Lunar Silver Star Story Complete Walkthrough and FAQ Revision III MistaKefka@aol.com -------------- Revision I Update This guide was written in great haste just to give people tips on what to do at the end of the game since there arent any guides written that far yet. It has many typos, mistakes, and was written all on memory in one sitting after playing the game one time. Bear with me, I will complete it some day. !#@!@##!@#!@#@@#!!@#@!#@!@!#@!# This is a guide that Im writing to aid people in Lunar SSSC because there isnt a guide out yet that covers until the end of the game. After a while Im gonna finish it, but not right now. For now, Im gonna type just enough to get someone through the end of the game and then finish it later when I have more time. Ive beaten the game already, and I had trouble in some places. This guide will solve that. ------------- Revision II Update Well, the guide is out, and alot of people are getting through with Lunar, but Im still getting alot of questions about the game. That's why I'm now taking the time to go back, finish everything, complete the walkthrough, correct typos, organise, etc. Enjoy! ------------- Revision III Update Well, Ive figured out that my guide isnt needed anymore... There are loads of guides now, all with complete walkthroughs, so Ive decided to move my FAQ skills to a place where there is DEFINATELY a need for a great walkthrough... that game is Grandia. There is only one guide there, and its VERY vague... it also doesnt do a great job translating it. I love the game and I feel like I could write a very detailed walkthrough. Thanks for supporting me in writing my Lunar Silver Star Story guide, and Id still like you to IM me or email me any time you have a Lunar question. Thanks again. Also, check out my Grandia guide. Tell me if you like it, give me suggestions, etc. etc. etc. -------------- Contents 1. Characters, Their Skills, and Cool Strategies 2. Frequently Asked Questions 3. Moderately Detailed Walkthrough (part of it) and Walkthrough* 4. Extras, Secrets, Etc. (coming soon) 5. Ending Mumbo Jumbo * by the end of the guide, I will have 3 wakthroughs: the walkthrough (VERY basic and full of errors), the Moderately Detailed Walkthrough (like I have started this update) and the Extremely Detailed Walkthrough (telling you everything about each dungeon, town, etc.) Things Coming Soon: Dictionary of Lunar Terms and Characters, Game Shark Cheat Codes, Rumors, Controls, Menus, Extremely Detailed Walkthrough Note - these things will not be included in the guide any longer. ------------- 1. CHARACTERS, THEIR SKILLS, AND COOL STRATEGIES In this section, I'm just going to discuss different things you can do with each character, their skills, and most of all, things about their personality and background (and some spoilers, which will all be marked). **ALEX** Alex is the main character in the game. He is always in your party, and is probably the best player over all, possibly second only to Jessica, thanks to her great attacks and healing magic. Skills Sword Dance - 6MP - effects one enemy - Attacks one enemy for loads of damage. One thing about Lunar is that some attacks are very useful throughout the whole game, and this is one of them. This is what you will want to use in every boss battle. Explosion Staff - 9MP - effects one group of enemies - Hits all enemies with an explosive blast. This is great against groups, but not so hot against bosses compared to Sword Dance. Flash Cut - 18MP - effects all enemies - GREAT for levelling up and against very hard random battles. It is basically an instant win. Vigor - 10MP - used on oneself - This raises attack power a good bit. This is a BIG help in boss battles; always use it once in your first turn fighting a boss unless you decide to use... White Dragon Protect - 60MP - effects all allies - Protects party from one attack and they come out unscratched. This costs alot of MP, but if you are desperate in a very hard boss fight, I would recommend it. Red Dragon Anger - 35 MP - effects all enemies - Huge fire attack that will destroy a random battle (pretty much). This is good in a pinch, but thats about all. Still, a good skill to have just in case Blue Dragon Heal - 40MP - effects all allies - Full cures all allies. GREAT! Its a big help against the last boss or any very hard enemy when you are struggling. Black Dragon ???? - 15MP - effects all enemies - Heh, I forgot the name of this attack... it sucks up all enemies for an instant win, but you get no EXP. This is great at the end of the game though, when you are at very high levels. Alex needs to be placed on the front line. He needs to attack or use very week sword magic in random battles, and use Vigor and then Sword Dance and occasionally Blue Dragon Heal or White Dragon Protect against bosses. Alex is from the small town of Burg, the birthplace of the last great Dragonmaster, Dyne. He is in awe of him, and stares at his monument all day... Maybe Alex can become a Dragonmaster too one day! He plays the occarina, and lives with his parents and Luna, a child they adopted, who he secretly loves. The designers keep Alex's personality vague, and it is a great idea, because that way you can imagine Alex to be you. SPOILERS FOR ALEX - He becomes a Dragonmaster. Luna is captured, and he saves her, and they live happily ever after. **LUNA** Luna is very helpful when she is in your party, with a huge wealth of healing spells, and some good long range weapons to equip. Skills Healing Song - 4MP - effects one party member - This is a great spell, and heals your characters basically to full (not quite at the end of the game). Purity Song - 4MP - effects one party member - This heals their status. I didn't find this all that useful, but I can see how it could be needed to win a boss fight. Cascade Song - 10MP - effects one party member - This boosts one person's attack power and defense. Very helpful against some bosses. Escape Song - 10MP - effects all enemies - Instantly escape a battle. This is mostly useless... Temptatioin Song - 8MP - effects all enemies - Puts all enemies to sleep. This is also pretty useless... Tranquil Song - 15MP - effects all allies - Heals a good bit to each party member. Very good against a boss or a tough random battle. Keep Luna in the back of the battle. She needs to heal and use her long range weapons and stay out of harm. Luna has no parents, and grew up being parented by Alex's own mother and father. She has slowly started to love Alex over the years, but it takes her a while to admit it. Her past is mysterious... SPOILERS FOR LUNA - Lunar is taken from your party midway in the game, and you find out that Luna is actually the goddess Althena in human form. She was sent to the world 15 years ago, and Ghaleon the evil mage wants to take her and use her power and take her place as goddess. **NASH** Nash is pretty useful, but he could be more so. His lightening attacks are great, but his others are terrible. He is a big help against bosses though, because you can have him heal with items and use his thunder. Skills Thunderbolt - 15MP - effects one enemy - This is great against bosses, but not for random battles. Too many MP and only hits one guy... but thats why it's great for bosses, because it takes off a good bit, especially against water based creatures. Thunderbomb - 6MP - effects one group of enemies - Great skill for easy random battles. It takes away a lot of HP and can kill weak enemies. Thunderthrust - 18MP - effects all enemies - This is what you should use on tough random battles, because it takes off alot more damage and hits everyone. But, don't use it too much, because of its pretty heavy MP cost. Spark Ball - 10MP - effects a group of enemies - This paralyzes one group. I hate this skill... never use it. Sleep - 9MP - effects a group of enemies - Also basically useless. It puts enemies to sleep. Confusion - 7 MP - effects a group of enemies - Confuses a group of enemies. Useless. Magic Box - 8MP - effects a group of enemies - Silences a group of enemies (so they can't cast spells). It is useless. Stone - 6MP - effects a group of enemies - Also useless. Stones enemies. As you can see, some of Nash's skills are terrible, but some are a big help. Keep him towards the back, and give him some healing items. You can afford to waste his turn. Nash is a student at the Magic Guide of Vane. He is Ghaleon's best student, and hopes to replace him one day as the best magician in the world. He has a cool hairdo (heh) and is dying to get Mia to fall for him... it almost never works, though. SPOILERS FOR NASH - Near the end, you find out he has been working for Ghaleon the whole time, and has reported to him alot. But, he joins you again and you forgive him. At the end, he also wins Mia's heart. **MIA** Mia has terrible attack power, but her MP is amazing and she has some very nice skills. She really helps, especially against easy random battles and hard bosses. Skills Flame Bomb - 13MP - effects one enemy - Hits one enemy with a tough flame attack. This is great for use against bosses. Flame Circle - 7MP - effects one group of enemies - Hits a group with a pretty strong fire attack. Good, but not as good as Flameria by the end of the game. Flameria - 30MP - effects all enemies - Very strong fire attack that pounds all of the enemies with fire. Great at the end of the game when Mia has loads of MP, as well as against some bosses (but Flame Bomb is really better for the latter) Power Drive - 11MP - effects one ally - Great! Just like Vigor and Power Up for Alex and Kyle, but can be used on everyone! You should use this on your attacks at the beginning of each boss battle. Ice Lance - 5MP - effects one enemy - This is good against a fire based enemy, but besides that, it isn't strong enough to do much real damage. You would want to use... Ice Wall - 15MP - effects a group of enemies - This is probably Mia's best all around attack, because it is great against bosses and random battles. Use it frequently! Blizzard - 10MP - effects all enemies - I use this at the beginning of every random battle when I am levelling up and when Mia has enough MP. It takes off a pretty good bit of HP, and has a low cost. It really shortens your battles. Ice Shell - 11MP - effects one ally - One of the best skills in the game, because you can use it on everyone, and it really helps reduce damage. Use this on everyone if you are having trouble with a boss, and you'll see good results. Mia needs to stay in the back like Nash and cast spells. You should probably give her some HP and MP healing items too. Mia is a valueable member to the group. Mia Ausa is the daughter of Lemina Ausa, one of the Four Heroes, which includes Hell Mel, Dragonmaster Dyne, and Ghaleon. Lemina is the leader of the Magic Guild of Vane, and Mia is going to take her place one day. She isn't strong emotionally, but she overcomes it in the end. SPOILERS FOR MIA - Well, there aren't many... she ends up with Nash in the end, and becomes leader of the Magic Guild... but I think most people can see that coming. **JESSICA** Jessica is probably the most valueable member of the party, thanks to her amazing skills. She also has very good attack power, and can attack multiple times like Kyle and Alex. She needs to be in the front for random battles so she can attack, and in the back for bosses to heal. Skills Heal Litany - 4MP - effects one ally - Restores about 60% of someone's HP. This is very useful, and is even used alot at the end of the game. Calm Litany - 15MP - effects all allies - This is also used alot all throughout the game, especially against bosses. It heals about 1/3 of everyone's HP. Very useful against the last boss, too. Althena Litany - 10MP - effects one ally - GREAT! This is a full cure skill that only costs 2.5x more than Heal Litany, and is a must for tough boss battles. Saint Litany - 12MP - effects all allies - Another great spell. This should be used at the beginning of each boss battle, and is a big help throughout the game. Miracle Litany - 20MP - effects one ally - Raises one from the dead, to FULL HP! This saved me against alot of hard bosses. This way, you only need one of two people to have Angel's Tear items to revive Jessica, and Jessica can revive the rest. Cleanse Litany - 4MP - effects one ally - Heals any status effect, like poison. This is an ok ability. Fear Litany - 6MP - effects on enemy - This scares one enemy away from the battle. This is good if you are fighting a random battle you might not be able to win and there is one really hard enemy. Escape Litany - 20MP - effects all allies - Teleports you to the entrance of the dungeon you are in. This is great for coming back through a dungeon, so you dont have to go through the whole thing again, plus, if you are hurting, you can leave and level up more. Jessica needs to be in the front for random battles thanks to her great attack power, and the back for bosses so she stays undamaged and can heal your party. Always keep her with good MP and HP, so that her abilities can be used. Jessica is the daughter of Hell Mel, one of the Four Heroes, which includes Dragonmaster Dyne, Lemina Ausa, and Ghaleon. Her father doesn't know how wild she is, but she is always sneaking away and things of that nature. She is a student at Althena's Shrine, where she is learning to be a priestess. She is always fighting with Kyle, her ex boyfriend, but really she loves him (she would never admit it). SPOILERS FOR JESSICA - Once again, there really aren't any. She gets back together with Kyle at the end and they live happily ever after. **KYLE** Kyle is a great character, and has alot of power and HP. He has decent MP, and some pretty good skills. Overall, definately a good addition to the party. Skills Power Slash - 6MP - effects one enemy - This is Kyle's main attack. It should be used during boss fights after he uses Power Up. This is just like Sword Dance, in that it is useful the whole game, costs only 6MP, and takes off a lot of damage. Power Sweep - 9MP - effects all enemies nearby - Kyle swings his sword and basically kills all enemies closeby. This is a very good attack if you are being bombarded by fierce enemies. Sonic Riser - 14MP - effects one line of enemies - Kyle sends a sonic wave at an enemy and it effects all enemies in front of him or behind him. Very good while levelling up or in tough random battles. Power UP - 8MP - effects Kyle - This raises Kyle's attack power. This is very good for boss fights, and should be used at the beginning of each, followed by Power Slash.. Kyle needs to be placed on the front line, and should attack or use a weak skill during random battles, and use Power Up followed by Power Slash against bosses. Kyle is the leader of Nanza, a town in the mountains. It is a gateway linking many areas. He has restored peace to Nanza, but he is a thief and a drunk. He is also very full of himself and always joking. He used to go out with Jessica, but now all he does with her is banter. SPOILERS FOR KYLE - None, really. He ends up with Jessica in the end, of course. -------------------- Now, here is a list of the characters that join your party as part time members: Ramus - Fat Ramus has pretty good attack power, but no skills. He leaves near the beginning of your adventure. He is your best friend from your hometown of Burg, and is always trying to get "filthy stinking rich." Laike - Beret clad Laike is a mysterious character, and his past is revealed only at the very end of the game. He has amazing attack power and can basically win a random battle with one attack. SPOILERS FOR LAIKE - I'm not going to tell you! It's too good of a surprise! Tempest - Tempest from the Indian town, husband of Fresca, is a great warrior. He helps you find the Black Songtress and the Black Dragon. He is a great addition to the party for the short time he is in it. Skills Flash Arrow - 8MP - effects a group of enemies - Strong attack that hurts alot of enemies for alot of damage. Very useful. Flash Wind - 10MP - effects all enemies - You instantly win the battle, but get no EXP. This is good to use while trudging up the fairly difficult Black Dragon Shrine. Ghaleon - The mysterious mage from Vane is in your party for a short time while you escort him to the White Dragon Cave. He has great skills, and you can slaughter anyone using him. Skills Inferno - 14MP - effects all enemies - A huge fire attack kills all of the enemies. Nitro Dagger - 14MP - effects all enemies - An ice attack that kills all of the enemies Tornado - 10MP - effects all enemies - A tornado picks up and drops all enemies, and once again, kills all of the enemies Rock n Roll - 10MP - effects all enemies - Huge boulders nail the enemies and, you guessed it, kills them all. Next update, I create a dictionary with all of the Lunar characters, not just the ones in your party, as well as the places in the game. ----------------- 2. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS This portion of the guide will cover every question anyone has every asked me about Lunar, so there is no need to answer again. Please check this before asking me a question. 1. How do I get through the Red Dragon cave? Well, once you get in, you cant get out. However, it shouldnt matter because there is a point in the game where you go down or up some stairs and the dragon heals you. That way, you can level up there as much as you want. When there is fire, you must go through it to keep going. The bosses at the end have given some people I know some trouble. First, use my LUNAR BOSS STRATEGY which I use on every boss. First, have Alex use Vigor. Then, have him use Sword Dance every time. Have Kyle use Power Up and use his sword attack for 6 MP over and over. Have Jessica heal every turn and attack when everyone has full HP. Have Mia cast her defense up spell on Jessica and whoever else, and then have Nash and Mia match their attacks to the enemy (fire for ice, ice for fire, etc). If you still cant beat it, just level up. Thats the universal cure to all RPG problems 2. How do I beat Ghaleon? Use the all mighty boss strategy. Also, give everyone at least one healing nut, several silver lights, and several revival items. Go all out, cause you wont need anymore MP, HP, etc. Always be careful, cause its a LONG fight, and if you get to the very end and then die, youre gonna be mad. Also, after you beat Ghaleon, make sure you read the following: (SPOILER ALERT... BIG SPOILER) Make sure you use your occarina to play your song going up the stairs. Trust me on this one. I didnt do it the first time, and had to beat Ghaleon again... I was very upset. 3. Where do I go after the singing city? Go to the right of the city, and you can travel along the coast down to the town below. You shouldnt go through the forest just outside of the hick water city, because the enemies are very hard and give little EXP for that level. Tackle that area later. 4. How do I get the monster for the inventor in Iluk? Go into the garden and dont think anything of it when the bugs run away. Youll come to a clearing at the end and when you defeat the group of puffy bugs there, you will get the bug automatically. 5. What do you have to do to get to the top of Myght's Tower? To get through the first room, you have to go through the doors in a certain order. I don't want to give away too much in the FAQ section, so I won't give you the complete answer, but I will tell you that you go through the top door last. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out from there. 6. How do you get through the final stages of Althena's Tower (the last dungeon)? There are dragon icons and you have to step on certain markers corresponding to different dragons (the ones you meet to be Dragonmaster). On all of the floors, either step on the markers in order of which you met the dragons, the order in which you must step on them (on some you arent allowed to step on panels in any other order). On one floor, however, it tells you the order to step on them. 7. What percent is the first disk or second disk of the whole game? I would say the first disk is about 80% of the game, and the second disk is the other 20%. When I reached the end of the first disk, I thought I was very close to the end, but really, I had another 6 or 7 hours to go. 8. How long is Lunar? I beat it the first time in 37 hours, but many people beat it in about 20 to 25. They might have either lied, used a guide, cheated, or have played the import, Sega CD, or Saturn versions previously. 9. Why is Lunar so good? Lunar is a classic Sega CD RPG that has been copied many times. It has a traditional yet still innovative and fun combat system, and a VERY cool anime style story. The remake of the game is even better, yet I've heard that the Sega CD soundtrack is a little bit above the new one (and judging from the only song on the original soundtrack I've heard, the battle theme, it's true). Everything about Lunar is great, and it is probably my favorite game ever. 10. Should I get Lunar or Star Ocean 2? These games both came out right next to each other, and while I'm waiting to finish my Lunar guide (or at least get close) before I get Star Ocean 2, I do have Star Ocean (the original for the Super Famicom) and unless SO2 is a million times better, it isn't as good as Lunar. Lunar is the kind of game I like. Star Ocean 2 is probably great in its own ways, but you can't go wrong with Lunar. Every RPGer should play this classic game. 11. I'm supposed to play the Occarina so that I can get to see the ending after I beat Ghaleon but the Occarina is in Nall's inventory and I can't switch it! This is a bug that happens when you use a save game from the demo with Lunar Silver Star Story for the Playstation. WWW.WorkingDesigns.COM has the answer to all of your questions concerning this matter. 12. What are all of the version of Lunar Silver Star and its sequel? Lunar Silver Star was released in 1992 in Japan and 1993 in the US for the Sega CD Lunar Eternal Blue was released in 1994 in Japan and 1995 in the US (I think) for Sega CD Lunar Silver Star Story was released in 1996 for Sega Saturn in Japan Lunar Silver Star Story Complete was released in 1997 for Sega Saturn in Japan Lunar Silver Star Story Complete was released in 1997 for in Japan for PSX and 1999 in the US for PSX Lunar Eternal Blue was rereleased in 1998 for Sega Saturn in Japan Lunar Eternal Blue is soon to be released in Japan and later the US for Playstation Lunar Silver Star is the original Sega CD version. Lunar Eternal Blue is the sequel. Lunar Silver Star Story is the remake with a lot more anime and a new soundtrack with updated graphics and a changed story. Lunar SIlver Star Story Complete is the same as Lunar Silver Star Story but with anime that covers the entire TV screen, not just most of it. You could use the Sega Ram Pack for that game on the Saturn. Lunar Eternal Blue remix has some new anime and updated graphics, but the game is mostly the same. I hope that explains everything. 13. When will Lunar 3 come out? Game Arts, the developer of Lunar has said that they might make a Lunar 3, but they are not yet sure (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE). 14. What are some good games that are similar to Lunar? First and formost, Grandia. This is made by Game Arts, the same company that made Lunar, that was released on the Japanese Saturn in 1998. It will be released on the Japanese Playstation this July, and will be released on the US Playstation later (hopefully this year). It's a great game that is very similar to Lunar, however I don't think it is quite as good. You also might want to try some lighthearted anime games translated by Working Designs, the Lunar translation company, like Popful Mail on Sega CD, Magic Knight Rayearth on Saturn, or Alundra on Playstation. If you have any more good questions, please email me at MistaKefka@aol.com -------------------- 3. WALKTHROUGH, AND MODERATELY DETAILED WALKTHROUGH (unfinished) This is the Walkthrough section. When the guide is done, I will have 3 walkthroughs: the walkthrough (as shown below), the Moderately Detailed Walkthrough (even farther down), and the Extremely Detailed Walkthrough (coming later in another installment). The Walkthrough is very quickly written, and has little detail. The Moderately Detailed Walkthrough is much more organized with some substance, but it doesn't reveal everything. It is just to be used when you are stuck. The Extremely Detailed Walkthrough tells you exactly how to get through every dungeon in the game and all of the secrets. It will be included later when I am bored stiff and have nothing to do :o) Sit back, relax, and enjoy... Before I start, I have to give you the ultimate key to Lunar: Kefka's Patented Lunar Boss Strategy, or KPLBS for short. KPLBS is a foolproof way to beat almost any boss in the game. Here it is... First Round - Have Alex use Vigor, have Nash use Thunderbolt, have Mia use Power Drive on Alex, have Kyle use Power Up, and have Jessica use Saint Litany. Second Round - Have Alex use Sword Dance, have Nash use Thunderbolt, have Mia use Power Drive on Kyle, have Kyle use Power Slash, and have Jessica use Calm Litany Then, have Alex use White Dragon Protect and Blue Dragon Heal when you have to, have Nash use items when you have to, have Mia cast Ice Shell on everyone and then use Flame Bomb, and have Jessica ressurect and use Althena Litany when she has to. Wah la! (or... whatever) WALKTHROUGH (the most basic one) Walk down and to the north east of the town where you can go to the spring and see an anime. Leave and go to Alex's house. Then go get Ramus at the entrance. Leave and go to the east and south, and go into the White Dragon Cave. Level up for about 30 minutes and use the Statue at Burg when you have to. Then, procede through until you get to the Dragon. Talk to him, and go to the west. Go into the room and make the sasquatch's hit the ice and let you take the chests. Get the ring and go back to the Dragon. Give it to him, and exit the cave. Go back to Burg and go to the Statue like Nall instructs, and then go to the Item shop. Leave and go to Alex's house in the north west corner of town. Then, go find Ramus near the entrance and try to go through the forest. Ramus will run away, and youll have to go back. The next day leave and Luna will clear away the fog. When you get to a certain point, youll be attack. I would not take the man's help if you think you can handle one or two battles, and then take his help for the last. Youll still get EXP and you wont die. After you camp, leave the forest and go to Saith. Talk to the captain inside the room by the dock and he'll spill his guts after a while. Go to the bar and play with Brett. Youll lose, but thats ok. Ramus will catch him cheating and you can leave. However, you have to go through an old lady's forest to talk to her and get your map. You also get to see a cool anime with Nash. Also, keep talking and you can get rid of that lucky cane which eats up an inventory space. Leave and go back to Saith. Talk to the captain, and you'll have to fight a boss. Use the boss strategy with as many Thunder spells as possible and you should be able to beat him (make sure you equip your guys with some Star Lights). You get to listen to the cool music on the ship and buy a few bars of soap at the shop (you'll want it later). Have some lengthy scenes and eventually youll be at Meribia. Go to the shop just south of the Statue to meet with Ramus. Then, go to Black Rose Street to the west and go in the house at the far end of the street and see a scene. Then go into the Castle and meet Hell Mel and see an anime. Leave and go visit Ramus, and after a scene youll have to go through a dungeon. Save and level up and go through the dungeon. When you get to the stairs leading down, get all of the chest and equip your guys to the best and save before talking to Dross. Talk to him, fight the easy boss (use the strategy) and see a scene. Leave and Nash will come visit you. Exit Meribia and go west and south. Go to Transmission Springs and you'll have to go the Althena's Shrine. Meet Phacia and get the application and go to Vane. Walk around and visit the library and the shops (especially the library... heh). Go to the Magic Guild and after the scene go to Mia's room upstairs on the west side. Youll get to see an anime. After the scene, go back with Nash to meet Ghaleon. Then take Luna to go meet Mia and leave. Exit Vane and go through the mountain pass to the south and enter Nanza. Go talk to the main operating the western gate and track down Kyle to see a funny anime. Then leave to the west and go through the rest of the moutain pass. Go to the town of Lann and go into the house in the south where youll see an anime and meet Jessica. Leave and go talk to the boat owner on the dock to the south west. Go to the Island, and don't open the chests that are out in the open because they are traps. Try to go on the blue as little as possible, and level up if you need to. Work your way to the north west of the place and youll see a house. Save, and talk to the man. Beat the boss which is pretty easy if you use KPLBS, and exit the dungeon. Go back to Vane and talk to Ghaleon. Take Alex and Luna to Meribia and talk to Hell Mel. Then leave on the boat to Burg. Go talk to your parents, save, etc. and go to the Dragon Cave. Work your way through and see some cool scenes and interesting plot twists. Then go talk to Laike by Dyne's Monument and use the Dragon Wings to visit Meribia. Save Jessica and see the scene in the castle. Then, go to Vane and help Nash and Mia beat the boss, which isn't too tough. Then, go to Nanza and see a cool scene and get Kyle in your party. This will be your party for the rest of the game. Then, walk to the south gate and go through the mountain pass and go to Reza. When you walk through the city, someone steals the Dragon Wings. Go to the bar, and talk to everyone. One of the people will tell you about getting into the Thieves Guild. Leave, and travel south and then east along the coast and youll find a forest along with a spring near it. This has a goddess statue, so use it. Go into the forest. Level up. Use the statue when you need it until you are very powerful and continue through the forest and on to Meryod, a water town. When you go across the main bridge, it breaks. Find all of your party members and find Kyle in the bar. Leave, and go back to Reza. From there, go to the thieves bazarre inside one of the houses in the top left portion of the town. From there, go to Iluk to the south. Talk to the inventor in his house. Leave and go down the stairs in the middle of the town and talk to the gardener so he will let you in his garden. From there go to the garden, and I would recommend levelling up. Work your way through the garden and youll come to a clearing. From there, fight the group of puff bugs and youll get the one you need automatically. Take it to the inventor when you feel powerful enough, and he'll give you the balloon to take you to the Red Dragon Cave. Take the balloon to the cave, and dont save. Make sure you can make your way to the place where the Red Dragon gives you full HP and MP, and then level up as much as neccisary. When you reach the end, youll have a confrontation with one of the 3 sisters (Royce I believe) and you will have to fight a boss. They arent too tough, just use the all mighty boss strategy and use as many ice spells as possible with Mia, and heal every turn. Youll be fine. Then, procede into the Red Dragon cave where you get another item and the Dragon Anger spell (VERY useful). Leave that area (you might want to use a Dragonfly Wing to exit) and youll crash in Reza. From there, walk to Meryod again. When youre there, you can go across the once broken bridge. After you go across, buy weapons and leave. Dont go into the woods as you exit. Save them for the end of the game (they are very hard and are optional). You'll reach Lyton, the singing city. You'll have to recue them from the terrible music by going through their cave, but it isnt too hard, and you can always level up if you need too. From there, go up north to the lake and enter the Blue Dragon cave. Get to the end (its VERY long, but not too tough) and youll get another item and the Dragon Heal spell (also outstanding - it saved me fighting Ghaleon). Take off from there and go to the right of Lyton and and youll have to go through a winding path to get to the next town. Youll encounter one of the three evil sisters and have to fight some fights. Then youll be saved by two mysterious warriors with bow and arrows. Keep going and go to the next town. Buy items, weapons, etc. and heal. Youll meet Laike here. Take Laike and Alex up north to Myght's tower. When you enter the tower, you must go through the doors in a certain order. Take your time and work through each combonation, and it shouldnt take very long. Procede through the hard maze (although the enemies are cake with Laike, as long as you remember to use Sword Dance on the Magic Hat enemies), and reach Myght at the top. He will agree to your proposition, and you can exit through the pipe. Go back to the town in the wilderness and youll find Tempest the Indian and his spouce hanging a man. Rescue the man and fight Tempest, and youll easily win. They are the people that recued you and they are now your friends. They quickly leave. Go out and follow them through the forest. When you get to the end, Kyle will say that the exit should be there, but it isnt. After you "look" for a minute, go back to the campsite that you passed earlier and rest. When you wake up, Indians will show you to the exit. Go to the Indian's village and youll find out they are being plagued by a "black songress". Follow Tempest into the Black Dragon Shrine and you can use him in your party. He is a big help. When you reach the top, youll have a very cool but sad story sequence and youll have to fight the Black Dragon who has been taken over by Ghaleon. Beat him (he isnt too tough) and exit. From there, take your party back to Myghts tower (you can use your wings to get to the top instantly) and he will have the airship ready for you to go into the Frontier. When you land, go into the village and work your way through the doors to the main area. Youll find a man in a house to the left who will heal you. Use it, go in the Mine and level up. Come back when you need him to heal you again. When you get into the middle of the mine and then exit it, someone gets trapped under rocks and you have the chance to go back and save him. Do it. Then finish the cave and use the statue at the end. Youll see a nice story sequence at the end and you can procede. Then go through the exit and go past the egg object and to the Grindery. An event will happen and you can go back to the Egg. Do so, and you will see a scene. Leave and go back to the Grindery. Work to the top and you will meet Taben and have fight Nash in his chicken suit. He isnt very hard if you are careful, and you can get him back and exit to the top. You get to see a cool scene, and Ghaleon operates the Grindery. Leave and get in the airship and it will take you to Vane. Do as the instructions say. After the long and very cool scenes, go into the Grindery. Work your way up (there is a healing tower mid way) and youll have to face Ghaleon. Beat him, and the game is over! Just kidding. It turns out to be a decoy. He isnt very tough though. You get to see some nice scenes, and you fight a battle you cannot win. You wake up in Meribia. Go see Mia and Jessica in the council room and go to the bar from there. Youll find Nash and Kyle. Go back to Mia and Jessica, and then back to Nash and Kyle. They will be rejuvenated. Laike will then walk in. (make sure you stop my Ramus' shop before you leave, though) Tell Laike you are ready and you will automatically go to Burg and you will see a VERY cool scene which I didnt see coming. From there you can take Dyne's sword and go to Althena's Tower. Go through it (it is pretty tough) and youll have to fight Royce and Xenobia in the order on the way. However, when you get to the area where the world map song plays, heal and save and try to get all the way up without fighting. You want to have full HP to face Xenobia. With a little luck and alot of skill, youll beat her. Go back down, save, heal, and try to go up again without being hit. When you get to the top, get all of your items in the right place and equip the best accesories. Save. This is the big one... fight the Magic Emperor Ghaleon. He is pretty hard, but if you try over and over and are always cautious, he shouldnt be too hard if youre a good player. Simply use the strategy i have at the top of this guide. Enjoy the wonderful ending... NOTE - MAKE SURE YOU PLAY YOUR OCARINA WHILE WALKING UP THE STAIRS TO SEE LUNA --------------------- MODERATELY DETAILED WALKTHROUGH This walkthrough has moderate detail. I will describe scenes, give minor spoilers, talk about where to go more specifically, about how much to level up, etc. etc. etc. BURG Party - Alex and Nall Recommended Level - 1 Watch the peaceful beginning of your great adventure, and Nall will come and find you. Walk down the hill a little bit and you'll feel and earthquake, and then Ramus will join you. You can see an anime, and then walk into the town of Burg. Explore, and you can see some funny comments from townspeople as usual. Also, you can find the house of Alex and Luna as well as the house of Ramus. Also, you can see the first statue of Althena in the game (which heals you to full). You can see the shops, but you have no S to buy anything. When you feel like you've done enough exploring, exit to the northwest across a bridge to the Springs. There, you will see a cool anime and meet Luna, your secret love who grew up with you. They talk about things including Ramus' plan to visit the White Dragon Cave. Then, there is an earthquake... Lunar eventually decides to go with you, so you should go meet Ramus over by the western (and only) entrance to Burg. Get Ramus, but before leaving, make sure you stop by Alex's house so you can get the treasures in the basement... they will help you alot in your trip. Leave and walk around the town and go to the northeast. That path turns to the southwest, and you will be at your first dungeon... WHITE DRAGON CAVE Party - Alex, Luna, Ramus, and Nall Recommended Level - 7-10 Enter the cave and Alex will use the Flame Ring he got from his father to melt the ice in your way. Enter, and you'll fight your first battle against a group of Slimes. They are actually a little challenging if you've never played Lunar and are at level 1, but you should be able to win :o) Now its time to level up... that means fight lots of battles so you get EXP and more levels and become more powerful so the game is easier. Heal with the Althena statue back at Burg whenever you have to. After you are powerful enough and the battles become super easy, try to finish the cave. Work your way to the west and go down and up the stairs, working your way back around south. Make sure you explore the areas that may look like they lead to no where (well, they do) because they have chests. Fight all of the battles for EXP and use Luna to heal. If you are still having trouble, level up some more. Once you get to the south, go east and youll be able to see the entrance through a block of ice. I'll come back to this later. Go down and you'll have to go back to the west a little, but there will be a door. Go in. You'll get to see some cool anime and good scenes, and youll meet the White Dragon, known as Quark from here on out. He tells you that you have to pass his trial... this isn't very hard compared to how far you've come already. He heals you to full. Save your game, and exit his room and go to the west. Go through that door and youll come to some rooms. Each has blocks of ice that you have to break to get through or get a chest. Lure the Sasquatch people to hit them so you can pass. You'll find some items and the Dragon Ring which Quark wanted. Take it back to Quark, and you'll have passed the first Dragon Trial and you'll have the Dragon Diamond so you can become filthy stinking rich! Now you are healed again and you can either exit the cave normally, use a Dragonfly Wing (if you have one), or use the Sasquatch to bust the ice blocking you from getting to the entrance quickly. I would recommend doing that even if you finsh it normally, because youll need that later on. Now, go back to Burg... BURG Enter the town, use the Statue like Nall says, and go to the item shop. Ramus will try to sell the Dragon Diamond, but the shopkeeper says that you can't sell it for enough here, and that you really need to go to Meribia to really get the proper money. So, Ramus thinks thats a good idea... go toward Alex's house and Ramus will pull Alex away for a man to man talk... They decide to go to Meribia together, and not to tell Luna. I dont quite remember how it goes, but eventually, you try to go through the Weird Woods to get to Saith, the port city, but you can't because of the fog. Ramus chickens out. You go back to Burg and take a rest, but Alex decides to tell Luna. Luna also makes up her mind to go with them... They go to sleep, and Luna wakes up in the middle of the night and there is a scene up at Dyne's Monument. Afterwards, its time to go to Meribia. Leave Burg and go east to the Weird Woods and Luna will clear the fog for you using her song... Hmm... WEIRD WOODS Party - Alex, Luna, Ramus, and Nall Thanks alot for reading the guide.
