Walkthrough - English Version, Spoiler-Free by Damieus email@example.com -------------------- Introduction -------------------- I made the last version of this walkthrough from my actual play, but I missed many things, including several critical ones. So to make up for my mistakes, I bought the guide and used it to check my progress. This guide takes information both from my own play experiences and from the guide itself. Enjoy. I'll finish all the appendicies as time permits. Version 1.00 Finally done with the walkthrough. Version 1.01 Minor changes due to my error. 1.00 will probably never show up on Gamefaqs. Version 1.02 A few things had to be altered, again, due to my error. Added my email address. -------------------- Table of Contents -------------------- Basic Hints bschints Walkthrough- Disc 1 wlkthds1 Iselia iselstrt Martel Temple marttemp Return to Iselia rtrnisel Iselia Forest iselfrst Dirk's House dirkhous Back to Iselia Again bcktoisl Iselia to Triet isltotrt Triet dsrttret Sylvarant Base sylvbase Back to Triet bcktotrt Triet Ruins trtruins Ossa Trail ossatral Izoold fishizld Palmacosta plmacsta Thoda Geyser thdagysr Hakonesia Peak hknsiapk Palmacosta Ranch plmarnch Back to Palmacosta bcktoplm Passing through the Pass passpass Northern Continent Exploration nrthncnt Asgard asgrdrun Balacrut Mausoleum balcrutm Luin luinsrun Asgard Ranch asgrrnch Tower of Mana towrmana Saving Private Pietro svinpiet Tower of Salvation towrsave Aftermath aftermth ********************** Past here, I will use placenames that might be considered spoilers.

I will try to point out the good Grade places. -Keep track of your stats and what title you have equipped. Rotating out the good titles is a good way to get good stats. Any title is better than the default one. -The options that you get affect the relationships with your friends, but rarely the actual game's progression. There is one example of when it matters, but I will note it. ************************************************** SPOILER!!!! But if I don't tell you, you may not get what you want at the end of the game.... ************************************************** -Your relationship with Zelos and Kratos will matter late in the game. Which- ever character you personally like better, keep their relationship high, the lower one, low. *********************************************** -------------------- Walkthrough- Disc 1 wlkthds1 -------------------- First off, there are several hidden titles that you can mess up long before you ever get them. Specifically: -Lloyd: "Brave Soul"- Never run from any battles until you fight a boss battle against a guy named Yuan. -Lloyd: "Gung Ho"- Very very much later, you can get this title if you have a low level with your party. The boss is Rodyle, and he is close to the end of disc 1, approximatly 30-40 hours into the game. You must have a combined level of no higher than 145 between the four characters you use. This means you must pretty much rush through, avoiding fights and fighting people at a very low level. I've never gotten the title, so I can't tell you if its worth it. Honestly, the EXP 1/2 option in New Game + is probably the only way to do it. -Lloyd: "Eternal Apprentice" - Don't take off your wooden sword until you beat the Back to Palmacosta section of this walkthrough. Don't unequip it at all, even if you don't fight with the other weapon. -Colette: "Friendship First" - Again, I've never gotten it, but no one in your party can die until the fight with Iubaris in the Tower of Mana. -Genis: "I Hate Gels!" - Another I've never gotten. Don't use gels until after the battle with Pronyma in Back to Fooji Mountains. Iselia iselstrt -------------------- -Head for the exit. -Get your friends in your party. -Talk to the blue-haired kid to get (Magic Lens) -Examine the hole in the wall to get a new title for Colette, "Klutz". -Skit: "It'll be fine." -Go outside. -After story, save and try to leave the town. An event will occur. -After the event, but before exiting, explore a bit. -Go to the west part of town. In the first house you come to, you can be healed fully. -In the southern part of town is a shop. Buy Magic Lenses first, 20 of em. This is to scan new enemies as you run into them. Keep yourself stocked on Lenses at all times so you can always scan enemies. Scan every enemy at least once, including all the bosses. -You can equip up to two boots on each character. And you will be getting a fourth character soon. You won't have enough money for everything you want now but you'll be getting more very soon, by building up. -Head out of the north exit of town. Martel Temple marttemp -------------------- My Level: 1 (5 when I went in the temple) New Enemies: Wolf, Rabbit, Hawk, Foot Soldier, Vidarr, Ghost, Golem, Slime, Spider, Zombie -First thing to do is get a new title for Genis. Set him to manual for a battle, but don't touch the controller that you have him set up for. If he doesn't do anything for the whole battle, he'll get a new title: "Dependant" Switch him to this title immediately. -You should get a title for Lloyd now too. The way to do this is to do three different attacks (like Forward-A, A, Down-A) and then finish it with (B-Demon Fang). If you successfully connect all the strikes, he will get the title: "Tetra Slash". -You may also be able to get "Combo Newbie" by linking 10 hits together. This can be done by timing it so that you hit the enemy with a five hit combo (forward-A, A, A, B) then, hopefully, another person will hit them. While the other person is hitting them, hit the enemy with another 5-hit combo to get the title. Basically, the trick is to time it so your ally hits the enemy in between your two combos. If you can't do it here, it will be easy to do later. -The temple is just to the north, but take a few minutes to build up. I'd recommend only fighting the flat enemies, since you will have an easier time surviving and you will get more grade. If you win without doing too bad, you should be able to rack up 1.5 to 3 points per battle! Which is really good. -I got up to level 5 before continuing, but 4 is more than enough to beat the temple. The money you get here can buy more boots if you want em. -Go up the stairs of the temple for your first boss fight. -Boss Battle: Vidarr If you built up, this is easy. I didn't even get hit in the first part of the battle. However, even if you die horribly, you'll be saved after a moment. You get a new character with which to finish the fight, and he will heal you throughout the battle. If you get low on HP, back off for a moment to be healed. You can hit Y and go the Strategy screen to set your new friend to Heal priority. He also guards a lot, which can be broken, or you can wait for him to attack and counter. Or you can try to get behind the boss, where a single strike to the back will break his guard. -You can head back to Iselia to heal for free. -Go inside the temple. -You get the (Training Manual) from Kratos. -Go to the right from the lobby of the Temple. -Go downstairs and you will see the Golems. Fight one. Then there is an event. -Push Golem blocks through the holes until you have made a path to the left, right, and center. On the right and left are (Panacea Bottle) and (Life Bottle). Center is the Sorcerer's Ring. -Go back up to the Golem level and take the left staircase. Upstairs are (Apple Gel) (Life Bottle) and (250 Gald) -Go back to the Golem level and take the right staircase. This is the way you came in. Circle back to the lobby. Take the center path and shoot the barrier with the ring (X button). -Yay, we're done. Exit the temple, head back to Iselia. Return to Iselia rtrnisel -------------------- -When you come into the city, go into the classroom and talk to Raine to get a new title for Genis, "Brotherly Love". -Behind the store, in the tunnel, is a man with "Grapes". You have to navigate through obstacles to get to him. -Go to Colette's House to get (Collector's Book) -Go to Genis' house to get Sandwich recipe and read a book on Desians. -Leave through the south exit. -Before you leave, buy an extra Chakrum at the shop. It will help you later. Iselia Forest iselfrst -------------------- New Enemies: Giant Bee, Minicoid, Spider, Whip Master Items: Apple Gel x3, Life Bottle, Orange Gel x2, Leather Glove, 500 Gald -From now on I will list the chests there are in an area. I will detail any weird ones, but basically, check every pathway possible. -Once you head north out of the first screen of the Forest, you will see a save point and the entrance to the ranch. After talking to Genis, save. Head west to enter the ranch. -After the story section, go to the west. There should be a scene with an old lady. -After that, go east and jump up the cliff. There is a chest here. (Orange Gel) -Scan these enemies to get Whip Master. -Genis leaves. Head north to continue. -On the west side of the river, to the north, is the (Leather Glove) -On the east side of the bridge is a bag on a tree branch, run up and around onto the branch to get the bag. (Orange Gel) -Exit to the north, then head to Dirks House. Dirk's House dirkhous -------------------- -Go inside, talk to Dirk. There will be story, then you sleep. You can improve your relationships by chatting with your other friends before going off with Colette. -The next day, go outside to the grave to talk to Dirk again. This will net you 2 Apple Gels, Life Bottle, 500 Gald, and the Sylvarant Map. Yay. Back to Iselia Again bcktoisl -------------------- My Level: 7 New Enemies: Bowman, Whip Master, Exbelua -Talk to Frank. -Go south of here to clear this area. Then exit out to the north part of town. -Clear this area, then go to the south. -Boss Battle: Exbelua This boss was easy for me, just guard the swing attacks and hit X in the air if you are knocked back. Iselia to Triet isltotrt -------------------- My Level: 8 New Enemies: Tenticle Plant (only in the woods), Scorpion, Sidewinder, Theif (all in the desert) -Go South to Nova's Caravan. You can heal here for free. South of that is a Temple of Salvation. -Outside the temple, there is a traveller who will give you the guidepost for this region. -Almost exactly due west of here, in the trees, is a chest containing an (EX Gem 1) -Keep going south to find Triet, in the desert. If you head east from Triet then cut north, you will find the guidepost for Triet. -The desert is a fantastic place to get Grade Points. The flat dudes give you 1.5 to 2 Grade per fight, if you do well. A trick I use is to change to manual mode and run towards the enemies, angling up at the last second. You should be able to jump over them. Then turn around and kill them from behind. Triet dsrttret -------------------- New Enemies: Bowman -Talk to the guy who calls you over to him as you go north from the entrance. -Inside the inn, on the upper level, all the way to the right is the Wonder Chef. He teaches you Cabbage Roll. Which I use throughout the game. -Go to the northern part of town to find the food shop and the fortune teller. Talk to the fortune teller and pay 100 Gald to get information. You can then talk to her a second time (and any time throughout the game) to find out what the other characters you've met think of you. -After you've done all you need to do, exit through the south. Here is the bowman to scan. Sylvarant Base sylvbase -------------------- My Level: 9 New Enemies: Foot Soldier (these may be the same guys from the temple), Raybit Botta Items: Beast Hide, Memory Gem, Beast Fang, Magical Cloth, 1500 Gald. -Shoot the guard with X to open the cell. -Open the cell to the west to get (Beast Hide) -Go east, open a chest near the entrance to get your stuff back. Then continue east then north. -To open this door, use the machine to change your ring, then stun the raybits on top of the blue platforms, both at the same time, to energize the door. -Fight the soldier in the next area to get the (Memory Gem). Go north to find a shop. From where the soldier was, continue west. Use the Gem in the next room. -Shoot the top column then the middle column. The red gem should be south. Go south to get a (Magical Cloth). -Shoot the bottom column then head east. The east passage should have a chest containing (1500 Gald). -Shoot the top column and the middle column. Green should be north. Go north. -Boss Battle: Botta This guy is actually pretty tough, though Kratos will heal you. Make sure your friends are all set to Attack Same, so that you can wipe out one enemy at a time. Kill his cronies, then take him out. Back to Triet bcktotrt -------------------- -Go to the north of Triet, to the House of Salvation and talk to the dog with Colette at the head of the party. -Southeast from the base, on a piece of grassland sticking into the ocean is your first skit point. -Back inside Triet, you get a lot of story. Then you get the Monster List. It is already filled with all the info you have accumulated so far. -Talk to the guy on the shore of the oasis in the north part of town (not the kid on the bridge) to find out more story. -Talk to the dog with Colette at the head of the party. You will be doing this a lot. -Now that you have Raine, at the southwestern point of the continent, there is another skit point. Southwest of Triet is the ruins. Triet Ruins trtruins -------------------- My Level: 11 New Enemies: Brown Pot (ugh), Fake, Fire Bird, Fire Element, Fire Warrior, Ktugach, Ktugachling Items: Lemon Gel, Memory Gem, Mumei, 1000 Gald, Stiletto, Savory, Bracelet, Circlet, Spirit Bottle, Life Bottle, All-Divide -Go up to the entrance to get a new title for Raine: "Archeological Mania" -Take the south door first, lighting the torch that is upstairs to the left, then the torch on the right. Don't miss the chest with the rocks on top of it. (Use sorcerer's ring to clear the rocks) -Go in the center door and push the blocks off the west edge, towards the torch. Go up the stairs to get three chests. Just south when you first come through the door is another chest, and up to the north, around behind the column are two more. -Go through the top door, ignoring the chest. (It's a fake). Go around to the west, pushing the block in next to the chest and torch. Light the torch, then run up the stairs to open the save point. Save, then go back to the fake and fight it. This is a good time to get a title for Lloyd. Set the best spell for Genis to C-up, and the best spell for Kratos to C-down. Then set Raine to heal. Use Lloyd to draw the Fake's attacks, but you can't hurt him with physical attacks. Use the C commands. As soon as they are done casting, use them again. If you can pull off 10 commands in the battle, you will get "Boorish General". -Now go through the warp next to the save point to fight the boss. -Boss Battle: Ktugach This guy is easy as pie. Kill his cronies, but save Lloyd's TP. Then use Tempest over and over again. Since he is so long, the tempest hits him many times. Don't forget to scan. Ossa Trail ossatral -------------------- My Level: 13 New Enemies: Archer, Axe Beak, Bear, Clumsy Assassin, Guardian-Wind, Mandragora, Sword Dancer (Much Later), Theif, Witch Items: Battle Staff, Melange Gel, Apple Gel, Orange Gel, Fine Guard, Black Silver, Beast Fang, Ex Gem 1 -First go back to Triet to get a new title for Raine: "Sisterly Love" -Then go to the east and north to the Ossa Trail. -The path is straight, the chests are off to the sides. -At the top is a save point. -This is another good building up place, since the battles give you about 100 XP. -Boss Battle: Clumsy Assassin Scan boss and crony. Kill the assassin first, then kill the crony. Shouldn't be too hard. -Try to leave the area after the fight to get U Attacks. Then go back into the tunnel. Get the chests, one to the right and all the way south, then one to the left and all the way north. Then go north to the next screen. Here there are two chests and an optional boss. I would wait to fight him and I will tell you in the walkthrough when I think you should go back. If you think you can take him, try it. You won't game over, he'll just tell you to get lost if you lose. -Head out of Ossa Trail. Izoold fishizld -------------------- -Far to the south is a skit point. -Just north and a little west of Izoold is a Lemon Gel. -Farther north, around the mountains, a bit west, is the guidepost. From there you can see a skit point across on the northern continent. Don't linger on the north continent, and I'd avoid enemies, but go ahead and grad the skit point. -Then go south to Izoold. -First, talk to the guy with the blue beard at the entrance to town. -In the Inn is a skit, when you rest. In the next house to the right is Lyla. Talk to her. -Then in the next house is the Wonder Chef. He always looks like some out of place object. You'll learn "Rice Ball" -Go to the dock area and talk to Lyla to get her letter. You can play EB with the cat to win some prizes (Easy, Normal, and Hard give you prizes) -There is a dog to talk to in this town as well. -When you're ready to leave, talk to Max. Palmacosta plmacsta -------------------- -All sorts of stuff to do here. Shops and stuff. Save at least 1000 Gald. -Talk to the dog behind the food shop with Colette at the head of the party. -When your equipped, head to the southern part of town. -After the scene, go east to the second building. Buy the potion. -If you don't have the Gald, skip ahead to the waitress section. -Once you've paid your debt, go east to the other part of town. -There is another dog here for Colette to name. -Look at the ship on the dock to meet your travelling companion. -Go to the chapel (middle building) and talk to March. -Go to the school, just east of the chapel and accept the challenge. -There in the lobby is a giant rack of balls. Weird, huh? Chef gives you Omelets. -Go east to the second door and be a waitress. The trick is to jot down the people's orders shorthand, along with an identifying mark, like hair color and gender. If you do decently, you will get a new title for Colette, "Turbo Waitress" -Go upstairs into the first door. The answers are Guardian, Acceleration, and I don't know. -Then go to the second door to get a new title: "Honor Roll" for Genis. -Outside, head to the large building on the left of this area. Talk to a guard and train with Kratos. -Then, go in that building and talk to Dorr. -Once you've done that, stock up and head outside of the town.

Once at geyser, Adulocia, Ampitra, Gloat Dragon, Green Roper, Octoslime, Starfish, Water Element Items: Ex Gem 2, Magic Mist -Just east is Nova's Caravan. Talk to the girl to get the Linkite Nut. -Then south, on the most southern part of the continent, behind a mountain, is an Ex Gem 2. Go east along the shore, then go north when you can't go east anymore. There is the guidepost. Head east from there, then north along the mountains. Then turn south. There is Thoda Geyser. I like to do this first, though you can actually do it later. -There's a dog on the docks. -Take the... ferry... to the geyser. -There are two dogs here at the geyser. -Check out the platform on the eastern side of the area to go inside. -According to the guide, there is a hidden chest to the right of the entrance but I don't know if it's inside or outside. -Go inside, run past the device that changes your ring, down the right path. -Keep heading down the stairs and around until you get to a doorway. -Go into the next section, push the block onto the weird looking tile. -Go back into the device room and head south through the left path. -Light the torches. -Change your ring, then go back down the left path. Shoot water into the urn. -Head down past the block you moved and fight the monster guarding the second urn. Shoot water into this urn. -Go back up to where you shot water into the first urn and head east from the save point, into what looks like the right wall of the room. -Then save and head west and warp to the boss. -Boss Battle: Adulocia As always, kill the cronies first. Then use Lighting against the boss. Hakonesia Peak hknsiapk -------------------- My Level: 20 New Enemies: None -Go north to Hakonesia. Talk to the old geezer. -Along the mountain range, to the east, is a Magic Mist. Also, up on the large jut of land that pokes out to the northeast is a guidepost. -Stop at the Palmacosta House of Salvation and go inside. Talk to your buddy. -There is another dog here to talk to. -Return to Palmacosta. Go to the part of town with the School. -Go back to the House of Salvation, talk to the Palmacosta soldier that should appear. -Now go to Palmacosta Ranch, which is north of the Thoda Docks. Palmacosta Ranch plmarnch -------------------- My Level: 21 New Enemies: Magnius, Evil Sorcerer -Talk to Neil. You get to choose which way you want to go. There are minor differences, but just for simplicities sake, we'll do the ranch first. -Change the function of the ring. Use it often to reveal the treasures in this area. If there is anything particularly important, I'll point it out. -Take the door on the left. There is an enemy here with a memory gem. There are also several treasures in this section of the dungeon. -Go back to the sorcerer's ring device room and go east. There are items here. Touch the floating orb that appears with your ring. Criss the bridge and kill the soldier to get the Purple Card. If you take the bridge north, there is a Life Bottle. -Turn off the bridges when you leave these rooms. -In the center room, use the radar ring to go through the warp. -Go west, get the Blue Card. -Go east and use the ring to reveal boxes. Push boxes into the holes to reach an Ex Gem 2. Hit the orb in this room to make another bridge east. Colette will grab you the Red Card. Turn off the bridge when you leave -Now you can go north from the save point. Use the warp. -Follow this series of warps to get through the warp puzzle. Some of the items will trigger alarms and you'll have to fight for your prize. -There is a Melange Gel in the first room. Take the left warp. -In the second room, take north warp. On the next area is an Apple Gel. Take the Green Warp at the top of this area. -If you turned off the bridges, you can get a Panacea Bottle. -Warp back to the labyrinth. Take the bottom warp. Then take the red warp on the left. -Take the south warp to get a Life Bottle. Take the north warp to go back. -Now go north and head left. There is an Orange Gel here. Take the left warp out of this room. -Go north again, then west. This will take you to an event. Once the event is over, take the north blue warp point. -If you screw up, take the middle warp in any room to go back to the beginning. -Boss Battle: Magnius I'm not gonna bother with strategies anymore unless there's some specific easy way to deal with the boss. Just fight him. Cronies first, as always. Back to Palmacosta bcktoplm -------------------- My Level: 22 New Enemies: The Boss of the Area -Go to the shop where you bought the potion and talk to the shopkeeper. -Go to the Government Building and head downstairs. -Talk to Dorr, go through the event.

Northern Continent Exploration nrthncnt -------------------- New Enemies: Harpy, Marcroid (in forest), Velocidragon, Warrior, Sorcerer -Hit the House of Salvation, along the path. Talk to the guy inside. -There is a dog here. -Go north from the House and you'll run into Lake Umacy. Almost directly north of the Lake is a skit point. Run west and north along the mountain range until there is a gap that goes east. When you hit the shoreline, go south for another skit point. -Go west from here. You will see a piece of land north of a city that a thin strip of water on both sides. Go north onto this land and you will see a Tower. Just northeast of the tower is a treasure. (Ex Gem 2) -Go southwest along the mountains to find the guidepost. -Then head back to the east and south, around the city. There will be skit point southwest of the city. -Now go into the city of Luin. In the item shop is a pig. Talk to the pig. Wonder Chef time. -I wouldn't buy anything here. There is another shop we're about to go to with better stuff. -From the west exit of Luin, go north onto the pennisula. There is a treasure about 2/3rd of the way up (Technical Ring) and a skit point at the top. -Almost straight south of there, a little west, against the mountains is another skit point. -Keep going south and west along the mountains, then east when you can. There is a city, Hima. Get some new stuff at this shop. There are two dogs here. -Then, from Hima, go south and around that mountain range to the east. There is a guidepost and a skit point. -Now I recommend leveling up and fighting the Sword Dancer. I like to be level 25 before I take him on. To get to him, go south from here and across the bridge. He's in the tunnel in Ossa Trail. -The Dancer is still tough, but you can take him. Use Eruption on him and guard when he attacks. My trick is to use Eruption, then while he's being hit, hit with Lloyd and use a tetra slash. -Once you are done, go to Asgard. It is just north of the Hakonesia pass. Asgard asgrdrun -------------------- My Level: 25 New Enemies: Windmaster -Two dogs in this city, one in the west area and one in the east. -Go through the crumbling archway. Go up to the platform. Go behind the platform. -Go to the east side of town, in a building up one flight of stairs. -Speak with the mayor at the platform. -Boss: Windmaster -Stay an extra night in the inn to train with Kratos. -Once you beat Asgard, the Wonder Chef is upstairs in Linar's House. Balacrut Mausoleum balcrutm -------------------- My Level: 27 New Enemies: Arachnid, Gargoyle, Guardian-Lightning, Harpy, Iapyx, Melting Pot Skeleton, Wind Element -There is a dog here, but I think it already has a name, try anyway. -Outside the temple is a chest with 1800 Gald. It is to the left. -Go east, hit the chest. -The Memory Gem is all the way west of here, on an enemy on a stairwell. -Go north, past the spikey traps. Light the torches next to the door to open it. Then change your ring's function (if you want to use the walkthrough for the puzzle). Go west from here and then north and south to get the treasures. -All the rest of blocks and torches in this room only help you get clues to complete the puzzle. When you are ready, go north, through the door. -If you happen to be color-blind, this puzzle will be hard, so here are the locations of the fans. -Red:Upper-Left, Green:Lower-right, Blue:Center, Yellow:Bottom-right, White: Bottom-Left (im doing this from memory, so yellow and green might be mixed up) -To get Ex Gem 2, use the ring on the fans in this order, Red, Green, Yellow, White, Blue. -To get Blue Ribbon, use the ring on Blue, Red, Yellow, White, Green -To get to the boss, Red, Yellow, Green, White, Blue -If you want the clues and figure out the puzzle yourself, follow the next part. -Go up the stairs near the entrance and cross this floor spike (walk slowly to avoid the spikes) Use the ring to ignite the braziers. -Boss: Iapyx, then another boss before you leave. Luin luinsrun -------------------- -Go to the west side of town to get a new character in your party. Asgard Ranch asgrrnch -------------------- My Level: 28 New Enemies: Spearman -Grab the Beast Hide in the courtyard. -There's really only one way to go, through the northwest door in the lobby. -Next to the wrecked weapon shop in Luin you can talk to a guy and train with Kratos again. -Go to Hima. In the inn, there is a Wonder Chef. Talk to the lady on the stairs -Go up to the gravesites, on the second level of the town. -Get the Desian Orb. -Go to the top of the mountain to talk to a guy about dragons. -Now go back to the ranch. Examine the boulder at the entrance to get inside. -Take a healer with your group cause you'll be fighting the boss. The other group has to fight a little, but it can be done even with your weakest characters. -With Lloyd's group, go through the northwest door and get the chests. Then shut down the device in the far west of the room. -Go back to the lobby and through the southwest door. Change the ring's function and fire it at the six glowing generators in the center of the room. -Go up the conveyer on the left. Step on the warp point to go to the other group. -With the other group, go through the southeast door and go through the lobby to the courtyard. Push the crates to get to another entrance on the east side of the building. -Go inside and head northeast. Go through the open doorway to the blue tile. Check out the tile, then go west. -From this room, take the west door on the lower level. Examine this tile too. Go back to the prison and head south. -Now you can fight the raybits on the switches to turn them on. This activates the warp Lloyd is standing on. -Boss Fight, then leave. -At Asgard, go up onto the pedestal to encounter the imposters. -Before you continue, go back to the Balacrut Mausoleum and talk to your imposters again. -Go to Hima.
