FAQ: Where do I go next?
A: Check my Walkthrough.
FAQ: How do I unlock the Sound Test?
A: Go to the Battle Arena. Talk to the girl in the lower left corner (who talks about you not working out much) while holding the L or R Button. She'll ask for your song request. Scroll through the songs and press A to play the one you want.
FAQ: How do I unlock the Send feature in Golden Sun?
A: Hold R and Left, then press B or Start.
FAQ: My question isn't answered in here!
A: E-mail me (my address is on the top few lines) or post a topic on the message boards with your question and I'll add the answer to the appropriate section.
FAQ: I saved and quit, and when I restarted I'm stuck in an area! Do I have to restart my game!? Help!
A: Use the return to last Sanctum trick, which, obviously, returns you to the last Sanctum you visited. To do the trick, hold L, Select, and Start when loading a game.
FAQ: I've heard you can get to the old Golden Sun land! Is this true?
A: Yes, but you can't enter any towns (Vale is just a decoration on the world map and all the other towns and landmarks are gone, except for Venus and Babi Lighthouse). You can't go everywhere because the caves are missing, though. You can get past the Karagol Sea because the Kalay Port is gone, though. To reach the old land, first go to the tiny beach southwest of Loho. Get on your boat and get it in between the beach and the tiny strip of land next to some mountains. Press A when you are facing the tip of this piece of land and you should be off into the old Golden Sun land!
Q: What is the item-dupe glitch I've heard of?
A: In the words of rockmanxv3:
"I'm confirming something somebody posted about but didn't quite realize what he had stumbled upon. (Sorry, I don't know your name.)
MAKE SURE YOU SAVE BEFORE YOU DO THIS, I'VE DONE IT BUT IN A DIFFERENT WAY, ALTHOUGH THIS SHOULD WORK.
While you're taking Trial Road, finish one of the things and get to the chests. Open them, then drop anything droppable, doesn't matter at ALL what (DM note: do this on the put-item-in-chest screen). Then go step on the quit switch. When you get out, you should have all your stuff back. What's more, when you finally BEAT Trial Road, you can go to the shop to buy duplicates of whatever you dropped! If it works this way, you should be able to dupe whatever you want as many times as you want. I haven't personally confirmed this, but the worst thing that seems likely as that you won't be able to buy the dupes.
If you want to know how I did it, I made sure I had extra armor (Like really cheap stuff.) and put them in the chests. At this point, I dropped everything I wanted to dupe, then made it to the top and whooped up. Then I got all the items I dropped back PLUS I could still buy the dupes at the shop. The above way is better because if it works you should be able to dupe several times. (4 Golden Boots @.@)"
This glitch was confirmed by yours truly and several others.
Q: I need to use Whirlwind, but Sheba doesn't know it! Please help!
A: Either put all her Djinn on standby or give her only Jupiter Djinn and she'll have it. Also make sure she doesn't have any class-changing items.
Q: I need to use Frost, but Piers doesn't know it! Please help!

Q: How do I get out of Kandorean Temple?
A: At the bottom of Master Poi's room, you'll see two doorways on the left and right sides. These are what he uses to go and see his students. Take the left door and slide down the chute on the wall to be back outside the original entrance.
Q: When do I meet with my old party?
A: After Jupiter Lighthouse, 2/3-3/4 of the way through the game.
Q: I forgot to get the Tremor Bit, and now the tunnel in Madra Catacombs leading to it is blocked! Please help!
A: It is possible to get the Tremor Bit through either entrance to the catacombs. You just need Reveal for the unblocked one.
Q: How do I go back through Dehkan Plateau?
A: Climb the first stairs from the exit of Dehkan Plateau. Then go up the stairs northwest of those, which you didn't use to get down. Push the pillar at the top left into the indent and climb the vine and go up to get back to the path you took to get out.
Q: Where are the 3 pieces of the Trident?
A: The 3 pieces are in Ankohl Ruins, Shrine of the Sea God, and Tundaria Tower.
