Arc The Lad Collection Tips
Back to top
To easily defeat the final boss you will need these characters; Elc, Lieza, Shu, Choko and Rai-jin.
To beef up all your characters play the Battle Arena mode in Arc Arena and defeat all of the 3 and 5 player teams to win a mega revival dust plus 9. Once you have this use the duplicate item trick so that all characters can equip 2 of them.
After you have done this use these five characters and win 50 battles in the Tournament mode of Arc Arena to win the sword from the last chest. This weapon once it has been raised to its max level at the smith in prodias and personalized to Elc at the smith in Brakia will grant a +78 to Elcs attack. With this equiped plus both mega revival dusts Elcs attack should be 200 or more depending on his level. The sword also has the light attribute so it kills the enemies who use the annoying 1HP trick.
Once you have accomplished this difficult task go to Mother Claires house in Forles and have her add the Divide spell to Elc , Extract and Super Nova to Rai-jin and Super Nova to Choko. Make sure you fight and level up enough to get Elcs Divide to level 3. You are now ready to destroy anything in your path.
The first form of the final boss has 4000HP so just use Elc to deal out physical attacks until the boss transforms. When this happens move everyone up close to the boss so that they will be in rang for the divide spell. You should have Choko in the middle Elc to the left and Rai-jin to the right while Shu and Lieza are right behind them.
This form of the boss has 9999HP but he can be easily defeated by doing the following. Choko will likely act first so use her level 3 Poko-Poko ability this should take away 550HP. Next have Rai-jion use Super Nova. When its Elcs turn yo go use level 3 Divide. This should restore most characters back to full health while zapping over 2000HP from the boss.
If you keep repeating these steps while healing every turn with Lieza you should take down the boss within 6 turns. If something goes wrong like Lieza dies (which is very unlikely with the defense bonus she recieves by equiping the revive tonics)then move everyone except Elc back and use the level 2 invincibal spell and pound the boss with Elcs powerful attacks without having to worry about counter attacks.

Chongara's abilities are unique. He summons enemies of all genera at his will. Though his monsters may not seem as useful at first, his two monsters "Raigin" and "Fuugin" can be quite a deadly combination when used accordingly.
Though it takes some time to summon both Raigin and Fuugin, once they are out, place them around an enemy, preferably a strong one. But note that they must be in a VERITCAL FORMATION (example: Raigin over an enemy, Fuugin underneath the same enemy), in order for the attack to work:
Once they are in a vertical formation, a spell will now be accessible, which can inflict more than 1100 HP damage! Death is inevitable.
Chongara also has a secret character that he can summon at only certain times. To access her, you must fight your way through all 50 dungeon levels at Alalatos, and eventually fight her. If you do manage to defeat her (good luck -- you'll need it), she will join your party and Chongara will be able to summon her, but only in certain locations.
But then, you have to go UP though ALL the 50 levels again, in order to get out. If you die, all the hours of work will have gone towards nothing! So be sure to be well prepared before going down there.
When you are able to synthesize items, buy two of any status healing item. Synthesize them to make amulets, then sell them for three times as much money than what it costs to buy the healing items.
Once the "Shingan Hoo" spell (rock spell) is cast on enemies, the "Taimakoodan" spell (laser spell) is enabled/accessible. The laser will attack all the enemies under the rock spell. Note that the Taimakoodan spell is not usable independently.
Note: Two memory cards are required for this trick. Go to the Arc The Lad Monsters Arena and save your games on both memory cards. As player one, load one memory card. Have player two load the other. Have player two trade an item from his inventory to player one. Save player one's game on both memory cards. Two of the item are now on both save files. Repeat this as many times as needed.
Note: Two memory cards are required for this trick. Copy the saved game with the item to duplicated to the other memory card. Then, start Arc The Lad Monsters Arena with two players. Go to the trading post, trade the item to the chosen player, then save only with the player that received the item. Reset the game and you will have duplicated the item. This can be done with monsters, used to sell items, and make money or duplicate certain items for quick level ups.
Note: Only one memory card is required for this trick. You can duplicate any item from Arc The Lad 2 by using Arc The Lad Monster Arena. Start a two player game. However, you do not need an extra controller since only one person can be in control at a time. When loading data, simply remove your memory card from slot one and place it in slot two. By doing so you trade items to yourself at no loss. This is useful if you get items such as full power fruit, powerful weapons, or powerful monsters. Once you trade items from player two to player one, go to the area and load the data from the card again. You can repeat this as needed. The only items that cannot be traded are personalized ones.
At main menu of the making of disk push o, o, x, square, square, triangle, o, x, square, start. Now you can play a mini game of checkers using slime pieces.
Talk to many of the people when available. If you talk to them annoyingly (over and over), they just might give you some nifty items. For example, the announcer at Needle will eventually get sick of you and will give you a book that will make you immune to all poison statues.
After your first visit to Toyoke forest, keep going back and talking to the Forest Spirit. She will keep giving you a Cure-All each time you talk to her.
