Golden Sun Comprehensive FAQ/Walkthrough

By: Ikillkenny (Mike Bentley) with a Djinn Guide by Baby M

5) Walkthrough


Head to the Inn in Kalay to heal all of your wounds that you got in Lupna. Once you're all rested, head out the inn and to the castle in the north part of the town. In the main hallway of the castle you'll see that servant Bunza who's wagon helped Lord Hammet and your party flee from Lupna. He'll tell you that he left the Secret Entrance to the castle open. Before you go to the secret entrance, head to Lord Hammet's room to find a *really* ungrateful and bitter Lady Layana who says that she didn't want you to go and that Kalay should have handled it. Once she's done being ungrateful, head out of the room. Before you go to the tunnel, you may want to get the water jacket located in a treasure chest in a room in the west-going hallway in the castle. Once you're done doing that, head through the door on the east and go down the stairs. Go through the now open gate in this room and down the stairs. In this room keep going south to get 4 treasure chests with a few minor items in there. Now, it's once again time to push a statue a long distance. Push the statue next the treasure chests all the way to the north and then to the west. The objective here is to have the statue block the water fall to empty the water in the room. Once you've stopped the water flow, climb down the ladder on the east and freeze the lone drop of water still left. Now, climb up the ladder and hop across the ice pillar to get some handy Spirit Gloves. Head back up the ladder on the right and go up the long tunnel to the north. Head up the stairs here, and in the next room proceed south then east. When you get to the east wall head north and down the stairs. In this room head south along the hallway to find another waterfall and a Djinn. Like the previous waterfall, push the statue into it to block its flow and drain the water. Simply head down the ladder and up the other ladder to get the Mars Djinn Scorch without a battle. Head back up the ladder and go to the east to find a door that will take you on top of a cliff to the east part of Kalay.

Head out of Kalay and go southeast to get to reach Gondowan Cave again. Back track through this cave hopping over the river via the stumps you pushed in earlier to backtrack more quickly (you could also use Retreat.) Once you're outside of the cave head northwest back towards Tolbi. Head to the castle in Tolbi to rest and then exit Tolbi once more.

To the Suhulla/Desert

Once you've exited Tolbi, head south over the bridge to meet up with Iodem, the servant who was going to help you get to Babi Lighthouse after Collosso. Once you're across the bridge, keep heading southeast until you reach Suhulla. The first thing you want to do in Suhulla is to head to the house with a red carpet on the roof which is located in the southwestern part of town. In here Iodem will find two downed warriors who were unable to get past the monsters in Suhulla Desert. They'll also reveal that they lost Sheba, a girl who has some importance to Iodem. They also reveal an important detail for getting past the sandstorms, which is that you can get past the sandstorms with water. Finally, they also reveal that Saturous, etc. got through and are at this very moment on their way to Babi Lighthouse (dramatic music plays.) Once Iodem's done talking in there, you can now head out of the town and south into the Suhulla Desert.

Suhulla Desert

When you first enter the desert, you may be surprised to see that there isn't a heat bar on the side this time like there was in the Lamarkan Desert. Instead, the main obstacle of this desert is small tornados that will sweep you up and land you back in the village of Suhulla. In order to get past these Tornados you'll need to drench them with Douse that you get by equipping Douse Drop (you should have this item from beating Manticore in the previous Desert.) Set Douse as one of your Hot keys (such as the L or R button ) and get ready to go through the Suhulla Desert. Besides the tornados, the random battle monsters that you fight in this level are going to be much more difficult than what you had experienced in the past. Make sure to not go into random battles without full health. Here's a neat little thing about Suhulla Desert: If you use reveal you can sometimes find footsteps of hints on where to go (of course, you can also just use this walkthrough ;-] ).

When you enter the desert you'll want to head West until you get to a wall where you'll want to head south. When the path becomes very narrow it will be time for the first sand storm to appear. When it does, Iodem will pop out and mention how there are so many of these in the desert and that it's unusual. Now, head into the sand storm and use Douse. After the rain stops, you'll fall down to the bottom of the Cyclone and face the large monster, Tornado Lizard. Tornado Lizards are much harder than regular Random Battle enemies, but they're not quite boss like. 1 or 2 4-Level summons should be able to whipe these guys clean off of the face of the earth. So, before going into any tornado put all of your Djinn on Standby (except Mia's, of course, so that you get Wish) and get ready for a battle. Tornado Lizard really doesn't have a devastating attack, so you can afford to not use Wish every turn. If you don't want to use your Summons on him, do the simple Ragnarok/Attack/Plasma/Attack strategy (going from Issac to Mia) strategy with the occasional Wish and Djinn to beat him pretty easily.

When you beat the Tornado Lizard the sand storm will disappear and you'll be able to continue southeast. Keep going until you get to three sandstorm paths that you can go through. You'll want to hit the path that's most the east and fight another Tornado Monster. Use the same strategy mentioned before. Once you defeat him, keep going along the path as it progresses to due west and end up on the next screen.

As soon as you get to the next screen there will be another 3-Path choice each with its own sandstorm. The path that you want to take is the middle path. So, go up in the sandstorm and use Douse on it to fight another Tornado Lizard. Once again use the same strategy that you used before to defeat him easily. When you've defeated the Tornado Lizard, continue advancing north along the hallway. The hallway will head very linearly for quite a while. Eventually you'll see a pink sand storm on your right. This pink sand storm will take you to Crossbone Island, which I'll cover a little later in the game. However, you will want to head that way to get another Djinn. In order to find the Djinn, use Reveal to find a hidden stump to jump over to a ledge to the west. This ledge is a little north of the ladder leading down from the ledge. Once you've revealed the stump, jump across it and head down the ladder. Here you'll find a Mars Djinn that you will have to battle. He'll have some reasonably powerful fire attacks, so make sure to heal with Mia and don't be arrogant. Once you beat him you'll get the Mars Djinn Flash. Flash is a *very* useful Djinn especially later on in the game because he has the ability to block a lot of damage taken to the whole party.

Now, head back up the ladder and go east (going through that cave will take you to the pink sand storm which we don't want to go to yet.) Before you head down the ladder, you'll want to save and inactivate all of your Djinn (of course, keep 4 of Mia's active.) However, if you have much more than 4 Djinn for some the characters, you may want to activate Djinn like Flint, Quartz, Scorch, Flash and Squall. Now, head down the ladder and go south a little. Suddenly a giant sand storm will come after you. My advice is to just stay where you are and let it get you to avoid random attacks. Once you're in it, use Douse like usual to drop down and fight the monster.

This monster isn't just another Tornado Lizard. The monster that you now face is a Storm Lizard and he's a mean mama-jama (a la Shaft.) Storm Lizard has a Sonic Slash attack that's simply devastating. It will attack all of your Party Members and do at least 150 damage to all of them. First things first, cast all of your Summons. For each round use Wish with Mia. With Issac, use Ragnarok and occasionally Flint. Also, if a player goes down use Quartz that you should have active by now to restore that player. With Garret you'll want to use Heat Wave unless the party is hurting when you'll want to use the Djinn Flash who will reduce damage taken to each character in that round to about 8. With Ivan you should use primarily Djinn that attack or do some sort of status change to Storm Lizard in hopes to stunning him. Another good Djinn to use with Ivan is Zephyr which will boost party agility. If you use a lot of Djinn, it's possible to cast another high level summon on the Storm Lizard which will really help you out. Generally by the time you cast another Summon, Storm Lizard will be under 500 HP and you should be able to kill him with it. When you kill him you'll get 1300 experience and 6900 coins in addition to a handy Psy Crystal (keep saving these.) If you are unable to beat Tornado Lizard, here a few tips to help you out: Try running south to a rock circle similar to that in the Lamarkan desert with a Psy Crystal in it. You can also outrun the tornado all together if you're quick, because you really don't need to fight it (although I recommend doing it for the experience and Psy Crystal.)

any ways, once you've defeated the Storm Lizard, head south and grad the Psynergy Stone in the rock circle. Keep going along the sole path to finally spot an exit going east. Iodem will jump out and mention how they didn't find Sheba. Don't worry about her, you'll meet up with her later. Instead, keep going out the desert and head east to enter Suhulla Gate.
