10x Exp Challenges

When you get to activate the 10x Exp mode, you may find yourself bored with beating bosses toward a later part of the game.

Make them interesting by doing one or more of the following:

1. Fighting them with Lloyd only (switch everyone else to Hold Position).

2. Don't use any items.

3. Use only the most basic equipment.

A prime example of this is that while fighting Kratos for the third time, it was very challenging to fight him with no items and only a Wooden Blade. I was around L160 or so.

2 Last Fencers

After the Flanoir Doctor Event (if you don't know what event i'm talking about then your not there yet)make sure your going to get Kratos instead of Zelos (when ppl knock on Lloyds door refuse all of them). Before You leave Lloyd should ask Zelos if he can trust him. Now instead of going to the tower of Salvation, do all the Sidequests involving Zelos that rewards members of your party a title. Go to the Arena in Meltokio and beat all difficulties. Then replay Advance and Seles (Zelos' sister) should challenge you. Beat her and she drops elemental circet and the Last Fencer. Continue playing and whatever until Kratos join your party for good. Then return to the arena and play advance mode again. Seles will challenge you and if you win you get another elemental circet and another Last Fencer.

In the earth temple find the dragon and equip a character in your fighting party with *blue sephira, the dragon will give now instead of 10000 gald 20000. Do not attempt until you are Lvl 50+.




*Equipping blue sephira and sephira together will negate each other, do not try it, it will not work

A Mother's Love

This is the supposed secret to obtaining Virginia's Diary, which most people seem to have problems getting:

DO NOT GO INTO VIRGINIA'S HOUSE BEFORE THE FOLLOWING STEPS! Doing so will cancel the event.

As soon as you reach disc two, head over to Exire and talk to the mayor, he will recognize Raine and inform her that Virginia is within Exire. NOW go over to Virginia;s house, go inside, and hear what she has to say. After the sad disscussion, the mayor will aproach you and inform you that he has been keeping virginia's diary with him all the long.

Now go to the mayor's house and speak to him to obtain Virginia's Diary.

Abbysion

I am giving a tip on how to beat him.First train up to level 70-80+(It will be hard on this level so I recommend 100+)

Now go fight the Third Sword Dancer and get the Kusinangi Blade.Once you equip that teach Genis Explosion and Raine Ray.After you have done this teach Zelos Victory Light Spear or Light Spear Cannon.Then you put the U.Attack moves as this-Zelos-Light Spear Cannon/Victory Light Spear.Raine-Ray.Genis-Explosion.Lloyd-This is your choice.I used Super Sonic Thrust.The Special Unison will be Prism Stars(Raine and Genis)

Now go and fight Abbysion.Have at least 15-20 Hourglasses and 30 Energy Tablets/Elixirs

This is how I beat him.Hope it helps.

Aquire TWO Gaia Cleavers

Get Presea to level 80, then return to the destroyed
Ozette and talk to the guy standing at the grave.
If Presea is level 80, He will give you the Gaia Cleaver. Now, Walk away, but don't exit the area. Equip the Gaia Cleaver and talk to him again, he'll tell you the same story and give you another Gaia Cleaver. There really isn't much of a point to getting two Gaia Cleavers, as you can only equip one at a time and can't sell it, but it's still kinda fun.

Backstep and Backflip

- While pressing X, tap the Constrol Stick back to perform a backstep
- When you are hit by an enemy and sent up in the air, press X to perform a backflip.

Backsteps are useful to quickly create a distance between you and your opponent.

Backflips are useful to resume battle after being sent away by your enemy and to avoid staggering.

BEST WEAPONS! Plus Abbysion Guide

no ones done this.

I'm going to tell you how to find the best weapons, and defeat Abbysion, (since theres one strategy up)

Lloyd: Most people know his best weapons the kusangi blade, defeat all sword dancers (theres 3) Or after getting the derris emblem, go to the colosium and beat all three levels with lloyd, and you'll get valkery blade or something, thats his best THRUST weapon.

Genis: I'm sorry, this is the only one i don't know how to get. It's called One World.

Raine: Lets see you get this one. You have to beat advanced class. I haven't done it yet. Good luck.

Regal: After getting derris emblem, go to Meltokio, and beside the castle, there will be two people arguing, one being the Wonder Chef!!!!!!!! Anyways, you will have a cook off blah blah blah. After that, go into the castle into the dungeon, and put regal as your avatar. Walk up the cells and down the other side, one cell contains a prisoner, he will talk about a guy in hot spring, regal will ask to go there. accept. Go the hot springs, (above the continent with meltokio) Go past and talk to the old man, talk to him again and you'll get DYNAST! Assuming your lvl 80 and up. so train till regals lvl 80.

Presea: When your level 80 or above with presea, you need the derris emblem, again. Then go to destroyed ozette, talk to the guy in front of preseas daddy's grave. and talk again (i think) and he'll give you the gaia clever. WOW! most powerful set stat weapon in the game. 999 atk.

Sheena: Her colosium weapon, so beat advanced on colosium.

Zelos/Kratos: When you beat advanced class, you'll get a bonus match with Seles, and shes tough, you cant use items. Or if you fail, you can face her with any character. She will give you Last Fencer.

Colette: Another colosium weapon.

now for abbysion guide:

Hes anything BUT easy. Suggestion for players
Presea: lvl 80 Lloyd: lvl 81 Raine: lvl 79/78 Regal: lvl 81 Or Take regal out, and add genis lvl 79.

So you facing the evil man who decieved you, lets go all out attack right? err, wrong, hes very tough, toughest in the game, IGNORE MY NAME! ITS NOT TRUE! He will start by running at you and attacking then teleport, he will use everyones attacks, so really irritating, he is. So have gels, bottles and equip everyone with stuff that increase elemental or physical attacks, it helps a lot. Start by obviously sending raine to nurse, revitalize, resurection, field barrier, Accutness, healing circle and finally recover. No attack spells. Unison attack suggestion, Raine: Photon, Lloyd: Omega Tempest or Psi Tempest Presea: Eternal Damnation Regal: Any attack. And you'll get a bonus attack Raine and Lloyds photon tempest. or if you have genis instead. Lloyd: hunting beast/ rising falcon Raine: Ray Genis: Cyclone or Tidal Wave or Dreaded Wave or Indignation (most suggested) Or Ground Dasher. Presea: Eternal Damnation. Bonus will be Raine and Genis's PRISM STARS! Most pwerful unison bonus in my oppinion. Its light elemental so that works well. Now just let Lloyd use rising falcon and hunting beast. And presea: all her best techs. He should eventually, just when he gets into overlimit, worry, he'll cast many high level spells and Indination Judgement and meteor Storm. And thats my suggestion.

Colette's Good Ability

Using Colette's Item Rover or Item Thief equipped with the EXCompound Skill Item Getter, Colette has a 100% chance to steal an enemy's item assuming the enemy has an item equipped. Use this ability to fill your stock with lots of Energy Tablets and Spirit Bottles, and lots of Stat Boosters.

Collesium Tips

When I first tried out the collision with other characters I found it hard, but I figured out techniques to make it easier for some characters. Here are a few:

Presea - Jump behind the enemy and give it a few axe swings then use beast, for me it takes of about 1500 HP. If you are successful with perfoming beast it will knock the enemy over, which can buy you time to retreat then attack again.

Sheena - She has low defense and HP. I tended to use her speed to my advantage by running and jumping over the enemy, I then attacked the enemy and used Demon seal, this knocks the enemy over, repeat this process as it can be reliable as if it is performed well, you can beat any battle without losing any HP!

Good luck, when I figure more out, I'll submit them. =)

Devil's Arms

In Flanoir, if you have the Evil Eye Chakram, a man will say that you have a Devil's arm and that he is cursed by them. He says that there are nine and that if you get them all he will be cured and gives you Nebilim and Neblim's key. If you find a dark coloured chest (kind of purplish) you can now open it with the key. Once you find all of them and give it to the man, he will turn into a monster (120,000 HP) and if you beat him, the Devils Arms will now gain power from every monster you kill with them, making them the best weapons in the game!

Easiest money in the game

All these Dragon tricks are good,but require high combat level. I discovered this trick:Have atleast 8000 gald,finished Dragon Nest in Tethe'alla and possibly Item Getter ability for Colette. Now fight some enemy that gives you Rune Bottles when using stealing abilities. (Undertaker,Chimaera)Now steal all Rune bottles from the battle and run. Repeat till satisfied. Don't sell the rune bottles,instead buy Talisman in Flanoir for 8000 gald. Turn to Blue talisman using the Rune Bottle and sell for a whopping 20.000 Gald!!! Now buy two,turn em to blue ones,sell etc etc. I was able to afford 3 additional Black Onyxes right after Dragon Nest.

Gald

An easy way to obtain a large amount of Gald and accumulate millions over an hour or so is by the Dragon in the Temple of Earth. This will take less time if you have the characters' strongest weapons or powered-up Devil's Arms. Equip your fighting party with their strongest weapons they have, set the difficulty to "Normal" (so battling doesn't take forever), and equip one person with the Blue Sephira. More than one Sephira or Blue Sephira does not add on its effect, so don't waste your time. Now you travel to the Temple of Earth and fight/kill the Dragon, exit through the northern door, go back in, and repeat.

Through this method, I got over seven million Gald in two-three hours. You also get decent GRADE (1-4) and EXP if you fight well and fast.

Genis' Ultimate Weapon and some arena tips

in order to get Genis' ultimate weapon, One World, you have to beat all three levels of Red Light/Green light after seeing the scene behind vinheim's door but before fighting the final boss.

Arena tips (advanced level)
normally the game will not let you change what your chara has equipped during an arena fight, but it will allow it if you do it immediately after the fight has started.

if you are trying to put Genis and or Raine through the arena, i suggest that they have both speed cast and spell save alone with a holy symbol or holy ring. for the 1st fight, take out the soldier first and then go for the dragon. if your HP starts getting low, hold down the block button and let the holy symbol do its thing before trying to attack again. (this is very time consuming but it works) for the second fight, you should have time to cast a spell or two if you get as far away from the opponent as possible. 3rd fight is fairly easy, as if you stay underneath the drake, it can only hurt you via spark wave which it doesn't use a whole lot, so you should be fine there. 4th fight: back away and cast spells and block. 5th: block until he flies into the air, then go under him and start casting spells. another thing, make sure you have some good recipes so that you can cook in between fights and restore your HP/TP. (side note: i was about to put all my charas through the arena w/ levels around 80-95, i also had their stats close to 9999/999 with the help of sages and savories attained w/ Colette's item finder in the darkness temple)

Getting Max HP and TP without leveling up

I found this very helpful. It's pretty simple too. Ok first of all, have Colette equip the EX gems Tough and Sharp-eyed. This increases the chance of finding items after battle. Trust me, you'll need this. Then go to Torent Forest and battle the monsters. The 2 you're looking for are the Carnivorous plantdrops Red Sage- increase max HP by 10%) and Alraunedrops Red Savory- increases max TP by 10%). If you encounter them, fight and with a little bit of luck, you'll get the 2 items you need and if you don't encounter them, just escape and try again. I did this for awhile and all my characters with the exception of Genis have 9999 HP and everyone has 999 TP. I realize you could use the Moonstone and Black Onyx, but if you want to equip something besides those 2, eg. Holy Symbol, and still have max HP or TP, then it's a really good thing. Or maybe you just don't want to level up to 150 or 200 to get max HP and TP.

Helpful elemental stuff

It should probably be obvious that equipping a character with an item that has a defense from an element causes attacks / spells of that element to do reduced damage. But did you know that this effect is cumulative? Equipping any character with at least 3 items with a defense to a particular element (particularly after obtaining the Star set which has varied resistances to elements including Fire, Light, and Dark) will cause damage from that element to be completely negated. This means that not only will your character receive no damage, they won't even stagger! And as a bonus, the character still gets closer to Overlimit from every one of these negated hits. This information is particularly useful for fights that you can actually apply it (aka not early into the game), in my case, I beat Abbysion and Maxwell back to back with all my characters in the 70s, on hard mode, without stopping to heal OR restock items in between! This was all thanks to Lloyd's immunity to Fire, since Abbyssion will target Lloyd 90% of the time if he's alive for most of the battle, and every time he cast Explosion or Flame Lance I could get in a good 20 hits, and a few times during the battle I used this window of opportunity to unleash Prism Stars. The helpfulness against Maxwell was reduced, but at least twice allowed Lloyd to live through a Raging Mist for enough time to be healed by Raine. And this is only the beginning of these possibilities. You can make the gems given by the Summon Spirits much more useful applying this, and Sheena's later weapons offer natural resistances. The Elemental Circlet and Spirit Robe also help. And having 2 resistances equipped isn't a waste, you still reduce much more damage than you would with just one. And thus my ranting ends. Have fun with this! Ciao.

Finish it to ear 26000 gald ( plus even more bonus' from the battles!!! ).

Recommended at least level 55+ for this to be considered "easy". Otherwise, it might not be that easy... Still, have fun. This is a great way to earn money for the "Luin Restoration Fund".

Lloyd's best weapon isn't Valkry's saber or the one you get from defeating all 3 sword dancers (forgot the name). Lloyd's best weapon is Nebilim (the sword you get from Abyssion). I didn't think this at first, but after seeing how hard Abbysion hits (he uses Nebilim), i decided to try it out, and all of my attacks were doing in the 1,000-2,000 dmg area, against ALL kinds of monsters, weak and strong.

Lloyds Ultimate Sword

The Material Blade is not Lloyds best weapon. The best weapon for Lloyd is the Kusanagi Blade. How you get it takes some doing. You must beat the Sword Dancer 3 times. First he appears in the mine at the Ossa Trail with 8,888 HP. He disappears after Lloyd speaks to Colette at the mountaintop of Hima right before going to the Tower of Salvation. Second time is in the Gaoracchia Forest. He has 33,333 HP. He disappears after you defeat Luna and Aska. The third time is in Iselia Forest after the party returns from the Tower of Salvation and Colett's illness is cured. The creature has 99,999 HP, so it has more HP than any other creature in the game. The last time it is defeated, it drops the Kusangagi Blade. It takes some effort, but it's worth it.

The Devil's Arms

The Devil's Arms are powerful weapons hidden around Tethe'alla and Sylvarant. They can surpass any other weapon and do over 2500 damage a hit. Think of that with Lloyd! It takes some work to get them.

First,(for Collete), in the Mine where you get Inhibitor Ore, check the pieces of the Bakura after you smash it to get the "Evil Eye". Take it to Flanoir and show it to a dark-haired man named Abyssion. He will give you access to the other weapons.

Lloyd: Given automatically by Abyssion.

Regal: In the bottom floor of the large building in Waligaia.

Presea: The gorge where you get the Mana Leaf Herb.

Zelos or Kratos: Gaoracchia Forest

Zelos or Kratos: Talk to everyone in Triet to trigger a sandworm event. Fight the worm (it will be in a glowing ring in the desert).

Genis: Go to Altimira and stay at the hotel. At night, go to the Casino and buy it from a man on the bridge.

Sheena: Collect the 5 Gnomettes (one is in Altessa's house). It's in a chest that they were blocking.

Raine-After getting all other 8 weapons, talk to Abyssion. Go to Hanosanka Peak and get it from the old man.

After collecting the weapons, go to the Temple of darkness to fight Abyssion for the right to the weapons.

To Use The Eternal Sword

Use Lloyd for this
-Equip the Material Blades
-Set Sheena on Manual or Semi-Auto (you have to control her as well)
-Make sure that nobody can heal you
-Fight an enemy that uses spells

First you have to die.
Then control Sheena to make her use Purgatory Seal.
Now, have Lloyd with his 0 HP wait for your opponent to cast a spell.
I'd do this the first time on Mithos because his Ray spell is easy to time this with.
Use Falcon's Crest (A,B,X same time) before the last Ray falls on you and make sure the two swords have merged before you die. (You can mess up sometimes because Lloyd jumps right through it sometimes)
Now you will be unable to open the item menu with Lloyd.
Now go over to Sheena's controller and have her use a life bottle on Lloyd.
He will be using the Eternal Sword for the remainder of the fight.
The downside is that since Lloyd is only using one hand he does nothing when he swings with his other arm.
You can't cast spells the rest of the fight.

Fighting Abyssion

After you've assembled the Devil's Arms and have traveled to the depths of the Shadow Temple, you may want a little help with fighting Abyssion. Here's a quick runthrough.

BOSS: Abyssion - Strengths: None
HP: 120000 - EXP: 8000
TP: 8200 - Gald: 6800
Weaknesses: None
Items: Hyper Gauntlet, Jet Boots
Techs: Tiger Rage, Raging Beast, Double Demon Fang, Ring Cyclone, Swallow Dance, S. Lightning Blade, Mass Devastation, Victory Light Spear, Flame Lance, Explosion, Gravity Well, Indignation Judgment, Meteor Storm, Prism Sword, Indignation, Spread, Thunder Arrow

Just imagine that you could combine all your fighters into one god character with all the combined Techs. Then multiply that character's
power by 2, and you'll have Abyssion. He loves using Lloyd's Techs to beat the crap out of you; don't be surprised if you've been knocked out of 5000 HP in a 5 hit combo. You better have Raine in your party for Resurrection and First Aid type spells, and be fully stocked in everything. To the extreme, Guard Bottles are a help. You could start
the battle with Field Barrier, and then get Genis to provide magical assistance. Another strong backup melee character should be Presea, Zelos, or Kratos. Try your best to keep him away from the backfield characters, and use items sparingly. You'll run out quickly if you keep using them.

When Abyssion reaches Over Limit, there's a chance he'll use two devastating spells to kill your party: Indignation Judgment followed by Meteor Storm. Maybe you haven't seen either, but Indignation Judg. will almost certainly KO at least one character, while Meteor Storm will
pick up the slack and try to take out the rest. Use Energy Tablets and Life Bottles to try to recover. Otherwise, he'll rip through your
weakness. Fortunately, he can't summon anything--otherwise you'd be screwed. If you die early on, your strategy isn't working. Try something new or level up more. Continue until you can win. It is possible.

Finding/Fighting Maxwell

Go behind the elder's house to a lone island with a graveyard; if you can't make it out, hover over Exire and looks for a long road to a lone grave. Equip your first four characters with an Opal, Garnet, Aquamarine, and a Ruby, and then examine the stone.

BOSS: Maxwell - Strengths: None
HP: 60000 - EXP: 10800
TP: 800 - Gald: 8250
Weaknesses: None
Items: Spirit Robe, Turquoise
Techs: Raging Mist, Gravity Well, Dreaded Wave, Meteor Storm

The only Tech you should worry about is Meteor Storm. If he uses it, use any Defense Tech you have three times to outlast it. Hopefully, not much damage will be dealt. Use Energy Tablets to recover after the blast. This shouldn't be so difficult; use three melee characters and a healer for best result. The melee characters can keep him staggering while the healer, obviously, heals the party.

Good Luck!

This is a good combination with getting Rune Bottles from the Undertakers in the forest that leads to Mizuho, because you can make them into Red Sage and Red Savory ( Red Sage +10% HP, Red Savory +10% TP).

Since it activates randomly, here is how to activate Holy Judgement easily:
- Have the requirements listed above
- Start to cast Holy Song and look down the screen and check if the "TARGET" sign is on one of the character icons
- If "TARGET" sign is on, cancel the casting by pressing the X button

If the "TARGET" sign is not showing, continue casting Holy Song; Holy Judgement should then activate when the casting time is over without any distractions.

Infinite Combo?

Use Colette and set an Angel Skill on the B button in the Tech Money.

Encounter an enemy(preferably a large single enemy, such as the dragon in the Earth Shrine)

During the battle, hold down X and press the A and B buttons alternately.
By this, there will be no gap after the regular attacks by canceling spell cast; therefore continue the counting the strikes of the regular attacks.

However, the enemy would forcefully be down by the 50th hit and the combo would end. Thus, you should combine U. Attacks before the 50 hit to get a high combo record.


This cheat can also possibly be used on Kratos and Zelos.

Iselia Human Ranch Hidden Chest

For some reason, a treasure chest appears after you complete the Iselia Human Ranch. It is located outside the ranch, right before you enter. It is where you saw Marble or near that area.

Old Characters in the Coliseum

Win Advanced Class with the party to get an Extreme Symbol and then challenge the three characters in an exhibition match.

BOSS: Garr - Strengths: Earth, Lightning, Ice, Dark
HP: 20000 - EXP: 3200
TP: 150 - Gald: 4800
Weaknesses: None
Items: Mumbane
Techs: Gale, Hail, Decisive Slice, (Flare Bottle), (Hourglass)

BOSS: Farah Oersted - Strength: Fire
HP: 20000 - EXP: 3300
TP: 150 - Gald: 2800
Weaknesses: None
Items: Star Cloak
Techs: Palm Strike, Beast, Ground Breaker, Swallow Dance, Eagle Dive

BOSS: Meredy - Strengths: None
HP: 16000 - EXP: 2100
TP: 1450 - Gald: 2800
Weaknesses: None
Items: Krona Symbol
Techs: Indignation, Acid Rain, Barrier, Thunder Blade, Explosion, Absolute, Resurrection, Meteor Storm, Holy Lance, Eruption, Freeze Lancer

Normally, any one of these three could be a boss on their own; unfortunately, you have to face them in a three-on-three exhibition match. I'd recommend Lloyd and Raine and another good melee character. Hopefully you're at least Lv75 by now.

Go after Meredy first; her spell Techs are evil. Take a break from time to time to heal the other party members, but keep attacking her. After she dies, she'll auto-revive herself, so drain the last bit of her HP and then go after Farah.

Farah is a lot like a combination of Regal and Lloyd. She has a very strong Beast Tech (Ground Breaker) which delivers three Beasts in a row.
Try to make her stagger often and draw her attention away from the others.

Garr should be last on your list. By now, the words Gale and Hail must be very annoying. Attack fast and firmly--he will use items in this battle, including the devastating Hourglass, which stops time on your side of things for about 15 seconds. He can do a lot of damage in that time. Toward the end, he will start using Decisive Slice, very similar to Forcystus' "Down Burst" Tech. It's not much hassle to win though, so take all the shots you have.

Good luck with it. You'll get a nice amount of items when you win.

Red Light, Green Light Glitch

When playing Red Light, Green Light in Tethe'alla, press Start when the Sea-Katz begin to turn around. You'll be asked if you want to quit. Select no, and when you go back to the game, Genis will be standing still regardless of whether or not he was in the middle of a move. This is a cheap, easy way to ensure that you never get caught by the Sea-Katz when he turns around.

Stopping an enemy

I know from experiance that it's hard to dodge enemies when you don't want to battle. Well, when in places like the fire temple(the place where you have to kill those three dinosuars), shoot you're sorcerers ring at the worm or bird like thing you have to touch to have a battle. This will turn it blue and stop it in it's tracks for a few seconds.

Hope this helps!
