Sub Quest 7: Pirate Asterisk

Availability: Before going to Grapp Keep.

After speaking to Datz, the next part of the sub event is not shown on the map unlike the previous sub quest. You need use your ship and go around an area with a lot of fog. ( Note: The locations I have seen it spawn is in southwest to Grand Ship and north of Grand Ship) The location can vary each time. When you are near the fog, an event scene will occur, in which your party encounters a ghost ship. Choose the second option to board on the Ghost Ship.

Note: Some dialogue can change if you choose to complete the Swordmaster side quest or obtained the Susano-o summon before finishing this one.

Ghost Ship SS "Funky Francisca"

Speak to Barbarossa to trigger the boss battle.

BarbarossaNormal45000War AxeBacchus's Wine

Resistance: WaterWeakness: Lightning
Barbarossa is a pirate class that relies heavily on BP skills to dish out high damage on your party. Often Barbarossa likes to save 2 BP before using his big attacks. If you have decent gear and a Special ready, you should be able to take out Barbarossa when you used up all your brave command in one turn. If the attack does not take out Barbarossa, then treat the battle as like your previous boss battle, default and attack.

Continue with the main story by moving to Grapp Keep, which is located in the northeast region of Eisenburg.

Grapp Keep

Grapp Keep has a layout of three floors, you can access each are simply by pushing the lever in each area. Once you have reach to center area of the second floor, saved the game and fight boss right ahead. Obtain the poison sample and return to the battle fortress on the center of Eisenburg and speak to Goodman. After this event, you can now start the Performer sub quest.

Treat the three Automaton as a regular grunt unit with massive HP. If you have the Valkyrie or Summoner, you can easily wipe out the boss with your attack all skills after spamming your brave command. If you're playing in hard mode, you will be fighting three Automation at once, which can be extremely dangerous if the boss all decided use Rocket fist at the same time.

Sub Quest 8: Performer Asterisk

Availability: After obtaining the Poison Sample from Grapp Keep.

Return back to the battle fortress in the center of Eisenburg and speak to Captain Goodman. Select the third choice. Watch the event between Praline and her soldiers. Leave Eisenburg and travel to Grandship. Enter the bar and speak to the Old Lady highlighted with Blue Exclamation mark and then talk to another old man within the same area that is also highlighted with a Blue Exclamation mark. Leave Grand Ship and go to the following city in order and speak to each of the NPC highlighted with a blue exclamation mark.

  1. Ancheim (Desert City in the southeast continent)
  2. Caldisla (First City)
  3. Florem (Flower City in the northeast continent)
  4. Hartschild City (City by the Volcano In the West Continent)

After you have finished this task, return back to Grandship and speak to the old lady at the bar. Return back to the Fortress in Eisenburg and speak to Captain Goodman and choose to the 3rd option to fight Praline.

Praline is a strong support unit, as a Performer class, she can buff her party, making them hit extremely hard. These grunts are very powerful and can kill your party members in a few blows, their attacks can also cause confuse. My method of wiping out Praline, is to use Valkyrie's Crescent Moon and Judgement to dish out as much damage as possible, this also deals damage to the grunt units. The summoner job class also works out very well at for killing the grunt units. A lazy and cheap way of winning this battle is to use the summon friend feature and summon the friends that can do 9999 damage to get rid of Praline as soon as possible. If you let Praline call out a new set of grunts, they have lower HP and also a different set of items to steal. (star Pendant.)

Mythril Mines

Leave the fort and head northwest to the Mythril Mines.

Inside the Mythril Mines, you need to rescue all the hostage. First you need to find an enemy grunt on the screen, they are usually around a corner or by a treasure chest. There is a total of four enemy grunts in B1, and five in B2. Once you have successfully rescue all the hostages, exit out of Mythril Cave and watch the event scene.

Now go to Fort at the furthest north.

Starkfort

Once you have reach to Starkfort, you will see an event. You can purchase items from the merchant near the right side of the map. If you're ready, go inside the Fort.

When you're inside Starkfort, there should be three stairways,on the left, center and right. The Center Path will be blocked until you have clear the Fire Temple. The stairway on the right will advance through the main story. The stairway on the left will lead you to Salve-Maker Qada. Once you have reach the second floor, you will rescue the boy Egil. You can return back to Hartschild City to continue forward to the main story.

Dr. QadaNormal30000PhlogistonDragon Fang
Hard54000
Qada has a total of three skills, one is a healing ability, the other two are attack skills that have potential to poison your party. When Qada charges up his BP, he will unleash his ultimate attack, Dark Breath. Dark Breath does the exact damage of the HP he has lost, this will do 9999 damage to one ally if you have already knock down more then 30% of his HP. But you also need to deal enough damage to him per round because of his HP regen. Have your White mages or someone with White Magic dispel Qada's regen ability.

Once you're are back in Hartschild City, go to the mansion on the center. Watch the event. Now go back to the Mythril Cave on the north. Head all the way down to the last floor, and find the door at the north center of the map. Watch the event scene, and Egil will unlock the door for you.

Underflow (Volcano Underground Cave)

This dungeon is really long, you be going around four floors to get to the next destination. There is a lot of Magma in this dungeon, each time you step on them you will lose around 10% of your HP, so equipped the Freelancer Level 4 ability "Dungeon Master". When you finally reach to 1F west you will find the hidden Fire Temple.

Temple of Fire

Inside the Fire Temple, you can find the Adventurer near the Crystal Room to save your game. Head to the Southeast area to find Fire Sage. Challenge the Fire Sage and survive his attack to learn Prometheus Flame summon spell. *Recommend you to equip the Black Mage Lv 4 Skill " Resist Fire". Once you are ready, go to the crystal room for a boss fight.

ChaugmarNormal40000Bomb FragmentReflect Ring

Resistance: N/AWeakness: Lightning
Chaugmar will start the battle with a barrier on. You will only do one damage during this moment. When the barrier is on, Chaugmar will cast its drain spell on your allies. Best suggestion is to keep using the default command until Chaugmar turns off its barrier. This will the best moment to unleash your strongest attacks on it. If you don't finish it off, it will use its Energy Burst attack, which can wipe out your entire party instantly if you not in a defending position. I would suggest using skills like Spirit Barrier from the Valkyrie job class to survive this attack if you forgot to defend.

Release the Crystal by pressing the X button rapidly, until Airy tells you to stop. Now you will gain another Support Point. Now leave the fire temple and return to the world map.

Go to central fort of Eisenburg and speak to Captain Goodman. Watch the event scene and then from here you need to go to several places. To Hartschild City, then Goodman's Mansion in Hartschild. Then go to Grandship and speak to the customer on the far west in the pub. Then go to the Inn in Caldisla, return back to Goodman's Mansion. Then go to Caldisla castle.

You can now do the Swordmaster and the Ninja Sub quest.

Sub Quest 9: Swordmaster Asterisk

Availability: Clear the Temple of Fire

Return to Starkfort, and remember the passage to the center that was previously locked? It's now unlocked, use the passage and reach to the top to fight Kamiizumi.

Kamiizumi's attacks are all counter based. He will usually do nothing until you attack him first. Kamiizumi also has a decent katana you can steal off him. Just charge up your BP and unleash it when you have it ready. Do not have your entire team to attack all at once, because his counters can deal very high damage (Around 1500 to 2000 Damage).

Sub Quest 10: Ninja Asterisk

Availability: After bringing Egil to the Inn in Caldisla.

Go to Hartschild City and enter Goodman's Mansion to see an event. After watching the murder event. There is two possible scenarios you can do here.

  • A: Interrogate everyone in the building. After the event, try to leave the mansion. Use Goodman's key and go to the basement.
  • B: Examine the body of the servant multiple times. Roughly twenty times for the next event to pop in.

Then move to Grandship to resume the main story. Watch the event in the pub, leave and go to the north section of Grand Ship. Watch the event and leave Grandship. Go to the Inn in Caldisla and get the Oricalcum from Egil. Return to Grand Ship and go to the north section, the door on the center can be unlock now. Open that door and head down.

Engine Room

In this dungeon you will need to go find two levers to activate the elevator at the beginning of the dungeon. Once you have access to the elevator, you can reach to the Engine Center. You can speak to the Adventurer and save, a boss fight will be just right ahead.

No real strategy required, just use your strongest attacks and keep your HP high and this battle should be over in a few turns. If you manage to obtain the Red Mage and Ninja job class at this point of the game. You can equip the support ability Turn Tables from Red Mage and using the job skill Utsusemi to avoid its attack and use the extra BP to annihilate the boss..

When the battle is over, watch the event scene. You can now use Grand Ship to fly to other location. If you need to use other Grand Ship options, hit the Ship icon on the touch screen. Continue with the main story by flying to the northwest region. Land there to trigger an event scene.

If you equipped the Star Pendant accessory, then you do not need to worry too much in this battle. Victoria has the ability to poison your team and if you are poisoned, then she can cast exterminate, which can deal massive damage. Victor act as more of a support unit, he does devastating single target attacks, and buffs his attack power. I would recommend taking out Victoria first and then focus on Victor.

Once you have defeated the Duo, you will get the Arcanist and Spiritmaster class.Return back to the entrance and go to the center area for a story event. When you regain control, leave the room for an event scene.

Eternia Prison

You will only have control over Edea at this moment, explore this floor and rescue your party members.

  • Ringabel is located top center.

  • Tiz is located on the bottom center.

You will also notice a treasure chest is located next to the room that Agnès is located in. You cannot open the door this room, but you can get the treasure chest by going near area next the stairs on the southwest corner. There is a hidden passage located on the bottom.

Once you exit out of prison, you will see an event scene and will be back to the Council Headquarters. Head to the elevator on the northeast. You will end up on the 47th floor. Go to the next floor, you can find Edea's room on the northeast exit. In Edea's room You can rest to fully recover party.

This mean that Braev has a total HP of a 105000 in Normal Mode and 141750 on Hard Mode.

Lester has an ability that can drain your BP and replenish his own BP. If you have a Templar in your party, it will make this battle much easier. With the"Rampart" skill, you can nullify Lester's Energy Burst. You also need to watch out for Lester's Bone Crush skill, this skill does more damage as your HP gets lower, if you keep your party members at nearly full HP it does very little damage. If you have poor luck, Lester can use his Energy Burst and Bone Crusher right after, this can instantly wipe out your party.

After completing this sub quest, you can move to the main story by going to the Everlast Tower located at the north exit of Eternia Central Command.

Everlast Tower

In this tower, you can find the Thunder Sage and learn the summon, Deus EX Machina on the southwest area at the second floor. The summon attack does about 3500 damage to your entire party, if you still have the katana "Raikiri" in your inventory, you can equip it to nullify thunder attacks.

In the 4th floor, the stairs on the bottom left corner will take you to the Temple of Earth.

Main Walkthrough: Chapter 5

Speak to the innkeeper, than talk to the King.

You will also have Alternis's diary in your inventory. You can check by it pressing the Book of D icon on the touchscreen.

Leave and go to Norende Ravine, run to the end. Agnès will join your party again. Return to Caldisla. Speak to Ringabel on the east side and then go to the kingdom's cemetery on the upper west area and speak to Edea. Return to the inn and watch the event scene. You will have access to Grand Ship again. New items and spells are available in the Grand Ship Shops.

You can also obtain the final summon "Susano-o", to get this summon you have to fly to island that is north of Florem. Land on the island and on the top area you will trigger a scene with a sage. Survive the Susano-o attack to obtain the summon. Susano-o does from 6500 to 8500 damage, you can survive this attack if you equip the ability Angel's Blessing from a level 8 white mage, but the skill needs to activate to survive the blast which is all based on your luck.

Now due to circumstances of the story, you will now be doing everything you have done from the beginning of the game again. You can examine all the blue exclamation marks to fight bosses you have previously encounter before. But beware, they are much stronger than your previous encounter. If you want to continue with the main story, then go to each of the Temple and release the crystal again.

*If you have the Vampire Job you can learn ability from the bosses in the crystal room with Genome Drain. You can automatically fast forward to the final chapter by destroying the Crystal during the crystal release segment. Just keep rapidly press X and ignore Airy's warning. Doing this will bring you to the final chapter, but not the true final chapter. However I do not recommend doing this at this point of the game, because you will be underlevel and wouldn't know about this detail in the story yet. You can fight the same sets of bosses in later chapters, however the bosses will have higher status than their Chapter 5 counterpart.

All the boss are in the exact location as you have previously encounter them. Sub bosses such as Barbarossa, requires you to release the Water Crystal before you can get the event to find him. If you defeat DeRosa, you will get the Bravo Bikini costume for Edea.

You will only have Tiz and Agne in your party, luckily all the monsters in the cave are pushovers. Once you have reach to the end, speak to Yulyana. Then leave the dungeon and reunite with your party members. Go to the remaining two temples and release the crystals. Once you have finish this task, go to the Holy Pillar and fight Alternis again.

Main Walkthrough: Chapter 6

Watch the event scene and when you gain controls on your characters, you will be back in Grand Ship. You will notice a glowing dark object in the ground, pick it up. This is the Treasure Chest Key, which unlocks all the blue treasure chests you were seeing earlier. Majority of the items found in the blue chest are probably the best items found in the game, so remember to pick those up.

Here is a list of the Blue Treasure Chest that can be found.

You can also watch another event scene by speaking to the King of Caldisla. Anyways to progress through the main story, go the temples and release the crystal. After releasing three crystals go to Yulyana's house and speak to Yulyana. Do the exact same thing as the previous chapter, and go to Vestment Cave on the west, you will find Yulyana at the lowest depths and talk to him. You can now start the Conjurer Sub quest.

Sub Quest 12: Conjurer Asterisk

Availability: During Chapter 6, after releasing releasing three crystals and have spoken to Yulyana at Vestment Caves.

Return to Yulyana's house for to find a letter. Afterwards you will need to defeat some bosses to trigger the next event. First find Yulyana in the Eternia Central Command. In the last floor the room where Braev is usually at, you will find Yulyana there. See the event and then defeat the following bosses from the order listed below.

Boss locations

Each boss must be done in chronological order. First go to Edea's room in Eternia Central Command to see an event with Alternis.

Alternis is the same as the previous boss fights from Chapter 4 and 5. The differences with this fight is that you obtain different items from him. When Alternis' HP is below 50%, he will start using Minus Strike which deals the same damage as the amount of HP he has lost, this means a guaranteed K.O on one of your party members. A way to avoid this problem is not to overused the brave command, or have either the Templar ability Rampart or the Ninja skill Utsusemi.

Head to the city of Eternia and enter the central healing tower to see an event scene.

Fighting Braev in this battle is the same as the previous chapters. You can try to steal extra copies of Excalibur from Braev. Excalibur is one of the few weapons with Light property that's worth stealing. As for fighting Braev, Braev likes to default until he has 3 BP and then spam three attacks in a row. If you have a high level monk, you can use abilities such as Qigong Wave to pierce Braev's defense. Another ability that also works is the Templar Skill "Radiant Blast".

Go to Twilight Ruins and go the last area where the Hidden Village to fight the next boss.

This is unique boss battle for this particular Sub quest. Fighting all three sisters at once is a real tough battle. You want to focus on getting rid of either Artemia or Mephilia first because they are damage dealers and also with the lowest HP. Save Einheria for last because of her high HP. Having a party member that has Holy Arts (Templar) is pretty handy for this boss fight, because the skill Rampart is useful for resisting physical attacks. Artemia's damage from her Multiburst is very random, it can hit really low when it's spread out or extremely hard on a single target. Focus on spamming rampart and healing until you manage to get rid both sisters leaving with only Einheria left. Einheria doesn't hit as hard as the other two. Which will make the rest of the battle a smooth one.

Then finally head to the last area in Norende Ravine to where the Norende crater is. Watch the event and then fight the Kobolds. Afterwards, go to Yulyana's house and defeat Yulyana to obtain the Asterisk.

This battle isn't particular hard but rather requires careful planning. Yulyana attacks are guaranteed to kill a single party member. You will need to be careful and not overused your brave command too much or else you will won't be able to revive your party. When Yulyana's use Deus Ex, he will spam meteor and can K.O two party members at once. If you're have bad timing, he can spam it twice in a row, leading to a game over. Because all of Yulyana's attack does around 9999 damage, if you want to survive these hits, the only way is to use the Compoung Ability (Salve-Maker Job class) and make the item Giant's Draft (Beast Liver + Dragon Fang) which doubles your Maximum HP. You can use other job classes like Spiritmaster's stillness to nullify all incoming damage.
