Dark Assembly Combat

When passing a bill in the Dark Assembly by force, you can eliminate combatants who voted nay by throwing them on top of a stronger demon who voted yea. The hostile demon disappears and the supporting demon grows stronger. As long as at least one decent level demon supports your request, you can pass any request even at low levels.

Easy Level-Ups

Requirements:
Strong Sword (Cosmic Blade, Diabolic Sword,etc)
Winged Slayer (sword special)
High enough demon rank at Dark Assembly
Stronger Enemies Bill(if needed)
Weaker Enemies Bill(if needed)
Cave of Ordeal Bill
Get to episode:Captain Gordon Defender of Earth.

Go to Stellar Graveyard and enter Valgipus IV. Then you'll see the enemies in a giant sqare. Use winged slayer on them and you'll gain like 3-10 levels and 11,000 hl. You can use the stronger enemies bill for more exp and hell.


Go to Cave of Ordeal and enter cave no.3. Use the same stratgy above.

easy leveling

Before doing this your main char. needs to be between 25-30, and you need a wind mage thats about 20.

Buy a decent amount of SP potions, and then go to Jotunheim, Terrible Cold
Combine all the enemies and they should be about 140. Put the high level monster (created by combining ALL of the monsters on the map!) on the green square (this is the only square on the map that does not provide "Invincibiliy") and keep attacking the monster with all of your characters until it gets down to about 50-200. Take the character (MUST BE OVER 15 AND HAVE GOOD ATTACK AND HIT!!!) that you wish to level and let them finish them off for many levels!!!

You can get a ton of levels if you do this repeatedly and you can get even MORE levels if you get the "Triple Exp" passed by the Senators (DO NOT DO ANY MAP IF YOU GET TRIPLE EXP PASSED)
This is a great way to level any character that is below 50-70 (2 examples of how effective this is...)
1. A level 7 Scout leveled to 28 without triple exp
2. Level 24-26 Laharl to level 41 with triple exp

Easy Money

In Episode 13, The Gargantua Deck level allows you to pick up high level items quickly. As the aim of the level is just to get one character onto the yellow square on the far side of the map, simply stack a couple of characters and throw them to within walking distance. You won't get any HL, but you will get an item or about 5000 XP. You can then sell the items, and, if you lose low level characters, level up a little whilst doing so.

Easy Weapon mastery

This takes a lot of time to prepare for if you are just starting out. You will need up to 1900 armasters, and a two people with a lot of counter(Majin is the best choice). Just equip the weapon you want with all the armasters on the Person and have them on a stage with invincibility and constantly attack with them. You will see a great increase in weapon mastery kinda quickly. As for magicians, best choice is Midboss's first stage on the +1 attack and have them heal or decrease an ally or enemy(this takes a whole lot longer but worth it if you want to use a staff with Flonne

Fast Ninjas

A Ninja with high speed and nine or ten movement is a great addition to your team, particularly if plan on completeing many item dungeons (since they can simply walk over to the base panel in fewer turns than any other character, and dodge any attacks on the way).

First, try giving them three pairs of good shoes, to up their movement by three. You can give them another movement point by reaching a certain level at the Dark Assembly, then passing the more movement bill.

When you have time, try levelling their shoes. Fill them with as many coaches as possible Coach's (the power doesn't matter, just the number - ie, if the population of the item is six, fill it with six coaches of any level), then head through the item dungeon, being sure to kill any and all item Generals, Gods and Kings. Leave after every ten levels (the game will give you the option) to heal and save. This should add quite a few hundred points of speed, making your ninja untouchable (although they may start dodging healing spells, too. -_- )

Learning from the...pupil?

To have a character learn an ability from their pupil, have the two stand next to each other, and let the master use the ability until their mastery of it reaches level 1. How long this takes varies from each character. Once they reach level 1, the master will be able to use the ability whenever they want.

There are some great locations through-out the game and one place that is really helpful at the beginning is the Blazing Core 1st level.
Just throw all the monsters together and then weaken it till it has a tiny amount of damage left and then combo attack it with the weak character you are levelling up and they will grow many levels!!

Powerful Clerics

Create a cleric (females have slightly better stats) and give her a mage pupil. If they stand next to each other, the cleric can use her pupil's spells, and after a while she'll be able to use them by herself. Give her the best staff and your best intelligence boosting items, and you'll be able to smash through anyone. Her range is fantastic, too, once you've begun to master the staff.

Combo + Boost Cheat/Glitch

When doing Combo Chains (Various characters attacking/connecting enemies together, to get a boost to power, and bonus guage, when killing enemies), I have found that even if you KILL the enemy that is supposed to link the chains together, providing your next character will hit at least one other enemy in that chain, you still get the Combo+ Chain.

Ex. - A spear user kills a sprite that is standing next to a zombie. Your next attacker in the chain (like a Mage), uses a multiple target spell (3 square spell) that was to connect the now dead sprite, to the zombie. The sprite may be dead, but since the attack grid square is still going over the spot that held the sprite, the combo chain isn't lost. This saves a lot of hassle.

NOTE: Doesn't work if the next attacker to succeed is now incapable of hitting anything on their attack grid, that connects the now empty grid spot, and other enemies. The chain gets broken.

File this under glitches.

BTW: Didn't see this submitted, but it might have been.
