Default dagger

Synch breaking the default dagger may be quick and easy, BUT all in all it's not that great. As you cannot build it up, it max stats will be low. When you synch break, you only get 60% of the weapons total attributes. Now if you look at the daggers max stats, 60% isn't that good. SO if you just took the time to get a few extra swords or whatever, you could synch break them and have a much higher stat proportion than you would the dagger.

duel perfectly, get a gem (time saver hint)

when you get all "cool" comments on the duels, the faery's give you a gem. if you get less than a "cool" don't bother restarting the game (unless it's the last one) - all you have to do is press the wrong button at the wrong time, and you will fail. once you fail the duel you are given a choice to retry. go for it! if you get perfect, you still get the gem! and it takes less time than to restart.

Easiest Way to Level Up Your Weapons!

Okay, first off, you need to go to Norune Village. SAVE YOUR GAME because this is a glitch and it can and sometimes will cause your game to FREEZE. Go talk to Old Gaffer/Goffer. You need to go to your attachments tab and make sure the last two rows are empty. Now, go to the ice that he has for sale and hit X and --> at the SAME TIME. It will take a while, but after so often a broken dagger icon will appear. Back out of the store and SAVE! Just to be safe. Then, equip the broken dagger to any weapon you want to build up. THE STATS WILL MAX OUT!!! Finally, upgrade your weapon with the broken dagger equipped and right after you can build up your weapon. I use this at the very start of the game, and if you are lucky enough to get some weapons in the first level, you can have VERY strong weapons by the time you get to Dran and maybe kill him within 2 HITS. Hope this helps <img src="http://cdn.staticneo.com/neoassets/smileys/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> If you need a visual, there is a YouTube video showing the process, just look up "Broken Dagger Glitch"

Easy Abs

The back floor of Wise Owl Forest 10 has werewolves which give you 24 abs for each one. just keep going in and out of this floor to get as much abs as you want. Floors 5 and 6 have sundew keys on them 95% of the time for getting in. The werewolves are also fairly easy to beat as long as you stay in close to them so they cant do their flying leap, and never let them surround you.

Easy ABS with Flapping Fish

Most know that you can buy the Flapping Fish/Ice to get to the back level of the Shipwrecks for better items. However, the best level to use them on is Level 14. The back area of this has multiple "Masks of Pravda" which give 28 ABS apiece when defeated.

The Masks can be a little bit difficult til you're used to their patterns. Once learned, you can easily level up all your weapons, even the short ranged(swords, hammers, etc.) with ease. As the short ranged carriers like Goro tend to get hit a lot, these masks are pretty easy to kill without getting hit.

Easy default weapon upgrade

First unlock all of the characters that you want to have their basic weapons upgraded; then, go to one of the first lairs, and upgrade that weapon to lv. 5. Then turn it into a synth-sphere.

After that, attach it to the deafult weapon and repeat as many times as you would like.

After 3 or four times, you should have a killer weapon/synth-sphere.

Easy Defeat & Money

If you buy or steal (with bandit slingshot or bandits ring) at least 4 bombs for each level, bomb nuts or bombs, by the time you get to the Ice Queen Saia, you will definately have enough to defeat her. And all you have to do is put them in the Old Hag's or Couscous' bag. And make sure you buy at least 2 or 3 gold bullions during each place so you can have enough money to buy things when you're out of money. I usually just sell most of my amulets because they're really no use. Keep 5 stamina potions, and 1 Antifreeze amulet to defeat her.

Easy Gems!

Once you have full rebuilt Ruty's shop in Queens you can buy "flapping fish" from her. This is the item you need to go to the back floors of the shipwreck. Back floors usually contain at least one gem. A fish and a block of ice (needed to keep the fish) costs a total of 200 gilda. Simply buy a fish and a block of ice then go to any floor of the shipwreck other than the floor you fight the boss on and go to the back floor. Very easy way to get gems for those weapon build ups. Good luck!

Gem / attachment help

Don't bother trying to spend hard earned gilda or fish points on all the attachments and the 11 gems you can get. Instead, I have narrowed it down to only 6 gems you'll need that will give you stats in everything.

Amethyst - Gives +10 to ice
Diamond - Gives +5 to all anti's
Pearl - Gives +10 to endurance and thunder
Ruby - Give +10 to speed and fire
Peridot - Gives +5 to attack / +10 to holy
Sapphire - Gives +10 to MP and wind

As you can see, you have your 4 main stats for your weapon (Attack, endurance, speed, MP), all of the anti's (i.e. anti-dragon, anti-sky, etc.), and all of your elements (thunder, fire, ice, holy, and wind).

As well, you can get all of these by either A) Playing through the dungeons, B) Random findings in towns, C) Spend 100 fish points per gem, or D) Buy them towards the end of the game for 3000 gilda apiece.

How To Get Serpent Sword And Kill Serpent

During your time in Matataki village, you will notice a cave hole and inside is a dried up tree. And like the Fairy King said, you have to give it water. So when you get to about level 7, you need to leave dungeon, don't go to next floor, and go back to Matataki village from Wise Owl Forest.Then connect the river first to the tree and go back to the waterfall. A Sunday or Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday or Friday or Saturday will open the water gate. Then go back to the tree and it will talk in a weird language. Use the hunter's earring or whatever it's called and listen to the tree talk. Then all of the sudden it will sneeze and you will receive the "SERPENT SWORD". Then you go back to the Wise Owl Forest and you should have a flute like thing given by a musician that attracts snakes. You use that item with the square button. Then when the serpent comes out (I forgot, make sure and I mean MAKE SURE you are equipped with the serpent sword or you will die badly) and duel with the serpent. When it is defeated, it will drop something. And it will be Goro's (fat hunter boy's ) Dad's necklace. It is the only proof to show Goro his dad is dead. And after you get Goro to be an ally, then you go back to the floor where you fought the serpent and use his hammer and open the door.

Jibubu and the Foundation

Finding the right time to give Jibubu the foundation seems to be a common problem, but it can be done easily and quickly using these steps:

1. Make sure you traded the Ointment Leaf to Basker for the Foundation BEFORE you take the Moon Orb to Yellow Drops.

2. Once you get to the Sun&Moon Temple, clear only the first six floors and make sure you collected all the atla pieces.

3. By then you should have enough atla to complete Jibubu's house. First, place the house by itself, then go talk to Jibubu and see what he needs to finish it. Go back into Georamama Mode and complete the house.

4. Now when you approach Jibubu's place, you'll enter a cut scene where he will whine about not being the prettiest guy in the village. He'll give you a reward and send you off.

5. Immediately re-enter his house and say "Hello" to him again to get him to talk about something he heard about that can make you look better. When the "!" appears above his head, press square to go into your items and give him the Foundation. You'll get the Clay Doll in exchange.

Running Out Of Water

When you first start playing this game you will be able to get a free sample from the guy in the yellow rocket everytime you use your water. But as you progress further that will not happen. You will need to be more careful. What I suggest is that you go to a waterfall often. If you see one on a level, you should go there because there is nothing worse than dying of thirst. Remember whenever you see a waterfall always head for it.

Glitches

Back to top

Medusa Powder glitch

In Queens, go to Basker's place, say "Can I check my items?" (or something like that), get out of the place, then go to Joker's crystal shop. Now, ask him if you can shop, then place the cursor UNDER the holy attachment, and press RIGHT+X at the same time. You should get an item called "Medusa Powder."

It will say it will stop monsters for awhile, but it's not useful in battle. If you repeat the process and get three, go to Suzy's water market, sell all three (they are 1 gilda a piece, but this is where it get's fun...) now, go all the way down on both sides (for your side, it should be the Attachments inventory), press RIGHT+X, and guess what? Cha-Ching! You will get a Sun Sword, with other stuff, too. Comes with a fully charged ABS gauge, just upgrade it with all the stuff and you're good to go with using other attachments (like the good old broken dagger glitch... I know where you can get them in more than one place, too. Just ask me.)

The Broken Dagger

The broken dagger is a glitch item that will max all stats on a weapon.

How to get it: Equip your dagger
Go to a shop that sells the ice elemental attachment.
go into the shop mode.
Place ice next too your inventory
switch inventory to attachment
Go to an empty slot NEXT TO the ICE on your page.
Go on the ice attachment and click X and the RIGHT key at the same time.
This can take a few tries. Also, if you use the wrong section, you may receive a moon signet or invisible item. They CAN be sold, on occasion. I sold one for 3050 gold. However this can also mess up your game, so be patent, you can get the ULTIMATE weapons.

I'm pretty sure this is a glitch, but it is useful. I try not to use it for leveling my good weapons, but to each his own! Good luck!

Easy Boss wins

Dran: First start with Xiao, run around and shoot Dran. Dran will land somewhere in the middle, so then switch to Toan. Run up about 3feet away from Dran then press n hold x until he flashes(dont let go of the x botton yet) walk up to Dran and let go..
There will be a sort of cut scene after he talks to you.

Forest Guardian: Pretty easy to beat.
Note: If are already on the stage where you fight the guardian then skip on to no.2

1.)Use the seed that you got from the mushroom house, put it into the dirt on the last level of the forest. Stairs will grow out of the dirt(stairs are made from the leaves)go up the stairs..

2.)Switch to Goro and use the battle axe.(switch to a attribute for more damage)Run up to the guardian and wham him with goro's axe. He will then sit down, Press and hold the x botton and let go when he flashes. Keep on reapeating that method until he is defeated.

Ice Queen: First go to the jokers and buy 12 fire gems(you only need 10 but what if threw it the wrong way?You'll need extra gems to help you defeat her) Then go to the ice queen, hide behide a pillar( I prefer the on on the far left; the left pillar when you start to fight) Switch to Ruby and lock on to the ice queen (turn your attribute fire) and shoot at her until her shield is gone. Then put all your fire gems in the pockets (three pockets that are on the left when you open items) Switch to Toan and lock on her again and throw the fire gems at her (locking her to a corner works the best)
Once she falls down a cut scene will appear after that you acquire the orb.
Note: If you screw up don't worry start again by pressin the restart button on your ps2.
Note: The reason why I asked you hide behide the pillar is because of the icy blasts that the queen shoots at you. Once behind a pillar, the blasts will only hit the pillar not you.

The king's curse: Use Ungaga and use his special( the whirlwind attack) when the coffin's black smoke comes out, after the smokes gone switch to Toan and slash the coffin until he shields himself again and black smokes comes out again. Do the same method again until he is defeated.
Note: There will bw duel to get on the ship.

Minotaur Joe: Only use Toan for this one, run around with dran's feather so he doesn't hit you that easily. Wait until barrels comes flying out of the crowd, Minotaur joe will take one of the barrels of wine and start drinking it fast. Go behind him and slash him in the butt. Keep on doin that method (like 4-6 times) and he'll fall down.
Note: Use stamia drinks if you dont any drans feather.

Dark Genie: The hardest of all, the only part that you can lock on to him is on the 2 Phase.

Note:Use toan for phase 1 and 3 only, use ruby for phase 2.

Phase 1: The genie will stick his arm into a portal that he's on. The same arm will come out of the ground dodge it then press triangle. Look at his arm there is a eye on it, look at the colour of the eye, switch it to the attribute of the eye's coour. Slash him !! He'll swith eye colour's every now and then. So keep on doing what I said and you'll be on the second phase in no time at all.

Note:The genie will blow a indestructable wind at you in phase 1 n 2 be aware...

Phase 2: He'll shoot a purple beam at you at the top of his eye. Switch to Ruby (switch Ruby's best ring to thunder or whatever colour is on the eye) When he's about to shoot at you, run to a place that is about 2 feet away from the beam. Then shoot him before he shhots at you again.
Every time you shoot at him like that he will blow the wind at you and you'll lose about 1/4 of youe health or more. So I Advise you to buy lots of premium chicken and stamia drink. Use the Stamia potion when he attacks you and you wont lose 1 point of a health. Keep shootin him and eventually he'll go to his last phase or form.

Note: The last phase he turns into a Dragon, and in his mouth is the white pearl. Buy 3 reviving powders in case toan dies out on the last phase.

Phase 3: Toan will be automatically be fightin the beast first. Put your dran feather out start running like berserk around the small dark room. This is becausehe will shoot a beam that will follow you for like 10 seconds. When he finally stops he will unleashe a paw attack dodge that and slash him on the white pearl of its mouth. Do this 3 times and he will Die.

Note: When slashing the pearl, go behind it and slash like berserk until he's head goes up again, then start running again.

Thanks to all the readers!!Have Fun with Dark cloud!!

Easy Escape From Explosions And Poison

First of all take lots of Antidotes. Then, when you get to a large chest where you have to guess the trap, always guess Poison or Explosion, unless you know the correct answer. That way, if it is Poison, you will be safe. If it is Curse, Curse ain't so bad anyway. If it is Explosion, as soon as you see that the trap was an explosion, and you press "X", run in the opposite direction. The Explosion will only reach where the treasure chest is, and won't harm you! Then, you may just waltz up to the Chest, put in the right answer, and proudly claim the prize you cheated for!!

Easy Fishing Points

First purchase some poisonous apples and go to the oasis in Muska Racka.Now use your poisonous apples as bait.You can get around 150 fishing points for one Mardan Garayan.After you catch your first Mardan Garayan you can purchase a Mardan-weapon for 2500 fishing points.Mardan Garayan can also tell you the right trap to choose
when openning a big treasure chest.
Note- May take awhile.This is very useful for building-up your weapons since one gem costs 100 fishing points.

Now purchase or steal some potato cakes and get some other fishing bait for example(a throbbing berry).Wait till dusk and go to the oasis.To make sure there is a Baran Garayan in the water use a throbbing cherry. If the fish is going for the bait it isn't a Baran Garayan.A Baran Garayan is worth about 250 fishing points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Note- It takes alot longer to capture a Baran Garayan than a Mardan Garayan.You get no
Baran-weapon

The last way to get alot of fishing points is to purchase or find some carrots.Now go to the Peanut Pond in Matataki Village and use the carrots as bait.You will notice that only one fish likes the carrot.That fish is called an "Umadakara (I think)".One Umadakara is worth about 100 fishing points.
Note- It is the easiest fish to catch out of the three.You get no Umadakara-weapon.

Free Backstage Passes

There is only one stage in the game where you can get as many backstage keys as you need for the dungeon level. In Queens, there is a fish merchant that will sell you all the Flapping Fish you want in order to get to the Shipwreck back floors. However, make sure you have Ice Blocks to keep all these fish fresh, otherwise they'll turn rotten. This is by far the best way to gain better abs and stronger items early in the game, as all the other dungeons require random chance to get backstage keys.

I remember this happened every time I tried. Defeat the 'last boss' the first time. When it transforms into the second form, let Toan die. Immediately switch to Ruby or Xiao (cat girl), with your best elemental weapons, and enter first person mode.

While your character is blinking (invulnerable for a few seconds) in first person mode, they don't stop blinking until you exit first person mode. You can attack the boss all you want without being hurt, as long as you have the firepower to injure the enemy.

High-Abs Monsters

I've noticed that in most Dark Cloud dungeons, toward the end monsters will give pounds of abs apiece, (werewolves are mentioned several times) generally 12-15 (still double when found in the back level) these are the following dungeons I know to have such supercharged creatures:
Wise Owl Forest (Werewolves only)
Shipwreck
Sun & Moon Temple
Moon Sea
I know demon shaft creatures give more abs in normal levels than these critters in back levels, but they are also far more powerfull than they're weaker relations.
Wise Owl Forest Level 10 is known for it's werewolves
Finally, when abs-hunting and back-level splunking, barring Wise Owl Forest, I would generally do the later levels.

How to Beat the Dark Genie

The Dark Genie has 3 phases. For the first phase you use either Toan or Ruby with their best weapons with the highest attribute in all the elements. Eventually two hands will pop out of the ground, when this happens look at the color of the hand and match an attribute with the color. Now,for phase two you should use Ruby with a weapon that has the Holy attribute. Also watch out for his cheap shots. Just make sure your health is over 60 when he does it. For phase three you should use Toan and attack the jewel in his mouth.

Mardan Garayan

This fish is worth a lot of FP and when you catch it it tells you what the trap is in all locked chests. To catch it easily, buy some poisonous apples and go fishing in Muska Racka. Look for the biggest fish there and it will probably be Mardan Garayan.

Toan's 2nd super attack.

Did you know that Toan had a cool 2nd move?
To get it you must arrange Nolun Village to how people want it and kill Dran :
My house = Looking at the house.
Macho's house = Near the dungeon.
Pike's and Paige's house = Near the pond.
Old gaffer = Surrounded by houses.
Claude's house = Near Alnet's house.
Alnet's house = Far from the Macho's house.
Aunt Laura's house = Far from the mayor.
Hag's house = In front of Dran's Windmill.

Then Dran will come flyingand he will teach it to you.

Tons of Free Items

This is a cool little trick that's easy to do, and can give you tons of free items you'll need, but can be fairly time-consuming. This is done in Norune village. The first thing you make sure you don't do is (and this is really important in Norune) is to NEVER set up or finish Gaffer's Buggy until you're done with Norune Village. When you put it up, the mayor stops giving you items, and you'll need his items to get this to work.

As soon as you get the Hag's house finished, she will store items for you. About 60 in all, I think. The trick is to get the free items from the mayor, and then take them back to be stored. You can do this as much as you want, all the way up to 60 total items.

Weapons

There are 4 "ultimate" weapons for the main hero, Toan. Three are built up and 1 is found. In order of greatness they go Sword of Zeus<Seventh Heavean<Chronicle Sword<The Chronicle 2.

And the fastest way to get a chronicle sword(which is the best weapon you can build up) is to level up a Lamb Sword.
