First of all, thanks for reading my guide. As you read this guide, be aware 
that the information you will find here is NOT completely spoiler free.

I wrote this faq because I noticed that of all the guides available for this 
game, not one of them mentioned how to obtain the hidden items within each 
map. So I thought I would put together my own walkthrough that included 
detailed explanations on how to go about doing just that.


Also have in mind that some sections might have spoilers. 


Again,

|  4. UNDERSTANDING CHARACTER STATS                                 [C0400] |
*===========================================================================*


Ok so some things are pretty obvious but others are not.

STR - the characters strength; increasing this stat increases the characters 
overall power (POW), and decreases move (MOV), "why?" you ask, well cause the 
stronger the character is, the more weight he can carry without affecting how 
far they can move.

STM - the characters stamina; increasing this stat increases the characters 
overall defense (DEF).

INT - the characters intelligence; increasing this stat increases the 
characters overall magic power (MAG).

RES - the characters resistance; increasing this stat increases the characters
 overall magic resist (MGR).

TEC - the characters technique; increasing this stat increases the characters 
overall accuracy (ACC), and it increases the power of team attacks. When 
choosing to start a team attack, you should choose the character with the 
highest TEC.

AGL - the characters agility; increasing this stat increases the characters 
overall evasion (EVA). It also decreases a characters move (MOV); I tested 
this with Linea, she had 500 SP and I spent 200 SP increasing her AGL by 4, 
and when I did that, her MOV dropped by 1.

LCK - the characters luck; increasing this stat increases the characters 
overall accuracy (ACC) and evasion (EVA).

WGT - the characters weight; increasing this through equipment, increases the 
characters overall move (MOV)(which you donít want), however, decreasing it 
not only decreases move (MOV), but also increases battle speed which is not 
measurable, but noticeable. Keep in mind however that some characters will be 
innately faster than others despite potentially having higher Weight.

CST - the weapons cost value; this represents the amount of AP required to 
attack with your weapon.

CRT - the weapons critical value; this represents the % chance of causing a 
critical hit.

*MEV - the characters magic evade; this stat is not measurable in the game, 
but will appear on certain items (ex Charm). Normally magic evade would 
represent the ability of a character to evade a magic attack, however, other 
than status spells, I have not seen a single magic attack miss in this game.

*===========================================================================*


This section is about the 12 Story characters obtained throughout the game. 
For those characters known as "secret" characters I describe what I did in 
order to obtain them. I also want to mention that despite what has been said 
about the voice acting in this game, I personally thought it was excellent.

Spero is my *cough* I mean THE hero of our little adventure. He duel wields 
Katanaís, which is awesome, his stats are balanced, however, you may find it 
difficult early on to keep his Move low enough because of the fact that he 
carries 2 weapons as opposed to every other characters 1. Feel free to remove 
his armor and equip him instead with the most powerful hat you can. Actually 
I recommend this for all characters, as my method is "the best defense is a 
strong offense". So if you can move Spero into place and attack to kill, you 
wonít be missing the extra defense.

Linea is our beautiful Shaman Princess. Her attack range is huge and you can 
attack from various heights with her. Placing her on cliffs or bridges and 
having her snipe the enemies as they come towards you is an awesome battle 
strategy, and one that is used throughout my guide. She is invaluable as an 
ally and once you get her, youíll always have her in your top 6. Plain and 
simple, you NEED her, she makes battle A LOT easier. The only thing that is 
somewhat disappointing is her STR growth (her lowest stat), but being a ranged
 attacker it only makes sense that her STR isnít TOO high, otherwise the game 
would be completely broken by her.

Avis, our handsome Prince of Fortuna. I didnít use Avis very much, but when I 
did he seemed to hold his own in battle. His stats are balanced with STR and 
HP being his best, and his sprite I found to be pretty awesome. Heís a sword 
user and will obviously be replaced with Viser once you get him, so I didnít 
see much long range potential in using him, since Viserís stats are so much 
better.

Lumena is our beautiful priestess of the Aeque. Sheís another one of those 
characters that is acquired so late that you are pretty much set in who you 
want as a part of your 6 member team. Not to mention she has Prier as her 
counterpart, and Prier, has arguably the most useful skill in the game, bless.
 So again I didnít use her much. Prier has better stats especially HP and STM.
 Mages lose their effectiveness late game as skills start to do less and less 
damage, so if you are going to pick 1 spell caster, let it be Prier for her 
Bless skill.

Grey, the loyal friend of Spero. Grey is and awesome character, being a lance 
user he can attack from 2 squares away, can attack 2 characters at the same 
time, and can attack a single character from a height of 4, so basically you 
can stand above them, and attack them while they just wander back and forth. 
The only thing that sucks about him killing 2 enemies at the same time, is 
that you only get EXP for one, yup I tested it. One of his best features 
however, is his speed/agility, matched only by Tia and Jade. During the 
latter parts of the game when his strength has increased enough to reduce his 
MOV stat to the minimum (5), you can actually move right up to an enemy, end 
your turn, and still get a turn BEFORE that enemy, thus allowing you to make 
full use of your AP. The stat that actually makes this possible is the 
invisible stat SPEED, which increases by lowering your total weight.

Adara, the sweetheart of our story. Early on in the game she is extremely 
useful as a fighter, healer, magician. Once she gets shock blast, sheíll be 
taking off chunks of HP from physical fighters, and in the story battles, 
Golems, who are weak to magic. However, late game when catacomb floors become 
more and more common in the players journey, she starts to lose her 
effectiveness. Through no fault of her own since magic is just not as 
effective a physical attacks in this game. And without a method to increase 
the MAG stat, the damage she ends up dealing to the catacomb enemies wont 
even cut their HP in half. So in my opinion sheís just not as effective as 
say Gallant, Tia, Viser, etc. Basically, using 100 AP, if you canít kill a 
single enemy at the same level, then you need to be replaced. As much as I 
loved her, I just didnít find a permanent spot for her in my party of 6.

Ok, now we are talking sheer POWER. Brahms, I mean, Gallant is this storyís 
powerhouse. People complain about his speed, and although he is one of the 
slower characters, heís by no means slow. His strength is the highest of all 
characters, and as a result, his MOV will be low. If you are wondering what 
you should do about his somewhat slow speed, then remove his armor completely 
and equip him with a hat, not helmet. His naturally high STM and HP will keep 
him safe. Now, with the low weight, you wont have any trouble with his speed. 
Move him up to an enemy, end turn, and heíll have another turn before the 
enemy, so now you can use both your 38 cost axe attacks to kill the enemy.

The adorable Prier. Every girl wants a little sister, and if I had one it 
would be Prier. Not only does she learn some very effective spells, but her 
stats are pretty darn good for a mage, just look at that HP. For the most 
part, I was equipping her with the "purify" zone skill, but I later taught 
her the "attack cost+" zone skill, and once you are able to fuse a rose ring, 
give that to her. Now with the enemy only being ablt to attack her once 
because of her zone skill, and the counter+30% from the rose ring, Prier will 
barely be touched. The counter +30% is effective on her because a countered 
attack does less damage then an un-countered attack, since the attack 
animation has been interrupted. However, her main selling point is her unique 
BLESS spell, which raised 5 characters POW and ACC by 20%, so ya, youíll 
never sit her out of the top 6.

Iíve read that a lot of people donít like Tia, but I personally loved her. 
Iíve always found it cute when anime characters have verbal tics like Ayu 
Tsukimiya from Kanon. Anyways, Tia isnít just cute, sheís fierce, and if 
Prier is my adorable little sister, then Tia is my adorable little sisters 
pet. Her strength is up there with Speroís and Greyís, and she is one of the 
fastest characters in the game. Sheís also very durable with very good STM 
and high HP. With her incredible move and ability to attack 3 times, she 
becomes more and more useful late game, especially in the catacombs.

How to Recuit:

1) Chapter 2 - Barrage sewers C0813 - Keep Tia alive
2) Chapter 3 - Turris - the gate of eternity C0823 - Donít harm Tia
3) Chapter 3 - Turris - the gate of eternity round 2 C0824 - Keep Tia alive
4) Read all 12 letters

If youíve completed the above, then in chapter 4 after the battle at Porta 
C0829, head back to Aphan and you should get a scene. Choose to invite her 
along.

*NOTE: if you followed this and didnít get the scene, try continuing the 
story, she may join after the events at Silva.

Jade is our sneaky little bandit, but heís cool, and his voice actor does a 
great job with him. Jadeís strongest feature is his speed and his high 
critical rate, youíre almost always going to land one if heís starting from a 
stand-still (3 hits). However, believe it or not, at level 40, my Prier had 
higher STR then Jade, so in the end if you plan on using Jade, youíre really 
going to need to pray that he does critical at least once, or else he wonít 
be able to kill the stronger enemies in the catacombs. For this reason, I 
stopped using Jade.

How to recruit:

**Recruiting Jade: Different quests appear depending on WHEN you recruit 
Jade.

EARLY - Chapter 4 Recruiting Requirements:
Chapter 2 - Hydor C0810 - Overkill Jade
Chapter 2 - Cathedral 3rd Floor C0816 - Overkill Jade

Challenge from Jade

LATE - Chapter 5 Recruiting Requirements:
Chapter 2 - Hydor C0810 - Missed overkilling Jade
Chapter 2 - Cathedral 3rd Floor C0816 - Overkill Jade
Chapter 3 - Tesca C0820 - Overkill Jade (Required for Viser, not sure if itís

Viser, heís a great character but from my own personal experience, heís a 
*little* overrated. His stats are excellent, just like Speroís. The only 
difference that makes him unique, is his high INT and MP, which frankly I 
never cared for since I used him as a physical attacker. For the amount of 
difficulty required in recruiting him, in the end, heís just another strong 
character. If you noticed my partyís stats, youíll see that I have 7 
characters at level 99, thatís because I flip-flopped Viser, Tia, Gallant, 
and Grey. The only 3 that were always out there were Spero, Linea and Prier. 
So is Viser awesome, yes, can you finish all 100 floors of the catacombs 
without him, yes, is he recruited so late that it may turn people away from 
using him, definitely.

How to Recruit:

Chapter 1:

- Saxum C0804 - Overkill Viper
- Montano C0806 - Overkill Viper

Chapter 2:

- Hydor C0810 - Kill ALL of Jadeís soldiers. When there are 5 enemies + Jade 
left, you have to target and kill the remaining 5 enemies with a single spell 
(Lineaís Cluster Ray is recommended). 
- Cathedral 2F - Overkill Viser.
- Cathedral 3rd Floor C0816 - Overkill Jade

Chapter 3:

- Taberna C0817 - Overkill Echidna (may not be required, but this is how I 
did it).
- Tesca C0820 - Overkill Jade

Chapter 4:

- Gula C0834 - Overkill Croire
- Resistance Base C0840 - Overkill Croire
- Floating Bridge C0842 - Overkill Nebula
- Lacuna Shrine C0844 - Overkill either Nebula OR Lumena, both are NOT 
required.

Ok personally, I thought Echidnaís voice acting was one of the best as it fit 
her personality perfectly, the only thing I didnít like about her was that 
she always flirted with my Spero. Anyways, sheís a pretty awesome fighter, 
with very good stats and the ONLY reason I chose to not use her to her 
fullest, was for a very picky reason on my part, and that is....her attack 
animation has a lag that makes you wait a second or 2 for the enemy to fall 
before showing the EXP and SP gained. Ya, itís nothing big, but it annoyed 
me. She has great movement though, so youíll find her easy and effective in 
battle.

How to Recruit:

Chapter 3 - Taberna C0817 - *Prior to the battle youíll be given a choice:
Choose - "Youíre about to find out!" -> Echidna will replace 1 Swordmaster in 
battle, then overkill Echidna.

Chapter 5 - Run around the map until you are in the month of December, 
"The Swordsmith" quest will show up. Accept the quest and run around again 
until January, then DURING the month of January head for Shanty Town. Once 
thatís done "Earthquake?" quest will show up, complete it, (equip your new 
weapon just incase) THEN go an fight Castle Grounds C0846, she will join you 
after the battle.

*===========================================================================*
|  6. NOTES, HINTS, TIPS, AND GENERAL INFO                          [C0600] |
*===========================================================================*



*NOTE 1: 

I tried to attempt all of quests as soon as they became available. I saw a 
video on youtube that showed the "landslide" quest for a Fee of 600 and a 
Reward of 1500, Spero was at Level 12 and he failed the quest. Similarly with 
"Arm Wrestling", "Writer Wanted", "Field Work", and "Lost Cat", they were all 
higher fees and higher rewards. So Iím assuming that every time you fail the 
quest, the higher the fees and rewards become, and the higher the Stat 
Requirement becomes when that quest returns. Itís also very probable that the 
stat requirements for these kinds of quests are dependent on the level at 
which Spero is at when the quest appears/reappears. 

Also these quests, when failed, WILL reappear (as the Guild Master indicates 
at the beginning of the game). 

Also some quests (Locked safe for example), will disappear at the start of 
chapter 5, if you donít complete it.

*NOTE 2: 

The lottery, from what I can tell, is dependent on Speroís level:

Registration cost will increase by 200 every 5 levels, and will continue to 
do so even after lottery (11th), despite the prizes not changing at that 
point.

Level 1-5   -> Lottery (1st)
Level 6-10  -> Lottery (2nd)
Level 11-15 -> Lottery (3rd)
Level 16-20 -> Lottery (4th)
Level 21-25 -> Lottery (5th)
Level 26-30 -> Lottery (6th)
Level 31-35 -> Lottery (7th)
Level 36-40 -> Lottery (8th)
Level 41-45 -> Lottery (9th)
Level 46-50 -> Lottery (10th)
Level 51-99 -> Lottery (11th)

However, how often a lottery turns up within a certain level range will 
depend on how much time you spend in that level range. Also they appear 
monthly, but simply walking around the world map didnít trigger them for me, 
despite passing 1-2 months at a time. So to trigger a lottery, a month must 
have past from the last lottery, and you have to activate one of the 
following:

1) Story Battle
2) Completing a Quest
3) Catacomb Floor (this one doesnít always work, if youíve done 1 or 2 and 
still didnít trigger the lottery, then completing a catacomb floor may do it).

There are 5 balls and 4 prizes. Gold is Special Prize, White is Grand prize, 
Blue is 2nd prize, Green is 3rd prize, and Red is nothing. The REGISTRATION 
COST will determine which set of items can be won. The 4th and 5th lotteries 
have a glitch, the 3rd prize is listed in the game as a Holy Breath (Rank 13),
 when in fact you are actually getting a Potion. 

*NOTE 3: 

Accessories with stat % boosts do not stack. Example: Blue Ribbon has 
EVA + 20%, and Salamander Tail has EVA + 10%, by equipping both, only the 20% 
comes into effect (overwriting the lower stat boost)

*Note 4: 

Regarding the Support Skill "Get.... ": You donít automatically get the 
enemyís things when you defeat them regularly. So Iím assuming this support 
skill simply increases the chance of obtaining the enemyís things when 
defeated with a team attack. So in regards to all the "Get" Skills, after 
reading Gundam4Funís Fusion faq, he mentions them in NOTE #1 of his faq:

"The best way to take advantage of the high level catacombs is to give your 
characters the Rich Wallet (doubles the bonus [cash and items] for killing an 
enemy) and give to each character one of the following items: Get Item, Get 
Armor, Get Weapon, Get Accessory, Get SS and Get AS and then 
perform a six character combo that kills the enemy."

So by reading this, Iím assuming that simply equipping these "get" skills and 
killing the enemy, wonít guarantee you an item, instead by team attacking 
with these skills equipped, your chances of obtaining the items increases 
significantly. 
***** I tested this on floor 50 of the catacombs, in which all my characters 
had 1 Get Skill equipped. I finished the floor with NO team attacks and still 
got 7-8 items, notably a Stone Alchemy which I specifically went after with 
Tia who was equipped with Get AS. When doing the floor again and using team 
attacks, I got 15+ items. So Team attacks definitely increase the amount of 
items received from enemies when using Get Skills, but my previous assumption 
may be wrong, I now believe that you CAN get the enemies items by killing 
them regularly.

I was confused about a few things: 
1) Does "Get Item" randomly get anything in the item slot? (Which technically 
can be an accessory). 
2) Does "Get Armor" only get body wear, or body AND headwear? So after 
reading around Iíve come to some conclusions:

Weapons - Get Weapon Skill will help you obtain these.
Armor - Get Armor Skill will help you obtain these.
Headgear - Get Armor Skill will help you obtain these.
Item - Since you can equip items AND accessories in these slots, Get 
Accessory Skill will help you obtain the accessories, and Get Item Skill will 
help you obtain the items.
Action Skills - Get AS Skill will help you get these.
Support Skills - Get SS Skill will help you get these.

*Note 5: 

Support Skills DONT STACK with accessories. Example: Defense +20% support 
skill equipped and the Sun Band with Defense +10%; The support skill will 
overwrite the Defense+10% on the Sun Band (because 20% is larger then 10%), 
leaving you with only a 20% defense increase. 

*Note 6: 

Mock Battles: These are determined by Speroís level. 
Level 1-10  -> Mock Battle (1st) Enemy Level 6
Level 11-20 -> Mock Battle (2nd) Enemy Level 16
Level 21-30 -> Mock Battle (3rd) Enemy Level 26
Level 31-40 -> Mock Battle (4th) Enemy Level 36
Level 41-50 -> Mock Battle (5th) Enemy Level 46
Level 51-60 -> Mock Battle (6th) Enemy Level 46
Level 61-70 -> Mock Battle (7th) Enemy Level 46

From level 41 onwards, the enemy level remains at 46 but for every 10 levels 
the reward increases by 1000.

*Note 7: 

Do not accept the Aspiring Fusionist Quests until you are ready to give the 
items that are required. If you accept the quest, the countdown of days will 
begin and leave you with only 30 days to succeed in the quest. I accidently 
accepted the Aspiring Fusionist 4 quest and saved, and I didnít have nearly 
the amount of money/levels/item/ required for the task, so I had to level up 
in the catacombs (each floor costing me 1 day) and was able to come up with 
the emerald with 2 days to spare.

*NOTE 8: 

You can have multiple negative status effects, but only 1 positive status 
effect. Example Prierís Bless (POW and ACC) gives the user a "B" symbol in 
their status window; if you cast "Physical Shield" with Adara, youíll get an 
"M" symbol, and the "B" symbol with disappear.
*Side Note: 
- Adara's Physical Shield increases 1 members EVA by 20%
- Linea's Granite Mail increases 1 members DEF by 20%

*NOTE 9a: 

Money Making - the best way to make money (without the chapter 5 glitch) is 
to equip Rich wallets (1 per character), and kill enemies with a 6 person 
combo. Yes a 6 person combo, donít do what I did and think that the more team 
attacks you do with rich wallets equipped, the more money youíll get. The 
rich wallet bonus is not a per enemy thing, itís a per character thing. So 
killing an enemy will reward you with money in the following order: 
6 person>5 person>4 person>3 person>2 person.

*NOTE 9b: 

Chapter 5 Money Glitch: I tested this and it worked on the SECOND try. The 
first attempt, I left myself with approx. 20,000 since I thought the glitch 
happened when you were under 60000 (ie couldnít purchase his item). However, 
this is not the case. When I found him, the first dialogue that popped up was 
him saying "you donít have enough money, come back later" or something like 
that, and the quest ended. So I reset and tried again, this time leaving 
myself with as close to 60,000 as I could (59,680), without actually having 
60,000. I accepted the quest, and when I found him, I was allowed to purchase 
the item normally from him. Then when I checked my money, it was maxed out.

*NOTE 10: 

Before the Resistance Camp battle in chapter 4 (C0840) try to make yourself 
the Zero Gravity and teach someone the Hermes Wing skill, there is an area at 
the very top of the map (Ht. 30) thatís hiding a pair of Goddess Earrings.

*NOTE 11: 

Testing JUMP: Ok so the one thing in this game that I donít understand is 
JUMP. The stat is invisible, but Iíve noticed a few things:
1) With no JUMP + X equipped, you can only jump a height of 2 (example: 20-22)
and cannot jump across gaps.
2) With JUMP + 1 equipped, you can jump a height of 4 (example: 20-24), and 
can jump across gaps.
3) With JUMP + 2 equipped, you can jump a height of 4. I assumed that a 
height of 6 would be possible with the JUMP + 2, but I tested it on floor 10 
of the Catacombs, and itís not possible. In order to jump from the 24 height 
ledge to the ledge that is of height 30, Grey, with JUMP + 2 equipped, needs 
to jump onto the ledge beside it, which has a height of 28, and then jump 
from the 28 to the 30, effectively wasting some AP cause of the extra 
movement. 
4) With JUMP + 2 you can jump across a gap to a ledge that is a height of 2 
MORE than the ledge you start on. Ex Start on 20 Ht and jump over a single 
gap to a 22Ht.

Throughout the game I have rarely found areas where the jump + 2 was 
necessary, catacomb floors ending with a 0 were the only ones I consistently 
found a use for the jump + 2.

*NOTE 12: 

Regarding the Assistant Wanted Quest. On my first playthrough, the first time 
it appeared I was level 19 and the registration cost/reward was 800/2000. On 
my second playthrough, the first time it appeared I was level 21, and the 
registration cost/reward was 1000/2500. So Iím assuming the requirement for 
this quest are based on the level at which you are at when it appears, and as 
a result, would be very difficult to measure. Being at level 19 I succeeded 
the first time through, and Iím assuming the requirements changed at level 20 
along with the prices. Despite the fact that it mentions MGR as the 
requirement itís actually RES. 

First Playthrough:
Level 19 - 67 RES (89 MGR) = succeeded
Second Playthrough
Level 21 - 74 RES, (92 MGR) = Failed
Level 21 - 74 RES, (125 MGR through equipment) = Failed
Level 21 - 75 RES (Spending SP to increase RES by 1), (93 MGR) = Failed
Level 21 - 76 RES (Spending SP to increase RES by 2), (94 MGR) = Failed
Level 21 - 77 RES (Spending SP to increase RES by 3), (95 MGR) = Failed
Level 21 - 78 RES (Spending SP to increase RES by 4), (96 MGR) = Failed
Level 21 - 79 RES (Spending SP to increase RES by 5), (97 MGR) = Succeeded!!

So itís clearly RES, and; 
if the cost/reward is 800/2000, then 67 RES works
if the cost/reward is 1000/2500, then 79 RES works

*NOTE 13: 

The game clock in this game stops at 99:59?? Seriously how difficult is it to 
make the clock exceed that amount? Not a big deal but seeing as how I use 2 
save files in all my games (for safety precautions) itís extremely annoying 
now that both files are at 99:59 and I have no way of determining which one 
is the later play versus the earlier play without loading both.

*NOTE 13b:

Once I reached floor 65 of the catacombs the enemy MAGES (Sages and High 
Priests) started to have severe LAGS prior to their turns, this only got 
worse the higher I went up in the catacombs. So if this happens in your game, 
just know that you are not alone, as my game disc is brand new.

*NOTE 14:

Quest that did not show up during this (my 2nd) playthrough.
1) Treasure Vault - this showed up in my first playthrough and I believe it 
has something to do with the locked safe quest. In my first playthrough I 
skipped the locked safe quest, and this quest eventually showed up. I believe 
itís a REMINDER of sorts, telling you about a treasure vault, that is actually
 in fact the locked safe. So if Iím not mistaken, the fact that I completed 
the locked safe quest in this playthrough resulted in the Treasure Vault quest
 never appearing.
2) Exploration - this quest did not show up during this playthrough because I 
satisfied the EARLY recruiting requirements for Jade.
3) Revive the World - again I believe this has something to do with me 
satisfying Jadeís EARLY recruitment requirements in this (my 2nd) playthrough.
 This quest appeared after Gula in my first playthrough, but this time 
(my 2nd), Gold Transport and Challenge from Jade appeared instead, because I 
overkilled him at Hydor. Since the reward for "Revive the World" is an eye of 
foresight, Iím assuming itís meant to help the player level up for future 
battles. Since the player wasnít able to overkill Jade and thus recruit him 
earlier, I guess this quest is meant as "help".
4) Save the Spirits - once again, this would appear in chapter 2 AFTER the 
battle at Hydor, and thus you would be required to NOT overkill jade in that 
battle.

*NOTE 15:

Throughout the walkthrough I mention at times, "creeping up" to an enemy. 
Early in the game this isnít AS effective, but still smart. Near the end of 
the game you will be able to creep up to an enemy and end your turn while 
STILL having a turn before the enemy (this is entirely dependent on your 
speed which is directly affected by your Weight). In the final battles I 
refer to this as the "Creep up and end turn Method".

*NOTE 16:

Suspend Data requires 105 KB of space, more than a regular save file.

*NOTE 17:

ASAP - for those readers who are not familiar with this term, it means "As 
Soon As Possible".

ENEMIES: This will give information on the type of enemy (and their class), 
the enemyís level, and how many enemies of each class there are in the 
mission.

CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: The necessary conditions in order to complete the 
mission successfully. This can be viewed by pressing the start button while 
the cursor is NOT hovering over a character.

HIDDEN ITEMS: The items that were found hidden on the map in the given 
mission.

POST BATTLE ITEMS: Some items are given after battle that MAY actually be 
predetermined, like an item dropped by a boss. Iím not 100% sure if they are 
always given, but they have been on both my playthroughs.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS (if applicable): Specific conditions required in order to 
recruit certain characters. Note: OVERKILL means to take the boss down to 
0 HP. Some missions will end if the bosses HP reaches a certain number, and 
as a result, you wonít succeed in recruiting future characters; so overkills 
are a must.

*Regarding SPECIAL CONDITIONS - I will be indicating the conditions that I 
met during my first time through the game. I was able to recruit all secret 
characters by meeting these conditions, however I have read on the forums 
that some people couldnít recruit certain characters even though they 
followed the same directions I did, also Iíve read that not all the things I 
did were actually required, well better safe than sorry. Nevertheless, what 
Iíll be writing in this section is what worked for me.

DIRECTION: Very important; this will be the basis for the given directions of 
the hidden items. North, East, South, West, will be interchangeable with Up, 
Right, Down, Left respectively.

BATTLE: Strategy to succeed in the battle itself.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS: Detailed descriptions on how to find the hidden items 
on the map.

Let the bridge be a north/south indicator, and weíll let Speroís starting 
location be the south side.

BATTLE:
This battle is against 3 Level 1 Soldiers. Viser can handle this battle all 
by himself since he outlevels them 5 to 1. Keep Spero safe, if you want, have 
Viser lower the enemyís HP and have Spero finish them off for the EXP, or 
have Spero start a team attack to get the EXP. 

**Regarding team attacks: each character has a unique "RANGE" in which they 
can team attack from, this range is also the same range that comes into 
effect when equipping Zone Skills. To check this range, place the cursor over 
your character and press circle. The area of yellow squares is the range Iím 
talking about. So as long as the enemy is inside that range, you can join in 
on the team attack.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, head onto the bridge. Notice the tunnel under the 
bridge where the water is passing through; 2 squares south of the "start" of 
the tunnels opening there is an >OAK SHOES< hiding there (note: we are still 
on top of the bridge). From where you start, send Spero down to the right, 
across the river is a stone house with 3 pillars, the 3rd pillar is hiding a 
>VIGOR SEED<. Now head up the stair next to the house and head around to the 
back of the house, underneath the middle window is hiding an >AMULET<.

Ok, so I recommend buying Spero 2 Mumeiís and a Pointed Hat. Donít worry 
about the money weíll be leveling in the Catacombs soon. Also, unequip 
Speroís 2 Vigor Seeds, since we have Mercator as our healer, we wonít need 
those. Equip Spero with the Oak Shoes you found, and Mercator with the Amulet 
and spare Cap. Now when youíre ready, enter Eumaneia.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Lv.1 Spirits x6
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Spirits
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vigor Seed x22, Herb x8, Vigor Nut x4
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTION: 
Spero starts in southeast corner of map, the direction he faces at the start 
will be North.

BATTLE:
Once you start attacking, youíre friends will show up. After you kill the 
initial 3 enemies, the other 3 will start coming towards you. If you upgraded 
Speroís weapons he can kill one of the spirits in 2 attacks. Other than that, 
keep Mercator around in case you need to heal. Also note that Grey (an all 
spearmen) can attack from 2 spaces away, and as a result, can attack 2 
enemies at the same time. Be careful though, cause if one of your party 
members are in the path of his attack, they will get hit. Spero, Grey and 
Adara can also team attack, so use that if you want to do some major damage.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where Spero starts, youíll see a tree, right next to it on the east side 
hides an >HERB<. At the northwest side of the map, you see another tree, 
right next to it on its west side is hiding a >VIGOR NUT<. 

*Ok, there are a lot of items on the upper level of the map, I go into detail,
 but really, you can just get as many as you want, Iíd get them all cause 
theyíre so close to each other and they can be used in fusions.

Left of where you start, on the upper level youíll see 2 bushes. One further 
left, and one on the high edge of the cliff. Letís start with the one further 
left. The 4 squares surrounding that bush all have >HERBS<. 1 square east of 
that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 1 square east and 1 square north of that bush 
hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 1 square north of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 
Northwest of that bush hides an >HERB<. 

Onto the next bush at the very top of the cliff; 1 square south and 1 square 
west of that bush is hiding a >VIGOR SEED<. 1 square west of that bush is 
hiding a >VIGOR NUT<, 1 square south of that bush is hiding a >VIGOR SEED<, 
2 squares south of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<, 3 Squares south of that 
bush hides an >HERB<. 3 squares west and 1 square south of that bush hides a 
>VIGOR SEED<. 2 squares south and 1 square east of that bush hides a >VIGOR 
SEED<. 3 squares south and 1 square east of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 
North of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 4 squares south of that bush hides a 
>VIGOR SEED<. 4 squares south and 1 square west hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 2 
squares north of that bush hides a >VIGOR NUT<. 3 squares south and 1 square 
west of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 2 squares north and 1 square west of 
that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 3 squares west of that bush hides an >HERB<. 
1 square west and 2 squares south hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 1 square north and 1 
square west of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 2 squares west of that bush 
hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 1 square north and 2 squares west hides a >VIGOR NUT<. 
2 squares west and 3 squares south of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 2 
squares west and 2 squares south hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 2 squares west 1 
square south of that bush hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 3 squares west and 3 squares 
south hides a >VIGOR SEED<. 3 squares west and 1 square south of that bush 
hides a >VIGOR SEED<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Wow, that was tiring, anyways, after the battle you get 2 new characters 
Grey (Spearman) and Adara (Alchemist).

Back to the world map, thereís a new location available, but before that, buy 
some equipment for your new characters. I bought a Javelin for Grey, Copper 
for Adara and a Stone Rod for Mercator. You may as well make a fusion too. I 
made: Lead + Vigor Nut = Feline Teardrop, give it to Spero, the extra 10 EVA 
will be nice. 

!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

**Catacombs of Trial**
The Catacombs is the place to do your leveling. You will always be 
outnumbered on each floor, and at times, your starting placement can be a 
hindrance. Personally I try to eliminate enemy archers and healers first, and 
try to stay away from the axe wielders, as they pack quite a punch. I wonít 
be walking you through the Catacombs, since itís up to the player how much 
they want to exploit this dungeon. However, I will mention WHEN I recommend 
entering for leveling purposes and the level at which I stopped at.

Ok so get Spero to level 3

############################## END OF QUESTS ################################



Ok now that the quests are done and we have a new character, its back to the 
Catacombs. Why? Well because weíre fighting a boss next, and we are going to 
need an Overkill.

Instead of buying a Rivet Knuckle for Cody, buy a pointed hat instead, and do 
the following fusion: Pointed Hat + Vigor Nut = Iron Fang, a rank 3 glove. 
Then buy another pointed hat and give it to Cody.


!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

Get your characters to level 5-6. Iíll always recommend 2 levels above bosses 
you need to overkill. I highly doubt itís possible to overkill any "special 
condition" boss in this game unless youíre higher level than them. As for 
other bosses that are not "special condition" bosses, if you want to keep it 
challenging then either the same level or 1 above should suffice. Anything 
lower and youíll most likely be killed.  Also the higher level you are, the 
easier it will be to traverse the map for the hidden items.

Every time you come back from the catacombs, 1 day will have passed. I tend 
to make it a habit to check the guild for more quests frequently.

############################## END OF QUESTS ################################


During your time in the catacombs, you will have accumulated quite a bit of 
money, and maybe even some items. Before taking on the boss, make some 
fusions, this is what I made:

Cloth + Vigor Nut = Salamander Tail (Adara)
Whistle + Dagger = Bronze (Adara)
Badge of Courage + Bokutoh = Iron Rod (Mercator)
Cap + Whistle = Halberd (Grey)
Javelin + Whistle = Bravery Scroll (ALL)
Leather Mail + Living Pure = Rakuyo (Spero)
-> (Leather Mail = Stone Rod + Cap)
-> (Living Pure = Spear + Badge of Courage)

Also teach all your characters Anti-Fear with those Scrolls. Donít forget to 
teach them all the Combo Slash support skill, that way we can team attack 
with all 5 to overkill the boss.

**Before you start, note that there will be 2 consecutive battles here, so 
you wonít have a chance to save in between, make sure youíre prepared.

ENEMIES:  BOSS - VIPER Lv.4 Axeman
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Viper
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: In order to recruit secret character VISER you must 
overkill Viper!! I had trouble with my characters at level 5, so you may want 
to level to 6 in order to do 450HP worth of damage on the team attack. Make 
sure the character with the highest tech, starts the team attack.
HIDDEN ITEMS: Charm
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTION:
Spero starts in the south portion of the map, facing east.

BATTLE:
This is your first boss battle, and your first SPECIAL CONDITION. You need to 
overkill Viper in this battle if you want to recruit a secret character later 
in the game. If you taught your party the Anti-Fear skill and youíre at the 
very least level 5, then you shouldnít have trouble. After Viperís first move,
 a girl will join you in battle. Keep her at a safe distance and have her use 
her special skill. Viperís axe skill is pretty deadly and if heís right next 
to you he can unleash it and follow up with a regular attack. So to be safe, 
always keep 1 square in between you and VIPER. The mission will end when you 
get Viper to 450HP, so in order to get the overkill, get him to as close to 
450 as you can, then unleash a 5 person team attack. Remember you party 
members have to be in attack range, (press circle over the character and 
check the yellow squares).

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
At the north end of the map, where the thicker smoke stack is, you can find a 
>CHARM< right next to it on the east side.

Ok time to head for Montano. Since you have more than 6 characters, you can 
finally fill out your squad in battles, 6 is the max you can dispatch in this 
game. So if you feel like leveling anyone up, feel free to use the catacombs. 
I however chose not to until after the next battle.

ENEMIES: BOSS - MYSTERIOUS GIRL Level 4 Forester, Lv.4 Elementor x3, 
Lv.4 Soul x2, Lv.3 Spearman x1, Lv.4 Swordsman x1
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat the Mysterious Girl
HIDDEN ITEMS: Herb, Amulet
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTION: 
You begin in the southeast corner of the map, the mysterious girl is high on 
the cliff north of you.

BATTLE: 
The enemies will come at you in waves, dispatch the first group near the 
start. The 2nd group on the northwest side will come down to greet you. Be 
careful climbing up the slope, because the incline will cause the enemies 
above to do slightly more damage. One strategy I use is to move 1 space at a 
time, checking the turn order. If you characterís turn is constantly coming 
before the enemy, then keep doing this to creep up on them, once that single 
space movement no longer leaves you moving BEFORE the enemy then make a 
decision on an attack. 

Note that archers cannot hit people who are directly in front of them. So 
dashing right up to her will cause her to have to either attack a different 
person, or move first then attack you. Iím not sure if the battle ends when 
she reaches low HP, because both times I played this game I overkilled her, 
but itís not necessary.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS: 
You begin right next to a tree, the east square next to that tree hides an 
>HERB<. On the northwest side of the map, there will be a tree on the slanted 
hill, north of that tree hides an >AMULET<.

!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!


Ok so head to the catacombs, we want to get our party to level 8 for the next 
boss.

Some fusions I made to help out for the catacombs and the next boss battle:

Whistle + Short Sword = Composite Bow (Orius)
Vigor Nut + Cloth = Salamander Tail (Orius)
Mumei + Power Mittens = Rich Wallet (Grey)
Charm + Badge of Courage = Feline Teardrop (Orius)
Vigor Nut + Cloth = Salamander Tail (Spero)

Also donít forget to teach Orius (or whichever character you chose as your 
6th) some support skills, notably, combo slash so we can get a 6 person team 
attack against the next boss.

After I was done leveling, I had enough SP to teach Spero the EVA Up Zone 
Skill, since his Zone Effect Area is pretty big, this will help a lot 
defensively. I also taught Adara the End Turn Zone Skill.

Once youíre ready, head back to Montano.

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: BOSS - VIPER Level 6 Axeman (920 HP), Lv.4 Soldier x3, 
Lv.4 Cleric x1, Lv.4 Alchemist x1, Lv.4 Archer x1, Level 5 Fighter x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Viper.
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: In order to recruit VISER you must overkill VIPER!!
HIDDEN ITEMS: Badge of Courage x2
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTION: 
You start at the top of the cliff, this will be the northeast side of the 
map, and Spero is facing west to start.

BATTLE: 
Fight off the first 3 enemies, making sure to take down their HP so that the 
cleric doesnít heal them back to full. Then head down the mountain. The 
archer at the bottom will start to snipe at you, but since youíre at a higher 
elevation, the damage wonít be high. Once you defeat the 3 at the bottom, 
creep up to the boss and try to lure his soldiers away from him. Iíve never 
succeeded at this, but apparently it is possible. If youíre at level 8 like I 
suggested, their damage will be negligible anyways. 

Once you start fighting Viper, be careful of his Fear Zone Skill. Most, if 
not all of your characters should have protection against this. However, if 
you can surround him, those characters wonít be affected. This may be 
dangerous depending on your level. He retreats at 450 HP, so start a team 
attack at about 475-480 to be safe.


HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS: 
From where you start, thereís 2 paths you can take down the mountain, thereís 
the slope north of you, and what looks like rock steps south of you, send one 
character down the rock steps. When you get to the rock step at the bottom 
(24&25 Ht), the square next to the cliff side (24 Ht) is hiding a >BADGE OF 
COURAGE<. The tree east of where Viper starts is hiding a >BADGE OF COURAGE< 
on the east side.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



There will be quite a few scenes afterwards, but youíll be allowed to save 3 
times during them.

After theyíre done, Linea will join us, she is an awesome character and you 
should definitely use her all the time. Also the shops have been upgraded.


Alright itís shop time!!

Alright, now that the quests are done, we can head to the next area. Weíll 
level up after the next area.




*===========================================================================*

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 7 Experimental Model (Golem: Alpha)
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat the Golem.
HIDDEN ITEMS: *Golden Apple, Badge of Courage x3
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS: 
We start at the southwest corner of the map, Avis and the Golem are on the 
northeast corner.

BATTLE:
You donít have to keep Avis alive, but itís not hard to. I sent him north, 
then west, and then south, to eventually meet up with the party I sent across 
the river. Remember what the quest you did earlier mentioned? Golemís are 
weak to magic, so cast Adaraís Shock Blast, and clean up with the physical 
attacks.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS: 
Where Avis starts, there is a log, the log consists of 2 squares, the north 
square is hiding a >BADGE OF COURAGE<. In the northwest part of the map, 
youíll see 3 palm trees, the square south of the middle palm tree hides a 
>GOLDEN APPLE<. From where you start, head east past the large tree stump, 
drop into the water and head south. At the very bottom point in the water a 
>BADGE OF COURAGE< is hiding. From where Avis starts, there is a log to the 
northwest of him. Put the cursor on the northern part of that log, then move 
south 2 squares, you should be at Height 22, a >BADGE OF COURAGE< is hiding 
there.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


After the scene, Avis joins your party. Personally I didnít mind Avis, he 
seemed to hold his own when I used him. However, he leaves the party for a 
bit before returning again, and when he returns heíll be at a higher level 
anyways, so there really is no point in leveling him now.

Back to the world map. Before starting any quests, get Linea up to at least 
level 6, so she doesnít get killed in one of the quests. Also I recommend 
leveling Zol up as well, since there will be a quest later in which HIS stats 
are whatís important.


!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

Give Oriusís equipment to Linea; as for Zol, buy him a pointed hat and clergy 
robe, and do these fusions.

Badge of Courage + Badge of Courage = Main Gauche (Zol)
Cloth Helmet + Charm = Salamander Tail (Zol)
(Or Vigor Nut + Cloth)

Once youíve leveled up, begin some quests.

After youíre done the quests, prepare yourself for 2 consecutive battles. 
I recommend having an average party level of 8. You wonít have to worry about 
any special conditions, as you are actually required to take the bosses HP 
down all the way this time. When you are ready, head for Quatra.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Lv.6 Spearman, Lv.7 Spearman, Lv.6 Alchemist, Lv.7 Alchemist, 
Lv.6 Soldier x3, Lv.7 Soldier
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Badge of Courage X3
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the northeast portion of the map, with Spero facing south.

BATTLE:
Iíd send Linea west to snipe the enemies through the trees as the start to 
come towards you. Then send your party south over the river, those soldiers 
are all level 6. Adaraís Shock Blast and Lineaís Storm, work well on the 
soldiers. Once theyíve been defeated, head for the Alchemist, heíll use shock 
blast on you, so try to creep up and get as close as possible before he 
notices you.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, notice the palm tree north of you, behind it hides a 
>BADGE OF COURAGE<. From where you start, notice the normal tree, next to the 
palm tree to your west. Place the cursor directly in between those two trees, 
then move west 2 squares (square will turn yellow), that spot hides a 
>BADGE OF COURAGE<. At the far west end of the river, just north of the 
southern tree there is a >BADGE OF COURAGE<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Afterwards, youíll get a short scene follow by the boss battle.

Lv.8 Archer x1, Lv.7 Cleric x1, Lv.8 Cleric x1, Lv.7 Soldier x1, 
Lv.8 Soldier x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Viper
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vital Nut X3
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Heroís Emblem
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start at the southwest portion of the map this time, and the boss is in 
the northeast. Spero is facing north to start.

BATTLE:
*Note: Viperís Fear Zone is now a complete square surrounding him.
First thing you should do is kill the closest soldier (east), once heís down, 
take out the cleric, followed by the archer with Linea and Adara, while the 
boys handle the last soldier. The enemies to the northwest will come over 
right away, so itís important to get close to the enemies on your right and 
finish them off so youíre not overwhelmed. Once all those enemies are killed, 
regardless of your location, the boss and his 2 soldiers will start coming 
towards you. For this reason, you may want to delay killing the last enemy 
until your party is back together (if they are spread apart). 

Viper has a new special skill that does more damage than his other one. 
However, I still recommend surrounding him, since if youíre like me, and 
purchased Adaraís End Turn Zone Skill, then when Viper uses his Skill, he 
wonít be able to follow it up with an attack. The AI is pretty good though, 
and at times, heíll attack first, and if so, he can follow up with his skill. 
But with Mercator on the outskirts healing, you should be fine. Once Viper 
gets down to about 500 HP, then just use a Team Attack to finish him off. He 
wonít run away, but itís just safer this way.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS
From where you start, take 1 step into the river, and head west to the end, 
that square hides a >VITAL NUT<. From where you start, head north and cross 
the river, between the 2 sets of trees, at the end of the grassy path by the 
cliff hides a >VITAL NUT< (itís in the center of the grassy path right next 
to the cliff). North of where Viper starts, directly behind the palm tree a 
>VITAL NUT< is hiding.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


After the battle some scenes will start............Spero and Linea are so 
cute ?, and youíre given a chance to save.

Alright, now that the rank 3 items are available, we can fuse some rank 4 
stuff. Iíll give some suggestions, but remember, the fun part about fusing is 
discovering things yourself :)

Bronze + Keeping Healthy = Silver (Adara)
-> (Keeping Healthy = Bronze + Evening Party)
-> (Evening Party = Rivet Knuckle + Javelin)

Ring Mail + Amulet = Trent Staff (Mercator)
-> (Amulet = Whistle + Oak Staff)

Whistle + Long Sword = Bardiche (Grey)

Whistle + Life Jacket = Glitter Arrow (Linea)
-> (Life Jacket = Assassin Knife + Badge of Courage)

Talisman + Iron Rod = Ashura x2 (Spero)
-> (Talisman = Stone Rod + Whistle) x2

Alright, feel free to do more if you want, but I stopped there since my 
Weight was getting too high. For example I had to remove Speroís armor 
completely to get him back down to 20 MOV.

############################## END OF QUESTS ################################



Ok so weíre finally done all those quests. Now the next story battle will 
require a very special condition, I explain it in the Hydor section below, 
but for now you just need to know that we are going to require some leveling. 
To make things easy, (and trust me, youíll want the next battle to be east, 
as it can get extremely frustrating having to redo the battle because you 
didnít satisfy the requirements) I recommend getting Linea to Level 14 so her 
damage with a new skill Iíll be getting, will be strong enough to accomplish 
what weíre after. So without further ado....


!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

Letís go to the Catacombs. (Just an update, Iím currently at Floor 10)

After leveling up to 14 and reaching floor 15 of the catacombs, we should be 
ready to move on.

If you havenít yet, equip Linea with a Feline Teardrop (Anti-Dark), because 
Jade has a dark Zone Skill, that way, we donít have to worry about her 
accuracy, the last thing you want is for the last enemy to evade her special 
attack and cause us to have to redo the entire stage.


!!!RANKING UP TIME!!!

Once Linea reaches 50 INT and 45 TEC, use that Golden Apple we found back in 
Swamp of Loss to Rank her up, and with that rank up, teach her "Cluster Ray", 
weíll need this to complete the Special Condition in the next battle.

Similarly, once Spero has 45 STR and 50 TEC, use that Heroís Emblem that we 
won from the Viper Battle. Spero will become a "Swordmaster" and can now 
equip 3 Actions Skills, not to mention he has more skills that can now be 
purchased.

2) Kill the 3 bodyguards the start next to Jade and you win.
3) If Jade dies you win.

Lose:
1) Spero dies
2) Mysterious man dies

SPECIAL CONDITIONS: 
In order to recruit VISER you must kill ALL ENEMIES on the map (minus Jade). 
This means, you need to leave Jade and 5 generics alive, and then kill off 
all generics with a single skill/spell. Recruiting VISER does not require you 
to kill Jade here, however, if you do kill Jade with that single skill/spell, 
then you can recruit him in chapter 4. If you donít kill Jade then you have 
to wait until chapter 5 to recruit him, provided you satisfy some 
requirements later in the game.

*Recommended skill to use - Lineaís Cluster Ray

HIDDEN ITEMS: Herb x2, Vigor Nut x2
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Five Rings
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start on the southwest side; boss is southeast; man we need to protect is 
in northeast.

BATTLE:
Once ???ís turn comes up, send him directly into the water, eventually having 
him meet up with our party by taking that water route. However, donít take 
him out of the water, just leave him there, and once the archers are dead he 
should be fine sitting there for the rest of the battle.

Ok so the best enemies to kill would be the 3 Spearmen, the 2 archers, and 
1 Cleric. Why? Because archers wonít get into range of Lineaís attack; 
Spearman can hit 2 people at the same time, and you donít want them 
prematurely killing their own men and causing the battle end; the Cleric 
next, to limit the healing done, and thus speed up the process. So now itís a 
matter of luring the axemen and the rest of Jades men to your starting 
location (I find this location to be the best for setting up Lineaís Cluster 
Ray). I recommend having Mercator and Spero next to Linea, while the rest of 
your characters are on the opposite side of the map. This will cause the 
enemies to surround the 3 of them in a way that will still be close enough 
for Cluster Ray to hit everyone. 

After the Cleric uses up all his Healing magic, heíll go melee; this is the 
time to bring down Jadeís HP (only if youíre trying to overkill Jade), also 
Iíd hit the axemen 1 time each, but be careful not to kill them. Once youíre 
ready, select "Cluster Ray" and with the square button, you can cycle through 
all the enemies you are targeting, can check to see if you are going to do 
enough damage to them to kill them. If everything looks good, unleash the 
skill.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start head north and up the stairs where the archer is. 
Notice 2 windows and a door on that building; line your cursor up with the 
window thatís closest to the door, then move the cursor north 4 squares to 
find an >HERB<. From where Jade starts look to the bridge north of him, that 
bridge consists of 2 rows, place your cursor on the first square of the east 
row, then move it 2 squares east (into the water), a >VIGOR NUT< hides there. 
Now place your cursor on the first square of the west row, then move it west 
1 square to drop into the water on the other side, that square hides an 
>HERB<. From where you start look to the bridge east of you; there is a strip 
of water to the south of that bridge, in the corner nearest you there is a 
>VIGOR NUT< hiding in the water.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


After the battle a scene will occur and Gallant will join the party. He is 
awesome!! Heís so strong that he can carry a lot of weight and thus his move 
will be pretty low, I suggest using him.

Ok so since Iíve decided to use Gallant, Iím going to make him some equipment 
and level him up a couple levels. If you donít want to use him, then just 
skip ahead to the next section, Evarate (C0811).


Potion + Potion = Battle Axe (Gallant)
-> (Potion = Whistle + Iron Rod) x2

Cloth + Vigor Nut = Salamander Tail (Gallant)

Clergy Robe + Copper = Sun Band (Gallant)



I level Gallant to level 11. Donít forget to use that FIVE RINGS that Jade 
dropped to rank up Grey.

When youíre ready head to Evarate.



*===========================================================================*

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 9 Fighter, Level 9 Swordsman, Level 9 Thief, Level 9 Soldier 
x4, Level 9 Alchemist
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat all Enemies.
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vigor Nut, Herb, Vigor Seed
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Glass Eye
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southeast corner of the map and Spero is facing west.

BATTLE:
Take out the fighter to the north, then make your way west towards the 
stairs. If you creep up, the thief will move before the soldiers do, so take 
him out first, then gang up on the soldiers. Once the enemies at the bottom 
have been killed, the enemies at the top will start coming towards you. Be 
sure not to get caught on the stairs, as the enemy will have a higher 
elevation, thus doing more damage. Youíll most likely have to wait for them 
to come down to you. Take out the Alchemist with Linea and Adara since he can 
cause poison, then use team attacks on the soldiers.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Directly in front of you, you will see 3 pillars, wedged in the corner of 
wall below them is >VIGOR SEED<. North past the lone fighter thereís a small 
house, behind the broken piece of stone, directly under the window hides an 
>HERB<. From where you start, head west, then head north up the stairs. At 
the top of the steps head west up more stairs, then head south and search the 
far southwest corner for a >VIGOR NUT<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


After the battle, youíll see our beautiful princess lose her cool. You may 
have received a GLASS EYE from this battle, use it on Adara. I also taught 
her Bullet Rays and First Aid.

No Quests Available at this Time, at least for me there werenít, Iím still 
not entirely sure what causes them to pop up, oh well.

Once you enter Villa Fortune, youíll have a choice to make:
"Letís take a rest." -> leads to a battle (C0812)
"We need to keep moving." -> no battle, skip ahead to (C0813)

Choose whichever one you feel most comfortable with. Iíll be covering the 
battle, so here we go.

ENEMIES: Level 10 Fiend x7
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat all Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vigor Nut, Herb, Lotion
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Golden Apple, *Solid Soul
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Spero starts at the north end by the castle, and Linea and Adara start at the 
south end.

BATTLE:
Note: these enemies all have a dark Zone effect.
Ok so I have no idea how Linea and Adara ended up down there, but the make a 
good team so you shouldnít be worried. Have them gang up on the enemy to 
their east. If Adara has learned Bullet Rays, then she can take off a good 
chunk of HP, if not, stick with shock blast. With 4 characters at the top, 
you may think youíre in the clear, but the enemy can gang up on you pretty 
fast. I recommend focusing on the one in the northwest corner, and waiting 
for the others to arrive. Team up whenever possible. 

One strategy is to attack with 1 or 2 characters hopefully getting him under 
300HP, then unleash a team attack with the other 2 members. Likewise for the 
next enemy, attack with 1 or 2 characters, and team attack with the OTHER 2 
characters. This should eliminate 2 of the enemies by the stairs, then have 
the girls climb the stairs to meet up with the rest, and it will be 6 versus 
3 at that point. Although if you followed my guide up to now, youíd be 5 
levels higher then them, in which case, just slaughter them ?.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Directly behind Spero, inside the castle door, hides a >VIGOR NUT< and an 
>HERB<. From where Linea and Adara start, stay by the wall and head east to 
the end of the path. The second last square hides a >LOTION<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


If you had difficulty with that battle you may want to level up a bit, cause 
the next battle is very similar, except the enemies are level 11, and we have 
a Special Condition we have to accomplish.

ENEMIES: Level 11 Fiend x7
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat all Enemies
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: In order to recruit that cat-girl later, you need to keep 
her alive during this battle.
HIDDEN ITEMS: Herb x2
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS: 
We start at the northeast side of the map. Cat-girl we need to save is at 
northwest.

BATTLE:
Note: all the enemies have the Dark zone skill again.
Head west with your party and protect the cat-girl. The enemy in the 
southeast corner may come towards you, but if you are heading east you wont 
have to worry about him for a bit. Move the cat-girl east towards your party, 
have Mercator ready to heal her since sheíll probably be hit by all 3 enemies 
to start. Once youíve dispatch the first 4 enemies, make your way to the 
southwest corner. Those 3 enemies wonít move until you get close to them, get 
rid of them the same way, with Linea and Adara pelting them from afar and the 
boys getting in close.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
In the southeast corner of the map there is an >HERB<. On the west side of 
the map, youíll see a set of stairs, leading down into the water. Once you 
set foot in the water at the bottom of those stairs, head 4 squares south to 
find an >HERB<.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


After the battle our adorable cat-girl runs away. After a few scenes youíll 
be back on the world map. Letís do some quests shall we.

Now, before I went ahead to the Cathedral, I made some fusions with the items 
I got from the catacombs.

Double Axe + Potion = Steel Spear (Grey)

Ok, off to the Cathedral!

ENEMIES: Level 12 Golem x6
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Potion, Vigor Nut
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Knight Crest
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start at the south of the map with Spero facing north.

BATTLE:
Send Adara, Linea and Grey to take out the west Golem, and Gallant, Spero and 
Mercator to the east Golem. They will both come down to meet you, and the 
middle Golem will also. Hopefully the middle Golem heads west so Linea and 
Adara can hit him with ranged attacks. At this point, Lineaís Storm attack 
was doing a lot of damage. From a standing position she can attack once and 
then use storm. Once the 3 at the bottom are killed, the 3 at the top will 
start towards you. Take them out the same way, but try to get on level 
playing surface (ie donít stand on the stairs below them).

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS
Traversing every square in this place took quite a while. On this map there 
are 2 red symbols/paintings on the cement, 1 at the bottom and 1 at the top. 
Go to the TOP symbol and place your cursor in the very center of the symbols 
circle, then move west 6 squares and north 1 square, you should be in a 
corner next to the stairs, hiding there is a >POTION<. On the opposite side, 
6 squares east and 1 square north of the symbols center circle is a 
>VIGOR NUT<.

Once those are done, head to the catacombs. I leveled up to 19, 3 levels 
above the next boss, that way I can be 100% sure to overkill him.

Remember, by team attacking, you can get some item drops, I landed a Darkness 
Robe from one of the enemies, but since none of my characters can equip it 
without increasing their move, I decided to see what I could make with it. I 
found a fusion that the faqs donít have.

Darkness Robe + Vital Nut = Gold (rank 6) (Adara)

You should have the Vital Nut from one of the hidden items.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss Ė VISER (Level 18 Master Alchemist), Level 13 Golem x3, Level 
12 Golem x2.
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: The mission will end if either of the following occur:
1) Defeat VISER
2) Defeat 3 Golems
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: In order to recruit VISER you MUST OVERKILL HIM. Doing 
this requires you to leave 3 Golems alive while you gang up on VISER.
HIDDEN ITEMS: Lotion, Potion x2, Talisman
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
You start at the south end of the map with VISER in the north.

BATTLE:
If you end turn on the row prior to the first step leading north, the 3 
Golems will come down, so avoid that. Send 3 characters east and 3 characters 
west, have Linea and Adara on opposite sides and use their magic to take a 
large chunk of HP from the Golems, then clean up with the boys. Now when you 
are ready, approach Viser. Remember not to kill the Golems. Once youíve 
surrounded Viser, take down his HP to about 540-550, and unleash a team 
attack lead by the character with the highest TEC, also try to have Viser 
with his back to that character if possible. At a party level of 19, I did 
819 damage with a 6 person team attack.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Head to the southwest corner, the cursor should be over a GREY square. Move 
the cursor 1 square north to find a >LOTION<. Head to the southeast corner, 
the cursor should be over a GREY square. Move the cursor 1 square north to 
find a >POTION<. Move the cursor to the northeast corner of the map, youíll 
be on a grey square, 4 squares south of that, is the first yellow square, 
this square is hiding a >POTION<. Move the cursor to the northwest corner of 
the map, youíll be on a grey square, 4 squares south of that, is the first 
yellow square, this square is hiding a >TALISMAN<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Save, then head for Cathedral 3F.

NOTE: we have another Special Condition for the next battle

***You can only pick 4 characters for the next battle, so to make things easy 
on you, level up to level 20 with those 4 characters. I suggest Spero, Linea, 
Grey and Gallant. I also fused them some rank 6 weapons, cause I wanted to be 
sure I overkilled Jade, as failing 3 times gets pretty frustrating.

CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Protect Lumena and Prier
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Overkill Jade!
HIDDEN ITEMS: Potion, Vital Nut x2
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Eden Seed
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS: 
We start at the south end of the map, with Jade high up on the north end

BATTLE:
NOTE: Donít move Lumena or Prier towards the enemies. As long as they donít 
move, they wonít be attacked. However if you get TOO HIGH onto one side of 
the stairs and not high enough on the other, what will happen is, the 
following:
1) get too high on the east stairs, causing Devil to notice you and go after 
you.
2) didnít get high enough on the west stairs for the Devil to notice you, but 
since the Devil on the east side moved, the one on the west side will move 
too, but since youíre not high enough on the west side, the closest people 
for him to attack will be Lumena and Prier.

NOTE: If you kill all the enemies before causing Jade and his 2 Devil guards 
to come at you, the battle will end. So what you should do is, kill everyone 
south of the priest, then use Linea to shoot one of the Devil guards around 
Jade, this will cause them to attack, then youíre free to kill the rest of 
the enemies, leaving you with only Jade left.

Since weíre only allowed 4 characters I suggest, Spero, Grey, Gallant, Linea. 
You wonít need a healer because Prier and Lumena can heal.  I chose gallant 
because in a team attack he hits more times then adara, thus causing more 
damage.

Depending on how strong you are, you could just send 2 characters to either 
side, and make your way up. If youíre not that high leveled, then I suggest 
sending all your characters up 1 side, and once you reach the Devil, you can 
move Lumena and Prier towards you, gathering all 6 members together. Once you 
start attacking the 2 Devils, the priest will come down. Ignore him and go up 
to Jade, once Jades guards start attacking, try to get rid of them asap, 
since they will team attack with Jade, once the Devils are gone kill the 
priest, leaving only Jade left. 

Now itís going to be hard to overkill him because you only have a 4 person 
team. I left him with 751 HP, and my team lead by Spero attacking from 
behind, did 746 HP worth of damage. So I didnít overkill him, and of course 
I reset and tried again. I got him down to 760, and attacked with Lumena, but 
she got a critical and hit 54 HP damage, ending the battle *Sigh*. 

NOTE: DO NOT LET HIM GET UNDER 750HP, Iím currently on my 4th try now, my 
last try was 798HP, and Lumena hit him for 49HP, and the stupid battle ended. 
So if you compare my 1st and 4th tries, youíll see that 750 is the cut off.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS
One square east and 1 square south of Lumenaís starting position, hides a 
>VITAL NUT<. Just north of where you start, youíll see a circular platform, 
and a drop into the dark abyss, at the edge of the platform (center square) 
hides a >POTION<. At the top, where Jade is, notice a small throne seat, at 
least I think itís a seat? Anyways, itís right behind Jade. Place the cursor 
on that seat and move it north 3 squares to the back, youíll find a 
>VITAL NUT<.

Ok so once the quests are done, weíre ready to move on. Just an FYI, Iím 
currently at level 26, but donít worry you donít need to be that high, I only 
leveled in order to complete mock battle 3.

I recommend being at least level 18 for the next battle since we have a 
Special Condition we need to meet to recruit more characters later in the 
game.

When you are ready head to Taberna.



*===========================================================================*
|                                 TABERNA                                   |
|                                  C0817                                    |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss - ECHIDNA (Level 16 Swordmaster), Level 15 Swordmaster x2, 
Level 15 Bandit x2, Level 15 Priest x1, Level 15 Master Alchemist x2, 
Level 15 Armored Knight x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Echidna.
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Overkill ECHIDNA!!
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vital Nut, *Five Rings, Potion
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We begin in the southeast corner of the map.

BATTLE:
*Prior to the battle youíll be given a choice:
-> "Youíre about to find out!" -> Echidna will replace 1 Swordmaster in 
battle, and by overkilling her youíll have completed 1 of the requirements 
for recruiting her.
-> "Ready? I just want my sword." -> Sheíll disappear and you can NEVER 
recruit her.

Once you climb the boxes the armored knights and master alchemist will come 
at you from across the bridge. Take out the alchemist with Linea and Adara so 
you donít have to worry about those annoying status effects. One of the 
armored knights is carrying a rank 5 weapon, so take him out first, then kill 
the other knight. Now donít cross the bridge or Echidna will come towards 
you, instead pass under the archway to the north, and take on those enemies. 
Once their dead, head around and down the stairs. If the enemies come at you, 
have Linea stand from above and pick them off. Once you get to the bottom of 
the stairs, Echidna should start coming towards you. Try to eliminate the 
guards around her, cause they have the HP recover Zone skill and will recover 
a lot of her HP. Once they are gone, surround Echidna and get her HP to about 
850, no lower. Then unleash a 6 person team attack to overkill her.


HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, head behind the food stand, in the corner between the 
food stand and the river hides a >VITAL NUT<. From where you start, climb the 
boxes and head north through the archway. Once you pass the archway, look to 
you east, you should see a patch of grass. The deepest square is hiding a 
>FIVE RINGS<. From where you start, look across the river to a second food 
stand, between that food stand and the river, as far south as you can go, 
hides a >POTION<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



Ok, if you accepted the Fusionist Exam 1 quest a little while back, it may be 
time for it now that Taberna is available. For me, it was April 13th, it 
really depends on how much youíve traversed the map, since each location 
costs a day.

So once you have a Blue Beret in your inventory (NOT equipped), head to 
Taberna.

*Fusion fees are now 20% lower* YAaaayy!

Ok for me, there were no new quests at this time, so letís head to Asheville.



*===========================================================================*
|                                ASHEVILLE                                  |
|                                 C0818                                     |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 16 Devil x9
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Potion x2, *Eden Seed
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Clay Jar
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southwest corner of the map.

BATTLE:
Ok, so I sent Prier and Gallant on the bottom squares, and Linea, Grey, Adara,
 and Spero on the top ones. You may way to put someone else with the bottom 
group, but my gallant was a tank so he could take out one of the enemies in a 
single turn. For the other group, I sent only Linea all the way north to take 
out the northwestern most enemy, but I pulled the other 3 and sent them west 
towards the 2 enemies that Prier and Gallant were about to meet up with. 
After taking care of those 2 enemies, those 5 would go up the stairs to the 
northeast, to meet up with the other 2 enemies, while Linea, who is most 
likely at a high elevation in the north, can still snipe at them from length.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Ok there are 8 red squares to place characters on, 4 above , 4 below. On the 
above 4 squares, place someone on the southwest square, then when their turn 
comes up move them 1 square west, youíll find a >POTION<. On the bottom 4 
squares, send a character as far west as possible, youíll find an 
>EDEN SEED<. Go to the highest building on the map, and head down those small 
set of stairs, at the bottom of the stairs (52 Ht.) is a >POTION<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



Thereís a quest available now, but Iím going to wait until after the next 
battle. Letís head to the deserts of Sublea.

** I decided to make a Zero Gravity (Rank 12), which teaches Hermes Wing. 
This way I will have no troubles getting to high places and searching for 
hidden items. I donít recommend this unless you really want those hidden 
items for completion sake, but the only reason I made it was for the purpose 
of this walkthrough. I may not even find any hidden items in the high places 
that are not traversable without the hermes wing, however, this way, this 
walkthrough will be complete, that way the reader (you) will not have to 
wonder if there is an item in that spot you canít reach. It took me 4 hours 
of fusing, and 500,000 dollars later, I finally made it. This early in the 
game, that was pretty difficult.



*===========================================================================*
|                                 SUBLEA                                    |
|                                  C0819                                    |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 17 Devil x9
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vital Nut, Vital Nut, Herb, Palladium
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Hawkeye
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS: 
We start sort of in the center but more towards the south end of the map, so 
for directions Iíll base it on the stairs in the southeast part of the map. 
The stairs are heading upwards in an EASTERNLY direction. 

BATTLE:
The 5 enemies nearest you, will come towards you right away. Take out the 
enemy behind you first, then do your best to not get overwhelmed by the other 
4, they close in pretty quick. Once those enemies are killed, you can easily 
creep up to the others, as the area is large, and you can spread them out if 
you want. I suggest you put Linea on the northern building so she can snipe 
the enemies from high up. Sheíll need Jump +1 to get up there. As long as you 
donít bunch up to many characters, damage will be limited since their spears 
wont hit more then one character. Other then that, the battle is pretty 
straight forward.


HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
*In case you were curious, there are no hidden items on top of the southwest 
building :(.
From where you start, head up the stairs to the southeast, at the top of this 
building, in the northeast corner hides a >VITAL NUT<. On the south side of 
the southwest building, there are 4 squares touching the building; left, 
middle left, middle right and right, the middle right square is hiding a 
>VITAL NUT<. On top of the southeast building (the one with the stairs), the 
southwest corner hides a >PALLADIUM<. On the north side of the northern most 
building there are 5 squares touching the wall, the middle square hides an 
>HERB<.

Q57)
QUEST NAME: Malfunction
REQUIREMENTS: NA
DESCRIPTION 1: Golems have gone haywire in Asheville. At this rate theyíre 
going to tear the town apart! Someone help!
DESCRIPTION 2: 3 Level 18 Golems. You have to protect the 3 Elementors who 
are Level 5!! You can only dispatch 3 characters. Immediately kill the one to 
your left with Adaraís Bullet Rays, and use Linea to kill the one at the 
bottom (if she can reach it). I had the Hermes Wing skill at this point (ya 
chapter 3), so I sent Spero down there on his first turn and he was close 
enough to distract the Golem. Without it, I donít see a way to prevent that 
Golem at the bottom from killing that Elementor. I saved all 3 of them and 
still only got 10,000, so I guess there isnít anything special about it. So 
long as not all 3 Elementors are killed, I think you still succeed.

############################## END OF QUESTS ################################


Once youíre done with the quests itís time to move on.

The next battle has a Special Condition so I recommend being at least Level 
20, but 21 is better. So head to the catacombs, work on some fusion, spend 
some SP on skills, etc. Remember you donít have to limit yourself to the 
skills the character have on their purchase screen, you can fuse things and 
teach them those skills. This is what I fused:

Gladius + Palladium = Magic II (Adara & Prier)
Lotion + Aged Gauntlets = Power II (Spero, Grey, Gallant, Linea)
I also suggest you have at least rank 6 weapons by now.

The extra 20% should definitely help out in the next battle

** I recommend having Grey equip his ACC UP Zone Skill for this battle and 
Spero his EVA UP Zone Skill. Also have Spero learn Anti-Dark, or just equip 
him with a Feline Teardrop.

Ok so once youíre ready, head for Tesca.

ENEMIES: Boss - JADE (Level 19 Bandit), Level 18 Axe Knight x2, Level 18 
Hunter x2, Level 18 Warrior x2, Level 18 Priest x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Jade.
SPECIAL CONDITION: Overkill Jade!
HIDDEN ITEMS:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We begin in the southeast corner of the map.

BATTLE:
To start, take out the enemies on the hill. Use Linea and Adara to kill the 
Priest, then have them go after the archer. Have the guys take out the 
warrior. After that head west, but keep away from the center of the map, you 
donít want those Axe wielders and Jade coming after you too early. So take 
out the group to the west the same way you took out the first group. Now try 
to lure the axemen without Jade, I heard itís possible but I couldnít do it. 
Again use Adara and Linea to bring down the axemans HP a bit, so when they 
approach you, it wonít take you more than 1 turn to finish them off with the 
rest of your party.

As for Jade, physical attacks will be difficult because of his crazy EVA, not 
to mention his 5 square in each direction Dark Zone Skill. Magic will hit 
100% of the time, so you may want to use Lineaís Storm, if you canít connect 
physically. Try hitting him with a spell to cause him to face that character, 
then have a strong physical attacker, attack from behind him. I got Jade down 
to 1178HP before attempting a Team attack, so Iím not sure how much lower his 
HP can go before he escapes from the battle.

**After the battle you have a choice to make:
"Iím not really going to." -> Youíll be able to recruit Jade later.
"But...Heís scum!" -> You can never recruit Jade.

What happens after your choice is supposed to happen, donít worry.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
On the west side of the map, youíll see a broken structure, now bear with me; 
on the southern side of the structure, youíll see 2 pieces of stone sticking 
up vertically, in between them at a height of 24, is hiding a >LOTION<. From 
where you start, notice the structure to your north, the one on a hill, as 
the very top, youíll see what looks like a window, place the cursor on that 
window and move 1 square west, to drop down to the sand, in that walls corner 
hides a >BEAST FANG<. Bear with me again; put the cursor on the northwest 
corner of the map (the last yellow square in that corner), 1 square south and 
1 square east of that spot, hides a >COIN<.

protect the 3 Villagers, who have Fear casted on them. Leave all 3 character 
on the top elevation, with Linea on the edge to snipe at the archer below, he 
will go after Linea. Then I chose Prier as my 3rd character, cause once her 
turn comes up (hopefully before the archer above) you can heal the villager

move them as far east as you can.

Once youíre done with the quests letís head to Dita.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 19 Devil x6
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Lotion x2, Coin
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southeast corner of the map, with the giant sand dune in the 
north of the map.

BATTLE:
Due to the setting sun, these Devils are a bit stronger then the last ones 
you fought in Sublea. Theyíre only 2 levels higher, but their HP increase 
quite a bit in comparison. Head west first and take out the 2 Devils to 
start.

After taking out the 2 lower enemies, try to lure the enemies down from the 
sand dune, so they donít have a height advantage. While they are coming down, 
have Linea snipe at them to make things easier when you start battling them 
with the rest of your party. Overall itís not a difficult battle, as itís 6 
on 6.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, step back onto the most southeastern yellow square on 
the map. From that square, head 6 squares west to find a >LOTION<, (Note 7 
squares west will be a grey square). Ok bear with me, the next item is only a 
Lotion, but those who like to get everything Iíll try my best to describe its 
location. 

Go to the north end of the map, over the high dune and down BEHIND that high 
dune (Still north) to the edge of the map. *Direction change: Face the camera 
such that you are looking at the BACK of that large dune. South of you should 
be the edge of the map, and should consist of a row of grey squares of heights
 33 and 34. Place the cursor on any of the 34 Ht. Grey squares, and move LEFT 
until you reach the SECOND 33Ht. Grey square, then move up 2 squares to land 
on a yellow square of Ht. 35, there is a >LOTION< hiding there.

Ok another difficult one. Keep the new directions (ie facing the back of that 
large dune). Again look at the row of grey squares at the edge of the map, 
this time weíre going to go RIGHT. So, staying on the edge, move the cursor 
right until you hit a grey square of Height 31, then move the cursor up 5 
squares to a Ht of 38, then right 2 squares to a Ht of 35, in that spot hides 
a >COIN<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

No new quests at this time, so letís head for Shanty Town.




*===========================================================================*
|                              SHANTY TOWN                                  |

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 20 Golem x8
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Vital Nut, Potion x2
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south portion of the map.

BATTLE:
The 4 golems surrounding you will start coming towards you right from the 
beginning. So try to keep your party spread out a bit, so not all of them 
will get caught in the Golems ranged attacks. Of the closest 3 golems, I 
recommend going for the one to the left first. This will ensure the least 
amount of golems attacking you on the first turn. Only 2 of the first 4 have 
this long range special attack and heís one of them, although Iím not sure if 
itís randomized at the start of battle, you should check to be safe.

Once you kill the last of the 4 golems the other 4 will start coming towards 
you. Let them come, gather your party and prepare to attack. Again for me, 
only 2 of the 4 golems had their long range specials, so if you want to set 
up a decoy (Gallant), then theyíll use their special against him, while the 
rest of your party sits back and waits. Keep Gallant healed with Prier and he 
should be fine. The golems can only use their special twice, so once theyíve 
depleted their MP, move in for the kill. Keep in mind that magic does more 
damage against them, and that they can attack 4 times from a stand still, as 
well as attack from 2 panels away like Grey.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
West of you, youíll see 2 pots, in between them is a grey square, west of 
that grey square is a >VITAL NUT<. From where you start, drop onto the sand 
directly behind you, then head east to the second last yellow square in the 
southeast corner, youíll find a >POTION<. From where you start, notice the 
tent to your east. The tent to the north of that tent hides a >POTION< right 
in front of its entrance (Ht 21).

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Well, there are no new quests again, however, you should prepare before the 
next battle, since there will be 2 battles in a row with no chance to save.

I recommend being at least level 25 and have Anti-Fear for all characters, or 
at least have a way to cure it, like Adaraís recover spell, or Prierís Holy 
Light which is a lot better. If youíre going with the status recovery magic, 
then make sure the girls have anti-fear otherwise they wont be able to 
recover to begin with.

Ok Iím going to make a rank 8 item for Spero:

Lotion + Aged Gauntlets = Power II
Palladium + Palladium = Tomahawk
 -> Power II + Tomahawk = Lucky Coat
 -> Hachigane + Hachigane = Combinations II
  --> Lucky Coat + Combinations II = Silver Staff

Akujiki + Palladium = Total Poison
Priest Hat + Priest Hat = Rippled Bow
 -> Rippled Bow + Total Poison = Smelling Salt

Smelling Salt + Silver Staff = Sword Bag (Spero)

With its anti-fear, good stats and low weight I feel itís worth the money.

When you are ready, head for Turris.

ENEMIES: Level 21 Golem x7
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Golems
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Do not harm Tia or you canít recruit her, donít even hit 
her, to be sure I even unequipped Priers HP/MP Damage Zone Skill. And I never 
use counter attacks anyways, because when you kill an enemy with a counter 
attack, you donít get the EXP.
HIDDEN ITEMS: Potion, Gold Lump, Vital Nut, Blue Ribbon
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southwest corner of the map.

BATTLE:
Take out the 2 golems that start near you, then take out the 3rd one to the 
east that came down. Just northeast of you, youíll see steps that lead up to 
the ramp. Stay away from there, cause once you get on the steps, the enemies 
on the top and the other side will start towards you. Climb onto the ramp 
from the south and make your way up, using Linea and Adaras ranged attacks to 
take care of the enemies on the opposite side (ground), and the guys to take 
care of the golems on the ramp. Keep Prier back to heal the others. 
enemies will use team attacks so be careful.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, notice the small structure to your immediate right, on 
the opposite side of that structure, right beside it in a corner (Ht 22) 
hides a >POTION<. At the very top of the highest structure (where Tia starts),
 place your cursor on the east side of the tallest pillar (Ht. 58), that spot 
hides a >GOLD LUMP<. On the opposite side of that long ramp that leads up to 
Tia, there is a >VITAL NUT< hiding in the very southern corner of that ramp, 
itís tucked into the bottom at HT. 23. On the FAR northeast side of the map, 
on the opposite side of that broken wall, head as far up and as far right as 
you can, that square hides a >BLUE RIBBON< (Ht. 37).

*For those who are curious, the top of that wall, which is only accessible 
with the Hermes Wing skill, has nothing on it.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Aww, Tiaís so cute, I donít understand why people donít like her, haha "Spero 
McGee"

Ok, onto the next battle.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 24 Golem: Beta
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat the Golem
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Keep Tia Alive or you can NEVER recruit her!
HIDDEN ITEMS: Coin
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Ok small map here, we start on the east side of the map, with Tia and the 
Golem below us in the west.

BATTLE:
First things first, use Prier or Adara to heal Tia, then on Tiaís turn send 
her north up the slanting....whatever that is. Keep her away from the Golem 
since he out-levels her by 2 and thus can easily kill her. Then I suggest 
putting Gallant on one of the steps leading up to your party, preferably the 
lowest step. Keep the rest of your party on the sides of the raised area (ie 
no one directly behind Gallant. Use Adaraís Bullet Rays and Lineaís Storm to 
inflict damage. 

Note that the golem will attack Gallant, but he may still step to the side 
and use his special on you party above. If he does, heal immediately 
afterwards. You can pull Spero down to the bottom if you want, but whatever 
you do, make sure you have enough SP to move at least 1 space away from the 
Golem. You have to be careful with physical attacks, since the golem has a 
counter 30% skill equipped.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
In the southwest corner of this map there is >COIN<.

* For those of you who were curious, the areas on either side of the stairs, 
which are only accessible with the Hermes Wing skill, donít have any items.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 23 Spirit x7, Level 23 Elementalist x5
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Balm x2, Vital Nut, Holy Water
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south portion of the map

BATTLE:
Since you begin at the bottom and pretty much all the enemies are above you, 
there really is no preference to which side you head towards. I headed west, 
then north up the wide staircase. Every enemy on the screen will attack you 
with ranged magic, so itís going to be pretty frustrating. They are not very 
strong physically, so your best bet is to dash right up to the as fast as 
possible, limiting the number of turns they get to cast spells. I would take 
out the Spirits first, since they have the stronger magic. The elementalists 
on the other hand have the stronger physical attacks.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, notice the tall narrow staircase to your east. There is 
a path south of the stairs and at the end of that path hides a >VITAL NUT<. 
From where you start, notice 2 things: 1 the wall that you can climb via the 
platforms it provides to your left, and 2, the wall with just 1 platform to 
your right, that you canít reach until you get to the top of that area, THAT 
platform (single one) has a >BALM< on it. At the far northeast portion of the 
map, there are a secret set of stairs, that lead down to a small platform 
which is hiding a >HOLY WATER<. Next to those stairs is a structure with an 
enemy on top of it. One of the squares on it is hiding a >BALM<.

* For those who are curious the highest accessible spot on the map is Ht.65, 
and can only be reached with Hermes Wing. There are no items on this spot.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


*Level 40 of the Catacombs is now open*

Ok for the next area, I recommend you have Gallant at least at level 26, with 
some good equipment, that is, if you donít want him to be killed. Give him 
the Blue Ribbon and a Silver Anklet at the very least.

When you are ready, letís head for Gallants Village.



*===========================================================================*
|                                 BOREAS                                    |

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 24 Axe Knight x2, Level 24 Hunter x3, Level 24 Swordmaster x3, 
Level 24 Grappler x2, Level 24 Priest x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the extreme south, and Gallant is in the extreme west.

BATTLE:
Alright, very big area. If you want to save Gallant this is how I did it. I 
first went after the sword mast below me, then for the one above because he 
had HP Absorb, then went straight for that stupid archer. So long as youíre 
higher leveled, evade a few attacks, and donít take any criticals, you should 
be fine. Afterwards, send Gallant east to climb up the stone bricks. Sending 
him the other way would wake up that entire side of the map and Gallant 
wouldnít stand a chance. With the rest of your party, have them kill the 3 
enemies in front of them, and then wait for Gallant in front of that house, 
surprisingly, the enemies in front wonít come after you.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
At the top, as you head towards the enemies on the grass section, you should 
see the concrete section to your left. Part of the concrete sticks out a 
little farther than the other, resulting in a corner on the grass level that 
you can search, hiding in that corner (HT. 38) is a >VITAL NUT<. On the 
bottom level where Gallant starts, head down to the bottom of the stairs and 
look to your east, youíll see what looks like a small house. 2 squares east 
of the door hides a >DAMASCUS AXE<.  From where Gallant starts, head up the 
steps, 1 square south of the northwest corner hides a >BALM<.

Awesome, I found the new equipment extremely useful, there are a ton of 
things you can fuse now that you have those Rank 7 weapons and armor. 
However, I was short on money, so I equipped the 6 rich wallets that I made 
earlier and went to complete floor 27 of the catacombs. Using a 6 person team 
attack 2 times to kill 2 enemies, plus finishing off the rest of the enemies 
all while equipped with rich wallets on all my characters, I got a heafty 
103,600, ooohhhh yaaaa!!

Now itís shop time!

I upgraded everyones weapons and made the following fusions;

Turban + Platinum = Fubuki (Spero) - I only had 1 turban so I only made 1
Scimitar + Scimitar = Trident (Grey)

In case youíre wondering I hardly ever wear armor, since itís so heavy and 
always increases move. Later in the game when our STR is higher it gets 
easier to wear armor.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 25 Spirit x6, Level 25 Elementor x5
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Balm, Philosopher Robe, Philosophy Staff
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start at the south portion of the map.

BATTLE:
You wonít be attacked until you pass through the canyon entrance. Send Linea 
to the east at the start, youíll see a place where you can climb up, that way 
she can take out the enemies at the top earlier and with stronger firepower 
then she would from the bottom. They can use team attacks so be careful. The 
trouble with this map is reaching the enemies, if you donít have Jump+1 by 
now through equipment or skill set up, then youíre a sitting duck. Keep Prier 
and Spero together and send them west, and send Adara and Grey east towards 
Linea, let Gallant clean up the enemies on the ground. 

The 4 enemies at the north end of the map, wonít bother you, until you pass 
the second narrow passage. So once youíve killed the other enemies, get 
together and move north to engage the last 4.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Once you enter the canyon, look to your west, youíll see a narrow ledge with 
green grass (Ht.27). On the edge closest to where you entered, youíll find a 
>PHILOSOPHER ROBE<.  When you enter through the canyon, continue going north, 
on your current level, pass through the little gap between ledges, then go 
west, there is a spot between 2 ledges and a high wall which contains a 
>BALM<. Now, instead of going west at that last spot, continue a little 
further and head east, you should see a small gap, itís hiding a 
>PHILOSOPHY STAFF<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Depending on your stats, you could probably rank up to the 3rd rank. If you 
decide to rank up, you may need to fuse some rank up items. Teach youíre 
characters their 3rd Action Skill for the next boss battle.

Q68)
QUEST NAME: Fence Building
REQUIREMENTS: STR is whatís required for this quest.
DESCRIPTION 1: I want a fence built around the village for protection. The 
weak need not apply.
DESCRIPTION 2: I failed at level 27 with 97 STR. I used 50AP to increase my 
strength to 98, and I succeeded. I succeeded on my second playthrough at 
level 28 with 98 STR again.

For the next battle, I recommend being at least level 29. The boss has a 
massive AOE spell that can do tremendous damage if you are low leveled. Heís 
got a lot of HP and very good EVA, so equip the ACC UP zone skill and try to 
hit him from behind.

When youíre ready head for Ventus Shrine

ENEMIES: Level 27 Great Spirit: Wind
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Ventus!
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Heroís Emblem, *Golden Apple, *Five Rings, *Glass Eye
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Not needed since I havenít been able to find any items on the "Shrine" maps.

BATTLE:
I recommend keeping your party close together, since his AOE spell is so big 
that heís going to hit you anyways, so might as well be close together so you 
can heal everyone right? My Spero was level 28 and took 125 damage from the 
attack. My Linea was level 31 and took 99 damage from it. Also my Linea had 
only a 57% chance of connecting from the front of the boss, but 100% from all 
other sides.

On your first turn, send everyone a couple steps DOWN, that way the boss will 
have to move from that upper position. Once he does, start climbing to the 
top, then unleash some of your best skills. Make sure to check the HIT % 
before you do, since itís hard to tell which is the front and which is the 
back of this boss, so before you use your skill, make sure your attacking 
from his back. Finish him off with a team attack. I donít think team attacks 
can be guarded against.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Havenít found any. It would be very difficult to describe too, considering 
the map layout.

ENEMIES: Level 26 Armored Knight x5, Level 26 Master Alchemist x2, Level 26 
Golem x2, Level 26 Priest x1
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Silver Anklet, Coin, Oak Shoes, Smelling Salt
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Let the bridge be a north/south indicator, and weíll let Speroís starting 
location be the north side this time.


BATTLE:
2 armored knights to the south and the enemies to your west will approach you 
to start. Take out the master alchemist to start, as his status effects can 
be trouble. After those enemies are killed, the rest of the enemies will 
start towards you. Use Linea and Adaraís magic to get rid of the Golems asap, 
and send the guys in to finish them off if need be, otherwise have them go 
straight for the master alchemists. Once the golems are out of the way, itís 
pretty easy from there on. 

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start head east behind the castle structure, and check in 
between the 2 pieces of stone sticking out of the wall, you will find a 
>SILVER ANKLET<. From where you start, head west past the 3 pillars and onto 
a platform with 3 windows, the end of that platform hides a >COIN<. From the 
start, face the bridge (south), it consists of 2 rows, on the west row, 2 
squares south of the river youíll find >OAK SHOES< (Iím assuming the 
programmers forgot to change this item, cause at this point in the game itís 
a pretty terrible hidden item). From where you start head down the stairs to 
your east. Further east youíll see 3 pillars, the easternmost pillar hides a 
>SMELLING SALT<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

***After the battle, make a quick stop at Aphan. If you met all the 
requirements for recruiting Tia and read all 12 letters, she should be there. 
If youíre not getting a scene, the try either:

1) completing the next set of quests and checking again
2) completing a floor in the catacombs and checking again.
3) complete the story portion at Silva then check Silva again, she may be 
there

Tia is one of my favourite characters, sheís actually really strong, and in 
my last playthrough, she had a movement of 5 near the end of the game!! Plus 
I think her battle cries are cute.

We have 2 quests to do.

!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

Yeah the levels caught up with me, so letís head for the Catacombs. I 
recommend being level 28-29 for the next battle, itíll make things easier. I 
myself leveled up to 30, and Iíll be getting up to 36 pretty soon because I 
have this feeling a new Mock Battle is just around the corner.


Once youíre leveled and ready, letís head to Evarate.



*===========================================================================*
|                                EVARATE                                    |

CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS:
*POST BATTLE GIFTS: Silver Staff, Turban, Bright Mushroom
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southwest corner of the map, with Oma just slightly northeast 
of us.

BATTLE:
*I recommend trying to save Oma, Iím not sure if the outcome is the same, but 
I saved him and I got items after the battle, pretty nice ones too.

At the start, move Oma as far west as you can, heís level 27 and can take a 
hit, but that doesnít mean you want him to. The enemies will get a turn 
before him, and the squire used a special on Oma, hitting him for 300+ 
damage. Once Omaís out of the way, go straight for those squires, magic works 
really well on spearmen and armored knights to abuse it here.

The enemies at the bottom wonít budge until you come down the steps. Try and 
creep up to the enemies below, there are 4 golems and if youíre careful, the 
2 in the back wonít notice you until youíve killed the front 2. Use spells as 
usual and finish them with physicals or team attacks. Also get rid of that 
annoying swordmaster as heís got Fear + 20% on his physicals. Once theyíve 
been taken care of, finish off the last 2 golems.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
In the far northeast corner of the map, on the lower level, youíll see a 
small house. 1 square south of the window youíll find a >LIGHT ARMOR<. On the 
lower level youíll see 3 pillars, the corner of wall under those pillars 
hides a >BALM<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


*Level 45 of the Catacombs is now open*

Youíll be fighting 2 battles in a row next so make sure youíre prepared, I 
leveled up to 31 and got Tia up to 30

ranks in this battle, Iím not sure if itís based on your current level.
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Balm x2, Counter Guard, Yggdrasil Seed
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the northwest portion of the map

BATTLE:
Either way you go at the beginning will have you fight some uphill battles. I 
went up to start cause I figured I may as well get it over with early. Head 
on up and quickly rush the sage, then have Linea pick off the archer. 
Surround the general with Spero and Grey, and donít let him get to Prier. 
Once youíve cleared the way up the slope, then the hard part of the fight is 
over.

Notice those 2 generals south of the large hill your on, well you can just 
sit there with Linea and snipe away at them and the archer. The archer can do 
the same to you, but with less power and no healer to help him. Once youíve 
cleared the 3 enemies below, head east and south down the sloping path, 
finally down the steps to the west all the way to the bottom. If you cleared 
out the enemies above, the one below should come towards you, so donít go ALL 
THE WAY down, let them come to you to have a height advantage. 

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, move onto the small wooden steps, a >COUNTER GUARD< is 
hiding there. In the southwest corner of the map, youíll see 3 trees, place 
your cursor on the middle tree, then move 1 square east, that square (HT. 22) 
is hiding an >YGGDRASIL SEED<. In the southwest corner of the map (HT. 20) 
thereís a >BALM<. In the northeast corner of the map there are 3 trees, the 
eastern most tree has a >BALM< on its south side.

ENEMIES: Level 29 Wight (Spirit) x6, Level 29 Grand Master x4
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Silver Staff, Aged Gauntlets
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southwest corner of the map.

BATTLE:
Ok this battle is a bit annoying, I suggest you head east to start. Also I 
suggest you donít use Adara in this battle, unless sheís your primary healer. 
Reason being is that the enemies are not weak to magic, and sheís not that 
strong physically, for that reason I chose Tia for this battle. The female 
grand masters (pink) have that lightning spell, the males (grey) donít, but 
the real threat here are the spirits. At a higher rank and with an area 
attack, they should be your primary concern.

Every enemy except for the top 4 will come at you right away. Just an FYI, 
Iím at level 31 and 2 person team attacks from them were doing 200-300 
damage, so donít let them gang up on you.

Before you head for the top I suggest leaving a MALE grand master alive, this 
should prevent the enemies above from coming at you early, and give you a 
chance to get up there and on even ground. Once you are up there, dispatch 
one of the Wight enemies asap, cause if they gang up they can do a lot of 
damage with their spells. Use any and all remaining team attacks to finish 
off the enemies.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
On the wooden deck where you started the last battle you can find a >SILVER 
STAFF< in the southeast corner of it. Head to the northwest corner of the 
map, north of the tree you can find a pair of >AGED GAUNTLETS<.

*I only found those 2 items in both my playthroughs, however, I read from the 
forums that there was a beast ring on this map. I checked every single square 
on the map, as I do for all the maps, but never found it?? Hereís the thread, 
Iím not sure how reliable the poster is, considering he/she seems to be going 
off memory cause the beast ring isnít even an item in this game and they 
couldnít remember one of the other items. Not to mention they indicate 
finding a rank 7 boot in porta, of which, there is no such thing, itís a rank 
1 oak shoe.

*I did receive a beast fang, but that was a post battle item not a hidden 
item.

!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

Ok so for the next boss battle, weíre going to want to be at least level 31 
but 32 would be better. Also teach all 6 of your party members the anti-stone 
skill, youíll thank me later.

So fuse 4 of the following (Adara and Spero already have the skill available 
for purchase, just spend the SP)

Silver Staff + Heroís Emblem = Softer Side (ALL)

CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Humus
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Solid Soul, *Eden Seed
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Not needed since I havenít been able to find any items on the "Shrine" maps.

BATTLE:
I recommend keeping your party close together, since his AOE spell is so big 
that heís going to hit you anyways, so might as well be close together so you 
can heal everyone right? My Spero was level 32 and took 110 damage from the 
attack. My Linea was level 34 and took 77 damage from it. Also my Linea had 
only an 80% chance of connecting from the front of the boss, but 100% from 
all other sides.

Same as last time, on your first turn, send everyone a couple steps DOWN, 
that way the boss will have to move from that upper position. Once he does, 
start climbing to the top, then unleash some of your best skills. Make sure 
to check the HIT % before you do, since itís hard to tell which is the front 
and which is the back of this boss, so before you use your skill, make sure 
your attacking from his back. Finish him off with a team attack. I donít 
think team attacks can be guarded against.

*NOTE: this guy can counter from 2 spaces away. My Linea was standing behind 
Spero, and Linea attacked, and Humus countered, hitting both Spero and Linea.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Havenít found any. It would be very difficult to describe too, considering 
the map layout.

ENEMIES: Boss Ė CROIRE (Level 31 Sniper), Level 30 Overlordís Guard x6, Level 
30 Blackbelt x2, Level 30 Sage x2, Level 30 High Priest x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Croire
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Overkill Croire!
HIDDEN ITEMS: Blessed Fruit x2
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southeast corner of the map, with the boss in the northeast.

BATTLE:
Head towards the bridge, and take out the sage quickly with Linea, he has a 
powerful large area spell. Send Gallant to take out the nearest Overlordís 
guard; these guards are significantly more powerful then the blackbelts, so 
be careful. Once youíve taken care of the first group of enemies, the second 
group will come towards you. Try not to get caught on the stairs leading up 
to the second hut. The bridge is narrow, so have your strongest characters 
lead from the front. I put Gallant and Grey next to each other at the front 
to take out the enemies, with Linea in the back for support. Once your done 
with the enemies around the second hut, the enemies at the bottom will start 
towards you.

For this group, try to get onto the stairs leading down to the ground, to 
give yourself an edge, have Linea snipe at the High Priest to prevent the 
healing. Now onto the boss.

NOTE: If youíve taught Prier the "Bless" skill, she can power up your party 
right before you team attack the boss.

I recommend using a decoy member here. Send Gallant down the stairs, and 
Croire will use his special attack from range. His special can hit multiple 
members so if you lure him into using it on 1 member you can simply heal with 
Prier right after and not worry about multiple injuries. After he uses it 3 
times heíll run out of MP, and now all you have to be careful about is his HP 
Absorb Zone Skill which drained 220 HP from my Level 34 Spero. Best thing to 
do is lure him to ground level, then quickly surround him with 4 characters. 
This way, his Zone Skill wonít affect them, and he also canít attack them 
because heís an archer. Then bring down his HP to about 1500, and use a team 
attack lead by Spero, preferably from behind, to finish him off.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, notice the hut directly north of you. Head around to 
the other side of it as far as you can go, the square at the end touching the 
hut, hides a >BLESSED FRUIT<. North of the stairs leading up to Croire, 
youíll see a small path, the easternmost square is hiding a >BLESSED FRUIT<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Spero really is becoming a "knight in shining armor" isnít he? Lineaís so 
lucky.

############################## END OF QUESTS ################################



Alright so after those quests you should have acquired a secret character, 
Jade. Jade is a pretty awesome character, heís very fast and has a very high 
critical rate. What do I mean by fast, well speed is measured by how quickly 
you regenerate AP and thus how early you get to act in the turn order. 

For example when a characters turn comes up, move 2 squares with the cursor 
and youíll see his picture move practically to the end of the turn order 
line. However, with Jade, you move those 2 spaces and he only has to wait 
until the very next person goes before he gets another turn. Abusing this is 
a great strategy, and one that works significantly better with Jade. 

Ok letís head to Scyllaís Breath shall we.

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 31 Wight (Spirit) x7, Level 31 Grand Master x5
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Blessed Fruit, Lotion
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southeast corner of the map.

BATTLE:
Check the spells of the Wightís, some of them have upgrades ("Explode"), this 
is an area attack, so your best bet would be to eliminate them first. As 
always, donít stress over the grand masters. Once you kill the first 3 
enemies, head north, the enemies to the northeast will start coming towards 
you once you pass the large tree with no top. Again focus on the Wightís. 
Once theyíre gone, the enemies on the dock will come straight for you. 
Careful, this grand master also has the Explode spell.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Look to the northern large tree with no top, it is surrounded by light green 
bushes. The southernmost light green bush is hiding a >BLESSED FRUIT< to its 
west (Ht. 22). On the dock youíll notice a small post stick out, the square 
itís on is hiding a >LOTION<.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


No new quests ?

Next boss has a sleep zone effect, not as worrisome as stone. The 4 squares 
surrounding the boss isnít affected by the zone, so feel free to protect 
against it or not.

Off to the Aqua Shrine



*===========================================================================*
|                               AQUA SHRINE                                 |

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 33 Great Spirit: Water
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Aqua!
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Knight Crest
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Not needed since I havenít been able to find any items on the "Shrine" maps.

BATTLE:
Same strategy applies here. I recommend keeping your party close together, 
since his AOE spell is so big that heís going to hit you anyways, so might as 
well be close together so you can heal everyone right? My Spero was level 36 
and took 115 damage from the attack. My Linea was level 37 and took 79 damage 
from it. 

On your first turn, send everyone a couple steps DOWN, that way the boss will 
have to move from that upper position. Once he does, start climbing to the 
top, then unleash some of your best skills. Make sure to check the HIT % 
before you do, since itís hard to tell which is the front and which is the 
back of this boss, so before you use your skill, make sure your attacking 
from his back. Finish him off with a team attack. I donít think team attacks 
can be guarded against.

These shrine battles are very similar arenít they?

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Havenít found any. It would be very difficult to describe too, considering 
the map layout.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Aspiring Fusionist 4 quest is available right now. Donít accept this quest 
yet, as it will be A LOT easier after we get rank 9 weapons to show up in the 
shops.

Head for Silva



*===========================================================================*
|                                  SILVA                                    |
|                                  C0837                                    |

ENEMIES: Level 32 Shadow x2, Level 32 Berserker x2, Level 32 Sniper x2, Level 
32 General x2, Level 32 Sage x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Balm, Blessed Fruit
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southwest corner of the map.

BATTLE:
This battle is actually pretty easy. From the start head east up the stairs 
and kill the 2 enemies. The enemies by the water wonít be able to get to you, 
since the AI is kind of dumb at times, however they can still team attack you 
from down there. The enemies to the north (higher up) wonít even budge until 
you kill the enemies in the water, so if youíve been damaged, heal up, and 
feel free to cast BLESS with Prier to prepare yourself for the other enemies 
(Bless lasts for the entire battle, the 20% increase is VERY nice). 

Once youíre ready I suggest heading up the western stairs and once the 
archers notice you, have Linea change targets and aim for them. Also be 
careful of the Berserker, he has a Fear Zone Skill.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start head east up the stairs, youíll see a torch and a barrel 
on this level. The square north of the barrel is hiding a >BLESSED FRUIT<. 
From where you start head east down into the water, that water consists of 3 
rows, keep to the southernmost row. As you cross the river, the last square 
before you reach land is hiding a >BALM<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Head for the Grave of Spirits when you are ready.

Personally I found the dialogue before the fight funny. Notice how Linea says 
that she understands what the spirits have to do and that she is prepared to 
fight, then the spirit pauses for a second, and then says "his line" like its 
already been scripted



*===========================================================================*
|                            GRAVE OF SPIRITS                               |
|                                 C0838                                     |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 33 Wight x8, Level 33 Grand Master x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Elixir, Salamander Tail, Wyrm Fang, Gnome Leggings, Smelling 
Salt.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southeast corner of the map.

BATTLE:
Right from the start youíll be facing off against 7 of the 11 enemies. Again, 
take out the spirits first and be sure to stay healed up. I brought Prier and 
Adara into this fight for healing, and Linea had and HP Recover zone skill. I 
also used Jade and Tia because they have good movement and low attack cost. 
This gave me a better chance of moving up to the enemy AND attacking them 
then say if I was using grey or gallant. If youíre able to handle those 7 
enemies, then the next 4 will be easy.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Alright itís been a while since weíve had a lot of items to find.
From where you start, jump up to the east and head for the very southeastern 
corner, you will find an >ELIXIR<. From where you start head west down the 
slope and towards the lava, you should see what looks like spikes sticking 
out of the ground. The spike closest to the lava has a >SALAMANDER TAIL<. 
From the start head west, keep going until you reach the southwest corner, 
you should see a small rock island surrounded by lava, hiding on this rock 
island is a >WYRM FANG<. From where you start head almost all the way north 
and you should see a small rock island surrounded by lava to your west, this 
island only has 2 squares, and one of them is hiding a >GNOME LEGGINGS<. Jump 
to the other side of that island now and jump up to the first ledge (height 
of 25). Staying on that height, head south, youíll come across a spike 
leaning off the edge, the square its touching hides a >SMELLING SALT<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


The next boss has attacks that can cause Fear, so you can equip your anti-fear
 skills if you want, but I would just use Priers zone skill. Spend the 200 SP 
for purify and your set.

Head for Flamma Shrine


*===========================================================================*
|                             FLAMMA SHRINE                                 |
|                                 C0839                                     |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Level 35 Great Spirit: Fire
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Flamma
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
POST BATTLE ITEMS: *Clay Jar, *Hawkeye
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Not needed since I havenít been able to find any items on the "Shrine" maps.

BATTLE:
Same strategy applies here. I recommend keeping your party close together, 
since his AOE spell is so big that heís going to hit you anyways, so might as 
well be close together so you can heal everyone right? My Spero was level 37 
and took 178 damage from the attack. My Linea was level 37 and took 161 
damage from it. 

On your first turn, send all your characters up to the top to meet up with 
each other. Keep your party close together so if the fear status connects, 
have Prier stand next to them to purify them. 
*NOTE: Prier needs to spend some AP in order to purify everyone. Depending on 
how much AP she spends she may not purify the whole group, so take this into 
account depending on how many have been afflicted with the status effect.

The boss likes to counter, surround him, and use your skills. His zone skill 
wonít affect you if you are right next to him. Be careful though since his 
physical attacks are a lot stronger than his special. Like the other shrine 
bosses, his counters are 2 squares long, so be careful when attacking with 
Linea, do so from an angle. Finish the boss off with a team attack.

Finally the last shrine battle.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Havenít found any. It would be very difficult to describe too, considering 
the map layout.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


*Level 50 of the Catacombs is now open*


Ok the next battle has a Special Condition, and since Linea wonít be 
participating in battle, we are going to need to make sure we are strong 
enough to overkill the boss. So recall what we fused a little while back.

Lotion + Aged Gauntlets = Power II (ALL except Tia)

If you fused these before, you should definitely equip them for this battle. 
I actually have never taken them off since I fused it a while back.

Also equip someone with that Wyrm Fang we found, it has a nice +21 to POW.

**I recommend being at least level 37 for this battle.
***Equip Anti-Stone on all members, Prier can purify this but it may be 
difficult for her to get a turn in time to purify everyone and have us follow 
up with a team attack for the overkill

ENEMIES: Boss - CROIRE (Level 35 Sniper), Level 34 Overlordís Guard x6, Level 
34 Golem x3, Level 34 Sniper x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Croire
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Overkill Croire
HIDDEN ITEMS: Blessed Fruit, Balm, Hachigane, *Goddess Earrings
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south portion of the map.

BATTLE:
If you donít want to be overwhelmed in this fight, you MUST be of higher 
level. Despite being 2-3 levels above him, he was still hitting my characters 
for 150-200 per hit and criticalling Spero for 300+.
At the start of battle, deploy your characters in a position so that Prier 
can bless all of them, make sure to include Avis in this. Also make sure to 
use up Avisís vigor nuts right away to lower his MOV.

Now wait for the Overlords guards to come to you, do not pursue them or you 
may wake up the golems and archers. Once you take care of them head west to 
meet up with the archer and the golem. If you have Adara at level 37, sheíll 
make short work of the golem. Once theyíre defeated head towards the 
northwest stairs but donít climb them, get close enough to lure the golem, 
archer, and 2 overlordís guards at the top. Once the guards start moving, 
Croire will follow. We want them to come to the bottom. The hardest part of 
this battle is dealing with Croire and luring him to the bottom, once youíve 
done that, surround him by creeping up to him and making sure your 
characterís turn STILL comes before Croire before ending your turn. Once 
youíve surrounded him bring his HP down to about 2000 to be safe. At level 37 
with Bless on all 6 party members and Spero initiating the team attack from 
behind, I was able to do 2200 damage.


HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, directly above you to the east there is what looks like 
a little building with 3 windows, the 2 windows that are spread apart make a 
little inlet in which you can find a >BLESSED FRUIT<. From where you start 
head northwest and up the stairs, at the top youíll see what looks like 2 
doors and a window, in the corner (in front of 1 of the doors) hides a 
>BALM<. Head to the northeast part of the map, there is a little passage in 
between the buildings on the upper level at the end of this passage hides a 
>HACHIGANE<.

*Items only accessible with Hermes Wing:
At the very north of the map there is a ledge that can only be reached with 
hermes wing (Ht. 30). The square directly in front of the door hides a pair 
of >GODDESS EARRINGS<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


After the scenes, Avis rejoins your party.

Ok thereís a quest we can do now. Iím not sure if this quest will disappear 
in chapter 5 so letís just do it now. Make sure youíre at least level 38, I 
thought I could do it at level 37, and Spero was killed on the first enemy 
attack (2 criticals).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start at the highest point of the map, for directions sake weíll call it 
the northwest.

BATTLE:
I recommend sending Linea towards the bridge and leaving her there the whole 
battle, she can snipe the enemies from below on both sides, however, priority 
goes to the High Priests. The enemies to the southwest will start climbing up 
once you start to climb down. Once you cross the stone bridge, the enemies 
below on the east side of the map will come towards you. Again, use Linea to 
weaken them, then have your other characters finish them off. Very easy 
battle.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
Place the cursor on the square just before the bridge (north side of the 
bridge). From that square, move your cursor 1 square east, causing you to 
drop off the cliff, the square you land on should be on Ht. 17 on the edge of 
the black abyss, that square hides a >BLESSED FRUIT<. From where you start, 
notice the large drop to your east. There will be a small platform consisting 
of 3 squares of Ht. 20. The middle square in the corner, is hiding a 
>FULL MOON<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


No new quests.

The next battle has a Special Condition, so you should be level 39 to make 
things easier on yourself. Also equip everyone with anti-stone, and someone 
with the full moon accessory you just found.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south of the map, with Nebula in the north.

BATTLE:
At the start group your party together and use Prier to cast Bless, donít 
forget to cast it on her again afterwards, this way overkilling the boss will 
be easier. Although the bridge is narrow, the battle is quite simple until 
you reach Nebula. Now use Linea to weaken the archers. Remember to use the 
"creep up" method, ending your turn so that you still have a turn before the 
enemy, as this will help you get close enough to finish off the archers that 
Linea weakened. Take each group of enemies 1 at a time. If you get too close 
to one groups starting position, you may wake up the group behind them, so be 
careful.

Once you reach Nebula, surround her, and start bringing down her HP. Her 
special can cause sleep and darkness, but if you have Priers Purify then you 
have nothing to worry about. I took her down to just under 2000HP before I 
Team attacked her, doing 2200 damage for the overkill.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
On the east railing/ledge next to Nebulaís starting position you can find a 
>BLESSED FRUIT< on the square touching the castle wall. On the west 
railing/ledge next to Nebulaís starting position you can find a >BALM<. 
Directly behind Nebulaís starting position, inside the castle door as far 
back as you can go hides a >HOLY WATER<.

*for those who were curious about whether or not anything was on TOP of the 
castle, unfortunately there are no items up there.

Aww, Spero the sweet talker. I think Prier likes Spero now....get in line 
sister.

Once youíre ready head for Lacuna Ruins.


!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

You guessed it, itís that time again, head for the Catacombs and level up to 
level 41 to make the next overkill easier. It will also help to prepare you 
for the next battles cause there are 2 in a row again.

ENEMIES: Level 37 Diablo x3, Level 37 High Priest x3, Brandish x2, Level 37 
Devout Fanatic x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
HIDDEN ITEMS: Blessed Fruit, Balm
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the southeast corner of the map.

BATTLE:
Head west and dispose of the fanatics. Then start climbing the steps, the 
high priest and brandish enemies should come at you. The high priests have no 
attack spells making this battle even easier. Just head on up and slaughter 
everyone.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start head to the southwest corner, youíll see a flower bed, 
the square in the exact center hides a >BLESSED FRUIT<. At the north end of 
the map youíll see a little building with an open door, the square directly 
in front of that open door hides a >BALM<.

For those who are curious, the 2 pillars to the west have no items on them. 
The pillar to the northwest also doesnít have an item, unbelievable.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



!!!LEVEL UP TIME!!!

You guessed it, itís that time again, head for the Catacombs and level up to 
level 41 to make the next overkill easier, but I recommend at least 42 so as 
to not be overwhelmed in the 2nd battle. It will also help to prepare you for 
the next battles because there are 2 in a row again.

I also fused some equipment, but some items I had in my inventory from either 
regular post battle items, catacomb drops, or hidden item finds.

Brass Knuckles + Trident = Plutoís Axe (Gallant)
 -> (Brass Knuckles = Holy Water + Blue Ribbon) - battle
Agate + Titan Gauntlets = Arms Crusher (Jade)
 -> (Agate = Trident + Dragon Tooth) - catacomb
Tyrant Crown + Kintoki Axe = Twin Dragon Rod (Prier)
 -> (Tyrant Crown = Agate + Agate)
 -> (Agate = Dragon Tooth + Trident) - catacombs
Amber + Holy Water = Rain Maker (Linea) - catacomb/hidden
Hawkís Claw (Tia) - Lottery
Kintoki Axe + Fubuki = Getsu-Ei x2 (Spero) - catacombs	

**Finally, I recommend having Gallant or Grey with the MP Recover Zone Skill, 
that way you can heal over and over again with Prier in the second battle, 
which is pretty tough. And equip anti-stone, cause getting stoned with a 
stupid 10% chance in the 2nd battle cause my Prier to die.


Once you are ready head for Lacuna Shrine.

ENEMIES: Boss - LUMENA and NEBULA, Level 38 Diablo x2, Level 38 Devout 
Fanatic x2, Level 38 High Priest x2, Level 38 Sniper x2, Level 38 Shadow x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat All Enemies
SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Overkill either Nebula or Lumena.
HIDDEN ITEMS: Blessed Fruit, Balm x2, Lotion
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south portion of the map.

BATTLE:
At the very beginning cast Bless with Prier to make this battle even easier. 
The north end of the map is really the only difficult part of the battle, 
reaching it is easy as there are not very many enemies and they are spread 
out. Feel free to separate your party, 3 on each side, and then converge once 
you reach the north end. Reason Iím going into the water is because if you 
take out the Devout Fanatics, it will wake up the north part of the map 
including both bosses. Take out the enemies the same way you have been, 
sniping with Linea and cleaning up with the rest. Again, the priests have no 
attack magic, so feel free to kill them off first to avoid the healing they 
do.

Be careful around Nebula, as her HP/MP Damage Zone Skill can take off 200+ HP 
per turn, surround her so she canít move and thus you wonít have to worry 
about it. You only have to kill one of them, I always choose Nebula because I 
just canít bring myself to attack Lumena. I brought her down to 1800 HP then 
unleashed a team attack. I believe 1500 may be her escape value. Similarly if 
you choose to overkill Lumena bring her down to the same HP value. Make sure 
to take care of the enemies before confronting the boss, the extra damage 
they cause will add up, even though I was 3 levels above the other enemies, 
they were still doing around 100 damage to me.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start head west into the water, youíll see 3 lily pads, if you 
look closely, youíll see a tree stump next to the smallest lily pad, that 
square on top of the tree stump hides a >BLESSED FRUIT<. We have 2 water 
sections, the east and the west. In the EAST water section head to the 
northwest corner to find a >BALM<. In front of the door where Lumena and 
Nebula start are 2 squares right next to each other, one has a >BALM< the 
other has a >LOTION<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

During the scenes, Lumena actually Joins your party, but donít use her for 
the next battle.

Next battle...

*===========================================================================*

|                                 C0845                                     |

ENEMIES: Boss - NEBULA (Level 40 Apostle), Level 39 Diablo x4, Level 39 
Devout Fanatic x2, Level 39 High Priest x3, Level 39 Sniper x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Nebula
HIDDEN ITEMS: Balm, Amber, Sonic Staff, Beast Armor
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south portion of the map.

BATTLE:
Dispose of the 3 enemies to start, then head towards the western scaffold.
I donít recommend running up the scaffold, why? Because thatís what I did and 
as a result, read below:

[The Diablo up there has the stone zone skill; if you head up the scaffold 
and damage the enemies the priest from the center scaffold where Nebula is 
will heal the enemies on the west scaffold causing the entire center scaffold 
to wake up.] 

So why donít you simply wait for them to come down? Because itís nearly 
impossible to lure the archer because of the stupid AI, and using Linea to 
attack/kill anyone from below will still cause the priest in the center to 
heal them thus waking up the middle anyways, and thus Nebula will start using
her magic, followed by jumping down, and youíll have to battle her early, if 
youíre lucky the priest wonít ruin everything for you. Oh and to top it all 
off, the stupid priest has arrow dodge. My Linea was 3 levels above him and 
still only had a 60% of hitting.

You may want to try completely ignoring the west scaffold, but thereís an 
item up there so I wanted it. This has been the toughest battle so far for 
me, and I already had to restart once and redo BOTH fights.

Once youíve gotten rid of the enemies and youíre finally in battle with 
Nebula the battle has pretty much been won. Bring down her HP and team attack 
to finish her off, you have to bring her HP to 0 here in order for the battle 
to end.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
From where you start, jump onto the small east pillar (right next to you) to 
receive a >BALM<. On top of the western scaffold, in the southeast corner of 
its platform hides an >AMBER<. On top of the eastern scaffold, in the 
northwest corner of its platform hides a >SONIC STAFF<. North of the scaffold 
where Nebula starts there is a small platform, the center square touching the 
scaffold (Ht. 35) hides a >BEAST ARMOR<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



Afterwards we get a touching scene from our 2 heros.

Before doing all the quests, Iím going to complete the next 3 story battles 
to get our final 2 secret characters, yes I know itís late, and as much as I 
wish there was some secret dungeons to use these characters for other then 
the catacombs, Iíll just have to accept it. But in order to get our first 
secret character, we need to complete some specific quests. 

So run around the map until you are in the month of December, Q104 will show 
up. Accept the quest and run around again until January, then DURING the 
month of January head for Shanty Town. Once thatís done Q106 will show up, 
complete Q106, then we are ready to go.

So equip Spero with his new weapon and lets head for Castle Grounds.



*===========================================================================*

ENEMIES: Boss - ECHIDNA (Level 41 Swordsman), Level 40 Overlordís Guard x3, 
Level 40 General x3, Level 40 Sage x3, Level 40 Sniper x2, Level 40 Brandish 
x1, Level 40 Gladiator x1 (this is wrong in the game, it should say Brandish, 
since heís equipped with a Katana)
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Echidna
HIDDEN ITEMS: Blessed Fruit, Glass Shoes, Black Steel
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south, the castle door will be north.

BATTLE:
Cast Bless with Prier to start the battle.
The first 3 enemies + the Sage will come towards you at the start, again, 
take the sage out with Linea. The guards will team attack you whenever 
theyíre given the opportunity so take them out asap. Feel free to ignore the 
enemies on the west side of the map, but know that once Echidna moves, some 
of them will move, so if you can take out Echidna quickly, you wont have to 
worry to much, but if you cant then I suggest luring the western enemies 
BEFORE getting too close to Echidna. 

As you approach Echidna, the stupid archer above will start sniping at you, 
and apparently the game is made so that he can attack us with a bow from 
above, but we CANíT attack him with a bow from below. And also the 2 sages 
will also come at you, the one from above has Hermes wing, so heíll just jump 
down and start using a strong spell. The western general, archer and 2 
brandish didnít even move during the battle. Your required to completely 
drain Echidnaís HP so donít worry about having to team attack her before 
then. If youíve successfully completed all her requirements, then she becomes 
your ally.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
On the east side of the map, youíll see some brick steps leading down into 
the water. The lowest step (Ht. 29) is hiding a >BLESSED FRUIT<. Place your 
cursor on the center square directly in front of the castle door, then move 
back 1 square, you should be on the upper level (Ht. 58), that square is 
hiding a pair of >GLASS SHOES<. From that square with the glass shoes, move 5 
squares east and 1 square north to find a >BLACK STEEL<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Alright so weíve got 1 more secret character to get. But first letís take 
care of that annoying archer.

Equip anti-sleep skills and head for the courtyard.


*===========================================================================*
|                               COURTYARD                                   |

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss - CROIRE (Level 42 Sniper), Level 41 Overlordís Guard x3, Level 
41 General x4, Level 41 Sage x3, Level 41 Sniper x2
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Croire
HIDDEN ITEMS: Balm, Blessed Fruit, Viking Helmet
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south, with the massive stairs in the north.

BATTLE:
Again, start by casting bless with Prier.

Take out the General to your west, and start heading east around the water 
taking enemies out along the way. A lot of the enemies have counter 30%, but 
donít get too reckless, since that 30% for some reason is more like 75%. 
After you take care of the enemies by the massive stairs, itís time to start 
creeping west in hopes of luring Croireís guards. By the time I killed all 
his guards, he had only taken 1 turn. Be careful, as his special is pretty 
strong, it did 450 damage to my level 43 Linea. If you equipped anti-sleep 
skills then his zone effect wonít be a bother, if not, you need to surround 
him with 4 characters so you donít fall asleep, but seeing as heís an archer, 
thatís the best strategy regardless. 

You donít have to worry about team attacking him early as there is no HP 
limit to reach. You are required to take him down to 0 HP to end the fight.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS: 
From where you start notice the stairs to your west, on the grass jammed in 
the corner next to the stairs hides a >BALM<. East of the massive stairs is a 
tree, place your cursor east of the tree (grey square) then move north 3 
squares to find a >VIKING HELMET<. Notice the pillar where Croire starts, 
place your cursor on the pillar and move 1 square south to drop beside the 
stairs, in that corner hides a >BLESSED FRUIT<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the battle, make sure you are at least level 43 before fighting the 
next one.


When you are ready, head for the Grand Hall.


*===========================================================================*
|                               GRAND HALL                                  |

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss - VISER (Level 43 Sage), Level 42 Golem x4, Level 42 Sage x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Viser
HIDDEN ITEMS: Holy Water, Yggdrasil Fruit, Fruit of Lore
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south of the map with Viser to the north.

BATTLE:
Again, cast bless with Prier.
The western golem and sage, and the eastern golem and sage will be your first 
opponents, so let them come down to you. Time your movements by creeping up 
to them so you can unleash some good attacks on them. Once those 4 enemies 
are gone, Viser will come straight for you. I recommend defeating the 
remaining enemies QUICKLY or heíll team attack with them. A 2 person team 
attack (Viser+ Golem) did 800 damage to my Gallant; A 2 person team attack 
(Viser + Sage) did only 400 to my Prier, so get rid of those Golems!

Once you are ready to take on Viser be careful of his 50% counter rate, I was 
level 44 and it still did 350+ damage to me. So try to use Linea to bring his 
HP down as much as you can, if you need help use skills, but make sure the 
HIT % is high enough. If you decided to surround him, be warned that he can 
attack 3 times from a standstill and will most likely kill whoever he 
targets. Be sure to stay healed up with Prier and use a team attack to finish 
him off. The only way for the battle to end is to bring his HP down to 0, so 
donít worry about him running away.

Once youíve won, provided you met all his requirements, he will join you.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
In the southwest corner of the map hides a >HOLY WATER<, youíll need to go 
around the broken pillar to get there. In the southeast corner of the map 
hides an >YGGDRASIL FRUIT<, you will need the Hermes Wing skill to get it, 
itís on the upper level (Ht. 28) behind the pillars. The square directly 
behind Viser (between the 2 pillars) is hiding a >FRUIT OF LORE<.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Getting Viser in this game makes me feel the same way I do after watching an 
AWESOME anime, only for the ending to suck and for there to be no season 2.



Ok NOW we are ready!! So chapter 5 is mainly a Quest Chapter, as you can see 
by the number of quests that have shown up. Not only that, but more quests 
will continue to show up as you progress, whether it be with story battles or 
catacombs. Also the order in which some of the later quests appear will be 
dependent on which quests you complete first. 

Also some quests will repeatedly show up, such as Traveling Merchant 5, I 
suggest resetting until you get Dark Armors as they are rank 14 items and can 
be used in fusions.

Finally, some quests are not even possible to win without leveling up first, 
so check to see the enemy levels (below) before accepting a quest. So shall 
we get started?

############################## END OF QUESTS ################################


Ok so if you completed ALL those quests, Iím sure youíve spent countless 
hours away from the main game, not to mention, youíre most likely at 
Level 99. However if you chose not level up to that level, then I will make 
the rest of the walkthrough based on the recommended levels for the final 3 
battles, which all occur one after the other.

So before we move on the remaining battles, make sure youíve accomplished 
everything that you want to in the main game, as this will be your last time 
on the world map.

For the final 3 battles, I recommend being at least level 46-47 to make 
things easier. Once you are ready, head for Barrage (Throne Room). 

***The 3rd and final battle of the game, is against a boss whose level is 
entirely determined by whichever character has the highest level in your 
party.




*===========================================================================*
|                         BARRAGE (THRONE ROOM)                             |
|                                 C0849                                     |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss - DIGNUS (Level 44 Tyrant), Level 43 Overlordís Guard x3, 
Level 43 General x3, Level 43 Sniper x2.
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Dignus
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
We start in the south of the map with Dignus to the north.

BATTLE:
At the start, cast bless with Prier. Now from where you start, you can move 
up to attack the 3 generals but doing so may wake up the archers, so just let 
the generals come to you. Once those 3 are dead move Linea into position to 
kill off one of the archers (do the "creep up and end turn" method). Then 
have her fire 2 shots to kill one of the archers. 

As soon as the first 3 generals are killed, Dignus and the rest of the 
enemies will start to move. Be careful around Dignus, he has some nasty 
skills and watch out for their team attacks, make sure you check each enemies 
yellow range before deciding on a move. Dignus attacks have wide range and 
can hit many of your characters at once, so once you kill off the other 
enemies, surround Dignus so that you can heal everyone at the same time if 
need be. Also his Zone Skill is Movement Cost+, so you donít have to worry if 
youíve surrounded him, as youíre not going to be moving anyways.


HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
None.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MISSION COMPLETE +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Next Battle begins....

*===========================================================================*
|                              CATHEDRAL 2F                                 |
|                                 C0850                                     |
*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss - NEBULA (Level 45 Apostle), Level 43 Diablo x3, Level 43 High 
Priest x3
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat Nebula
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
Again you start in the south of the map with Nebula to your immediate north.

BATTLE:
Ok so this battle is actually easier then the last one. Thereís only 5 
enemies + the boss, but all of them (except the boss) can use team attacks. 
If you donít move at all from your starting position then only the 3 diablos 
and the closest High Priest will come towards you. As soon as those 4 enemies 
are killed, regardless of you positioning, Nebula and the other high priest 
will begin attacking you. Nebula wont even move, but sheíll cast Dark 
Judgement from where she stands, she can only cast it 3 times, keep everyone 
close so you can heal, as she can hit everyone with that spell regardless of 
location. Rush up to her and unleash your best physicals, her zone skill is 
useless, as skill at this point in the game arenít very effective.

Once you kill her, sheíll revive immediately with 1 HP, so just knock her 
down again. Not a hard battle.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
None.

*===========================================================================*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENEMIES: Boss - DIES IRAE (Level ?? God of Destruction)
CONDITIONS OF VICTORY: Defeat the God of Destruction
HIDDEN ITEMS: None
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:
None

BATTLE:
**Ok so once again, the bosses level is determined by the highest leveled 
character in your party. In my first playthrough, Spero was at level 56 and 
Tia was at level 57, and the final boss was level 57). This time my 
characters are at level 99, so the boss is also at level 99. At level 99 he 
had the following stats:

HP 15,000
MP 999
STR 252
STM 295
INT 220
RES 114
TEC 290
AGL 13
LCK 13

Action Skills
Judgement, Bane, Spirit Away, Transcendence

Support Skills
Auto Counter, Acc + 30%, Anti-All

I could have sworn he has MORE HP in my first playthrough, when he was at 
level 57, oh well, if anyone can confirm that his HP doesnít actually change 
with his level, please email me.

Anyways, this battle is extremely easy just surround him, use Linea from far 
way and team attack him to death. I killed him before he even got a turn, and 
on my first playthrough (level 57) he only got 1 turn.

HIDDEN ITEM LOCATIONS:
None.

First I would like to thank scrye493 for his work regarding the recruitment 
of secret characters. In both my playthroughs I was able to recruit all 4 
secret characters. Iím not sure if his "do only 5 out of 9 overkills" are 
correct for Viser, so I recommend doing 9 out of 9 to always be sure.

Iíd also like to thank Gundam4Fun and CidThunderGod for their fusion faqs, 
they were immensely helpful in my playthroughs. 

And of course Atlus for a wonderful game.

Finally Iíd like to thank you, the reader, I hope you enjoyed my guide, and I 
hope to write more for you all in the future.
