Welcome to my 100% completion guide for Dragon Quest 8. The purpose of this guide is to help those who have already played through the game at least once to collect every single item and fill out every chart from alchemy, items and monsters including their drops. I highly recommend you use this guide on at least your second time through because you will be buying a whole lot of items you won't use for half the game in preparation of an alchemy formula as well as not buying useful equipment as you'd get it later. Also I will only list the alchemy fomulas as you attain enough ingredients to do every single formula in which that ingredient is used. Since you will then in theory be low on money and have sub-par items unless you do alot of fighting you need to know what to do in order to survive. I only mention the casino items once the Baccarat casino is unlocked as it is way easier to get tokens there and starting at that point if you are low on money I suggest buying Prayer Rings en masse and selling them as they give the best return and the price never goes down. Also I do not mention any prizes from Morries Monstrous Pit until you meet Marta for the first time as around Orkutsk you will find Cybot and Roborg whom with Talos can easily take you past the dreaded B ranking as opposed to relying on luck beforehand. As I go through the game I am being perfectionist in a crazed sort of way in which I refuse to have a single defeat, run away or intimidation on my records on top of the fact that since the game records your stats for when you beat the game the first time, I am also trying for a speed run so as to have a good time recorded. This means that I won't be levelling or getting gold, just getting all the items and moving on ASAP but that I also will fight every battle and if I lose, hit reset and start from where I left off. My strategies (however short they may be) are revolved around this and adhere very strictly to this guide so that I'm not leading you falsely. If you do a bit of levelling or item buying not mentioned by this list, that is a good way to make life easier for you. Finally I am basing alot of preparation upon a single set of ultimate equipment for everyone which includes their best weapon of all 4 types and any equipment which changes their appearance. Yours is likely different than mine and it will affect what items you need. At the end when all of the formulas are know it will be easy enough to make whatever you want anyways. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Version: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 1.0 - Walkthrough completed up to and including beating the Lord of the Dragovians. Though there is currently a strategy on how to beat his forms, I will eventually remove it in favor of a generalized set of strategies for those who had a different setup than I throughout the game. I also plan on adding in a skill list since 100% completion would include getting 120 Seeds of Skill to get every skill for everyone as well as some ideas on how to use those skills to your advantage throughout the game. Also planning on doing another playthrough in which I write down where within towns and dungeons you find treasures, didn't consider it early enough to implement it this time but it allows me more reason to play a game where I use all the skill sets I never touched until now. Version 1.1 - Fixed up a missed treasure chest and more importantly added in a section to give credit where credit is due. I sincerely apologize for having missed it before. Version 1.2 - Added several treasures I missed in the making of the guide again, hopefully the last additions. Also added in how to unlock monster animations in the monster drop section, though uncomplete as of yet at least current findings are mentioned. Section 1: Walkthrough Section 2: Remaining Items and Alchemy Formulas Section 3: Arena Monsters Section 4: Monster Drops Section 5: Item Lists and Alchemy Requirements -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Section 1: Walkthrough -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --- FAREBURY --- After getting items talk to Kalderasha in the pub to open up the series of events to send you out on the quest for his crystal ball, nice and easy. _ |_| 4 Gold Coins |_| Holy Water |_| Plain Clothes |_| Chimaera Wing |_| 7 Gold Coins |_| Antidotal Herb |_| Cypress Stick |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Antidotal Herb |_| 3 Gold Coins |_| 5 Gold Coins |_| Antidotal Herb |_| Medicinal Herb |_| 10 Gold Coins |_| Leather Shield |_| 8 Gold Coins |_| Plain Clothes |_| 20 Gold Coins |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Pot Lid |_| Seed of Defence |_| Medicinal Herb |_| 2 Gold Coins |_| 4 Gold Coins |_| Thief's Key recipe (By church bell at night) Buy (145 Gold Coins total needed) _ |_| 4 Cypress Sticks |_| 1 Bandit's Grass Skirt |_| 1 Leather Shield --- FAREBURY REGION --- Since you are level 1 you may want to stick around town for a day just to get a level or two before searching around too far, otherwise soon enough you'll be taking down enemies in a single hit and be basically invincible once Hero gets Heal so on to the Waterfall Cave East of town. _ |_| Seed of Life (North of West entrance to Farebury) |_| Boxer Shorts (West of Farebury, North of the road) |_| 82 Gold Coins (Far east side of the Region) |_| Tool Bag (By Red Tree East of town) |_| Seed of Agility (Waterfall Hut) |_| Holy Water (Waterfall Hut) |_| Plain Cheese [x8] (Waterfall Hut, Talk to Woodsman) --- WATERFALL CAVE --- After getting all the items in the Region I was level 6 by the time I reached Geyser. Having Yangus use herbs and the Hero cast Heal when needed and attacking when not, it was an easy enough battle. _ |_| Map of Waterfall Cave |_| Chimaera Wing |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Leather Hat |_| Copper Sword |_| Crystal Ball (Beat Boss) --- FROM CHECKPOINT TO ALEXANDRIA--- Here you will start losing alot of life from enemies making life tricky especially if you save your money for the items I tell you to buy which unfortunately doesn't happen to be any in Alexandria. _ |_| Slime Earrings (After Checkpoint bridge to the Right on a hill) |_| 100 Gold Coins (Just East of town North of the road, past Alexandria) --- ALEXANDRIA --- Once you're accosted by children and rob the villagers, send Munchie into Jessica's room to get her Letter and let Bangerz know so you can get into the tower. _ |_| Medicinal Herb |_| 11 Gold Coins |_| Holy Water |_| Chimaera Wing |_| 5 Gold Coins |_| Plain Cheese |_| Wayfarer's Clothes |_| Moonwort Bulb |_| 18 Gold Coins |_| Seed of Magic |_| Jessica's Letter --- TOWER OF ALEXANDRIA --- If you have Yangus using Scythes (maybe even if not) you may want to consider heading to Port Prospect first to pick up a Farmer's Scythe to make life easy for yourself in the Tower. I personally use scythes for no reason other than to steal about 20 items throughout the course of the entire game since it helps complete the monster drop list. Other than that, Since I went to Port Prospect I was level 9 when I went into the Tower and had no real troubles, even had half my magic left by the end. _ |_| Map of Tower of Alexandria |_| Seed of Agility |_| Moonwort Bulb |_| 22 Gold Coins |_| 11 Gold Coins |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Seed of Strength |_| 7 Gold Coins |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Antidotal Herb |_| Scale Shield --- ALEXANDRIA TO PORT PROSPECT--- Careful on the beach as the enemies there can swarm and slaughter you with the crappy equipment I am asking you to wear. _ |_| Seed of Strength (Southmost part of the beach) |_| Seed of Life (Directly East of Port Prospect, by the cliffs) |_| Jessica's Outfit (In Jessica's Room in Alexandria) --- PORT PROSPECT --- I had plenty for the Farmer's Scythe as I am buying only what is on my own lists during my playthrough. Be sure to rest up and save before talking to Jess in the Lighthouse and also give Yangus some Medicinal Herbs. _ |_| Seed of Wisdom |_| Chimaera Wing |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Holy Water |_| 17 Gold Coins Buy (910 Gold Coins total needed) _ |_| 1 Farmer's Scythe --- FERRY --- Despite only having to do one battle on the way, it's a tricky one if you are keeping your equipment low to save money as I am but it's not too bad if you prepare right. I was on level 10 and had put all my skill points into Scythes for Yangus and he was my only attacker. Khalamari follows a simple pattern of Fire Breath which did 35 damage to the Hero and 30 to Yangus, then a Regular Attack which dealt about 25 damage to either followed by a group attack which did just under 20 damage to each. Then he'd attack, then group attack and finally another regular attack before repeating the whole process. If you keep the Hero on constant healing duty and have Yangus Psyche up to 50 (which had him deal over 150 damage each time) he will die in 3 hits and you should be both alive if you have Yangus use an Herb if and when needed. Since anyone could have their turn at any time it is based a bit on luck so if you don't have the patience I do, gain another level or two before trying. _ |_| Gold Bracer (Given after beating Boss) |_| Antidotal Herb |_| 12 Gold Coins |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Pot Lid |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Seed of Life |_| Seed of Agility |_| 10 Gold Coins |_| Bronze Knife --- PEREGUIN QUAY --- The second you get here, head into the building and talk to the guy who looks like a bandit to get the Iron Nail and then use that and the Bronze knife in the Alchemy Pot. This goes against not making stuff until you have all the ingredients needed fo each formula which uses the item but this is the only instance of doing so as it would be silly to wait until an enemy drops the final one you need as you do not find enough and the Thief's Key is extremely useful until Trodain. At this point run around and take all the valuables and if the Key is not done by then keep running until it is. Once it is done, open the chests outside to unlock a store and get 200 Gold Coins which gave me just enough to buy all the items needed and have a mere 21 Gold Coins left. _ |_| 8 Gold Coins |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Leather Kilt |_| Chimaera Wing |_| Oaken Club |_| Antidotal Herb |_| Seed of Defence |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Seed of Magic |_| Iron Nail (Talk to man at Inn) Buy (1476 Gold Coins total needed) _ |_| 4 Bronze Knifes |_| 1 Thorn Whip |_| 6 Bandanas (Must unlock final store by opening chests) |_| 2 Holy Waters |_| 27 Medicinal Herbs (Whatever herbs you need whenever you need them) Recipes _ |_| Bronze Knife + Iron Nail |_| Plain Clothes + Plain Clothes |_| Bandana + Bandana |_| Bandana + Bandit's Grass Skirt |_| Chimaera Wing + Leather Hat |_| 15x Medicinal Herb + Medicinal Herb |_| 2x Medicinal Herb + Antidotal Herb |_| Holy Water + Seed of Magic Recipes after Recipes _ |_| 6x Strong Medicine + Strong Medicine |_| Medicinal Herb + Strong Medicine |_| Strong Medicine + Holy Water |_| Strong Antidote + Strong Antidote Recipes after Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Special Medicine + Special Medicine --- TREASURE HUNT (Thief's Key) --- These among many other treasures are why you should make the Thief's Key immediately, when it is done you can do some treasure hunting and get alot more chests later on before Trodain. _ |_| 200 Gold Coins (Pereguin Quay) |_| Boomerang (Pereguin Quay) |_| Mini Medal (Pereguin Quay) |_| Cypress Stick (Farebury, weapon shop) |_| Dagger (Farebury, weapon shop) |_| Mini Medal (Farebury, church) |_| Mini Medal (Southeast of Farebury) Recipes _ |_| Cypress Stick + Dagger --- PEREGUIN QUAY TO SIMPLETON--- When you leave the town, 2 of the chests are to the right of the road while 4 are on the left side and the final one is past Maella Abbey. Right now there is no reason to stop off at the Abbey so head past it for now to Simpleton. _ |_| Magic Water (West of town in ruins) |_| Feathered Cap (East of town on a pedastal) |_| Seed of Strength (South-East of the Barn, follow the cliff) |_| Seed of Wisdom (Past the Strangth Seed turn East) |_| Seed of Magic (Far East of ruins North of town by the cliff) |_| Stone Axe (West of Abbey in a forest on other side of the hill) |_| Bunny Tail (Between Abbey and Simpleton, South of Simpleton) --- SIMPLETON --- All there is to do here is in the Pub so once there get the 2 items and talk to Angelo before returning to the Abbey. _ |_| 6 Gold Coins |_| Mini Medal |_| Templar's Ring (Given by Angelo) --- MAELLA ABBEY --- Just a bit of running around to do here, after heading to the basement and seeing Angelo berrated, head out the back entrance and return to the Abbey to have him stop you and send you out to the Ruined Abbey which if you start to head out of town towards Simpleton is just to your left. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal |_| Holy Water |_| 26 Gold Coins --- RUINED ABBEY --- Nothing that tricky in here to worry about and if you're lucky you may even pick off a Metal Slime or two before you finish. I was level 14 when I got to the boss and all I did was to have everyone psyche up to 20 and hit him with everyone. He should die in just a few more hits after that and you will be fully healed afterwards. I got very lucky and he summoned his 2 guys right before my hero hit which let me kill one and almost kill the other before they could act. _ |_| Map of Ruined Abbey |_| Cannibox |_| Iron Nail |_| Mini Medal |_| Bronze Shield |_| Mini Medal |_| Waterweed Mould |_| 50 Gold Coins |_| Bandit's Grass Skirt --- MAELLA ABBEY (After Abbots Death) --- Ahhh, nice to feel appreciated for saving people eh? Anywho, once you leave the barn head back to town for more cutscenes and finally talk to Marcello to get your last member and the ever-useful World Map before heading East again. _ |_| Mini Medal (Behind tower) |_| World Map (Get from Marcello) --- FROM SIMPLETON TO ASCANTHA --- Not a bad area, most of the treasures are centered around the bridge halfway to Ascantha with the last few around Ascantha itself, all mostly along the river as well instead of hidden in the middle of nowhere. _ |_| Mini Medal (House by river) |_| Silk Robe (House by river) |_| 230 Gold Coins (North of path to beach North of house by river) |_| Chain Mail (South of river by mountain valley North of house by river) |_| Seed of Magic (Riverside Chapel) |_| Fresh Milk (Right Beside Riverside Chapel) |_| Seed of Life (South of house by river along the river) |_| Seed of Agility (North of the Riverside Chapel West around the bend) |_| 3 Fresh Milks (Talk to cows by road right by Ascantha) |_| 1 Fresh Milk (Talk to cow just South of Ascantha) |_| Seed of Defence (North end of beach South of Ascantha) |_| 154 Gold Coins (Behind Ascantha) --- ASCANTHA --- Once in Ascantha wait until night and then talk to the mopey king before leaving. On your way out the maid will stop you and ask you to talk to her grandma who lives in a house by the Riverside Chapel. The grandma will tell you how to get to Wisher's Peak via a path behind her house. You should have plenty for the items to buy here. _ |_| Lady's Ring (Ground in Well) |_| Rennet Powder |_| Mini Medal |_| Plain Clothes |_| Mini Medal |_| 42 Gold Coins |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Red Mould |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Wisdom (Show Lady's Ring to man in Farebury) Buy (3090 Gold Coins total needed) _ |_| 1 Short Bow |_| 1 Edged Boomerang |_| 1 Bronze Armour |_| 4 Moonwort Bulbs Recipes _ |_| Chain Mail + Bronze Shield |_| Strong Medicine + Moonwort Bulb --- WISHER'S PEAK --- Another easy dungeon only this one has no boss even, instead there's something worse. An unskippable cutscene. Not too bad the first time through but 3 times in you'll start getting annoyed probably. Just be sure to be patient at the top of the hill for the door to appear. _ |_| Wizard's Staff |_| Map of Wisher's Peak |_| Templar's Shield Recipes _ |_| Wayfarer's Clothes + Templar's Shield --- MORRIE'S PLACE (Monster Hunting) --- Along the way to Pickham, you will see a fort and when you talk to the guy on top who always has a breeze coming from his left side, he'll send you monster hunting. One is the suit of armor you saw on the way to the Ruined Abbey, another is on the beach south of Red's later on, and the last is in front of Trodain castle when you get there. _ |_| Morrie's Memo #1 |_| Morrie's Memo #2 |_| Morrie's Memo #3 --- PICKHAM --- Once you learn that brains isn't at home, head to the pub and tell the good old king so that Medea is stolen. After talking to Dodgy dave in the other Pub you can find the crook in the abandoned house by the watchtower and he'll tell ya he sold it to Red wh lives Southwest of town. As for the items, I had plenty of money for the stuff that I could use but had to get a few things when I got back from the next dungeon. _ |_| 2 Fresh Milk (Talk to cows right in front of town) |_| Eros' Bow recipe (By Watchtower, not there yet but return to check) |_| Bunny Tail |_| Rennet Powder |_| 12 Gold Coins |_| Chain Mail |_| Seed of Life |_| Holy Water |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal |_| Amor Seco Essence |_| Cowpat |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Strength |_| 26 Gold Coins |_| Boxer Shorts |_| Mini Medal |_| 30 Gold Coins |_| Seed of Wisdom |_| Waterweed Mould |_| Magic Water |_| 35 Gold Coins |_| Red Mould |_| Fresh Milk |_| 1,000 Gold Coins (Gotten from horse-napper) |_| Mini Medal (In Dodgy Dave's) Buy (7050 Gold Coins total needed) _ |_| 1 Poison Moth Knife |_| 1 Iron Helmet |_| 3 Iron Shields |_| 2 Dancer's Costumes |_| 2 Amor Seco Essences Recipes _ |_| Hairband + Bunny Tail |_| Plain CHeese + Amor Seco Essence |_| Fresh Milk + Rennet Powder --- SWORDSMAN'S LABYRINTH REGION --- Nothing really to worry about in this area, you may want to stop off in the Labyrinth while item hunting however just so that you can warp directly there after going to an inn. _ |_| 450 Gold COins (Dead End between Red's house and Pickham) |_| Leather Whip (East of Red's House) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow on a hill West of the Labyrinth) |_| Iron Shield (North end of coast West of Labyrinth) |_| Farmer's Scythe (East of Labyrinth past the swamp on a hill) Recipes _ |_| Farmer's Scythe + Farmer's Scythe |_| Iron Shield + Iron Shield |_| Leather Whip + Scale Shield |_| Leather Whip + Bandana |_| Templar's Uniform + Iron Shield --- RED'S HOUSE --- Just got to say hi to Red here before skedaddling. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Hairband |_| Mini Medal --- SWORDSMAN'S LABYRINTH --- I was level 19 by the time I made it to the boss and while I was 1 level away from Jessica getting Oomph, Angelo had Kabuff which became my new best friend. The enemies in the dungeon itself weren't too bad as long as I kept healed but I was rather low on magic by the end. Wasn't a big problem however as with Angelo constantly using Kabuff he eventually was doing only 1 damage against me. His other attacks which were rarely used were to cast Crackle, make an armor piercing desperate attack which did about 80 damage and to try to inflict confuse on you. He did this to Jessica who was then gone for the rest of the battle due to paralysis. Just use Tension and keep your health up and Kabuff on and you will be safe. _ |_| Cowpat |_| Map of Swordsman's Labyrinth |_| Cannibox |_| 11 Gold Coins |_| Seed of Magic |_| 62 Gold Coins |_| Red Mould |_| Mini Medal |_| Antidotal Herb |_| Mini Medal |_| Kitty Shield |_| Mini Medal |_| Venus' Tear (From Boss) --- HILLTOP HUT --- After saying hello to Red and Brains it's time to head back to Perequin Quay where the rockslide is gone and over to the Hilltop Hut. If you spend a night or two here, you will see King Trode fix up the Alchemy Pot and wink at you meaning it can now hold 3 ingredients. YAY!!! Unfortunately there's nothing good to make yet, but it's something to tide you over if you're running low on recipes to make. _ |_| Slime Crown |_| Mini Medal Recipes _ |_| Cypress Stick + Cypress Stick + Iron Lance |_| Medicinal Herb + Medicinal Herb + Medicinal Herb |_| Medicinal Herb + Antidotal Herb + Antidotal Herb |_| Medicinal Herb + Medicinal Herb + Moonwort Bulb |_| Moonwort Bulb + Moonwort Bulb + Moonwort Bulb |_| Medicinal Herb + Antidotal Herb + Moonwort Bulb |_| Rose Root + Rose-Wort + Lesser Panacea |_| Special Medicine + Special Medicine + Special Medicine --- KINGDOM OF TRODAIN --- From the Hut there's a simple foray across the valley where you'll get to learn that you're right by Trodain and that it would be best to go there unless you plan on dragging the ship by your teeth. The enemies here aren't really dangerous at all but if you need to, once you head through the short tunnel, there is a chapel to rest and save midway there. Once you reach the castle you can also finally start hunting for recruitable monsters as you'll find the last of Morries monsters here right in front of the castle. The other two are along the path to the Ruined Abbey by Maella Abbey and on the beach south of Red's Place. If you wish to start collecting a few, head to the section at the end on monster locations to find out which ones you can get but I will act as though you do not have any until later on. _ |_| Sledgehammer (Top of hill just Southeast of the Ship) |_| Seed of Magic (Southwest corner of region at the end of the peninsula) |_| Fresh Milk (There is a cow right in front of the tunnel) |_| 2 Fresh Milk (There are 2 cows by the Chapel) |_| 630 Gold Coins (West of Trodain North of the road, West side of gully) |_| Cannibox (West of Trodain North of the road, East side of gully) --- TRODAIN CASTLE --- Finally back home, and while you may wish the bridge hadn't been busted, you'll see that at level 1 you don't want to be here. The enemies aren't deadly just yet though the Dragonthorns breath attack will be very annoying. If you're lucky you may even kill a Liquid Metal Slime ^_^. I recommend however heading up the stairs first and when you enter the doors to turn left and clear out that area first. That way you'll have the map and Magic Key before heading deeper into the castle. There's no boss here again so at level 21 I had no difficulty. _ |_| Imp Knife recipe (By Fountain, may not be there yet) |_| Map of Castle Trodain |_| Mini Medal |_| 29 Gold Coins |_| Garter |_| 46 Gold Coins |_| Mini Medal |_| Magic Beast Hide |_| Mini Medal |_| Gold Bracer |_| Magic Key |_| Templar's Sword |_| Rock Salt |_| Waterweed Mould |_| 150 Gold Coins |_| Mini Medal --- TREASURE HUNT (Magic Key) --- With the Magic Key we can now go From Maella to Trodain again except we can now open a bunch more treasures. _ |_| Mini Medal (West of Maella Abbey North of the river) |_| Steel Broadsword (Northwest of Riverside Chapel south of the valley) |_| Mini Medal (North of Riverside Chapel near the bend) |_| Agility Ring (Northeast of Riverside Chapel at bend by the cliff) |_| Mini Medal (Behind Monster Arena) |_| Seed of Defence (North of Monster Arena in a crevasse) |_| Gold Ring (West of Swordsman's Labyrinth at North end of mountains) |_| Seed of Skill (Southwest of Red's house at South end of mountains) |_| Seed of Defence (West of Hilltop Hut in the Southeast corner of valley) |_| Lesser Panacea (East of Trodain Castle by broken bridge) --- LAND OF THE MOLES --- With some new yet nearly useless treasures in hand we can now go to Ascantha and get our reward for pointing out that the king was a whiny baby for 2 years. But oh Noes, it has been stolened!!! Nothing but an inconvenience however, it's just a short jaunt through a cave and a very small area to get through to the next dungeon. With all the Mischevious Moles, there is very little danger. _ |_| Fresh Milk (Cow in the middle of the area) |_| Seed of Life (Right in the middle of the area, in a field) |_| Mini Medal (Right above the entrance to the Mole Hole) --- MOLE HOLE --- Since the enemies are essentialy the same as they are outside of the cave and there are only 4 treasures to get (with 2 right beside each other) and all of them being on the way, you'll get through relatively unscathed leaving you near full magic with the boss. I was level 22 and Jessica finally had Oomph. The First round Don Mole always plays music which rarely works on you but almost always works on the Soul Moles. I personally kill them off but when confused they often attack each other, run away or are paralysed. After this Don Moles regular attacks deal about 40 damage or he shakes the ground which does 40 damage to all or he summons another mole. He may also sing again after awhile but that's not a big threat. Just Oomph, use a few Kabuffs and tensions mixed with attacks and he will not ba a problem at all unles like myself you are insane and insist on having a certain number of Soul Mole kills in your beastiary (I like to have an even number). _ |_| Map of Mole Hole |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Defence |_| Stone Hardhat |_| Moonshadow Harp (From Boss) --- Princess Minnie's Castle --- Return to Trodain at night and give the Magic Harp to the Bard (who I think is holding out on you in terms of magic equipment) and get yourself the ship which just happens to start pointed right at Minnie's Island which is populated by some scary monsters. The Scorpions are best dealt with with magic and Tap Devils can do a death dance which has killed me outright before on a few occasions (being left with one person tends to get me killed as well). Since you will find these guys on Neos island as well as other islands you'll want to start saving VERY often. Here there's not much to do other than create a warp point and move onto Neos which is to the Southwest in between the continents. _ |_| Mini Medal (Behind Princess Minnie's Castle) |_| Mini Medal (Princess Minnie's Castle) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow behind castle by treasure chest) |_| Fishnet Stockings (Princess Minnie) Buy (175 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 1 Red Mould |_| 4 Waterweed Mould Recipes _ |_| Plain Cheese + Red Mould |_| Plain Cheese + Waterweed Mould Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Cool Cheese + Waterweed Mould --- NEOS ISLAND --- Not only do you have to fear Tap Dancers here but the Red-Tailed demon man-whores who have an attack which can deal 50 damage to all, very deadly when used repeatedly at such a low health as I was. You can however finally make some nice money if you are lucky as there are Gold Golems on Neos island if you are willing to risk other fights with your crappy equipment (assuming you listened to me of course and saved your money) but if you make it to town you'll be treated with your new warp base of operations and a nice couple of shops to buy stuff. However I had not enough money even as cheap as I had been throughout the game even with a few Gold Golem encounters. Since there will be a few more towns soon after Neos you can pretty much prepare to be poor forever. Just around getting the Ship I had completed all of the Medicinal Herb recipes so I assume others who aren't making a beeline for the next area will also be complete and so you also have to choose between what you need to survive and what you need for recipes. This promises to be a long portion of the game unless you level and build up some money or had done so earlier. _ |_| Magic Water |_| Agility Ring --- NEOS (All Items lost if not found prior to Black Citadel) --- Just shopping and an optional scene at the entrance to the cathedral. There's no save point here despite being a religious town so prepare to use alot of warping, I also recommend using the Hilltop Hut instead of paying 200 Gold Pieces to sleep on the floor here. _ |_| Seed of Magic |_| Holy Water |_| Chimaera Wing |_| 16 Gold Coins |_| Scholar's Specs |_| Moonwort Bulb |_| Spicy Cheese |_| Seed of Skill |_| 80 Gold Coins |_| Gold Rosary Buy (22350 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 2 Steel Scythes |_| 1 Chain Whip |_| 1 Dream Blade |_| 1 Full Plate Armour |_| 1 Light Shield |_| 1 Steel Shield |_| 2 Gold Rosarys Recipes _ |_| Short Bow + Chain Whip |_| Long Spear + Gold Rosary |_| Spicy Cheese + Red Mould + Red Mould --- TREASURE HUNT (Ship) --- The places you'll want to visit by ship assuming you are waiting before recruiting monsters are the Pirate's Cove which is most easily reached by warping to Alexandria and heading via boat into the river. There is also an area West of Pickham which was blocked off by mountains and an island just West of that. West of Neos there is a large isolated beach and finally in the Southwest corner of the world there is an unnamed island that isn't on the World Map. The actual trip to these places isn't too dangerous if you realize that Tentaculars are EXTREMELY weak against instant death attacks and status effects spells such as sleep, Whack is the best way to kill them as it works about 80% of the time. The Pirate's Cove and the cape West of Pickham however have some deadly enemies on them if you aren't prepared so take care in your item hunting before moving onto the populated and larger continents. The hidden island is home to Canniboxes and Mimics and I myself got 4 Iron Nails just from getting the 2 chests on the island so if you do as well, this opens up some recipes I have listed after the walkthrough. _ |_| Mini Medal (Pirate's Cove) |_| Seed of Magic (Pirate's Cove) |_| 790 Gold Coins (Pirate's Cove) |_| Iron Armour (Island West of Maella Abbey) |_| Bronze Knife (Island West of Maella Abbey) |_| Fresh Milk (Middle of island South of Neos) |_| 950 Gold Coins (South end of island South of Neos) |_| Seed of Life (Hill in the middle of the cape West of Pickham) |_| Iron Mask (East side of the cape West of Pickham) |_| Yggdrasil Leaf (East end of beach Southeast of Argonia) |_| Seed of Strength (West end of beach Southeast of Argonia) |_| Platinum Sword (Island not on map, far Southwest corner of the World) |_| Posh Waistcoat (Princess Minnie) Recipes _ |_| Bronze Knife + Bronze Knife |_| Leather Shield + Bronze Knife --- SEAVIEW CHAPEL TO BACCARAT --- On your way from Neos to the Seaview Chapel it might be a good idea to stop off at the 2 points of land right before on each of these points are treasure chests from the Baccarat region and this is in fact the easiest way to get them. I also recommend getting off at the Northeasterly most point of the island in order to pick up the 1200 Gold Pieces there before running around. The enemies here aren't dangerous at all, you'd almost think that you were supposed to go here as opposed to running around a bunch of random islands or something... Either way, follow the road to Baccarat. _ |_| Tough Guy Tattoo (Behind Seaview Chapel) |_| Mini Medal (Seaview Chapel) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow in front of the Seaview Chapel) |_| 1,200 Gold Coins (Northeast point of the region) --- BACCARAT (Mansion Locked) --- By the time I made it to Baccarat, I ran out of recipes to make and while I simply stopped, you could make more strong medicines for money but I want to keep the rarity up for no good reason as I can be a bit of a crazed perfectionist, also I want to come up with strategies that work for this guide if followed word for word. I still of course lack money but that problem will only get far worse before it gets better. Head into the Inn to witness the scene between the bartender and the innkeep before talking to the bartender downstairs to learn about what's up here before heading on to get one of the most useful items in the game. _ |_| Seed of Defence |_| Strong Medicine |_| Mini Medal |_| Cool Cheese |_| 72 Gold Coins |_| Seed of Strength |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal |_| Ruby of Protection |_| Dancer's Costume |_| Amor Seco Essence |_| Mini Medal |_| Bunny Tail |_| Garter Buy (8550 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 4 Poison Needles |_| 1 Coral Hairpin --- BACCARAT REGION INCLUDING CHATEAU FELIX --- Soon, another one of the games greatest items will be in your possession (The World Map being the first). Just South of Baccarat you'll find a small area with one guy guarding a house. Answer Tom's questions (the answers are painfully obvious) and accept the mission from his master. Now all you really need to do is to follow the road South of his Chateau all the way around until it disappears and keep going. You'll see a bowl valley with a rock formation in it and this is where the Tree will appear. I got here when night started so I had a nice long wait but once you use the Sand and return to Felix, you get Baumren's Bell which in all but the Isolated Plateau will allow you to move around the world map about 3x as fast which is awesome. My first time through I didn't want to run around all day and knew about the Bell but happened to search every single inch of the world before heading to Baccarat and then Chateau Felix. I mean every island was explored fully... _ |_| Sand of Serenity (Chateau Felix) |_| Mini Medal (End of inlet South of Chateau Felix here mountain meets cliff) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow just along the road South of Chateau Felix) |_| Seed of Agility (North side of elevated plateau East of Chateau Felix) |_| Seed of Defence (North end of Eastern mountain range) |_| 800 Gold Coins (North end of middle island that has the Tree of Styx) |_| Yggdrasil Leaf (By base of Spirit Tree at dawn if you have none) |_| Baumren's Bell (Chateau Felix after using the sand of Serenity) --- NORTHWEST ISLE --- With Baumren's Bell, life becomes so easy. There are 4 paths on the island with the one leading to the DarkRuins being the second from the right. Head on in and get lost and when you get out talk to the henchmen to find out that you need to head to Argonia to get in, therefore off to Savella we go. _ |_| Zombie Mail |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal --- SAVELLA CATHEDRAL ISLAND --- On this island there are 2 bird which when talked to give you seeds but otherwise there's nothing out of the ordinary, nor any truly dangerous monsters _ |_| Seed of Life (Talk to a bird at the end of the Northern path) |_| Magic Water (Northwest corner of the island) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow at Northwest corner of the island) |_| Seed of Magic (Talk to a bird midway along the Southern path) |_| Seed of Defence (Head North around Savella Cathedral, behind it) --- SAVELLA CATHEDRAL --- Unless you want to see an optional cutscene involving Angelo all there really is to do here is to pick up the 2 treasures and to wish you had more Gold kicking around. You are also adding the town to your warp list of course. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Wisdom |_| Dragon Slayer recipe (Behind lift, may not be there yet) |_| Staff of Divine Wrath (Princess Minnie) Buy (26000 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 2 Partisans |_| 4 Silver Mail Recipes _ |_| Dancer's Costume + Silver Mail --- KINGDOM OF ARGONIA --- Argonia presents the last truly massive landmass to search and is the biggest one indeed. Some of the enemies here were able to dish out 60 damage in a single hit which led to Jessica dying almost a dozen times as I went around collecting all the treasures despite my being level 26 (though she and Angelo were only level 24) by then end. I recommend starting the search at the mouth of the river accessed by boat West of Neos, heading to the Royal Hunting Grounds, over to Argonia, across to the Mystical Spring, back down around the lake to pick up the last few treasures and into the Desert to get the few in there before finally searching Argonia itself. Even with Baumren's Bell it will likely take over an hour to complete but this will help you gain a few needed levels before having to face Dhoulmagus. Unfortunately however the battles here tend to give you as much Gold as the battles around Alexandria so you will not become rich by any respects. _ |_| Iron Helmet (Mouth of river Southeast of Argonia) |_| Light Shield (Directly West of Royal Hunting Grounds past bend in road) |_| 41 Gold Coins (Hut outside of the Royal Hunting Grounds) |_| Mini Medal (Hut outside of the Royal Hunting Grounds) |_| Seed of Wisdom (East side of waterfall Northwest of Argonia) |_| Mini Medal (Along West side of Argonia) |_| Eagle Dagger (Southwest of Argonia, East of plateau East of lake) |_| Prayer Ring (Northeast of Peddler's tent, on plateau by lake) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow right beside the hut near Mystic Spring) |_| Seed of Skill (Hut near Mystic Spring) |_| Mini Medal (Hut near Mystic Spring) |_| 1,500 Gold Coins (Directly South of the hut near Mystic Spring) |_| Seed of Agility (Northwest of Lake Argonia along plateau) |_| Steel Shield (Along the South edge of Lake Argonia) |_| 2 Fresh Milk (Cows along the South edge of Lake Argonia) |_| Prayer Ring (Far West of Lake Argonia) |_| Lightning Staff (Southwest tip of continent West of desert) Buy (Campsite Merchant, 2300 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 1 Turtle Shell Recipes _ |_| Eagle Dagger + Poison Needle |_| Light Shield + Fresh Milk + Fresh Milk --- DESERT --- Only 2 chests to collect here for now, the enemies are weaker than in Argonia but use Crackle alot as it's very useful here. The best way to hunt them down is to head into the well just East of the Chapel warping to the center, then head to the South wall and head West to the other well with one chest and warp to the other well with the second chest. Now it's off to Argonia. _ |_| Dragon Scale (By the well in the middle of South edge of desert) |_| Dragon Dung (By the well in the Northeast corner of the desert) --- ARGONIA --- Such a big region is deserving of a senselessly big castle is it not? This is in fact the only place where I will seperate the items in terms of if they are found in the town or in the castle since searching both for a missed item is enough to drive one mad. Or at least myself after running through the castle as many times as I have. Anyways, assuming that you've talked to the mercenaries hired to avenge Golding, it turns out that they managed to find Charmles and you can now enter the castle. all that is necessary to do here is to talk to the king, find Charmles and then head out of town to the Royal Hunting Grounds. There's only one new item to buy this time, but just wait until you come back, there will be enough to make you cry... In the Town section _ |_| Magic Water |_| Plain Cheese |_| 38 Gold Coins |_| Strong Medicine |_| Mini Medal |_| Wayfarer's Clothes |_| Feathered Cap |_| 80 Gold Coins |_| Iron Axe |_| Rennet Powder |_| Mini Medal |_| Cool Cheese |_| Turban |_| Strong Antidote |_| Hairband |_| Leather Cape In the Castle section _ |_| Rock Salt |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal |_| 30 Gold Coins |_| Elfin Elixir |_| Cloak of Evasion |_| Rennet Powder |_| 50 Gold Coins |_| Seed of Strength |_| Mini Medal |_| Lizard Humour (Get from Charmles on way to Hunting Grounds) |_| Gold Nugget (Princess Minnie) Buy (4300 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 1 Battle Axe Recipes _ |_| Battle Axe + Thief's Key |_| Magic Water + Plain Cheese --- ROYAL HUNTING GROUNDS --- Only 2 treasures you say? Well that makes life easy, especially since both are immediately to your right down the only 2 paths that way. What else could make this easier? How about a full heal before the boss, well consider it done. It's a short enough area that you can also be somewhat liberal with your spells and abilities. I was level 27 here and when taking down the Argon Lizards, a simple strategy of building tension as Jessica uses Sap twice before unloading a can of kick-ass worked very well, even for the big one. Otherwise you can take this time to develop a good and proper loathing for the prince and wish this was a game like Fable or D&D where you could kill him good yourself. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Dragon Scale --- TREASURE HUNT (After Hunting Grounds) --- Not really a treasure hunt per se, moreso a quick break for preparing to fight Dhoulmagus which is not easy at all without any monster team as I lack. I highly recommend having one that you can summon which contains Dumbking and Talos if you are having real troubles, they can help weaken both forms or you could alway head to Neos and build up some gold to get items you are too poor to buy from the Bazaar. Otherwise you need only rob the treasury, talk to the old man by the Mystic Springs, fight a Sea Dragon and head out to the Dark Ruins. Don't forget to make a trip out to the Woodsman for some cheese and if you haven't already, the Eros' Bow Recipe should have appeared in Pickham by now. _ |_| Magic Mirror (Argonia vault) |_| Mini Medal (Argonia vault) |_| Devil's Tail (Argonia vault) |_| Battle Fork (Argonia vault) |_| Magical Hat (Argonia vault) |_| Sun Mirror (Recharge Magic Mirror at channel beneath Arcadia) |_| Cured Cheese [x2] (Waterfall Hut, talk to Woodsman) |_| Angel Cheese [x2] (Waterfall Hut, talk to Woodsman) |_| Mild Cheese [x4] (Waterfall Hut, talk to Woodsman) Buy (From Bazaar SWEET ZOMBIE JESUS ON A POGO STICK, 69350 Gold Pieces Total, and that's not including 1000 per Yggdrasil Leaf) _ |_| 2 Zombiesbanes |_| 1 War Hammer |_| 1 Heavy Armour |_| 1 Silk Bustier |_| 2 Magical Hats |_| 1 Yggdrasil Leaf whenever needed |_| 2 Gold Bracers |_| 5 Gold Rings |_| 3 Tough Guy Tattoos |_| 2 Rubys of Protection |_| 2 Magic Shields Recipes _ |_| Zombiesbane + Silver Mail |_| Silk Bustier + Bunny Tail |_| Heavy Armour + Bandit Axe + Bandit's Grass Skirt |_| Red Mould + Waterweed Mould + Yggdrasil Leaf |_| 2x Holy Water + Gold Rosary + Tough Guy Tattoo |_| Magic Water + Yggdrasil Leaf Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Holy Talisman + Templar's Sword |_| Holy Talisman + Zombiesbane --- DARK RUINS --- The battles in here I must say are shockingly easy, and once more you need not worry about conserving magic for one of two reasons. Once you get through the Ruins and get all the treasures as well as open up the path to Dhoulmagus, I recommend heading out of the Ruins and saving in case of death. Of course if you don't mind being defeated then there is no real problem, in fact apparently if you die on his second form and return, he begins in the second form. I however insist on having 0 wipe outs so it must all be done in one go for me. Right before the boss there is a crack in the wall and a pool of spring water which just happens to heal you fully so make sure to take advantage of this. I was able to defeat both forms one after the other with my hero at level 28, Yangus at level 27 and Angelo and Jessica at level 26. I did however use several Magic Waters/Prayer Rings and bought 2 Silver Mails and 2 Magic Shields beforehand. They were on the list, but I had to fight a bit to get the gold. This was all completed in 24:41 game time including getting every single item up to this point. Form 1: First thing Dhoulmagus does is to split into 3 like a jerk which gives him the ability to attack up to 4x a round. Your first goal is to take them out since once gone they cannot return. The way that I did this was to start off by having everyone but Angelo psyche up to 50 while Angelo was the dedicated healer as he is the entire fight. If he's not healing, he's probably filling up his magic or reviving. Anywho, I Had my Hero use Super Throw, Jessica used Booma nd Yangus was put to sleep before he could attack. This did about 500 damage to all and so after but a few more attacks by a slightly charged Yangus and Hero they were both gone. From there on out whenever Dhoulmagus used Ice Wave, I would psyche up and attack with Hero and Angelo healing and Jessica using Acceleratle (3 points into Stave) and Oomph or Frizzle. I made it out with most of my magic points intact and almost full health. Form 2: You mean we don't get time to heal? That's nice... At least he's only one this time, however he's got some very nasty attacks and enjoys his hit everyone spells and breath. My first try I died when he had 1500 damage dealt against him because I ran completely out of magic but this time I had a better plan and Magic Waters to save me. My strategy was almost the same as with the lone Dhoulmagus before where Hero and Angelo would both keep everyone at full or near full health with whatever spell was most efficient, Yangus would psyche up to 50 after the Ice Wave and Jess would Acceleratle, Oomph and then cast Sap as this form would actually lose defense unlike the first form. The one thing which caused me some trouble was when he didn't use Wave of Ice for about 10 rounds and I refused to put up any barriers, psyche up or cast Oomph for fear he was going to use it the next round. On top of that, Sap didn't work during that whole time so it was a battle of attrition that he was winning until he finally got rid of my extra Agility and I could heal up and go back to phase 1 which did him in pretty quickly after that. Of course everyone gains a level afterwards, Hero gets Zing finally and Yangus gets 15 more attack with scythes... That would have been nice beforehand but we all lived regardless and I have maintained my 0 loss, flee and intimidate record as well as have never finished a battle without both Hero and Yangus being alive so they still have the same exp tally. _ |_| Map of Dark Ruins |_| Dragon Scale |_| Mini Medal |_| Mimic |_| Saint's Ashes --- ARCADIA --- Remember that checkpoint in the North part of Argonia? No? Then you've probably been paying attention to me and I didn't tell you to go there but that's where we're heading now. Gasp, someone has destroyed it!!! Conveniently that's where enemies get slightly stronger than the last area and equipment in stores upgrades one level. Who would have guessed? Anywho, you have no choice at first but to head to the mansion only to learn that Jess has been possessed and it trying to kill people a la Dhoulmagus. It was very kind of her to open the doorway to let you in as opposed to flying across or teleporting but that's the foresight of RPG villains for you. After the scene talk to Master High and Mighty to get your quest and begin your item search. The only person you have to talk to is the guy sitting at the table in the building left of the first intersection in town to your right, beside the pub. Once again you likely have no money yet, but soon... _ |_| Rennet Powder |_| Fresh Milk |_| Dragon Dung |_| Gold Bracer |_| Amor Seco Essence |_| 350 Gold Coins |_| Magic Water |_| Leather Dress |_| 230 Gold Coins |_| Seed of Life |_| Mini Medal |_| Dragon Scale |_| Giant Mallet |_| 27 Gold Coins |_| Strength Ring |_| Rock Salt |_| Mini Medal |_| Cowpat |_| Bunny Tail |_| Rennet Powder |_| Poison Moth Knife |_| Magic Water |_| Lesser Panacea |_| Mini Medal |_| Wizard's Staff |_| Mystifying Mixture |_| 26 Gold Coins |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Strength |_| Rock Salt |_| Mini Medal |_| Cloak of Evasion |_| Mini Medal |_| Stone Sword (Given by Rydon's son) |_| Seed of Skill (Mystery Shop at night, costs 2000 Gold Pieces) |_| Meteorite Bracer (Princess Minnie) Buy (34900 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 1 Sword Breaker |_| 1 Swallowtail |_| 1 Bastard Sword |_| 1 Magic Bikini Recipes _ |_| Cloak of Evasion + Boxer Shorts |_| Rock Salt + Amor Seco Essence |_| Rock Salt + Plain Cheese |_| Rock Salt + Fresh Milk + Rennet Powder |_| Giant Mallet + Iron Helmet + Iron Helmet --- ARCADIA REGION --- Another small region with non-threatening monsters, but you won't hear me complain, especially since we lack Jessica anyways. All there is to do here anyways is to get the treasures before moving onto Rydon's Tower. _ |_| Titan Belt (Just North of Arcadia on a bluff) |_| Silver Tiara (Along a mountain when the road heads into a valley) |_| Elfin Elixir (East of the road when the road heads into a valley) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow right next to the Chapel) |_| Assassin's Dagger (North of the road West of the Chapel in bowl) --- RYDON'S TOWER --- It seems that the encounter rate is low here but considering that the enemies are all physical heavy hitters with lots of health, I don't mind so much. The treasures are in the front door, at the top and right before the end so you can focus on getting to the top without worry. All you need to do is beat your enemies down and keep well healed and you'll have no trouble. Once done it turns out that you wasted your time since the Spinels are actually in the Tower of Alexandria, at the top of course but it takes very little time anyways. _ |_| Map of Rydon's Tower |_| Recovery Ring |_| Cheiron's Bow |_| Kran Spinels (Tower of Alexandria after Rydon's Tower, top floor) --- ARCADIA (Secret chamber) --- Back to Arcadia and so we give the Great Magician his prize and he sends us to get a book for him since he's a lazy bastard, but it lets us rob him some more. When you return Jessica conveniently attacks and you get healed before fighting her. Jess has very few abilities and she is no trouble at all. She can't remove your defenses so keep your defense up with Kabuff and use tension as you feel. Her only damaging attacks will be her magic and her summoning since the shadows can use a weak breath attack. The only way you should ever lose here is if she pulls off a good Kasnooze and you refuse to wake up, I know it worked on all my guys including 2 100 tension people then kabuff ran out, Hero died and refused to revive 3 rounds in a row... If you use boomerangs, a psyched up Super Throw will take them all out every time. Otherwise use whatever attacks you've been working on. Once done head West from Rydon's Tower and head into the tunnel towards Orkutsk. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Magic Vestment |_| 650 Gold Coins |_| Big Book of Barriers --- MARTA'S COTTAGE (Items which aren't given are lost if not found before you finish the Herb Grotto) --- Oh Noes! An avalanche!!! Game Over... Or not, anyways, when you wake up what better way to show your appreciation than by robbing her blind? When done with her cellar, head up and talk to everyone (even the dog) to open up the next cutscene. Next day it's time to head out again, nice and easy. _ |_| Special Medicine |_| Special Antidote |_| Mini Medal |_| Marta's Bag (Given by Marta) |_| Mini Medal (Head back in and search the barn) --- BLIZZARD PEAKS --- 3 of the treasures are found in the ravine West of Marta's Cottage as well as Roborg who will be the first of 5 monsters I tell you to recruit. The other treasure is right above the Herb Grotto entrance so once acquired head into town. _ |_| Holy Silver Rapier (West of Marta's Cottage at the base of a tree) |_| Yggdrasil Leaf (West of Marta's Cottage in a crevasee on the South side) |_| Agility Ring (Far West of Marta's Cottage at the base of a tree) |_| Mini Medal (Right outside and above Herb Grotto entrance) --- ORKUTSK --- Only thing to do here since Marek isn't here is to rob all the townsfolk, then head out to the Monster Arena. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Amor Seco Essence |_| Mini Medal |_| Chilly Cheese |_| Seed of Defence |_| Ruby of Protection |_| Chimaera Wing |_| Mini Medal |_| Edged Boomerang |_| Magic Water |_| Wing of Bat |_| Rockbomb Shard |_| Mini Medal |_| Miracle Sword (Princess Minnie) Buy (25900 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 1 Dragonsbane |_| 1 Velvet Cape |_| 1 Iron Headgear Recipes _ |_| Wizard's Staff + Rockbomb Shard |_| 2x Chilly Cheese + Waterweed Mould + Waterweed Mould --- MORRIE'S PLACE (Once Monsters Caught): MONSTER ARENA --- Roborg by himself can wipe the floor with all 4 of the first ranks which unlocks the next 2 monsters to get. Back at Orkutsk head West and you'll see Cybot on a hill waiting for you and then South of Neos you'll see Talos. For all 3 of these monsters it's a simple Sap and attack strategy with Angelo as a healer. With these 3 monsters on your team you can now handle the most difficult ranking which suprisingly is not the final one, but Rank B. Once you take them out, which shouldn't be too difficult with these 3 monsters and minimal luck, you can head out to create one of the best monster teams out there. Remember that massive beach South of Argonia? Head back there and on the Eastern side you'll find Octurion and finally head to the Dark Ruins once more. Here on the West side of the island you'll find Skeledoid who can attack twice and put enemies to sleep with his attacks. These two along with Talos can take out the rest of the ranks easily thus rendering you the Champione of Morrie's Monstrous Pit!!!! Enough of that, off to Baccarat. _ |_| Strength Ring |_| Bunny Suit |_| Ring of Clarity |_| Mighty Armlet |_| Saint's Ashes |_| Bardiche of Binding |_| Hero Spear |_| Dragon Robe --- BACCARAT (Mansion Unlocked) --- The mansion is finally unlocked here now that Dhoulmagus is dead but the casino is not open quite yet. To get it open you must first talk to the whiny brats and pick any one (makes no difference) to guard on the way through the trial. In the morning head on out to the Desert Chapel and if you take the warp point in the well just to the East you'll end up in front of the entrance to the Dragon Graveyard. _ |_| Magic Water |_| Rennet Powder |_| Fresh Milk |_| Spangled Dress |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Wisdom |_| Gold Ring |_| 600 Tokens (Reward after beating the Dragon Graveyard) Recipes _ |_| Gold Ring + Seed of Magic |_| 2x Gold Ring + Poison Needle |_| Gold Ring + Poison Moth Knife |_| Gold Ring + Dream Blade --- DRAGON GRAVEYARD --- This ought to be the last dungeon you'll ever have to face where the monsters kick your ass since you have crap for equipment. There are 2 dragon types that have deadly fire breath attacks but that isn't your biggest threat. The Smackers in this area like to cast Kasnooze sometimes and lick your face, combine this weak enemy with a dragon or 2 and worse yet, a few Beelzebuzz who can cast Kerplunk and revive averything with full health and you could be in trouble. If you get in too much trouble however you now have a killer monster team to help you out. When you reach the end you are faced with a boss who become regular monsters later on. The best part is however that they use almost exclusively physical attacks and cannot do a wave of ice attack, so Kabuff and heal with Angelo, psyche up to the max with Hero and Yangus and have Jess use Acceleratle, Oomph and Sap and see how much damage you can pull off in one attack. If Red Fang psyches up too much for your liking, just summon your monsters to absorb the damage and laugh in his face. Once done watch the touching scene and return to Baccarat for some gambling. _ |_| Map of Dragon Graveyard |_| Mini Medal |_| Dragon Dung |_| Dragon Shield --- CASINOS IN BACCARAT AND PICKHAM --- Now the Baccarat casino is finally open. First things first, spend every penny you have on Tokens. DO IT!!! When you get enough Tokens you can just buy Prayer Rings by the dozen and sell them for mad stacks of coinage. But first we need a fair bit of money. What you want to eventually do is cover the entire first third of the roulette table from 0-9 with as many chips as you can. This will cost you 22000 Tokens so first we need to make some Tokens since you likely have 1000 or less. First I recommend just 100 tokens on 0-7 or something like that, a win will get you 2800 and from there you can start by filling up 5 which will get you 14000 or by centering more on one specific number. I specified and got lucky making 44400 Tokens on a 2800 Token bet. As you can already guess, there will be alot of resetting as you go for the gold and you'll make anywhere from about 50000-68500 on a bet depending on the number it lands on (2 gets the most) so it is up to you if you reset after every loss or try your luck several times in a row and hope to end up ahead before saving. It will take alot of patience but it takes only about 2 hours depending on your luck and it beats trying to amass 10040000 Gold in order to buy them that way. You can also buy extra Prayer rings at the end and sell them for cash, you can easily make a fortune in minimal time this way and afford all those items from the Bazaar and any other store you might want so you will never be poor again. Once you're happy with your gains head off to Trodain if you haven't gotten the Imp Knife Recipe yet and then off to the Herb Grotto. Buy (502000 Tokens Total, not as bad as it sounds) _ |_| 4 Silver Platters |_| 6 Agility Rings |_| 3 Rune Staffs |_| 1 Platinum Headgear |_| 9 Prayer Rings |_| 2 Spangled Dresses |_| 17 Saint's Ashes |_| 3 Falcon Blades |_| 3 Liquid Metal Armours |_| 1 Gringham Whip Recipes _ |_| Rune Staff + Wizard's Staff |_| Iron Shield + Silver Platter |_| Coral Hairpin + Silver Platter |_| 3x Seed of Strength + Prayer Ring |_| 5x Seed of Life + Prayer Ring |_| Seed of Defense + Prayer Ring |_| Seed of Agility + Prayer Ring |_| Saint's Ashes + Zombie Mail |_| 2x Saint's Ashes + Partisan |_| Strength Ring + Leather Kilt |_| Strength Ring + Magic Shield + Cured Cheese |_| Cypress Stick + Cypress Stick + Strength Ring |_| Seed of Wisdom + Ring of Clarity + Ring of Awakening |_| Full Plate Armour + Ruby of Protection + Prayer Ring |_| 3x Spangled Dress + Ruby of Protection + Gold Bracer |_| Steel Shield + Ruby of Protection + Prayer Ring |_| Iron Cuirass + Silver Platter + Silver Platter Recipes after Recipes _ |_| 3x Agility Ring + Bandana |_| 2x Recovery Ring + Gold Bracer |_| Gold Ring + Sandstorm Spear |_| Magic Armour + Edged Boomerang |_| 2x Strength Ring + Titan Belt |_| 2x Magical Hat + Scholar's Specs |_| 2x Hunter's Bow + Garter |_| Rune Staff + Light Shield + Shimmering Dress |_| Slime Earring + Tough Guy Tattoo + Agility Ring Recipes after Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Feathered Cap + Mercury's Bandana |_| Miracle Sword + Life Bracer |_| Eros' Bow + Power Shield |_| Scholar's Cap + Magic Vestment |_| Rune Staff + Life Bracer + Yggdrasil Leaf |_| Full Moon RIng + Ring of Immunity + Ring of Truth --- HERB GROTTO --- You'll be amazed just how easy life is when you are rich, at least that is if you aren't used to it... Enough of my minimum wage bitterness, all you need to do in this dungeon is to get to the bottom and save Marek and the only 2 things you should watch for are drips of water which when passed under cause massive icicles to fall behind you and pots in the campsites containing items, once you're done the closest thing they have to a boss is 8 puny wolves and it's off to drop Marek off at home and then to visit his momma. _ |_| Map of Herb Grotto |_| Rose Wort |_| Mini Medal |_| 100 Gold Coins |_| Elfin Elixir |_| Devil's Tail |_| 2,100 Gold Coins |_| Rose-Root |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Life |_| Mini Medal |_| Icicle Dirk |_| Sacred Armour (Princess Minnie) --- MARTA'S COTTAGE --- You need only go into the cave to find Marta, anywhere else and you get more wolves and after the scene with Marta you get to fight 8 more anyways. But you also get the Ultimate Key, and you know what that means... TREASURE HUNTING!!! _ |_| Ultimate Key (Given by Marta) --- TREASURE HUNT (Ultimate Key) --- This time the key opens doors so all the chests are in a single room so the only thing that you may need to look for is the Puff-Puff Club which is Nortwest of Argonia on the West side of the waterfall through a door on the mountainside. Then there's the Pirate's cove which is actually a dungeon. _ |_| Rune Staff (Pickham, set of houses in the back) |_| Power Shield (Pickham, set of houses in the back) |_| Mini Medal (Pickham, set of houses in the back) |_| Mimic (Pickham, set of houses in the back) |_| Seed of Agility (Red's house, in the basement) |_| Garter (Red's house, in the basement) |_| Mini Medal (Red's house, in the basement) |_| Spiked Steel Whip (Red's house, in the basement) |_| Seed of Magic (Trodain Castle, 2nd floor of building on the right) |_| Yggdrasil Dew (Trodain Castle, 2nd floor of building on the right) |_| Rusty Old Sword (Trodain Castle, 2nd floor of building on the right) |_| Mini Medal (Trodain Castle, 2nd floor of building on the right) |_| Skull Ring (Argonia, Treasury accessed from outside on 3rd floor) |_| Mini Medal (Argonia, Treasury accessed from outside on 3rd floor) |_| Moon Axe (Argonia, Treasury accessed from outside on 3rd floor) |_| Mini Medal (Le Puff-Puff Club, changing room) |_| Silver Platter (Le Puff-Puff Club, changing room) |_| Mini Medal (Arcadia, in the back of the item shop) |_| Titan Belt (Arcadia, in the back of the item shop) |_| Seed of Magic (Arcadia, in the back of the item shop) |_| Double-Edged Sword (Princess Minnie's Castle, front lobby) |_| Seed of Strength (Princess Minnie's Castle, front lobby) |_| Mini Medal (Princess Minnie's Castle, front lobby) |_| Seed of Life (Princess Minnie's Castle, front lobby) |_| Orichalcum (Princess Minnie) Recipes _ |_| Skull Ring + Saint's Ashes + Saint's Ashes |_| Double-Edged Sword + Saint's Ashes + Saint's Ashes --- PIRATE'S COVE --- Seriously now, you open up 3 pathways for Red and still she's an unappreciative wench. Another quick and easy dungeon crawl (don't believe her when she says there's nothing behind her) and a surprisingly easy boss. Crows favorite attack is to psyche up and he will often psyche up to at least 50 if not 100, sometimes even then he'll psyche up. You should probably do the same and if he get's up to 100, I call that a good time to call up some monster team to absorb the damage. He can use the wave of ice attack so be careful about that, otherwise he's very easy to take down. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Magic Water |_| Mini Medal |_| Map of Pirate's Cove |_| Rock Salt |_| Mini Medal |_| Hades' Helm |_| Bone Shield |_| Illuminated Sea Chart (Recieve after beating Boss) --- ISOLATED PLATEAU --- Use the chart, head to the X and follow the glowing path, sound easy? Well it is, and now you can get onto an entirely new island and unfortunately for you it's the only land which is without Great Sabercats so you get to hoof it around sucker. Though they have few Sabercats, they do however have alot of cows for some reason but the only necessary action is to head to the next town. _ |_| Fresh Milk (Cow on way up from the beach where you landed) |_| Magical Mace (Middle of poisonous swamp on the West end of the island) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow Southwest of the swamp) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow on the West side of the small lake) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow on the North side of the small lake) |_| Lesser Panacea (West side of the river coming out of the small lake) |_| Mighty Armlet (South side of pillar of land East of the small lake) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow South of Empycchu) |_| Fresh Milk (Cow Southeast of Empycchu on a hill) |_| Mini Medal (Southeast of Empycchu on a hill) |_| Elfin Elixir (Northeast corner of the island South of the plateau) Recipes _ |_| Dragonsbane + Mighty Armlet |_| War Hammer + Mighty Armlet |_| Bandit Mail + Mighty Armlet + Mighty Armlet --- EMPYCCHU --- Do you like robbing innocent little native tribes? I do, it's in my blood. Well not really, the French in me tried to co-exist and the German was busy plotting against the French. Anyways, money is no longer an issue but there's no longer much to buy anyways. Head to the Elder's, chat with him if you like but more importantly stay at the inn to make sure it's early before heading out to the stone pillars which look just like the ones in the middle of town, they are in the middle of the island. From here look for that shadow and chase it until it open up a portal far West of the town and head on in. _ |_| Chimaera Wing |_| Seed of Strength |_| Red Mould |_| Waterweed Mould |_| Mini Medal |_| Rennet Powder |_| Rock Salt |_| Special Medicine |_| Mini Medal |_| Fresh Milk |_| Fur Poncho |_| Seed of Skill |_| Mini Medal |_| Metal King Helm (Princess Minnie) Buy (31300 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 2 Magical Maces |_| 1 Mithril Helm Recipes _ |_| Feathered Cap + Fur Poncho |_| Magical Mace + Magical Hat + Bandit's Grass Skirt --- WORLD OF DARKNESS --- Haha, more fun running around except this time it's in monotone shades of grey.

You should know the drill by now, rob people and talk to the only important person in town who is *gasp* the chieftan. Then heal and save and get ready for battles which become more grueling again. Once more head to the stone formation but this time you get to fight the Godbird. Empyrea is scary, sap doesn't work on her, she gets 2 attacks and deals massive damage, easily killing anyone if she hits them twice. She can also use Wave of Ice so make sure she has reason to to prevent her from attacking you normally and hope she wastes the other turn using Midheal. Otherwise, it's a battle of attrition. Luckily she doesn't have too many hitpoints but you won't do much damage either, be sure to send out the teams however since they will be of great help. If you can make sure you have high spell resistance so as to weaken her Zap spell. Once defeated, head back to town and heal up once more before returning to save her baby. _ |_| Seed of Magic |_| Mini Medal |_| Rock Salt |_| Cowpat |_| Cold Cheese |_| Mini Medal |_| 180 Gold Coins |_| Special Antidote |_| Mini Medal |_| Premium Mould |_| Fresh Milk |_| Dragon Scale |_| Mini Medal --- GODBIRD'S EYRIE (DARK) --- If you're very unlucky (Like I was) every other attack will be a desperate attack from the Dark Dullahans or a party crushing attack from the Darkodiles and you'll be low on magic by the time you reach Gemon. Make sure you have some magic and then prepare to face a boss far easier than Empyrea. He too hits hard but cannot use a Wave of ice so sup up your defense a little and use Insulatle to soak up his flame breath. His minions (which can be resummoned) are no problem except that the Dark Turkey can use an intimidating scream and mess up your psyching up or he can cast Kasap. What you want to do here is use Acceleratle and follow the good old psyche up Hero and Yangus while Angelo heals and Jessica casts Oomph and Sap routine which we all know and love and Gemon will likewise be easy. Don't forget to send out the monster teams to inflict a bit of harm whenever you feel like it, it's not really necessary though. Once finished you get the best item in the game, being the Godbird's Soul which lets you fly around the world real quickly, at least I think it's awesome... _ |_| Map of the Godbird's Eyrie |_| Ring of Truth |_| Gold Nugget |_| Demon Whip |_| Saint's Ashes |_| Godbird's Soulstone (Given after beating Boss) Recipes _ |_| Demon Whip + Saint's Ashes --- GODBIRD'S EYRIE (LIGHT) --- This is the exact same dungeon except different treasures and no boss.

The store here is incredibly expensive but it's also the last costly items you'll ever need to buy.

Sir Leopold (they say evil but I don't quite remember him being good before) is another easy boss. His major attack is to simply attack you, possibly a desperate attack, otherwise he might use a powerful frost breath or an intimidating scream. He can't use wave of ice so just powerup with Kabuff and Oomph, tension to 50 and beat him down. _ |_| Seed of Life |_| Mini Medal |_| Sage's Robe |_| Mini Medal Recipes _ |_| Sage's Robe + Magic Water + Nook Grass --- Prison --- You know, I think this is the game where the hero goes the most unappreciated ever, and you haven't even gotten to the end yet... Anyways, you have to talk to everyone for any new scene to occur and after 2 changes in scene, talk to Rolo once the guards are chatting and he'll help you guys escape. From here you go onto Neos to finally beat down that annoying half-brother of poor Angelo who only ever wanted to be loved :(. Marcello is very similar to Sir Leopold except that instead of an intimidating scream he does get the wave of ice, plus he gets 2 new weak single person attacks (Wind Sickles and Kafrizzle) and can cast the dreaded Midheal. Use essentially the same tactic you used against Sir Leopold except I recommend only psyching up to 20 instead, and remember that you have monster teams to wear him down a fair bit. _ |_| Templar Captain's Ring (Given by Marcello in Neos) --- TREASURE HUNT (After Black Citadel Appears) --- Though you didn't get any new item, there's a few treasures and a sidequest to complete, so head to Savella to get the last recipe if you haven't already, grab a few items and then head to the Chancellors house in Argonia at night (the one on the hill). From there head upstairs and touch the glowing mirror to be taken away. _ |_| Flail of Fury (Talk to Red) |_| Highly-Strung Cheese [x3] (Waterfall Hut, talk to woodsman) |_| Nook Grass [x4] (Talk to Marek at Marta's Grave) |_| 400 Casino Tokens (Baccarat at night, Beat King Squid and refuse 200) |_| Seed of Magic (Argonia, indoor bazaar) |_| Mini Medal (Argonia, indoor bazaar) --- TROLLS' MAZE --- Hardly a maze, but the Troll part I get. I've yet to fin a single Great Troll in here but you can expect to find many many Trolls and Boss Trolls, in fact, I often fight nothing but those as I go through the Maze. I just send out my monster team every fight to make my life easy since there's no need to conserve magic. The chests are easy to find and the chefs have only alot more hit points than normal, but with their low agility they are no real threat so it should be a cakewalk to complete before saving and heading off to that floating castle in the sky. _ |_| Hell Sabre |_| Mini Medal |_| Seed of Strength [x2] (From Chancellor when you save him) |_| Seed of Life [x3] (From Chancellor when you save him) --- BLACK CITADEL (All but map found in Neos afterwards if missed) --- The final dungeon, well if we ignore the secret one it is, but like most final dungeons there are some pretty nice treasures, such as 3 Orichalcums and a Sage's Stone. Left of the entrance you can find the Map and then the rest is off to your right. The enemies here give you some pretty good exp but are also somewhat tough, but nothing that you shouldn't be able to handle considering that you can use magic however you feel like it to heal or harm. When you get to the point where both of the stairs are raised, or maybe one at a time if you're hurting, I recommend heading back to town and healing and saving before going onto the boss just in case. By this time you should also have all of the treasures in the Citadel, if not you missed one. The inside of the Citadel has some tougher monsters but you can still be liberal with your magic because once you get to the bottom where there is the town area that spirals you can search the image in front of you to be healed. From here you run around until your statues are all destroyed and instead of the healing symbol, there's stairs heading down to good old Rhapthorne. Rhapthorne looks like some sort of firefly to me, but if you aren't careful he will beat you mercilessly. He uses Kaboom, Kafrizzle, Icy Breath, Wave of Ice, put someone to sleep, which is my least favorite, and both regular and desperate attacks. His desperate attack can deal 300 damage to you and his multiperson attacks can deal up to and over 100 to each of you but unlike the desperate attacks you can defend yourself here. If my hit points are full or almost full, Angelo would use Kabuff but otherwise was a healer as per usual. If Yangus has Helm Splitter I recommend having him use it repeatedly to lower Rhapthornes defense and give the Sage's Stone to Jessice for if you're in trouble. Otherwise you want her to use Acceleratle, then Magic barrier and Insulatle or some sort of substitute to help protect you and also Oomph on Hero before he attacks. I tend to Use Multithrust since I power up the spear enough to get Thunder Thrust for Metal Slimes but any powerful single enemy attack works nicely. If you have no tension due to a Wave of Ice or having attacked and Rhapthornes defense is 0, that's a great time to send out your monster teams who can then do over 1500 damage each if you're lucky. Doing this Rhapthorne should be easy enough with the right equipment and spells to weaken his attacks. Once he's finished, you mysteriously get healed and get to escape. I was at level 38 for Hero and Yangus, level 37 for Angelo and level 36 for Jessica when I beat him. The first of 4 mini-bosses/bosses you fight is a Servant of Darkness and 2 Dancing Flames which is a really pathetic fight after having beat Rhapthorne. You can treat it like any normal enemy fight and this also applies for the next 2 battle against the Statues and the Megalodons. The final battle against the Ruins is more boss-like but since he can only attack once per round and he can only do a regular attack, Kabuff and Acceleratle will keep you safe while you can hit him with anything you feel like. _ |_| Map of Black Citadel |_| Orichalcum |_| 500 Gold Coins |_| Prayer Ring |_| Seed of Defence |_| 1,200 Gold Coins |_| Saint's Ashes |_| Yggdrasil Leaf |_| Hard Cheese |_| Orichalcum |_| Icicle Dirk |_| Cured Cheese |_| Seed of Life |_| Rock Salt |_| Dark Robe |_| Premium Mould |_| Silver Shield |_| Sage's Stone |_| Yggdrasil Dew (From Boss 4) |_| Orichalcum (From Boss 5) Recipes _ |_| Magic Shield + Icicle Dirk |_| Iron Headgear + Dark Robe |_| Bastard Sword + Icicle Dirk + Cold Cheese |_| Premium Mould + Dragon Dung + Super Spicy Cheese |_| Premium Mould + Dragon Dung + Cold Cheese |_| Premium Mould + Fresh Milk + Amor Seco Essence |_| Premium Mould + Fresh Milk + Yggdrasil Dew Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Scorching Cheese + C-C-Cold Cheese --- ORB HUNTING --- Unlike Dragon Warrior 3 where when you got the boat you had absolutaly no indication as to what to do and you might have even found 3 of the orbs before ever even hearing about the Echo Flute all of which you have no clue where they are without searching the world around (one of the reasons why I love it so), once you find the first orb you kinda realize that they are all exactly where Rhapthorne had someone killed, which means yet another journey to the top of the Tower of Alexandria for you. Once you get them all, make sure that you save and have one spot in everyones inventory open. You can however fill up the rest with all of those one use items you've been saving the whole game since you won't lose any anyways. Head back to Empyrea and she'll heal you and you can start the final battle. The first form of Rhapthorne with the shield is invincible as they tell you so you must all use the Godbird Staff in the same round 7 times. So use, make sure you have enough life, if not heal and put up barriers and then rinse and repeat. You should have little problem survivng since everyone can either heal or simply defend and once finished all 7 times, you are healed and can hurt Rhapthorne now. You have to replace any barriers you have lost but Rhapthornes attacks are basically exactly the same now which is very similar to when you fought him in the Black Citadel. In fact, you should use the exact same tactic you used the first time to take him down. I was the exact same level and did eveything the same and had as little trouble from this form as I did the first. The only real differences are that instead of a desperate attack he can hit you with 2 100 damage orbs and that he has a few more attacks that hit the whole party so you may need to focus a bit more on healing but he should still go down easily letting you beat the game and open up the secret dungeon. So don't forget to wait through everything and save after it all. Using my own strategies here for the entire game while going as fast as possible and even sticking to my terrible equipment instead of getting anything new as well as refusing to run away form a battle, be eliminated or even intimidate an enemy, I have completed the game with these stats for the completion file. Completion Time 42:40 Distance Travelled 180.4 Miles Battles 849 Monsters Deafeated 2815 Monsters Intimidated 0 Victories 845 (Stupid Metal monsters running away) Times Fled 0 Times Wiped Out 0 Total Gold Obtained 100255 Maximum Damage in a Turn 4087 points combined damage on Ruin Although I have been going quickly up until here, it will not save your stats at any other completion time and so I will power up a little bit, fill up my monster list and complete my recipes before moving onto the Dragovian Path, then even more powering before taking on the Dragovian Lord and his many forms. _ |_| Echo Flute (Empyrea's perch West of Empycchu) |_| Purple Orb (Farebury, Rylus' house) |_| Blue Orb (Tower of Alexandria, top floor) |_| Gold Orb (Maella Abbey, Abbot's residence, 2nd floor) |_| Yellow Orb (Baccarat, Golding's Mansion, 2nd floor) |_| Green Orb (Arcadia, outside Sir Leopold's cage) |_| Red Orb (Outside the cave behind Marta's cottage) |_| Silver Orb (Lord High Priest's Residence, 2nd floor) |_| Godbird Sceptre [x4] (Empyrea's perch West of Empycchu) --- DRAGOVIAN PATH --- After spending some time hunting down monsters I made it to level 42 which is a good idea before entering the Dragovian Path because the monsters are quite tough. Not only do most regular attacks deal over 100 damage, there are desperate attacks, psyching up, calling for help, brutal cold breath attacks, those annoying turn wasting intimidating screams and sweet breath attacks putting you to sleep and while none of those aren't easily survivable, some of the enemies even get multiple turns and the Silhouettes can do the Death Dance while the Pandora's Boxes use Thwack, in a singele round you could lose more than half your party which is essentially instant death if only Yangus is left or too many enemies can still go that round. On top of this, the caves are quite long, luckily though it's not a maze. To get to the treasures you want to go left at the first crossroads right after the large cavern, another left at the cavern with water and crisscrossing paths on different levels, a right at the next crossroads and the final 3 are visible from the main path and are right near one another. Once finished it's a quick dash to the final town. _ |_| Liquid Metal Armour |_| Seed of Skill |_| Thanatos' Shield |_| Pandora's Box |_| Elfin Elixir |_| Metal King Spear Recipes _ |_| Thanatos' Shield + Saint's Ashes --- DRAGOVIAN SANCTUARY --- I know what you're thinking, why isn't there just one more place to Zoom to to complete the list? Anyways, despite being the last town, there isn't any crazy new equipment to buy really, just good access to a few of the more rare items used in mixing, I mean, who doesn't want to put more curses onto their equipment only to have to remove them? Crazy people who don't want 100% completion and if you're reading this you aren't one of them, or you simply want a very point form and general walkthrough. After meeting Chen Mui all you need to do is to head down to the elders sitting room (I don't see enough houses for them I might add) to learn some background of the town. Of course they need your help since every is always needing your help in one way or another, that is when you aren't being arrested or spat upon by nobles... Stupid Charmles... From here you go to Chen Muis place and when you ask him abut the questions the team has he tells you that he'll reveal the truth after you beat the Lord of Dragovians. Of course I kinda knew half of it thanks to talking to people in Argonia and it's not that people are dropping hints here so much as beating you upside the head with them if you ask around. _ |_| Mini Medal |_| Fresh Milk |_| Fresh Milk |_| Premium Mould |_| Saint's Ashes |_| Mini Medal |_| Rock Salt |_| Mini Medal |_| Nook Grass |_| Yggdrasil Dew |_| Mini Medal |_| Chunky Cheese |_| Mini Medal |_| Angel Cheese |_| Highly-Strung Cheese |_| Mini Medal |_| Flail of Destruction (Princess Minnie) Buy (Just 2200 Gold Pieces Total) _ |_| 11 Devil's Tails Recipes _ |_| Goddess Shield + Devil's Tail |_| Mithril Helm + Devil's Tail |_| Hades' Helm + Saint's Ashes |_| Sorcerer's Ring + Devil's Tail |_| Uber-Double Edge + Devil's Tail |_| Assassin's Dagger + Devil's Tail |_| Devil's Tail + Saint's Ashes |_| Scourge Whip + Devil's Tail |_| Platinum Mail + Devil's Tail |_| Poison Needle + Devil's Tail + Battle Fork Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Steel Scythe + Poison Moth Knife + Hades' Helm |_| Mithril Helm + Cowpat + Fresh Milk --- HEAVENLY DAIS --- Hopefully you didn't have too much of a problem with the Dragovian Path because the Heavenly Dias is far more dangerous as enemies no longer have to rely on instant death attacks to take you down in the blink of an eye. While it is shorter than the Path, it is also more winding. In the first area, there's only 2 chests while in the second are you find the other 3 with the Lord of the Dragovians at the end. The Lord of the Dragovians however isn't that tough. All he can do are a few moderately powered regular attacks and desperate attacks, nothing the enemies in the area can't do, as well as a breath attack and sometimes an intimidating scream. In the end, he's not a great concern or challenge at this point in the game with all of the other similar enemies you've fought. The simple lower defense with Yangus, charge with Hero and keep alive with Jessica and Angelo will work nicely on him thus moving you on to being told directly about Heros backstory and more importantly opening up the alternate ending which sadly isn't too different from the first and also takes a long time to get through. The final test in the game, other than 100% completion, is now the Dragovian Trials and they make up for this relatively easy boss but the rewards are worth it. _ |_| Dangerous Bustier |_| Mini Medal |_| Mini Medal |_| Orichalcum |_| Skull Helmet |_| Argon Ring (Dragovian Sanctuary after beating the Dragovian Lord) Recipes _ |_| Dangerous Bustier + Shimmering Dress |_| 2x Skull Helmet + Saint's Ashes Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Sun Crown + Devil's Tail Recipes after Recipes after Recipes _ |_| Skull Helmet + Saint's Ashes --- DRAGOVIAN TRIALS (Each from beating Dragovian Lord) --- Trial one I completed at level 45 mostly out of a lack of desire to run around all day to get all my recipes completed and after this I got the Alchemy Pot upgrade so that I didn't have to listen for the ding and could have music on as I ran around the world in an attempt to get some monster drops completed as well as gain levels before the next trial which I completed at level 46 with some better equipment and chose Hev so that I could turn my second monster team from Metabble, Curer and Healslime to Hev, Curer and Healslime. Both those teams revive all of your guys to full health but with Hev is also lowers the enemies' defense for fun. Trial 3 I went right into again and completed at level 46 this time getting the Dragovian Armour since Hero didn't have much of an issue with Curse damage making the Liquid Metal Armour obsolete. Because I forgot to save after beating the Silver Dragon, I got annoyed and levelled to 48 before taking him on again and so I was also level 48 for the Golden Dragon where I got the Helmet in order to change my appearance and look far cooler than before. I then returned again to beat the Darksteel form immediately after at level 48 and got myself a fancy new shield. Standard attacking method: If you have Staffs upgraded you may want to have one equipped on both Angelo and Jessica in order to have some more magic for reviving people and healing yourself and possibly regenerating some each turn since if you are at a low level the Desperate attacks will most likely mean instant death for one of your guys. Angelo is of course a dedicated healer who should be casting Oomph or defending in hopes of blocking a desperate attack and conserving magic, Jessica should hopefully have maxed out Staff skills so that she has Kazing and can revive and maintain Acceleratle on everyone as well as Insulatle if possible and that form uses breaths. She can also use Oomph when needed and if she has nothing else to do, she can either switch over to Whips and use Double Dragon tail or use her Sage's Stone to heal as well. Yangus can use Helm Splitter to lower the Dragons defense and then start using whatever attack is strongest or if nothing else, try to steal a Seed of Skill. Your Hero will probably alternate between Full-Heal and trying to pull off an attack if possible after psyching up once or twice. Of course he also has the monster teams and should use them when best; realizing that the reviving team can save your ass in the amazingly common situation where he is the only one left standing. Pre-Trials - Lord of the Dragovians: Not the same Lord as last time, instead he's a human form dragovian who begins by cursing Dunatis preventing him from being able to do anything for a good while so summon your monster team to prevent this from happening. Otherwise he tends to psyche up before attacking or after attacking each round and he can do a Thin Air attack, a regular attack, our best friend the Wave of Ice, call forth bolts from the blue and heal himself 500 hp, since he builds tension every other turn however almost all the time, it is as though he were attacking only once per round at high strength. If he's a problem then you are introuble since he's the easiest of all 8 forms. No need to deviate from standard attacking methodology for his sake. Trial 1 - Vermillion Dragon: You could consider this form a rather advanced version of many regular dragons. All he really does is attack and use desperate attacks, use the standard fire breath and roar and finally use Gigaflash and blind everyone annoyingly. The big problem is that his desperate attack that he really enjoys using deals over 500 damage and tends to kill you outright every time. The standard tactics will work and after him you can upgrade everyones equipment with the Ultimate Alchemy Pot if you haven't already. Trial 2 - Emerald Dragon: I don't know if it was my new equipment or the fact that this guy likes his status ailments more but I found him far easier than the Vermillion Dragon. He lacks an elemental breath but instead has a damaging shout which can knock you down though it is rare that that happens. He also has a sleep breath, a paralysing breath and a poison breath. Needless to say you will use tingle alot but won't need to heal as much. He still has the very strong regular and Desperate attacks but you won't see them as often this time. His one real advantage is that he has far more health than the others but even this is not an issue. Trial 3 - Silver Dragon: This form is far more similar to the Vermillion Dragon except that instead of Gigaflash it will put only one character to sleep and has a far higher defense. Waking up a single person is easy since Hero and Angelo get Tingle easily which wastes one of his attacks and either Sap, Helm Splitter or Maximaster from your Heal-all monster team will help to lower his defense. I found this form so far to be the easiest of the three and didn't even need to summon either monster team. Since he does have an ice breath attack it's basically the standard attack method here once again. Trial 4 - Golden Dragon: This form is the first one which can both attack 3 times each round and even build tension automatically to 100, so why was he easier than the last guy? This form likes to use Kaboom and Kafrizzle though only at the beginning or when his tension os 0 for me it seems as he NEVER used it with even 5 tension which I wanted him to do so desperately. Because he had no Desperate attack, tension building then attacking was his main form of damage. 5 tension was weaker than a desperate attack and 20 tension meant he wasted 2 turns anyways while 50 tension meant there was at least one free round for you. He had no breath attack but he did once again have Gigaflash which once again was welcome. This form you see had incredibly high defense again except not against magic, though he was immune to any wind based magic. So I used Caduceus and the Sage's Stone to heal while having Jessica, Yangus and Hero build tension in order to get to 50 and cast Gigathrow, Big Banga or Kafrizzle each of which did about 500-900 damage and couldn't miss so being dazzled was no issue. As for his magic, at 0 tension he did around 50 damage with Kaboom and 30 with Kafrizzle, also with Bounce on both Jessica and Angelo he took 100 or 200 damage himself and could even blind himself with Gigaflash. He was very simple to beat. Trial 5 - Darksteel Dragon: This guy was harder than the Golden form, but not by much. Although he technically can blind you, put one person to sleep, cause meteors to fall from the sky and use Kasizzle, 95% of the time all he will do is a regular attack which is actually quite powerful. He has very few hitpoints which is good, but he also has an insane defense and you may as well consider him immune to magic. What then you ask? Well if you are lucky like me, you developed your Axe and Spear skills in order to get the instant critical attacks Lightning Thrust and Executioner in order to kill Metal Slimes since both those attacks are what you want to do against this guy. Each did just under 300 damage every hit for me and with Angelo and Jessica on healer duty since Oomph is useless, I made short work of this guy. _ |_| Ultimate Alchemy Pot (Instant completion of formulas) |_| Unlock Hev (Metal King Slime Monster) |_| Dragovian Sword |_| Dragovian Armour |_| Dragovian Shield |_| Dragovian Helm |_| Gospel Ring (Given by Trode assuming you beat all 295 Monsters) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Section 2: Remaining Items and Alchemy Formulas -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Congratulations You have just beaten the game and gotten every item there is to get without including drops and only using alchemy when all ingredients are at hand for all formulas. At this point in order to complete the alchemy list and fill out the top equipment (and all appearance modifying equipment) table I have made (your top equipment may differ) You will need the following items from the following enemy drops. Though some of the recipes can easily be done earlier I went through without them assuming poor luck as opposed to telling you which items to make. At the end, especially for the Dragovian Trials, you will most likely want that Timbrel of Tension or some Metal King Gear or even a second Sage's Stone. Go right ahead, I won't stop you, but I will make sure to have a strat to pull it all off without any of that as well as one for with all the best equipment and abilities for when we begin farming Skill Seeds to get all the Abilities for everyone. _ _ _ |_||_||_| 3 Dragon Scales Dropped by many Dragon Types |_| 1 Fishnet Stockings Dropped by Ice Queens |_| 1 Gold Nugget Dropped by Democrobot |_| _ _ _ _ 1 Iron Nail Dropped by many Iron and Material Enemies |_||_||_||_||_| |_| _ _ _ _ 6 Magic Beast Hides Dropped by many Monsters |_||_||_||_||_| |_||_||_||_||_| |_||_||_||_||_| 15 Orichalcums Dropped by Metal King Slimes and Pandora's Boxes |_||_||_| 3 Ruinous Shields Dropped by Hell's Gatekeepers |_||_| _ _ _ 2 Rusty Old Swords Dropped by Invisible Swordsmen |_||_||_||_||_| |_| _ _ _ _ 6 Slime Crowns Dropped by King Slimes and Metal King Slimes |_||_||_||_||_| |_| 6 Wings of Bat Dropped by many Monsters These will open up the new alchemical chains below --- DRAGON SCALE RECIPES --- _ |_| Leather Shield + Dragon Scale |_| Snakeskin Whip + Dragon Scale + Dragon Scale |_| Silver Mail + Dragon Scale + Dragon Scale |_| Steel Shield + Dragon Scale + Dragon Scale --- GOLD NUGGET RECIPES --- _ |_| 2x Iron Axe + Gold Nugget |_| Thinking Cap + Siver Tiara + Gold Nugget Recipes after Gold Nugget Recipes _ |_| Golden Axe + Moon's Mercy --- IRON NAIL RECIPES --- _ |_| Boomerang + Iron Nail |_| Leather Hat + Iron Nail Now you can complete Dodgy Dave in Pickham --- DODGY DAVE --- _ |_| 400 Gold Coins (reward for Special Medicine) |_| 1,200 Gold Coins (reward for Reinforced Boomerang) |_| Bandit Axe (reward for Ring of Immunity) |_| 6,000 Gold Coins (reward for Robe of Serenity) |_| Happy Hat (reward for Sandstorm Spear) |_| Big Boss Shield (reward for Crimson RObe) Recipes after Iron Nail Recipes _ |_| Stone Axe + Pointy Hat Recipes after Recipes after Iron Nail Recipes _ |_| Cypress Stick + Stone Hard Hat |_| Bronze Knife + Bronze Knife + Stone Hardhat --- RECIPES AFTER FISHNET STOCKINGS AND IRON NAIL RECIPES --- _ |_| Fishnet Stockings + Happy Hat Recipes after Recipes after Fishnet Stockings and Iron Nail Recipes _ |_| Feathered Cap + Elevating Shoes --- MAGIC BEAST HIDE RECIPES --- _ |_| Magic Beast Hide + Wayfarer's Clothes |_| Boxer Shorts + Magic Beast Hide |_| Magic Beast Hide + Dancer's Costume |_| Magic Beast Hide + Magic Beast Hide |_| Pot Lid + Magic Beast Hide |_| Sun Crown + Magic Beast Hide + Tough Guy Tattoo --- RECIPES AFTER DRAGON SCALE AND MAGIC BEAST HIDE RECIPES --- _ |_| Leather Armour + Dragon Scale --- WING OF BAT RECIPES --- _ |_| Wing of Bat + Wing of Bat |_| Holy Water + Cowpat + Wing of Bat |_| 2x Holy Silver Rapier + Devil's Tail + Wing of Bat |_| Edged Boomerang + Wing of Bat + Steel Scythe |_| Cloak of Evasion + Wing of Bat + Devil's Tail Recipes after Wing of Bat Recipes _ |_| Fallen Angel Rapier + Gold Ring |_| Razor Wing Boomerang + Metal King Spear |_| Fallen Angel Rapier + Mercury's Bandana + Mercury's Bandana --- RECIPES AFTER SLIME CROWN AND GOLD NUGGET RECIPES --- _ |_| Golden Axe + Slime Crown --- ORICHALCUM RECIPES --- _ |_| 4x Recovery Ring + Golden Tiara + Orichalcum |_| 2x Agility Ring + Agility Ring + Orichalcum |_| Uber War Hammer + Conquerer's Axe + Orichalcum Recipes after Orichalcum Recipes _ |_| 3x Meteorite Bracer + Falcon Blade --- RECIPES AFTER ORICHALCUM AND GOLD NUGGET --- _ |_| Gold Nugget + Orichalcum + Yggdrasil Dew --- RECIPES AFTER ORICHALCUM AND Slime Crown --- _ |_| 4x Liquid Metal Armour + Slime Crown + Orichalcum --- RECIPES AFTER ORICHALCUM AND RUINOUS SHIELD --- _ |_| 4x Ruinous Shield + Saint's Ashes + Orichalcum Recipes after Recipes after Orichalcum and Ruinous Shield _ |_| Metal King Shield + Devil's Tail Recipes after Recipes after Recipes after Orichalcum and Ruinous Shield _ |_| Ruinous Shield + Saint's Ashes + Orichalcum --- RECIPES AFTER RUSTY OLD SWORD, ORICHALCUM AND SLIME CROWN --- _ |_| 2x Rusty Old Sword + Orichalcum + Slime Crown Recipes after Recipes after Rusty Old Sword, Orichalcum and Slime Crown _ |_| Dragovian Sword + Liquid Metal Sword |_| Liquid Metal Sword + Mystifying Mixture + Cowpat Recipes after Recipes after Recipes after Rusty Old Sword, Orichalcum and Slime Crown _ |_| Rusty Old Sword + Orichalcum + Slime Crown -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Section 3: Arena Monsters -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The first name refers to what the monster is called in the arena and battles while the second name is what they are called when you fight them.

If you are a completion fanatic like myself, I recommend starting with enemies that only appear in one location before worrying abut getting that rare drop from a slime since you will be able to find the less rare monsters later on and might get lucky then, no need to waste your time. Also, when Yangus steals from a monster it is counted as a drop so steal every attack, even when he does steal they can drop again, I've had more drops than enemies defeated of a certain type and so can you. Beyond that there is one thing I've found which has yet to be mentioned in any other FAQ I've found so maybe I can take credit for now, but that is how to unlock other monster animations. when in your bestiary, if you hit X it will play an animation but by hitting O it will select a new animation for that monster and play it. However not all monsters have the same amount of battle animations and they do not all appear at once unless it is a boss monster. All boss monsters begin with every animation unlocked however regular enemies follow a pattern of unlocking I noticed but don't have completely done yet. 1 Animation - Kill 1 2 Animations - Kill 1 3 Animations - Kill 5 4 Animations - Kill 10 5 Animations - Kill 20 6 Animations - Kill 20-63? 7 Animations - Kill 20-63? 8 Animations - Kill 20-63? 9 Animations - ? I have proven the first 5 by testing but haven't tested the others quite yet and so far the most animations I've seen is 8 for the Magic Dumbbell at 63 kills so somewhere between 20 and 63 are the other 3 animations. I have yet to see any creature with 9. Next playthrough I will test it all out on Magic Dumbbells which may be hard if they decide to summon 7 buddies on me and throw off my numbers... I will also try to find the max number of unlockable animations for each monster once I find out the numbers for unlocking and if 8 is the max number to unlock. Sure most people don't care, but perfectionists like myself will. Besides, most of the work will be done by the time you get everythings drops into the encyclopedia. _ _ _ |_| -001- Slime |_| Medicinal Herb |_| Amor Seco Essence |_| -002- Candy Cat |_| Medicinal

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Section 5: Item Lists and Alchemy Requirements -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In here you will find a listing of all the items in the game as well as how you will be able to get them, this list is moreso for planning your own changes to my list more easily and so that you know which items can be sold without worry of having gotten rid of a unique item you may want or a hard to come by item for an alchemy formula. Story related items are not mentioned here as this is a 100% completion guide and it's pretty hard to get to the end of the game without the story items :P. I keep Falcon Blades as they offer higher potential damage at the very end of the gamefor those confused. R = Recipe D = Dropped by some enemy B = Bought F = Found in the game as a treasure as well as how many, this includes constant boss drops Possible Best Equipment Hero Dragovian King Sword R Hero Spear F1 Metal Wing Boomerang R Uber Falcon Blade R Dragovian Helm F1 Metal King Armour R Metal King Shield R Goddess Ring R Dragovian Armour F1 Yangus Flail of Destruction F1 Heavy Hatchet B King Axe R Megaton Hammer R Metal King Armour R Metal King Helm F1 Metal King Shield R Goddess Ring R Jessica Gringham Whip B Liquid Metal Sword R Magical Mace BF1 Uber Falcon Blade R Metal King Armour R Sun Crown R Metal King Shield R Goddess Ring R Bunny Ears R Bunny Suit RF1 Dangerous Bustier F2 Dancer' Costume BDF1 Divine Bustier R Fishnet Stockings F1 Magic Bikini B Jessicas Outfit F1 Angelo Liquid Metal Sword R Magical Mace BF1 Odin's Bow R Uber Falcon Blade R Metal King Armour R Phantom Mask R Metal King Shield R Goddess Ring R -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Items used in Alchemy, Top Equipment or Dodgy Dave -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In here I will also mention how many of each item is required for completion of all alchemical formulae so that you end up with the equipment listed above.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accreditations and Apologies -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In creation of this guide to make sure I missed as little as possible, I built the item locations lists using the Side Quest FAQ/Item Checklist by HugDaddy (Adam G.) as a template correcting any discrepencies between what I found and what was listed as well as using Red Scarlets FAQ/Walkthrough if I was unable to find the location of an item listed as well as for the monster drop list which I am still attempting to complete and confirm on my own file. I was told by Adam that my first posted FAQ lacked accreditation and I sincerely apologize for having lost it in earlier versions. It took 6 seperate submissions to GameFAQs before I was accepted. Initially all I had was section 5 and eventually had to play through the game once more and turn it into a complete (albeit non-detailed) walkthrough before it was accepted and in these many version changes I may have deleted the accreditations when I pasted in the final section. I do believe in credit where credit is due, both good and bad and so I admit that I made a mistake and missed out on crediting them when I was finally accepted and that they had done the work, and done it well, long before I followed in their footsteps. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Credits -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks to an unknown person who e-mailed me telling me that I had missed a chest between Alexandria and Port Prospect. I would name you however like the lazy bum that I am, I did not move your e-mail from the junk folder (heavy filter, 95% junk mail and too lazy to delete 30 a day manually) before it was automatically deleted. Should you care to be named e-mail me again and I will do it properly next time. Thank you also for sending me sites featuring both a monster location list and a treasure map, I only have the image locations so I cannot accredit those who made them unless they name themselves or are named by others, but here are the links. http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/144/treasuremap6vy.jpg http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/7664/monstermap4tr.jpg Thanks to Leah Devulder for telling me about a Holy Water I somehow missed in the Woodsmans Hut as well as Fresh Milk from cows by the Riverside Chapel, Red's house, the Chapel of Autumn, on the hill leading up to Empycchu and behind Minnie's Castle. I somehow missed those 2 items and one of those milks but completely neglected the other milks. Luckily cows are still there to confirm that I am a tard. I was also told about some of the aforementioned items by Jenny L, Nate Railsback and Phil Watkins. Mostly the treasure by Red's but also a few of the cows. That'll teach me for not updating for nearly a year. Hopefully that covers all the treasure however and that section will not need updating beyond locations of treasures within towns which is reserved for my next playthrough.
