Thanks, Retade ------------------ Introduction: ------------------ Star Ocean: The Second Story Is a unique Role Playing Game for the Sony Playstation. Star Ocean: The Second Story is unique in its battle system, skills system, emotional system, and story. Star Ocean: The Second Story is really the Second Star Ocean game, the first Star Ocean was released on the Super Famicom in Japan in 1996. The first star ocean was a 48 megabyte cart, and used everything on the Super Famicom. Star Ocean was made by Tri-Ace, an published by Enix. Star Ocean was a vary unique game, just because it is so original for a role playing game. Almost every role playing game to date has a turn- based battle system, but Star Ocean created a vary unique active-time system where everyone attacks and uses the abilities at the same time, making strategy and formation a big aspect in the battles. Star Ocean: The Second Story begins 30 years after the first Star Ocean left off, when Ratix and his friends destroyed Jie Revors and restored peace tom the world, and cured the Roakians of stone disease. Claude son of Ronixis, who was made a hero by the federation for his work with Ratix in destroying Jie Revors. The story begins with Claude on his fathers ship and later on a away mission. Star Ocean: The Second Story was made by Tri-ace, Who has made other great games. Please check out there webpage at http://www.tri-ace.com ------------------ Walkthrough: ------------------ ---Chapter 1: The Journey begins--- When the game begins you will make some choices in sound , battle system, and difficulty (note: you must get some voice collection to get the difficulty option) After the opening story, you wake up in a forest which is called Shingo Forest. Go south and a girl is attacked by a monster. Now you must fight this monster. Boss: Gark HP: 2,000 No strengths or weaknesses This is not a really hard boss, you can damage Gark with you Phase Gun killer move. Just keep shooting the phase gun until he dies (about 3x). After you beat Gark The girl will run away, and you have to go after her. When you catch up to her she will introduce herself as Rena Lanford and thank you for saving her. You and Rena start walking about the town. On the way back, Rena asks where Claude is from, and cloud says he is from Earth. Rena asks what he is talking about, and Claude tells her not to mind, and just says that is far off land. When the two enter the town , Rena tells Claude that this is her hometown, Arlia. Rena tells you that she is going back to her house, and tells you to visit around the town and get to know the place that she lives. Arlia Items in Arlia: Rose hips, Leather Armor, 200 fol, Resurrection bottle, Strawberry jam, blackberry Pickpocket Data: Blackberry, 10 fol, Rainbow Diamond, Sour Syrup, 100v, Blueberry, 24 fol, Stone, Inchigo Jam, Resurrect bottle, fried eggs, Vegetables, Necklace, 100 fol, silver cross, 120 fol, Idaten Ship. Go around the village and collect all of the items in the chests. Finally go to Rena's house (in the east area town, in southeast corner), Rena will introduce you to her mom, Westa. After some talk Rena will give you a tour of the town, all you have to do is go in all of the houses and Rena will tell you about them. Now go back to Rena's house and after some talk you will be upstairs in a room go out and take a walk around the 2nd floor (note: you can not get the chest in Rena's room right now). Now go back downstairs and talk with Westa and Mayor Regis. After the talk you can go to the Mayor's house (the one on the far right) and spend the night. In the morning Mayor Regis will give you a long sward and tell you that you should go to Salva, to get more information (note: you can now rest in the Mayor's house any time you want by talking to the maid). Now go back to Rena's house and go into Rena's room and get the chest that you could not get before. Now head to Shingo Forest and talk to Rena. After talking to Rena head out of Arlia through the north exit. (note: As you leave there will be a boy by the gate that will tell you not to stray from the road or you will run into monsters and be forced to fight. I recommend that you get used to fighting in the outside world). Salva Items found in Salva: Heavy Ring, Rena's Hairpin, Portrait B Walk around town, and talk to everyone. Go to the weapon and armor shops to get some new equipment, you'll need it for the upcoming dungeon, and some healing items if you have enough fol. Then go and get all of the chests you can find. Now head to Mayor Alen's house (note: the Mayor Alen's house is in the north part of town, and it is to the east the big house). Talk to everyone in the house and take all of the chests you can find. As you leave Alen's house Claude will complain about not being able to get back to Calnas. Now head Back to Arlia. When you get back to Arlia you will be informed that Rena has been kidnapped by Alen. Now head back to Salva again. On your way to Salva I recommend that you Level up (level 5 or 6 is fine). ---Chapter 2: The Rescue--- In Salva head back to Alen's house and go into the first room on the right, pick up Rena's Hairpin and then move the Statue in the right hand corner to reveal a secret passageway. Salva Mine Items found in Salva Mine: Rose Hips, Blackberry x 2, Iron, Gold x 2, Spectacles, blueberry Enemy's found in Salva Mine: Funnythief, Kobold, Lizardaxe, Vopatbunny After entering Salva Mine You will come upon a save point (note: you should be about a level 6 if your not go back and level up in dungeon). Also you are usually warned about a boss by a save point. The boss in this dungeon is not vary hard if you levels are high enough. If you find signs about the dragon's nest, you can't enter it now. After you save head north and you will enter a strange room with an alter to which Rena is tied too. You will now have to fight Alen. Boss: Alen-Tax HP: 400 Weakness: light Alen is a really easy boss just because his HP is so low and you will have Rena on your team to heal you if you get ingered. After the fight Alen is back to normal and apologizes. After some talk Claude and Rena Return to Arlia. In Mayor Regis's house Claude and Regis will talk and inform you that Rena is not really Westa's daughter, and that Westa found her one day in Shingo Forest. Then Regis will also tell Claude that he wants him to investigate the Sorcery Globe, Claude agrees. Regis then tells Claude to sleep, when Claude is about to sleep he here's something hit the window, so he goes out on the porch and finds out it is Rena. Rena tells Claude to come down and talk to her when you go down you will have to go and meet her at the bridge and they will talk. The next day you will be told by Regis to go to Cross Castle and get permission from the king to go to the EL comtonet. Rena will now join your team permaintally. The next day go to Salva and talk to Alen to get the Ring of Happiness. Now head to cross castle. ---Chapter 3: The Magic Treasure Hunter--- When you get to Cross Castle, it will be night time, so head to the inn (the north west house)and talk to the innkeeper and she will let you stay in the in for free. The next day you can Wonder around cross freely. Items Found In Cross Castle: Woodshield, Leather Helm, 500 fol --NOTE: if you want Opera to join your party, you must have seen the special privet action here. To see it, execute a single privet action, and walk north, toward the castle. When you get in front of the castle a man with three eyes will run into you. He excuses himself, and then runs off again. YOU MUST DO THIS PRIVET ACTION IF YOU WANT OPERA TO JOIN YOUR PARTY LATER IN THE GAME. You don't have to do this privet action if you want Ashton in your party. Now you should head to Cross Castle When you enter Cross Castle talk to the Receptionist and register your name, and she will then give you some time to explore the castle and get the chests. After your done getting the chests, go and talk to the guard by the kings chamber and he will let you in and you will finally be able to talk to the king. When you talk to the king ask him all three choices, the king will then send you to investigate the Sorcery Globe. The king also gives you a passport and 600 fol. When you get back to the main area of the town you will see to wizards fighting, after some talking one of the wizards decides to join your party in order to investigate Cross Cave and get the treasure. You have two choices, the first is to let her join, the second is to not let her join. Any of the choices will make her join you though so it does not matter what one you choose. Now go to the stores and buy some black and blue berries for your journey to Cross Cave, you may also want to buy some skills from the skill guild. I don't recommend buying any new equipment though (especially if you want to buy the bandit gloves for 40,000 fol, which allow you to pickpocket later in the game). Now head to Cross Cave it is a Mountain with a cave opening. Cross Cave Items Found in Cross Cave: Sweet Syrup x 2,Artemis Leaf x 2, Lavender x 2, Cure Poison x 2, ?Mineral (Rock), ?Jewelry(Reverse Doll), Stink Gel, Feather Pen, 600 fol, Resurrect Mist, ?Item(Aquaberry), Blackberry x 2, Tri-ball, Magic Canvas, Iron, Green Beryl, Heart Barrirs, 700 fol, Ancient Writings --Enemy Info: Alraune, Armedknight, Landworm, Slime All of the Dungeons in Star Ocean2 are like this, you may need to make a map I your head to make things easier. The enemies here are pretty easy, most of the can be taken out by just a few normal attacks from Claude, but make sure Rena and Celine have enough MP though. At the North area (where there is a save point), an event occurs, and a secret passage is revealed to the west. Now heal up and save, then head into the next room in the room there are five chests, 3 are normal items, 1 is the treasure, and one is the boss chest (NOTE: the boss chest is the upright most chest), the boss in this cave is actually optional, but I recommend that you fight to gain a lot of exp and fol. Boss: Gargoyle x 2 HP: 1,500 (each) Weakness: light The Gargoyle Should not be too hard. Just keep using Claude's normal attack. If you need to you can use shooting stars, killer move. Have Rena Heal everyone when needed, and have Cline use ray. Just keep pounding them and they will be gone. After the battle leave the cave. When you reach the exit, the party will split up, and Claude will ask Celine if she wants to join the party. Now is the real thing you have two choices: 1)Come with us, celine 2)It isn't a good idea after all I recommend that you take Celine in your party because she is a strong spell-caster, but it is up to you. Whatever you chose now head to click it is a port town on the north edge of the continent. You will have to go over a bridge to get there, and it is a pretty long walk from Cross Cave. ---Chapter 4: The Fate of Clik--- Clik Items found in Clik: Lyre, Vegetables, Grain, Seafood There are many great items that you can steal from people in Clik, but you normally won't have the 41,800 fol you need to buy the bandit's gloves nor the special pickpocket specialty at this point, so you will probably pass these things up. If you do build your money up to 41,800 fol then you can even steal from Philia in the privet action, this will give you a special item, so if you build up your money get it. After going around and buying some skills and equipment head to the captain of the ship and he will tell you to walk around. When you enter the main part of town a little thief will steal your wallet, now go back and talk to the two kids near the east ship, now go to the first area of the town and you will find the thief near the bar. After some talk, Ketil will give you a tour of the town now, first go to: -Kentil's house, in the first Clik area, center house -On the way to Fountain plaza -Crepe shop near the fountain -Ice Cream Shop, Southwest of fountain -Restaurant, near the exit of first area -Clothes Store, Northwest of fountain After you visit all of these places talk to the kids in the port, finally Ketil will be able to play with them. Now talk to the captain and he will tell you to do a last minuet check, go back out to fountain plaza, then a earthquake will occur. You automatically go to the hill north of fountain plaza, talk to the captain and you will get back your passport, now head up the stairs and a tsunami will occur. Talk to ketil here then leave the hill. Your next destination is Mars, a town to the east, but not as far east a Herlie. Mars Items in Mars: Silk Robe, Sour Syrup, Purple Mist, Silence Card Now go and get any chests you can find, if your ready go to the house west area of town. The elder of Mars will tell you that the children were kidnapped by bandits, and they want 500,000 fol and the Book of Secrets. You will also find out that they hired a swardsman called Dias and Rena Recognizes him. After some talk Rena dicedes to leave your party and join Dias. Now you should go to the Item Shop and buy about 20 blueberries and some blackberries, you will really need them because Rena is not in your party anymore. When you go to the store don't buy the Flame Blade as you will find one in the forest. Talk to the elder to go to sleep, the next day after some talk the Elder will give you the mud boots that you need to get passed the swamp in the forest. Now enter the forest (it is to the west). Heraldry Forest Items in Heraldry Forest: ?herb (rose hips), Amber Robe, Smelling Salts, Dummy Doll, Flame Sward, Mandrake Heraldry Forest is one of the harder areas in the game especially because you don't have a healer. Early in the forest you will run into a group of bandits, they have about 500 HP each, but if your level is high it will be no problem. (NOTE: This is a hard point in the game you have to have a pretty high level or you will have trouble with the enimies here, you may even have to go back to Mars to sleep or get more healing items) After defeating the 2nd and 3rd group of bandits, you will come to a save point. When you reach the save point, prepare for to fight a boss, heal and save. Now go east and north go to the east first to get the mandrake and go west, on your way west the wizard will come out and tell you that he is the boss of the bandits, get ready to fight. Boss: Vermillion HP: 3,000 Weakness: Fire, Light If your about level 15 this boss will be no problem. Have Cloude Use Air Slash, killer Moves and normal attacks if you have The Flame Blade this will be a easy fight. After you kill the boss you will talk to Dias and Rena, after some talk you will be back in the village, Rena will Rejoin your party. After Some talk with Eglas and the Elder, try to go out of the town, Celine will come after you and you will then be in Celine's house. Talk to Eglas and he will tell you how to cross to the El continent. The next day Eglas will tell you to go to the Lancor Continent first, Now head to Harlie. ...LOOK FOR MORE IN THE NEXT UPDATE COMING 8/1/99 --------- Thanks: --------- -Enix, For publishing the great star ocean games -GameFAQs for posting my great review -Exdeath and JAA for making other great walkthroughs which I used to help me through the first part of the game, and for wrighting great walkghroughs witch I used to help make my own. -MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL THANKS TO THE READERS WHO SEND ME GREAT INFO TO HELP ME WRIGHT MY WALKTHROUGH, AND TO ALL THE READERS OUT THERE KEEP SENDING ME THE GREAT INFO.
