Find the 3 small slimes scattered across the world. Theres one by Trodain, one by the autumn chruch, and one near Empyychu. Now put them all in your monster team.
Sounds stupid right? WRONG! Now enter any rank you can in the monster arena. The 3 slimes will most likely merge into Ultrus the ultra slime.
I beat rank C, B, and A. Now I'm working on S. So when your stuck on a rank, just remember this cheat. Alos, after every moinster area battle, your slimes and Ultrus will be fully healed!
Dude you guys want this sword it's call the dragovian King sword. All you need is a liquid metal sword and the dragovian sword.
Liquid metal sword + dragovian sword= dragovian king sword Attack:137
There IS a level after Rhapthorne, and I will tell you where:
1:Use the Zoom spell to go to Baccarat.
2:Use the Godbird's Soulstone and fly where you found the tree of styx[the Glowing Tree]
3:On top of the mountain, there is a GIANT platform [FLY there] and land.
4:Up there, is a stele with a wierd symbol on it, hit X to activate a cut-scene.
5:Keep following the winding path to a gate.
6:And BOOM! A new area called the Dragovian Sanctuary.
I think that these are most useful items in the game. First Timbrell of Tension. Items you need: sun crown, magic beast hide and tough guy tattoo. You can find magic beast hide in the Trodains castle or sometimes bullfinch can drop it. At Argonia you can buy tough guy tattoo. But the sun crown is the hardest item to make. First you need a skull helm and you can find it in the Dragonvian Trials. And then you need Saints Ashes. You can win this item at the Monster Arena or find it some treasure chests.
Timbrell of Tension = Sun Crown + Magic Beast Hide + Tough guy Tattoo
You can find Sage`s stone at the Black Citadel or make it:
Sage`s stone = Gold nugget + Orichalcum + Yggrassil dew
After Marta is killed you get the ultimate key and you can use this on the locked door in Trodain and in one of the chests is the Rusty old sword and if you kept the Slime crown from the slimes in the well you can mix it with a piece of Orichalcum which you can get in a barrel in troll maze then it should be,
Rusty Old Sword + Orichalcum + Slime Crown = Liquid Metal Sword
And thats Angelo's best weapon (and Jessica's best sword weapon)
In order to gain exp. Quickly, go to black Citidel and fight the metal king slimes (very easy)
and you will gain about 30,000 exp each
First find the Conqueror's axe in the hill next Rydon's Tower (get soulbird to get there) then if you haven't already make the Uber War hammer with a War hammer + a mighty armlet then mix them in with a piece of Orichalcum, and BOOM you get the Megaton hammer A.K.A Yangus' best weapon
once you beat the Lord of the Dragovians you can do the Dragovian trials you can win a Dragovian sword then if you haven't already make the Liquid metal sword (this is also good for killing Liquid metal slimes) by mixing Rusty Old Sword + Orichalcum + Slime Crown in the alchemy pot and after that mix the Liquid metal sword in with the Dragovian sword and BOOM you got the Dragovian king sword A.K.A Hero's best weapon
Hero: Liquid Metal Sword
Yangus: Hell Scythe
Angelo: Uber Falcon Blade
Jessica: Demon Whip
To get Talos he is in Neos you need to complete monster arena 1 rank before rank C if I was you I would call your monster team to get a boost of killing him onto your team!
Needed monsters would help:
For easy experience, try to find metla slimes,(1000 expierience points) liquid metal slimes (10,000 expierience points) and metal king slimes (30,010 experience points!) This is the easiest way to level up at any point in the game. The easiest way to beat them is to use Yangus' Executioner and the Hero's lightning thrust. They both have a 50% change of killing any of those 3 enemies in one hit. Also, the metal king slime gives more experience points than ANY boss in the game, so it's worth the time trying to find and kill them.
I found a good way for starters to beat bosses
As soon as you get jesica give all her skill points to knife skill
She will learn toxic dagger after an amount of skill points
Every time you poison a boss he will lose a lot of hp in 1 turn you can have in down in 3 turns
Hope I helpt the newbies in this game
It's the Shamshir of Light
The Recipie is
Shimmering Dress, Rune Staff, Light Shield.
Start your turn with angelo kabuffing your team and with hero and yangus phsyching up. Then use jessica to increase the hero's and yangus's attack by oomph. Then when hero and yangus reach 50 atack with their best ability or magic or normal atack it doesnt matter.
All right this will be very easy if you have kafrizzle with jessica. All you got to do is psyche up jessica all the way and used Kafrizzle and it will do more than 500 damage!
You would probably Beat it in 4 turns.
In Farebury, there is a well near Valentina's house. Hit X on it to jump down it. Open the chest and you will receive a leather shield.
And in the cave where you fight the giant lobster like creature, there is a slime bouncing in a fork in the path. Talk to him and say no. Walk down the path that hes on and go in the cave. Here you will receice a copper sword for free instead of paying your hard earned money in the weapon shop.
Mix a Sage's Robe + Magic Water + Nook Grass to make a crimson robe it sells for $11,250. It's defence is 82.
Well put your team on fight wisely for Aneglo and Jessica for Yangus use fight wisely, psche self up, show no mercy.
I think to get it you NEED to complete Rank B as I completed it on lvl 34 I was terribly lucky
Ok teleport to princess's minnys castle go to it's beach so when out of castle go to your right and you will see a Gigantes and when your lvl 44 you can release him v him again for him 895 hp
Battle him but do not lose because he is quite hard...
You will need godbirds soulstone for this , go west of the tower that had the baby of emperya captive at night. Theres a patch of land there then us whistle and you will encounter liquid metal slimes about after every 3 times you engage combat.
Well, here are some good combinations to make money.
Medicinal Herb + Medicinal Herb = Strong Medicine (Sold: 88)
Badana + Bandana = Turbant (Sold: 205)
Moonwort Bulb + Moonwort Bulb + Moonwort Bulb = Moon's Mercy (Sold: 308)
Fresh Milk + Rennet Powder + Rock Salt = Soft Cheese (Sold: 600)
I just started today and already found this out. When you start after your done doing everything your suposed to and before going out to get the crystal ball do this. Talk to the girl in up stairs in the inn. Not the girl sitting down but the other girl in the morning. She will give you hints where you can find money and other items. If you collect all of the stuff you get around 300 dollar and tons of stuff. Before you go to the cave I would say you should be level 5 it makes it soooo much easier. Also you can get a free copper sword (its usually 270) by going in the cave and instead of going to where the crystal ball is go straight and open the teasure chest and there it is
If you want to get 2 yggdrasil leaves from the girl at the bazzare in argonia this is what you got to do
Buy 1 then put it in the alchermy pot with holy water
Then buy another from the girl
Then take the 1 you put in the alchomy pot out
Then you will have 2.
Zoom to Argonia when you see the bridge cross it go upwards NOT following the path then you will see him on the otherside so go on the otherside
Monsters to kill it easily:
Well you could just use your team
If you scyche hero all the way up to 100 he'll look like Gotten...off from dbz>
