RRRR  ((((((((((((((((((((((((((( 1.WHAT IS THE RNG? ))))))))))))))))))))))))))
R   R===========================================================================

The RNG is short for Random Number Generator, and this is a general
understanding of what is does. THANKYOU VERY MUCH TO MOMMIEMILO FOR YOUR
CONTRIBUTIONS IN THIS SECTION!! You really were a lifesaver ^_^

The RNG is a programming method, which can be entered in to a game so when the
RNG system is prompted, It generates a Random Number, usually from 0 onwards,
Which is usually assigned to an action, which is preformed in the game. Put
simply, it randomly preforms an action, be it whether and attack hits its
opponent, to how hard your CPU opponents play. When you take Golden Sun into
account this RNG makes items appear, decides if you can run from battle or who
you're going to fight next.

The RNG Method in Golden Sun functions like it would in most RPGs. The
programmers intend for rare item drops to happen to certain enemies when certain
things are done. They do not rely on them entirely though, eg in the case of AI.
Simple example: an enemy is low on health, but they have some means of healing.
A random AI would give every action the enemy can take an equal weight, so
they're just as likely to attack as they are to heal themselves. A slightly more
intelligent AI would take in factors such as the enemy's condition, and take the
most beneficial action. In this example, it would be to heal itself.

So, most of the seemingly random actions taken in games are not so. They're
meant to be that way. Such is the case of item drop in Golden Sun. When an item
has less than a .004% of appearing normally in a limited set of fights, it stops
being a challenge and becomes plain irritating. That may not be the case for a
hardcore player, but it certainly is for the average player, and there are
more of them buying the game. This is why finishing an enemy with an attack
opposite to their element yields the item the enemy has. Granted, it probably
would have been nice of them to not make it a 100% chance of the item dropping,
but it's still better than draining your GBA's batteries for hours on end
because you want a particular item.

Computer-based RNGs require a seed of some sort. The most popular seed for
computers is the system's time. I don't doubt that the GBA library of functions
includes its own RNG with its own seed. It's likely that the actions you take
are not the seed. Rather, they alter the number after it is generated.

Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions on the RNG system and how
it works:

Q: What is the RNG?
A: Are you BLIND? Read what ive just typed above!

Q: Are you saying the RNG system doesn't do what its supposed to?
A: Oh, GOD! YES that's what ive been trying to say! You are dumb.

Q: So technically its not an RNG, because it doesn't generate a RANDOM number!
A: Well, if you want to put it that way... YES I suppose your right.

Q: Why are RNGs important?
A: Because without the RNG many games wouldn't have any challenge to them eg.
Gambling games and the such.

Q: Is the RNG really this important? Why make an FAQ about such a small aspect
in a game?
A: As mentioned in the above qustion, many games rely on the RNG to work. On the
Golden Sun box, It states the game has "Gambling References" The RNG plays a big
part in this. I guess what I am trying to say that the RNG is as important as
any other aspect of Golden Sun.

Here are some of the questions regarding the Random Number Generator Flaw:

Q: So couldn't you cheat the RNG by using the same attacks to get the same rare
item drops?
A: hmmmmmmm......YES duh duh duh

Q: Wouldn't that be cheating?
A: Yes, it would.

Q: How do you stumble upon these methods, are they easy to find?
A: To find an RNG method, you either need a lot of luck or you need to hack the
system. Don't ask me how to.

Q: These methods don't work!!!
A: Trust me, they do. Remember you need to do hard, not soft resets, and you
need to make sure you are doing everything EXACTLY the way it says on the method

And here are some other questions I found people asking me during the making of
this FAQ:

Q: Can I report spelling mistakes to you in this FAQ?
A: No you most definitely can not.

Q: One last question, why is there what appears to be an "R" where you put the
titles of these sections?
A: It stands for RNG, Stupid.

R  R============================================================================
RRRR  ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((( 3.EXAMPLE )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
R   R===========================================================================

Here is an example of how the RNG system can be used to our advantage. I will
use the well sought after K-Sword method:

The known drop rate for the K-sword normally is 1:256, but the RNG Methods means
you can get it 100% of the time. To get an RNG cheat to work, you need to reset
the RNG in a specific place. To Reset the RNG, you turn off the your gameboy and
turn it back on again. RNG METHODS DO NOT WORK IF YOU SOFT RESET (That is
pressing A,B, Select, Start and L, R I think) In the K-sword method you
(SPOILERS) reset in the first room in the Venus Lighthouse, the one with the 3
doors and the Psy Crystal.

Now the RNG should randomly generate a battle after you walk around for a while
(Not leaving the room) that should be with an Ice Gargoyle and A Fernier.

Another part of the RNG is run in Golden Sun is what attacks you choose in
battle. For this method, you must choose:

Clay Spire for Isacc
Flare Wall for Garet
Tornado for Ivan
Ice Horn for Mia
And on the 2nd turn:

Issac defends
Garet uses the Djinn Torch on Fenrir
Ivan defends
Wish for Mia

Now in this method all large attack arrows are on the Fernier. However In other
Methods this can vary.

There are many special requirements in RNG Methods. You may have to have certain
items equipped, be at a certain level or change who attacks first. These can all
effect how an RNG method works.

Most RNG Methods go for 2 turns.

And that's the example of the RNG system at its best

RRRR  (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((4.MY STATS ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
R   R===========================================================================

Due to popular demand, I will now post my stats for which I use to test these
RNG Methods. These levels are strong enough to get most of the "bigger" RNG Item
Drops and Methods off the ground. Weapons vary according to restrictions, but
along with comparing your stats to these and reading the RNG methods carefully,
you can pull anything off.
If you attempt on of these methods in my FAQ, remember to read the method
carefully, and make dijinn and item changes as necessary. Also keep in mind that
if I don't reply to one of your emails, it is likely that you missed something
in this FAQ.

Library, all of which have been fully tested. Thanks to the guys who found these
methods for the hard work you put into finding them, but remember, before you do
them, remember to switch the GBA off and on with each method, DO NOT SOFT RESET,

801 exp
433 coins


Nut : Created by Gopu
I think you have to be pretty strong to do this, because you have to be able to
kill certain enemies in one hit with three of your characters.
Since this isn't very useful I won't go into very much detail.
All Djinn should be in the standard setup(Isaac has all Venus Djinn, Garet has
all Mars and such).
Save in the top most room of Venus Lighthouse (the room with the slide and the
psynergy stone).
Shut off the game and turn it back on.
The first fight should be Willowisp1, Willowisp2, Willowisp3, Recluse.
Your first turn:
Isaac use Flint on Willowisp1
Garet use Scorch on Willowisp2
Ivan use Squall on Willowisp3
Mia use Mist on Recluse.
Now depending how strong you are, the Recluse may live, but that doesn't matter,
as long as the Willowisps die in one hit. If the Recluse survives, just kill it
with regular attacks on the next turn. If the Recluse dies, then you get a free
nut that much quicker.


Vial: Created by kafabrith.
Go to the first room in the second part of the venus
lighthouse. The room has 3 doors and a psyenergy
crystal in the middle of it.
Go through the top door back and forth 3 times.

Ok now before we go any further my above method is different from the others,
most of the other ones help you get items. My method kill the Tempest Lizard in
2 turns and is a great way to level up (I myself do my method 4 times a night)
and gain coins, not to mention potions. Keeping this in mind think of the
possibilities. There are still heaps of methods that go undiscovered, and some
can help your game a lot. I have a Method submitted by Quizer. This is a well
documented piece that shows how the RNG flaw can be flawless (get it?) in
helping you in the game.

Stat/level boosting method (submitted by Quizer)

"Ok you need to save/reset in the goma cave, first room(the little cave in
vale with the power bread inside works too, strange enough it is considered
part of the goma cave.
One of your guys should only miss 10 EXP to next level. You also need the
ninja blade for most of the time (on any one character).

just walk around until you meet an encounter, its a single skeleton. If it
surprised your party or vice versa, reset and try again. Have your guy with
ninja blade attack, the others defend. now there are 3 possibilities:

-normal attack   : will happen most of the time, results are generally worst
of the three
-weapon unleash: will happen almost as often, results are mostly sufficient
-critical hit        : very rare, results are top notch!!

note that the RNG results for critical hit aren't dependable on the weapon
the attacker is holding. so to get a critical hit, just equip no weapon on
isaac, but warriors helm, spiked armor and hyper boots to vastly increase your
critical hit chance!!!

I'll now list what is necessary to level up your guys best (you'll have to
go back to the goma cave every time one is close to lvling up, but to me, it's
worth it):

Isaac Lv  1  - Lv 19: always(i think)(haven't tried critical yet)
     8 3 4 2 4
        Lv 20 - Lv 39: same as above, everything
      8 3 4 2 4
        Lv 40 - Lv??  : no matter what you do, only
       8 2 4 2 4
                  (suppose up to Lv59, im only lv 45)

Ivan  Lv  4 -  Lv 19 : need unleash for
           7 4 4 2 4
                           try critical though, it might be worth it!
        Lv 20 - Lv39  : have isaac cast clay spire/critical for
        7 3 4 2 5
        Lv 40 - Lv??  : clay spire works no more, critical for
         7 3 4 2 5

Mia   Lv 10 - Lv 19 : need unleash, i think for
         8 4 4 2 4 (!)
       Lv 20 - Lv 39 : need unleash for
           8 3 4 2 4
       Lv 40 - Lv??  : need unleash (not sure, though) for
     8 3 4 2 4

Garet Lv  1 - Lv 19: quite everything works
         8 3 4 2 4
        Lv 20 - Lv 39: a little more difficult but unleash will do
          8 3 4 2 4
        Lv 40 - Lv?? : its a pain...
                  8 2 4 2 4

As you will have noticed, the maximum values seem to drop as you level up.
Every twenty levels the RNG patterns change (Lv20 and Lv40 Isaac are equally
easy, but if you try to level up randomly, you'll find it much harder to get

would like to thank GameFAQS for putting my FAQ on this great site.
