Game+" option. Play your cleared game file to begin with
all skills, money, friends, links, and some items from your first
playthrough. Additionally, talk to one of the journey pigs in
front of any town to access the Dragon Lair cave.
Hint: Bonus training weapons:
You can do training by hitting the wooden targets.
Complete the training mission by finishing all twenty rounds to
unlock a weapon. The new weapon varies, depending on which weapon
you are training with. Training with sword will give you the Evil
Sword. The spear will give you the Medusa Spear. The 2 hand sword
will give you the Grand Saber. The axe will give you the Icicle
Axe. Also, when you do mission 19 for any of these, it will give
5,000 experience points. With two training devices, the experience
is worth 8,000.
Hint: Getting Lenneth Valkyrie:

Lenneth Valkyrie join your party.

Hint: Defeating Aphelion The Silver Dragon:
Use the Arbitrator and do not use the sword you find
in City Of White Nights. The best team consists of Gil, Serva,
and Ganz (for non-human side). Aphelion regains HP; you should
be at least level 50 to 60 to take out more HP from him. When
you can use Limit Break, do so. He is very difficult. You should
also have 30 to 45 Herb Extracts, 20 to 25 Herb Extract DS, 10
to 25 Herb Extract Max, 20 Sages, and 5 to 10 Celestial Nectars.
Learn these command from books Use Volty, Circle and Life Song.
Do not use any links. It may take 20 to 30 minutes to defeat him.
You should also equip Samurai Armor (found at Goo's Armory if
you are playing the non-human side at a cost of 60,000 Dagols)
for a good defense. Always stay in the back of him -- his moves
mostly attack from the front. Allow your party to attack him mostly.
If your life is low and it hits you, the game will end. When you
get a full Volty gauge, unleash Limit Break.
Hint: Defeating Leonard and Natalie:
This battle may only occur if you chose to follow Ridley
rather than report to the castle, although this fight may be replaced
with other characters. It is highly recommended that you have
all the skills on your weapon. For example, use a non-elemental
weapon like the Rune Sword, which is two-handed. The reason for
this is that you will really want the second Volty attack in this
battle, and the great thing about the Rune Sword is the ability
to petrify enemies while attacking. First, prepare yourself with
plenty of healing items. If you do not know where to go, head
to the Dark Elf village via the Journey Pig. Have your Volty gauge
set at 100 before the fight. If it is not, wander around and kill
things. Also, if you are close to leveling up, do so. When you
are prepared for the battle, go into the fort and go through the
intermission sequence. The duo will attack you at the same time,
but Natalie is very difficult. Concentrate all your power on her.
Lock-on if you want to be sure not to direct attacks at Leonard.
You can also try to petrify Leonard to worry less about your HP
dropping. Unload your second Volty attack on Natalie the first
chance you get. This will take away about 70% to 80% of her HP.
Then, just block and counterattack. Be careful not to hit more
than once, because Natalie will most likely take out like another
180 to 220 HP or more from you while you are doing a combo. Then,
just do counterattacks and Volty attacks every time you get 10
Voltys and she will go down fairly easy. You now only need to
worry about Leonard, who has about the same amount of HP as Natalie
but does not do close to as much damage. The purpose behind this
is that Natalie has a Volty attack that does serious damage. It
may even be a one-hit kill for a lot of characters. Make sure
to use healing items or a heal command before the match ends.
Use the following trick to defeat Natalie and Leonard with a single
handed sword. Depending on your level, this can be difficult due
to Natalie's VoltyBlast attack. Have Cross Slash set as your primary
attack, as you are not going to be doing many combos in this battle.
Also have your Volty Gauge close to 100 if possible. Concentrate
all attacks on Natalie, as she is much stronger than Leonard.
The best strategy is to guard, then counter after Natalie strikes.
Do not start up a combo because she will hurt you badly. Continuing
to block then counter to slowly drop Natalie's health to the point
where you can use your VoltyBlast to take off about 250 to 300
HP, depending on your weapon and level. If you see flames coming
out from around Natalie, get away from both of them and use whatever
you have to heal to full life. Any commands that increase defense
will also be helpful. Avoid getting hit until she either uses
her VoltyBlast or some other command that uses the points. If
you survived, heal and continue the strategy of block and counter.
When Natalie is dead Leonard is not much of a threat. Use the
same strategy to defeat him in a few minutes.
Hint: Easy money:
Once in the bedroom and you have control of your character,
you can kick the left desk to obtain ten coins. You can also kick
the two beds to obtain additional items. Afterwards, leave the
room, and kick the guard outside. You will receive one coin. You
can do this for an unlimited amount of times. If you have a controller
with an auto-fire feature, you can set it overnight to accumulate
Hint: Easy stat increase:
Get a fairly strong team based on ym team (for example,
Jack level 37, Lily level 37, Cesear level 41, and Flora level
32). You must kill a certain amount of ants. After a large amount
of ants has been killed you will come across a strange looking
bug. In fact it is the mother ant. Kick it and initiate a fight.
You will soon be surrounded by seven or eight fire ants and the
queen. this is a difficult battle because they create a link and
burn you. If you defeat the queen ant you will get a berry for
each stat. From then on, after killing ten ants a queen ant will
appear. Kill the queen repeatedly to get your stats to the maximum
with the berries that you will win.
Hint: Tamaki Nami sings theme song:
Witness Tamaki Nami's transformation and immediately
speak with her in the Night and Desire Street at 6:00 p.m. She
will join you. Do not have her in your party, then visit the Red
Lotus Bar at night. Tamaki Nami will sing the game's opening theme
Hint: Star Ocean series
When you are able to join the Fighter's Guild and
you get Jack's Room in Radiata Town, notice a pair of red boots.
They resemble the "Santa Boots" from the Star Ocean
Notice Gantz's appearance during events that feature him throughout
the game. His outfit will begin to resemble that of Claude from
Star Ocean 2 during the intermission sequences.
When you are able to roam around the castle again after Ridley
has joined the fairy creatures, go to her room. There will be
a ghost on her bed. If you go to the ghost, you will wake up in
your bed back under the bridge wearing Claude's uniform from Star
Ocean: Till The End Of Time. It gives you HP regeneration.
Hint: Valkyrie Profile
After completing the game you have the opportunity
to go through the Dragon Lair Cave. Once you finish that, you
can go through the Corridor Of Distortion. Then, you will fight
your father. After that, you will fight Lenneth Valkyrie, the
main character of Valkyrie Profile. After you fight and
recruit her, you will face an interesting character whose name
is Lezard. This is Lezard Valeth from Valkyrie Profile
After that, you will face Gabriel Celeste, another hidden Boss
from Valkyrie Profile. The final and toughest Boss, the
Ethereal Queen, also seems to be modeled after Iseria Queen, also
from Valkyrie Profile. Note: All of these characters, with
the possible exception of Lezard, also appear in Star Ocean:
Til The End Of Time.
