P12C: Academia AF4XX

As you will recall we only briefly visited this zone to grab the Silver Chocobo in order to proceed with mastering the Chocobo Racing mini-game -- but now it is time for us to return to this much brighter, much happier alternate reality so that we can strip it of all the good stuff it has to offer and maybe uncover a few more secrets in the process...

Before we do anything else (or think about heading to the Academy HQ again) take a look at your map and you will notice that there are areas (some very small) that are still dark and unexplored.  We need to make an effort now to clear those areas, so head through them and you will, in the process, obtain the following items:

-- Facts Gate Seal from a Treasure Chest in front of Academy HQ.
-- Gold Casino Ticket from a Treasure Sphere outside the Academy HQ Gate.
-- 1200 Gil from a Treasure Sphere in a shop off of Grand Avenue.
-- A Gold Gear from a Treasure Sphere inside a shop on the east side of the town.

On the left side as you leave the HQ you will encounter a half-formed Gate that you can examine for a hit at a future mission...  

-- Brain Blast --

The Academy-sponsored quiz game that can be found at terminals marked in purple on the map is just what it sounds like -- a quiz game!  There are several terminals and each one will award you with a special prize for getting all of the questions correct.

Each terminal has a large list of questions that it can ask -- I have included the ones that I was asked in the many times that I have played the terminals but there may be some that I was never asked...  I recorded the questions and answers until I played a match in which there was no new question and then called it a day mostly because there could be a huge list of questions -- if you run in to one that is not included below I suggest you Google it.

There are ten questions to the official quiz, and you should be aware that every so often they throw in a question that is purely luck based -- like guessing Odds or Evens -- and you really just have to be lucky to get the correct answer...  But I have found that more often than not when the questions are left and right, that 'X' is usually correct, and up and down, 'Y' is usually correct -- but that is not true all the time so don't blame me if you get it wrong mates.

The Academy HQ Brain Blast Terminal and Fragment

-- Academy HQ Terminal --

Your reward for getting all 10 questions right the first time with this terminal is 500 CP and the Stoic Virtue Fragment.

-- Back on Task --

When you ace the last quiz to get the third prize you are informed that you have obtained perfect scores in all of the different quiz terminals and that your name will be added to the list in the Academy database.  Well done mates!  Well done indeed!  Not only did you get your name in the lists but you scored four Fragments and some nice prizes for your troubles!

You should have also cleared the map 100% -- if you did not look carefully on the east side of the center of the map, where there is a very shallow shop on the south side of the avenue that you might not have cleared as it is sort of on a narrow side strip running parallel to the main avenue as part of it...   Getting the map to 100% is one of our remaining tasks...

Obtaining the Wild Artifact and Opening the Vile Peaks Gate

Heading back towards the east side of the center area as you cross the bridge between the two sides be sure to access the data terminal in the middle to learn about the Thirteenth Ark...  There is a Chocolina here if you need her as well, otherwise continue to the east side and then head to the southeast corner of this area bottom-most (watch the video above if you cannot find it) to find a hidden Wild Artifact by a closed set of doors -- you should grab this as there is a Gate we want to open in this zone and this way you will have the Artifact to open it!

With that Wild Artifact in your possession, head north to the other side of the east side almost straight above you and open the Gate for Vile Peaks AF010.  You just need to open the Gate so that it is added to the Historia Crux and then head right back to Academia AF4XX.

-- Back in Academia AF4XX --

Now we have managed most of the mischief that we needed to manage here -- so it is time to head back towards the Academy HQ.  Enter the outer lobby of the HQ and look for a man with a chat bubble -- that is Dr. M.  Talk to him to flag the mission Fragment: Academic Rank: Monster Professor now.  Accept the mission and note that he wants you to show him your personal database on every Monster in the known worlds...  And times.  Obviously you do not have that in the bag now, and it is a long-term mission, so just be sure you try to capture / tame every Monster you can, and battle the ones you cannot to get their records completed!

Now we have dealt with everything we needed to outside of HQ, so head through the doors to the north and into the inner lobby -- ignore Hope for the moment and talk to Alyssa to learn about what Hope has been doing, and to learn about the battle with the Proto fal'Cie and all that did not happen because of Serah...  Talk to Alyssa a second time and she then tells you about the Time Capsule -- with maybe not as many details as you would like -- Alyssa and Serah have some girl bonding, and then another chat bubble appears over her head.

Your Meeting with Hope and Alyssa at Academy HQ

Talk to her again to learn about the Thirteenth Ark -- and about the Graviton Cores -- which you need to collect for them.  That was the good news.  The bad news is that Hope has determined that they need multiple cores -- but then we were going to find them anyway, right?

Now talk to Hope and he explains why they came to the future.  After you get the first Datalog updated notice, talk to Hope again for an LT event -- it does not seem to matter which of the chat choices you make -- but ask the question you are the most curious about since you get a specific response to your question.  When this conversation ends a Treasure Cube appears nearby containing the Crystal Star Adornment (the LT reward) so go grab that.

You will notice that Alyssa has a Quest Mark over her head -- that is to go to her to turn in the Graviton Core Fragments -- but if you check your Fragment Library you will note that you only have five of the seven cores at the moment -- so it is not the time to turn them into her just now.

If you run a little north of where you talked to Hope and Alyssa and look down to the next level you will notice a Treasure Sphere happily bouncing around down there -- toss Moogle at it to grab a Platinum Casino Ticket to go with the Gold one you got earlier outside...

You may have run across Captain Cryptic outside -- he also has quiz questions that he will ask and rewards Fragments for them, but right now we are not interested in dealing with that -- it will be dealt with as a separate section later in the guide, so just pass over that for now if you like -- or head to the section set aside for it and get it out of the way, either choice works for me!

You should also bear in mind that if you have been throwing Moogle around in the different sub-areas of the zone you will be obtaining some interesting loot -- I only mention that to remind you to do it, right?

And that nicely wraps up the zone!
