Hint: Easy money:
Talk to the priest that saves the game and ask to give a donation. If you have less than 100 coins he will give you 10 coins until you reach 100 coins. After this happens, deposit the coins, return and repeat as needed. Note: If you try to have the priest give you more than 100 coins he will take them as a donation.
Hint: Rest for free:
Early in the game in the pub in the second town, you can rest for free. Talk to the person at the table and ask him to pass the time while it is day. You will be healed fully. You can do this until you get Katt.
Hint: Life Armor:
The Life Armor can be found in the fishing spot northwest of Gate, directly next to the cave. This is the strongest armor in the game for the Hero.
Hint: Life Bracelet:
Immediately after you fight Barubary with Ryu alone, he gives you a hint to find the Life Bracelet. Go directly right with Katt and smash the rock ahead. Continue right and reach across the gap with Sten, then open the treasure box to find the Life Bracelet.
Hint: StarBringer Sword:
The StarBringer Sword (StarrSD) can be found by standing on a blue ‘chance’ square in the Thieves’ Tomb and fighting repeatedly.
Hint: Finding Bleu:
On the same island as the Thieves Tomb go there. From the Thieves Tomb, go east until you reach the other side of the mountain line. You should see a little whirlwind shape in the sand. Enter here and talk to all the spirits, even the ones in the back rooms. After that, go to Magic school in Hometown and on the second floor talk to the girl on the left in the left classroom. She will turn into Bleu.
After you get the whale, go to the desert at the southeast corner of map. Walk around until you find a faint circle. When you enter it, you will find some ghosts saying Bleu is out. Then, go to the town where you started your game (after you go away, the second town where you and Bow end up). Go to the magic building and talk to all the students. One will say she is Bleu and join you. Bleu starts at level 35 and is very powerful with magic.
Hint: Fun with Bleu:
After you get Bleu as a party member, go to township and make sure she is not in your active party. Go to her room, which on the last floor and final room. She is sleeping. When you talk to her, she mumbles about Ryu and goes back to sleep.
Hint: Finding Ryu’s father:
You can find your father in the Grand Church. His father is the man that is connected to the machine in the Grand Church. When you fight him, do not kill him when he tells you to. Kill all three of the eyes around him, but do not kill him. Do not even hit him. If you do not kill him, he will be alive and free from the machine that was sending his energy to the Demon Deathevn. After you defeat the three eyes around him, he will fall out and will transport you to your town. You will then go down to a basement with machinery. You will have to find the girl in Guntz behind the books. You can then make your town fly.
Hint: Namada’s Strength:
Boombada is a powerful Non-Elemental attack, which at 50 AP will reduce any enemy group, short of Bosses, by 50% of the current enemies’ HP. However getting this attack is not easy and requires strict timing and rhythm. To get this powerful attack go to Namada after the Grand Chruch at Evari is destroyed. Help the brother at the bells ring to announce prayer time. This is where it gets difficult, as some of the notes of the music sound overlapped but they are not. The brother will ring the high notes and low notes as you ring the Drum (A) and Tuning Fork (B). It sounds complex, but is not. The scale is similar to:
– = High note
_ = Low note
A = Drum
B = Tuning Fork
() = (space) No note played.
-A-B–()A _B_A__()B ___B_-AB _-_-A( )A
Listen carefully to the way the notes are played and to the starts and stops of the sounds. If done correctly, the brother will thank you for helping him and request that you talk to him again with the person who he will teach Namada’s Strength to. It is recommended that Nina get this to fully round out her abilities.
Hint: Monster Island:
Once you have the whale or the great bird and are at least level 35, go to the top of the hunk of land where granny’s house used to be. Go directly east. You should see an island at the top of the screen. Go there to reach Monster Island. There are four monsters on this island, as well as a house with Bo and Karn from Breath Of Fire. Use the following information to defeat the monsters that can be found here.
Gonghead: This is a giant version of the creature. Do not waste AP on it
