem to do very much. He had one group attack that did around 500 HP. Keep Riruka ready just in case. When you win you'll get a Miracle Berry and the Terrace Tiara. A Save Point will appear in the center of the room. Continue east and avoid the fireballs as you walk along the walkway. You'll find four torches blocking the way. Shoot diagonally to just hit the two red torches and the door will open. But first use Pooka to open the chest to get a Crest Graph, then go through the door. Go up and down the steps, clearing out the orange bricks if you need to. The next room has more fireballs. Just find the three red torches and light them to open the next door, then go to the south and use Pooka to open the chest to get a Lucky Card. Go through the northeast door and light the single red torch at the end of the hallway. Go back and open the chest you passed to get the Mirage Blazer. Go back east and through the door at the end of the hall. At the end of the next hall, there are stairs into the lava to the north. Use the Roller Dash to the north and you'll reach a chest. It's a new weapon for Riruka, but I don't know what the heck its name is. Dash back and go through the door. You'll reach a bridge with 8 torches on it. Light the first two, then the next three, then the last three, then go through the door to find a red crystal. The Spirit of Fray will talk to Riruka. A light will appear and speak to Riruka as her older sister. Riruka loves everybody now and the Mana of Fray teaches her the Dual Cast Force ability. 2) Raypoint Geo This one is located on the round island in the north sea. Nothing else here other than the temple. Scene: Raypoint Geo Monsters: GigaPoison, Aligatiger Items: Malduke Gaze ARM, Sensou Alnim x4, Cromwell, Giga Tech Fist After going down the main hallway, you'll get to a room with small rooms separated by moveable stone walls. Activate the brown switches by dropping a bomb next to them. The switches only stay on for a small period of time, so move on to the next one before the walls raise up again. Then go through the north door and up the stairs. Jump down the ledges until you get to the bottom next to the other doorway, then go up that staircase and fall off onto the ledge with the treasure chest. Open it to get Brad's third Tool, the Earth Shaker. Using it will knock over any loose blocks. Go through the northeast doorway. Use the Earth Shaker to start the swings moving, then ride them to the other side. Kick open the white chest in the next room to get the Malduke Gaze ARM. Go through the north door and bomb the first crate with a skull on it. The chain reaction will lower the blocks at the top of the stairs. Go back around and up the stairs, then walk diagonally across to the two blocks, then back to the stairs on the other side. Jump off and go through the door. Open the four chests here to get four Sensou Alnims, then go through the west door. There are a lot of large floating blocks here. Go as far west as you can, then use the Earth Shaker to start the blocks moving downward. As soon as the blocks line up, go west until you can jump off to the ledge below. Then go up the stairs and through the door. Go up the stairs and fall off two ledges to reach the chest. Open it to get the Cromwell. Head out the north door and you'll find the boss. Boss: Knight of Geo ~ 9500 HP Shield ~ 7500 HP Like the others, she can hit one person for 1700+, but other than that she's pretty tame. She does have an attack like the Fray knight that will hit everyone for 1000+. When you win you'll get a Miracle Berry and the Dead Heat. After the fight a Save Point will appear. Go through the north door, then head east and go through the east door. Walk as far east as you can, then use the Earth Shaker. Use the two blocks to the northeast, since they'll fall slower. Go up the stairs and out the door. Go up more stairs and out another door. You'll find a large stone slab at the top of some stairs. Get behind it and give it a good kick to knock it over, then head back three rooms. When you get to the falling block room, start in the southeast and use the blocks to your southwest. When you get to the room with the island in the center, walk around the island and go through the door in the northwest corner. Bomb the brown switch and continue until you see the chest. Wait on top of the wall that will carry you up to the chest, then open it to get the Giga Tech Fist. Fall off next to the switch, then bomb it and continue north. Head through the door. Pick up some crystals and head through the east door. The slab you kicked over will form a bridge for you here, so continue out the north door and down the hall to find the Earth crystal. The Spirit of Geo gives Brad the Mana of Geo, and he learns the Boost Attack Force. 3) Raypoint Wing This temple is floating in the air just north of the large forested island in the southwest. Enter from the air. Scene: Raypoint Wing Monsters: Briareos, GigaCloud Items: Fortune Staff, Shellwind, Feather of Nisab, Miracle Berry After going into the first room, you'll find a drawbridge and a button. Use Tim's Arial Bullet to knock the bridge into place, then cross it and go through the door. There are two bridges here. Use the Arial Bullet so that you can walk onto the first bridge, then use Pooka to open the chest to the north to get Tim's third Tool, the Mist Cloak. The Mist Cloak will turn your body into a mist and move you forward one step. You can use it to walk through fences or cross one space wide gaps. Use it to get to the ledge to the south, then shoot the second bridge with the Arial Bullet. Float over with the Mist Cloak, then float over to the west to reach the door. Continue north through another door and up the steps to find an air vent. Stand in front of it and use the Mist Cloak to float over to the door. This room has doors around the outside and four vents in the center to carry you to the outside halls. Go out the northwest door and you'll find a weather vane. You want the west vent to be activated, so shoot the weather vane from the west with the Aerial Bullet. The rooster should be facing east now. Go back inside and float over to the west hall. Use the Cloak again to go through the fence and open the chest to get the Fortune Staff. Fall off the ledge, then go back and shoot the weather vane from the south until the rooster is facing north. Go back inside and float over to the south hall. Use the Cloak to go through the fence and open the chest to get the Shellwind. Go back and shoot the vane until the rooster is facing south. Go inside and float to the north hall and go through the door. As you walk between the trees, you'll find the boss. Boss: Knight of Wing ~ 9500 HP Shield ~ 8500 HP This one could hit one of my guys for 1400+, or did the same group attack as the others which hit for 2000+. Luckily she only used that once, so it seemed like an easy fight. You'll get a Miracle Berry and the Feather of Nisab for winning. A Save Point will appear. Go north when you're ready and use the Mist Cloak while standing on top of the vent. There are four side walkways here and a door in the center. Southwest Go through the door at the end. Hook over to the red diamond and step on it. Fall off, then use the south vent to float to the small platform next to the bridge (which should be straight up now). Then float over and land on the edge of the bridge, then float again over to the fence, then through the fence and open the chest to get the Moon Piece. Northwest Go through the door. There are two large bridges here. Shoot both of them with the Aerial Bullet, then go up the stairs and fall down onto the first. Stand on the very edge and use the Mist Cloak to float over to the second. Then stand on the north edge of the second and use the Cloak again to float west to the door. Go through and open the chest to get the Star Piece. Northeast Go through the door. Shoot the one bridge, then go up the stairs and use the Mist Cloak to float over the button and land on the bridge. Float again over to the door and go through. Open the chest to get the Sun Piece. Southeast Go past the first door and up the side ramp to find another door. Use the Aerial Bullet to knock over the white block with the chest on it. Use Pooka to open the chest and get the Cloud Piece. Now go into the center room where you'll find four pedestals. From north to south, put a piece in each pedestal in the order Cloud, Moon, Sun, Star. The door will open and you'll find the Wing crystal. The light will turn into the Baskar Elder, then into Tim, then into Colette, then into all three at once. Then Tim will talk to Pooka and Pooka will bring him the Mana of Wing, which gives Tim the High Combine Force. 4) Raypoint Muse Items: Blaster Guilty ARM You need the Mist Cloak from Raypoint Wing to get here. First, land Lombardia next to the west entrance of the Gate Bridge (the long bridge next to Sielje). Use the Mist Cloak to walk through the fence and open the chest to get the Blaster Guilty ARM. Use the computer there to raise the bridge. Now warp to your hovercraft and sail under the bridge. The temple is on the north shore. Scene: Raypoint Muse Monsters: Gobashu, Electrigger, GigaFrost Items: Bullet Charge x3, Crest Graph, Perish Knife, Miracle Berry x3, Chamille, Ambrosia Halfway down the steps, there is a blue switch behind one of the pillars. Push the switch to open the sealed door at the bottom. In the next room, use the Mist Cloak to float onto and off of the floating bridge, then open the north door and go through. Stand halfway down the stairs in the next room and use Pooka to open the chest to get a Bullet Charge. There's a group of blocks in the next room that you have to push out of the way. When you get to the other end, you'll step on a switch that makes them all disappear. Walk over and open the chest to get a Crest Graph, then exit to the east. You'll find a valve on the north wall. Open it, then go back to the room with the floating bridge. You'll be able to reach the east door now, so go through and use Pooka as you did before to get a Bullet Charge. In the next room, pull the middle block back one, then push the right block forward two. Go north one space, east two, then push the block to your south. Open the chest to get the Perish Knife. Open another valve in the next room, then head back to the floating bridge. This time go through the west door. Use Pooka to get another Bullet Charge. In this next puzzle room, there are three rows of four blocks each. In row 1 (closest to you), push blocks 1 and 3 to the west, then push 2 to the south and pull 4 to the south one. In row 2, push block 2 and block 4 both to the west once, then push all the blocks you have lined up in the 3 position against the wall. Now pull the three blocks against the south wall one space to the north. Now push blocks 1 and 3 in row 3 to the west once, then push block 2 out of the way to get to the other end. Open the chest to get a Guard Cuiras. Go through the north door and open the valve. Go back to the floating bridge room and you can now reach the double doors at the bottom. Go through to find the boss. Boss: Knight of Muse ~ 9000 HP Shield ~ 8500 HP This guy has a nasty water attack that hits everyone for 2500+. This was actually The hardest fight I had all game (up to this point). Just be ready to Mystic a Potion Berry every once in awhile and you should be okay. Also remember that you can switch out hurt or dead party members in the middle of the fight. You'll get a Miracle Berry and the Chamille for winning. After the fight a Save Point will appear in the center of the room. Go through the lower level door on the north side and jump down to open the chest. You'll get Kanon's third Tool, the Jump Shoes. Stand on the yellow seal and use the Jump Shoes to vault yourself back up to the stairway. Go back to the room where the floating bridge used to be and you'll see that there are four seals on the floor that will let you reach the four upper level doors. Use the Jump Boots on the south seal, which will jump you up to the north door. Go through and over to the puzzle room that only had one statue in it. You'll find a faded tile near the treasure chest. Stand on the tile and use the Jump Shoes 2 or 3 times and you'll fall through. Go out the north door, then through the east door. Jump up the three steps and go through the door. There are four wooden panels on the floor. Jump on the third one from the west and you'll fall through. Walk north and use Pooka to open the three chests. You'll get two Miracle Berries and an Ambrosia. Go through the west door. Jump across the water channel and open the chest to get the Reflex. Jump back and jump up to the door above. There are four more wood panels here. Jump on the second one from the west and you'll be able to reach the north door. The next room has sixteen statues, each with a switch on them. You want each statue in the room to face another one. First start with the three statues that have broken switches by turning the statue that they're facing to face them. (Like numbers face each other) 1 2 2 3 1 4 4 3 5 5 7 8 6 6 7 8 When you're done, the door will open. Go through and you'll find a large crystal that will speak to Kanon. The light will form a child Aisha, who will talk to Kanon about her powers. The Mana of Muse will give Kanon the power of her Level 4 Gatling Force. Chapter 22) Trapped When you've gotten all four Mana powers, you need to call Irving. You'll see a pink cloud pulsating in space. The Trapezohedron will surround the cloud and bring it down to Filgaia. Your next mission is to attack the Trapezohedron, which is located north of Quartly now. But before that, go back into Archeim and into the downstairs room on the east side of town. Use the Mist Cloak to go through the fence and open the two chests to get a Goat Doll and a Life Orb. Head to a point just south of Archeim and search there to find the Trapezohedron. Scene: Trapezohedron Monsters: Round Anemone, Asmodeus Items: One Gella Coin You'll get a call from Irving as you try to enter, just to warn you about some stuff. Walk forward and a bridge will appear in front of you. Each of the four paths leads to a transporter. Go to the southwest, then when you get a choice again, go to the one to the northwest. Ignore the bridge that forms and keep going northwest to the next transporter. Take the northeast path this time. Ignore the first two bridges and take the third to the west. Move along and two bridges will form to the east and north. Take the east bridge and go in the east transporter, then go straight east again into another transporter. You're in a red area now. Go south when a bridge forms, but don't go down the second bridge that forms. Green area now, go north, ignore the bridge, then take the north bridge when two form. You should be in a purple area with a Save Point now. Head into the next transporter. Go straight north across the bridge into a gray area, then take the east bridge that forms, then another east bridge, then go southwest and across the south bridge, then go northeast and southeast into a transporter. A bridge forms to the east, then one to the north. Go north and into the transporter. Go into the bridge that forms to the south, then ignore the bridge to the east and go in the southeast transporter. At the next intersection, go into the transporter to the southwest. A bridge will form to the north. Head west until you find a transporter that still has crystals in front of it and go through. A bridge forms west, then north. Go north into the transporter. Head north again and into another transporter with crystals in front of it. A bridge forms to the north, then later one to the west and east. Go in the east transporter. Jump off the ledge where you see the trail of crystals and go in the transporter. Follow the bridge into the next transporter. Three long bridges will form here. Do NOT go east or west. Take the north transporter to find a yellow cloud. Boss: Ralva ~ 10000 HP Mouth ~ 10000 HP This guy does a lot of status changing, so have Riruka ready to cast Restore on whoever needs it. Other than that, he can hit one of your guys for between 1000 and 2000. You'll get a One Gella Coin for beating him. After the fight you'll get a call from Irving. He says that it's dangerous to stay there and that you should return to the Chateau. Chapter 23) The Fate of ARMS Scene: Valeria Chateau, Conference Room More talk about the fate of Filgaia. Irving wants to take a break and heads off to his room. He thinks about the Caiber Belt, Anastasia, Lord Blazer, and Ashley. Nice camera work here too. Altaecia comes in to see him. Irving goes a little crazy and tries to seduce her... The scene shifts back to the conference room where everyone is gathered again. Irving wants you to check out the area near Halmetts for a monster. Leave the Chateau and teleport over to there, then hop in Lombardia and fly a little to the east where you'll find a cave. Scene: (something)'s Crazy Heat Monsters: Gelgob, Sabretooth Items: Ovaries Cruncher, Red Jacket There's a lot of wreckage around here. Use the Mist Cloak north of the first yellow ramp you find, then use the Earth Shaker to blow out all the sealed openings in the ship. Float back and walk up the larger yellow ramp, then float to the north onto the ledge of the ship and go in the large door. Fall down and open the chest to get the Ovaries Cruncher. (I don't think that's what they had in mind...) Leave the ship and come back around to the large door. Go in the door north of the chest and turn on the computer. Leave the room and go in the room on the right side and turn on the computer there. Then go through the larger center door and turn on the two side computers. Outside right next to the first yellow ramp there's another opening in the ship. Use the Mist Cloak to float right into the doorway. Turn on the computer here, then go through the south door. Open the chest here to get the Red Jacket. Now you'll be able to activate the large computer, and everyone will start reading data from the computer. You'll get a call from Kate, who's worried about something. Irving and Altaecia have apparently disappeared from the Chateau. Ashley tells her that they'd look into it. Scene: Chateau Bridge Ashley gets a transmission on the computer. I guess that Odessa has Irving now? Your group confirms their goals of saving the planet. Scene: Billy's House Brad returns to Sebokku Village to talk to Billy. Meryl tells him that Billy looks happy. Scene: Sielje Riruka is sitting at the front desk of a classroom while Terry talks to her. Riruka tries to tell him that he's really talented or something. He gets embarrassed. Scene: Baskar Village Tim is on the altar to Zephyr talking to Colette. She holds his hand. Scene: Damzen Kanon is on top of a windmill in front of the hospital. She talks to herself about her bloodline. Scene: Meria Town Mariabel is on one of the walls talking to Tony. She calls him "Master" a couple of times. I think they maybe be blood related. Scene: Marina's Room Ashley and Marina are talking in here. She gets up close to him as the screen fades out. Scene: Valeria Chateau Bridge Ashley is alone in front of the computer. Each of the party members returns one at a time and gives their support to Ashley. He decides to set out again. Kate tells you to head to the Inner Sea near the Lost Garden. The whole area is covered in forest though, so you'll need to park Lombardia far to the southeast and walk the rest of the way. Take a detour first... Scene: Absolute Luck Zone (Good Luck Zone) Monsters: Golpa Items: Crest Graph, Texas Number This large dungeon is located directly west of Sielje on the other side of the bay. In the first room you'll notice that there are two locked doors. Equip the Fengalon Rune, then wander around in here until you get into a fight with a Golpa. During the fight, use the Fengalon Rune to steal from it until you get the Secret Key. Use the key from your item menu while standing in front of the left door, then go through. Open the chest to get a Crest Graph, then go back and unlock the right door. In the next room, unlock the right door first and open the chest to get the Texas Number. Go back and unlock the left door. Unlock the left door in the next room and open the chest to get the Amulet. Then unlock the right door and unlock the door in the next room. You'll find a tablet in the next room. Have any of your characters with Best luck read the tablet, then walk up and open the door. (equip the Amulet if you need better luck) In the last room you'll receive the power of Chapapanga, the Luck Rune. The tower is at the north edge of the peninsula. There's a very narrow path leading up to the plateau which the tower is on. Scene: High Spiral Tower Monsters: Barole, Mercurius, Leprechaun, Pabilsog, Aero, Elbaki, Sunflayer, Coatl Items: Miracle Berry x6, Ambrosia x3, EZ-Misslemite ARM, Raging Nova ARM Head down the hall and down the stairs. You'll come to a bridge of blocks, some of which fall when you step on them. Just keep trying until you get across. Before you go through the door, go up the east stairs and back across the room to find a chest with a Miracle Berry. Go through the door and down more steps. There's a black stone with red writing on it here, and seven plaques on the wall. You need to press each plaque in a certain order. The correct order is the order of the Japanese days of the week. (The Japanese week starts with Monday) They go Moonday, Fireday, Waterday, Woodday, Goldday, Earthday, Sunday, so push the plaques accordingly. (thanks to Rob's FAQ for the hint) Sun Moon Tree Earth Gold Water Fire (Note: The English version also corresponds to the days of the week) If you get the order right, the door will immediately open. Go down some more stairs. In the next room you'll find a red diamond and a purple dome. Place a bomb next to the dome and then stand on the diamond before the bomb explodes. Go up the stairs and over the entrance and do the same with the other two domes. Go up the stairs and use the Mist Cloak to float over to the chest, which has a Miracle Berry in it. Go through the south door and down the stairs. The next room has three domes and three switches. Activate them one at a time, then go up the stairs and use the Cloak to get over the gap. Go up top and bomb the last dome, then run over to the last switch. Head out the north door. There are two blocks here with blue triangles on them. Float over to the first one, then step on the triangle. The block will move backwards. Move off and step on it again to move it back. Then step on the second triangle and continue to the east, floating over to the ledge. Float over to the central stairway and go through the west door. Open the chest in here to get the last Tool, Ashley's Photosphere. This is a flare gun that shoots straight up and brightens any dark room. Go back into the last room and float off the south ledge, then go over to the south door. Use the Photosphere while standing in front of the door to hit the switch above it. Go through the door and down the stairs. The next room has three sets of moving blocks. Float onto the first red block and step on the triangle. Move over onto the second red triangle. Now float of the east side onto the red block below. Step on the triangle, move off, then step on it again. Move over onto the second triangle, then walk off to the east and go up the stairs. Float off onto the blue block and step on the triangle, move off, then step on it again. Move over to the second blue triangle, then float off to the north onto the red block. Step on the triangle, then move onto the second triangle and float off the north side. Go up the stairs and float off onto the upper red block. Step on the triangle, then move off onto the second triangle. Step off the west side onto the blue block below, then float to the west, go up the stairs, and out the door. And down another staircase. Use Photosphere to lighten the next room, then leave out the south door and go down another staircase. You need to light the same torches that were lit on the last floor, which were the four that aren't on the corners. Light the north, east, and west torches, then put out any unwanted flames by shooting your Freeze Rod diagonally at the flame so that the ice hits the wall after putting the fire out. Then stand in front of the south door and light the south flame by shooting straight north. The walls will raise and you can walk around and out the north door. Go down the stairs. When you get to the bottom, a boss will appear. Boss: Grodine ~ 8000 HP Left Hand ~ 10000 HP He can bubble attack everyone for 700+, or hit one person for 900+. He's weak against lightning, so High Spark is very effective. With Riruka and Tim, you shouldn't need more than 2 rounds to finish him. You'll get an Ambrosia for winning. A Save Point will appear after the fight. Go out the south door and down another staircase. You'll find a large wall at the bottom with an eye on it. Touch the wall and you'll get into a fight. Do the same with the other wall. Go out the north door, then come back in. The walls should be back. Go up the west stairs and walk across the first wall, then go to the back and open the chest to get an Ambrosia. Go back through the north door and down the stairs. There are a lot of walls in the next room. Go up one of the side stairs and activate the dome switch there. Walk across the wall you just lowered and over to the southern wall. There's a little bit of space free that you can drop down onto in front of the wall. Fight it and land on the two blue blocks. Then just float over to the door and go through. Go down the staircase. Go up the stairs in the next room, walk across the wall, float south onto the platform below, then walk to the north and open the chest to get an Ambrosia. Go back and stand on the first wall. Float over onto the second, then the third, then float over to the left ledge, walk up, and float over onto the last wall. Walk across it and float off the other side onto the ledge. Float over and fall in front of the door, then go up the other stairs and open the chest to get a Miracle Berry. Go out the north door and down the stairs. There are many walls in this next room. If you have Mariabel, have her Electel the lightning bolt on the east wall. Either way, fight the first wall in the western-most hall and open the chest behind it to get a Miracle Berry. For the least amount of fighting, clear out the three walls in the eastern-most hall. Go out the west door if you opened it and kick open the chest to get Brad's strongest group ARM, the EZ-Misslemite. Then go back and through the south door. Fight the first two walls in the western-most hall, then move to the hall to the right and fight that wall, then right again and fight another wall, then right again and fight the last two walls. Go up the stairs and use all the walls you left behind as bridges to reach the door. Go through and down the stairs. Go across the bridge and down more stairs. And if this whole experience hasn't been boring enough, cross another bridge and go down more stairs. Here you can try your luck to see what's behind any of the walls, or just keep going south out the door. I'll do the work for you and tell you that only one wall has something behind it, and that's the second from the north on the east side. If you have Mariabel, use the Electel from the second step of the stairway closest to the lightning bolt. Shoot diagonally and you should hit the target. If you don't have Mariabel, you wasted your time (I certainly did). Go through the new doorway to get Ashley's Raging Nova ARM. Go out the south door and down the stairs. You'll finally be at the bottom. Boss: Manufestu ~ 10000 HP Right Knee ~ 5000 HP Left Knee ~ 5000 HP His attacks are kinda weak, but he can instantly kill one of your characters. Give yourself enough FP to cast High Revive, then hit him with whatever you want. First Aid should keep you from dying. You'll get two Miracle Berries for winning. Walk towards the light and you'll be transported to the final area, Glaive Le Gable. Scene: Glaive Le Gable (Gurabu Ru Gaburu) Monsters: Will o' Wisp, Mollusk, Algos, Doomsday, Orgon Energy, Prometheus, Cronzon, Hyuberion There are six pillars in this area that are switches to open doors in the next area. Each door leads to one of the best armors in the game (except for Mariabel's), so it's a good idea to get them all. Each one will raise your defense by at least 100 and double your magic resistance. This part is tricky, so I'll draw a map. The 2's represent places where there is a locked door and two skull pillars. You have to look closely to see the skull faces on them. To open the doors, both skulls have to be facing the door. When you rotate one pillar 90 degrees, the other one rotates 180 degrees in the opposite direction. There are two steps to getting them to face the door... 1) Rotate one pillar until both are facing in the same direction 2) Alternate rotating one, then the other until the door opens. For each of the pillars marked with an X, keep rotating them until you hear a click and the screen shakes. _ __ __ |X| |O| ____| |_________ | | | | |2| | |--| |-------+ | | | ___| |__| | ____| |__| |____ |X | | X| ---| |----+ | |--| |--| |---- | |_______| |__| | | | | | |X| +---------| |----+ --- __________| |__________ |X 2 2 X| ----------| |---------- | | |S| --- When you get to the Save Point (marked O), you'll find the six doors leading to treasure chests. You'll get the Brave Vest, the Auto Kuchul, the Lovely Sotos, the Perfect Libra, the Coshta Bauwer, and the Nine Lives. Take the big center door to move on. Go straight again and you'll hear Irving's voice. He tells you to split up your party. You have to choose three people to go out on their own. All three will have to cross swinging bridges, then fight one of the three roots. All three are difficult fights. I highly suggest using Brad, Riruka, and Kanon, in that order. Before the fights, equip Riruka with the Clear Chime and Kanon with the Perfect Libra. Boss: First Root ~ 15000 HP He can do between 500 and 2000 to you a round, so use a Potion Berry or Miracle Berry if your HP get below 2000. I didn't see any surprises. Get 100 FP as soon as you can and use Lock On/Linear Rail Cannon until it dies. Boss: Second Root ~ 15000 HP Same as First Root, but some of his attacks caused status changes. Confusion is bad, so equip the Clear Chime. Use any of the High elemental spells, Restore when you get poisoned, and High Heal when your HP get low. Boss: Third Root ~ 15000 HP Same as Second Root. Use the strongest attacks you can, but hold off on using Gatling until you're sure you can kill it. My Gatling Level 3 with Phalanx did 5000. After the fights, the citizens of Meria Town will be outside waiting for the King. The people are upset, but Marina calms them down. She prays for everyone's safety. You control the three that are left now. You'll find six skull pillars in front of a sealed door. When you rotate one, the two beside it rotate in the opposite direction. Start at any of the pillars and rotate it once, then go around the circle rotating each pillar once. Do this a second time, and they should all be facing the door, which will open. The next door will open automatically, and you'll find Irving and Altaecia on the other side. Ashley confronts Irving, who seems to be the mastermind behind Odessa(?) Altaecia flashes and Ashley finds himself alone. Until a really ugly monster shows up. Boss: Caiber Belt Core ~ 32100 Right Shoulder ~ 20000 HP Left Shoulder ~ 20000 HP This guy can hit you with a lot of status changing attacks, so equip the appropriate items if you have them. Tim should use First Aid almost every round, and Ashley should Access as soon as he can. The Right Shoulder is weak against ice, and the Left is weak against fire. The core absorbs any elemental attack, so just use Night Fencer. If he uses his status change attack often, this fight will be very difficult. And Mariabel was practically useless for me. After the fight, everyone gets back together. As they start to leave, Ashley explodes. Sort of. He finds himself alone on the moon or something with Agartram stuck into the ground. Lord Blazer talks to him about "heroes" and Filgaia. Ashley goes to draw Agartram. "We don't need such things as hereos!" The others get up and give their power to Ashley. He draws the sword and becomes the new Sword Hero. Boss: Lord Blazer ~ A lot You have new abilities now. Refresh will heal you, Providence will raise your magic resistance, Aerial Guard will raise your physical resistance, and I don't know what Salvation does... might resurrect you if you die. Blade Graze will heal you to top, I think. The first time you use Arc Impulse, Anastasia will notice and give you her power. The second time, Colette and the Baskar people will give you their power. The third time, Terry and the people of Sielje will give you their power. The fourth time it's Noel and the people of Gildograd. Fifth is Meryl, Rush, and the people of Sebokku Village. Sixth is Tony, Scott, and the crew of the Chateau. Seventh is Marina, Irving, Altaecia, and the people of Meria Town. This last shot will kill him. Endgame Ashley is transported back to Glaive Le Gable with the others. They all go back to Filgaia together. Colette paces back and forth until Tim walks over and takes her hand. The crew of the Chateau gives a gun salute. Marina and Mariabel help rebuild Meria Town. Brad helps rebuild Sebokku Village. Riruka looks at the stars, and Terry comes up to see her, then gets really embarrassed. Tim, Riruka, Ashley, and Brad come to a crossroads, then go their separate ways. The cat finally gets off the roof. Ashley comes home to Meria Town with Marina. They kiss. Credits Ashley tries to bake bread. ^^; Riruka is asleep at her desk. Brad reads a letter. Colette brings a letter to Tim. Kanon reads a letter at a bar which is a mess... Mariabel reads a letter under an umbrella while chaos goes on in the background... There's a collection of pictures of characters from the story. One Year Later... Riruka meets Brad, Tim, Mariabel, and Kanon in a field in front of Agartram. Ashley and Marina show up with their newborn babies. THE END You are asked if you want to save your statistics to an Extra File.

At some point late in the game, the game will let you do this. If anyone knows the exact point, email me. Raftina: Go to Colette's house in Baskar Village and talk to her using Tim. A scene will play out where Tim and Colette are alone, and they say that they love each other. This will awaken Guardian Lord Raftina, Goddess of Love, and you'll receive the Love Rune. (This allows Tim to learn Full Repair, which heals one person to top) Justine: Go to Billy's house in Sebokku Village and talk to him using Brad. Brad and a younger Billy will be shown alone, and Brad will talk to him about being a hero. They'll awaken Guardian Lord Justine, God of Courage, and you'll receive the Courage Rune. (This allows Tim to learn Brave Lancer, the best single enemy spell) Zephyr: Go to Marina's house in Meria and talk to her using Ashley. Late in the game, Marina will be on the second floor of Valeria Chateau in one of the side rooms. A young Marina grows up as Ashley talks to her. She tells Ashley how much the fighting hurts her. They hold hands and make a wish for hope for the future, and Guardian Lord Zephyr, God of Hope, speaks to them. You get the Hope Rune. (This allows Tim to learn Judgement Day, the best enemy group spell) Mariabel Side Quest Scene: Noble Red Castle Monsters: Vermillion, Body Snatcher, Caryupudes, Mistereg Items: Sensou Alnim x4 This castle is located south of Gildograd. It's also big and confusing. First go up the stairs on the left side, then through the upper west doorway. Go straight north and through the doorway to the east. From here you'll be able to drop down and open the two chests, both which have Sensou Alnims in them. (Use Pooka to save time) Head north and up the stairway. Pull only the lever on the right, then go back downstairs and through the north door. Go over the wall you just lowered and through the north door. Go north, then down the east hall and through the door there. Then go north down the hall where you'll find two doors on the left and one on the right. Through the right door is a Save Point. Go back out into the hall and through the south door on the left. Pull the lever, then go back and head through the northern door. Cross a bridge and go through the door. Go south and through the first east door to find another lever. Pull it, then go back and head out the south door. Go through the door to the east, then through the door to the north, where you'll cross a bridge and pull another lever. Head around to the northeast where the Save Point is, then head south and around to the center of the castle (where the long red carpets are). Go north past where the three walls that you've lowered were, and you'll end up finding a white tablet. Keep going down the stairway past two more white tablets to find a coffin at the bottom. The coffin will open and the vampire girl will come out, who it turns out is Mariabel!! o_o She'll tell you a little about herself, then search around in her coffin to get her Tool, the Electel. It sends out a high-voltage lightning bolt in the direction you're facing. Once you're transported outside, go back in and use Mariabel to read all of the books in the castle. When you find a book entitled "Golem", (from the entrance, go up the stairs and through the east door, then keep heading north and east) look around the room for a lightning bolt symbol on the wall. Use the Electel on the symbol to open a doorway. Go through and down the staircase. You'll find a platform like Mariabel's with a green crystal on it. Examine the crystal to learn her Level 2 Force, Arsgalz. This attack summons the golem from the Disc 2 opening, who'll hit all enemies for 2000+. Scene: Kaiju Card Shop Items: Stuffed Bear You can now head downstairs and electrocute the little robot. He'll move out of the way and let you go down the stairs. Downstairs is a shop where you can buy Heal Berries and Mini Carrots. Use the Change Rod to turn the large health crystals into bricks, then use the Mist Cloak to go through the fence. Throw a knife diagonally at the wall to have it fall down onto the blue pillar, then use the Mist Cloak to float over the gap and press the button that was behind the block. A chest will fall down that contains the Stuffed Bear. If you talk to the guy at the upstairs desk, he'll give you the Album which will let you see all the monsters you've fought anytime you want by choosing "Album" from the main menu. (This is apparently because I've been carrying around an item called an "Album Coupon" for a long time...) Scene: Meriabel Castle Head to Meria Town and enter the castle. In the western part, you'll find a large library with a painting on the wall of Margaret Shin Meriabel, Queen Meriabel the 14th, who looks surprisingly like Mariabel... There's a book on the east side that only Mariabel can read. This book will give you the location of another castle on a southern island. Fly over to the large forested island in the southwest corner of the map and land in the the small clearing, then go over and search for the castle. Scene: Catacomb of Promise Monsters: Angrang, Founder Lizard, Myukal, Scarecrow Items: Ebony Shadow, Manga Zenmai Tool, Mecha Screw, Space/Time Rune You need to have Tim's Mist Cloak to even get into this place. (See Raypoint Wing) Once you float over the gap, go up to the lightning bolt symbol on the wall in the northwest corner. Shoot it with the Electel to blow open a doorway. Go through the door and down the stairway, then through another door. Go down the walkway and open the chest to get the Manga Zenmai Tool. It's basically a turnkey that will activate certain blocks. If you're not next to a block that she can use it on, she'll just throw the key into the air and let it bounce off her head. Use it on the smiling block in the center of the room to rotate the walkway. Open the chest on the west side of the room to get the Ebony Shadow. Go through the east door and use the key on the block here. It will move in small increments across an invisible walkway, and you need to follow it without falling off. There's no easy way to do this, you just need to keep trying. When you finish (use the Mist Cloak at the end), you can open the two chests to get a Crest Graph and a Mecha Screw. Go through the north door and into a room with four coffins. There's a magic door to the east that can be opened with a Duplicator. Inside you'll find Dan Dairam's Rune, the Space/Time Rune. (Huge magic boost) Go back and through the north door, then down the stairs to find a nice living area. Mariabel will remember her parents and you'll leave the catacombs. Teleport to Valeria Chateau, then teleport to your hovercraft and sail back to the Lost Garden. Scene: Lost Garden Items: My Mike Tool, Full Revive, Duplicator, Crest Graph, Mecha Screw In the second room you'll find a smiling block. Use the key on it and it will hop backwards and into the hole in the floor, opening the door. Go through and you'll find five chests. Open them to receive a Full Revive, a Duplicator, a Crest Graph, a Mecha Screw, and Mariabel's last Tool, My Mike. You can use My Mike at any of the rotating pyramids to summon a monster. Now go to Damzen and have Mariabel talk to Luca in the saloon. Luca tells you to go south of Silverant to find a strange place. Scene: Fab Laboratory (Warning: You must be really high level to finish this place. 43rd didn't cut it.) After reading the Keep Out! sign, Toka and Ge will show up behind you. You have a nice comic relief conversation with them. Ashley agrees to let them help you, but Riruka is a little skeptical. When they finally shut up, you'll need to get on one of the elevated ledges to the left or right of the closed door and hit the post with the lightning bolt on top of it with the Electel Tool. The door will open. In the next room you'll find Toka and Ge's UFO. Toka says that they come from the lizard star. Go through the door to the south. When you go up the stairs you'll find three computers. Examine one of them to start up another conversation. Each terminal will ask you a question about the game. A question about: Health Crystals (Ans. 10% 1%) Emma Motor (Ans. Electromagnetic) the boss Kalivos (Ans. Temporary?) Lombardia (Ans. 40) Item you can steal from a Rindbulm (Ans. Potion Berry) The ages of your party members (Ans. 46) Experience for leveling up (Ans. The same) The #1 character How much you can buy a Heal Berry for in Halmetts Crest Sorcerer (Ans. 40 Spells) Resistance Parameter Gear Items (Ans. Holy Grail) Males, Females, and Luceid (Ans. Male) Length Try opening the door. If one of your answers is wrong, it will buzz and the lights will turn red. I couldn't read the specifics of the questions, so I just guessed until I got through. If you know an answer that I don't have, send me an email. In the next room you'll find another set of terminals... The questions are the same though. You'll finally reach a large computer and a boss. Boss: Bulkokidon ~ 28700... at least Chest ~ ? Drill ~ ? I doubt I was even close to killing it.
