MISSABLES

- There are (several) missable(s) in the game.
- Jet's Humpty & Dumpty quest is missable, and has a time limit in which needs to be completed.
- Strong-Willed Shopmistress' quests have time limit in which they need to be done (items become spoiled if you take too long).
- A couple of Monster Book entries are missable (discussed later).
- A couple of ARM parts are missable (discussed above)
- A couple of Armors are missable (discussed above)
- When Zed's cameo presents you with a choice regarding certain job he should be doing, you can choose to either track him down in various dungeons he'll escape to, or do the job in his stead. Note that if you do the latter, you won't obtain Doom Bringer ARM part.
- Golden Nightingale - DO NOT SELL THIS ITEM!; otherwise you won't be able to obtain Hob & Nob weapon for Carol

Missable enemies

Observation: I think that enemies go into Monster Book if you at least deal some damage to it. When I was in event battle with 1st Muspel, I didn't attempt to damage it at all, since I knew that it was a battle I can lose and still go on. But when 2nd Muspel was defeated, I have its entry in Monster Book. Again, this is just an observation and may not be correct.

There are a couple of one-time-areas and dungeons which contain regular enemies you should not miss fighting, otherwise they won't go into your Monster Book. The areas are:
- FCB Network Studio (3 regular enemies: Stealth Stalker, Dullahan and Balazs).
- Certain character's memory dungeon (3 regular enemies: Mu, Nosferatu and Archangel).
- Locus Solus overworld, before entering Cradle dungeon (3 regular enemies: White Fear, Sekhmet and Graveshifter). These can be fought on Filgaia as well, but just take care of it while you're here.
- Cradle dungeon (3 regular enemies: Assassin Force, Hyperion and Celaeno).
- final area of the game; shortly before obtaining Exodus Orb the game warns you that by taking specific crystal there is a point of no return. If you take that crystal, save your game, and have no previous saves, you will be unable to return to Filgaia's world map, and thus never be able to complete your Monster Book (bonus dungeons, Sol Nigers, Golem-specific-enemies, etc.) unless you did so before entering final area of the game.

And now for few words on missable enemies:
- Gehenna Neros: When you're fighting Gehenna Neros, make sure you wait enough time so that it divides into an original and a copy. Defeat the copy before defeating the original to get Monster Book entry for both.
- Final foe's sword: when you fight the final boss of TF System: Tower O, make sure you wait enough time so that he uses GZ Nemesis. This will cause him and the sword to become separated. Damage the sword (critical strike from Dean will work) and then defeat the boss in any way afterwards (doesn't matter if boss grabs the hold of sword again). Same applies for second-to-last boss battle of the game.
- Azhi Dahaka fused forms: in final dungeon you can randomly fight 3x different Azhi Dahakas (they all appear in same battle). If you cast Gather on one of them so that they're all together in the same hex, they will fuse into one of three forms (Azhi Dahaka leopard-form, Azhi Dahaka spider-form, or Azhi Dahaka bird-form). Defeat this form before it casts Isolate to have it go into your Monster Book.
- Final storyline boss: depending on certain conditions, you will fight one of three versions of the boss. One is lv70, second is lv90, and third is lv100. I don't know yet what requirements are, so don't ask me about them - it is likely that whatever you do, on your first playthru you get to face-off against lv70 boss.

For now these are all missables I know of.

RARE ENEMIES

#A Chaos Champion

You can very rarely find this foe by using Teleport Orb (*after* you traded it for Lilka's) at following locations:

#1 - Warp to Orsaeos and call Asgard. At [X: 46921, Y: 83693] punch away some
stupid rocks with Asgard. Make it to [X: 41764, Y: 96189], where a strange rock formation can be found. Use TO and choose any destination (you MUST stand inside the rock formation!) to be warped to [X: 84775, Y: 42325].

#2 - Warp to Honeysday. At [X: 86348, Y: 42579] is another rock formation. Walk inside it and use TO to be warped to [X: 29825, Y: 56950].

#3 - Warp to Isolated Path. At [X: 32496, Y: 23696] is another rock formation. Walk inside it and use TO to be warped to [X: 82675, Y: 68625].

#4 - Warp to Laila Belle. At [X: 79506, Y: 80969] punch away some stupid rocks with Asgard. There you have fourth (and final) funny rock formation at [X: 87562, Y: 71982]. Walk inside it and use TO to be warped to [X: 61475, Y: 5200].

#B Creeping Chaos, Greater Beast, Vodianoi, Jumbo Bearcat

After you defeat these enemies by completing Kresnik's quest, you can very rarely find these foes at following locations:

Creeping Chaos - see info posted for Chaos Champion; you can steal Duplicators from Chaos (rare steal)
Greater Beast - world map, in front of TF System: Tower M dungeon
Vodianoi - world map, in front of TF System: Tower S dungeon
Jumbo Bearcat - world map, in front of Tartarus dungeon

#C Melchom, Grow Apple

These foes can rarely be fought anywhere on Filgaia's world map, or on the "other world map". If you're lucky enough, you can encounter both of them at the same time.

TREASURE BUG

- Warning! If done carelessly, you may screw yourself out of fighting Black Box.
- Also, this bug can only be applied on regular chests INSIDE dungeons (it won't work on Duplo chests and Power Shot chests).
- You need Fire Bullet and Power Shot cartridges.
- Save your game before attempting this.
- Train a bit by switching from Fire Bullet cartridge to Power Shot until you become comfortable by it. You mustn't press L1 or L2 buttons too fast or else you'll cause the cartridges to start spin-shuffling.
- Go to any dungeon and find any regular red chest whose contents you wish to duplicate.
- Equip Fire Bullet and face the red chest.
- Stand as far away as you can, but still close enough so that lock-on target appears on the chest.
- Now comes the tricky part.
- Press Square to fire a bullet from Fire Bullet cartridge.
- Immediately press one of left shoulder buttons enough times to switch from Fire Bullet to Power Shot, and then press Square again to fire a bullet from Power Shot cartridge.
- When done correctly, you'll have two bullets (one from Fire Bullet and one from Power Shot) flying towards the chest.
- When both bullets hit the chest, it'll get open twice, thus giving you its contents twice as well.
- If you open a chest this way, it will count as opening two chests. So effectively, you can "open" more than 362 chests... but if you do that, then you can't fight Black Box.
- In order to ensure that you can fight Black Box - open exactly 361 chests *and no more*, then go fight Black Box. Defeat it, and then open any remaining chests you have left.

QUICK MONEY

- At the shop in Honeysday buy as many Priest Badges and Silver Suns as you can afford.
- Go/warp to Mithysmere.
- Talk to Tim cameo and use all Priest Badges and Silver Suns to create Laurel Crowns - then sell those to the merchant found here for 8200 gella per badge for profits. Repeat the procedure as needed.

Note: Using Melchom to farm money sucks. In the time it may take you to encounter one Melchom, you could probably make at least 5 "transactions". As for Charybdis in Tartarus - eh, you have Teleport Orb, so you'll be even faster.
