Hint: Lillia card at beginning:
After defeating the final Boss and completing Arc
The Lad: Twilight Of The Spirits, save your game. Once you
start Arc The Lad: End Of Darkness with that memory card,
you will be prompted to load from Arc The Lad: Twilight Of
The Spirits. Respond "Yes", and after it loads you
will receive the Lillia card.
Hint: Better than Cure:
Once you become a apprentice, make sure to have two
Cures and four Magical Stones. Both can be bought in town of Yewbell
for 200 gold each. Synthesize the Cure and Magical Stone to make
Cure 2. Then, use Cure 2 and a Magical Stone to make Cure 3. Once
you have done this, put the Cure 3s together to make Healing Card.
The Healing Card will refill your HP at a rate of 10 every three
seconds without wasting your card points. This will make the capture
missions very easy, because you will be able to heal yourself
just by moving to someplace where you will not get attacked for
a bit. Also make sure that you use the Magic Expert to make the
Cures and the Special Parts expert to make the Healing Card. Also,
once you find a Universal Cloth, synthesize it with the Healing
Card to make Healing Pygmy. It will heal 10 HP every two seconds.
You can also make the Healing Card and then sell it repeatedly
to make a profit of 300 gold each time.
Hint: Defeating Malademons:
You can defeat a Malademon by dodging its attacks (press
Square to dodge), keep attacking it (press X andb
dodge). Then keep doing this in a pattern: attack once, dodge,
attack once, dodge, etc.
Hint: Defeating The Chalice:
To defeat both forms of The Chalice, repeatedly use
Thunder Storm 2. However, be careful with the second form. You
must protect Ursula, and watch out for when it jumps up and starts
spewing blood then slams down onto you. Also make sure that Ursula's
Exorcist's Gun shoots it to stun it. The stun lasts about five
Hint: Get desired cards at lottery:
When you are going to use the lottery, first save your
game. When at the lottery if you do not receive the desired card,
then reload and try again. This is a good way to get all the character
Hint: Overcome dizziness:
If you get hit with a Dark Sphere 2 and get dizzy,
the best way to overcome it faster is to repeatedly move the Left
Analog-stick in a circular motion until you overcome the affect
of dizziness. You can also get dizzy by "monsters" hitting
you frequently, For example, If you get hit a lot by a Dark Dweller,
Giant Slime, Giant Ooze, Ooze, and Giant Desert Devils (only be
found in online mode).
Hint: Attack interrupts and knockdown/stopping
Each character has different knockdown and/or stopping
power. Some are so strong they can stop almost any attack. Others
have none, so monsters can hit them even if they are being hit.
Also, some characters are able to interrupt enemy attacks. Whether
or not they can do this depends on the character. These effects
also apply to magic and special moves.
Hint: Winning with Paulette:
If another player is using Paulette online and you
are also using Paulette, a good way to win is with Heat Cyclone.
If another player tries to Cyclone you, quickly step out of the
way and Cyclone them. They will not be able to escape. Try to
learn all of the characters' strengths and weaknesses.
Hint: Mission Person tasks:
To get past Missing Person tasks easier, avoid all
dangerous creatures (not when there are only Malademons in the
"room"). When you are at a "doorway" as well
as a creature, run against the invisible wall until it loses
interest in you. When you have found the missing person, you must
escort him or her to the beginning of the area. Make it past the
"room" quickly. Once there, he or she will be there
beside you with full health. Continue to the start to complete
hpaud batdwd bytuarii mbhplcr.
Hint: Easy gold:
An easy way to get a 500 gold profit each time is as
follows. First, buy a number of Fighting Travelog (300 gold each).
Then, buy the Survival Guide in twice the amount that you bought
the Fighting Travelog (600 gold each). Combine the Fighting Travelog
and Survival Guide to make Complete Combat. Again, combine Complete
Combat and Survival Guide to make Tome of Five Rings. You can
sell the Tome of Five Rings for 2,000 gold each for a 500 gold
