Items: 100G x2, 50G, Katyusha, Cloth Tunic, Insect Egg, Antidote, Sanity Pill,
Simple Ring x2, Mysterious Pin, Sharp Bone, Field Disc, Potion, Vitamins,
Once in this new town, its time to search stuff. In the south-eastern house,
there's a bookcase. Check it twice (you never get bored :P) to get 100G. If you
go to the south-western house, you'll find out you can climb on the roof. Do it
and jump at the other end. Cut the grass patch to reveal a Katyusha. To get out
of there, enter via the back door just below where the grass patch was. Get the
Cloth Tunic and push the boxes and go right. One of the kids is an Alchemist.
In the closet is an Insect Egg. Talk to the teacher and she'll ask you a
question (the answer if 7) Fail it and you'll be stuck at school for the day :(
Get out, and go to the northern houses. One of them has a 2 jars on the left.
Just below them (not visible) is an Antidote. Careful not to break it!
Now, go through the main stairway. Torma will leave you. Go in the bar to the
right. Open the closet to get a Sanity Pill. Get out, and go in the big house
north. Go upstairs and open the closet to get a Simple Ring that increases does
+3DFP. Pretty simple heh?. Now go south and enter Torma's house. After the
conversation, Torma will join back. If you open the closet inside, a rat will
run out. Now go north to reach the marketplace. On the way is a kid, give him a
Charred Newt and he'll give you a Cave Disc.
Enter the pub and go upstairs. Open the closet to get a Mysterious Pin. Go in
the weapon shop north of the items shop. Go upstairs, push the crate near the
shopkeeper and open the second closet for a Sharp Bone. Now, go to the left of
the inn (north of weapon shop). There a pot. Break it and collect the Field
Disc. Now go in the inn. In the basement (left door) there's 2 closets. They
hold a Potion and Vitamins. On the second story, the closet is locked. Exit the
inn. Finally, visit the north-eastern house (near the docks) and open the
closets to get 50G. You may also want to visit Cashwell's Mansion for a Simple
Ring and 100G (from the bookcase).
On the docks (to the right of the marketplace) is a Hi-Potion.
Now, go back to the marketplace and north to the Hunter's Guild. Just right is
the church. Enter the guild and take the door to the right to reach the
basement. The closet contains a Hi-Potion. Go back up. The middle door holds a
disc shop. You can also do some business with your monsters there. The right
door leads to Bandino. He can give you jobs. And I'm talking about REAL jobs,
not those mindless skill-teaching jobs. They're about finding an item in the
Ancient Cave and surviving the way back. He will give you cash rewards.
Now you can go get some jobs. Follow the red carpet to reach the room. There
are 6 jobs: the Priest (healing magics), the Mage (support magic), the
Swordsman (sword techs), Wizard (offensive magics), Fighter (combat tricks) and
Thief (varied). Choose whatever you like, but I'd recommend having both Torma
and Eldin learn Heal from the Priest first. Having many healers is always
Exit the Guild and go west until you reach the Ancient Cave. An Alchemist is
around here. The cave is closes... Too bad. Just go back to the marketplace.
You'll see a girl being stolen by the hunter she hired!. Chase the thief around
the marketplace (go south on the main path, then go west, then go near the
items shop, go east until you reach the main path, he'll be there, go north
until you see him, east towards the dock and finally on the docks) Arrived on
the docks, go north to the next screen. There, talk with the 2 guys and return
to the basement of the inn. Torma will be there with the girl. He will join you
Now, she's got a really good way to convince you to help her, no? Guess you
don't have much choice. Go back to the pirate ship. Walk near it and Torma will
ask if you want to go in. Of course, you want to.
5. The Pirate Ship and the Auction
Items: Terror Ball, Antidote, Potion, Wind Fruit
In the ship there're no enemies, simply Pirate Guards that will take you out if
they spot you. The goal here is to get back the stuff the thief stolen from
When you enter the ship, first go left where the jar is. Wait until the pirate
in front of you is looking away. Quickly pick the jar and drop it anywhere.
Open the chest to get a Terror Ball. Now, go right 1 tile, 3 north (watch out
for the pirate) and left to get a Antidote. Go back to the stairs you came from
and this time go right. Wait for the left pirate to be looking away and for the
right one to have passed the corner. Follow him in the back, he won't see you.
At the next corner, continue to follow the pirate up some tiles, then go right
when the top one is looking away. Around the next pile of stuff you should see
2 other pirates. Use the same strategy to avoid them. You'll see some stairs to
the right. Take them down.
You'll overhear a conversation between 3 pirates. You'll learn they sold a
piece of what you're looking for. When you're back in control, go left until
you see the 3rd door. Enter through it and break the jar to reveal a Potion.
Continue east and cross while the pirate is looking away. There are 2
treasures: the first one is a Wind Fruit, the other the Gold Shard. You'll
automatically be taken outside of the ship.
From there, return to the inn's basement. There will be a conversation. You
need to buy the stolen stone from the auction house, but you need a membership
card. The girl will then present herself. She is Rubius. You'll also hear
Eldin's only words: "I'm Eldin". After the conversation, go out. The Ancient
Cave is now open, if you wanna go take a look.
Now about getting the membership card. Go to the pub. There, you will see Marin
dance. Now, go talk to the cool-looking-guy with glasses. He's Cashwell's son.
He seems to have a crush on Marin, like everyone else. He wants you to go get a
gift for her. What would be nice? A bunch of Pripheas, of course! Head to
Parcelyte and talk to the mayor to get some flowers. Depending on what you said
at the beginning, they may be free or cost 50G. Return to Gruberik he will ask
you to give the flowers to Marin. Now, go upstairs talk to her. Go back
downstairs and now he'll want you to give her a love letter. Torma, tired of
this nonsense, will leave. Go give the letter to Marin and she will give you
the Membership Card. With it you can access the auction.
Go to the marketplace and east near the docks. There, you will see a path going
north. This is Cashwell's mansion. There, Rubius will meet you and give you
500G to buy the stone. She'll also join your party. Head north and enter the
mansion. Now, go downstairs. The auction will begin immediately. Wait 3 times
then bid 450G to get the stone as cheap as possible.
Outside, Rubius will ask you to come with her to Karnak. Agree, then get out.
You won't have Torma for the next while, so make sure to get some good stuff.
That bronze armor is really great, you should get it. Doing some Ancient Cave
can be a nice way to make some cash, if you need.
Now, to get to the next town, we must venture through the mountains.
6. Mera Volcano
Items: Flame Fruit x2, Charred Newt x2, Magic Guard, Iron Beak, Speed Source,
Insect Crush, Potion x2, Power Source
Suggested Levels: 6
On the first screen there's nothing, so proceed to the next one. Go up a
little, then go back west. You'll be back on the previous screen, but above.
Cut the grass for a Flame Fruit and a Charred Newt. Go back and north. Go west,
north then east to reach a single grass patch. It hides an Antidote. Now go
north until you see a cave on the right. Inside, go up the vines and then south
to exit. Head north to the next screen.
Here, you will see a wall with 4 vines and a cave entrance. The cave leads to
nowhere, it's the way down. On the wall, you can see some slightly whiter
rocks. These can be climbed just like vines. Vine 1 and 3 lead to nowhere. Vine
2 leads to a cave with a Magic Guard. Vine 4 is the way to go. Climb it up and
enter the cave. Go all the way around until you reach the exit. Here you can
jump down and reach a cave. Enter it. Push any block and continue to reach an
Iron Beak. Go down and then climb up to where you jumped. Climb up and north to
You'll reach a rather smoky area. Go east and up the 3 vines. Cut the grass to
get another Flame Fruit. Go down the vines, east and north to the next screen.
Go north all the way and get to the next screen. Here, the smoke is gone.
Follow the one-way path until you reach 2 skulls. When you get close to them, a
boulder will fall, blocking the way. Now there's no turning back. Go north to
the next screen. Apparently, the bridge is broken. "We cannot use this bridge".
Wow. What a bright girl. Anyway, to continue, cut the grass to the right.
There's a hole slightly hidden by the smoke. Fall in it.
Be careful with the lava, every single step takes 1HP out of you. In the chest
east is an Speed Source. Go north to the next room. Cross the second bridge you
see (the 2x2 one) and enter the room and open the chest to get the Insect
Crush. Return to the previous room and cross the other bridge (the 1x3 one)
then go left to the next room. Here, you will see bridge maze. The goal is to
kill all 3 monsters without stepping twice on the same tile to open the door.
Be careful, as the combats are back attacks, except the last one. From where
you enter the bridge, do this: 2 north, 5 east, 2 south, 2 east, fight, 2 east,
7 north, 2 west, 2 south, 6 east, 5 north, fight, 2 east, 1 north, 2 east,
fight, 2 east, north to the next room. Follow the zigzag path to the top of the
room, go west, then south. Grab the Potion and continue south. Grab the other
Potion and continue to the next room. Here, follow the rock path north. You'll
see 3 jellies. Rubius wants you to kill them. Heal and head toward them.
* Boss: Light Essence x3 *
HP: 100 each
EXP: 500 each
GOLD: 200 each
SUGGESTED LEVELS: 7
These guys can get annoying. They are 3 and they hit from 3 to 7 if you are at
level 7, unless you picked the Bronze Armor. If you get in fully healed, you
should be able to kill the first one before having to heal. They should take
about 4 hits each. Pretty simple fight. Use a potion when needed and attack
continuously and they won't last long.
After the fight, two jellies will vanish, and the other one will flee. A door
will appear. Go through it and through the other. You'll find yourself on the
other side of the bridge. Go south to the next screen. Here, cut the lone grass
patch to reveal a Charred Newt. Continue south and cut the 5 grass patches to
get an Power Source. Head back north and go west. You can go down the wall
between the rock and the skull. Do it and go south to the next screen. Go south
and FINALLY get off that damned mountain.
