04.)                          INTRODUCTION - G0400
===============================================================================
===============================================================================

Hello! I am Damir Kolar and I welcome you to my new project. Shadow Hearts
series is one of my favorite game series, and I've been waiting a fair while
for the next game to come. Finally, there it was - Shadow Hearts: From the New
World (SHFTNW for short). Since I did the guide for Shadow Hearta 2, I said to
myself "Why not do a guide for this one as well?" and nwow the result of that
thought is before you.

Now allow me to address some things:

- Picture coverage - I have a TV Tuner, which enables playing games directly
  onto my PC. Meaning? A precise pictures being taken, as you can see thru the
  guide. With those pics I shall be able to assist players in understanding the
  battle engine, menu navigation and more. Most important helpful aspect these
  pics will have is providing visual reference to solving the puzzles and the
  like. I will upload the pics on webspace for you to view and successfully
  complete the task at hand. No more confusing ways of navigating the dungeon
  or looking for particular item.

- Basics section - oh boy. This is one part I hate doing the most when creating
  a guide. And fortunately... no, a BIG fortunately for me, SHFTNW has a very
  comprehensive Help file inside main menu, accessed with Triangle button.
  Anything you wish to know about battle engine, button config, status effects,
  Karin (oops) - it's in the Help file.

- Spoiler issue - I'm the player of the game, just like you (who is reading
  this guide) are. First time I've played through the game was completely by
  myself - therefore nothing was spoiled for me. All the story elements that
  were supposed to surprise me had such effect. Therefore, in this guide there
  will be no spoilers. Have a problem with that? Let me ask you this then: What
  exactly was it you wanted to find out by clicking on this guide? How to
  advance the game or have the game spoiled for you storywise?

  Regarding this, a small change will be made... once you beat the game,
  Theater option is unlocked on starting screen. Based on that feature, the
  game is broken up in 8 chapters. I would enjoy it very much if I could name
  the chapters the way they are listed in Theater menu, but because of several
  massive spoilers contained in chapter titles I can't do that for every title.
  I changed the name of second chapter only by shortening someone's name.

- Usage of abbreviations. They really help me in cutting down stupid words I
  hate typing over and over, so again there's gonna be a plenty of them
  throughout the guide.

Are you ready? Power up your PS2, open the disc tray, pop in SHFTNW, close the
disc tray, wait for Start Menu, then select New Game...

08.)                          WALKTHROUGH - G0800
===============================================================================
===============================================================================

For beginning snack I advise you to take a bite into this scene:

kolardamir.com/shftnw/01-prologue.avi

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
-------------------- CHAPTER 01 - NEW YORK'S BOY DETECTIVE -------------- CHP01
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
                                                                       NEW YORK
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Items info: Mana Leaf, Tera Leaf, Pure Leaf, Talisman of Luck, Mana Leaf,
            Tera Leaf, Point Card, Cancer stellar chart, Hail Dust stellar,
            Earth Edge stellar, Black Card, Tent, Coral Lariat
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HINT: The game has two endings, bad one and good one. If you complete only the
      storyline events from start to end of game, you'll obtain bad ending. To
      get the good ending, you have to find all of Shania's fusion souls - then
      you need to collect all statues for fusion souls (four statues per
      fusion) and level them up to lv5.

kolardamir.com/shftnw/02-intro.avi

Rawr! Shania is an absolute win, no? After feasting your eyes on her and having
the camera point out busting specifics, sit back for few more minutes and watch
the scenes unfold. Eventually you'll gain control of Johnny and be outside his
detective office. Immediately step into the blue circle on the floor and save
your game.

Triangle menu has following options at the moment:
- ITEM
- EQUIP
- PERSONAL
  - ABILITY
  - SNAP CARDS (Johnny's exclusive)
  - HANDY TOOLS (Johnny's exclusive)
  - PROFILE
- PROPERTY
  - INVENTORY
    - KEY ITEMS
    - ITEMS
    - WEAPONS
    - ARMOR
    - ACCESSORIES
    - SNAP CARDS
  - SKILL LIST
    - HANDY TOOLS
  - LIBRARY
    - MONSTERS
    - CHARACTERS
  - SCORE
- HELP (explanation of various game's aspects, gets updated very often)
- OPTION
- DATA
  - SAVE (only when standing on SPN)
  - LOAD

As far as your inventory goes, you have the following items:
KEY ITEMS:     - K.ITEMS: PHOTO.OF.MARLOW
ITEMS:         - ITEMS: 8x THERA LEAF
               - ITEMS: 5x MANA LEAF
               - ITEMS: 3x PURE LEAF
               - ITEMS: 2x TENT
WEAPONS:       - WEAPONS: CLIP POINT
ARMOR:         - ARMOR: COTTON SHIRT
CASH:          - 300 cash

John's special abilities are called HANDY TOOLS, and currently you have:
- 1ST.HANDY.TOOLS: SNAP (take photo of a foe and get its info, 1 MP)
By taking photos of the enemies you will get SNAP CARDS, which are used in
trading them for various items, stellars, other snap cards, etc. In short, Snap
is one of the most important abilities in the game

Walk back into the office and collect ITEM: MANA LEAF & ITEM: TERA LEAF from
two chests, then go up the stairs and nab ITEM: PURE LEAF near the guitar. You
can use the bed to sleep and recover all HP and MP. Leave the office and
examine potted flower for ITEM: TALISMAN OF LUCK, then walk out of the
building.

kolardamir.com/shftnw/03-johnny-past.avi

First you'll need to gather some information about the man you're looking for.
Start by talking to Cheeky Joshua on the street corner - by doing so Times
Square will appear on world map when you leave this screen. Check the side of
car opposite to Joshua and nab ITEM: MANA LEAF. Now leave the screen to enter
world map (see the tutorial).

Right now only two locations are displayed:
- WORLD.MAP.POINT.#1: NEW YORK - UPPER WEST SIDE
- WORLD.MAP.POINT.#2: NEW YORK - TIMES SQUARE

Pick Times Square, the location that just appeared and continue your search.

Keep walking up and when you come to black car with chubby guy next to it,
examine the back of "TIMES" sign for ITEM: THERA LEAF. Keep going up for a
scene and a familiar face will pull over - you'll receive K.ITEMS: POINT.CARD
and 1ST.STELLAR.CHART: CANCER stellar chart (comes with 1ST.STELLARS: HAIL DUST
& 2ND.STELLARS: EARTH EDGE).

HINT: By buying things from shop guys you will accumulate points in order to
      raise your rank (maximum amount of points is 9999). Depending on amount
      of points you will have following benefits:
      a) Rank E - 100 points needed to reach rank D
                - 10% Discount
                - 5% Markup
      b) Rank D - 400 more points needed to reach rank C
                - 20% Discount
                - 10% Markup
      c) Rank C - 500 more points needed to reach rank B
                - 30% Discount
                - 15% Markup
      d) Rank B - 2000 more points needed to reach rank A
                - 40% Discount
                - 20% Markup
      e) Rank A - second highest rank, no more points needed to reach next rank
                - 50% Discount
                - 25% Markup
      f) Rank S - obtain Black Card
                - exempt from penalty for unsuccessful discounts and markups
                - receive twice as many points
                - 60% Discount
                - 30% Markup

Whenever you want a discount or a markup, you will have to be successful with
judgment ring. After you reach Rank A, Gerard will give you a bonus -
KEY.ITEMS: BLACK.CARD. From now on, whenever you see Gerard and Buigen, you can
do several things with them (Buigen's services are available later):
- GERARD: - BUY (buy items, weapons, accessories, etc.)
          - SELL (sell items, weapons, accessories, etc.)
          - EQUIP (equip chrs on the spot without needing Triangle menu)
          - LEAVE (leave the shop)

HINT: If you buy a lot at once, you may be randomly awarded with some items. So
      far I've been getting Lottery Tickets.

Look for a chest below the sign "Geppetto & Cornelia" - it contains ITEM: TENT.
There is Strolling Hassel walking around in the back of the screen - when you
talk to him, you'll get next clue. The man you seek is probably in Chelsea.
Leave the screen back to world map.

New map location appears:
- WORLD.MAP.POINT.#3: NEW YORK - CHELSEA

Choose Chelsea - stand next to upper right side of the car and open the chest
for ACCESSORIES: CORAL LARIAT (make sure to equip it on John), then approach
Erick Theater. McCoy the Reporter is standing in front of it, and he may have
some juicy info... Walk into SPN to the right of theater and save your
progress, then enter the theater.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HINT: Whenever you walk into new dungeon, make sure you use Johnny's Snap to
      take pictures of enemies, especially bosses! There are some enemies where
      you won't be able to do so, but worry not - pics for those foes are
      obtained by trading.

HINT: For some nostalgia allow John to be KOed in one of the battles. You won't
      get Game Over, but something else...

Navigation Map hints will be displayed - walk around the corner and collect
ITEM: MANA LEAF on the floor in '1F Entrance', then go thru the door for a
scene. An event battle will take place and you can choose to go thru tutorial
or duke it out on your own. Take the stairs to second floor's '2F Aisle'.

You'll run into Nancy, who came here along with Tom to play (how'd she ever get
past two dudes down below?). Johnny will promise to look for Tom - start the
search by going E for another event battle. This battle will teach you about
stock gauge and double attacks.

Collect 3RD.STELLARS: CURE from the ground and check the explanation for
Stellar Charts.

Don't go to 3rd floor yet - walk down the W corridor and nab ITEM: THERA LEAF
from chest, then enter nearby door to '2F Audience Seats' (west part). Defeat
the thugs and collect ACCESSORIES: LEATHER BELT from chest. Leave the room and
back to Nancy - now waltz all the way E (ignore the door for now) and check
dead end downstairs for a battle. After you win, collect ITEM: SEAL OF LUCK
from the ground.

HINT: Seal items permanently raise a statistic. Always use them in battle and
      try to hit "strike area" to get the best result.

There's nothing to be found down E corridor - enter the door we ignored before
into '2F Audience Seats' (south part) and defeat the thugs on right side. Chest
hides 4TH.STELLARS: AQUA EDGE. That's everything for second floor, so go back
to Nancy and take the stairs to 3rd floor's '3F Aisle'.

Check SE corner for a chest with ITEM: THERA LEAF, then walk down east corridor
to defeat more thugs, enter the door to '3F Audience Seats' (east part). Now
examine S portion of this seat section for ITEM: PURE LEAF, and you'll also
find Tom here.

During the convo an event battle against thugs will take place. After victory
take Tom back to Nancy, but not before checking into '3F Audience Seats' (south
part) - there's a chest with ITEM: TENT on right side. Now go back to 2nd floor
and reunite Nancy with Tom so they can finally get the hell outta here. Take
heed of fire escape door hint Tom will tell you about - if you tried opening
that door earlier, it did no good.

Back to 3rd floor, down W corridor, kick thugs' asses, save your game at SPN
and open fire escape door to enter 'Emergency Stairs'. Open the door on the top
to find your man in 'Marlowe's Room', but not all goes well...

See the tutorial on 'hard hit attacks'. Use hard hit attack to remove boss'
stock and then keep pelting it with Dusk Proud. If double becomes available,
use it. Don't dawdle too long or Thunderbird will become berserk and you may
have a problem.

HINT: Return to 'Marlowe's Room' later and pick up 5TH.STELLARS: HEAT EDGE from

When acquaintancing is done, save your game, then walk out of HQ. Outside
Worn-Out Giraffe will talk to you and give you ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET, then
immediately invite you to play lottery with him - he is LOTTERY.MEMBER.#12. You
need to stop the bar on one of colored areas of judgment ring in order to win a
prize. Judgment rings will differ between members: some rings will have no
special effects, some may have bars that spin faster than usual, some may have
colored areas that are visible for split second and then disappear etc. Red
area award can be won only once. Also, equipment you wear has no effect on
speed of ring's bar. And finally, game will let you recognize lottery members
only if you have at least one Lottery Ticket on you.

Walk N for a scene. Why does John wonder about walking around with a crazy guy?
Yet he can walk around with a hot sexy lady that wears almost nothing?
Afterwards check the monument's base for ITEMS: TALISMAN OF LUCK, then walk W
to NESC.

Loot the chest in SW corner for 10TH.STELLARS: MIRAGE, and try to open the
door. Return to monument screen - before the uni's entrance is a chest with
ITEMS: PURE LEAF. E of the monument is SPN. Save your game, then walk E to
NESC.

After the scene Foley will give you ACCESSORIES: PEDOMETER.

HINT: Wearing Pedometer while you're in dungeon will slowly accumulate steps.
      After you've acquired specific amount of steps, return to Foley and
      exchange step amount for these prizes:
      500   steps - ITEMS: THERA EXTRACT
      1000  steps - ITEMS: MANA EXTRACT
      2000  steps - ITEMS: PURE EXTRACT
      4000  steps - R.ITEM: HIT AREA EXPAND
      8000  steps - R.ITEM: STRIKE AREA EXPAND
      9000  steps - ACCESSORIES: ULTRA BELT
      10000 steps - ARMORS: CHARRO PASSION
      Except for Charro Passion, none of the rewards are worth your time. So
      keep walking until you have 10K steps, then return to Foley to get the
      armor for Ricardo - Foley will auto-give you the armor after he's seen
      that you have more than 10K steps on Pedometer.

If you try to open the wooden door with 'CAUTION' word on it, you'll be stopped
by pitch black darkness. We'll return here in due time, for now enter the uni
at last.

On 1st floor go thru E door to enter the lab, then search the bookcases on N
side for ITEMS: THERA LEAF. Entering W door will take you to the library -
search the bookcases for 11TH.STELLARS: CURE, and then head out for 2nd floor
of the uni.

On 2nd floor enter the W classroom and talk to Curious Harris (sits in first
row) to ask about Gilbert's location. Door we tried opening outside the uni is
the door leading to Gilbert's study room, so let's go examine it again. Before
you elave the classroom check SW corner for ITEMS: SEAL OF LIFE, and SE corner
for ITEMS: TENT.

Leave the uni and go check that silly door - still won't budge. Return to uni's
2nd floor, but this time enter E classroom. Check prof's desk for
ITEMS: SOUL BENEDICTION, and talk to Knowledgeable Jefferson to learn of
another entrance into Gil's room. Go back to the lab on 1st floor and steal
KEY.ITEMS: LANTERN on top of prof's desk.

Leave the uni and you'll be greeted by shop guys again. Buigen will now offer
Stellar Chart Realigning... What? Just check the tutorial. When you have loads
of cash, make Buigen visits a frequent habit because you can make some pretty
powerful magic setups that way. Buy any provisions you may need from Gerard,
esp some Shell Bracelets to ward off poison.

Go E from shop guys' position twice and you'll enter...

Saber for Frank. You can get the weapon for free by checking the small cactus

yours. Other interesting buys are: Silver Bracelet and Pocket Watch. There's a

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 'First Valley' keep going N until you come to pair of Dohkwibuhch totems. In
order to get past the totems, you will have to answer a question - but before
you do that, you need to search the valley for mural/s which contain/s hints
for totems' questions.

Go W from 1stcross, open chest for ITEMS: TALISMAN OF LUCK, then examine the
1st mural - it shows sun, 2 hares, 2 deer, 1 hunter and 1 frog on the picture.
Return to the totems and say "We saw it already.", then answer the question
pertaining to the mural you saw (you will get different question each time,
that is the question I got may not be the question you get). If you asnwer
wrongly, you'll be returned to the start of current valley you're in. Once you
give the correct answer, totems will allow you to pass on to 'Second Valley'.

Go N, open chest for ITEMS: PURE LEAF, N, see a scene, N, see another scene
with Hisakitiamisi totems - another question will be presented after you have
seen the murals in 'Second Valley'.

Go E from 2nd cross, see 2nd mural with 1 sheep, E, see 3rd mural with 2
people, carry on to 3rdcross, take S path, open chest for
18TH.STELLARS: SHIELD, and see 4th mural with 1 person & 5th mural with 1
sheep, back to 3rdcross, E, see 6th mural with 1 person, E, 4thcross, NW, open
chest with ACCESSORIES: POCKET WATCH, check 7th mural with 2 sheep, back to
4thcross, E, see 8th mural with 3 people. Now go back to Hisa-totems, choose
"Of course." and answer the question to be let into 'Third Valley'.

Walk N to run into Nayenezgami totems, 5thcross, walk W to 6thcross, N, get the
chest for 19TH.STELLARS: RED NOVA. If you walk along the right side of this
part of the area, you'll see a speech bubble with meat appear above John's
head. This denotes a place where you can put down one of the baits Nvwoti gave
you for UMA hunts. We'll return to UMA hunt in the moment, for now let's gather
all the items there are.

Back to 6thcross, SW, 7thcross, W, 8thcross, check 9th mural with fish, bird,
fish, cattle, bird animals (in this order), then more W to find a dead end.
Examine the right side for ITEMS: THIRD KEY.

HINT: Third, Fifth, Seventh and Eternal Keys are very potent items, allowing
      you to dish out some serious damage if you manage to strike all hit
      areas. As such they're very rare to find, so you should save them for
      sticky situations.

Back to 8thcross, go S - if you walk along left edge, another bubble with meat
icon appears above John's head (ignore it for now as well) - 9thcross, S, open
chest for ITEMS: SOUL BENEDICTION, see 10th mural with fish, fish, hare, cattle
animals (in this order). Return to SPN to save your game and then let's take
care of first UMA hunt!

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.1, continued

From SPN go W, then N, and meat bubble appears above John's head. Press X, then
Natan comments about huge footprints and asks if he should lay the trap here.
Confirm, then put down Honey trap (as per Nvwoti's hints). BTW, either of the
two meat-bubble-areas work. In case you plant the wrong trap, you're drawn into
event battle against local foes.

Once Honey is placed, you'll be drawn into battle against Sasquatch!

don't fret. If double for you becomes available, do high angle attack followed
by Bar Rod.

#05 JOHNNY DA DETECTIVE NR.1 QUEST

A thief by name of Tinkerbell wants to challenge John's wits. Tink sent a code
along with a chest - if you can crack the code, chest's contents is yours. When
Lenny presents the code sheet, these instructions follow: "Inside each of the
squares, there is a number, 1 through 9, with each number only used once. The
numbers to the right and below are the sums of the numbers lining up with them
horizontally and vertically. If you can figure out the numbers that go in A and
B, you should be able to open the chest..."

After some calculating input the correct code - value A is "5", and value B is
"9", then defeat the chest for a new Special Ability for John:
- 2ND.HANDY.TOOLS: VACUUM (absorb one enemy's stock, 44 MP)

she? I'm talking about stellar chart...

Check the lamp opposite of 'Prospect of Whitby' restaurant to obtain
ITEMS: SEAL OF VITALITY, then open chest opposite of shop guys for
RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND.

Shop guys offer new armors for everyone (finally!), new accessories (buy
Spikes, Bhodi Bracelets and Bell Bracelets), then talk to Bridges standing in

turn the corner, check the floor for RING ITEMS: P-DEFEND DOWN 1. In here talk

Nothing else to do here, so exit Four Deuces and go to SPN area, then go W to

Walk S for a scene and event battle against 2x Petty Mafioso and 2x Mafia
Hoodlum. One of Mafiosos has 1 stock, so knock him out first or use hard hit
attacks to empty his stock, then follow up with the rest of guys. Make sure you
take snap cards of these guys now!

Back to Four Deuces, take either stairs to upper floor, talk to mafia guy, and
meet Mao Da Cat. Unfortunately for me it's the real cat... after quite a few
scenes I'll definitely keep an eye on Shania. Yes, sirree! In the back of Mao's
room check a chest for 28TH.STELLARS: RAGE.

Apparently Frank and Natan went somewhere, so you need to find them - Natan is
waiting in the area with SPN, and Frank is in storage area of 'Whitby'. Return

You'll be in 'Corridor', just outside 'Al Capone's Cell'. Door to your E leads
back into the room with 7 jails, which doesn't interest us anymore. Enter the
door behind you back into Capone's cell and check a chest in SW corner of the
room for 35TH.STELLARS: HOLY EDGE. Use SPN, then exit the room into 'Corridor'
and take W exit into event battle against 3x Byarki.

Hello to 'Prison' - check S door to enter 'Kitchen'. Check out the booth in the
middle for a chest with ACCESSORIES: SPIKES, and NE corner of kitches for a
chest with RING ITEMS: SP-ATTACK DOWN 1. Back to 'Prison' - head directly N
until you see a scene with a door. Shania says that we'll need to find another
way...

Walk towards E exit back into 'Corridor' until Smith stops you and inquires
about you having rough time. He needs you to bring him a spoon from the
kitchen, so go there and look for a sparkle - examine it to obtain
KEY.ITEMS: JAILBREAK.SPOON. Give it to Smith for KEY.ITEMS: INSULATION.SHEET.

Now let's check out this area. 'Prison' section is divided into four parts: SW,
SE, NW and NE, and each part has stairs leading to upper floor.
SE part, lower floor: - prisoner Smith (right side)
SE part, upper floor: - ITEMS: SOUL BENEDICTION (left side)
                      - prisoner Cronole (right side)
SW part, lower floor: - ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET (next to stairbase)
                      - prisoner Evan (left side)
                      - ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET (jail furthest back)
SW part, upper floor: - prisoner Peck (left side)
                      - ACCESSORIES: BHODI BRACELET (right side)

When you're done exploring, enter the metal-detector-door in the middle to pass
into N part of 'Prison'. Here you find the following:
NE part, lower floor: - ITEMS: THERA LEAF (below stairbase)
                      - 36TH.STELLARS: HAIL DUST (chest in NE corner)
                      - prisoner Earhart (right side)
                      - prisoner Gerard (right side)
                      - prisoner Buigen (right side)
NE part, upper floor: - prisoner Murdock (right side)
NW part, lower floor: - RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND (chest in SW corner)
                      - prisoner Uso (left side)
NW part, upper floor: - prisoner Haddice (left side)
                      - prisoner Warren (left side)

Gerard sells same stuff as back in Chicago. When you're done collecting stuff,
take N door into 'Before Front Gate'. Go forward for a scene, but your path is
blocked by a steel door. Open chest in the corner for ITEMS: MANA LEAF, use
SPN, walk into corridor and follow it to two chests with ITEMS: TENT, &
37TH.STELLARS: DARK EDGE. Now enter the 'Control Room'.

Check the closets on right side for ITEMS: PURE LEAF, and then examine the
breaker board. What does all that stuff mean, anyway? Let's find someone who
has a clue about these things - hmm, Smith might know something about it. In
exchange for information Smith asks you to deliver a message to Murdock, then
he tells you clues about breakers.

"To the right of the breaker switches there should be numbers on each line.
Those indicate the correct amount of amps. So each of the breaker switches is
set for 1 to 6 amps of electricity. In short... The total amps designated by
the switches should be the same as the numbers written on the right."

Go see Murdock and relay the message. Murdock know the amps of the switches on
first row: "From the left, they should be assigned 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 amps."
You'll need to relay same message to Peck.

Peck's knowledge about breakers is: "I know the second row of breakers. From
the left, they went something like 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1." More message
delivering needs to be done - this time you need to see Baracus (he's in cells
where you ran into Prison Guard foes).

Baracus has this info for you: "...Third row. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 from the left.
That's it." Now return to 'Control Room' and let's take care of breakers. When
you examine the board, choose "All right, let's give it a shot!". Depending on
amount of tips you heard, you can review them while examining the board.

There's multiple possible solutions, and I have provided three solutions per
row. Just choose one and you'll be on your way.
- 1st row: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th
           4th, 5th, and 6th
           2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th
- 2nd row: 1st, and 6th
           3rd, 5th, and 6th
           3rd, and 4th
- 3rd row: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th
           4th, and 6th
           2nd, 3rd, and 5th

After you set the correct amount of amps, the N steel door in 'Before Front
Gate' opens. By the way, if you missed getting snaps of Prison Guards, now's
your chance - mess up in setting up the amperage to fall into event battle
against Prison Guards.

Afterwards make use of SPN in 'Before Front Gate', and check that your water
stellars are equipped, as well as Bell Bracelets to guard against Seal. Open

-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY -------------------  party: lv10

First thing to do is to use hard hit attack to deplete Ron's stock gauge. If
you don't have Bell Bracelets on, be ready to heal Seal ASAP, cos it prevents
you from casting magic. Boss' Red Nova will remove stock from hit chrs, so burn
off all stock you have at start of battle, and boss can also remove stock from
you with its rephys.
Cast Aqua Edge to chrs who don't have water magic, and have them attack Ronwei
with physicals. Have Shania change into Thunderbird and cast Arc Gale, or
switch into Tatan'ka and cast Arc Rage / Arc Surge to give yourself fighting
edge. Don't forget to heal HP and you'll emerge victorious.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

HINT: When you can visit Alcatraz again, return to the area where you fought
Ronwei ('Front Gate') and look for hidden chest in NW part which contains
ITEMS: 4TH.RING.FRAGMENT.

opening the chest near corner of the house for 39TH.STELLARS: EVIL EYE, check
the bus stop sign to obtain WEAPONS: BUS STOP SABER, and the nearby post for
ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET, then enter the hotel.

In SE corner you can find ITEMS: TENT, and make sure to check out the vending
machine, where you can buy new weapons for everyone. Exit the hotel, take E
exit and you'll be at Roswell base. Get close to the gate for a scene - aren't
getting in that easy, are we?

Back to previous screen and find Neuro near the gas pump sign. There's a truck
that comes by weekly into the base, and at just this moment this very truck is
coming around... go back to base's entrance, choose "OK, let's get on!" and

Use SPN, and take another N door into 'Research Room 1'. Here you'll meet
Morrison, who gives you KEY.ITEMS: KEYCARD.NO.1. Check NE corner of the room
for ITEMS: THERA SEED. If at any time you forget how doors work, talk to
Morrison for a refreshing update.

Take W exit and a scene occurs. At the moment you're in 'Central Laboratory'.
Hilda joins your party and can't be taken out of battle team for duration of

Wow, Hilda came equipped with lots of stellars. Check left side of the lab for
55TH.STELLARS: RED NOVA. Make sure each party member can cast Red Nova now,
except for Shania, who should be always be my permanent party member. Take N
exit into 'Corridor'. You will now be encountering enemies.

Go right, and loot the chest on end for ITEMS: DAPHNE FRUIT. Enter nearby door
into 'Research Room 2'. In SE corner you can find RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND,
and then talk to Nebra and (Chuck) Norris (NW corner) to obtain
KEY.ITEMS: KEYCARD.NO.2. Don't skip talking to Zett for a vague clue - a word
"GRAY" seems to be of some value to us.

Take W exit back into 'Corridor' and leg it for W exit into one more
'Corridor' section. Check N door to enter 'Culture Plant' and see a scene with
Britney...

#10 WAY OF THE NINJA QUEST, pt.1

You'll get KEY.ITEMS: SECRET.MESSAGE. Britney wants Frank to look for an item
*she's* supposed to look for. That is all you can do at the moment, carry on.

ITEMS: SEAL OF WISDOM is yours when you poke around the tubes, and you can find
KEY.ITEMS: KEYCARD.NO.3 laying on the floor in NE corner. Enter N door into
'Research Room 3'.

On left side is a chest with 56TH.STELLARS: SURGE. If you talk to Kelback, he
complains about losing his keycard (which we already picked up) in 'Culture
Plant' (were you to return there now, you would see a sparkle in NE corner).
Talk to Musset to learn the word "MEN". Open the E door to enter 'Corridor'.

Walk S, E, pass the T-junction and when corridor curves S again, check the
corner for ITEMS: MANA SEED. Return to T-junction and go N. You can't use the
N-most elevator yet, so enter the other door - welcome to 'Control Room'.

Loot SW chest for ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET, and check with shop guys - same stuff
as vending machine in the town. There's a hangar in NE corner - check the right
side of catwalk for chest with ITEMS: 5TH.RING.FRAGMENT. Take the stairs to
upper floor for a scene and meet Morrison's bro.

In order to release the sealed elevator, you have to know a 3-part-password.
You've already learned of two words, and somewhere in the base is a person that
knows the third. BTW, the hint for today's password is "Alien".

In far W end of the room is a chest with 57TH.STELLARS: HEAL, and check between
two empty seats to the right of this chest for ITEMS: TALISMAN OF LUCK. Now
you'll have to backtrack all the way to the 'Central Laboratory' - it was where
Hilda was locked up.

Take S exit into yet another 'Corridor' and hike W. Open the door to enter
'Storage'.

#10 WAY OF THE NINJA QUEST, pt.1, continued

The Secret Message from Britney was writing about storage room, three colored
tanks, and X marking the spot. Along N wall you can see three drums - blue, red
and yellow. Blue one has an 'X' on it... so that must be the place where THE
thing is hiding... BTW, there is no '?' bubble that pops up, you must be at
correct location and press X.

You will obtain SUPER.SECRET.ITEM: ATOMIC BOMB, which you lose just as quickly.
Instead Frank learns new special ability:
- 2ND.NINJA.ART: SEISMIC WAVE (light phd, line-med, ground, 7hit, kd, 36 MP)

There's a chest in SW corner with ITEMS: TENT, and by checking middle stack of
crates you can win RING ITEMS: SLOW 1. Talk to Zurich to obtain third and final
word "LITTLE". Back to 'Control Room'...

Examine the largest monitor and you're prompted to enter the password - pick
"Try and enter the password" and enter the correct password.

These are the choices you're offered by computer:
- 1st part: "LITTLE", "FAT", "THIN", "TALL", "ROUND"
- 2nd part: "BLUE", "GREEN", "GRAY", "PINK", "GOLD"
- 3rd part: "FISH", "CATS", "WOMEN", "DOGS", "MEN"
- Morrison's bro tells you that the clue to correct password is "Alien".
- Clues you obtained by talking to people are: "GREY", "MEN", & "LITTLE
- Therefore, the correct password order is: "LITTLE", "GREY", "MEN"

Tadaah - you've unsealed the elevator! Exit 'Control Room' into 'Corridor' and
enter the elevator to be taken to "Weapon Dev. Dock'.

Finally SPN! Heal yourself and make sure everyone that will fight has Pocket
Watch equipped, as well as earth stellars (boss' weakness). Walk forward for a
scene and here it comes...

First thing to do is to use hard hit attack or Red Nova to deplete Proc's stock
gauge. If you don't have Pocket Watches on, be ready to heal ring statuses
ASAP, otherwise you may have a bit of trouble.
Another thing to note is that boss has very high PDEF, so your physicals will
do no damage (unless you've been leveling up really high). And Hilda's in for a
surprise - you've gained command of her special skills, Magic Arts. Thorn Whip
ability is just what Shania ordered for this battle! Earth spd with knock down
effect - combo it together with other powerful spells from your repertoire
(Rock Bump is a good choice) for some big damage, and be sure to end the streak
with Red Nova so you remove the stock boss gained while assaulted. Don't allow
it to double on you as it can KO a member easily.
Have Shania form into Thunderbird and cast Arc Gale to have more turns
available, which will allow for fluid healing of injured members.

After sudden turn of events you get to choose who you want to torture. I went
with Shania (duh - "I choose you!"), but have no fear, Damir's here! Anne will
ask Shania three questions - for each you have will three choices. First one is
the truth, while second and third are not so good for you. Depending on how you
answer, you'll be rewarded with something:
- choose 1st answer three times
  -> ITEMS: THIRD KEY
- choose 1st answer once, and 2nd answer at least once
  -> RING ITEMS: STRIKE EXPAND
- choose 1st answer once, and 3rd answer at least once
  -> RING ITEMS: STRIKE EXPAND
- never choose 1st answer with John
  -> WEAPONS: ASSAULT KNIFE
- never choose 1st answer with Shania
  -> WEAPONS: WHIRLWIND
- never choose 1st answer with Natan
  -> WEAPONS: TYRANT M29

  -> ACCESSORIES: ZODIAC BRACELET
- never choose 1st answer with Mao
  -> WEAPONS: CACTUS DROP
- never choose 1st answer with Hilda
  -> WEAPONS: BRAVE MOON

I went for Third Key.

HINT: Miss Sexy Dynamite from SHC did a very similar torture session.

After torture scene is over (you may want to reload to see how other chrs fare
under this stress), your party escapes and recovers lost equips. Enter your
'prison' and open the chest for reward from your torture shenanigans (in my
case I got Third Key). Be sure to check the small bowl for 62ND.STELLARS:
SHIELD. From SPN go S to pass under 'Pirate Island' arch and you'll get to the
beach. *imagines things*

If you slowly walk S, you'll see a chest on left side of screen, which would
otherwise be obstructed from view by the big barrel - open the chest for
RING ITEMS: PARALYSIS 1. You can't go further S cos pirate Rivera is blocking
your path, so return to previous area and go upstairs.

Ship is off-limits for now, so enter the cabin thru blue door and you'll scare
the ass out of Soriano. Poke around the left lockers for ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET,
then exit the shack and walk around it - check the ye-olde-washing-machine for
ITEMS: PURE SEED and waltz N to next area.

Walk along the path for a scene (path is blocked by two pirates), then turn
around and head for the big barrel at the beach. It appears somebody is
sleeping inside - check the barrel for a scene with pirate Galbez. Now Shania
has the info she needs, and you can take care of the two guards.

As you're walking past the shack, a scene occurs - path to the sunken ship is
free. There's a handy boat nearby to help you get inside that ghostly-looking
ship too!

Items info:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HINT: Have Mao KO foes with Cat Touch to obtain 10x Octopus Coin and 5x
      Mackerel Coin for next film shoot.

'Bow of the Boat' has SPN, and if you ever wanna go back on land, check the
nearby boat - but at the moment you're stuck here. Climb the stairs and enter
the door to 'Deck'.

Climb another set of stairs and on W-most end of ship loot the chest for
ITEMS: THERA SEED, then examine the strange thing nearby to obtain
WEAPONS: MARLIN SABER. Go back dowh the stairs and try going E over the deck. A
scene kicks in, and Shania notices a boat up in the air which needs to be
lowered to cross the gap. Nearby capstan will do the trick, but you need a pole
of some kind.

Open the hatch to the left of capstan to enter 'Fore Hold'. Directly S from the
ladder is a chest with 63RD.STELLARS: RAGE, then walk left into other part of
the hold and open the chest (against N wall) for ACCESSORIES: MIRROR BRACELET.
Take E door into 'Mid Hold'. Nothing to find here, so carry on E into 'Aft
Hold'.

Here you'll bump into shop guys - they sell new armors for everyone, and buy at
least three more Mirror Bracelets. In addition you can buy Seed items now,
which provide better results than Leaves you've been using so far. Continue E
still for a scene... why look, it's the sacred area you need to get to. You
need to find the ship's helm in order to turn the rudder, who won't cooperate
at the moment. When you regain control - there is a chest just below the
opening with 64TH.STELLARS: HAIL SOLID.

Along N wall is a chest with RING ITEMS: APATHY 1. Enter nearby door and walk
up the plank, then examine the tools to obtain KEY.ITEMS: DECK.BRUSH. Prod into
shelves to find ITEMS: MANA SEED. Now go back to that capstan on 'Deck' and use
Deck Brush to lower the boat. Cross the gap and enter E door into 'Upper Aft
Deck'.

In SE corner is a chest with ITEMS: DAPHNE FRUIT. Walk along S edge and screen
will shift to show a hole in the wall. Walk thru to enter another portion of
'Deck', then climb the ladder and you can turn the helm at last. Let's go
examine the rudder - go down the ladder, into the hole of 'Upper Aft Deck', and
take W exit.

When you return to 'Deck', event battle against 3x Heinz takes place.
Afterwards go below deck and all the way W to enter 'Deep Interior'. Save your
game at SPN and I advise reaching lv17 for your main party. When you're ready,
equip Shania with Poison 1, and Pocket Watch. Approach the huge blue door, and
then open it for next boss.

Have Shania turn into Tatan'ka and then use hard hit attack or fusion's Red
Nova to deplete La's stock gauge. Boss will likely cast Barrier to reduce spd
taken which we shall counter by casting Arc Surge on Tatan'ka. Sirene is
susceptible to Poison so if you manage to stick it onto her, more power to you.
Battle is essentially trading blows between Shania and her opponent - you'll
need to heal after taking 2~3 hits and don't forget to remove boss' stock once
it accumulates.

Go see Nvwoti, who has another UMA info for Natan.

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.2

Nvwoti tells you of an UMA being present in a sunken ship somewhere, and
provides these tips: "Its body covered in slime, the UMA called Tihozhodhi is
most revolting. It makes a home out of sunken ships in the ocean. It supposedly
lays eggs that look like red moss. It hates sour things, and if you put sour
things in its nest, it will get angry and attack you." Remember that whenever
you're UMA hunting, Natan *must* be in your fighting party. Now back to the
pirates.

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.2, continued

If you check your UMA hunting key items, Grapefruit's description says this is
a very bitter fruit. Combined with Nvwoti's hints this makes Grapefruit the
bait to use, and you only need to find the place now. If you examine E-most
side of 'Bow of the Boat' below the stairs, meat bubble appears above John.
Natan comments about moss being in this spot - trap or not to trap? Read UMA
Info in Natan's Personal menu for more on Tiho - the moss should be red, yet
Natan doesn't say anything about color of the moss which makes this a wrong
spot.

To find the correct spot, head to 'Upper Aft Deck', poke everyone with Pocket
Watches and Red Nova magic, examine NE corner for meat bubble - Natan mentions
*red* moss being here, so place down Grapefruit.

Eliminate Tiho's stock right off the bat with Red Novas (boss' weakness is fire
as an added bonus), then snap it with John. Don't let the UMA double on you,
cos it hits pretty hard for around 100 phd. Shania changes into Sirene and
casts Arc Shield, then into Tatan'ka and casts Arc Surge or Arc Rage (whichever
type of attacks you prefer). Pocket Watch will assure you're not affected with
Small Ring effects. All in all, not a hard battle.

#06 JOHNNY DA DETECTIVE NR.2 QUEST

Tink wants to mess with us again - he sent a couple of assassins after John, so
you'll need to everything in your power to get out of this one alive and well.
First assassin is to be found in Times Square. Don't you think it's weird that
Tink lets you know where assassins are?

Go to Times Square, and head for 'Geppetto & Cornelia' shop. To the left of it
is a lamppost and near it you'll find Mack, the first assassin. Mack will
challenge you to arithmetic test - you have to answer 10 questions, each with a
ten seconds time limit. Fail to answer or choose a wrong answer, and you fail
the test. All questions are of addition and subtracting type, so not too hard.

HINT: If you're having trouble, I advise getting a friend to help you out.

After Mack is 'defeated', he tells you that next assassin is found in Harlem.
Leave for world map.

New map location appears:
- WORLD.MAP.POINT.#13: NEW YORK - HARLEM

Enter Harlem - when you appear, skip going into the alley for now. Walk E and
examine 2nd grating on the street for 8TH.STELLAR.CHART: GEMINI stellar chart.
It comes installed with 73RD.STELLARS: HEAL, 74TH.STELLARS: HOLY EDGE,
75TH.STELLARS: EARTH EDGE, 76TH.STELLARS: HEAT EDGE, 77TH.STELLARS: ROCK BURST.
Walk around the corner, check behind STOP sign to nab 78TH.STELLARS: RAISE UP,
and then open the chest near Luis for ITEMS: MANA SEED.

Enter the alley you skipped before and meet Coolbaugh, the second assassin.
Like Mack before, Coolbaugh will challenge you to arithmetic test - you have to
answer 10 questions, each with a ten seconds time limit. Fail to answer or
choose a wrong answer, and you fail the test. All questions are of multiply and
division type (or mix of both), so not too hard.

HINT: If you're having trouble, I advise getting a friend to help you out.

Afterwards you receive ACCESSORIES: PANORAMIC LENS. Walk back into the alley
and check the back of the big post for ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET.

HINT: Panoramic Lens allow John to take snaps of all enemies at once!

Usual procedure applies: use Red Nova to remove boss' stock, then buff yourself
up with Arc Barrier, Arc Surge (Tatan'ka) and Arc Gale (Thunderbird). Feather
Bracelets will shield you from Mental Breakdown. Because Ric comes installed
with Arc Cure, you can have him tossing healing every round or when it's needed
- be careful as boss has lots of area spells.
When battle draws to a close, foe buffs itself up with Surge, so make sure you
maintain Arc Barrier. Now's also a good time to combo together some attacks and
finish it with Flame Mine CM (or end it with Red Nova). If you slip up and let
boss use double on you, expect to see about 75% HP drained from targeted
members, so be sure to keep enemy's stock in check.
Pound on the boss with fire spells (Ric's especially useful), or give physical
combatants Heat Edge status in order to quickly bring down Malice's HP for
another boss victory.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

There's couple more things to do at Las Vegas, though.

#10 WAY OF THE NINJA QUEST, pt.2

When you walk to hotel's entrance, go right to bump into Britney.

HINT: Britney will not be here if you didn't obtain Seismic Wave for Frank way
      back in Roswell Base. If you're missing this skill, return to Roswell
      Base and complete the quest associated with it.

After the scene Yakovski will multiply into four copies and you need to find
the real one. Pay attention to which ninja will have heart bubble appear above
his head - that's Yak. Then all four copies will start running around like
crazy - when they stop, shoot the correct copy. As a reward for successful
capture of rogue ninja Frank obtains new special ability:

Go see Nvwoti, who has another UMA info for Natan.

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.3

Nvwoti tells you of an UMA being present somewhere, and provides these tips: "I
don't know its name, but it is said to be a pesky creature that sucks the blood
of small animals. Its notable features are that it walks on two feet with
hooked nails, and doesn't return to where it has eaten. Recently, there have
been many reported sightings in a ruins near Mexico." Remember that whenever
you're UMA hunting, Natan *must* be in your fighting party. Now to Chichen
Itza.

Items info:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you take a look at world atlas, you'll notice that location of Chichen Itza
is pretty close to Mexico.

When you appear, walk towards the pyramid for a scene, then climb the stairs to
enter 'B1F' of the pyramid. Check SE pillar for ACCESSORIES: VINE BRACELET,
then approach the circular slab on N wall for a scene. There's a depression for
something to be inserted. Take E stairs to run into shop guys - Gerard sells
new armors, and do buy some Vine Bracelets as well. Opposite to shop guys is a
corner where meat bubble icon appears, but that is the wrong location cos there
are bird feathers left next to hooked nails prints, meaning this was a place
where UMA has dined already.

Take W stairs and an explanatory scene rolls - game explains how to progress in
this dungeon by using pyramid's features. When the floor lights up, the
corresponding door opens - however, you have to move quickly once the floor is
activated cos the door closes otherwise and you have to try again. Check the
side corridor for chest with 88TH.STELLARS: ARC HEAL, then step on dragon tile
to raise N door - dash to the chest with KEY.ITEMS: CRIMINAL'S.SKULL.

Now go to the circular slab and examine it again - John will insert the skull
you found and path will be opened, so press forward.

'B2F' - walk N, E, 1stcross, E, N, check the corner for another possible hunt
spot, but it's a wrong spot. Go W downstairs and check behind SE pillar for
89TH.STELLARS: EVIL SHADE. Step on dragon tile and leg it for the door's chest
with ITEMS: SEAL OF SPEED.

Back to 1stcross, take N path, 2ndcross, W, N downstairs, step on dragon tile,
then dash - S upstairs, W, 2ncross, N and loot the door's chest for
RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND. Now take the stairs past dragon tile, leading you
even deeper.

'B3F' - walk forward for overview of situation, then take E path to descend
into the room below. Behind 4th pillar in 2nd row is a chest with
RING ITEMS: INSTANT DEATH 1. Step on N dragon tile and dash to the NE door to
loot a chest with KEY.ITEMS: WARRIOR'S.SKULL. Then step on W dragon tile and
dash to N door to loot a chest with 90TH.STELLARS: ARC CURE.

HINT: Awesome! You now have two Arc Cures, so it's worth your while to visit
      Buigen and have him lower MP cost in stellar slots where Arc Cures are
      put, since healing will be taken care of for most part.

Behind 1st pillar in 1st row is another UMA hunting spot - once again,
incorrect. Walk into W corridor, open the chest on S end for
ITEMS: MANA EXTRACT, and then insert Warrior's Skull into circular slab behind
you. Go downstairs.

'B4F' - take the linear path, and just before you exit into lower floor,
examine left corner for ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET.

'B5F' - take E stairs, and walk around S corner. Step on dragon tile and leg it
for NE door to nab the chest with ITEMS: DAPHNE FRUIT. Return to dragon tile
you stepped on, continue W and step on another dragon tile. Beat it to SW door
for a chest with ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER. There's SPN in NW corner of the area, so
go and save your progress.

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.3, continued

Ensure Natan is in party and go to two rows i pillars on S end of the area.
Check behind 2nd pillar of the 1st row for meat bubble icon - Natan comments
about hooked nails prints, and nothing else being in the area. Set out Hare
trap and...

Eliminate Chupa's stock right off the bat with Red Novas, then snap it with
John. Don't let the UMA double on you, cos it hits pretty hard for around 100
phd. Shania changes into Sirene and casts Arc Shield, then into Tatan'ka and
casts Arc Surge or Arc Rage (whichever type of attacks you prefer). Then
continue casting Bright Rage or attack with Holy Edge status on physical
combatants. Pocket Watch will assure you're not affected with Random Ring
effects. All in all, not a hard battle.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

Return to SPN and look to the right of SPN for a chest with
91ST.STELLARS: ARC SHIELD. For final chest - step on dragon tile W from SPN,
then quickly step on dragon tile SE from SPN. Run thru the door down W stairs
and make a dash for N door with a chest containing KEY.ITEMS: ROYAL.SKULL. Loop
around the room, save at SPN and go downstairs to NW door, in which John
inserts Royal Skull. Before you go down, equip Bell Bracelets on everyone, in
addition to Poison 1 on somebody.

Usual procedure applies: use Red Nova to remove boss' stock, then buff yourself
up with Arc Barrier, Arc Surge (Tatan'ka) and Arc Gale (Thunderbird). Bell
Bracelets will shield you from Seal. Do bring two chrs that can cast Arc Cure
and healing probs are taken care of. It's hard to combo on this boss since it
likes to launch hard hit attacks against party. Anyway - since it's light
based, cast Evil Eye / Evil Shade magics for some quick mincemeat.
In second half boss buffs itself with Barrier, but Arc Surge will ensure that
damage cut becomes insignificant.

DUNGEON 009                                                        MACHU PICCHU
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Enemy info: No.036 Dicteo (4 Snaps, 1 Mackerel)
            No.037 Xi Dazun (4 Snaps, 1 Octopus)
            No.038 Xantak (4 Snaps, 2 Octopus)
            No.039 Wariche (4 Snaps, 2 Scallop)
            No.040 Kerufe (3 Snaps, 5 Scallop)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Items info:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HINT: Wariche drops Scallop Coins, which you need for third Mao's movie, so put
      her Cat Touch to the test.

HINT: Make sure someone wears Warning Device to keep your chrs from getting
      ambushed too often. In addition, equip Leonardo's Bears on everyone.

'Outside' - when you enter Machu, watch few scenes. Afterwards don't enter the
ruins yet - turn around and examine SW corner for ACCESSORIES: LEONARDO'S BEAR,
then walk around N wall to find the chest with 103RD.STELLARS: ARC GALE. Enter
the ruins into 'B1 Three Windows'.

Like with Chichen, first room will be a tutorial on how to navigate thru the
dungeon. Walk past SPN and a scene occurs - you'll come to a door which is half
blue and half red. There is a blue altar on left side, and red altar on right
side of the door. When John presses blue switch, blue light on the door will go
out, so that mean that the light with same color as the switch will be turned
off when the switch is pressed.

Walk to red switch and press it to turn off red color - again, the light
responds to the color of the switch, and the same colored door then opens. Walk
N into another section of the area. Walk W and Johnny will notice a big mask on
the wall - you'll obtain KEY.ITEMS: GOLDEN.MASK from the chest. Notice how a
mask icon with red left eye and blue right eye appeared in upper right corner
of the screen?

Going thru middle N door bears no fruit, instead mess with yellow switch. Pay
attention - mask icon's eyes will change color once yellow switch is pressed.
You now have yellow left eye and red right eye - in short, mask's eyes are of
same color as the last two switches you flipped. Also, one of the switches (in
this case blue) has been reset - in these ruins you can only have two of them
flipped at once. Natan recaps: "The three doors in this room cannot be opened
all at once."

Enter right N door and collect ITEMS: ANGEL SOUFFLE from the chest. Return to
three switches and flip blue one, then take left N door and enter another part
of ruin's outdoor sceneries.

There is SPN here, so save your game - W from SPN, hidden from view and behind
the wall, is a chest with ITEMS: SEAL OF LIFE. Examine the plants near SPN for
104TH.STELLARS: RAISE UP. Walk along N wall, and when you come to ruined part
of wall (just above shop guys' motorbike), sniff around here for
ITEMS: 9TH.RING.FRAGMENT. Next, examine the NW corner (nearby you'll find
entrance to 'Hall of Condor', but you don't need to go there just yet) and loot
the chest for ITEMS: THERA ROOT. Head back to SPN and descend nearby stairs to
find shop guys - they don't offer anything new. SE from their position is a
chest with ITEMS: SEAL OF AURA, and SW from their position check the rocks for
ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET.

Take the stairs S from shop guys and say hi to 'B1 Hall of Condor - right
area'. S, 1stcross, W, flip green switch, E, 1stcross, S, W, flip red switch,
E, N, 1stcross, W, S, W, thru red/green door, screen switch to 'B1 Hall of
Condor - center area'.

W, S around the corner, E around the corner, screen switch to 'B1 Hall of
Condor - right area'.

E, loot the chest for ITEMS: MANA ROOT, W, screen switch to 'B1 Hall of Condor
- center area'.

S around the corner, E around the corner, flip purple switch, turn around, N
around the corner, walk all the way N, W around the corner, N around the
corner, thru red/purple door, loot three chests for ITEMS: PURE ROOT, RING
ITEMS: SP-DEFEND DOWN 2, & 105TH.STELLARS: ENTRANCE.

Turn around, thru red/purple door, W around the corner, S around the corner,
walk all the way S, W around the corner, flip yellow switch. Turn around, E, E,
N around the corner, take next E corridor, screen switch to 'B1 Hall of Condor
- right area'.

E, N, thru yellow/purple door, E, flip red switch, E, N, 1stcross, E, flip
green switch, S, W, thru red/green door, screen switch to 'B1 Hall of Condor -
middle area'.

E, S around the corner, walk all the way S, at the bottom turn W and keep
walking until you bump into yellow switch - flip it. Turn around and keep
walking E, then flip purple switch.

Turn around, W, N around the corner, E around the corner, screen switch to 'B1
Hall of Condor - right area'.

E, N, thru yellow/purple door, E, N, 1stcross, N, upstairs, you're outside.

Walk to NW corner and enter 'B1 Hall of Condor - middle area' (more
specifically, SW entrance into it), E, flip blue switch, thru blue/purple door,
S around the corner, W around the corner, flip yellow switch, turn around, N
around the corner, walk all the way N (past blue/purple door), turn W, N, W,
thru blue/yellow door, screen switch to 'B1 Hall of Condor - left area'.

S, E, open the chest for ACCESSORIES: SMALL JUG, W, N, downstairs into 'B2 Hall
of Sun'.

Save at SPN, then try walking into N-most green flame gushing out of the wall.
From your position go to NW end and flip red switch there. The red flames went
out, while green and blue flames still remain.

Leg it for NE end and loot the chest for 106TH.STELLARS: GALE BLAST, then pay a
visit to E end and flip blue switch - blue flames will get extinguished, but
red flames come back. In other words, the flames of the same color as the
switch you flip become extinguished, but you can only extinguish one color at a
time. So by flipping green switch, you'll make it to the exit.

Make your way to W end and nail the chest with ITEMS: THERA ROOT. To reach
green switch, you have to go to SW end - once flipped, blue flames come back,
but green flames say buh-bye. Before making a smashing exit, visit SE end for a
chest with 107TH.STELLARS: ROCK BURST. Return to SPN to save your game, then
walk N, and go downstairs to 'B3 Stair Landing'.

HINT: Due to storyline reasons, you won't be able to use Shania for next boss
      battle, so take off her cloth... I mean accessories.

Walk N for a scene and event battle against 4x Xi Dazun and Xantak. After the
battle Shania leaves (NOOOO!), so you'll need to pick a replacement. One more
event battle against same enemies will erupt. Afterwards check SW corner for
ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER and walk N into 'B4 Corridor'.

Follow the path, then go right at T-junction, collect the chest for
ITEMS: DAPHNE FRUIT, return to T-junction and go left for a scene. Make sure
you use SPN to save your game, equip Shell Bracelets on everyone, then descend
into 'B5 Altar'.

-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY -------------------- party: lv24

Usual procedure applies: use Red Nova to remove boss' stock, then buff yourself
up with Arc Gale, Arc Barrier, Arc Shield, Arc Surge, and Arc Rage. Shell
Bracelets will shield you from Poison. Do bring two chrs that can cast Arc Cure
and healing probs are taken care of.

Kerufe likely begins with Gale, and then a dose of Poison on everyone. Since
it's wind based, combo or dcombo together attacks with knock down effect,
followed by Rock Burst. Boss will try slowing you down, but counteract that
with Arc Gale. Don't forget to heal yourself after being hit with Air Shot and
Pre-Ignition.

After the scene check behind SE statue for a chest with ITEMS: SEAL OF FORCE.
Afterwards get to center of the lift to be auto-taken down in front of
pyramid's entrance. Enter the structure for a scene, and you'll find yourself
into '1F Maze'.

Walk up for a tutorial scene on how to navigate the dungeon. John will step on
elevator in attempt to get it to move, but no Shania - then Ric notices a
switch nearby and activates it. Doing that will also lit up one quarter of the

of them per level to fully activate the elevator. Press R1 to bring up
Navigation map - 4 red dots denote the 4 switches you need to activate. Use SPN
if you need to.

110TH.STELLARS: HEAT RESIST, and E-most end for a chest with
ITEMS: TALISMAN OF MERCY. Hop on elevator to reach '2F Maze'.

There's a chest nearby with ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET, then go E, and at junction
go N. Sniff behind the big block for ITEMS: 10TH.RING.FRAGMENT - now follow the
linear path to next screen.

'2F Labyrinth' - loot the chest in dead end for ITEMS: PURE ROOT, then step
into red elevator.

'3F Labyrinth' - walk N for a scene. Use SPN nearby 1stcross, then nail 1st
elevator switch N from the elevator. Back to 1stcross, go E, then S at 2ndcross
to reach a chest with RING ITEMS: POISON 2. Return to 2ndcross, go N, then W at
3rdcross to reach 2nd elevator switch, back to 3rdcross, go N, continue past
green elevator to reach a chest with 111ST.STELLARS: RED BOUNCE. Board green
elevator now.

'2F Labyrinth' - W to reach 1stcross, W again to find a chest with
ACCESSORIES: WILL POWER, return to 1stcross, go S to find 2ndcross, W to find a
chest with ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER, back to 2ndcross, go E and board purple
elevator.

'1F Labyrinth' - go W and nail 112TH.STELLARS: HOLY RESIST from the chest, then
go S and loop around the pillar to find a dead end, but Shania (that's my girl)
will notice an odd pattern on the ground. When John steps onto it, it will form
a bridge leading you to N part of this room. Cross the bridge, then turn E
immediately - step onto another pattern to activate a portion of the bridge,
then collect ITEMS: ANGEL SOUFFLE from a chest to the N of this pattern. Return
to first bridge you activated and walk W to loop around the room along N side.
On the way check out the chest for RING ITEMS: SEAL 2. You'll reach another
pattern which you need to step onto. The bridge it forms will also connect with
2nd bridge you created, forming T-junction. Walk S to find 3rd elevator switch,
and now make your way to yellow elevator and board it.

'2F Labyrinth' - walk N to find yet another floor pattern. Step onto it to make
a shortcut to the other part of the room. Return to yellow elevator and go S to
find 4th elevator switch (ignore pink elevator on the way). After activating
the switch, board pink elevator.

'3F Labyrinth' - walk W to find T-junction, go S and nail the chest for
113TH.STELLARS: EVIL SHADE, back to T-junction, go N, activate another floor
pattern which forms a bridge to SPN and now activated elevator. Make sure to
save your progress before taking the elevator - also equip Vine Bracelets. When
you're ready, board the elevator.

Usual procedure applies: use Red Nova to remove bosses' stock, then buff
yourself up with Arc Gale, Arc Barrier, Arc Shield, Arc Surge, and Arc Rage.
Vine Bracelets will shield you from apathy, and bring two chrs that have Poison
ring items equipped. Keep attacking Daoros until it suffers from deadly poison
and it'll eventually kill it. Don't forget two chrs that can cast Arc Cure, so
healing probs are taken care of.

Daoros has a repertoire of Arc spells which it will use like no tomorrow to
buff it and [??????] up. [??????] himself will frequently lower your PATK and
SATK, so counteract it with Arc Rage and Arc Surge, respectively. Use combos of
Red Bounce (or physical with high angle), followed with Red Nova (or similar)
against Daoros, and combine physicals with high angle, followed with Hail Solid
against [??????]. When you do it correctly, [??????] will fall in about 2~3
such attacks.

[??????] has brutal physical strength, so don't let it double on you or perform
a combo with Daoros (same goes for it). You'll need to heal each time [??????]
attacks someone.

Additionally, [??????] dropped RING ITEMS: P-ATTACK DOWN 2, and

wants to learn how to write and read - leave for world map and come back. Talk
to Himene again - she's not alone this time. Her mom Matie is with her and she

RING ITEMS: 10TH.ATTACK.BOOST.

Now enter John's HQ.

#06 JOHNNY DA DETECTIVE NR.3 QUEST

John's quest is to find a missing cat. To gather some info, you'll need to look
for Mia's father first - he can be found in Times Square. Go there, then talk
to Leon (man wearing a hat) - one day he left the shop to go home and left the
cleaning to three of his workers (Wells, Randy and Taffy). Next morning the cat
was gone... since Leon claims the cat is a coward and won't go out by itself,
that means one of three workers must have taken it. Wells can be found
somewhere in Times Square, Randy in Chelsea and Taffy in Harlem.

Keep going N until you bump in Luchella (woman in black skirt) - talk to her
and she reveals that she's LOTTERY.MEMBER.#05.

LOTTERY      Ring  : Up Judgment Ring
MEMBER       Red   : 122ND.STELLARS: CURE PLUS
#05          Yellow: ACCESSORIES: FORCE BROW
             Blue  : RING ITEMS: STRIKE EXPAND
             Green : ITEMS: PURE ROOT
             Miss  : ITEMS: TISSUES

Be sure to win Cure Plus from her. Leave for world map and come back
immediately. Another person appears just below "SPARKS" shop sign and that is
Ramirez - he just saw Wells standing further down the street. Leg it there and
talk to Wells - John will interrogate him about the cat and this is what Wells
says: "First off, I can tell you for certain it wasn't me. I was the last one
to leave that day, but the cat was already gone, you see. Have you talked to
Randy and Taffy yet? They're both liars, so watch out." Okay, go to Chelsea.

Past the black car, near the lamppost, you'll see Olga. Talk to her and inquire
about Randy, who enters the scene. When interrogated, this is what he says: "I
was the last one to leave that day. But I don't remember whether the cat was
there or not when I left... Even I think that sounds suspicious. Guess that
means I must be the culprit. Hahahahah! You're gonna go talk to the other two,
right? Wells is a lying dog, but Taffy, he's an honest guy. Remember that." And
now for Harlem.

At the street corner you'll bump into Deson. Talk to him to ask about Taffy's
whereabouts - enter the alley and you'll now find Taffy here. Interrogate him
and this is what he says: "There's no way I could be the culprit. See, I was
the second one to leave, and when I did, the cat was still there. Wells is the
suspicious one. Randy's honest, so... It has to be Wells, right? Return to HQ.

Talk to Lenny and choose "I'm going to go over my info." At next prompt go over
all three stories you heard until John says he can't figure it out. Lenny
advises to go talk to Leon again. Back to Times Square.

Talk to Leon and ask about workers' personalities. All three have a strange
thing in common - even though they all normally tell the truth, when they do
lie, they all only tell out-and-out lies. In other words, when they lie, they
tell complete lies, otherwise it's the complete truth.

Return to HQ, talk to Lenny and choose "I'll name the culprit!" for a series of
questions:
- Q: How many of them are telling the truth?
  A: Only one.
- Q: Who was the last one in the shop?
  A: Wells.
- Q: Who's the guilty one?
  A: Taffy.

Go to Harlem once more and look for Taffy in the alley. Talk to him and he'll
confess about being guilty.

Return to HQ again for a scene - John obtains new special ability:
- 3RD.HANDY.TOOLS: PHONE CALL (no-element spd, area-lg, midrange, 1hit, hh,
                              84 MP)

If you want, you can return to all people involved in this quest and talk to
them for an update on situation.

Arkham Uni is your next stop.

Bracelets will shield you from petrify. Don't forget two chrs that can cast Arc
Cure, so healing probs are taken care of.

When Delget uses Energy Charge, I find it better option to just attack with
everyone - why bother defending three times and thus wasting three turns, when
you can attack three times and then waste one turn reviving KOed chr.

Good combo to string together is Bright Rage, followed with Gale Vortex. Don't
forget Tatan'ka Inspire, which increase stock gain rate.

From cave's entrance go thru 'Petroglyph Area' and 'Southwest Corridor' into

Return to 'Southeast Corridor', take E exit into another part of 'Southeast
Corridor', then walk around to enter upper part of 'Center' and into 'Western
Corridor', then 'Northwest Corridor' and finally 'Hall of Black Tiki'. Examine
the left black Tiki of 3rd pair for meat bubble icon to show up. This Tiki is

your baits, so place Grapefruit bait. Return to 'Northwest Corridor'.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Items info:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk forward for a scene and they you appear inside the tower. Exit back out
and search near the stairs for ITEMS: SEAL OF STRENGTH. Back to the tower.

'1F' - there's a chest with ITEMS: PURE EXTRACT in NW end, and it's been a
while since we saw shop guys. Gerard has new weapons, armors, and a couple of
nifty accessories, like Cosmic Bracelets. Climb the middle stairs to get to a
chest with 140TH.STELLARS: AIR RESIST. Exit W to 'Corridor'.

'Corridor' - loop around the room.

'2F' - go right for a scene. John will mess with a yellow/green crystal -
yellow color is at the bottom, and green is at the top. Watch what happens with
the pillars - yellow ones will go down, and green ones will raise. Go across
green pillars to reach green/red crystal, then operate it for some more
explanation. Walk across red pillar to reach red/yellow crystal, then operate
it. In short - the pillars who are of the same color as bottom half of the
crystal will go down when crystal is touched, and the pillars who are of the
same color as top half of the crystal will rise when crystal is touched. To the
left of red/yellow crystal is a chest with ITEMS: ANGEL SOUFFLE. Cross yellow
pillar and fiddle with green/red crystal. Cross red pillar and now fiddle with
bright white crystal, which will open the path further up.

HINT: The way I describe crystals denote the way relevant colored pillars move.
      For example, if I say that you will examine red/yellow crystal, this
      means: red pillars will go down, yellow pillars will go up.

'Corridor' - examine the nearby corner for ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET, then loop
around the room.

'3F' - go left and examine green/red crystal. Now head right and examine
yellow/green crystal, then cross two green and two red pillars, open chest on
the right for ACCESSORIES: COSMIC BRACELET, and walk to far left across green
pillar to reach green/red crystal. You'll be taken to lower ground of '3F'.
Immediately S from this green pillar you can examine the corner for
141ST.STELLARS: RED GRAVITY. Walk across the other green pillar into N side of
the room, operate bright white crystal to open N door, then walk across two
yellow pillars to reach a chest with ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER. Go back across green
pillar into S side of the room, and examine red/yellow crystal. Walk a bit
right to step on red pillar to examine green/red crystal. Red pillar you're
standing will take you to the upper ground of '3F' and you can walk across two
yellow pillars to the exit.

'Corridor' - loop around the room, but before you take the door to '4F', check
the corner for RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND.

'4F' - a welcome SPN. Go left first and examine green/red crystal, then return
to SPN and go right to examine red/yellow crystal. Red pillar will take you to
lower ground of '4F'. Go left and examine yellow/green crystal - go right to
cross red and yellow pillars to find a chest with 142ND.STELLARS: ROCK JAVELIN,
then go left to cross yellow and red pillars and fiddle with green/red crystal.
Cross nearby yellow and green pillars to N side of the room, and step on green
pillar which has yellow/green crystal next to it. Green pillar will take you to
upper ground of '4F'. Now you can walk over four green pillars to NE corner of
the room to examine green/red crystal. Green pillar will take you to lower
ground of '4F'. Go up a bit and examine the sword in the ground to obtain
WEAPONS: LEGEND SABER. Check nearby red/yellow crystal, then loop around the
big stone to collect ITEMS: THERA ROOT. Stand on top of green pillar and
examine yellow/green crystal. Green pillar will take you to upper ground of
'4F'. Go left and examine green/red crystal, then go past SPN and examine
red/yellow crystal. Red pillar will take you to lower ground of '4F'. Examine
nearby yellow/green crystal, walk left and examine green/red crystal. Cross two
yellow and two green pillars into N side of the room, then cross another two
green pillars and stand on top of yellow pillar with red/yellow crystal nearby.
Yellow pillar will take you to upper ground of '4F'. Check nearby green/red
crystal and you can now reach bright white crystal (by walking over two yellow
and one red pillar) to open the exit. Go past green/red crystal and walk across
yellow pillars - on your way to the exit take a moment to walk across two
yellow pillars leading to E wall. Sniff around here to obtain valuable
ITEMS: 12TH.RING.FRAGMENT. Cross the final red pillar to the exit.

'Corridor' - loop around the room.

'5F' - no more crystal/pillar crap. Walk over to the chest and nail it for
ITEMS: SEAL OF WISDOM. On the way to the exit walk along N edge and you'll be
able to collect 143RD.STELLARS: DARK RESIST. Enter the door.

'Corridor' - loop around the room.

'6F' - walk forward for a scene. Compare the star patterns on both doors to the
star pattern on the ground. When you match the left door's star pattern with
the ground star pattern, left door opens - same applies for right door. The
bright white crystal on N side of the room will reset the puzzle. Stepping on
one of five stones will change the color of the stone you stepped on as well as
those to the left and to the right of it. Walk along W edge of the room and
you'll pick up 144TH.STELLARS: EVIL SERVANT. Now to the puzzle - starting from
bottom-most stone, we have S, W, NW, NE and E stones. To open the left door,
step on NW, then NE stone and voila.

'Corridor' - loop around the room to reach chest with WEAPONS: SNOWDROP SENTRY,
then return to '6F'.

'6F' - to open right door, reset the puzzle and step on S, W, then E stones to
unlock right door.

'Corridor' - loop around the room to reach SPN, equip all water stellars you
have, then equip Leonardo's Bears, save your game and enter the door for next
boss battle.

-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY -------------------- party: lv34

Usual procedure applies: use Evil Shade to remove boss' stock, then buff
yourself up with Arc Gale, Arc Barrier, Arc Shield, Arc Surge, and Arc Rage.
Leonardo's Bears will shield you from instant death, and bring two chrs that
have P-Attack Down and Sp-Attack Down ring items equipped - doing so will help
you lower the damage boss can dish out. Don't forget two chrs that can cast Arc
Cure, so healing probs are taken care of. Combine physicals with high angle,
followed with Hail Exceed against [??????]. You'll need to heal each time
[??????] attacks someone.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

HINT: Afterwards return to this place and search around for ITEMS: FIFTH KEY.
      It's best you do that when you're hunting for Sky Fish UMA.

You'll get RING ITEMS: INSTANT DEATH 2, and ACCESSORIES: DARK ANGEL.

Nvwoti tells you of an UMA being present in high towers, but near impossible to
catch. It goes by name of Sky Fish, and Nvwoti has provided these hints: "It
seems to like insect pheromones. Hm... this one's a bit troublesome. Pheromones
are lighter than air. If you're going to lay a trap, and don't set it on the
story directly below, it won't do any good." Remember that whenever you're UMA
hunting, Natan *must* be in your fighting party. Now to Uyuni Salt Lake!

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.5, continued

From start of dungeon, go to '2F'.

'2F' - all crystals reset, except for the bright white crystal. Ain't that
great... walk right and examine yellow/green crystal, walk across two green
pillars, examine green/red crystal, walk over red pillar, examine red/yellow
crystal, walk over yellow pillar, examine green/red crystal, cross red pillar
and advance to '3F'.

'3F' - go left, examine green/red crystal, go right, examine yellow/green
crystal, walk across two green, then two red pillars, go left across green
pillar and stand on top of green pillar with green/red crystal nearby - examine
it. Green pillar will take you to lower ground of '3F'. Go a bit right and
examine red/yellow crystal, go a bit right again and stand on red pillar, then
examine nearby green/red crystal. Red pillar will take you to upper ground of
'3F'. Now cross two yellow pillars to the exit and leg it for '4F'.

'4F' - go left and examine green/red crystal, go right and cross over red
pillars to the exit, then bounce it to '6F'.

'6F' - get to middle of ground star for meat bubble icon to show. Since the UMA
you're hunting for likes pheromones, you need to place Morpho Scales bait. Then
take the right door and hoof it to 'Altar'. Make sure you use SPN along the
way.

'Altar' - search near the altar to obtain Fifth Key, then stand on the steps
for another meat bubble icon to show up. To catch the pheromones floating up
from below floor, set up Fly Paper bait and get ready.

Eliminate Fish's stock right off the bat with Red Novas, then snap it with
John. Don't let the UMA double on you, cos it hits very hard. Lower its PATK
with respective ring items equipped, and be careful - when Fish's HP falls over
50%, it has a tendency to escape from battle, so lead your team into victory by
unleashing a massive double combo string with earth magics. Don't bother
healing KOed members, revive them instead with items.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

You obtain ACCESSORIES: WISE CALMET. Now you have to walk all the way dooown.

'3F' - walk across two yellow pillars, go right and examine yellow/green
crystal, cross two red and two green pillars to reach S door.

 When you make it, return to Gada Village.

HINT: Alyosh foe drops Bream Coins you need as part of payment for Mao's fifth
      movie, so make sure you put her Cat Touch to serious use.

Use SPN at the entrance and enter the residence for a scene.

'Entrance Hall' - check the broken chandelier on left for ITEMS: MANA ROOT,
then walk forward for event battle against 3x Ledupe and 3x Blupe. After a
scene walk upstairs and open the chest for 148TH.STELLARS: BRIGHT DECIDE.
Approach the strange seal and watch the tutorial about "9-Ward Curse". If you
don't enter properly, once you get in, you won't be able to get out.

Hilda explains: "There are warded doors numbered 1 ot 9. If you don't fulfill
the correct conditions, you can't get through. For example, for a ward that
responds to odd numbers, if you don't go through a 3 or a 5 first, it won't let
you pass."

Examine ward "I" and Hilda gives more hints: "This is ward 1. The start of all
doors. It'll let anyone in, but won't let you out if you don't pass the other
doors." Pass thru the ward and enter the door behind it.

'Statue Hall' - enter E door.

'Corridor' - enter E door.

'East Room' - examine seal "V" and Hilda says: "This ward 5 responds to lesser
numbers. If you want to go through, you should pass through a door less than
5". Pass thru seal, go S and open the chest for ACCESSORIES: FLARE BROOCH, then
examine seal "IV" and Hilda says: "This ward 4 responds to odd numbers. To go
through, you should go through an odd-numbered door first." Pass thru seal,
turn left and search between support beams for ITEMS: SEAL OF SPEED, and take
the door.

'Corridor' - N, around the corner, examine seal "II" and Hilda says: "This ward
2 responds to even numbers. To go through, you should go through an
even-numbered door first." Pass thru seal, and enter the W door.

'West Room' - search the corner for KEY.ITEMS: HERETICAL.TOME, examine seal
"VIII" and Hilda says: "This ward 8 responds to factors. To go through, you
should go through a door with a factor of 8 first." Pass thru seal, and look
for a chest to the immediate right of the seal. Collect RING ITEMS: APATHY 2
from the chest - if you examine seal "VII", Hilda says: "This ward 7 is called
the lucky door. Lost people who pass through this door should be able to go
back outside." Well, you don't need to do that at the moment, so skip it, and
take SE door.

'Corridor' - take immediate E door.

'Statue Hall' You'll be next to ward "VI", Hilda says: "This ward 6 responds to
greater numbers. If you want to go through, you should pass through a door
greater than 6." Pass thru seal, go N and take N door.

'Corridor' - take immediate N door.

'Corridor' - examine seal "III", Hilda says: "This ward 4 responds to
multiples. If you want to go through, you should pass through a multiple of 3
first." Pass thru seal, take W door.

'Children's Room' - search N end for RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND, open the
chest on W end for 149TH.STELLARS: RESURRECTION, back to 'Corridor'.

'Corridor' - go N, examine seal "IX", Hilda says: "This is ward 9. The end of
all doors. Passing through this door should end the 9-Ward Curse." Bye-bye
wards - no more restrictions to moving. Go N.

'Study' - open the chest in NW corner for ITEMS: 13TH.RING.FRAGMENT, then save
your game at SPN. Examine the strange pattern on N wall and insert Heretical
Tome you found. Something will move back in 'Statue Room'. Before leaving,
examine the picture on the left and memorize this place for much later in the
game.

'Corridor' - go S.

'Corridor' - take immediate S door.

'Statue Hall' - the big statue revealed an entrance to underground, so go
downstairs.

'Stairs' - press the light switch to turn on the lights, then search the corner
to the left of the door for ITEMS: THERA ROOT, save at SPN, equip Feather
Bracelets couple with Blood Loss 1 and 2, and enter the door for a boss battle.

Usual procedure applies: use Evil Shade to remove boss' stock, then buff
yourself up with Arc Gale, Arc Surge, and Arc Rage. Don't cast Shield and
Barrier spells, since Tamaris will do the same to self. Feather Bracelets will
shield you from panic, and bring two chrs that have Blood Loss ring items
equipped - doing so will help you inflict some great damage on the boss. Unload
with double combo of physicals with high angle, followed with Evil Servant
barrage.
Once it loses majority of HP, it will cast Spirit Ward to remove one chr from
battle. Nothing you can do about it, except defeating it before it gets the
chance to use it. Arc Cure will take care of healing problems.

      what that is, I ain't telling you. See it for yourself, when you get to

This is the final storyline dungeon of the game.

HINT: So why did we come all the way out here? Because stepping into the final
      dungeon is an important trigger for many of the subquests that have now
      opened up. Once again - YOU HAVE TO ENTER THE GATE AT LEAST ONCE IN ORDER
      TO TRIGGER REMAINING SUBQUESTS.

Talk to Roger to return to world map.

New map location appears:
- WORLD.MAP.POINT.#22: THE GATE

HINT: For the time being I'll skip doing the subquests, because I want to
      submit the guide which contains full walkthru from start to finish of the
      game. All the remaining subquests will be included in next update. Also,
      all bosses in final dungeon (except the final duo) are manageable at
      lv38, which was the level I was at when I arrived in the dungeon. So I'm
      gonna collect everything inside the Gate and then return to world map to

Comboing is very difficult against the boss, because Vice Blade has stock

************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

After you emerge victorious, pat Shania on the back, sit down and enjoy the
ending sequence. You've sure earned it.

HINT: At this moment you'll obtain the bad ending. But fear not, you've still
      got a save left, just before taking on final boss. Want to get the good
      ending? Load the save file just before final boss, and hop on over to
      Epilogue section of this guide.

You'll be prompted to make a clear save file. Make sure you save your game in a
different slot. When you return to the title screen, a new option "Theater" is
added - it allows you to view all spoken and CGI scenes you've witnessed so far
in the game.

Some of the slots will be empty - in order to fill them up, you'll have to get
both endings.

HINT: You don't have to replay the game for the second time, aiming for good
      ending and thus getting the rest of the scenes. Load up the last save you
      made, meet the requirements for good ending, then beat up last boss. When
      asked to save, do so in yet another slot, so you'll have two clear game
      saves - one with bad ending, and one with good ending. By doing so you'll
      unlock all of the scenes.

Nvwoti tells you of a legendary UMA being present somewhere. However, he
doesn't have any clue about its whereabouts or how to locate it. But there's a
research team from Arkham Uni that may know a couple of things.

Go to front of Lovecraft's office and talk to Nasha standing near lamppost. She
tells you that the research team held meeting in library, so you may find
something there. Inside the library talk to McCoy for more info - research team
would put their own materials back into bookshelves. Search the bookshelves and
on one spot there will be a new '?' bubble popping up. Examine it and you'll
obtain KEY.ITEMS: RESEARCH.FILE.

Now for the summed-up clues - "It's location is in Guiana Highlands. To lure
the UMA, the advance team set out a lot of bait, but it was all eaten by other
monsters. To meet the UMA itself, one must eliminate the monsters as you put
out the bait. UMA is very wary and is very sensitive to presence of humans. As
long as humans are nearby, UMA won't show. Only after they leave the area, they
can hear the being being masticated." Remember that whenever you're UMA
hunting, Natan *must* be in your fighting party. Now to Uyuni Salt Lake!

Complicated, it seems. Leave for world map.

HINT: To be able to see next scene, all of 12 Shania's Fetishes for
      Thunderbird, Tatan'ka and La Sirene must be on lv5.

Go see Okanagan (the elder), and she'll ask Shania to return to her home
village to learn some truth about Shania's past. Leave for world map.

New map location appears:
- WORLD.MAP.POINT.#26: GARVOY VALLEY

That was all of the backtracking, now let's dive into the four new dungeons.
I'll begin with Garvoy Valley (take one guess why).

HINT: Shania is a mandatory chr for this dungeon (like I have a problem with
      that.)

Ooooh, look at that - she's also an ONSCREEN CHARACTER!

'First Level' - go past SPN and around what appears to be remains of a well.
Then check below wooden bridge for a '?' bubble to pop up - examine the spot to
obtain 1ST.TIRAWA.FETISH: H'UARARU. Return to SPN and start climbing the outer
path.

Follow along the path sticking to W wall until you hit a crevice - Shania
comments that you need to find a ladder in order to cross further. Follow the
path to E and examine one of ruined houses you'll bump into. Search around the
corner of the house for ITEMS: DAPHNE FRUIT, then cross the wooden bridge. Once
across, turn left and nab the chest for ITEMS: ANGEL SOUFFLE, then return to
bridge and continue to the right to reach a cross. Take left path and ascend to
next area.

'Second Level' - cross the bridge and examine the ruined house to find
ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET. To the left of house there's another of crevices you
need ladder for, so take the other path leading into a corridor. Hug the left
wall until you come to a couple of stones where '?' will pop up. Examine the
spot to find 2ND.TIRAWA.FETISH: HOTORU. Keep walking until the end of corridor
and you'll find another ruined house. Collect KEY.ITEMS: RED.OAK.LADDER on one
side, and RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND on the other side. Return to 'First
Level'.

#22 BEST WEAPONS QUEST, pt. Shania (Rawr!)

'First Level' - return to the crevice you need the ladder for in order to
cross. Put the ladder down, cross to other side, then examine glowing spot for
WEAPONS: WILD MIST (SHANIA'S.BEST.WEAPON). There's another chest further up
with RING ITEMS: STRIKE EXPAND. Go back across the ladder, make sure to pick it
up, and return to 'Second Level'.

'Second Level' - cross the bridge to ruined house, then place the ladder on
nearby crevice to grant you access further up.

'Corridor' - hug the right wall and collect ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER, then go all
the way to the highway.

HINT: There're four bridges in 'Third Level', where event battles take place
      once you attempt to cross such a bridge. When you win, the bridge becomes
      unpassable.

'Third Level' - I'll be referencing to R1 navigation map for this area. You
appeat in this area on E entrance, and you gotta make it to N exit. Let's begin
- cross bridge to N, examine the pot for ITEMS: TENT, return across same
bridge, take bridge to S. Now take the bridge leading NNW, then take the bridge
leading S. Open the chest for ITEMS: THERA EXTRACT, then return across same
bridge. Take the bridge leading SW, and examine the remains of ruined house for
ACCESSORIES: DREAM PORTER, cross bridge leading E to reach SPN. Save your game,
then examine remains of ruined ladder for ACCESSORIES: 2ND.CRUCIFIX. Return
across the bridge you took, then cross bridge leading N, examine ruined house
for 3RD.TIRAWA.FETISH: SHAKURU, cross bridge leading SW, poke near the wall for
ITEMS: PURE EXTRACT, return across the bridge you took, take bridge leading NE,
open N door.

'Sky Sacred Area' - walk past first two totems, and then hug the left edge
until '?' bubble pops up. Examine the spot to obtain 4TH.TIRAWA.FETISH: CHAHURU
and then carry on further N.

HINT: Next boss battle is fought by Shania and John only.

'Gateway' - make sure you save, and then step into the golden light.

Remove boss' stock first, then affect Tirawa with Sp-Defend Down and P-Attack
Down, then continue bashing it up with magic attacks (throw in Arc Surge for
good measure). Tirawa's rephys remove about half of attacked chr's HP, so
counteract with Arc Shield. Use John's new ability he acquired sometime back
and try to combo together skills that hit lots of times.

Once Tirawa's HP hits red range, Sunlit Vale is cast - means it's time for you
to go on the defensive until Tirawa wastes 5 turns and buffs wear off. If
Tirawa gets the chance to double on you, you'll be hit with Shine Zephyr,
followed by rephy.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

After the battle you obtain ACCESSORIES: THOR'S BELT.

Shania now gains new Fusion in her Special Ability repertoire (see section 10
of this guide for complete info on her Fusions):

#11 MUSE ITEMS QUEST, pt.3, continued

HINT: Ric is a mandatory chr for this dungeon.

'Hall' - you'll begin here. Open chest on left for ITEMS: MANA EXTRACT, then
climb right stairs and nab ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET next to painting. Enter N room
on lower floor for a scene.

'Grand Hall' - there's an unfinished doll on the table in here. The doll can
speak, but she can't hear you, so go and fetch a pair of ears. Search the small
table for ITEMS: ANGEL SOUFFLE. Exit the room and turn left into 'Workshop'.

'Workshop' - Hug W wall as you go up and pick up SUPER.SECRET.ITEM: CLOTH EARS,
then nail chest for ITEMS: PURE EXTRACT. In NW corner of the room you will find
SUPER.SECRET.ITEM: ANIMAL CLOTH EARS (these are the correct ears you need), and
if you examine the table in middle of the room, you can find
SUPER.SECRET.ITEM: WAX EARS. Return to 'Grand Hall'.

'Grand Hall' - put the animal skin ears on the doll. She introduces herself as
Latisha - she got trapped in the doll, and she wants you to dispel the barrier
over second floor of the house. To do that, you need to gather dolls' eyes from
Latisha's bedroom. Latisha says: "Bring me the two that expel evil spirits...
the ruby and lapis lazuli... and put them in my eyes. The purple light created
by the two stones together will dispel the barrier." BTW, should you mess up
when retrieving the gems, you'll be under attack. More hints: "First you take
out the eyes of death. Hate is after scorn, despair is after death..." Exit
'Grand Hall' and turn right into 'Study'.

'Study' - check the SE bookcase for RING ITEMS: SP-DEFEND DOWN 3, then NE
corner chest for ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER, then enter N door.

'Bedroom' - this room has four dolls. Despair doll in NW corner, rage doll in
middle of the room, scorn doll in NE corner, death doll in SE corner. There's
also a chest with ACCESSORIES: SARAPE ADORNO in E end. Start with SE doll and
take out her eyes for KEY.ITEMS: EYE.OF.DEATH, then do the same with NW doll
for KEY.ITEMS: EYE.OF.DESPAIR, NE doll for KEY.ITEMS: EYE.OF.SCORN, and central
doll for KEY.ITEMS: EYE.OF.RAGE. Return to 'Grand Hall'.

'Grand Hall' - examine Latisha and put Despair Eye in her right eye, and then
Rage Eye in her left eye. Go outside, climb the stairs to 2nd floor and enter N
door.

'Drawing Room' - examine NW corner for RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND, then save
your game and enter N room.

'Chamber of Revival' - looks bad... bad enough for a boss.

against it.

#14 NATAN'S UMA HUNTS QUEST, pt.6, continued

HINT: Natan is a mandatory chr for this dungeon.

HINT: While you'll be walking around, you'll come across lots of meat bubble
      icons popping up all over the place. I advise you to ignore them and
      place the baits only when I specify so in the walkthru.

'Corridor, S part' - walk N, 1stcross, Natan finds a skeleton and a scene
occurs in which you learn some clues on UMA: "It likes sweets, and it feeds by
dropping a hive on a rock after the bees have left. But if hive is exposed to
sun and dries up, it loses all interest." Take E path and hug S edge -
eventually you'll find (near the base of a tree) ITEMS: LOTTERY TICKET (just as
you're about to enter next clearing).

2ndcross, take W dead end to find another skeleton and more clues on UMA:
"Before UMA hunts, it removes own scent by washing itself in a nearby body of
water. There are three bodies of water in Guiana. When UMA is hunting prey, it
is more sensitive than usual to the presence of humans and can sense even one
hair." Back to 2ndcross, go N, screen switch.

'Corridor, NE part' - N, 3rdcross, E, hug S edge, collect ITEMS: FRUITY FIBER
nearby flowers you'll come across, 4thcross, W dead end, meat bubble icon will
show ("The thicket of trees cast a shadow on the spotted rocks."), place Honey
trap and win event battle against 6x Seymouria. UMA will begin "sloppily eating
the trap" after the battle. Natan comments: "It disappeared... No. It is
putting distance between us, and watching us."

Back to 4thcross, N, 5thcross, N towards the waterfall, hug left edge to
collect ITEMS: MANA EXTRACT, back to 5thcross, S, 4thcross, S, 3rdcross, W,
examine the rocks in the corner for ACCESSORIES: METEOR MASK, back to 3rdcross,
S, screen switch.

'Corridor, S part' - S, 2ndcross, E, you'll reach a waterfall and meat bubble
icon will show ("There is a wide open body of water."), place Maiden's Hair
trap, back to 2ndcross, SW, 1stcross, NW, 6thcross, E, examine dead end for
ITEMS: DAPHNE FRUIT, back to 6thcross, NW, screen switch.

'Corridor, NW part' - N, hug the right edge until you bump into a rock, examine
it to nab ITEMS: THERA EXTRACT, 7thcross, W dead end, you'll find another
skeleton for more clues on UMA: "UMA can fly, and likes to eat sour fruit on
top of tall trees. On some trees, there are claw marks from where the UMA
latched on. On the other hand, UMA doesn't like shiny or sticky things. It
won't even come close to an area that has them. Taking advantage of these
tendencies, is it possible to trap UMA at its destination?"

Back to 7thcross, E, hug right edge, examine nearby rock to obtain
RING ITEMS: P-DEFEND DOWN 3, back to 7thcross, NW, 8thcross, W dead end, you'll
find another waterfall and meat bubble icon will show ("There is a wide open
body of water."), place Maiden's Hair bait, back to 8thcross, N, immediately
hug right edge to collect RING ITEMS: HIT AREA EXPAND, back to 8thcross, SE,
7thcross.

Examine the tree in this crossroads meat bubble icon to show ("On the trunk of
the claw-marked tree, there is a large crack bathing in the sun's rays. If a
brilliant stone was laid on it, it would reflect the sunlight well."), place
Gold Ore bait, now take NE path, 8thcross, N, hug left edge for meat bubble
icon to show ("On the trunk of the claw-marked tree, sap is oozing out. If a
conspicuous powder were applied, it would stick to the bark, and the tree could
probably be seen from afar."), place Morpho Scales bait, back to 8thcross, SE,
7thcross, S, screen switch.

'Corridor, S part' - S, 6thcross, S, 1stcross, E, 2ndcross, check the trees
around this crossroad for meat bubble icon to show ("On the trunk of the
claw-marked tree, several long branches shoot out. Something could be hung off
the ends of the branches if a sticky substance were applied so it could resist
the wind."), place Fly Paper bait, N, screen switch.

'Corridor, NE part' - N, 3rdcross, examine the trees around this crossroad for
meat bubble icon to show ("On the trunk of the claw-marked tree, a gaping hole
has been opened. It seems a round object would fit right in."), place
Grapefruit bait, win event battle against 3x Soldes, watch a scene ("You hear
the uncanny sound of the UMA crunching sloppily on fruit..."), Natan comments:
"It disappeared... No. It is putting distance between us, and watching us."

Still at 3rdcross, E, 4thcross, N, 5thcross, N, you're near body of water and
meat bubble icon shows ("There is a wide open body of water."), place Hare
bait, win event battle against 2x Ananka, watch a scene ("You hear the sound of
the UMA eating a small animal in one gulp."), Natan comments: "Its thirst for
blood has gone away. Perhaps it is now full. Full beasts should return to their
lair."

Almost done! S, 5thcross, S, 4thcross, S, 3rdcross, W, screen switch.

'Corridor, center' - hug right edge to collect ITEMS: ANGEL SOUFFLE, 9thcross,
make sure to use SPN, take N exit.

'Outback' - Konichiwa!

Wear Pocket Watches or Crucifixes to be immune to ring statuses, and equip chrs

Shania into Tirawa and toss Sanlittobell for some major buffing.
Once boss is affected with Slow and Sp-Defend Down, enter combo city and toss
its ass back where it came from. Mudo will try to use Gale now and then to
regain the upper hand, but you simply use the chr with Slow ring item to fix
the situation. As usual, letting the boss double on you can spell disaster, so
make sure you don't let it accumulate any stock.

HINT: Frank is a mandatory chr for this dungeon.

So, how do you use Momonga Arts? When the gauge appears, press X button and the
bar moves toward the left. Press X button again and the gauge stops. The Number
where the bar stops is about the distance you'll fly. Also, if the bar goes to
the left before you press X button, you'll have to do it over again. Next, once
the distance is set, the bar will move to the right. Press X button again and
stop the bar in the blue area... voila, Momonga Arts success! If you fail at
this point, you'll fall off scaffolding and may end up somewhere else.

HINT: Counter in upper right corner denotes how many times you jumped.

After you win stage 5, a strange insignia appears on the ground. Examine it and

'Hall of Selection' - John finds himself alone in a big room. There are six
doors to choose from, and each door has a unique color - colors correspond to
elemental affinities of the six missing chrs. So purple color denotes Shania,
white color denotes Frank and so on.

HINT: Behind each door you'll find 3 unique random enemies and a boss. Once you
      beat the boss, you cannot return to that part of dungeon, so make sure
      you snap everything before challenging the boss.

Naturally I'll go and rescue Shania first - her Sanlittobell skill is
invaluable. So choose purple door first and let's dive.

Suck away Ava's stock, then bash into its HP reserves with fire magic. Change
Shania into Tirawa and toss Sanlittobell for some major buffing, then bring
down Avarice. Don't let it double on you or feel the pain. Crucifixes will be
nice when equipped, and have chrs wear Evasion Down ring items, making boss
less likely to evade your physicals. Use Shining Zephyr if you'll be in need of
healing.

-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY -------------------- party: lv65

A few tips and pointers...
- have a decently leveled party, at least lv65+
- include Curvy Hilda cos she has Full Bloom skill, the only way to completely
  heal everyone (Tirawa's Shining Zephyr and Arc Cure just don't suffice)
- have Crucifixes equipped (failing that, at least Pocket Watches)
- Jealousy begins with full stock, so remove it ASAP
- never let it gain any stock, or its double attack will reduce your numbers
  and you may even face a defeat in battle
- never cast any buff spells (not even during combos), or Jealousy counters
  with Lost Progress; this is bad for two reasons - one is that your buffs are
  void, and other is that boss gains some stock
- equip stellars with hard hit property
- once boss loses 75% HP, it'll cast Spirit Ward to remove one chr from battle
- before it can cast Spirit Ward, start a big chain to reduce as much of its HP
  as possible
- don't forget to shoot the boss for its snap card
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! **************************

Once boss croaks, you'll acquire ETHER PURGE skill.

HINT: If you get KOed during battle with Jealousy, you will not receive Game
      Over - instead you're returned to Garland Residence. If you want to, you
      can retry the boss battle... but you have to do entire Purgatory again
      from scratch. You keep the stuff you acquired during first trip, though.

That was the final subquest of the game. All that remains is to enter The Gate
and defeat the final storyline boss duo. Make sure you take their snaps so that
your Snap collection becomes complete.

FIX UP CHAPTER 8 HEADING.

1. Send your comments, ideas for improvements, additional info, correction of
mistakes I may have made, and anything else via e-mail at:

lifearmor (at) gmail (dot) com

I need to put down a few guidelines.
- As a subject of e-mail please include Shadow Hearts: From the New World or
  SHFTNW.
- Please make your e-mail be readable, ie do not send me e-mails that are
  written badly or in some strange gibberish.
- Don't ask me to send you updated versions of our guide, because I won't.
- *Make sure* to check if your question is already answered within these pages;
  I may reply to one of your questions, but if you'll persevere in asking more
  questions which are answered in my guide, I'll simply direct you to my guide.
- I accept e-mails in English, German, Croatian and Slovenian language.
- I will answer e-mails in English, Croatian or Slovenian language; I can read
  and understand German well, but my writing skills of German have rusted,
  therefore I will answer such e-mails in English.
- When crediting contributors, I won't disclose their e-mails.
- Finally, treat me as you'd like me to treat you.
