Extra difficulty levels
Complete over 45% of the voice collection. Then a phrase will appear on the button in the right corner of the screen. Press this button to restart the game. You will find that new difficulty levels, including "Universal" will be selectable. The "Universal" level is extra hard, with monsters having double HP and attack power. Yikes!

Secret Store
While on Nede, next to the snow capped mountains, there should be a little diamond island just barley big enough to land your synard on. walk all the way to the end and you will enter a shop. Before going to the mountain next to it to battle the boss, buy rune armor and you will have a better chance of winning.

Cool level up quick!
We all know about forged medals. You can get them very early in the game. First do a P.A.(Private Action) in Clik. Pickpocket Filia in the town square place. Equip it. play the game normally from then on.
Sometime you should get forged medals or counterfeit medals as it says on the world map. Later on in Linga you can use reproduction on it and be trained for the Arms Tournament or whatever it's called in no time

Easier way to level up!
An easier way to level up is at the beginning of the game, after the first long conversation with the Mayor in Rena's house, go talk to Rena the next mourning in Shingo Forest. Then go to Salva and talk to every one there. When you go back to Arlia, the mayor will tell you that Rena has been kidnapped, and was taken off to salva. When leaving to go to salva, go back to Arlia. Then go back to Shingo Forest. Go to the main part of the forest, then run around. Eventually you will encounter Gerels, who split up into multiple forms, then in the battle run around until there is at least five of them. It will be tough to beat them , but if you are at least level 3 you shouldn't have that much of a problem. When you beat them, depending on how many you beat you can get up to 3,040 exp and more!(also to make it easier to defeat Gerels, use the Phase Gun, and if you have it Air Slash.)

Easy Money Cheat
To do this cheat you must have the Identify All, spectacles, and atleast 100 000 Fol.

Make your way to the Cave of Trials and reach the 6th floor where Santa can be found. If you don't find Santa on your first couple of tries its ok just exit VIA the teleporter near the exit of the floor.

When you find Santa first use Identify All to lower sales prices. Then buy as many Sage Stones as you can from him. Next, use Identify all to raise the prices. Sell the Sage Stones. You should be getting mass profits.

Getting Mischief
There is a special item in this game that is very important. Before the Destruction of Clik you can steal an item from a lady fortune teller named Filia. To do this takes some work.

You have to steal it. Which means you need the Pickpocket ability, Dexterity Talent, and a Bandit's Glove. Best to do all this after you get Celine but before you finish the Cross Cave quest.

First Pickpocketing. You need Courage and Poker Face Skills. Which means buying some skill sets at Herlie.

Also at Herlie is the Bandit's Glove. You MUST have this to steal anything. Problem is it costs 40,000 fol which at the moment may seem out of your reach. But there is a way. First start leveling up in the area around CLik. When you feel your strong head to the Cross Cave and level up (don't do the quest). Grab items, go to the save spot and head back. Then head to Mars Village. There is a forest in the back where you can level up pretty good (and get one helpful item in the beginning). Now you should have a good amount of money (10,000 maybe) but this is all preperation.

Now buy the best weapons, armor, skills, ect...and head to the Lasguss Mountains. Battle around there a bit and take the right path. Follow it and it will take you to the world map to a desert area. Here you can fight random battles with 2 enemies. These Hourglass guys and Caterpillar things. Run from the Hourglasses (very tough) and fight the Caterpillar things. They give you good FOL and rare minerals that can be sold for loads. Battle here and stay healed after each battle. When you get a lot of Damacus and Orichaleum (like 4 or 5 of some) head back and sell sell sell. You should have enough for the Bandit's Glove.

*Note you MUST save often throughout this whole quest, you will be fighting monsters you may not be ready for so it would suck to lose and have to start back up again*

Now you have to make sure you have Dexterity as a talent for your main character. If not then none of this will work. Starting off with it is random but you can start a new game and when you get a chance check the first time you can and if you don't have it restart and keep trying. If you are already kinda far and do not want to start do not worry. Depending on who your using if they have Craft then it can work. What you must do is learn Metalwork. If you have Craft all you need is Mineralogy and Esthetic Sense. Now that you have it buy a bunch of cheap minerals and start producing. After time and time you can uncover the Dexterity ability.

Now you got the Glove, you got the talent, and you got the skill. Now all thats left is to head to Clik. Save first (you may mess up) and do a PA. Head to the town square and Filia will be yapping about the end of Clik and all that. When she is done try and steal from her. If your successful you get the Mischief accessory. If not restart and try again.

Equiping the Mischief item grants you the ability to get random items just from walking!! The single most useful equipment in the game. Hope this has helped.

Hear voices you have not unlocked
Ok, to do this have at least a decent amount of voices in your voice collection.

Okay, go to "Voice Collection" on the main menu. Select a voice you have unlocked and is near a locked voice. Press X to hear the voice then right when the voice is playing go to a locked voice and play it. You might have to try it a few times. You got to do it a little fast too.
You cannot unlock any voices from doing this cheat. It is only for fun.

quicker level up trick
We all know about our little friend called "forged metals" which gives the charecter all the
experience excpet for 1 point. If you don't know about them you can make them with the super specialty skill "reverse side".
Now all's we is a "dream braclet" and some forged metals.

You start by putting the dream braclet on the charecter you want leveled up, then you use a forged metals on that charecter, after that you remove the dream braclet and you should notice that your charecter's exp. bar is longer and the exp. needed to level up reads 0. Finally you need to get into a fight and win(of course) after the exp. is given out the charecter with 0 needed exp. will gain 2 levels. Very helpful. If you need more forged metals then just copy them and use the super specialty skill Orchestra to improve chances of succeful coping. Good Luck

Rare items and easy talents
To get easy rare items from specialties and super specialties, you must first get the Violin on Disk 2. Then you must keep using Feather Pens on it until you learn the song "Hail the Goddess" (which increases the chance of making rare items). Then play the song and use any Specialty or Super Specialty, and then you might create a rare item.
The same thing goes for the Super Specialty Orchestra, which increases your chance of success at Specialties and Super Specialties, even if you don't have the talent! Orchestra also increases the chance of learning talents for characters (though it won't work for Love of Animals if you use the Familiar Specialty).

Secret Dungeon - Cave of Trials
To get to the secret dungeon of the game, you have to be at the last wisemen(at the tower). Save it right before the big stairs where you go up. Make sure you save it, it is a very important step.

Next, go all the way down the tower, head towards Fun City, go to the Battle Coloseium, then go to the audience enterance. Go around till you see this old man that talks about bringing your memories back. He asks you if you want to, say the first option on both of the questions.

Okay, he does his thing and boom, you are back in Arlia! To go back, talk to that weird animal in the cage and say "Silly Vern Vern" to go back to Fun City. Exit the village now and your Synard will show up. Get on it, then ride towards a desert island. Go where you see a pyramid, then press O to land near it. Save outside and prepare to go into the hardest dungeon in the whole game...

Make sure your people are on high levels, like 85-100+. Inside it, there is hard enemies and bosses, plus there is some awesome items in here. There are no save points, but there are two exit stars or teleport stars(whatever you want to call them) that teleport you right back to the enterance! Have Fun!!
