Easy Exp.

First, go to Queens and buy a flapping fish(and a block of ice if you want), then go into the Queens dungeon at any floor(higher floors would help more), when you're in, go to the back floor entrance and put the fish in the water, then defeat all of the enemies, now go to the back floor and defeat the enemies, then just keep going back and forth and you will level up fairly fast.

Another High ABS Back Floor

In the Sun & Moon Temple, back floor 17, there are (8) Blue Dragons that give you 24 ABS

That's 192 ABS every time you go in there

ruby spells

You change to ruby and press R2 to aim and then press X, NOT O! The game lies when it tells you that.

Handy Tips

In hard dungeons like the Sun/Moon Temple you should always keep a few Stand-In and Revival Powders they are very usefull for example: If Toan is your best player and he dies you can use Stand-In powder to select your second best player, then he can use Revival Powder to heal Toan! Neat Huh?

Dark Cloud Boss Strategies

1. Divine Beast...
Use both of your characters...use Xiao to hit him while he is flying, and he will fall...switch to Toan, attack with your sword. You can use stamina potions and feathers but it's not neccesary. If you do it right he'll be dead in no time and you should take little to no damage.

2. Forest Guardian
Again, multiple characters is the key, though you don't really have to do it this way. Auto target the monkey...see how it targets his big hairy toes? And golly..you have a big hammer...smash em! Get close, wait until he swings at you and move in close and attack. He will be stunned, giving you time to use your strongest character to move in and attack a while. Repeat until he's dead. Again, feathers and potions are helpful but far from essential.

3. Shipwreck...ice queen
Hands down this is the most annoying boss in the game. A couple ways to approach her: a)Stock up on feathers and potions and run in circles until you get close...when you are within range, use your sword to attack until it breaks her shield...then back off and use a ranged attack with the fire element. Repeat. B)This takes longer but it's really easy. Equip Ruby and Xiao with a fire attack. When the battle starts, run and hide behind a pillar. This will block her attack that freezes you. Pop out between her attacks and shoot her with Xiao until it says "no effect"...switch to Ruby and shoot her once (more will have no effect) then back to Xiao. Just repeat this until she's dead. It takes a while.

4. The Kings Curse
Again, you want to use the person you just got. Notice how the boss is made up of that black wind stuff that Ungaga could blow away? Same idea here. Get some distance between you and the boss, turn and face him and hold down the attack button to do his special. The boss will walk right into it and be stunned, giving you a chance to switch to your strongest cahracter and whack him. Switch back to Ungaga and repeat.

5. Minotaur.
This is one if the easiest if you get the trick. I used Toan exclusively. Make use of his affection for those kegs by standing with one between you and the minotaur. He will charge you but stop when he hits the keg and pick it up. While he is drinking it you have time to charge in and hit him. When you do he will run off giving you time to find another keg to hide behind. You can also use a ranged attack while you are wating for him to come back if you want.

6. Dark Genie
Form 1-He thrusts up his hands at you, not too hard to avoid. Notice on the hands what color eyes there are and match your elemental attack to that. The wind attack happens once in a while which is pretty much unavoidable. I wouldn't worry about it though, you'll need your resources later. If he ducks under his wings, he will be changing the color of his hands, so be prepared to switch elements. Just keep hacking at him and eventually...

Form 2- He will now do the unavoidable wind thing ALL THE TIME. Ugh. Stamina potions are great here, you still fall down but don't take any damage. The laser attack it's easily avoidable. Just switch to whoever has the strongest ranged attack and go to work on him.

Form 3- Ok, this is tricky because there is a lot going on, if you get hit you are dead quick and the background is disorienting. But, it's not that tough. I used Toan with the holy element. Your first priority is to get to the boss while his head is down and his mouth is open. Don't try to target, it will probably target one of the skeletons wandering around and turn you and ...ahh it's bad. Besides, the crystal in his mouth is beig enough that if you can't hit it, well, you shouldn't have gotten this far. SO...run up hit his mouth. Right away, he will stomp a foot and these energy waves will come at you. Run away from them and back around in a little circle, so you end up right back at his mouth. Hit him again, run in a circle. Repeat and he'll be dead in no time.

If you MISS...or take too long doing the circle...he will sit up and do his laser attack. DON'T GET HIT. It takes a lot of HP away. Just run around frantically until you hear it stop and charge his mouth again.

Shipwreck Back Room key

Twigsterxd, the "flapping duster" was NOT left out, the back room key is the Flapping Fish in the english version, they can be found in the dungeon or bought from Ruty. They will rot after 2-3 levels in the dungeon unless you have ice blocks.

The best way to get gems is to buy lots of poisin apples,then go fishing in Muska luka when it is dusk.Try to catch as many mardan garadyn I think thats it's name.
Then exchange fish points for them but you need 100 fish points to get 1 gem. Or you could do it the long way and go to the back of caves and get the keys to the backfloors over,over again.Your choice

Flapping Duster

In the Gallery of Time, the Back Floor key is the Flapping Duster.
In the American version of the game you won’t find it.
When they were translating the game it was left out. So don't bother looking for it.

Weak to strong with storng

Alright you gamers who hate weak weapons but have one strong weapon here the hint for you.

1. Select the strongest weapon that you have(200-999).

2. Go find a monster that you can kill one hit that gives you alot of ABs and kill it but once you get done with killing the monster quickly switch your weapons with a weaker weapon before the monster vanishes(ABs are gained at that time).

This works if it does not go faster you can do it. This will work.

The actual best weapon in the game is the Chronicle 2 sword. Then it's the chronicle sword then is the zeus sword. Those are the top 3 swords.

Total Freebies!!!!!

Save up all your money for a gold bullion. But be warned, ONLY DO THIS IN NORUNE VILLAGE!!!!!

Buy a gold bullion from the old gaffer, then go to the Matataki Village ONLY THE MATATAKI VILLAGE!!!!!

Then sell it to the moustache owl in the shop. If you are very, very lucky....sometimes he'll give you more than 2,000 gold for the bullion.

But it might not happen. My cousin tried it and it didn't work. But it might for you! It worked for me.

Good Luck, misty_cat.
