Okay this is how to beat him.
1)have genis and raine in party.
2)make raine only use revitalize.
3)have full item stock of apple,orange,lemon,and pinapple gel and life bottles. And mabye some mangel gel(in case you run out of orange gels) and last 1 all-divide.
4)use the most strongest wepons you have.
As soon as the battle begins use all-divide.always use the u.attack when you can.the player you use always use a attack that knocks him down,also use it when he's about to use a spell.almost always block.when raine and/or genis doesn't have enough mp use a orange or lemon gel.apple and pinapple gels use as you like.and also be the decoy.this'll also be the longest battle because he is stronger than mithos.to beat him will be 10%.but I beat him at level 66. So you might be able to beat him at level 50.done.you are welcome.
Go to cats village with 0 Gald and talk to the cat near the cat thats sleeping. He'll say something and then change your level to 1.well not really.talk to him again and he'll say he was kidding.
You can start to restore Luin after Raine heals Pietro's sickness.
In order to restore Luin you have to donate a certain amount of Gald. If you donate too much you won't get the other Gald back and it will not be added to your next donation.
You must donate in steps. After you donate walk out and back in Luin to see a change.
Stages 1-7 can be completed before you go to Tethe'alla for the first time.
Stages 8-15 can be completed once you return to Sylvarant

Okay... You will need Genis, Lloyd, and Colette to pull this off. You need to be Lloyd... (NOTE: you only need to be Lloyd to get "Combo Master".) anyway, set one of his shortcuts (c-stick) to Genis' "Tidal Wave". NOTE: You may want to save outside of the Temple of Earth with a full unison gage, as this will take a few tries. Anyway, the unison layout should be like this:
Lloyd: Sword Rain: Alpha
Colette: Hammer Rain
Genis: Tidal Wave
Presea: Endless Infliction
Okay, you will also need an Hourglass.
Next, go to the Temple of Earth. Save outside (optional; recommended). NOTE: Make sure the strat. For your characters is "Hold Position". Or, if other people are playing, make sure they don't attack. Enter, and fight the Dragon. Make Genis use Tidal Wave. When he attacks, make sure the combo thing starts counting. If not, repeat. Anyway, assuming it does, about 3-4 hits into it, make Colette or Presea use an Hourglass. Use Sword Rain: Beta 1-2 times on the Dragon. Then, do this: A+A+A+Z. Press the buttons (A, B, X, Y)to use it. Then Colette and Lloyd should preform "Stardust Rain". Hopefully you got 100+ combo. For even higher combos, use more Hourglasses, and when you use them make everybody attack. Hope this is useful! If you failed, load, and try again. I did it in like 2-4 tries.
Before you get to any seals. When you get to the desert oasis lloyd gets captured and taken to a jail for excution. There is a room that has three piers against the far left wall. Hit them with the sorcers ring and they will turn an object in the floor which is a gamecube. You turn them more to get a better look.
I canot find how to restore the towns that are destroyed in the game.So can someone help me?
First get Zelos and equip him with the Ex-gem level 2. Use the personal and it done. Talk with the people( evan in Sylvarant) and they will give money and items.
NOTE: It will only work with female people.
THEY CAN GIVE A RUNE BOTTLE!
Ok in the earth temple in Tethe'alla when you fight Gnome if you lose all he will do is tell you to learn a thing or two from Mithos.
Once you learn the rising falcon equip the garnet to lloyd.
Now, this hint is not available to all players. You just have to make sure you already summoned Gnome, the the summon spirit of Earth in Tetthe'alla. Now, go to the Temple of Earth and go to the dragon by going through the secret passage. Fight the dragon, BUT I recommend having Genis, Raine, and two other melee fighters (although I recommend Colette for one of them).
This is easier if you are at least level 60 and Raine has Ray, Genis has cyclone, and Colette has Stardust Cross for best results. Now, I just had Raine, Colette, and -third melee fighter- do whatever they wanted, as I was playing Genis. I had Genis constantly cast Ice tornado, and I fought the dragon three times (get out of the secret passage and go back in to refresh the dragon) to enable Unison Attack. So, for the U attack, have Raine cast Ray, Colette cast Stardust Cross, and Genis cast Cyclone, and whatever with the last person. (Colette doesn't HAVE to use Stardust Cross).
Ray and Cyclone will trigger Prism Stars, and it does a heck a lot of damage. I noticed that you get at least 350 exp with the dragon, and I compared it to the monsters of Latheon Gorge (if you passed it) and the dragon gives more exp, although the dragon gives around 800 exp if you fight it earlier. And you may have noticed that the dragon gives 10,000 gald when you kill it, so when you are constantly killing it, it gives you great exp and gald.
Ok your can first see the sword dancer in the tunnel after you beat sheena on ossa trail. Go inside the tunnel, go straight to the end and then you will see a skull. Be sure to bring lots of healing items. He is very strong and has low hp (high for that part of the game) I suggest going back after you reach the lown of luin and asgard.
And now my problems: I have a question on the questions page about where to go after the wind seal. I went to luin but it wasn't in shambles. No walkthough is telling me where to go it only tells me that luin is goin to be in shambles. So plz answer my question. :D ill rate it a 10 if you do and it's valid.
So far I can only do this for Lloyd and Kratos this is what you do
1. Make sure there is no one in the party that can heal
2.Make Lloyd or Kratos realy week so the next time they git hit they die
3.Have them do a hid air move like Light Spear and make sure they get hit and die
For some strange reson Kratos or Lloyd wont die they git back up and there HP is 0 and when they git hit they don't die and it can stay like this as long as they don't get healed. NOTE: This is random so some times they might die
This is not realy a cheat but funny things found in the game for people that like that kinda stuff I do. I found 6 can you find more?
1. In Palmacosta on the steam boat there are two poeple re-in-acting a sine from the Titanic.
2. The Straw Hat that you can equip is Luffy's from One Pice wich was a realy famus cartoon in japan before it came to the U.S.
3.In the slums of Meltokio there is a man looking for a cute girl that sells flowers the person he is looking for is Airth form FF7.
4.After clearing Party Advanced Level in the arena there will be an Exhibition match with characters from other Tales games and they are Garr, Farah Oersted and Meredy.
5.In the top-left corner of Flanoir there are three statues and one of them is Namco's oldest mascot, Pac-Man!
6.In Toize valley mine you will find a white square that is a trap you must destroy. That is Bacura the invincible block of Xevious (released in 1982)
I hope you like what I found.
Tired of Genis' spellcasting being interrupted? Simply put on these ex-gems, which will combine to give him an ex-combo that will make his casting go uninterrupted!
Put these on Genis: (you will NOT be able to get these at the beginning of the game, so don't try...)
-Lv. 4 ex-gem: Spell Save
-Lv. 4 ex-gem: Spell Charge
-Lv. 4 ex-gem: Speed Cast
-Lv. 3 ex-gem: Rythm
The quickest way to get this ex-combo is to save up every level four ex gem you find and put it on Genis. Don't waste them on anybody else.
As soon as you get more characters in the game, be sure to try them all out. The game plays much better (and is a whole lot more fun) if you play with who you are comfortable with. Are you an action-packed fighter? Try out Lloyd or Regal. Or are you much more fit to sit in the back and cast spells? Genis and Raine are the top choices here. It all comes down to how you like to play this game.
These alternate costumes are really just titles that change the appearance of your character. Get Lloyd's "Arggh, Me Hearties" title by rebuilding Luin and (you must have Zelos in your party) speaking with a pirate named Aifread next to the boat. Colette's "Maid" Costume is received by entering the castle in Meltokio (once again, Zelos must be in your party) and talking to two maids around the royal library. They'll hire Colette as a maid, and you'll get to see a funny scene. Then Colette gets her Maid costume. Genis gets his "Katz Katz Katz" costume in Meltokio, too. Go to the slums and a kid chasing a Katz will appear. Go to the Katz Village in Sylvarant (it's in the top left corner of your map) and talk to the mayor of the village. He's spinning around near the top. Return to the Metokio slums and Genis will get his costume. Regal's "God of the Kitchen" costume is also in Meltokio. Walk up to The Wonder Chef and some other chef arguing next to the castle. The Wonder Chef will disappear, so Regal and the other chef have a cooking battle. Afterwards, the Wonder Chef comes back and gives Regal his new clothes. You can get Raine's "Maiden" costume by just walking up to the stone dais in Asgard. Presea's "Klonoa" costume is found in Altamira. Talk to George an he'll start talking about their mascot. Presea fits the bill, so she gets her Klonoa outfit. Kratos has his Judgment costume, which is his Cruxis costume. You can get this by choosing Kratos when the people knock on your door in Flanoir. You can't get some other costumes, though. I suggest getting this on your second play-through. Zelos gets the "Masked Swordsman" clothes in Meltokio. Simply walk up to Zelos' house to get it. Then you can go into Zelos' house and speak with his butler, who will mention Princess Hilda. Go to the castle and the king will ask that you save the princess. Go to the Grand Tethe'alla Bridge, and then the Gaoracchia Forest exit near Ozette and Mizuho. Zelos will obtain the title of "Princess Guard". Return to Meltokio Castle and the King will host a party in celebration of this victory. Choose one person at the beginning of the party, and then talk to 3 people in your group at the party. Then those people and Lloyd will obtain their party costumes. In Altamira, there will be a woman in front of the hotel. Find her children in the right order and she'll give you swimsuits.
NOTE 1: Kratos cannot get a swimming costume or a party costume.
NOTE 2: You won't be able to receive any of the above costumes if you haven't:
A) Completed the Flanoir Doctor Event
B) Gotten the Vinheim Key
Aiight look, this are my hints. Well for one I got a combo for Lloyd: attack 3 times, use "sword rain", then use "beast". (You get beast and sword rain later in the game if you dont have it).
Once you get Raine and if you decide to put her in your party, it'd be smart to have her: stay away from the enemy, and to have her heal everyone. It'll save life bottles and health items.
With Kratos you should have him protect the weakest chartacter and/or attack same. With attack same it will kill enemies faster because when your not attacking, chances are that he is.
Genis is more of a magical type so keep him on move freely but make him use his magic a lot. He learns a really good attack: "stalagmite" which is VERRY strong for where I'm at.
Then again I'm not even on disc two yet, but I'm almost there. I'll give more info when I get farther in the game.
