 To navigate much easier through this guide, I added the search system, which
works just by following these simple steps:

- Highlight the "Section Code" of the section which you wish to go and copy it
  (CTRL+C).

- Press CTRL+F to bring up the search sub-menu.

- Paste (CTRL+V) the "Section Code" and press ENTER twice to be where you
  wanted to be. Just like magic!

 My Section Codes were made as precise as possible, and I also prefer this
method instead of having you scroll 30 min through this huge guide looking for
the section you want to go.

~~~/_/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\_____________________________________/

 Hello everyone and welcome to my Tales of Eternia (Destiny II) guide for the
PSP and PSX. This was the very first Tales of... game I played and directly
fell in love with the battle system, as well as the story that develops in 2
worlds. Being that I loved the series so much, I then discovered Tales of
Symphonia for the GCN.

 I bought that game the same day I bought my GameCube and I started the FAQing
chapter in my life with this game, Tales of Symphonia. Later on, I bought
(well, my friend bought me both) Tales of the Abyss and Legendia, both being
really good games. Anyway, enough of me and my personal stuff and let's get
started with the guide, shall we?

 There are some things I want to address, so please read the following
paragraphs:

- I'm writing this for free and because I love this game (just like I mentioned
above). If you are looking for tons of eloquent ways for me to say "move here
and start a battle", you are going to be so disappointed. This guide is way,
way too big to begin with, and lofty language does not help.

- If you take a quick scan thru my guide, you won't find the explanations for
battle basics, main menu, saving-loading, etc. Why, you ask? Well, because the
game manual and in-game tutorials do a perfect job explaining the battle
system.

- The usage of abbreviations. When you're in my place or any who writes for
GameFAQ's or any other page, writing a guide for any game of such proportions,
people complain about using too many abbreviations. You have no idea how
helpful abbreviations are. It also looks better in every aspect you think.

- My guide is not the only one out there. I'm not forcing you to use mine, but
if you use others, then you better be prepared for lots of spoilers, which will
ruin the element of surprise for you, as well as to get lost in the walkthrough
(like what happened to me when I tried to use some of the FAQ's in the site).
Also, people that have problems with how I write my guide are in great
minority.

- The spoilers are great issues in making guides. I am a player of the game,
just like you are. The first time I played through this game was completely
by myself. I didn't read any spoilers, therefore nothing was spoiled for me.
All the story's ups and downs that were supposed to surprise me had such
effect. And I really think it's not fair spoiling such story elements to you.

 With all this said, let's start with the guide! Enjoy  this guide and remember
that it is a spoiler-free, so you don't  have to worry about  important info of
the game being spoiled.

 In the skies above Inferia is another planet called Celestia.

 Between them lies a sea of clouds - the Orbus Barrier. Inferia, Celestia and
the Orbus barrier compose Eternia, the crossroads of two worlds. A young
mysterious girl manages to cross the barrier and finds her way to Inferia. She
crash-lands her spaceship in a nearby forest of a small and quiet town,
Rasheans. Nothing is known of her except that she has come with a message of
impending doom: both planets are going to collide. When rescuing her, Reid and
Farah can't imagine they are about to embark on a journey to learn the truth
about the fate of their worlds.

~~~/_/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\_____________________________________/


   ~-~  Reid Hershel  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Age: 18
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 137 lbs
Origin: Inferia
Class: Hunter

 Reid is the red-haired protagonist of Tales of Eternia who wields a wide
variety of melee weaponry, including swords, axes, and halberds. His main
strength is his vast array of powerful close-combat special techniques that
utilize his high physical power; Reid's high HP and defense statistics also
help him survive close-quarters combat. Reid and Farah have known each other
since childhood, growing up in the same small village, Rasheans, and have
become close. Reid cannot use magic, but he has the special ability to use
Fibril, the so-called "Power of the Gods", to execute some unique and powerful
techniques late in the game.


   ~-~  Farah Oersted  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Age: 17
Height: 5'3"
Weight: 101 lbs
Origin: Inferia
Class: Farmer

 Farah is a hardheaded farm girl from the same village as Reid, Rasheans, and
they are almost always together as childhood friends. Throughout the game, a
light romantic relationship is implied between Reid and Farah; however, nothing
substantial develops. Farah uses her martial arts prowess to inflict hand-to-
hand damage on her enemies through punches and kicks and can link many of her
special attacks into each other, and she also has a narrow selection of healing
chi. Farah's weapons are knuckles that augment the strength of her physical
blows, and she plays more of a supporting role than Reid both in and out of
battle.


   ~-~  Keele Zeibel  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Age: 17
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 112 lbs
Origin: Inferia
Class: Mintche University Light Craymel Graduate

 Keele is a scholarly researcher who spends his time at Mintche University
investigating Craymels and their applications. Keele has the ability to cast
offensive magic and summon based on what Greater Craymels are assigned to him.
Although he has a few innate spells that are gained automatically, the vast
majority of Keele's spells must be gained through Greater Craymel assignment
and fringing (combination) to develop new techniques. Therefore, both Keele and
Meredy are highly customizable, but assignment of Greater Craymels among them
is a zero-sum game, so a balanced selection of spells is optimal. Keele fights
with staves and maces, but his physical attacks are unimpressive.


   ~-~  Meredy  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Age: 16
Height: 5'2"
Weight: 99 lbs
Origin: Celestia
Class: Craymel Engineer

 Hailing from Celestia and speaking a language alien to the Inferians, Melnics,
Meredy is never without her companion Quickie. Meredy's home is Imen, the city
of Craymels, in Celestia. Meredy has the same Greater Craymel options as Keele,
including fringing, offensive spellcasting, and summoning. Like Keele, Meredy
has a handful of innate offensive spells. Meredy uses whistles to command
Quickie and attack from long range; she can obtain a special item late in the
game to control him more accurately while defending or casting a spell,
increasing her power as a stand-alone character.


   ~-~  Chat  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Age: 12
Origin: Celestia
Class: Pirate

 Descended from a famous pirate, Aifread, Chat styles herself an oddball pirate
who is the captain of an impressive ship, the Van Eltia, but she has no crew.
Before meeting Reid in the course of the story, Chat lived in relative
isolation and avoided contact with others. Also she is often called a boy when
she is a girl. A unique and specialized character, Chat has the ability to
steal from enemies; her weapons are handbags. She can perform a counterattack
against enemies if she defends against their attacks with the right timing.


   ~-~  Max  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Age: 38
Origin: Celestia
Class: Gunner

 The leader of the resistance group, Shileska, which is aligned against the de
facto Celestian government; Shileska is headquartered in the Celestian city of
Tinnsia. Max wields high-powered energy guns as a ranged attacker.

Author notes:
  This is how it works:

- My lv.: I'll be displaying recommended levels, or even my levels, for every
area. On top, the original party, and below them, the reserve party. Remember
that the levels are only a reference. Go at your own pace, with levels higher
or lower. I am not trying to force you people to play the game the way I
played.

- Enemies: I'll be displaying the enemies that you will be encountering in that
area. Note that when I write "(B)" next to an Enemy's name (without the
quotation marks), it means that that Enemy is a Boss and "(OB)" stands for
Optional Boss.

- No. of Lens: There's a little sidequest throughout the whole game in where
you need to recollect Lens hidden in different locations throughout the game.
You receive special items depending on the number of Lens found.

- Item Checklist: The Items that you'll be picking up from the various treasure
chests, items that are a MUST for the game to proceed or hidden among the area
will be displayed here. Note that I won't be putting the items sold from
stores, nor the items random enemies' drop, so please just remember that. Also
notice that next to the items you've obtained, it's the quantity of that item
throughout the whole area.

 So, watch the scene at the beginning and when you gain control for the very
first time, move down S to the next area. Move S once again and again until you
reach an open area. Open up the chest in the middle of the area, as well as the
bag to receive 'Wooden Shield' and 'Spectacles'. Equip the Wooden Shield on
Reid and go N.

 Just open the bag to receive 'Apple Gel'. Return to the previous area and go
SW and from this next area, go N then W right from the start. From the road
ahead of you, go N and open the lone bag here to find another 'Apple Gel'.
Return to the area with the Load Point and go E to find the little monster from
the first animated cutscene.

 Try talking to it and it'll go N. Follow it to trigger a scene with the girl
from the cutscene.

 Watch the scene that continues from the forest and we'll have our first Boss
Battle.

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: ???  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: ???
- HP: 1,000
- XP: 300
- Gald: 800
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: None
    - Weak: None

- Strategy: ??? is a descent boss at this point in the game. He has attacks
like Thunder Blade (which many Tales of... fans will recognize), Spark Wave. He
focuses more on Lightning attacks, and since we're just beginning the game, we
don't have much of accessories, or any at all. You can have Reid and Farah
attack him so you can interrupt his spells.

Reid: Reid's main purpose in this battle is to attack it nonstop and having
Farah healing for the most part of the battle.

Farah: Same as Reid, her purpose it to damage .--------------------------------
??? as well as provide healing support for    |- Rewards:
Reid and herself. Nothing else needs to be    |     o Life Bottle
said here.                                    |     o Orange Gel

==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 Keep watching the scene after the fight. The scene lasts a lot. When you
regain control, exit Farah's house, go S and enter the house. Take a look at
the pink pig on the top of the screen (yeah, the one that pops out a lot) to
have Wonder Chef appear. He'll teach you Sandwich.

   <vin> Wonder Chef teaches you a different recipe each time you find him.
   There are times where you can obtain 2 recipes in the same area, so read
   carefully to locate all the recipes.

 Now exit the house and check the crops right in front of you (where the man in
working the ground) to find 'Kirima'. Leave the area to the N and in this next
area, check the barrels right next to you to find 'Apple Gel' and 'Apple Gel'.
Now go right and check the barrel next to the man in red to find yet another
'Apple Gel'.

 Now go S and check the barrel next to the house to find another 'Apple Gel'.
Now go inside the house. This is Reid's house. Go down to the basement and
check the yellow box on the E side of the room to find a "LENS". Now check the
pot with something green inside to find 'Apple Gel'. Exit the house and go S
and at the next fork, go E and enter the Elder's House.

 Check the yellow pot on the SW corner to find '500 Gald'. Now go up the ladder
next to the Elder. Now check the books next to the bed to find the 'Collector's
Book'. Exit the house and go S to the S most area of the village. Talk to the
guy standing there and he'll change you your Hand Axe for either a Short Sword
or a Short Spear.

   <vin> The Short Sword is the worst pick of the 3. The Short Spear has 25
   Slash stat less than the Hand Axe, but has 25 Thrust star less than the
   Short Spear  -- and since we use Slash more at this point, I recommend
   sticking with your Hand Axe, whether you like it or not =).

 Now go to the SW corner of the area (where the Windmill is) and examine the
barricaded door to find another "LENS". Now go into the building to the E to
check out the shop. Buy a Leather Helm for Reid -- and a couple of Lettuce,
Cheese and Bread. Now check the armor in the top corner to find Wonder Chef
once more. He'll teach you Omelette this time.

 Now you can leave Rasheans for good.

 From where we start, go S and try crossing the bridge to trigger a scene where
we finally get to know ???'s name, Meredy. And the pet's name is Quickie. Once
at the World Map again, go S following the path and when it curves E, you'll
see a building to the S. That's the Dojo. Before entering, go around it and go
to the S edge to enter a secret area with a war veteran.

 He'll teach you the "Range Attack Command", for use in battle. Return to where
the path was curving E and follow it to enter Rasheans River Pier. Go all the
way to the S area until a scene triggers. Now leave this place for now and
return to the building you previously passed, Regulus Dojo.

   <vin> Before you leave Rasheans River Pier, Meredy receives the title
   "Traveling Performer?"

 From the entrance, enter the building to the left (the Inn) and rest. Now go
into the room and check the rather obvious yellow tea pot sitting at the E
corner to have Wonder Chef appear and teach you Beef Stew. Now check the table
on the other side of the bed next to where Wonder Chef was to find 'Lid
Shield'. Now go inside the building on the right. Time to go shopping.

 From Iron Fortress, the Armor Shop, buy a Hard Leather for Reid; a Wristband
for each Meredy and Farah. Now from Victory Shop, the Weapon Shop, buy a
Francesca for Reid and Power Arms for Farah. If you have spare Gald, buy some
Items from Grand Trophy (some Spectacles would be perfect).

 Now go N inside the Dojo to be greeted by EIGHT Monk... time to fight.

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: 8x MONKS  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: Monk
- HP: 500 (each)
- XP: 8 (each)
- Gald: 12 (each)
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: None
    - Weak: None

- Strategy: These monks are not that hard, since they have a limited amount of
attacks... punching.

Reid: Have him normal attack twice to stun the group of Monks and finish with a
Lightning Blade to nearly kill the whole group. Repeat the process with him
until done.

==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====

 Watch the scene after the fight. We need to go to Franco's room now, but let's
do some exploring around the Dojo, 'k? Check the N pot (the one on the right)
to find 'Apple Gel'. Check the "broken" pillar on the left of the entrance to
find 'Leather Helm' and check the other "broken" pillar to find 'Apple Gel'.
Now proceed to the next room.

 In this room, go to the far S room and enter it. Examine the pots near the
entrance to find 'Orange Gel'. Now check the red box in front of these pots to
find a "LENS". Now exit and enter the next room. Check the table on the S
corner to find yet another "LENS".

 Go up the steps and talk to the monk on the right and tell him Manual Mode to
finally have Manual input in battle (in other words, you do everything
yourself). You'll receive 'Manual' from him. The other monk will just explain
you stuff, so do so if you need to. Leave the room and enter the next one where
there are 2 monks training.

 Talk to the upper monk to fight 8 more monks. This is easy XP, so do this as
many times as you want. Leave and talk to Franco. He teaches Farah the skill
Healer. Nice. Return to the hallway and go to the end door. Another scene
triggers here with Paollo. Now leave Regulus Dojo and return to Rasheans River
Pier.

 Go S and walk on the pier to talk to Paollo. When ready, say yes. A mini game
starts where you have to maneuver the raft down the river. Don't worry if you
mess up, you don't win nor lose anything here. Once at the World Map, simply
follow the path E until you reach Mintche.

 From where we start, go into the building next to you, the Inn. Rest up and
read the text books on the second floor if you want to. Now leave and at the
fork, go into the building right in front of you. This is the Student Store.
Buy a Ribbon for each Meredy and Farah. Now leave, go NW and enter the next
building, the Cafeteria.

 Check out the pink flower at the NE corner of the Cafeteria to find Wonder
Chef, who teaches you Hamburger. Buy any ingredients you need from here and go
NW to the next area. From this fork you're at, go NE on to the next area. Talk
to the couple at the corner to trigger a little scene. If you go up the stairs
and talk to the blonde twins, you'll start a minigame, but I won't cover these,
so you can play 'em on your own. But what I'll tell you to do is to check out
the tree SW of these twins to find a "LENS".

   <vin> It's in front of the stairs when you're going UP to the twins. It's
   not on the courtyard side of the tree.

 Now return to the previous screen and enter the only building you can here.
Read the text books if you want, return outside and go NW. Talk to the woman at
the counter to trigger a little scene. Now in here, a little scene triggers if
you enter the first door. Now enter the second room and talk to the person in
red hair at the end of the room.

 A scene triggers and Meredy receives the title "Craymel Mage?". Once in the
hallway, go to the 2nd floor and enter the last door. Check out the pipes next
to the whiteboard to find another "LENS". Now go to the 3rd floor and enter the
first door. Talk to the guy in here and you'll start the beginners' test. Now
leave Mintche.

 Once at the World Map, look at the map and locate the red and white dot SW of
Mintche. Move to the red dot and enter Mt. Mintche.

 As you enter, notice the hole in the wall. There will be Zombies coming out of
these holes, and they'll keep coming unless you block their path the a stone on
the upper area. This is a good area to gain levels early on, so if you wanna do
so, be my guest. When you get to the first fork (after the first set of
enemies), go W to find 2 chests, with 'Orange Gel' and 'Saber' in them. Equip
the Saber and continue on.

 On the next area, you can camp here if you'd like, although your TP won't
recover, your HP will. On the third screen, go E at the beginning and open the
bag to grab 'Apple Gel'. From the second group of enemies, go E to find 'Pole
Axe' and '600 Gald'. Proceed N and W to the next area. Cross the bridge and
exit to the World Map. Go N to Mt. Mintche Observatory.

 A scene triggers as you enter. A rather long one by the way. After it, Keele
joins the party for the rest of the game. When you're at the World Map, return
inside and go down the stairs to find 'Holy Bottle' inside the chest. Now check
the box next to the Holy Bottle to find a "LENS". Now make your way again
through Mt. Mintche and afterwards, at the World Map, go to Mintche again to
rest up at the Inn.

 Once at the World Map, go to the red dot on the E part of the map to find
Nostos Cave.

 A little scene triggers as you try to enter the cave. After the little scene,
buy whatever you want from him and enter the cave. Go N from this first fork
and grab 'Orange Gel' at the end. Return to the fork and go E this time. A
scene triggers at the other area. From this fork, go E and grab 'Panacea
Bottle' and 'Protector' from the bag and chest.

 Equip the Protector and proceed to the NE exit. Go W right from the start and
open the chest to find 'Buckler'. Equip it on Reid, return to the fork and go
N. From the log that's on the E side, go W and open the other chest to find
'Chain Arms'. Now go N to trigger a little Boss fight.

- Name: Egg Bear
- HP: 3,200
- XP: 32
- Gald: 90
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: None
    - Weak: Fire

- Strategy: I wasn't going to consider this as a Boss, since it's really easy,
but since it has a lot more HP than the other enemies around, I decided to do
so. You'll only have Reid and Keele to do the dirty work, so read below to see
how to make this fight even easier.

Reid: Have Reid use Demon Hammer and Lightning Blade nonstop, having him away
from Keele, since he has no armor equipped. Do whatever you can to keep the Egg
Bear away from Keele.

Keele: Keele must be using his Fireball skill nonstop against the Egg Bear,
being that it's weak against Fire.

==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====

 A little scene happens after the fight.

   <vin> Man, this scene is like burnt into my brain. I remember this scene
   almost every day since I saw it.

 Save your game if you want and go N to find 'Battle Axe' inside a chest. Equip
it to Reid. You should get the message that it's High Tide. If so, return 2
screens and you'll see that the cave is filled with water. Cross the tree there
and grab 'Life Bottle' and 'Circlet' from the chests there. Equip the Circlet
on Keele (finally some Head Armor) and return to the Entrance.

 Wait here until you get another message that it's high tide and go N from this
first fork. Follow the path until you find 'Rapier'. Now wait for the tide to
go down and return to the Camp Site. Go N and follow the path and when you see
blood on the wall, follow this path. You'll see the dead merchant here. Go N
from here.

 Grab 'Orange Gel' from the bag in here, then go N to find a "LENS" in the
lumber there. Return to where you saw the blood and go N to get to the World
Map. Once on the World Map, simply follow the path E and when you see a huge
tree in middle of a patch of forest, that's your destination, Morle.

 Move up the scenes as you enter, then climb up the ladder to the N when you
get to it (the third area). The stores are up here. The first one sells items.
Now go N to get to the next set of stores. The first building is the Inn, and
the next one is the Food Shop.

   <vin> You'll find Katrine in here. Yeah, she's on her way to Inferia.
   You'll see her a lot more times before she arrives at Inferia. Poor girl...

 Check the pumpkin in the corner to have Wonder Chef appear and teach you
"Garden Salad". Now check the barrel next to the Wonder Chef to obtain 'Holy
Bottle'. Buy whatever you need and return to the area where you went up the
ladder and go NE to the next area.

 When you get to a fork, go W and follow the path until a scene triggers. Go
inside the house and have the scene with Professor Mazet continue. You'll
receive 'Orz Earring'. Now Meredy runs off. Dammit! Return inside the house and
check the fireplace to grab the "LENS" of this area. Since you're in here, go
up to the second floor and check out the chest to have Wonder Chef appear once
again and teach you "Fruit Juice". Now, do you remember the fork before
arriving at Mazet's place? Go there and go S to get to...

 You'll see Meredy run off. Just what's wrong with her? Move to the next area,
then go SE at the fork to grab the chest with 'Knight Saber'. I recommend
equipping it right away to Reid and proceed SW to the next area. There's a camp
site in this area, so use it if needed, then proceed to the next one.

 Go SW from the fork to find 'Chirp Whistle'. Now go N and grab 'Iron Helm' at
the end of the path. Equip it on Reid and go down the plant next to the chest.
Down here, go NW to the next area, which will trigger a scene and a Boss
Battle!

- Strategy: Another easy battle. Don't worry, not all the bosses are this easy.
Insect Plant comes with 3 Evil Needles, but they'll go down in a hit or 2.
Focus on these 3 suckers first, then attack Insect Plant, while you heal
whenever needed.

Reid: Reid, as always, should be the one receiving the damage. Have him use
Swarm and Lightning Blade nonstop throughout the whole battle, stunning the
boss for an even easier fight.

Farah: Farah should assist you out with damaging Insect Plant, but her main
purpose is to keep Reid (and probably Keele too) healed, whether you use Healer
or Apple Gels if you're out of TP.

Keele: Have Keele use Fireball all the battle. Being that the boss is weak
against Fire, Keele's Fireball should be even
better than Reid's attacks. Keep your         .--------------------------------

 Use the Load Point and return to the camp site. When you get here, a scene
triggers. Nice, now we need to form pacts with the Greater Craymels of Inferia,
Undine, Efreet and Sylph. Now leave this place and return to Mazet's place.
Another scene triggers as you enter, so watch it until the end.

   <vin> During the scene with Mazet, you'll receive 'Inferia Map' from him.
   He'll also teach Farah the skill Detoxify. Man, you could have give us that
   before we left. We could have really used it.

 Return inside and talk to Mazet to receive a 'Monster Collection' book. Now go
to the Inn if you need to and leave Morle for good. At the World Map, follow
the path E and at the fork, go NE until you get to Undine Stream. Before
entering though, follow the mountain range next to Undine Stream NW and go
around it and in this small area with no grass, go to the end of it to find one
of those secret areas to find 'Poison Charm'.

   <vin> Pretty nice accessory that prevents Poison on the equipped character.
   Make sure to equip it right away.

 Now return to Undine Stream, save and enter.

 From where we start this dungeon, check the Load Crystal and go N to find

'Feather Robe'. Return and go S this time to find another chest with 'Silk

under the tree (you won't be able to see) and follow the little path to grab a
hidden "LENS".

 Now cross the shallow river. On the other side, go N to reach the next area.
Go N and cross the shallow river. When you cross the tree stump, go E and grab
'Mace' from the chest you see there. Now go W from the tree stump and follow
the path across the shallow river until you grab 'Iron Wrist' inside a chest.
Equip it on whoever needs it (probably Keele) and go N from before the shallow
river.

 On this next area, grab 'Poison Charm', go N and enter the cave behind the
waterfall to trigger a scene with Undine. Once it's over, open the chest to
find 'Melange Gel'. Exit and reenter to camp here. The only bad thing is that
you won't recover TP. Great place to level up a bit. Now leave the cave and
exit through the SE corner.

 On this next area, cross the water to the E and go S to find a hidden chest
under the tree with 'Hydra Dagger' inside of it.

   <vin> This is your first weapon with an elemental affinity. It has pretty
   darn good Slash and Thrust attack, but since it's water oriented and most of
   the enemies here are strong against water, I recommend waiting until you get
   out of here to equip it.

 Now start going N and when you see a chest on the E side, go W and under the
trees. From here, go S to get to a chest with 'Apple Shield' inside. I don't
recommend equipping it, because the next Boss, Undine, is pretty darn hard and
you need all the defense you can get. Return to where you saw the chest and
open it to find 'Melange Gel'. Proceed NW to the next area. But before that,
heal up completely (HP and TP) and save your game.

 Another scene with Undine triggers in here, so watch it and prepare for
battle!

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: UNDINE  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: Undine
- HP: 6,800
- XP: 1,360
- Gald: 0
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: Water
    - Weak: Lightning

- Strategy: Undine is a BITCH! Seriously! She's so hard if you're a first timer
in this game and/or series. She has some deathly moves like Spear of Baptism,
which attacks all characters in from of her (you can jump over, but it passes
so quickly that you have to really focus), Spread, which summons a giant
waterfall with a huge range that attacks anyone nearby. Subterranean Divide
attacks like an Aqua Edge, only on the ground and in front of her. She also has
Aqua Edge, which you should probably be familiar with from Keele's arsenal.

Reid: Reid's mission, like in most of them, is to take most of the damage. Have
Reid attack using Lightning Blade or Demon Lightning Blade, to take a lot of HP
out of Undine, since she's weak against Lightning.

Farah: She must support Reid with attack, as well as healing with Healer. Keep
her TP up at all times. Put her Punch and Kick numbers in the Strategy submenu
at 5.

Meredy: The most useful character in the game. In the Strategy submenu, put her
Battle TP at 5 and disable Grave and Ice Needle, since the only thing we need
it her Lightning. Keep her alive all the battle.

Keele: Keele must use Fireball and Air Blade throughout the whole battle and
since he won't be doing THAT much damage,     .--------------------------------
have him use the items needed throughout the  |- Rewards:
battle, that being Apple, Orange, Melange     |     o Talisman
Gels and Life Bottles.                        |     o Mental Bracelet
                                              |
==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 Watch the scene after the battle. When you're taken to the C.Cage submenu, use
Fringe to form the arte Spread. You'll be given a brief tutorial from Meredy as
to what each thing means, so pay attention. Check the Load Point and start
going back, just to trigger a scene where the cave is. Now make you way through
Undine Stream until you get to the World Map.

 Once on the world map, you may return to Morle to restock your item supply. If
not, return to the fork in the path and follow it E to enter Forest of
Temptation (right after the bridge).

 Ok, prepare for a horrible and long dungeon. Make sure you're prepared with
Gels and Life Bottles, 'k? Start by going N. In this second screen, go E to
find 'Iron Arms'. Equip on Farah and return to the previous screen. Go N and E
two screens. Grab 'Melange Gel' and go N two more screens. Grab '400 Gald' and
proceed N to find 'Iron Wrist' in a chest.

 Go W from here two more screens and S one to find 'Misty Robe'. Equip it on
Keele and go N all the way until you get to a statue. In this Deity of
Confusion, examine it until it faces E (to the right). Return to the previous
screen, go W, open the chest with 'Life Bottle' in it and go N to find another
statue. With the Deity of Destruction, leave it as it is (facing to the right).

 Return to where the Grim Reapers are and from there, go E two screens, grab
'Life Bottle' from the chest and go N to find a little pond. Drink of it to
regain HP (sorry, no TP). Return to the previous screen and go right, grab
'Holy Bottle' and go S only one screen, then go E. This Deity of Order must be
facing W, so leave it the way it is. Open the chest though, which contains
'Syrup Bottle'.

 Return to the previous screen, go S, grab 'Pine Gel' and go E. This Deity of
Creation must be facing W as well, so do so and grab 'Flare Bottle' from the
chest there. Now the path's open. Return to the previous screen, return two
screens N and go W until you reach the reapers. From these guys, go S and a
little scene triggers where the damn bastard Quickie runs away and Meredy after
it.

 Before following them, go S, then go E when possible. Open the chest to get
'Silk Cloak'. Go N to find a bunch of statues. Check the tree roots behind the
middle one to find "LENS". Return to the main path and go N two screens, then
go E and follow the path until you find both Quickie and Meredy. A little scene
triggers here.

   <vin> Now how the **** does Farah plan to get to Celestia?!

 Anyway, go E after the scene and grab 'Panacea Bottle'. Now go S once, then W
once to find 'Reverse Doll'.

   <vin> The Reverse Doll is a pretty cool Accessory that revives the equipped
   character once when killed in battle. Pretty neat, huh?!

 Return to the screen with the reapers and go all the way S, grab 'Lemon Gel'
when you get to it and go E. There's a visible enemy here. Spooky! Grab the
'Charm Bottle', return one screen W, then one N and go E to find 'Water
Crystal' in a bag. Use it on Undine from the C.Cage submenu. From here, go N
all the way until you find 'Orange Gel' in a bag.

 From here, follow the path W, grab 'Rune Bottle' and go N to find another
Jungler. Dispose of it and grab the chest behind it that contains 'Bastard
Sword'. Equip it on Reid right away! Return to where the reapers are (2 screens
from your position) and in the screen N of them, go E and follow this path to
find another Jungler and a chest with 'Miracle Gel' inside.

 Return once again to where the reapers are, go S from them, go E once, grab
'Pine Gel' and follow the path S to find 'Orange Gel', 'Apple Gel' and a
Jungler. Return to where you got the Pine Gel, go E, grab 'Spectacles', go N
once, the go E to find '765 Gald', 'Wind Crystal' and the last Jungler. Return
to where the reapers are to have the path opened. Now leave to the world map.

   <vin> That was one long and tedious dungeon, wasn't it? Told ya!

 Anyway, once on the world map, simply go N and enter Inferia City.

o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o

 From where you start, enter the building right in front of you and restock
your item supply. Now leave and go to the W section of the city. Enter the
first building to find the Weapon Shop. Check the plant in here to find 'Pine
Gel'. Buy a Heavy Grave for Reid (very nice weapon indeed) and a Bird Whistle
for Meredy.

 Leave and to the W you'll find the arena. I won't be going into detail right
now, but check out the dedicated section for more info. Now go N to the next
section. The first building is the Royal Observatory of Astronomy. There's
nothing you can do in here at the moment, so ignore it. If you talk to the guy
in white next to the Observatory, he'll sell you food. Proceed E to the next
area.

 Enter the building to the N as you enter and inside, check the plant next to
the stairs to find a "LENS". Check the plant on the W side of the room (a
darker plant) to find Wonder Chef. This time, he'll teach you "Softcake". Leave
this place go S, ignore this building, as well as the old man that talks to you
and move S to the next area.

 Enter the building next to the guys that are pissed at each other. This is
Winner's Shop, which sell armor. Buy a Chain Mail for Reid, and Iron Wrist to
whoever needs it, a Round Shield for Reid too and a Leather Cape to anyone that
has a normal Cape. Leave, go W and enter the Hotel Inferia. Go up to the second
floor, check the flower vase in between the rooms to find 'Bellebane'. Check
the other vase to find Wonder Chef...

   <vin> How does the Wonder Chef fit in those tight places? >.<

 ... he'll teach you "Cream Stew". Now leave the Hotel and return to the N area
(where the Observatory is) and go N from here. Talk to the guards to trigger a
little scene.

   <vin> WTF?! What's up with those damn guards?! >=O

 Nice, time to go to the Observatory. Do so and go up the stairs until you
trigger yet another scene. Dammit! Leave the Observatory to trigger yet one
more scene. Remember the building on the E side of town I told you to ignore?
Well, go there now and approach the priest to trigger a rather unfortunate
scene.

 When you regain control, go W into the garden. Go W from here and go to the
bottom of the stairs where there are some soldiers. Check the treasure chest to
find 'Lemon Gel'. Go up 1 story and enter the room, which is the kitchen.
Examine the fruit near the entrance to find 'Pine Gel'. Go to the second floor
and enter the room to trigger a scene.

 When you regain control, before leaving the room, check out the cabinet next
to the bed to find the second "LENS" of the area. Leave, go down to the first
floor and leave through the SE exit. Another scene triggers out here. Before
following them, go NE and enter the other side of the castle. Go down in this
room and check the vases down here to find 'Dark Bottle'. Return and now follow
the princess and that damn knight Roen.

 Watch the scene and at the end, Roen will give you 'Boarding Pass'. Now it's
time to go to Port of Inferia, but before that, enter the Observatory once
again and go to the top. Once here, check out the piece of paper on the S end
(on top of the shelves) to find the third and last "LENS" of Inferia City. Now
you may leave Inferia City.

 In the World Map, go NW to reach Port of Inferia.

 Talk to the soldier that blocks the gate. Go inside and inside the building to
your left. Check the anchor in here to find Wonder Chef, who teaches you "Fish
Stew"... eww. Check the barrels next to the Wonder Chef to obtain 'Fire
Crystal'. Now leave the building and go up the stairs and go E. Check the
barrels in this area to find the "LENS" of this area.

 Before talking to the sailor to get on the ship, make sure Meredy has Undine
in her C.Cage. Also, take off all of Keele's equipment, as he'll leave the
party as soon as you board the ship. Well, you receive it either way. After a
scene in the ship, our party finally arrives at Port Barole.

 Go under the white and green tent to find a chest with 'Kite Shield'. Equip it
on Reid right away. As you leave, a dude tells you to pay 4000 Gald for the
shield. Do so. Now go W and into the building. Check the NE freezer to find
'Water Shard'. Buy any fish you want/need, exit and go down the stairs to the
E.

 Check the boxes to find Wonder Chef. He'll teach you how to prepare
"Calamari" this time. Check the boxes to find another "LENS". Now go under the
tower thing next to the Wonder Chef and open the chest with 'Ahmet Helm' in it.
Now pay 1440 Gald for it. Now leave Port Barole to the W. Once in the World
Map, simply go W and enter Barole.

 After the little scene, enter the building to the N and check the pot right
next to the door to find 'Holy Bottle'. Buy the ingredients for the Softcake,
exit the shop and enter the building to the W. Go up the stairs at the back and
talk to the old man up here to have Wonder Chef appear. He'll teach you how to
prepare "Steak".

 Leave this place and go W to the next area. Check the fountain to obtain
'1,000 Gald'. Now go into the building next to the stairs. This is the Weapon
and Armor shop. Buy a Steel Sword for Reid, a Needle Glove for Farah, and buy
an Ahmet Helm for Reid in case you didn't buy it from before. Now leave through
the N door. Out here, open the chest to find 'Shamsel'.

   <vin> The Shamsel has lower SLA and THR attack power, but has -20 ACC and -2
   EVA. Try using both and see which one suits you the best.

 Talk to the girl and she'll give you 'Elixir' for being able to find this
place. Return to the main area, go down the stairs and go to the next area to
trigger a scene. We're introduced to Ras. He joins the party for a short time,
but he's cool nonetheless. Also, Farah receives a title.

 When you regain control, return to where the scene triggered and go SE to find
Ras. Now enter the N building to find Katrine. Return to the previous area (the
one where you met Ras for the first time) and check the pink flowers next to
the N building to find 'Water Crystal'. Now enter the Shop of Desire and check
the golden vases near the entrance to find a "LENS". The things they sell are a
bit expensive, and we don't need them right now, so just ignore the items on
sell.

 Go SE once again and enter the Inn (where Ras was waiting for you). Check the
plants near the couch to find 'Dark Bottle'. Now go inside the next room and
check the cabinet-thing in the corner to have Wonder Chef appear once again and
teach you "Pot Pie". Now exit Barole.

 To get to Sylph's Cavern, go S across the bridge and simply go S until you
reach your destination.

 Start by going further in and a scene triggers with 2 soldiers. In this next
area, you'll see a hole in the ground that spits out air. Step on top of it
when the air is blowing to be pushed upwards to the next area. In here, go W
and grab 'Storm Shield' from the chest. Return to the fork and go N through the
whirlwinds. You'll take damage though. Then go down the hole.

 Once down here, go W and before stepping where the air is blowing, examine the
pillar-like stone to create a path with a rope. Cross and go to the next area.
Grab the N bag to get 'Melange Gel'. Now go down the hole. Proceed deeper to
trigger a little scene and a camp site.

   <vin> Why don't they recover out DAMN TP?!?!?!

 Now proceed E to the next area. Go W and up with the wind. Up here, go E
across the gap to find 'Melange Gel'. Now proceed N and into the hole. In the
next grassy area, go E and DON'T cross the path to the chest. Instead, go
around to open it and find 'Assault Dagger'. Also, open the bag to find '1,800
Glad'. Now go across the path and drop down. Open the chest to find 'Mental
Ring'.

 Return all the way to where you previously were and go to the NE corner to
find another "LENS". Now go down the hole. Grab 'Orange Gel' from the bag, go
E, follow the upper path and grab 'Lemon Gel' from another bag, and go all the
way E to the next area. Follow the path S and enter the hole. Go all the way W
from here to find a chest with 'Needle Glove' inside.

 Return to the previous fork, go S, then go E at the next one to find 'Arc
Wind' at the end of the path. Return to the previous fork, go W and enter the
next area. Grab 'Life Bottle' from the bag and proceed through the path. When
you see the Load Point, save your game and prepare for battle.

- Name: Arms
- HP: 4,500

- Gald: 150
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: Wind
    - Weak: None

- Strategy: Sylph is not alone, unlike Undine. He has 2 "servants" that fight
alongside him. You can easily take care of these Arms by having Reid use Demon
Hammer and Neosonic Swarm. Make sure to keep comboing these Arms until they're
defeated. Now focus on Sylph.

 He's not that tough once the Arms are taken care of. Attack him nonstop with
Demon Hammer, which works wonders on him since he's floating. Make sure to keep
healed all the battle, even if you have to use all your Apple Gels and whatnot.

Reid: Reid should focus on the Arms first, which will be his main priority.
Once they're gone, focus all your attacks on Sylph. Make sure he has the Storm
Shield equip and the Shamsel/Steel Sword as well.

Farah: Make her the healer for the battle. Make her use Healer throughout the
whole battle, just to make things a bit easier.

Meredy: Have Meredy use Spread again and again through the entire battle. This
is for 2 reasons: 1) Grave won't hit Sylph and 2) When the Vitality reaches its
MAX point, summon Undine to deal heavy dmg.   .--------------------------------
and heal the party members.                   |- Rewards:
                                              |     o Orange Gel
Ras: The same as Reid. He should focus on     |     o Protect Ring
the Arms, then on Sylph.                      |     o Life Bottle
                                              |
==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 After the scene, check the Load Point and open up your C.Cage submenu. Use the
Fringe command to form the Wind Arte Air Thrust. Now, if you pass Sylph to the
red C.Cage and Fringe, you'll create the Water/Wind Arte Heal, which obviously
Heals a character for around 750+ HP.

   <vin> In other words, you can either have Heal, or Air Thrust. The decision
   is yours. I personally chose to keep Air Thrust for the time being. At least
   until Keele returns to the party.

 Now leave this place completely to trigger a scene where Ras leaves us. Also,
Sylph appears and gives you the "Aerialboard". Sweet. Also, Keele rejoins the
party. Now leave Sylph Cavern.

 There are some things that you can do now that you have the Aerialboard. You
can skip this whole section and do it once you have the airship. Anyway, if
you're not doing it, you may proceed to Chambard.

 From Sylph Cavern, go around the mountain range and on to the SW corner of the
continent. Enter the circular patch of grass to enter a secret area that
contains a "LENS". Return to Barole and follow the river next to the town N to
get to another secret area with a person that sells Strawberries. Buy 15 for
1,200 Gald so we can make a lot of Softcakes.

   <vin> You can go to Barole Port while you're around here and catch a ride to
   Inferia Port on the second class ride and when you have control, exit the
   cabin and enter the NE room to find a "LENS" inside the pots in the corner.
   You can also check the rest of the boat to find 'White Cloak', 'Ahmet Helm',
   'Crescent Axe'. You can also find Katrine in the dining room. You can grab
   'Fire Crystal', 'Savory', 'Melange Gel', 'Tuna Gel' only when you buy the
   First Class ticket.

 Now go directly NW of Barole and hop on the island in the ocean. There's a
secret area here that contains 'Savory' and 'Lavender'. Directly SE of here is
an opening in the mountains (which is also directly NW of Barole -- with more W
than N). Come here to find 'Wind Shard' and 'Wind Crystal'. Now, open up your
map and move to Chambard.

 From here, go NW and on the island on the other side of the river, go to the
NW corner to find another secret area with a war veteran who teaches you "Front
Attack Command". There's also a "LENS". Locate the 2 patches of forest NE of
your position (N of Chambard). Go in middle of the upper one to find 'Tomato'.

 Now go E from your current position and go on to the larger island to find
'Pine Gel' and 'Lemon Gel'. Return to Chambard and go S to find a river. Go to
the N corner of the W side of the river to find 'Water Shard' and 'Water
Crystal'. Go directly E from here to find yet another river. Go to the N corner
of the large island on the E to find 'Syrup Bottle' and 'Life Bottle'.

 Go to the entrance to the Forest of Temptation (on the Inferia City side) and
go S on the island to find 'Flare Cape'. Now move to Morle. From here, go N to
the beach, then go all the way W to find another war veteran who teaches you
"Focus Attack Command". Go N from here and soon enough you'll find an island on
your W with a white dot on it.

 Check the NE forest on the corner of the island to find another war veteran
that teaches you "Back Attack Command". Now, go directly E to be exactly N of
Undine Stream. On the N corner (behind the mountains), enter the secret area to
find another war veteran that tells you something about a girl that can ride
Drake the Dragon.

 Now go W and return to the previous spot, but in the center on the path
between this spot and the previous one, go N and into the forest of the little

o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o

 From this first area, go up the stairs and go all the way N to find a lone
woman named Irene that will give you prices depending on how many Lens you've
gotten. You must have 21 at this point. You'll get the following from her:

10 Lens - Combo Command
20 Lens - Inferi Cape

 Now enter the building to the right, grab 'Rune Bottle' from the red pot.
Restock your item supply and return to the entrance of town. Use the Inn right
in front of you if you need to, but make sure to go in the room with the beds
and check the N most one to have Wonder Chef appear and teach you "Carbonara
Pasta". Now go W to the next area. Check the front of the horse statue that's
sitting here to receive another "LENS".

 To the S of the statue is the Balloon Master, which is a mini game where you
have to destroy balloons in the given time. If you finish the mini game (and I
mean all the levels), you'll receive the title "King of Balloons". Return to
the previous area and talk to the guy in blue near the Inn to receive all his
Gald... 100. Return to where the Balloon Master is and check SE of him to find
a chest with 'Elven Boots' inside.

 Now go NW from here to get to the next area. Before going up the stairs, go
inside the building next to it to find Katrine once more. Now buy here a Blue
Ribbon for each Farah and Meredy, as well as a Kitchen Mitten for each one of
them. Now go up the stairs and enter the NE shop. From the weapon shop, buy: a
Dao Blade for Reid, a Pretty Whistle for Meredy and a Gem Rod for Keele. Sell
everything else, except all the important Accessories.

 From the Armor Shop, buy: a Ring Mail and a Cross Helm for Reid and a Gold
Circlet for Keele. If you don't have enough money, use those Charm Bottles
you've received to get a 30% discount. Now leave and enter the big building to
the N. Go W at the entrance and check out the extremely large wine bottle near
the stairs to have Wonder Chef appear. He'll teach you "Seafood Pasta".

 Now go up the stairs and check the red chairs that are in front of the white
table to get another "LENS". Return to the entrance and go E to find the shops.
Make sure to fully stock on ingredients to prepare Carbonara (large HP&TP
restoration), Seafood Pasta (large HP restoration) and Softcake (large TP
restoration).

 Once you're done with all this, it's time to go to Efreet's Gorge. In the
World Map, move SE to the red dot on your map to get to your destination.

 Thanks to Undine, we're able to get across the place. Now you have to make
Haste through the Gorge, before Undine's protection disappears. In this next
area, go N from the fork to grab 'Venom' from the chest. Return to the fork and
go SE and follow the path until you get to the next area.

   <vin> The Firebird enemy here drops Flamberge's, a Fire-based sword for
   Reid. Whatever you do, keep at least 1 Flamberge so we can deal later with
   the Ice Craymel (there's only a 12% of getting it though).

 Grab 'Sage' from the chest and proceed N to the next area. Start by going all
the way N to find 'Flare Cape'. Return to the entrance of this area and go W to
find another chest with 'Lemon Gel' in it. Return and go N, then W through the
flames to the next area. This is a Camp site. Watch the scene before
proceeding.

 There are 3 doors in this room, but you can't open them just yet. Proceed to
the next area. Start by going E to find 'Life Bottle'. Return to the fork and
go N to the top and go E to find 'Lavender'. Cross the flames to the right of
the chest, go S at the fork and then go E across another set of flames to find
'Cross Helm' and 'Square Shield'. Equip the Square Shield right away, return to
the fork across the flames and go N to the next area.

 Undine tells you that not even her powers can protect you from the flames
shooting from the floor, so you must be careful. Do so, grabbing 'Blue Ribbon'
and 'Bracelet'. You're finally at the last area of the Gorge, so heal up, save
your game, make preparations and go up the stairs to trigger a scene and a Boss
Battle!

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: EFREET  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: Efreet
- HP: 24,000
- XP: 2,750
- Gald:
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: Fire
    - Weak: Water

- Strategy: Efreet is pretty annoying more than hard. His attacks are quite
painful though, but he attacks are slow, so you have plenty of time to heal.
Most of the battle, he'll use an attack which makes the floor under him be on
fire, so if you approach him, he'll burn you and you'll stay the taking damage
for quite some time. Even though it's 1 dmg., the fact that you can't move is
what makes it annoying. Make sure you come with Accessories that protect
against Fire damage, like the Flare Cape (you must have at least 2) and the
Inferi Cape.

Reid: His duty is to attack Efreet, like in ALL the battles. Give Reid the
Square Shield and the Hydra Dagger (I hope you haven't sold it yet). The Hydra
Dagger deals slightly more damage than the rest of the weapons, so it's a must
for the battle. Make sure to give him the Inferi Cape, since it's best against
Fire than the Flare Cape. It's your basic stuff with Reid. Attack him nonstop
with whatever skills you feel like using.

Farah: Have her attack Efreet alongside Reid and whenever needed, have her use
Healer on anyone that requires it. Giving her a Flare Cape is a must, since
she'll be close up to Efreet.

Meredy: Have Meredy use Spread over and over throughout the whole battle.
Deactivate all her other skills besides Heal and Spread. Also, in the Strategy
battle menu, put her Attack TP and Heal TP at 5, while her Attack at 1, so she
stays away from Efreet. Having her Spread in your R2 button shortcut is a must,
so you press it nonstop to make sure she uses the damn attack.

Keele: Keele is another source of damage. Make him use Air Thrust through the
entire battle, because it can deal up to 1,000
dmg. to Efreet. If you need to use an Apple,  .--------------------------------
Orange, etc Gel, make HIM use it, since his   |- Rewards:
attacks are the most expendable.              |     o Black Onyx
                                              |     o Life Bottle
                                              |
==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 Watch the scene with Rem after the fight. You'll also receive 'Sorcerer's
Ring', which you'll use with R1. Fringe right away to create the Eruption Arte.
When Efreet reaches Lv.5, you can Fringe with Undine to create Sharpness; or
you can Fringe with Sylph to create Concentrate. Return 2 areas to where the 3
door are and use the Sorcerer's Ring to open the first door.

 Behind it, use the Sorcerer's Ring once again on the blue stone to have Death
appear. Not hard at all. Afterwards, a chest drops, containing 'Rune Bottle'.
Return to the previous room, go S to find another door. Go behind it and use
the Sorcerer's Ring once again on the blue stone to have another Death enemy
appear. It'll give you 'Fire Shard'. Do the same for the third and last door to
receive "LENS".

 Move to the Camp area to trigger a scene about the master mind behind the
Grand Fall... Balir! Anyway, Camp here and completely leave Efreet Gorge. Time
to go to Mt. Farlos. Open up your World Map and locate the large island in
middle of the ocean. That's Farlos. Go there.

o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o

 We start out at the Sanctuary. Go inside and into the room to the left. Rest
in here and a scene triggers. Now check the W drawer to find "LENS". Return to
the main hall, talk to the priest and answer with the following:

- The God of Creation
- The floating ring in the sky
- He lives somewhere

 When you try to leave, he'll teach Farah the skill "Life". Nice, very nice.
Now exit and go N to Mt. Farlos itself. Prepare for the largest dungeon so far.
After the scene, go N to the next area. Check N almost at the top of the trees
to find a chest with 'Crystal Robe' in it. Then go N to N to find 'Duel Helm'
in another chest. Now go E and at the fork, go E to find 'Omega Shield' in the
next area. Return to the fork and go N to the next area.

 From the fork, go NW to find a chest with 'Flare Bottle' inside. Now go N to
trigger a rockslide and have Farah separated from the group. Dammit! Some
reminiscent scenes trigger. Yay, Ras is here. Move S a bit now and go E down
the little rock there on to the next area. Cross the bridge to the next area.

 Follow the path and at the fork, go S to find 'Apple Gel' from the bag. Return
to the fork and go E to the next area to trigger a scene where you finally meet
Farah, although she won't be joining you anytime soon. Keep following the path,
grab 'Emerald Ring' from the chest you come across and keep following the path
until a scene with Farah and Ras triggers.

 Keep following the path and when you get to a fork in an area with falling
boulders, go W following the lower path to grab 'Warrior Symbol'. Return to the
fork and follow the upper path this time on to the next area. There's a chest
to the W, so go grab it to obtain 'Orange Gel'. Proceed N to the next area,
which is another area with boulders falling. Follow the upper path to get to
the next area.

 Grab 'Lemon Gel' from the bag you come across in the next area and proceed to
the next one, which is another boulder falling area. Go down the lower path to
find 'Trident' in the chest. Now proceed N to another boulder falling area.
Follow the lower path to find '2,600 Gald' from the chest, then proceed N to
the next area. There are no more chests in this part, so make your way N until
you hit the Camp site of this dungeon.

 <vin> Love the Camp scene ^_^

 Proceed and another scene with Ras and Farah will trigger. Now we're at an
area totally different from the rest. We'll be using Quickie for this part.
Start by saying:

- 1st rope: Right, then Go, Now, Now, There (this will untie the rope).
- 2nd rope: Now, Go, There, There (this will untie the second rope).
- 3rd rope: Now, Now, Now, There (this will untie the last rope)

 Now proceed through the rope maze. Grab 'Life Bottle' after the maze and
follow the path until the party sees the summit. Go up to meet with Farah!
Thank goodness. Once Ras leaves, heal up, save your game and use the Sorcerer's
Ring on the door to open it up. Go inside to trigger a scene and just before
you cross the Bridge of Light, someone comes in and you'll have you fight him.

- Name: Rassius
- HP: 4,408
- XP: 928
- Gald: 0
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: None
    - Weak: None

- Strategy: Ras fights just as he did when he was with us at Sylph Cavern, so
you must know his patterns and attacks by now. He fights really similar to
Reid, so shield at all times and keep healed, even though he doesn't make that
much dmg.

Reid: Since Ras fights similar to Reid, attack whenever you see an opening and
guard until you're able to attack. Use Items as needed (probably you won't need
them though, since Farah now has Life to revive).

Farah: Like all battles, have Farah Heal the party if needed and support you in
attacking Ras, using all the skills she has.

Meredy: Make her spam Heal through the battle and use Spread whenever she can.

Keele: He must keep using Air Thrust and      .--------------------------------
Eruption through the battle, since those are  |- Rewards:
the main sources of dmg. coming from Keele.   |     o Heal Bracelet
Use Sylph or Efreet whenever possible.        |     o Leather Cape

 Oh wow, this is completely different from the towns in Inferia. Meredy
introduces you to her friends, Sagura, Bulenda and Hamilt. Ok now, so when you
regain control, go N and check the pot outside the house to find 'Melange Gel'.
The guy next to the pot sells food, so stock up your Carbonara (although you
won't find Bear Meat, Egg nor Pasta). Now go W to the next area.

 Go W and enter the weapon shop. A little scene triggers here. Now talk to
Hamilt to buy some weapons: 1 Saw Saber for Reid (we need the ACC), 1 Ruby Wand
for Keele and 1 Silver Knuckles for Farah. For Armor: 1 Splint Mail and 1 Fine
Shield for Reid and 1 Striped Ribbon for Meredy (you'll find another one really
soon).

 Exit the shop and go S a little bit to trigger a little scene with Lotte and
Bonz. Now go S to the entrance of town. Check the pots in the basket in front
of the lower building to find 'Orange Gel'. Now go inside the building to find
Kukurle, another friend of Meredy. Leave after the scene and go S to trigger a
little chat about the central lamp-thingy.

 Return to Meredy's house and they'll leave you right now. There's a scene
between Reid and Farah. Once awake, go meet with Farah in the next room. Check
the shelf in this room to find 'Striped Ribbon'. Return to the main room and
check the glass table in the center of the house to find yourself a "LENS".
Also, check the Blue robot thing to have Wonder Chef appear and teach you
"Sweet Rice". Now leave the house.

 Go NW to the next area. Go S and from the Craymel Water Pump, go W to the next
area. You'll find Keele and Meredy here reading a ton of books. Return inside
to have the scene continue. Time to go to Luishka and meet Galenos. Now leave
Imen and go E to the white dot in your map to get to Imen Station.

 The Captain of the train tells you to bring fuel if you want to ride the
Craymel Express. Time to go back to Imen. Meredy gets a new title as you enter
Imen. Go to the Weapon Shop and examine the large orange container near Sagura.
Now buy the Train Cage from him for only 2,000 Gald. Wow... that was cheap. Now
that we have fuel, return to the Imen Station.

 Talk to the Captain then go inside the Craymel Express. After the little
scene, you'll start a mini game. Read the Controls for them (won't explain this
mini game) and deliver the mail in each station (red bars on top). Then you get
to Luishka Station. Watch the scene after you get off the Craymel Express and
enter Luishka Station when you get control of your character.

 There are some shops here. Buy the Great Sword for Reid if you want...

   <vin> It has more SLA and THR power, but it's ACC and EVA are horrible, so I
   recommend sticking with your Saw Saber.

 ... and buy a Memory Whistle to Meredy. Restock your Item and Ingredient
supply. Now leave the station and go E to find Luishka.

back and read. When you regain control, go up the stairs and enter the door.
Check the green box near the bed in front of you to have Wonder Chef appear and
teach you "Bitter Tofu".

 Return to the entrance and go E again to meet with Galenos. He tells us that
we need to go to Peruti to gather info about Balir's Castle. Leave and in the
area with the forking path, go NW from it and check the wooden box to have
Wonder Chef appear once again and teach you "Hot Borsch" this time.

 Return to Luishka Station and go to the Craymel Express. Talk to the captain
and tell him to go to the Abandoned Mine. Read the Controls and make your way

 After the scene, grab the lone chest to find 'Gold Bracelet'. Proceed inside
and enter the next room. We can rest up in here, so do so. Check out the open
cabinet and grab the Dynamite. Return outside and go E to the next area.  Blow
up the boulder to the S of the entrance with the Dynamite and before going S,
go all the way E to grab 'Savory'.

 Return to where you can rest and grab the Shovel now. Return to where you blew
up the boulder and go S to the next area. Operate the lever that's in front of
you and a chest with 'Hourglass' will appear. Now go NW from here to grab 'Ruby
Wand'. Return to the lever and go S to the next area.

 From the fork, go W then N to find 'Miracle Gel'. Return to the previous fork
(the one you took N) and go S to find 'Bellebane'. Return to the 4-way fork and
go E to find 'Rune Bottle'. Return and go S to the next area. In this rather
large area, go W then N to find 'Elixir'. Now go S from here to get to the next
area.

 Make a right at the beginning and dig in the wall where the hole is to find
'Colain's Pot'. Now open the chest to find 'Pine Gel'. Now go S and at the
fork, go S to find 'Lemon Gel' at the end. Return to the fork, go SE and use
the shovel to move the gravel blocking the way. You'll restore your HP. In the
next area (in the large area), go E to the next area.

 In the initial fork of the area, go all the way N and pull the lever to have a
chest with 'All-Divide' come out. Return a little bit and go E and remove the
gravel with the shovel. Return to the cabin and grab the Dynamite. Return to
where you grab the All-Divide and follow the path where you cleaned the gravel.
In this area, go S to the next area.

 Keep going S, open the chest to find 'Red Shield'. Equip it on Reid return to
the fork you just passed, go W then S and use the Dynamite to blow up the
boulder when you get to it. Return to the cabin and grab the Key now. Return to
where you blew up the boulder and use the Key to go down and trigger a scene.
Time to play WHIS.

 Just play until it's over. You'll receive 'WHIS' at the end. Go S through the
wall (NOT SE FOLLOWING THE PATH) and open the chest that contains 'Gnome Pick'.
Return and now follow the path SE and at the fork, go S and grab 'Bear Claw'
from the chest, then go S to the next area. Go E, grab 'Ogre Lance' and go to
the end of the path for 'Mythril Circlet'. Return to the previous area and go E
into the next one.

 Go to the NE corner of the room and pull the lever to have Dynamite come out.
Take it and go S and E to the next area. Blow the boulder and go E at the fork
to grab 'Rabbit's Foot' from the chest. Now go S to trigger a scene with Gnome.
Now you're in Gnome's Village.

 Talk to the Gnome next to the Load Crystal to have your HP and TP healed.
Check the SW corner of the area (where there's a Gnome saying "Pooo?") to find
a "LENS". Buy your items and ingredients, save your game and go E to the next
area, where Gnome resides. And you know what that means. Yep... Boss time!

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: GNOME  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: Gnome
- HP: 16,160
- XP: 3,000
- Gald: 2
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: Earth
    - Weak: Wind

- Strategy: Ok, this battle is a pain. Gnome may be big, but he's fast as f***.
IF you still have Reid's Assault Dagger, equip it to deal massive damage on
Gnome. Equip the Flare Capes you have and let's start with this battle. When
you see Gnome zooming in to you, jump!!! Otherwise, you'll receive a 20+ hit
from him. Another pain about this battle is that the little Gnomes in the
background are tossing boulders at you that deal around 150 dmg. per hit.
Insane.

Reid: Reid is your main damage dealer. With the Assault Dagger equipped, you'll
deal more than the normal dmg. Sweet! Use Reid and don't let Gnome get near
Meredy nor Keele.

Farah: Farah must be your supporter and keep Gnome busy attacking her and Reid.
Use everything in her arsenal and don't worry about her Healer. That's why we
have out Craymel Mages... to heal.

Meredy: Since Meredy is my healer, put her attack and offensive TP usage to 1,
while her defensive value should be at 5. Deactivate all of her Artes, except
for Heal and when you're able to summon Undine, do so to heal the complete
party.

Keele: My offensive Craymel Mage, Keele must have the same values as Meredy,
only that the offensive TP usage must be at 5 and the defensive should be at 1.
Deactivate all of Keele's Artes except Air Thrust. Also, put Sharpness and Air
Thrust in a shortcut and at the start of the
battle, have Keele use Sharpness on both you  .--------------------------------
and Farah, then focus on using Air Thrust.    |- Rewards:
Keep pressing the shortcut button as the Arte |     o Moon Crystal
is ending.                                    |     o Rune Bottle
                                              |
==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 Watch the scene after the battle and now Gnome will come with you. Sweetness!
Now go to the C.Cage and Fringe to create Gnome's Arte Stalagmite. Now, this is
my setup for the Craymels so far:

 M E R E D Y        K E E L E
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
o Undine           o Sylph
o Gnome            o Efreet

 This way, we can have Undine's Spread and Heal [with Sylph] (You can fringe
with Gnome later on for Acid Rain, but it's an Arte that only lowers a stat,
which I can't remember at the moment); and Gnome has Stalagmite and +Metal
Charge [with Sylph].

 On the other hand, we have Sylph with Air Thrust and Efreet has Eruption,
Sharpness [with Undine] and Flame Wall [with Gnome in the future]. It's best
setup in my opinion, but if you want to change it, be my guest. Now heal
yourself with the Gnome, return your Strategy to normal, your equipment to
normal and go W...

   <vin> Make sure you grabbed the Lens from the SW corner. You don't want to
   come back all the way down here, do you?

 ... to trigger a little scene with Gnome. Now go through the hole Gnome made
to be outside. Nice. Thanks Gnome. Once at the World Map, simply move to the
white dot to enter Hut.

 This is a really -- really long dungeon. Yep, dungeon. Even though it's a hut,
it's still a dungeon deep inside, so be prepared. After the little scene at the
entrance, try leaving and curtain will open. Go inside and enter the door at
the bottom. A scene triggers in here and now everyone is asleep. Now just where
are we?

 Return inside and check the clock on the wall to have Wonder Chef appear and
teach you "Honey Ramen". If you check the mask, you can insert Gald to receive:

- 200 Gald :: 1x Apple Gel
- 500 Gald :: 2x Apple Gel, 1x Orange Gel
- 1,000 Gald :: 2x Orange Gel, 1x Life Bottle

 Leave the room and go up the stairs to enter...

 B A S E M E N T   8
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Go to the E in this room through the door and in the hallway, enter the door
at the end. Grab the Toy Duck from the table and 'Pine Gel' from the chest.
Return to the hallway and enter the N door. Follow it until you get to a room
with 5 rod-things and 4 arrows. Remember how to get to this room and exit
through the S exit (where the arrow is pointing).

 Go W from here and examine the blue machine in the next room. Afterwards,
return to the main room...

   <vin> I'll be calling the room with the Load Crystal Main Room through the
   remaining of the dungeon. There are 8 levels and each one has its own Main
   Room.

 ... and make your way to the room with the 4 arrows. Examine them to lit them
and make the arrow spin. Examine all of them until the arrow is on the right.
Grab the 'Panacea Bottle' and return to this room (yes, you have to go around
all the place). Now make it point to the left and enter the next room. Grab the
Spring from the corner, exit the room and go to the Main Room.

 Examine the little hole with water and the door will now open. Now go up to...

 B A S E M E N T   7
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Go through the E door once again and into the last room. Open the chest for
'Soul Eater'.

   <vin> Although the Soul Eater is extremely powerful, it's Attribute is
   Shadow and most, if not all the enemies in this place are strong against
   Shadow. Not to mention it has -30 ACC, so that puts even more thought if
   whether you should equip it after the Hut dungeon. I suggest you do.

 Return to the Main Room and go W this time, all the way to the very end. If
you approach one of the armor suits in this room, you'll enter a battle. Now
open the chest to find 'Mythril Helm'. Return to the hallway and from the 3
doors on the NW wall, enter the last one. Grab 'Ghost Shell' from the chest.

   <vin> Just like with the Soul Eater, do not equip it as it's Shadow-based.

 Enter the next room (the one that had the rods in the previous floor) and
enter the left room once again and then exit through the S door. The armor suit
that falls has the Toy Duck, so pick it up. Return to the room that had the
rods in the previous floor (the one you just passed), enter the door N and
follow the path until you hit another armor suit and get the Spring for the
duck.

 Grab it, go to the Main Room and use the duck just like before. Now move up
to...

 B A S E M E N T   6
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 You'll see that the E door disappeared. No prob. Use your Sorcerer's Ring to
burn down the paper covering it. But instead of going there, go through the W
door, then through the upper door. Examine the barrel thing near the door to
have the wind start blowing. Leave the room and enter the lower door.

 In this room, the door is a fake and when you try to open it, you'll trigger a
battle. There's paper blowing on the N side, so burn down the paper just like
you did in the Main Room to have a door appear. Go through it to find 'Bloody
Robe' and the Toy Duck. Equip the Bloody Robe right away. Return to the Main
Room and go right this time.

 Enter the first door right away, then ignore the first door (it's a fake) and
burn down the paper to reveal the other door. Inside, the Spring is laying
here. Return to the Main Room and use the duck to proceed to...

 B A S E M E N T   5
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Go to the E in here and go to the door at the end. Step on the Question Mark
in the middle of the room and answer with "A map". Now grab 'Lemon Gel'. Return
to the hallway and go through the NW door and follow the path until you get to
another Question Mark. Answer with "Fog" to receive 'Melange Gel'. Now go
through the door on your right and once again stand on the Question Mark.
Answer with "Joke" to get the Spring for the Toy Duck.

 Return to the previous room and go through the W door and answer with "Mop" to
get 'Pine Gel'. Go S from this room and go into the W door in the hallway.
Answer with "Sweater" to get the Toy Duck. Now return to the Main Room and use
the duck to get to...

 B A S E M E N T   4
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Like always, go E and all the way to the end. Go inside the wardrobe to find
the Spring. Leave this room and return to the Main Room. Go W this time and
enter the door at the end of the hallway. Check the box in the SW corner to
find "LENS". Now enter the NW door and grab the Toy Duck. Return to the Main
Room and use the duck to get to...

 B A S E M E N T   3
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 We're about to get out of here, so just hang in there. Go W this time and
enter the first door on your left. Grab the Spring in here, go W and grab 'Pine
Gel' and 'Blue Talisman'. Move to the W and push the statue on the switch. Exit
through the S door and pull/push the statue in middle of the conveyor belt then
walk into the door. Grab the Toy Duck and return to the Main Room. Use the duck
to get to...

 B A S E M E N T   2
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Go E and onto the door at the end. Grab the Toy Duck in here and check the
painting in the wall (it's Stahn from Tales of Destiny). Move it so the head is
facing W (6 times). Return to the hallway and go through the NW door. When you
get to another painting (Philia from Tales of Destiny), make is face S (4
times) and go W to find 'Emerald Ring'. Return to the Main Room and go W this
time.

 Go to the last room and grab the Spring. Now check the picture (Rutee also
from Tales of Destiny) to have it face E (2 times). A little sound is heard.
Return to the Main Room and use the duck to get to...

   <vin> The sound you head made the switch inside the hole appear.

 B A S E M E N T   1
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 We are finally here. As always, go to the E and go to the end. Move the
barrels in here until you're able to get the Toy Duck (don't worry, it's not
that hard). Now check the box next to the bread (E of the aquarium, the one
that has little "pebbles" in it) to find the last "LENS" here. Return to the
Main Room and go W this time.

 Enter the last of the three doors to find '4,000 Gald'. Leave the room from
the S and enter the W door. Grab all the books on the floor and grab the red
one between the blue ones on the right shelf. Now put all the books in place
(just press X in front of the shelves) and a door between them will open. Grab
the Spring in here and return to the Main Room.

 Use the Toy Duck and an enemy will appear in front of the door. That means...
a Boss Fight!

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: GUARDIAN  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: Guardian
- HP: 30,000
- XP: 3,000
- Gald: 210
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: Volt
    - Weak: Water, Fire, Ice

- Strategy: This enemy is fast. Fastest enemy so far. He has an attack that hit
multiple times to all those in front of him, sorta like a machine gun. And each
hit will do around 100+ dmg. per hit. His blade is mortal, so try to stay
behind him at all time. Using weapons with Water, Fire and/or Ice attributes
(no ice yet) will bring him down even quicker. He doesn't have that much
defense, so you'll take great chuncks of HP per combo.

Reid: Make sure to equip your Soul Eater. If you see that it's not hitting him
enough, change out to either an Earth Blade (if you got one at Mine of Gnome)
or your Demon Javelin or the Flamberge. Remember to have Reid attack him
nonstop and use items if you have to. He's the item man in this battle.

Farah: Good old Farah must stick to the basics, help Reid hit Guardian and
keeping him from targeting Meredy and/or Keele. Have her use Healer if you need
to, otherwise, stick to attacking Guardian nonstop.

Meredy: Meredy should stick on using Spread and Heal throughout the battle. Use
Heal only if you need to, but stick with Spread. Have her cast is over and over
through the battle. Since Guardian is weak against Water, it'll take huge
chuncks of HP. If you have Undine, DO NOT hesitate in using her, since we'll be
needing the HP restoration.

Keele: Same as Meredy. Have Keel use
Sharpness on both you and Farah as the fight  .--------------------------------
starts. Once done that, stick on using        |- Rewards:
Eruption over and over and over. It's even    |     o Rune Bottle
better than Spread, trust me.                 |     o Pine Gel

==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 Enter the door after the fight and you'll be at the beginning (the entrance of
the hut). Yay! Ship time! Go talk to her and tell her you'll be her deck hands.
Now you'll be outside the ship. Amazing, isn't it? Welcome to the Van Eltia.
Once inside Val Eltia, return outside and go to the NE corner of the area and
check the E side to find 'All-Divide'.

 Return inside the Van Eltia and go up the electrical ladder to trigger another
scene with Chat. Now check behind the machine Chat was hugging to find "LENS".
Follow Chat and tell her you would like to depart to trigger a nice animated
cutscene.

 Now we can go wherever we please... not. You'll only be able to go to Peruti
for now, and it'll go automatically, so see ya there!

 After the scene where Keele freezes, go W into the next area. Go W and enter
the N building. Here you can buy ingredients, but not at this point. Also,
check the heater next to the counter on the right side to have Wonder Chef
appear and teach you "Spicy Shrimp". Return outside and go W into the next
area.

 Enter the first building, which is the Weapon and Armor shop. From here, buy:
For Reid -- Destroyer, Plate Mail. For Farah -- Crystal Shell, Tartan Ribbon.
For Meredy -- Tartan Robe, Gold Bracelet. For Keele -- Skull Staff, Gold
Bracelet. It's going to be 86,400 Gald for this, so I hope you have enough Gald
to pay (heck, I had over 200,000 Gald at this point).

 Leave and enter the building next to it. Inside, talk to the red-haired man on
the left of the heater to trigger a little scene. Rest here if you want, then
go up the stairs and enter the second door. Check out the snowman to have
Wonder Chef appear and teach you "Sushi". Also, check the heater in this room
to get 'Apple Gel'... but it's crisped XD.

 Now exit the Inn and go W into the next area. The man you met at the Inn will
come out of the building and tell you good luck. Now enter the Mountain Gear
Shop, the one the man came out from. Now you get to pick an outfit for each
one:

Reid: Talk to the shop owner
Farah: Poncho
Keele: Heavy Cloak
Meredy: Cape

 Now leave Peruti and in the World Map, simply go NW to enter Mt. Celsius.

   <vin> Important Note :: Equip Reid with the Flamberge through the entire
   dungeon. It may have lower attack than Destroyer, but it's Fire Attribute
   deals more dmg.

 We start this dungeon with Efreet crapping fire... hahaha! Seriously. Now
proceed N to the next area. Open the chests N of you to find 'Elixir' and 'Aqua
Cape'. Now go up the stairs N to the next area. Grab 'Rune Bottle' at the end
of the path.

 Return to the area with the 2 chests and go E under the stairs to the next
area. Go N from here to the next area. Go N to the next area. Enter the Igloo
to find a Camping Site. Also, open the chest to find 'Syrup Bottle'. Exit and
grab 'Freeze Charm' from the chest here. Now go N to the next area.

 This area has 3 paths to follow. Go W, open the chest with 'Syrup Bottle' in
it and continue W to the next area. The path forks once again. Go up the left
one and melt down the iceberg on your right (with your Sorcerer's Ring) to
trigger a fight and reveal a chest with 'Life Bottle' in it. Now go NE to the
next area. Melt the iceberg and grab 'Life Bottle' from the chest.

 Now go E and open the chest to find 'Silver Cloak'. Now go NE, melt the
iceberg and proceed NE. Walk over the crevice below to fall down. Examine the
snow that fell with you to get "LENS". Go S one screen, then W, then NE at the
next one (you'll be right back where you fell). Go from where you fell and open
the chest for 'Sage'.

 Go N a little, melt the iceberg and grab 'Battle Pick' and 'Miracle Gel'.
There are 3 paths to your W. Follow the middle one and grab 'Syrup Bottle'.
Return and take the top path and open the wooden box here to find 'Toto Oil'.
Return to the previous area and go down the lower path. In this area, go NW and
examine the red pillar to use the Toto Oil and burn it down.

 Go N, melt the iceberg and go NE to find 'All-Divide'. Return and go NW this
time. You will find Celsius here. After the little scene, you'll have to fight
her, as per usual.

--=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----

   ~-~  BOSS: CELSIUS  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

- Name: Celsius
- HP: 33,333
- XP: 4,000
- Gald: 0
  - Elemental Info.:
    - Strong: Ice
    - Weak: Fire

- Strategy: Celsius is one tough chick to crack. Her attacks are precise, quick
and on top of that, deathly. Make sure you have stuff that prevents Freeze,
because you'll get a lot of it. Having Accessories like Aqua Cape to drop the
dmg. is recommended, but not necessarily. It's really hard to hit her, because
she evades them with a lot of ease. Stay close to her at all times and attack
nonstop. You can't let her even move, otherwise, you'll regret it.

 If you keep dying (like I did my first time playing this game), use an All-
Divide. It'll cut to half the dmg. she does, but so does the dmg. you do. It'll
take more time, but it'll be easier.

Reid: Equipped with the Flamberge, use skills nonstop and don't give her an
opening to attack. Along with Farah, make sure to keep her away from Keele and
Meredy, since you'll be needing the healing Artes and the Fire Artes. Use items
with Reid, because the main source of dmg. comes from Keele's Eruption.

Farah: Just like with Reid, have Farah attack with skills nonstop to maintain
Celsius away from the Craymel Mages. If you need to, also use items with Farah,
but don't use Healer unless it's really important. You can leave Meredy with
the healing.

Meredy: Meredy will heal throughout the battle. Have her use Heal over and over
and over even if you don't need it. In 3 seconds, Celsius can leave you on the
edge of death, so you never know when you'll need the HP.

Keele: Main guy in this battle. Keele must    .--------------------------------
use Eruption over and over. Keep a shortcut   |- Rewards:
for his Eruption and keep pressing it as he   |     o Resist Ring
ends his cast. If he dies, revive immediately.|     o Freeze Charm
                                              |
==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---=='========----====-=======---=====

 Watch the scene with the Greater Craymels. Poor Efreet... XD! She'll give you
'Freeze Ring', which is basically the same as the Sorcerer's Ring, only that it
shoots ice this time. Before leaving, open the chests to find 'Elixir',
'Lavender' and 'Hourglass'.

   <vin> Now that we have Celsius, think really hard in where to put her.
   Remember the setup I have with the Greater Craymels?

    M E R E D Y        K E E L E
   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
   o Undine           o Sylph
   o Gnome            o Efreet

   If you give Celsius to Meredy, Celsius will learn Blizzard [with Sylph] and
   +Freeze Guard [with Efreet] (totally useless at this point). On the other
   hand, if you give Keele Celsius, she will learn Resist [with Gnome] and
   Undine will learn Nurse [with Celsius] (this is like Heal, but to the entire
   party). Personally, I picked to give it to Keele, so I can have Nurse. I
   occasionally change her to Meredy just to spice things up, but you may do as
   you please.

 Heal up using the Load Crystal and make your way out of here and return to
Peruti.

 Watch the scene as you enter. Wow, Guston wants use to join the Shileska
Freedom Army. Time to go to Tinnsia. You'll receive 'Miacis Badge' from Guston.
Afterwards, you'll also receive 'Celestia Map'. Leave the Inn and go NW to the
next area. Go around the pond and check the brown statue to have Wonder Chef
appear and teach you "Cold Noodles".

 Now go NW and locate the blue/purplish stand. Search the tree behind it to
find "LENS". Return to the Ingredient shop and search the box filled with crabs
outside to find another "LENS". Restock your ingredient supply (you may need
to) and return to the Van Eltia.

fell in love madly with it. Thanks man.

have a blast talking to them on AIM, MSN and the FCBS. They all inspire me in
writing more and more FAQ's. Note that all these fellows are FAQ writers as
myself, so I thank them too for supporting me in my FAQing.
