Author's Note
Hello guys! It's been a long while since I managed to release a PDF guide. As you know, I've been a fan of JRPGs ever since I started gaming and writing. Tales is a solid series for me so whenever there's a localized version released, I'll be sure to play it. I'll try to cover most of the stuff in the game, especially the main walkthrough and future arc. With the game's immense amount of extras and stuff that I can't handle alone, I have relied on various references and forum posts which really helped a lot in getting this guide going. I'll make sure to give credits to the authors of those references and also include the links of their original posts in the guide and in the credits section of this document. If you're a returning reader that may have seen my work before, thank you for your continued support. If you're a new reader that just stumbled upon this guide, please let me know what you think if you see anything missing or lacking. I'm open to suggestions and as long as I have the time, I'll be accommodating them. Also, take note that I played this game using an ASIAN PS3 console. That said, the Circle and X buttons are interchanged so if you find something something confusing (like pressing Circle to attack with your A-Artes), please take that into consideration and don't flame me for it. Lastly, you can find me on Facebook. My Facebook page is where I post most of the updates and also linked to my Twitter account.

Basics: Menu and Gameplay


Back Artes Menu Here you can view the artes learned by your characters. The character on top of the list will be the one you'll control and his/her artes are automatically set to semi-auto. Here, you can assign up to 4 burst (B) artes to execute by pressing the corresponding directional button and B-arte button. Assault artes are fixed and can be executed by pressing the corresponding directional button and A-arte button. Items Menu You can view all items in your possession in this menu. Items are divided into the following categories:New, Consumables, Food, Materials,Weapons, Armor, Unique Equipments, Gems and Valuables. You can only keep 15 of each Consumable, Food and Material. You can increase the consumable and food limit to 30 by purchasing a Grade Upgrade when starting New Game+. Equip Menu You can manage your characters' weapon, armor, accessory, gem and title here. Take note that not all characters can wear the same type of equipment. Their accessories however, are unique to themselves. Gems are where your status ailment prevention charms go, as well as the dualized gems, extracted from tempered armor and weapons. Status Menu You can view your characters' statuses from this menu. Aside from that, you can also change their costumes here, as long as you have acquired their costume titles and learned the appropriate skill. You can also have your characters wear attachments here. Unfortunately, there are only three attachments in the game. Mixer Menu Please see the Eleth Mixer section for more information. Option Menu You can change various game options here as well changing the game difficulties on the fly. If you feel that the battles are too easy or hard, adjust them accordingly. Take note that higher difficulties yield higher rewards and better drops. You can also set the option to increase the speed of messages and skip scenes. Strategy Menu This is where you can specifically set the behavior and combat strategies of your AI-controlled allies. Titles Menu Characters can learn skills by acquiring titles, equipping them and earning SP. Titles allow your characters to increase their base stats, learn new artes, unlock new costumes, and learn new skills. Learning a skill is permanent so you can swap for another title once you're done. There are also several titles which will teach the same arte. You can learn the new arte from any of them and by learning the same artes, you'll get stacked bonuses to damage, steal probability, healing effect, casting time, etc. SP is earned by winning battles and completing Inn Requests. You can also change the option to have the game automatically equip titles for you, say after reaching a certain rank or after mastering it. This is convenient as you don't have to worry about wasting SP after forgetting to manually swap the titles after mastering one. Titles also have this equipped effect bonus which only active if you have the corresponding title equipped. This is very useful in situations when you need to constantly hit an enemy with its weakness or by further increasing your steal probability. Mastering a title will further boost its effects. Skits These are short, optional conversations between your party members that can be triggered after story scenes,

arriving at savepoints, discovering new discovery points and such. There are also titles related to the number of skits you've viewed so do you best to find them all. World Map You can pull up the world map by pressing R3. Here, you can view the towns, dungeons and field locations you visited. You can also view the equipment and items sold in each town, as well as their inn's active requests. Dungeons and certain field locations also show the enemies you can find there, as well as their drops, uncommon/rare drops and items that can be stolen. This is a very important menu especially when tackling Inn Requests as you'll have access to helpful information. Shuttle Mode Later in the story, you'll eventually obtain the flying transport called Shuttle. This will allow you to fast-travel to any known town or field location. This is very convenient and will practically replace the turtlez transport system. Requests Inn Requests are considered as side quests in the game which will usually request you to find certain items, cook dishes, dualize materials and items with specific qualities. You'll always get an SP bonus as your primary reward along with either gald or new items. Stamp Cards This is the customer loyalty system of the game. Buying, selling or dualizing from the same store will allow you earn stamps. Collecting stamps will increase the store's stamp level and will allow you to buy their items from their secret inventories. Since some materials needed for request items are available only through certain stores and at an appropriate stamp level, it is always a good idea to farm for materials whenever you have the chance, dualize them and sell them. This is the fastest way to earn gald and increase the store's stamp level at the same time. Back

Basics: The Eleth Mixer


Back The Eleth Mixer is a very helpful tool that provides various benefits. It consumes eleth to generate items, cook dishes in battle or post-battle, or activate spellbook effects post-battle. It starts with rather measly amount of eleth but it's capacity is upgraded through cooking dishes. The higher eleth cost of the cooked dish, the faster your capacity grows. There are also spellbooks that will allow you to cook two dishes after battle, boost your mixer capacity growth after cooking dishes, or just by simply equipping it in the mixer. The number of items you can set in the mixer is also limited from the start though you can increase it by continuously generating items. There are spellbooks that will increase your chances to generate items, enable your mixer to generate two items at a time or just by simply equipping it in the mixer. Item Reproduction You can set any (non-valuable, non-unique) items in the Eleth Mixer, even if you don't have a copy of that item. As long as it gets registered to your Books, there's a chance to reproduce it. Take note that generating items depend on their production chance. Higher-grade materials or items often have a lower production chance while the common items have higher chances. Cooking and Cooking Conditions Dishes have various recovery rates and bonuses. Some provide temporary stat bonuses in addition to restoring HP during battle, some increase your tempering rates, some even provide additional EXP, SP and chance to acquire shards after the battle. You can only cook one dish per battle but by equipping a certain spellbook, you can cook up to two dishes.

Spellbook Effects Aside from dishes and items, you can also equip Spellbooks in the mixer. These books provide support effects, like increasing chance to acquire shards, items, exp, sp and many more as discussed above. Unlike dishes, you can have multiple spellbooks equipped and enjoy their stacked effects. Back

Basics: The Library Menu


Back The Library allows you to view the assortment of records you have acquired and discovered. You can use triangle or square to switch between various books. Collector's Book This book keeps track of every item you have acquired. Discovery Book This book keeps track of the discovery point and locations you have visited and discovered. There are 85 discoveries in the game. A majority of them can be found during the main story while some can only be found in the game's Future Arc. User's Guide This book contains all the helpful tips and pointers which you can review later on. This menu also contains the Dualize menu that keeps track of all the Dualizing recipes you have discovered. Back

Basics: Dualizing
Back Dualizing is basically producing a new item by combining two items in your possession. You can dualize items at any items shop, and it's a good idea to do so whenever possible. Combining Combining is a form of dualizing where you combine two materials or one ingredient and a material, to produce a new item. This is a good way to create cashable items which you can sell for profit. Cooking cooking is a form of dualizing where you combine two food ingredient, or one dish and one ingredient. You can make wide range of dishes with helpful effects so it will be a good idea to discover as many dishes as you can to equip to your mixer or to use the dishes as is. Enhancing Enhancing is a form of dualizing where you combine a shard with a piece of equipment that doesn't have a shard yet. Doing so will transfer the effects of that shard to the enhanced equipment. Using the gear in the battle long enough will temper it, thus increasing its effectiveness.

Extracting You can dualize two tempered weapons or armor to extract a Gem from them, which will carry the first two effects of the tempered equipment. This gem can be equipped directly to a character, thereby providing direct bonuses that the enhanced equipment once had. Once extracted, the formerly tempered equipment returns to normal, losing their previous tempered effect bonus and their extracted effects. The good news is that you can enhance the same equipment again, increasing its base stat again. You can do this multiple times to create multiple gems and to enhance your equipment stats considerably. Converting You can also combine a specific material with a piece of equipment, to make an entirely new piece of equipment. Any enhancement the original gear possessed will be partially carried over to the end product. Fusing You can combine two gems to make one containing the most powerful effects of the previous two. Depending on the qualities of the gems, the effects carried over may change. The rank of the new gem may also increase or decrease, depending on the ranks of the gems you have combined. Merging You can combine two charms to produce a charm that has the protective effects of the two. Depending on the effect's strength, you may even regain HP when an attack inflicts the relevant physical ailment. Back

Basics: Battle and Combat


Back Take note that I played this game using an ASIAN PS3 console. That said, the Circle and X buttons are interchanged so if you find something something confusing (like pressing circle to attack with your A-Artes), please take that into consideration and don't flame me for it. Chain Capacity All actions require CC to be performed so higher CC means more actions and longer combos. You can increase your CC by attacking enemies, waiting, moving or guarding. The more hits your attack lands, the more CC you'll be able to use in the current battle. Guarding and evading attacks will also increase your CC. CC Range Your minimum and maximum CC values are initially defined by your equipped weapon. Your CC can be increased further by getting new weapons, getting new gear or enhancing them. Battle Start CC Bonus If you engaged an enemy from behind, you'll start the battle with +1 CC. Make it a habit to attack an enemy from behind as an additional CC for everybody can give considerable advantage to your team. Take note that attacking enemies this way will also also provide you with extra eleth for the battle's eleth gauge, making it easier to enter Eleth Burst mode to further decimate enemies. Attacking You can press circle to approach the enemy and attack with your A-artes. Pressing it consecutively will allow you to perform an attack combo. The number of actions you can make depends on your character's Chain

Capacity. Pressing the X button will allow you to execute B-arte attacks. These attacks can be used in tandem with A-artes for maximum effectiveness. Guarding You can guard against enemy attacks by pressing the square button. Guarding will decrease the amount you take from the enemy's attacks and will protect your from being staggered. You can also activate auras and restore CC at the same time. This will also give you ample time to find an opening and counterattack. Take note that there are some enemy attacks that can't be blocked or can easily crush your guard, leaving you vulnerable for a second or two. Avoid these situations by looking out for the red exclamation point that will appear above the head of the aggressor then quick-step to avoid it. Blue Aura If you continue holding the guard button, a blue light will surround you. While in this state, your critical gauge will increase. Green Aura When you continue guarding while in a Blue Aura, the next aura that will trigger is the Green Aura. Attacking an enemy while in this state will trigger Iron Stance, a short, temporary effect where enemy attacks won't stagger you when launching your artes. Iron Stance is very beneficial to spellcasters. Red Aura When you continue guarding while in a Green Aura, the next aura that will trigger is the Red Aura. Attacking while in this state will allow you to break an enemy's guard and prevent it for attacking. Since charging for a red aura is longer, your CC will most likely be full as well, allowing you to perform combos after breaking through. Changing Targets If you want to change your current target, you can pause the battle by holding R1 and then use left analog to manually select a new target. You can also tap R1 to change to the target closest to you. Changing Characters Use the DPADTo change characters in battle. Their position in the directional pad depends on their positions in the main menu. Charging Artes Some B-Artes require time to change . If you hold X and use L-analog while casting, you can change the arte's target. If you continue to hold X after casting is complete, you'll activate a blue charge, which lets you choose when the arte is unleashed. And with a certain skill, you can activate a red charge, which adds additional attributes to the arte! Quicksteps Guard and use the left analog sticks to perform quick-steps. This is a good way of evading attacks and counterattacking. Backsteps This is a quickstep that will make your character move back. This is a very effective way of dealing horizontal attacks. Forward-Steps If you're being pelted by enemy projectile, you can close the distance without taking too much damage by dashing or forward-stepping. Not all projectiles can be dealt this way so feel free to experiment. A-Artes 101 Assault Artes, or A-Artes, are your basic attack artes, If you press Circle continually, the A-Artes that you use will increase in both class and CC cost, starting from 1CC and increasing to 2 CC, 3CC, and finally 4CC. As you learn new A-artes, the variation can be performed by using the L-analog stick during the combo. The damage you'll deal with A-artes is based on your P. ATK (physical attack) stat.

B-Artes 101 Burst artes are considered as the special attacks or magic attack in the game. The damage is based on your C. ATK (cryas attack) stat. Linked Artes You may have noticed that certain artes are grayed out in the artes list. To activate these linked artes, you must hold Circle while moving through the A-Artes paths in battle. It can be tricky when you need to make split-second decisions on whether or not to use a certain arte, but once you master it, you'll be able to deal more damage and land more hits while effectively maximizing your CC usage. Eleth Gauge During battle, the gauge on the left side of the screen shows the eleth being produced. The blue portion is for your party which increases when you attack, take damage, guard, or evade an attack. The red portion so for the enemies, and works in similar manner. Some enemies though, especially bosses, tend to accumulated eleth faster, thus able to fill their gauges quicker. Eleth Burst Once your eleth gauge is full, it will be released and your party will enter Eleth Burst state which fills your CC and making it unlimited as long as the E.B. mode is active. You can attack without getting interrupted though you can still take damage as normal. Enemies can also enter a similar state like this so be careful. Mystic Artes These are special attacks that can only be performed during an Eleth Burst. These are learned by acquiring appropriate titles. While in Eleth Burst, you'll see a Mystic Arte Gauge in the left side of the screen. You can fill the gauge by performing combos and using artes with high usage count. Press L1 during an Eleth Burst to trigger a mystic arte. Characters can learn up to 3 mystic arte levels and the gauge can be filled up to LV3. Simply speaking, a LV2 gauge will only allow you to trigger LV2 mystic artes and so on. Eleth Breaks This is the enemy's counterpart for Eleth Burst. In this mode, you won't be able to stagger enemies and will allow boss enemies to use their own Mystic Artes and other special attacks. The Nova Barrier Enemies with the Nova attribute have the ability to create a Nova Barrier that reduces all damage to 1. To destroy these barriers, you have to attack with your own artes with the Nova attribute. Later in the game and as part of the story, you'll be able to obtain a title for everybody which will enable any arte to break Nova barriers. Back

Basics: Shards and Qualities


Back When dualizing equipment with shards, the increase in stats is based on the qualities of the gear. Rarer qualities tend to have higher stat increases, though there are qualities with other benefits, such as ones that allow you to sell the dualized piece for a higher price. You can increase the rank of a quality by dualizing. One thing you might notice is that if you dualize two fiveletter qualities, for example it usually leads to a six-letter quality. If you combine a five-letter quality to a 4letter quality, most of the time the lower quality is ignored and the five-letter quality remains the same. This methodology is very useful when producing specific equipment needed for inn requests.

For more helpful information about qualities, I'll refer you to the links below: http://tales.namco.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=3358741&sid=d96a1bbecb721a8c51e9a82d23cfd15d http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/604158-tales-of-graces-f/62417923 Back

Basics: Status Ailments


Back Status ailments can be annoying and will endanger your party's survival if left untreated. Use Panacea Bottles to get rid of them or use recovery artes to do the trick. Equipping charms will also help though you may want to stick with your gems in general battles unless a specific location is dreaded by status-ailment-inflicting enemies. Poison HP will continue to decrease while the ailment is active. If left untreated, the affected character's HP is reduced to 1. Paralysis There is a chance that you'll get stunned each time you perform an action. This is rather annoying especially to healers as their recovery and healing artes may get interrupted. Freeze A frozen character will be rendered immobile. An enemy hit can break the ice but the damage will be extensive, sometimes enough to kill in one shot. Burn This ailment increases the length of time you're staggered when you take damage and will prevent HP recovery. Petrify This will render your character immobile as well but the main difference with Freeze is that your character will remain petrified when attacked, as well as taking damage continuously. Slow This ailment slows down your movement, CC recovery rate and prevent your from using quicksteps. Arteseal This prevents you from using A or B artes, making your character a deadweight or meatshield for a short time. Curse This will cause random effects such as instant KO's or getting walloped. Weak This will decrease all your stats. Though not as annoying as the other ailments, you have to take care of it quickly. Back

Basics: Accel Mode


Back This mode is unlocked as part of the story in the Lineage and Legacies (Future Arc) portion of the game. You can activate Accel Mode by pressing R2 once the Accel gauge is 50% full. Aside from the common effects shared by all characters in the party while this mode is active, each character also has his/her own unique abilities that can restore CC, increase combos or even stop time. If a character faints in battle, a substantial amount of his/her Accel gauge is reduced so it will be a good idea to keep everybody healed, especially if you're aiming to trigger Accel Mode as often as possible and increase your Accel Finality's (LV4 Mystic Arte) usage. There are some equipment that can provide Accel-related benefits. Some can help boost the Accel gauge recharge rate or even the duration of Accel mode. You can even dualize and temper these equipment then extract them to gems. You can later further enhance the effects by dualizing them or by polishing them. Accel Finalities If you activate Accel Mode at 100% gauge, you can press L1 to perform an Accel Finality. This is a unique mystic arte that can only be triggered in this mode. These Finalities increase in damage as you use them often. Since building your gauge to 100% takes time, set your strategy to use Accel Mode only at 100% gauge. Accel Mode Mastery When you activate Accel Mode, you'll be invulnerable for about one second, as well as cured of any physical ailment you may have. You can trigger it even while taking damage, making it a real lifesaver when you're about to be knocked out. Back

Characters
Back

Asbel Lhant

Age: 11 (child) , 18 (adult) Weight: 65 kg / 143 lbs Height: 175 cm / 5'9" Weapon: Sword Asbel is one of the main melee combatants in the party. He's a well-balanced swordsman with combos and moves that has effective crowd-control and deal considerable damage per combo to a single target. His assault artes are quick, but have a shorter range. In case you're surrounded during a combo, press X to draw your sword and Asbel will perform a wide slash will hit any nearby enemies. Since burst artes use Cryas Attack power (C.ATK) to attack, so they can be more effective than A-Artes against foes that possess high Physical Defense (P. DEF). Remember that you're a sitting duck while sheathing your sword. One option is to sheathe the sword as soon as you defeat an enemy, while another is to backstep before putting the weapon away. When Asbel draws his sword, he enters the Iron Stance state. However, he's limited in the number of hits he can absorb in this state. You can restart the counter by sheathing and drawing his sword. Accel Mode: Spiral Surge Enemies can be staggered even if they're downed A surge of flames surround Asbel, damaging enemies and provides added protection Enemies are launched in the air when struck

Sophie

Weight: 39 kg / 86 lbs Height: 148 cm / 4'10" Weapon: Bracers, Gauntlets

Sophie is a powerful, close-range fighter with devastating combos and attacks but with meager crowd control abilities. She has the ability to charge her attacks to deal massive damage when released and when it connects to the target. Sophie can also act as a backup healer since she has both average recovery and revival artes. While Sophie's range tends to be short, she can still land multiple quick attacks in a short period of time. Since most enemies will tend to hit her upfront before she can move within attack range, Sophie can deliver her brutal punishment by attacking enemies from the rear and from the sides. Accel Mode: EX Boost CC recovery rate is increased Continuous HP recovery Forward-steps will allow her to spin around the enemy and attack it from behind

Hubert Ozwell

Age: 10 (child), 17 (adult) Weight: 62 kg / 137 lbs Height: 171 cm / 5'7" Weapon: Dualblades Hubert can attack enemies up close, in mid-range or long-range, thanks to his dualblade and dual pistols. He can effectively change from A to B artes effectively and even link their attacks to deal more damage. He can also provide basic healing and recovery artes as well. Hubert can use short-range dualblade artes with circle, and long-range twinshot artes with X. His dualblade's critical gauge fills slowly and since his defense and HP stats aren't that high, you need to strike quickly and with perfect balance to avoid getting surrounded completely.

When trying to build a large combo, it's better to use Hubert's 2 CC A-Artes before switching to the B-Artes. If the target moves out of range, don't fret. Hubert's specialty is to continuously attack his attack at any range. Hubert is often vulnerable after using his artes. That said, save some CC after attacking so you can perform a quick-step if necessary. This will allow you to avoid attacks then counterattack immediately. Accel Mode: Arrow Squall Hubert calls upon a rain of arrows that will last until his Accel Gauge is depleted. He can still move around while the arrows fall, allowing him to build combos faster and land more hits in a short span of time.

Cheria Barnes

Age: 11 (child), 18 (adult) Weight: 47 kg / 104 lbs Height: 160 cm / 5'3" Weapon: Daggers Cheria is the main healer of the party. Her wide selecting of healing, revival, recovery and support artes ensures the survival of the party, especially during boss fights. She can defend herself using long-range attacks with her daggers and she possesses good, AoE burst artes as well. Cheria is a master of wide-range healing artes but these artes have a high CC cost. Whenever there's a chance and if you're controlling her, have her join the fray for a bit and land a few dagger hits to replenish her CC supply. Cheria can also learn the Effect expansion skill, which increases the area of effect of her recovery artes. Use her artes frequently to gain titles and keep learning those expansion skills! Support artes like Insight have the added effect in raising the target character's critical gauge growth rate. After stunning a foe with a critical hit, use those second to attack with low-level A-Artes and restore CC. Accel Mode: Temporal Rift Cheria freezes time until her accel gauge runs out. This is a very helpful skill as it is enough to buy time to perform much needed healing, revival or just simply build combos and perform a Finality.

Malik Caesars

Age: 40 Weight: 76 kg / 168 lbs Height: 186 cm / 6'1" Weapon: Bladerang At first glance, you can easily mistake Malik to be a melee character. His signature weapon, the bladerang is a long-range weapon that can be thrown to foes. He's also a very potent offensive spellcaster and very effective crowd-control artes even at long distances. His strength lies in attacking with his bladerang and casting a spell while the weapon is in mid-flight. However, he's not much good when surrounded by hordes of enemies. Effectively controlling Malik may be a bit challenging for starters. You must master his positioning while his bladerang is in the air. You may need to cancel a combo or follow an A-Arte with a B-Arte to eliminate openings for the enemy when the bladerang comes back. It's also possible for Malik to follow up a B-Arte with an A-Arte. It's also possible to attack the moment the weapon returns to Malik's hand. Quick-step to shorten the pause that occurs when he catches the weapon, then press Circle to immediately throw it again. Accel Mode: Harsh Lesson Malik unleashes a flurry of kicks followed by a punch until his gauge is depleted. It's useful to use if an enemy is approaching you while casting or if you want to land a finishing blow to a critically injured enemy. While casting, entering Accel Mode will cause the arte to launch instantly.

Pascal

Age: 22 Weight: 45 kg / 99 lbs Height: 155 cm / 5'1" Weapon: Shotstaff Pascal is another offensive spellcaster in the party, capable of unleashing very effective offensive spells. The only problem is that most of Pascal's Burst artes are short-ranged with medium-large area of effect. This makes her vulnerable against enemy attacks and interruption. However, Pascal's shotstaff allows her to safely deal physical damage at long range since it acts as a rifle. With long-distance A-Artes, and B-Artes that form cryas glyphs around her, Pascal's fighting style is considered as a high risk, high reward one. However, her artes are among the most powerful in the game so just move in, cast and pray that the enemies don't target her while casting. Once Pascal has learned a particular skill, you can press and hold X while casting an arte to initiate a blue charge. While in this state, press Circle to use a high-rank arte in place of the original one. It can be quite useful as the casting time for the new arte will be decreased by the amount if time spent casting the old one. One useful strategy for Pascal is to unleash a long-range shotstaff arte, then forward-Steps toward the enemy and fire off a glyph arte. Keep in mind that quick-stepping during an attack can increase the amount of time an enemy is staggered (not just for Pascal; this applies to everybody else as well) so try and use this to your advantage Accel Mode: Runic Shield Any party member inside the range of Pascal's cryas glyphs can guard against all attacks while making their own attacks unblockable.

Richard

Age: 12 (child) / 19 (adult) Weight: 67 kg / 148 lbs Height: 178 cm / 5'10" Weapon: Rapier Richard can only be played as party member in the Future Arc (Lineage and Legacies) portion of the game. He uses a Rapier as his choice of weapon and he can deliver fast, deadly attacks with average crowd control. He also has a good balance of thrust assault artes and darkness-based burst artes. Accel Mode: Arcane Vigor While in Accel Mode, the casting time for all Richard's B-Artes are reduced by half. He also recovers CC after each attack, opening up various combo possibilities. Back

Walkthrough: Childhood Arc (Chapter 1)


Back You'll start the game with the young Asbel and Hubert in your party. You can check the menus if you want. If you need further clarifications, you can consult this guide's Basics section. Start by moving forth and check the chest to the left for Apple Gel x3. Continue along the path and you'll find a well nearby. Approach it for a skit (Wellspring of Deceit) You can also examine the wellspring to fully recover your HP.

Continue to the right to find another chest containing a Glassphere. Go up the path to find a savepoint. There's a chest hidden behind a bush to its right containing a Life Bottle. Save the game then continue up to the next area for a scene.

Once in control, leave the meadow and save your game. You'll also have the chance to trigger a skit (Rebel without a Cause). Leave the area when you're ready. North Lhant Highroad You have to return to Lhant by heading east. (Press L1 to display the markers). Lhant is just a few steps to the east but before going there, head west a bit and check out the shining object on the grass along the road past the guards. You'll find similar shining objects along the roads and picking them up yields random items, even Carta Cards. (These are used in a mini-game later in the game) There's another Glassphere inside the chest further up the road. That's all you can do for now since the path further ahead is blocked. Backtrack a bit then continue heading east to reach Lhant. You'll finally see a savepoint just outside the town. Go there to trigger a skit (Seek the Sparkles). Enter the town when ready.

Lhant You need to head to the manor after the scenes. Before going there, you can do a few stuff in town first. Start by entering the house near the windmill. Talk to the old woman to get a Pickled Plum, talk to the dog to get an Apple Gel then examine the closet under the stairs to get Pork x2.

Exit the house then cross the bridge to the south to trigger a skit (Poor Choice of Words). Talk to the guard in the northeastern road after crossing the bridge. He'll give a quiz to you. The answers are Wolf Pup, Wooly Boar and Giant Bee. You'll receive 100 gald for getting the questions right. You can purchase a Manual Manual key item from the item shop for 500g which will enable you to set your battle actions to Manual.

Once done, head to the manor to continue with the story. After that, enter the manor and go to the savepoint for a skit. (Family Ties) Save your game then head to the second floor bedroom to the right. There's a skit there as well (Rash Justice) and you can find an Enemy Book by checking the messy table to the far right of the room.

Talk to the townspeople to learn more about the foreigner staying in the cottage in West Lhant Hill. Backtrack to the guard who gave you the quiz earlier for a scene.

Upon reaching the cottage, talk to the soldiers again to receive various recovery items. A skit will become available as well. (Going Commando?) After talking to the soldiers, head to the savepoint for another skit (A Seven-Year Blur) Continue to the Barona Catacombs next. Barona Catacombs Backtrack till you get out of the stone door. Continue forth deeper in the dungeon. Grab the Book of Perfection from the chest on the broken bridge. Continue forth and take the lower path to get Cored Dust and Mysterious Liquid. Backtrack to the main path and pick up the Panacea Bottle x2 along the way. Continue until you reach another split in the path. Take the upper path to find another stone door and find a chest with 240 eleth units in the far right. The second stone door is nothing of interest except that its leading to the same corridor.

Before reaching the next savepoint outside the castle's secret entrance, there's another stone door to the right that you can push open. Enter it to find new discovery inside and play a new skit. (No. 28 Graves of the Unsung) (Burial Plans). Grab the gald from the chest nearby. Continue to the castle once done.

Barona Castle Secret Passage Richard will join the party as a reserve after the scene. Climb the stairs up north to get Peach Gel x2 in the next room. Return to the starting point then continue to the right. Remove the block away and continue moving the blocks to create walkways as you move from floor to floor. Take the stairs north to find a Mastery Tonic C. Backtrack then head left to find a new discovery there and play a new skit. (No. 29 Twin Vases). (Separate Worlds)

Proceed to the left further to find a savepoint. Head south of it first then arrange the blocks, then go south to find a Wriggler Crystal. Go back to the previous room then continue north again. Head left and arrange the blocks again to find Book of Suppression. Backtrack to the savepoint and enter the castle interior. Barona Castle Interior There's a turtlez merchant here so restock, dualize or sell items if you need to. Start by going to the right then go north up the corridor. At the end, enter the room to the left to find a chest with Life Bottle x3. (The blocked path to the left will be unlocked later.) Backtrack a bit then take the bottom right path this time. Continue to the right until you reach a corridor going south. Go down then take the corridor to the right again to find a Rune Tunic. Proceed to the far left this time to find a savepoint. Check the painting on the wall north of the savepoint for a new discovery and skit. (No. 30 First Flag) Continue to the left and defeat two more enemy groups. Heal up then approach Major Victoria up ahead.

Boss: Victoria This is a bit challenging battle especially that she can initiate eleth breaks frequently and perform Mystic Artes as well. It is a good idea to change Cheria's strategy to heal frequently, as Victoria hits hard per strike and can land quick, devastating blows in a combo. Her spear also gives her a wide-arc of attack, capable of hitting multiple characters in front of her. Sophie can provide backup healing but she can be more efficient offensively in this battle. Keep Cheria away from battle as her party-based healing artes take a while to cast.

After defeating Victoria, return to the save point, heal up and save your game. Go past Victoria and head right to find the same turtlez merchant earlier if you need his services. Otherwise, continue to the left this time and follow the corridor. Enter the third room to find 315 eleth units. Continue further to the left and you'll find another save point. Go near it for a skit. (Slay the Usurper) Prepare your party, save the game then continue upstairs. Boss: Cedric Cedric's attacks are a combination of fire and lightning which can occasionally cause paralysis or burn status ailments. He prefers close range combat since his attacks have a wide arc and can damage multiple characters at once. Like the previous battle, set Cheria to heal as often as possible (somebody's health goes below 50%) Cedric has a bad habit of targeting Cheria often and interrupt her healing so do your best to attack him and get his attention. Provide backup healing with Sophie and with some consumables as necessary. Sophie's fast combos and Pascal's damaging mid-ranged spells will really help in keeping Cedric's attention off Cheria. Avoid attacking him head on; if a character is already engaged in front of him, quickstep and attack to the rear to avoid getting splash-damaged. Be careful also when this boss goes on eleth break as he can also execute a devastating Mystic Arte.

After the scene, go to the throne room then return to your team members after talking to Richard. Malik will also join the party at this point. He will also gain his Prisoner of War and Dismissed Captain titles. To exit the castle, return to the throne room entrance. Go near the save point for a skit (A Touching Moment) Head to the Inn first to find new requests. Approach the savepoint for another skit as well. (Eye to Eye) You can now head to the port and travel back to Lhant. Lhant Enter the town through the canal. Head to the manor and save your game. Head to the study next then go outside after the conversation. You'll be facing Richard afterward. Boss: Richard Richard will raise his Nova Barrier so immediately use nova-based artes to nullify it. Keep him away from Sophie as she will do a great job in keeping the party alive, especially if her healing artes are upgraded at this point. Though Hubert can also provide backup healing, I suggest keeping him in the offensive most of the time as the balance in dealing damage is practically affected. Don't forget to manually use items as well as necessary. Richard has a variety of mid-level, AOE attacks so it will be a good idea to evade often and try to attack him from the side or rear, to prevent unnecessary damage and to earn CC at the same time. Furthermore, be careful when Richard goes on eleth break as he will surely follow up with a devastating Mystic Arte.

It is a mini-game where you need to select the correct card where the recited quote came from before your opponent does. Since the cards used in the game depends on the Carta cards in your possession, it will be worth reviewing the carta cards you have. If you managed to win without letting the Carter score, you'll win an item and additional titles per difficulty level. The difficulty will increase as your card collection increases. For now, you can win Asbel's Dark Enforcer title with a flawless victory (easy difficulty).

Cross the bridge to the left and you'll find a password-protected chest up the ramp in the other side. Use the password rockgagong to obtain the Book of Restraint. Continue in front of the research tower for a scene. Go to the savepoint afterward for a skit (The Spice of Life) Talk to the kid to the right of the savepoint to obtain Magic Carta No. 16 and 19 cards.

Examine it for a new discovery and skit. (No. 35 Golden Smile) (T.M.I)

Backtrack then head towards the house in the center. Go to the nearby savepoint for another skit (That House Over There) and a chest with two Life Bottles. Go past that chest to find a thin strip of land leading to another chest with a Fangtear Crystal. After getting the nearby loots, enter the house and search the left side for the Rockgagong Flute. After the conversation, a turtlez merchant will be available to the right and will offer inn and shop services. Hop on the stones northwest of the house to get to the next dry land.

Simply use quicksteps to stagger it with critical hits and combos.

You'll be thrown outside after the battle. From hereon, you can summon the Rockgagong to enter the dungeon again or to challenge it.

(Drawn Together) Finally, you'll receive an ID Card after talking to the president. Exit the room to regroup with your team. Leave through the west gate when ready. Strahta Desert West There's a skit by the savepoint(No Sweat). The path here is straightforward so you don't have to worry about getting lost. Start by following the walls north and you'll find a chest to the far left containing some gald. After getting this chest, continue head west while following the wall to find a Silver Scabbard beside the cactus. Continue along until you find a turtlez and some weild looking statues. Check those out for a new discovery and skit. (No. 40 Sand People) (No Words) Move along until you reach a savepoint. Keep heading south to find an Orange Ribbon.

Continue forth and once you reach a split in the path, follow the upper one. Grab the Stone Charm beside a pillar. Head down (southeast) to find a Bluster Crystal beside the sand wall.

Approach the savepoint for a skit (Scene Stealer) then save your game. Head to the valkines to proceed with the story.

Boss: Dispater x2 It will be a challenge for some of your fighter's combos to hit or connect since these enemies are flying. Compensate by using Attack and Burst artes in tandem, especially if this will stop them on their tracks. These two enemies are also notorious for primarily targeting your healers and spellcasters. Concentrate on one target for the first few minutes of the battle. Setting your strategy to have your teammates attack the leader's target will make it easier for you to focus your attack on one target at a time. Later in the battle, they'll be using a very wide AOE attack, as well as some mid-range, mediumsized AOEs. Your healer(s) will be smart enough to move away from danger but you still need to prioritize keeping them alive using recovery items. If Cheria's healing artes are upgraded and she has the benefits of having healing-boosting gems and equipment, then you won't have that much trouble keeping the team afloat throughout the entire battle.

Sophie will earn the Independent Thinker title after the scene. Before leaving, check the valkines for a new discovery and skit. (No. 42 Duplemar) (Pitch Black) Now backtrack to the savepoint, then turn left first and back to the previously inaccessible chests inside the ruins.

Walkthrough: Adult Arc 4 (Chapter 5)


Back Yu Liberte Report to the president and Hubert will finally join the party. He'll also get his Dutiful Brother title afterward.

(Refer to the Cherished Locket request in this guide's Inn Requests section) Head to the commercial district and find another woman with an emoticon. Talk to her to open up another official request.

While in the inn when checking/ completing requests, make sure to check the saveopint for a skit (Twenty Minutes) You're pretty much free to roam for now so you can also visit Gralesyde and Barona to complete some requests. If you missed any discoveries, you can also backtrack and check them out. However, some skits associated with their initial discovery and your current party at that time may not be available anymore. Start by sailing back to Lhant. Lhant Take note that this is a missable sidequest. You must complete this before visiting the last dungeon (Ghardia Shaft) for the first time.

From there, exit north and keep talking to the guard until he leaves. Find the child behind him. Enter the Perimeter Tower NW B1 behind the last child and you should find the last kid behind the large barrel (Discovery No.27 300 Year-Old Barrel)

Yu Liberte After the scene with the three weird siblings back in Sable Izolle, you can find them inside the inn. You'll obtain a Battle Sword after this event. When ready, exit using Yu Liberte's north gate.

Strahta Desert North Check the left side of the desert to find some gald between two cacti. Proceed north to find a well. Check it out it for a new discovery and skit. (No.43 Dried-Up Well) (Fight Me, Brother). You can also gather Truth Salts from here. The skit will require you to fight Hubert. If you get defeated, you can challenge him over and over again until you manage to defeat him. After the skits, Hubert will get his Restorer of Pride and Sophie's Gossip Lover titles. Grab the Moon Anklet behind the well then continue heading east until you find the Silver Frames from the chest near the edge south. Continue forth until you reach a savepoint. Touch it for another skit. (Furtive Glances)

North Yu Liberte Port Just before you sail off and begin your journey into Fendel, enter the cottage to the left to claim a White Wine. After that, head for the boat for a bit of dialogue. There will be a skit at the save point: Piercing Glances. Save then go ahead and leave for Warriors Roost. Warriors Roost Watch the events and run up next to the save point for a skit: Observing the Observer. The nearby treasure chest houses Magic Carta 35. On the floor some ways to the right is a Dapne Seed, while the chest next to it has a Red Wine. Take the time to feed the cat by the steps as well before you proceed upstairs. Near the feline is a discovery book entry: Annals of Victory which in turn unlocks the Knight Moves skit. You can also clear some quests at the inn if you want.

Otherwise, go on up and register at the counter to proceed. The locked chest (password: riot peak) contains a Book of Metabolism. For the Riot Peak Challenge, fight past the monsters in the first 4 floors before finally facing off with the Fendelian Soldiers from earlier at Floor 5. Shouldnt be too hard; theyre all talk anyways.

More scenes follow, after which Hubert acquires the Youngest Lieutenant title. Go back downstairs to the save point now for another skit: En Guardian, then talk to the spy lady and sail to South Velanik Port. South Velanik Port As with all the other Ports youve been through so far, enter the cottage to find some loot; the one here houses Crab (x2) by the way. Moving on to the next area. Fendel Borderlands Just a bit of a heads up the monsters in this part of the world are pretty strong and are capable of wiping out your party real quick if youre not careful, especially if youre playing on a high difficulty setting. So try to have melee characters defend and evade more while the mages hang back and toss offensive Burst Artes. That said, collect a Fancy Fur from the first chest and examine the tree further ahead to record the Peach Tree discovery and view the skit: Just Peachy.

Move along eastward and keep an eye out for sparkles on the ground where Magic Carta 12 randomly appears. Once the path finally splits, head right first for an Anonymous Seed; further down from there is another chest with a Seascale Crystal. Follow this road down to the fortress for a skit: Border Crossing. Return to the fork now and go the other way for a scene. After the scene, get near the crater to trigger a skit. (Just another Coinkydink) then push on until you see a slope off to the left. Climb it to reach a treasure chest and collect 2520 Gald. Further up the path is a Green Ribbon. Continue towards Velanik afterward.

Velanik After the brief dialog, head into the village; theres a chest by the entrance containing Magic Carta 36. Stop by the save point at the inn for a skit: Misery Loves Company. You'll also find the weird siblings again. Talk to them to trigger an event and obtain Battle Knives afterward. Sleep in the inn as well for a bonus event.

Next go backstage, open the crate for a Best Princess Stories book, while the locked treasure chest (password: strahteme) houses the Book of Deduction. Collect the Niferum Seed off the floor then check the nearby document to record Kaigars Script in your discovery book. This unlocks the Bananas for Bananas skit. That should be all for this building so you can leave now.

Back outside, head for the house to the southeast and check the dresser for a Milk. The treasure chest contains a Baby Bush Plushie. Make sure to feed the cat here some fish before exiting through the houses backdoor. Once outside, collect the Spoon from the treasure chest and youll find your path blocked off by a boy. Pay him 1000 Gald and hell disappear so go look at the well to get your money back. Now, return to the house and talk to Connor again to trigger a side quest.

Side Quest Pipsqueak Shakedown The kid may seem like a scammer, asking for more and more gald each time you talk to him he starts with 200 and doubles the price before finally closing at 6,400. There is obviously a point in all this so keep giving him money until he quits. Cheria acquires the Good Samaritan title after this. With that done, leave through the front door and enter the other house to the southwest. Loot a Veggie Set from the dresser. Leave, then go east for a scene after which Cheria receives the Kind-Hearted title. Head to the inn for the next set of events, then stop by the save point come morning for a skit: WhoKnows-What. Also, you might want to have a look at the available requests; you should be able to clear most of them now so go ahead and do that. Proceed to the mountains up north afterward.

Fendel Mountain Pass Move along until you hit a fork, go right to claim a Platinum Tunic and Dark Bottle (x2). Turn around, push north and enter the building to find Suspicious Powder (x2). View a skit (The Cold, Hard Truth) by the save point then proceed. At the intersection, head down first to collect Syrup Bottle (x2) and a Leafy Balm for Malik. Go back and up, record the Frozen Tree discovery. This unlocks the skit: What Lies Ahead. Theres a chest with 3240 Gald behind the tree as well, and another with Grape Gel (x2) to the right. Magic Carta 13 may also appear as a random sparkly spot in this area too.

Fendel Highlands For starters, talk to the man with an event bubble on his head. This unlocks the Rockgagong Fur request at Zavherts inn. Follow the path, collect a Weak Charm and a Gold Scabbard for Asbel along the way. Once the path splits, go up to secure the Cabbages discovery, plus the High-Risk Highland skit. Magic Carta 14 may appear as a random sparkle in this area as well. Continue southwest from the cabbage patch to find a chest with 2880 Gald before turning around west to a save point and a skit: False Pretenses. Onward to port where you can take a ship to Fendels capital.

Port to Zavhert Near the port, you'll find some Salmon behind the tree to the right. Head to the savepoint for a scene. If you have cooked Crablettes (Crab + Eggs), then you'll be able to view a new skit by the savepoint. (National Crablette Day)

Enter the cottage to find Pie Sheet (x3) before going any further down the path into Zavhert. Zavhert Watch the events then go a tad bit further into town for the next one. After that, youll have to speak to some not so happy people. But first, drop by the inn for a pair of skits: No More Suffering and A Surprising Theory. You might also want to look at the available requests and complete what you can. Enter the room to the far left to find a locked chest (password: ironspike) containing a Book of Finesse. If you encountered Fiery Joe and his siblings in Velanik (take note that this is part of the series of encounters), you'll find him in the same room as well. Talk to him for a sub-event and for Hubert to earn his Senior Younger Brother title. Check the trash bin beside the innkeeper to throw the trash there. These trash are collected randomly by picking up the shining objects along the way. Once you have thrown a total of 15 trash, a subevent will be completed and Malik will earn his Environmental Minister title.

Next, check the right room upstairs for some Bloody Rose Seeds, while the dresser next to the bed has Rice (x2). Leave the inn now and go south down some stairs. Youll find a kid here that sells a Katz Plushie for 10 Gald; this is needed for a side quest within the city so buy it now. Side Quest The Sick Child Enter the house south of where the plushie seller is. Theres an ill child here that you can give the stuffed toys to. In total, there are 9 plushies for you to give her -- 6 of which can be collected from treasure chests and 3 that you need to dualize yourself. Check the Side Quests section for additional details. Sophie receives the Lara Bestie title after this.

Back outside, continue further west and up the stairs of the next house to claim Magic Carta 37. Just past this off to the left is the Bottomless Pipe discovery and a skit: Piping Up.

Continue towards the house at the end and open the small box inside for Crab (x2). Dont forget to feed the cat too. Finally, check the doll display in the bedroom to record the Doll-Within-A-Doll discovery; this unlocks The Dubious Man skit.

Exit and go west some more, talk to the not so happy soldier, then go up the stairs into yet another house to the right. Open the drawer by the bed for a Best Princess Stories book.

The next person you need to speak to is outside the inn while the third one is at the equipment shop. Watch the events, Pascal gains the Real Amarcian title. You can head back to the inn real quick to trigger a skit (All in the Timing) Follow the street west then exit the city. Well youre a fugitive now so flee west, engage enemies you come into contact with, and youll eventually find yourself at Mt. Zavhert. Mount Zavhert Move along while keeping an eye out at the bottom side of the path for Life Bottle (x2). When the path forks, go left then southwest to a fake treasure chest and a side quest. Side Quest A Natural Mimic Try to open the fake treasure chest then defeat it. Pascal acquires the Fire Summoner title soon after. Plus youll also get the Raw Materials request item.

Turn around back to the closest fork and go up. Record the Radishes discovery; this unlocks the Dear Diary skit as well. Proceed further west to reach a chest with 495 Eleth Units. The building up ahead is Fendels research lab, which obviously isnt where youre supposed to go but approach the save point anyways for a skit: Gone Astray. With that one out of the way, backtrack to the sign post and go up this time. Move along for Grape Gel (x2). At the intersection, go east, collect a Fine Wood from the chest then keep heading right to another treasure chest containing a pair of Gold Frames for Hubert.

Turn back and head north now. A new skit (Winds of Change) awaits at the save point. When you come across yet another fork in the road, go west and around to add Pumpkins to your discovery book and you also get to view a skit: Short and Sweet. Just above the pumpkin patch is a chest housing a Pretty Feather. Next, follow the path to the end along the left side for a Blue Scarf.

Go around to the lower path, following it east, up, and left for 3670 Gald. Magic Carta 15 may also appear as a random sparkle on this mountain so do collect those shiny things. Anyway, turn around east afterward for a scene, after which youll have to fight and defeat a Bladehorn Boar. Boss: Bladehorn Boar This monster will call in reinforcements every now and then. Take these minor annoyances first since they can still interrupt your casting and combos. Keep pummeling the boar until its life becomes critical. At this stage, it will start to burrow and spring up from the ground. When it burrows, keep your guard up and wait for it to appear beneath you then launch a counterattack. It will also keep charging back and forth, mowing anyone in the way regardless if they're guarding or not. When it does this, don't chase it; just sidestep then attack it from the rear.

Once defeated, collect the Formless Crystal and continue to the Amarcian Enclave. Amarcian Enclave Before you go to Pascals house, stop by the inn first and to get there, head left to the top of the stairs. Add the Chocolate Fountain to your discovery book and a new skit: Fountains of the World, Part II. At the save point is another skit: The Transplanted Land. Also, check the inns requests to see what you can complete. If you have encountered Fire Joe and his siblings back in Zavhert (and from the other locations as well), you can find them to the left of the inn. Talk to them for a scene and to receive a Mandarin Scarf.

Head back down and talk to the man with an event bubble for a side quest. Side Quest Shot Cube At the bottom of the stairs leading to the inn, is a man with an event bubble on his head. Talk to him to play the Shot Cube mini game. Your goal here is to push all the cubes to the middle of the play area without a single one sliding off the ice. There are 12 stages in all 3 for each rank. You will receive weapons for Pascal upon clearing a rank. The final reward is a Rare Shotstaff and a Winners Trophy, which is needed for an inn request much later in the game. Clear the first 2 ranks and youll also get the Puzzle Cracker title for Pascal.

Once youre ready to proceed with the story, head to the far right side of the enclave and enter Fouriers house first. Inside is a locked treasure chest (password: gauss) containing a Book of Acquisition then check the console at top-center of the room for a Drill request item.

Leave and feed the cat outside before heading into Pascals house. Here, the top-center section has some Milk and the treasure chest has Magic Carta 38. Lastly, examine the robotic dog to the right of the room to record the Robo-Pet discovery and view a new skit: Anything You Like! Now, head for the center of the enclave and go down the stairs to the north. The lift at the bottom takes you to your next stop. Once the scenes are over, collect the Jack-in-the Pulpit Seeds on the floor. Before you head back to the mountains, there is another side quest here that you can do first. Side Quest Sibling Envy As you leave the Overseers Chamber, there will be a young man with an event bubble by the stairs. Talk to him then go to Pascals House for a scene, after which youll get the Only Child title for Cheria along with the Research Sample request item.

Give that sample up at the inn for your reward then approach the save point for a skit: Whence and Whither. At Mount Zavhert, trace your steps back to the main intersection (the one with wooden sign post), and go the opposite direction towards the Research Laboratory. Also at one of the save points along the way, is a skit: A Ladys Prerogative. Fendel Research Laboratory In the entrance, you'll be able to play a skit: Sins of the Brother. (1F) Once inside the lab, head left and enter the first room that you see to retrieve a Working Gear, leave and go further left into the next room. Here, push the cube into place to restore power for the nearby switch and active it to open the gate outside. Take the elevator down to B1.

(B1) On this floor, go left again, enter the first room and collect Grape Gel (x3) from the chest inside. Off to the room next door is more loot; the chest has Panacea Bottle (x2) this time. Leave and continue along the corridor until you encounter another locked gate. Go into the nearby room and move the blocks to their proper spots then activate the switch to proceed. Continue down to B2.

(B2) Behind the very first door on this floor is a Star Anklet and the No. 55 Eleth Recharger discovery, which unlocks the A Fundamental Flaw skit. In the next room to the right is an All Divide. Back on the corridor, follow it to a fork and go right. In the room at the end is a Platinum Scabbard for Asbel. Equip that now to view a skit: Accessorizing with Asbel.

Return to the intersection and go down this time. At the end of the corridor is another switch room. Fix up the blocks and use the panel like before to continue down to B3.

(B3) Here we have a fork go northeast first to a room with an Orange Scarf then head back to the intersection, going southeast this time and take the elevator down to B4. (B4) Enter the switch room here and activate the panel to open the gate. At the fork, head right to lift that will take you to a different section of B3. The room to the left has a chest with 525 Eleth Units while the one to the right houses the No.56 Profane Creation discovery, plus a skit: The Island of Dr. Fourier.

Take the elevator back to B4, enter the room to the right for Holy Bottle (x2). Back at the corridor, go up then right. Collect a Busted Blade from the chest before heading back to the previous area, and take the northern elevator down to B5. (B5) Save and enter the room where youll face one of Fourier's creations. Boss: Veres This boss hits hard and can perform different close and/or mid-range attacks that can stun your characters. Try to sidestep right before its attack connects so you can gain CC at the same time enable you to freely counterattack. Be careful since once it sets its sights to one of your characters, as it will continuously attack him/her, specially right after stunning him/her. Aside from that, it will occasionally call out for reinforcements in the form of normal enemies you have fought inside the facility so far. Take out the minions to prevent them from hindering your combos and spells.

After defeating it, you'll get the Elevator Key. Watch the events then approach the lift for a skit: Irrelevant Nonsense. Check the panel here to open a gate outside. Leave the room the way you came in, go right into a room to collect a Book of Serendipity and Chocolate-Covered Banana. Go back to Fouriers room now and use the Elevator Key to use the lift which takes you directly back down to 1F.

Exit the building, watch the events and trek all the way back to Zavhert. The save point just outside the city has a skit: Fatherly Advice followed by another: Practice Makes Perfect. The latter leads to an optional fight with Sophie; defeat her and she acquires the Pact Adherent title. Zavhert You need to speak to some not-too-happy citizens (4 of them). Visit the inn for a skit: Plan B; rest here as well for a bonus event. At the residence off to the southwest part of town is an event star there are 3 of these in this chapter wherein Malik reminisces of days long past. Further west from here is Fermats house. Go in there and watch the scenes and youll soon get the Security Pass. The second event star is at the Inn. Once youre ready, take the road going north from the Inn to Fendel Tower.

Collect Peach Gel (x3) outside the tower then head inside. (1F) At the save point is a skit: Convincing Kurt. The only working lift right now is the one downstairs to the northeast; use that to get to 39F.

(39F-40F) Take the stairs to the left to head to the next floor. Here, use the platforms to reach the highest level and reach a chest with 3500 Gald. After that, go east and down to get back outside. Now, go talk to the guard blocking the top-left exit and select any option to make him leave and enable you to proceed.

(41F) Go east, turn the left and right valves to go up to a chest with an Hourglass. Continue about halfway through the top level for a skit: Panel Discussion. The treasure chest the bottom-left section of 42F contains Platinum Frames for Hubert, but its inaccessible right now so just come back for it later. At the left side of the highest level of this floor is the Frozen Nest discovery and the Revisionist History skit.

For the steam valves, ignore the one in the middle and turn the other two, so you can proceed. Back outside, someone will give you some items to give to the soldiers: Item Apple Gel Grape Gel Peach Gel Apple Gel Recipient Soldier Officer High-Ranking Soldier High-Ranking Officer

If you give an incorrect gel, you'll have to repeat again. Their positions will change accordingly every time you try so there's no other way than to memorize their appearances. Once thats done, go through the northwest exit, and move along towards the bottom level. The chest at top contains an Eleth Bottle C and the one at the bottom has Life Bottle (x3). Take the far right panel at the middle to the next screen when you have everything. There, collect Grape Gel (x2), go up and ride the east panel down to the Treasure Trove discovery plus a new skit: High Maintenance.

After that, return to the tower; the top-right elevator is now working so ride it to up to 41F, take the northwest exit and go up to the previously inaccessible section of 42F to collect a new pair of glasses for Hubert. Return to the town afterward. Zavhert Stop by Zavherts inn first for a skit: Northeast, Ho! Also, dont forget to pay Fermat a visit for an extra event. Head up the stairs northeast of the inn towards Glacier Road once youre ready. Glacier Road Just a bit northwest from the entrance is an Artificial Crystal. Some ways further northeast near a Turtlez is a chest with 2381 Gald. Continue north to the ruins now.

Fendel Glacier Ruins Head into the cave and proceed until the area opens up. The chest nearest to the entrance has Grape Gel (x2). Now push the ice block west then move it into position at the top of the slope going down. Let it go here so that it slides down and knocks the large piece of icicle over, creating a makeshift bridge for you to cross.

Collect the Syrup Bottle (x2) at the bottom of the slope. Next, pull the ice block back up and send it down the west slope then down south to smash another icicle.

Cross the first icicle to a chest with Magic for Men before continuing along the other makeshift bridge to the next area. Follow the path past a couple of screens to a larger section of the cave, where you can check the big piece of icicle for the Rainbow Ice Pillar discovery plus a skit: Running Out of Time.

Go back up and move the ice block, sending it down the slope the left so you can reach the treasure chest containing a Strong Bone. With that done, take that same block of ice and send it down another slope, this time going south. This knocks over a pair of icicles for you to cross later. Now, go down then left to another ice block. Send this one down the nearby downward slope, knocking over yet another icicle. Collect an Elemental Ribbon from the chest nearest you, and a Whirling Seashell from the one off to the right. Finally, grab the ice block next to the chest with the seashell and send it down south to continue to the next area. There, go north first at the fork to claim a Book of Valor before turning around the other way to another part of the cave.

At the save point is a skit: No Lack of Resolve. At the next area, go south first and move the ice block over to the gap, before crossing over east to another ice block which you can send down west Next to the icicle that youre supposed to smash is a skit: Allow Me To Demonstrate. Having seen that demo by Pascal, drag the ice block as far up the slope as you can then let it go. With that big one down, take the block again and send it down south then push it over to the other slope off to right before sending it on a collision course with your bridge. Cross over to a chest with Panacea Bottle (x3).

Grab the nearby ice block and move all the way to the top, sending it down the slope going east. Follow after it and have it slide down the next slope so you can claim a Mastery Tonic C. Now, trace your steps back to the giant icicle and cross it to a chest housing 525 Eleth Units. Proceed to the next area where you can save and head to where the valkines is for some scenes, then you get to fight Kurt. Boss Battle Kurt and Dragoons The Dragoons, though not that strong can prove quite annoying as their rifle shots can momentarily stun your characters and break whatever combo you had going. You can get rid of them if you want but Kurt will simply call for reinforcements to replace the dead ones. As for Kurt, focus on Artes that are effective on humans and are fire-based. Asbels Infernal Torrent is a good example. It you can stick Burn on him then all the better. Kurts attacks are mostly physical and he chains them into brutal combos against whoever he manages to trap. If an ally dies, revive and heal them well just in case. Be ready to defend at all times especially if youre fighting up close. You might also want to change strategy for your AI allies and have them defend often.

Once you have control after the events, check the valkines to record the Forbrannir discovery, after which Malik acquires the World Seeker title, Have a look at Kurt to find a free Platinum Bladerang. Save and talk to the others, but its just Sophie you need to speak with to proceed. Watch some rather long events and when you can move again, stand near the valkines for a skit: Just Ask Gramps. Warp out of here and youll have one more skit: To the Archive of Wisdom. Amarcian Enclave & Zavhert Your next stop is the Amarcian Enclave but first, stop by Zahverts inn again for a new skit: Selective Memory. At the enclave, head to the Overseers Chamber and go for the room beyond the door. Soon after, you find out that you need to get to Worlds Eye, and to do that you must trek back to Zavhert again. Stop by the save point at the enclaves inn first for a skit: Connecting the Dots. On your way back to town at Mt. Zavhert, at one of the save points is a skit: What If He Knows? Alternatively, you can just take a Turtlez Transport back to Zahvert if youre tired of running around in the snow. When you make it back to town, stop by the inn again for the next skit: The Missing Pieces. Complete whatever requests you can, and throw away those Trash items that youve been collecting into the can next to the west counter. Head for the port when youre ready and sail to Worlds Eye. Worlds Eye Asbel acquires the Friend to the End title while Sophie receives the Conflicted at Heart title. The leader says to snoop around, but theres nothing much to see because the game doesnt let you. What you do get however is a skit (A Near Miss?) at the save point. Save and forward for a boss fight. Boss Battle Richard Its been a quite a while since you last fought him, but he really hasnt changed much. Richard still uses Nova Barrier as usual but you know how to deal with that already Break through it with a Nova attribute Arte, in case you forgot. Its also easy to pile combos on him in this encounter so go for that to end this battle quickly. One thing he has to his advantage is an accelerated charge speed for his Eleth Gauge, wherein he uses Bloody Rose as a finisher. Its not very strong but might want to heal if your HPs end up a bit on the low side. What he does have here is plenty of health so it will take a while wither him down.

After the battle, watch the scenes and you'll be asked to save the game. This chapter has concluded. Back

If you haven't yet, you can challenge the Carter in the eastern part of the town to get new items and titles since your collection of Magic Carta cards should have grown extensively.

Normal Mode Race to 200 points Winning the round but the opponent scored (1st time) = Book of Cuisine Winning flawlessly = Sophie's Great Pirate title Hard Mode Race to 300 points The challenge in this level is that several cards are on top of each other and you have to carefully but quickly select them without accidentally selecting the cards above them.

Talk to him to receive the request item Spade. This is actually the very request item posted in the Velanik inn. If you've been following this walkthrough then you should have acquired the drill earlier from Fourier's room in the Amarcian Enclave. Otherwise, you'll have to come back later since the boat going to Zavhert is currently grounded. If you already have the drill, hand it over to Scoop and complete this sub-event.

This will give Malik or Pascal more than enough time to chain devastating artes that will break the boss' guard and make it open for your melee fighters to execute devastating combos. Aside from its long-ranged attacks, it won't give effort to chase and corner your spellcasters so they'll be in a relatively safe distance from its attacks. There's a trophy for defeating this boss in 60 seconds as well.

After the battle, use the warp to conveniently leave the dungeon. Untrodden Snowfield As soon as you exit, you'll have to fight a few more monsters. Go to the savepoint for a skit.
