Completion bonus: Successfully complete the game and save when prompted.
Choose to start a new game and select the cleared saved game file.
You will begin with the money from your previous game, collected
formations, your Party SP, collected Epics, inventory and storage
items, and your Hero's name. Additionally, press L2 or
Triangle to run faster.
Hint: Fight Childerich with a different
character: When assembling your party after the siege of Stormfist,
add Belcoot, Zegai, or Richard to your active party. When you
face Childerich, they will step forward and offer to duel him
instead of the prince. If you place all three of those characters
in the party, priority goes to Zegai and Belcoot and Richard will
not appear. Note: Each will have unique dialog.
Hint: Byakuren: An easy way to get Byakuren (the giant snake that attacks
you when you cross the bridge in your Headquarters) is to have
Levi (the magician) in your party and defeat him. Afterwards he
will join your Star Of Destiny tablet. Mankind37.
Hint: George: Do not level up George because you cannot use him in
the final battle. Mankind37.
Hint: Josephine: She is in Haud after the Battle Of Raftfleet (around
there). You must have Lady Sialeeds in your party. Mankind37.
Hint: Lady Sialeeds: Do not level up Lady Sialeeds because you cannot use
her in the final battle. Mankind37.
Hint: Muraad: He will be at every place where there is a huge battle.
Keep asking him until he joins at each of the places (such as
Rainwall, Raftfleet, Lelcar, and Doorat.) Mankind37.
Hint: Oboro: When you are in Rainwall you will need him to advance
in the story. When you are done speaking with him, go to the inn
and talk to Norden. When you are done following the next few scenes,
wait until after the battle of Raftfleet. He will be there. Ask
him to join. Note: You should do the bar scene or he will be difficult
to get. Mankind37.
Hint: Skip boat sailing scenes: When you sail on a boat to a location, press Triangle
while sailing. You will skip the boat trip and arrive immediately
in your destination. Jeffrey Heiser.
Hint: Virtual immortality: The following setup basically makes you immortal.
Equip four Eyeball Rings.
Rune Slot 1: A Strike-Back Rune.
Rune slot 2: Double Edge Sword. (If the character has 2nd rune
Rune slot 3: Drain Rune. (Again if the character has an 3rd Rune
This setup will not be cheap, but it is possible to handle many
Bosses solo with it. You may need to remove the Double Edge rune
from some characters because they do not have a lot of HP. Go
to the big hole near the rotating bridge. In the area before the
ruins, the Eyeball Ring is a common drop. jrco666.
Hint: Easy money: Once you recruit Subala, store all of your party items
with Chuck. Play the fishing game against Subala at your headquarters.
When you play the fishing game, sometimes you will catch "?
Pot" and parts of fish bodies. Play the fishing game about
five or six times (depending upon your skill). Go to the closest
appraiser and get all of your "? Pots" appraised. You
can then turn around and sell the pots to the appraiser for a
significant profit. It is possible to make over 200,000 Potch
in one trip. The fish body parts are armor that you can equip
on a few characters. This is good armor to have fairly early in
the game. Jeffrey Heiser.
After the battle of Doraat (inside the castle do not advance further
than your allies), whenever you get a fight with the soldiers
you will get a "? painting". Bring along the appraisal
person to appraise it. Every time he appraises it you can sell
it for 10,000 Potch. The painting is called "The Sacred Games".

in your headquarters to trigger a hidden bath scene.
