INTRODUCTION: [IT!]
===================

AUTHOR:
.......
I had  fun with  my  first  FAQs for "Luminous Arc" as I'm itching to  give
FAQs-writing  another shot, I picked "Etrian Odyssey" for my second one. :)

WHY DO YOU CREATE THIS GUIDE?:
..............................
I've  been  using GameFAQs.com for a long time now, it's time to give back,
and  also  the many FAQs on that site are really inspiring for me to go and
start  one  of my own, this is my 2nd time in writing a FAQs, the first was
"Luminous Arc" for the DS. OH! I JUST REPEATED MYSELF I LOVE IT!

=======================
USING THIS GUIDE: [UG!]
=======================

SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION:
..........................
I've implemented a "Search System" for this FAQs for easier reference.

NOTEPAD:
........
- Ctrl + F
- Type in the search box, example: [CT!]
- Enter

THE STYLES USED IN THIS GUIDE:
..............................
This guide will now use only ONE style since the nephew deleted my FAQs off
the  computer  (all the way up to B5F) I'm very lazy to re-write everything
in "step-by-step" format.

   THE DENOTE STYLE:
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o
  | o - REQUIRED / + - Just a reminder / X - Congratulations! |
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o

o This logo is used to denote a REQUIRED/MUST DO ACTION.
+ A friendly reminder about things that you should know.
X You've completed what is required of this floor. CONGRATS!

PURPOSE OF THIS GUIDE NOW & FOREVER:
....................................
This  FAQs is not here  to  babysit you through everything, I will not tell
you  "to  go  here, and then  there,  then  back here  blablablabla" unless
necessary  the  fun part  of "Etrian Odyssey" is the "Mapping System," it's
very  fulfilling,  satisfactory  and  rewarding when you managed to map the
whole  area  all  by  yourself.  You'd  go "YES! I DID IT"  cause that's my
reaction the instant I completed an area. :)

=================
GAME STORY: [ST!]
=================

- Taken from the official website:

In  a  vast  and  fertile  land lies a small town known as Etria a peaceful
village  that  became famous for a startling discovery. A crack in the vast
forest  opened  at  Etria's edge leading downward like a gaping maw. It all
began there...

Those  who  hear  rumors  of  the labyrinth of Etria, whether young or old,
begin to harbor dreams of exploring it.

Riches...  fame...  prestige...  all  that  and  one  more  thing  does the
labyrinth  promise:  the  true  spirit of adventure on the perilous edge of
death.

Today, like any other day in the new Etria, a youth walks through the  town
gates...

================
CHARACTERS [CH!]
================

"EO" allows you to create up to 5 characters out of 7 classes,  there are a
total  of  9 but 2 must be unlocked before you can recruit/use them. I will
make this short and sweet. For more information visit the official  website
or refer to the game's manual/instruction booklet.

MEDIC:
......
Primary  healer of the game, Medic is IMPORTANT and essential to your party
it's hard  to survive without one, so don't leave Etria without him or her.

DARK HUNTER:
............
Master of the whips they  deliver  reasonable damage and can inflict status
ailments  such  as  Poison  (skill: "Viper") but their defense is something
you will not be proud of.

ALCHEMIST:
..........
Black  Mages/Magic  Users  of the game, they can conjure destructive magics
they  may  look fierce and cool, but their defense is nothing to write home
about so unless you want  them  to go to Hell A.S.A.P. put them in the back
row.

LANDSKNECHT:
............
The  class  name  is  a  mouthful to  pronounce and kind of awful to spell,
Landsknecths  have  multiple  attacks  and  skills  to choose from and they
generally  dish out massive damage according to the site's description they
have  low  defense  but I believe if you build them right, their defense is
not something to be ashamed about.

TROUBADOUR:
...........
Their  songs  will  boost your party, skills such as "Shelter" will up your
defense while "Mercury" will increase your speed, they may not be effective
in battle  but  their songs are invaluable. If you bring them along  please
put them in the back.

PROTECTOR:
..........
The  opposite  of  Landsknecht  according to the official site;  Protectors
have  excellent  defense  AND  high  attack power, they're also able to use
healing abilities which is a +.

HEXER:
......
???

RONIN:
......
???

=======================
CHARACTERS' STATS [CS!]
=======================

From the instruction booklet:

ATK: Sum of STR and the weapon's attack value.
DEF: Sum of VIT and the armor's defense value.
STR: Affects attack power.
VIT: Affects HP and defense.
AGI: Affects turn order and evade rate.
LUC: Affects chances of finding items and also affects Critical Hit Rate.
TEC: Affects TP and skill strength.

===============
CONTROLS: [CT!]

For  a  better understanding  of  the control  scheme,  consult  the game's
manual.

===========
TIPS: [TI!]
===========

Some  general  tips  to  keep  in  mind,  these  are not "sure-win" tips or
anything but something to help you keep in check of stuff...

NOT IN ORDER:

GOLDEN: A MEDIC IS A MUST! DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT HIM OR HER.

01. Level  up as much as you can before you proceed to the next floor, this
    game  is  not  all  that  forgiving,  more  often  than not you'll find
    yourself dying many more times than your fingers could count.

02. Do not  be  ashamed  to  backtrack  to  town  to rest, re-organized and
    re-stock, the town exist to cater to you.

03. You  can  keep  track  of  your  Quests  and Missions via the Main Menu
    (Press Y) under "QUESTS," this is very handy.

04. Do  not  be  afraid  to run, if you can't win a fight then it's time to
    make your escape back to town; rest up, re-organized and re-stock.

05. Make 2 teams of versatile and varying Classes/Characters. You're given
    up to 16 creatable characters, so why not make full use of it?

06. In "EO" you'll need to distribute "Skill Points" for your character  to
    learn  skills  and abilities, how you decide to dish them out will make
    or  break  your  character, I  WILL  NOT  TELL YOU HOW OR WHAT IS BEST,
    cause this is "YOUR GAME," who am I to say "this and that is best?" BUT
    some  skills  ARE VERY IMPORTANT, I will of course inform you of what's
    vital. You can check what skills requires what skills before this skill
    is  learned by  just  going to the skill you want and press A, I know I
    somewhat  worded/phrased that  poorly,  but  you get the idea, no?  You
    WILL right? :P

07. Make  your  map  as detail as you can, you may add notes/events  to  an
    area  to  remind  you  of stuff that happened - "oh this is where I met
    that  bugger!" or "oh I'm such an idiot for adding this for fun without
    any purpose." There are many ways to customize, make full use of every-
    thing.

08. Save,  save,  and  save often you can end up losing many hours worth of
    progress  just like that if you didn't save enough, the only thing that
    will be saved when you perish is your map progress only, now that isn't
    worth a lot as compared  to  your  485451485 hours worth of experience,
    items and money farming now does it?

09. The circular thing on the bottom right corner of the top screen, is the
    enemy  indicator, blue = no problem, red = fight! So it's good to watch
    your health (Press Y) when the indicator goes red, just to be safe.

10. As you attack and receive damage; your Boost Meter will fill up,  Boost
    will  enhance  whatever attack you deliver, once activated you will not
    lose  a  turn  feel free to input any command, but it's best to save it
    for  the  last or when you're desperate, Boost Meter's bar will drop to
    0 when you leave the Labyrinth.

11. When selling off multiple item of the same type, press Y. it's so much
    faster and easier than pressing A 10 times.

EXTRA REMINDER:

Eventhough I  mentioned  earlier  that  I'm  not  here to guide you through
everything,  but I figured if there are things that requires your attention
I WILL inform and tell you of those things. ;)

THE BEGINNING: [TB#]
....................

One day  in  the  small,  isolated town of Etria, an underground forest was
discovered.  The Radha, governors of Etria issued a proclamation throughout
the continent...

Any  able-bodied  adventurer  was  invited  to  investigate  the forest and
explore  its depth. But no matter how many came to investigate the dungeons
none gained the renown they sought. As more adventurers tried and failed to
conquer it, it came to be known by a new name...

The Yggdrasil Labyrinth.

You  are  the  latest  adventurer  to  journey  to Etria in response to the
Radha's proclamation. You have but one goal: explore the forest to win fame
and fortune. Etria is at hand...

TOWN OF ETRIA: VERDA PLAZA
..........................

You'll be at "Verda Plaza" there are 7 places to go and they are:

01. The Rooster Inn
02. Ceft Apothecary
03. Shilleka's Goods
04. Golden Deer Pub
05. Explorers Guild
06. Radha Hall
07. Forest Entrance

But  you're  only  able to access "Explorers Guild" so choose that for now.
You'll  be  greeted by a man with a patch over his left eye, he's in charge
of the place this is also where you will organize your party.

   AT THE EXPLORERS GUILD:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Haven't seen you before... I take it you come to check out the |
  | Yggdrasil Labyrinth? Then welcome, friend. Not many guilds are |
  | admitting new adventurers.                                     |
  |                                                                |
  | Those  shortsighted  losers  care too much about trifles to do |
  | any real investigation. If you've got  the  guts,  you  should |
  | make a  guild  entirely for newcomers. There are loads of guys |
  | just sitting on their thumbs, who'd join any guild that'd take |
  | them.                                                          |
  |                                                                |
  | How 'bout it? Gonna make a guild? YES / NO                     |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Pick "YES"

  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Great, then  let's  get  started.  Write what you want to call |
  | your guild in this ledger.  Someday  the  world will know this |
  | name, so think carefully before choosing it.                   |
  |                                                                |
  | (YOUR GUILD NAME HERE), huh?                                   |
  | Not a bad name.                                                |
  |                                                                |
  | Now that you've got a guild, you'll need adventurers  to  fill |
  | it.  Of course you  can  go  into the Labyrinth  yourself.  If |
  | you've  got  the  stones,  then  register  your  own name as a |
  | member. More adventurers means more options open to  you,  and |
  | less of a chance of dying down there.                          |
  |                                                                |
  | Think  about  it  for  a  while,  and make sure you register a |
  | variety of classes into your guild.                            |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

I went with "Valhalla."

You'll get 5 options here:

01. REGISTER:
.............
Choose  this  option  to  start recruiting members into your guild, you can
have up to 16 members but you can bring only 5 with you into the Labyrinth.

02. ORGANIZE:
.............
Retire  and  Rest  this  option  is only available when you're level 30 and
above, if I am not mistaken.

03. FORMATION:
..............
This is  where  you  will  organize your party, who will go with you or who
will  stay  behind, also  decide  who  sits in the front and who shall take
cover  in  the  back  row.  Weak  members  should stay in the back (Medics,
Troubadours, Alchemists etc).

04. TALK:
.........
Talk about things that will not benefit you at all. LOL.

05. LEAVE:
..........
Leave this place.

Go ahead and register up to 5 people (or more if you'd like) for your party
I chose: Protector,  Alchemist,  Medic,  Dark  Hunter and Landsknecht.  You
don't have to  follow  me though whatever you choose is your call, as  they
say whatever floats your boat. :-) once you're done leave the place.

OH! SNAP! CREATE A MEDIC IT'S A MUST!

You're  now  able  to  visit  all  the  other places, I suggest stopping at
"Rooster Inn" first you may want to save your progress first?!

P/S: I named my characters like so:

Protector - Adolly (a stab at a friend's name)
Alchemist - Dil (ME! I LOVE MAGICS, ALL OF YOU WILL BURN!)
Medic - Britney GIMME MORE, GIMME MORE, GIMME MORE MEDICINES!!
Dark Hunter - Astartey (!!)
Landsknecht - Sebby (I wanted Sebastian)

   AT THE ROOSTER INN:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Welcome  to  the  Rooster Inn! We cater to the adventurers who |
  | explore the forest. Please, make yourself at home.             |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

01. Sleep
02. Nap
03. Talk
04. Save
05. Leave

No point sleeping now you'll only waste your EN $ (the currency for EO), so
just save your game. Done? Leave. Next stop: "Ceft Apothecary."

   AT THE CEFT APOTHECARY:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Welcome to Etria. You stand in the town's apothecary, where we |
  | heal  the  wounded and fallen. We also offer medicines to take |
  | with you. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!     |
  |                                                                |
  | If  you're  wounded  in  the  forest, then come back here, and |
  | we'll do everything we can for you.                            |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

01. Revive
02. Buy medicine
03. Talk
04. Leave

I  bought  three (3) "Medica" for 60 EN, you can do the same if you want, I
bought them cause I'm anxious  like that :P it's time to take our leave and
head for "Shilleka's Goods"

   AT SHILLEKA'S GOODS:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Allo!  Need  items?  Weapons?  Equipment?  I'm y'girl! Are you |
  | t'guild  I  hear  'bout wit' only new folk? Explorers like you |
  | are my best customers! I look forward t'doing business witcha! |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

"Shilleka's  Goods"  is  basically  the  place  to buy all your goods from,
weapons,  items  and  whatnot  for Shill to actually expand her shop you'll
need  to sell off your spoils (enemy dropped items) once she has everything
in  order she will inform you that she has new weapons/items/etc available.

There's  nothing  to  buy over here so leave and head for the "Golden Deer-
Pub."

   AT THE GOLDEN DEER PUB:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Welcome.  Don't  think I've seen your face in here before. You |
  | new in town? If you're going down in the Labyrinth, you should |
  | visit the Radha first.                                         |
  |                                                                |
  | Every adventure's got to go through Radha Hall  before they're |
  | officially recognized.  Sorry hon,  but  my  hands are tied. I |
  | can't  give you any work until then.  Once  you're legit, come |
  | and see me again, all right? I'll be looking forward to it.    |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

01. Accept quests
02. Report results
03. Talk
04. Leave

Well, you'll  be  wasting  your  time here, but it's nice to just check the
place out? Once done, leave and head for "Radha Hall."

   AT RADHA HALL:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | This is Radha  Hall,  home to Etria's governing body. I assume |
  | newcomers, that you are en route to investigate the forest.    |
  |                                                                |
  | However, we don't  recognize  just anyone who manages to throw |
  | together  a guild, If you wish to become licensed adventurers, |
  | first complete the mission we give you.                        |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

A new  mission  is available. Select "Accept missions" from the menu to see
the details.

01. Accept missions
02. Report results
03. Report discoveries
04. Talk
05. Leave

Choose  "Accept missions" and accept the mission "Adventurer's  initiation"

  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Your  mission  is  to  create  a  map  of the 1st floor of the |
  | Labyrinth as an initiation. Those  who  cannot accomplish this |
  | elementary task are better off staying out of the forest.      |
  |                                                                |
  | Explore the  1st  floor and map everything you see there. This |
  | method will be useful later. Here is a small town map to start |
  | you off; fill in the rest of the details as best you can.      |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Obtained Map.

  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Now go to the forest and get the details  from  the soldier on |
  | the 1st floor.                                                 |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Your  "Touch Screen"/bottom screen  will  now display a map for you to use.
Rejoice! :)

Now head back to "Rooster Inn" to save your game.

ABOUT MAP-MAKING:
.................
The  "Touch  Screen"  will  now  be  utilized  in  such a way that whatever
progress  you're  making will be recorded, this only happened if you switch
on  the  "Auto  Map"  feature  and  of  course  the only thing that will be
"recorded"  down  is  the  floor tile, as you take a step forward the floor
will  be  colored  for your convenience. The rest you will have to do it on
your own, the bordering of the walls and whatnot. It's fun, trust me :)

Try  to  make  full use of the features provided in the "Map Making System"
you have the "Event" label, "Memo" label and etc advocate them.

Now it's time to venture into the forest, select "Forest Entrance."

01. Yggdrasil Labyrinth
02. Geomagnetic Field
03. Return to town

Ignore the second and last option, pick the first.

First floor of the Labyrinth, very exciting...

LIST OF:
........

   ITEM LIST:
  o--------------------------------------------o
  | 01. Whitestone (Enemy Ambush: 3 Moles) [ ] |
  | 02. Rucksack - 100 EN [ ]                  |

  | 02. Treerat   05. Venomfly |
  | 03. Woodfly                |
  o----------------------------o

OBJECTIVES & PURPOSES:
......................

o OBJECTIVE: Map  out  the  first  floor of the Labyrinth. You will need to
             seek  out  the soldier that the guy at "Radha Hall" mentioned.
             you'll actually need to only  map  a  small amount of area. To
             find the soldier take  12  steps forward (straight ahead) once
             you've entered the Labyrinth.

o NOTE: When you enter the Labyrinth the game will inform you that you  are
        now able to distribute points to your party members, each member is
        given 3 POINTS at the beginning of the game, distribute them wisely
        and  by "points" I mean "SKILL POINTS."  I recommend that you learn
        "CURE" for your Medic. The rest is up to you.

Once you've found the soldier:

   THE SOLDIER:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As you  walk  the  narrow path, greenery all around, you see a |
  | soldier standing guard.                                        |
  |                                                                |
  | "You must be the new guys... The Radha told me you'd be along. |
  |  Welcome to the forest."                                       |
  |                                                                |
  | A few questions for the soldier spring to mind, but you wonder |
  | if you shouldn't let him be.                                   |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Ask  the soldier all the questions, it's actually some sort of tutorial for
you  to  get  accustomed  to the game. Very useful. When you're done asking
questions your map will have a red border highlighting a certain area, that
area will be the area you will need to map out. Leave the soldier alone and
map  the  whole highlighted area so you can proceed to the 2nd floor of the
Labyrinth.

o THINGS TO TAKE NOTE!:
.......................
Below are  the  things  that  you will need to "map out" and by "map out" I
mean  bordering the walls correctly and within the highlighted area, IGNORE
ANYTHING  OUTSIDE OF THE BORDER. It is not required to label your findings,
so  whether  or not you "stickied" this part with an "item point" or a memo
it  will  not  take into account towards the completion goal set out by the
Soldier.

   THE DENOTE SYSTEM:
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o
  | o - REQUIRED / + - Just a reminder / X - Congratulations! |
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o

o Made  absolute  sure  that  you mapped everything right, this means don't
mapped anything that do not exist, and get your walls right.

o There's  a  place  for  you to chop woods (resource), but you'll need the
ability  to  Chop  which  is  available  for  "Survivalist,"  "Medic"   and
"Alchemist."  There  may  be  other classes who could chop/resource? Please
label this spot for future reference.

o Resting at  an  area  on the  middle left part of the map will trigger an
inescapable  battle  with three (3) Venomflys. They're *dangerous.* This is
also  where you can chop woods for resources. You ARE NOT REQUIRED TO FIGHT
the 3 Venomflys to complete your map. Don't forget to label.

o There's a "blocked path" with a crystal. You cannot proceed.

o There's  a  "trickle  of  water" on the lower-right most part of the map,
drinking  the  water  during  the day will not have any effect, drinking at
night  though will replenishes your party's TP by 10, this is abusable, yes
perfect  for  leveling  up  and  healing  your  HP with Brit--- I mean your
Medic's "Cure" skill.

+ Pay special attention  to the  enemy "Clawbug" they're best defeated with
Alchemist's "Flame." put everyone else on defend. Mole, Treerat and Woodfly
should not pose too much of a problem for you.

+ There's A SHORTCUT  in  this  floor,  2  steps forward, turn right 1 step
forward. But needs to be "activated" from theo ther side.

+ Remember do  not  be  afraid  to  run  home to  do  the three Rs which is
"Rest, Re-Organized and Re-Stock."

X Once  you've  discovered and mapped out the area, find the Soldier and he
will  approve  and  allow you to proceed, but don't proceed just yet, let's
go back to town to do a couple of things.
...........................................................................

TOWN OF ETRIA: VERDA PLAZA
..........................
Rest up and save at the  "Rooster  Inn"  then head for "Radha Hall," in here
report  all  your  discoveries  by  choosing "Report  discoveries" then pick
"Report results"

   AT THE RADHA HALL:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | We've received  word  from  our  soldier that you've completed |
  | your map. Well done! We acknowledge and recognize your  status |
  | as true explorers from this point on.                          |
  |                                                                |
  | You  belong  to  the (XXX) Guild, correct? Let me give you the |
  | standard reward.  Take  this  to Shilleka's Goods. She'll sell |
  | you  items  necessary for your adventures.  Stock up there and |
  | work hard to explore the labyrinth for us from here on out.    |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Obtained Radha's Note/500 EN

Now leave "Radha Hall" and head for "Shilleka's Goods" choose to talk to
her.

   AT SHILLEKA'S GOODS:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Oh yeah, t'at reminds me... Y'get permission from t'Radha?     |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Show her the letter!

   AT SHILLEKA'S GOODS:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Even wit'out it, I wanted t'sell you my goods, but I  promised |
  | Radha Hall, and I stick by t'at. Here, t'is  is Warp Wire.  If |
  | y'lost, or about t'die, use it to warp  outta  t'Labyrint'.  I |
  | I tell everyone t'take some before t'ey leave for a trip  down |
  | to the Labyrint'.                                              |
  |                                                                |
  | But don't go t'hinking t'ey're free... How many do y'want?     |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Just  buy  one  is  more than enough, use it only when you're desperate, in
other word if you're 3 step away from exiting the Labyrinth, don't be super
smart  and  think  it's  cool to test out the "Warp Wire." It cost a 100 to
purchase  and  money  in EO is not easy to earn. :) now leave the place and
head for "Golden Deer Pub!" :D

   AT THE GOLDEN DEER PUB:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Back safe from the mission, I see. Well done, XXX kiddos.  I'm |
  | to  hear  about  you  from  the  off-duty soldiers. Everyone's |
  | pretty  excited.  So, am I right in thinking it's time to talk |
  | business?                                                      |
  |                                                                |
  | Here  at  the  Golden Deer,  I hear all sorts of problems that |
  | only  adventurers  can solve.  Gathering materials, wiping out |
  | monsters... You name it, I hear someone sobbing about it.  And |
  | when I do, I pass the requests on to kids like you.            |
  |                                                                |
  | You're welcome to take them on.                                |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Oh!  God,  this  really reminds me of "Final Fantasy Tactics/Advance" where
you  can  accept  quests  and stuff, I love it! And hey! I know FFT/A isn't
the only game to implement the "get-quests-from-the-pub" deal, but oh  well
:P

Choose to "Accept quests" I picked all of them:

01. The feathersmith's favor
02. To taste it once more...
03. A favor to Shilleka I

I  took  a  nap  so  I  can  savour the power of the "Holy Water" that will
replenishes  my  party's  TP to 10. Now go visit "Shilleka's Goods."

Choose to talk to her...

   AT SHILLEKA'S GOODS:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Say what? Request about t'Hand Axe? Ahh, now I  see...  You're |
  | t'ones  who  accepted  it.  Lemme see... t'artisans made me  a |
  | list. Write t'is down somewhere, okay? What t'ey need is, five |
  | pieces o'Hardwoods, and five Hard Shells.                      |
  |                                                                |
  | As you get all t'junks, just sell t'em to me and I'll pass  it |
  | along.  You don't have to do it all at once, hear?  Bit by bit |
  | is jus' fine wit' me.                                          |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

You'll need 5 HARDWOODS and 5 HARD SHELLS. You DO NOT HAVE TO SELL HER  THE
THINGS  ALL AT ONCE, you can however sell her bit by bit, meaning if you've
2  HARDWOODS  and  1 HARD SHELL, you can still sell to her first, you'd  be
of course left with 3 MORE HARDWOODS and 4 MORE HARD SHELLS to go.

AND  YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SELL TO HER. Heh! Sorry for the CAPS :P just wanted
to emphasize.
...........................................................................

BACK INTO THE LABYRINTH: THE QUESTS; THE 1ST FLOOR:
...................................................
Head  into  the  Labyrinth to complete your 3 quests as well to map out the
rest of the floor. I also level up a bit here and there.

01. THE FEATHERSMITH'S FAVOR [ ]
You will need 7 strips of "Soft Hide" which can be obtained from  defeating
the enemy "Treerat."

02. TO TASTE IT ONCE MORE... [ ]
The  very  same  place/water  that  replenishes  your TP, just go there and
inspect and this quest will be completed.

03. A FAVOR TO SHILLEKA I [ ]
Hard Shells can be obtained by defeating the enemy "Clawbug"  and Hardwoods
can be harvested from "Item Points," there are two "Item Points" on the 1st
floor  of  the  Labyrinth one is in the western area with the Venomflys and
the  other  is  on the right, did you remember to label them? You'll need a
character  with  the  "Chop"  skill  to start harvesting. Your Medic can do
this.

   ITEM LIST:
  o--------------------------------------------o
  | 01. 200 EN (Inside A Treasure Box) [ ]     |
  | 02. Medica II (Inside A Treasure Box) [ ]  |
  | 03. Scramasax (Inside A Treasure Box) [ ]  |
  o--------------------------------------------o

o THINGS TO TAKE NOTE!:
.......................
Time to map  the rest of the 1st floor,  as in whatever  you can cover  for
now.

   THE DENOTE SYSTEM:
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o
  | o - REQUIRED / + - Just a reminder / X - Congratulations! |
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o

o Another  crystal  prevents  you from advancing further ignore it for now,
label that with "blocked path" or "dead end" if you wish.

o There are three treasure boxes to be opened in the upper right hand  most
corner  of  the map, they contained "200 EN," "Medica II" and "Sacramasax."
the  enemy "Clawbug" seems to roam this area, so if you're looking for some
Hard Shells then perhaps this is the best place to look?

X Once  you've  everything in order:  Holy Water, 7 Strips of Soft Hide and
5  Hard  Shells and Hardwoods,  head  back  to  town  to complete all these
quests.
...........................................................................

TOWN OF ETRIA: VERDA PLAZA
..........................
Back in town...

o Meet Shilleka  and  sell  her  the  5 Hard Shells and 5 Hardwoods, you're
supposed to sell to her. Do not sell the "Soft Hide."

o Now go  over to  "Golden Deer Pub"  and  "Report results" you'll complete
both the  "The feathersmith's favor" and "To taste it once more..." quests.

There you go 3 quests completed.

SIDE NOTE:
..........
I created 3  "Survivalists"  each  one equipped with "Chop" I submitted all
the  "Skill Points" given  and  received  into  that skill and I am able to
chop  up to 18 times per day.  This  is a good way to make money in "EO" to
know  go  to  this  link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXGq8JaSixw) "Easy
Money  Trick,"  I  AM  NOT  THE CREATOR OF THE VIDEO! I've also thrown in a
"Medic" as well a "Troubadour" for good measure in this "money making team"

I also bought new equipments  for  my  team.  And also "Warp Wire" I bought
one,  but you can buy as many as you want. I just love saving my money.  :P

Feel  free  to level up, farm for money and items as much as you can on the
1st  floor,  before  you  proceed further into the Labyrinth. By the time I
enter  the  2nd  floor I am at level 7 to 8 for my main party, you know the
one with Britney...  Once you've reached your desired level rest up and all
that jazz then proceed to the next floor.
...........................................................................

o B2F: THE VERDANT IN-BETWEEN [02#]:
....................................
God! I lied, I said before I won't tell you to go here and there, but let's
try this format which I had in mind when I first started out this FAQs.

Okay!  B2F  is confusing... It's like a maze there's also a Mini-Boss known
as  F.O.E  (Forest. Of. Etria?) ok no!  It's an acronym in Latin which I've
no idea what it is?

LIST OF:
........

   ENEMY LIST:        F.O.E. LIST:
  o--------------o   o--------------o
  | 01. Hare     |   | 01. Ragelope |
  | 02. Venomfly |   | 02. Kuyutha  |
  | 03. Fender   |   o--------------o
  o--------------o

   ITEM LIST:
  o-----------------------------------o
  | 01. Warp Wire (In A Treasure Box) |
  | 02. Buffcoat (In A Treasure Box)  |
  | 03. Nectar (In A Treasure Box)    |
  o-----------------------------------o

HINT!:
......
o Fender is weak against "Volt." I think? Anyone wanna prove me wrong?
o Venomfly are dangerous especially their "Poison" skill.

BEGIN:
......
Place a "UP Stair" label behind you.

01. 3 steps forward a fork. Ignore.
02. Go straight ahead dead end, inspect it.

   INSPECT THE DEAD END:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As you continue  into the brush,  a  noise  ahead  draws  your |
  | attention.  An intermittent  sound  is  coming from the brush. |
  | Something seems to be inside the tall  grass  before you.  You |
  | peer futilely into it, wondering whether to chance it or leave |
  | the sound alone.                                               |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Investigate? YES / NO

   IF YOU PICKED YES:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As  a  party leader, Sebby pushed back the tall grass with his |
  | hands. Suddenly Sebby felt a sharp pain on his hand! The noise |
  | seems  to  have  come from a small snake. After biting Sebby's |
  | outstretched hands,  it  slithered  off into the forest. Sebby |
  | lost 5 HP.                                                     |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

"You  pull yourselves together and continue on the adventure." Did you  see
that?  It's traumatizing to be bitten by a small snake! I've to pull myself
together  and  MOVE  ON! LOL.  Anyway the top left-most person (first slot)
will suffer the 5 HP loss cause that person will be the leader. Label it if
you want. Though this snake drama only happen once.

03. Take 2 steps backward you're back at the fork, turn right.
04. 6 steps forward a fork. Turn right. 2 steps forward. Turn right again
05. 4 steps forward then turn left 2 steps forward then turn left.
06. 6 steps forward talk to the soldier.

   THE SOLDIER:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As you continue on the winding path, you see a soldier basking |
  | in  the  warm sunlight.  Noticing  your  presence, the soldier |
  | calls to you.  "Ho  there.  Explorers,  I see... How goes your |
  | adventure thus far?" After a brief chat,  it comes out that he |
  | is here to help those navigating the forest.                   |
  |                                                                |
  | The  soldier  offers  to  sell  you  any of his tools you find |
  | yourself in need of. Choose the item you believe you need most |
  | from the following:                                            |
  |                                                                |
  | A weapon to battle monsters                                    |
  | Medicine to heal the wound                                     |
  | We're fine thank you                                           |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Your call! I picked the first though and I got "Shortsword" for 500 EN, umm
is it a good buy? I'm not sure maybe the stuff you get differs from game to
game?  I don't know y'all.  EDIT:  OKAY SHILLEKA'S GOODS SELLING SHORTSWORD
FOR 350 EN a lot more cheaper than this bogus soldier offering you. :/

07. Turn left, depends where you're facing? 6 steps forward, turn left.
08. 3 steps forward...

   F.O.E.:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As  you  continue  your  adventure,  a  ferocious roar  echoes |
  | through the forest. Moments afterward you hear heavy footsteps |
  | galloping  through  the forest. A dreaful enemy unlike any you |
  | have yet seen is fast approaching!                             |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

"The dot on the map is a type of enemy known as an FOE: Formida Oppugnatura
Exsequens. For every movement you make, it makes one as well. Consider  any
FOEs before taking action."

Ok...  When  an F.O.E. is nearby the  "Enemy Indicator" on the bottom right
part  of  the screen will have a bar under it, the more the bar fill up the
nearer you are to an F.O.E.

09. From where you are standing, take 3 steps forward.
10. Turn right take 2 steps forward, turn right.

       OH NOES! OH NOES! OH NOES! OH NOES!

  | you really wish, you can pluck the fruit and eat it.           |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Attempt to eat the fruit?

YES / NO

   IF YOU PICKED 'YES':
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Appearance to the contrary, the fruit was fresh and juicy.     |

   THE ORANGE FRUIT:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As  you  continue  down  the  path,  you  spot an orange fruit |
  | growing  on  the walls of tree. The edible looking fruit makes |
  | your mouth water. It would be no trouble to take the fruit and |
  | eat it.                                                        |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Eat the orange fruit?

YES / NO

   IF YOU PICKED 'NO':
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Wary of the unknown fruit, you leave without tasting it.       |

X Proceed to the 3rd floor.
...........................................................................

o B3F: MARBLE ORCHARD OF SOLDIERS [03#]:
........................................
The  third  floor  have  a  lot  of doors to open and a new menacing F.O.E.
called  "Stalker,"  you're not supposed to fight it, well at least for now.

   ENEMY LIST:        F.O.E. LIST:
  o--------------o   o--------------o
  | 01. Mandrake |   | 01. Stalker  |
  | 02. Roller   |   | 02. Kuyutha  |
  o--------------o   o--------------o

   ITEM LIST:
  o------------------------------------o
  | 01. 400 EN (In A Treasure Box)     |
  | 02. Medica II (In A Treasure Box)  |
  | 03. Hide Boot (In A Treasure Box)  |
  | 04. Theriaca A (In A Treasure Box) |
  | 05. 500 EN (In A Treasure Box)     |
  o------------------------------------o

   THE DENOTE SYSTEM:
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o
  | o - REQUIRED / + - Just a reminder / X - Congratulations! |
  o-----------------------------------------------------------o

Place a "DOWN stair" icon behind you.

o THINGS TO TAKE NOTE!:
.......................
o Head all the way down (south) 7 step. Turn to your left and take 9 steps.
+ There's a couple of shortcuts on this floor.
+ Opening the box with 500 EN will drag you into a battle with a Ragelope.
+ 2 "Item Point" here both are "Take."

   F.O.E.: STALKER:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As you descend  into  a  new  floor a premonition of bloodshed |
  | sends a chill down your spine.                                 |
  |                                                                |
  | Even  new  adventurers  such  as yourself can already feel the |
  | overwhelming sensation...  It is the specter of death, looming |
  | over you as you prepare to face unknown dangers.               |
  |                                                                |
  | Take  head  Beasts  reek  of  tooth and claw run rampant here! |
  | Feeling from  these  creatures is no shameful thing.  In these |
  | depths, survival is paramount.                                 |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

So,  if you happened to be unlucky and stumbled upon a "Stalker," just keep
on  running  (ESCAPE)  you  are  powerless against it now. There will be an
F.O.E.  blocking  your  only path to lure it away, get close to it until it
turns  red,  then walk back a few steps, it will stop in its track and turn
purple, just walk around it. Find a door that will be blocked by two female
adventurers.

   THE TWO FEMALE ADVENTURERS:
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | As  you  walk  through  the  forest you come across two female |
  | adventurers.   One  has  black robes and flame hair, while the |
  | other bears a fierce look and a katana.                        |
  |                                                                |
  | "Who's there!?" demands the hard-bitten woman, one hand  ready |
  | to draw her katana. The adventurers appear to be veterans  and |
  | have made  no  move to lower their defenses. Perhaps they will |
  | relent  if  you  tell  them  that you're also adventurers from |
  | Etria.                                                         |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

Tell them you are adventurers

YES / NO

   IF YOU PICKED 'YES':
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o
  | Once you  inform them you  are adventurers, they not and lower |
  | their guard ever so slightly.                                  |
  |                                                                |
  | "Ah, Etria explorers. Didn't the Radha notify you?" The Katana |
  | -wielding  woman  realizing  your ignorance shakes her head in |
  | dismay  "We  have  orders from the Radha to guard this place," |
  | says the severe woman with the sword.                          |
  |                                                                |
  | "I  am  Ren,  a ronin and she is Tlatchga, a hexer. "Return to |
  | town at once and get the details from Radha Hall."             |
  |                                                                |
  | Ren  barks  these cold, sharp words, then lapses into a silent |
  | state. It seems you should ask the Radha official for  details |
  | regarding the situation.                                       |
  o----------------------------------------------------------------o

There's nothing much you can do here, maybe you'd like to level up a little
bit  more?  Your call!  Once you're ready, use the "Warp Wire" in your Item
Inventory or walk back and gain even more experience, I bet $1 that  you'll
opt for the "Warp Wire." :P

this game, I try my  best  to  give a relevant and accurate answer, oh, and
of  course  if you submit anything erm... Stupid, I will still put that  up
here.

Q: I've  already submitted  a  point  into  my whip skill and I've acquired
   "Viper" but I can't use it? What gives?

A: You will  need  to have your "Dark Hunter" equipped with the Whip weapon
   for him or her to use the "Viper" skill.

Q: Ew! Your guide sucks, why the hell you called it a "WALKTHROUGH" if the
   guide didn't even TELL US WHERE TO GO?

A: You're  supposed to uncover the labyrinth yourself, what fun is there if
   I  tell  you  everything step-by-step? I don't wanna kill the fun you'll
   have playing this game. Need something absolutely, fabulously  detailed?
   I recommend Zaraf perfect "Map Guide" and OatmealBob's FAQ which is just
   as awesome.

Q: What are the [ ] in your item list for?

A: Why?! It's for you to put an 'X' or 'O' it's like an Item Checklist.

A: >.<  lol! I really can't make up my mind can't I?  Anyway I try to stick
   with  one  format  throughout the guide unless I need to go into details
   then I will go INTO DETAILS. Ha! Ha.
