When you enter you can either rush to the Labyrinth or wander around aimlessly.
Your choice. At the inn west of town is a Wind Fruit. The bookcase beside the
closet also holds an "alchemist". The Weapon/Armor shop has nothing much
interesting if you bought the Zircon stuff, but you may want to get some cheap
stuff if you didn't bought it all. Now the house just west of the shops holds
another "Alchemist". The house northwest is a church, you might consider
saving. Also break the pots for a Power Source. In the house northeast you can
get a Revive. The elder also says you look like his daughter. Upstairs is a
Magic Source and a Hi-Magic. Now go north to the Labyrinth.
Here follow the same path as last time until you reach the 9 jars. Get the Aqua
Fruit then continue west next room. Read the plate and proceed. You'll realize
it's the same dungeon as before, but the water is somewhat lower. Get in the
water, west, out with the ladder, ignore it and continue north through the door
door. Get the Mind Source and go back to the ladder you ignored. Go down and
Get out and north to next room. Break the crack on the wall and proceed. Break
the right crack, then continue to get a Meat Cube. Go back, break the left one,
any of the 2 above, again and get the Solid Milk. Go back 2 "rooms" and break
the leftmost crack. Continue and get the Magic Source. Go back previous room
and fall down the middle hole.
Go up the ladder and follow the path south until the junction. Go west and
enter the first door. Press the switch, then continue west to another door. Get
the Sea King Helm. Now go back to the junction and south to next room. Get in
the water and go southeast in the opening. Follow the path to next room. Go
west, cross the bridge, and go south next room.
Here simply follow the path to next room. Whip across, then north next room.
Get in the water and up the ladder. Push the crate, skip the ladder, push the
other crate and go through the door. Get the Surf Staff, Pure Water, Sacred
Fruit and Revive. Now go back and up the ladders and next room.
Go north and through the door. Go south, down the ladders and in the opening
west. Follow the path until you reach the same boss you fought before (or
should I say, after?) Well, don't stand there, go fight it!
* Boss: Kraken *
SUGGESTED LEVELS: 23
It's the same boss you fought last time, but a little beefed up. Use the same
strats: begin with a SlashAll or a RapidFire to get rid of both See Giants
around it, then plague it with lighting. Its attacks are kinda more powerful
than before, and it may hit for around 50 with its Tsunami. So be careful, heal
and use what's most powerful.
Now go through the door and get the Sea Stone. Now, if you followed everything
right, you should have 4 shards and 4 stones. Break the crack and get the
Healing Disc. The ladder leads to a beast area, but there's nothing there now.
So go back to the ladders, climb them up and go west, down, break the crack and
go through. Follow the path to the Time Portal. Nice, now we can go back to the
present! But as soon as you appear, a pirate says Gratze as taken away everyone
from Gruberik. But strangely, if you head for Gruberik, there're still people
there... Anyway, head for Gratze.
37. Gratze Revisited
Items: Crystal Robe, Revival Armor, Stun Gun, Pure Water, Magic Source, Mind
Source, Speed Source, 100G
Go north to the city. It seems like Parcelyte attacked. There are lots of dead
soldiers around. Anyway just head back to the fortress.
Here just take the same route as you did before. When you reach the pipe, get
on and follow it to the junction. Go south and down, east and into the prison.
There you'll meet... yup, Cashwell and his son. Torma's not sure what to do, so
he asks Eldin, which doesn't say a word, but Torma seem happy anyway. So just
go east to the last jail. Seems like Marin's there. Dekar cant seem to do
anything, so lets find the "Jail Key".
So now go back to the entrance. Oh, a guard... Ain't gonna tell you AGAIN how
to do it, should be a joke by now. Just some easy exp. After the fight he'll
run off. Chase him around.
Outside you'll see him on the pipe. Just go back to the junction and go east
all the way to the other junction, south and down. Go west and back on. You'll
see the soldier again. Go inside, up the right elevator and out. Cut the wire
and go south. Follow the path (the new chest is a Faux Chest so ignore it), go
up the ladder and continue. Go south at both junctions.
From now on it's pretty much the same as before. You'll eventually see Tappa
(remember him from the beginning? You know, the only blue guard) He killed the
gratze guy for you. Just continue same way you did last time. Go back to the
first room with invisible platforms. This time fall down. Go southeast. You'll
see the soldier. Follow him. However, before going inside, go right and get the
Crystal Robe, the Revival Armor and the Stun Gun. Now go in. Here you'll find
lots of guards. You can go straight to the one behind the bottom bed, or kill
everyone else. I'd do it cause they give 24000 exp and aren't really tougher
than normal enemies. After you fought the right guard, pick the Jail Key.
Now you may consider Escaping, since it's faster than walking all the way back.
So get back to the prison. Open the doors using the Key to get some nice
treasures (Pure Water, Magic Source, Mind Source, Speed Source, crappy 100G
from that crappy Cashwell). Also, in the cell with the pirate, bash the
skellies to reach the Music Box. This is part of Bandino's Jobs. Check the
Stuff section for more info.
When you unlock Marin, Dekar will leave you... Now just get out and you'll be
back at Parcelyte.
She said to meet up at the church, so head there. You'll see everyone you
saved. Save yourself and get out of town. Head for Karnack.
Items: Mind Source, Life Source, Dark Fruit
The landscape kinda change. Now they're in rainy season. Around town you'll
hear a new tower has appeared in the desert, though im sure you noticed it
already on the map. The shop got new stuff, you may wanna check it out. East of
town is a fish, its an alchemist. Near the tent where the Chemist lives are
some jars, break them for a Mind Source and a Life Source. Also, there's a Dark
Fruit in the jars west. Now, when you feel ready, head for Lugwa Tower
39. Lugwa Tower
Items: Bolt Shield, Wind Shield, Magic Source, Life Source, Strong Disc, Terror
Ball, Escape Ball, Sacred Fruit, Pure Water, Wind Fruit, Nectar, Rainbow Veil
Suggested Levels: 24
Once here just go right and get the Bolt Shield. Now go left all the way and
through the small door. Go north and down the ladder, then get the Wind Shield.
Get downstairs and bash the skeleton heads to eventually get a Magic Source.
Also, you can get a Life Source from the eastmost jar. Pull the switch around,
then go north and pull the other switch. Sand will rain all over the place
(hope you got the stuff first). Anyway head north. Take the Blue Flame and head
back to the Tower's entrance.
Go north and in. Neo Goblins around here come in group of 3 and can drop Power
Sources. I almost get one every fight! Its worth trying. Break the pot north
for a Strong Disc. Go up the left stairs. Go south and east for a Terror Ball.
Head back to the 1st floor and up the right stairs. Go south then north. Break
the skulls and proceed northwest to a chest. It's actually an alchemist! Now
head back south all the way and go east. Break the crack and go downstairs. Get
the Gold Flame then go back upstairs. Head west and upstairs.
Go west and navigate the simple maze to reach 3 jars. Get the Escape Ball and
head back to the stairs. This time go east and east at the split to eventually
get a Sacred Fruit. Head back and go west and in the room. Step on the switch.
The invisible platforms will show themselves, and you'll have to remember where
they are. Footsteps on the visible ones may help you guide your way. In case
you got problems, do this: from the switch, go 2 west, 4 north, 2 east, 1
south, 2 east, 2 north, 1 east, 2 north, 1 west, 1 north, 2 west, 2 south, 3
west, 1 south, 2 west, 2 south, 2 west, 4 north, 3 east, 1 north and upstairs.
Get the Pure water from the chest. Go west and get the Nectar. Go east a little
and south to next room. Get the White Flame and head back. Continue east a
little and get the Holy Edge. Head back to the stairs and east and break the
pot for a Wind Fruit. Now go up the stairs. Follow the path to next screen.
You'll be pretty high, though I don't remember climbing that much... Now go up
that spiral tower. You need to go in at some points so you can reach the
statues. Examine them with Rubius, then head for the other one. Eventually,
you'll stop looping and get sent to a new statue. Go and examine it. The path
will reveal itself. Go up to the pad and you'll reach a new place.
Climb the ladder, get the Rainbow Veil from the chest. Put the flames at the
correct place, White being Peace, Blue Life and Gold Prosperity. Now a monster
will appear. Fight it.
* Boss: Dark Guardian *
SUGGESTED LEVELS: 25
This boss ain't tough, he's just SO DAMN ANNOYING. He heals itself for 360!
Just use whatever you got and hope he attacks instead, since his attacks are
nothing to fear. Maybe 40-50 max damage. He can also Mind Blast, which is bad.
And that's about all.
After the fight, you'll get a song... As Rubius said, let's head for the Tower
